Alert Logic Log Correlation and Analysis

Alert Logic is ideally placed to support and protect cloud infrastructure and services such as AWS hosted services. It is less appropriate for platform as a service as this would be addressed by the provider in question. It would also be ideally suited to on-premise and hybrid cloud scenarios to protect services from attacks and breaches.

SolarWinds Kiwi Syslog Server

I honestly don't think there is another Syslog server on the market that is as easy to use, manage, and set up as Kiwi Syslog. SolarWinds has created a great product. I think Kiwi Syslog is an excellent solution for really anyone in the market for a mid to large SNMP and Syslog collection agent. Kiwi has been a staple for almost as long as I've been in the IT industry. It's reliable, stable, and has years of excellent development behind it. Kiwi Syslog is one tool that, whether you use the free or the paid version, I believe a data center or any IT department truly needs.

Alternatives Considered

There are alternatives some of which have a greater overhead and require more in-house technical skills. Alert Logic provide a full service so for us this was a better solution.

I've not had any other interaction with other Syslog servers. The main reason for that is that Kiwi works outstandingly well at what it does. Simply put, I believe this product is a staple in the IT industry and will remain as such as long as they keep the tool current and improve it in the future.
