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.

Splunk Enterprise

It is very well suited for large environments that have sensitive data or have a lot of devices. It is also well suited for IT management that likes pretty pictures of how their environment is running. It is very suitable for companies that spend too much of their IT engineers' time on audits, compliance and reporting to groups outside of IT.

Pros

  • Alert Logic provides very technical solutions to address security risks. However much of the benefit is from a human level understanding of the threats seen.
  • As a company, they are profiling thousands of companies and are better able to predict threats such as denial of service attacks and warn organisations ahead of time.

  • Log search is very good with this tool.
  • Splunk search query language is just very good. You can easily run some analysis using this language
  • Generating reports is a very good feature of this tool.
  • Detecting anomalies and reporting them is just fantastic.

Cons

  • Overall the product and service works well and addresses all our key requirements so we have no real negatives to share.

  • Users CAN write queries that are non-optimized causing both performance problems or unexpected (as in not what they wanted) results. It would be great if Splunk engineers could come up with some way to 'model' the queries and instruct users on query performance gave x number of records... and possibly an example of results - say using 100-1000 records - so that the user can see what they're going to get.

I think price would be the only reason why we would not renew

You can literally throw in a single word into Splunk and it will pull back all instances of that word across all of your logs for the time span you select (provided you have permission to see that data). We have several users who have taken a few of the free courses from Splunk that are able to pull data out of it everyday with little help at all.

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.

Haven't evaluated any other tools. Of course there are many other vendors in the space but Splunk continues to be the market leader and to maintain its position in Gartner's magic quadrant. Haven't used Elasticsearch but hear very highly of it, offering a better licensing model with a smaller learning curve compared to Splunk.
