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

Splunk is a great data analytics tool for you if you have a large amount of data to analyze. Splunk provides accurate and real-time analysis of data through its dashboard. But if you not quite a technical person or not willing to learn Splunk before using it, I will not recommend it to you. Also, Splunk is less appropriate for static data.

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.

  • It gathers logs very well from almost all machine types - most SIEM related products don't do this quite as well.
  • It provides visuals to the user, giving you the ability to transform logs into visual charts (e.g. pie charts, graphs, tables, etc.).
  • Splunk is very quick in reporting and alerting on anomalies. There is little delay.

Cons

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

  • Splunk can be very expensive, and it is best to size out your environment first before procuring. Planning is key, and make sure to buy a license that is at least 2-3 times what you think you need.
  • There is a learning curve to Splunk. It takes a bit to get up to speed with the application.
  • Support is very good, but they will almost never tell you to ways to not use up your license. I had to figure that out myself, and ended up cutting out some useless logs that used over 50 % of my license.

We are using Splunk extensively in our projects and we have recently upgraded to Splunk version 6.0 which is quite efficient and giving expected results. We keep track of updates and new features Splunk introduces periodically and try to introduce those features in our day to day activities for improvement in our reporting system and other tasks.

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.

Splunk is proving to be a formidable replacement for Qradar, which we had as our previous SIEM. Qradar was powerful, but not easy to customize and quite limited. Splunk is not per se a "SIEM" but it can be in the way you used it. Also there is an Enterprise Security App that is available to buy and sit on top of Splunk, and that will take care of any concerns with needing a full-fledged SIEM. Splunk wins.

  • It has been helping with alerting on certain attacks on site and monitoring server health.
  • It slows down during high traffic volume days - ( major 5 days of the year )
