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.

Sumo Logic

Sumo Logic is best suited, as of the time of this review, for a smaller-to-medium sized enterprise. Medium may be pushing it, depending on the deployment. The larger the enterprise, user access, and server agent count, the harder Sumo Logic is at scaling and realistically using. I have not managed or deployed other log aggregation solutions, so I'm not aware of whether competitors may suffer from the same setbacks as Sumo Logic. The ease of use, ability to deploy quickly, always having the latest version of the web portal (due to it being hosted), and being able to have data readily available for a critical time of the year were great benefits. Sumo Logic had also shown that they were taking our feedback seriously, and seemed to be working on resolutions to many of these issues for 2016. I'm giving a 7 out of 10 based on the Sumo Logic as it was in November 2015. If one is in talks with the vendor, the cons listed here should be mentioned in order to see if they have been resolved.

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.

Cons

  • Overall the product and service works well and addresses all our key requirements so we have no real negatives to share.
No photo available
  • Sumo is very slow compared to other programs like Splunk
  • Sumo only holds data for a certain amount of time, so if you want to reference an entry that was logged 6-months ago, you better have saved your logs in an external database somewhere because Sumo no longer has that information
  • Automatic parsing of data is not set up in Sumo as opposed to Splunk where it automatically parsed ALL logs

I was satisfied with the implementation, as at the time, it was the best way to implement the product with the available feature sets in Sumo Logic. User creation and management became more of an issue during continued use, instead of it being an issue related to deploying the product in our environment.

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.

We felt the features were comparable and Sumo Logic offered a better price. This was our first log aggregation tool so we don't have a lot of insight for competing products. I speak with many others specifically regarding Splunk and it seems to be comparable in many ways except price. I encourage others to try sumo for that reason.
