Intrusion Detection, part of Alert Logic Professional

If you have a web platform or any other exposed system, it's important to have an IDS in place. This can be difficult to do right, and if you're a smaller business, you can't have a team dedicated to managing security. Alert Logic takes that burden, makes sure it's working right, and allows your team to focus on your product. With that in mind, it's not a silver bullet, and I took off one point ONLY because I think it would be harder to justify in a large enterprise with a security team already in place. Maybe there's another product out there that'll solve that use case, but Alert Logic was perfect for our needs.

Juniper SRX

SRXs seem to be well suited at the enterprise level for plain routers, firewalls, and IDP/IDS. They work well on MPLS and Ethernet, including Internet. I have 3 SRXs also performing edge duty, with 2 in a high availability (HA) cluster. The Juniper line of SRXs provides a good range of scaling from small business to extremely large enterprise. Wire speed is a common comparison factor and Juniper shines in that area.

Pros

Intrusion Detection, part of Alert Logic Professional

  • The cloud managed service; the cost benefit and 24x7 monitoring
  • The Alert system went from possibly 24 hours to 1 hour
  • The benefit of nothing having to write our own queries

Juniper SRX

  • The ease of use for the CLI is a huge benefit. Unlike the Cisco platform, all changes are implemented in a commit statement vs. live on the box.
  • The devices hit a price point that is very competitive.
  • Dynamic routing support is a huge win.

Cons

Intrusion Detection, part of Alert Logic Professional

  • When we chose Alert Logic, they did not have an IPS solution but intended to use another product to protect our environment and web farm.
  • The product relies on someone to call you after the attack starts.
  • There are no protection mechanisms once an attack is noticed to shut it down. However, using a layered defense as we do, it did not affect us nearly as much as without.

  • My only real criticism of the product is that it's hard to figure out how to upgrade the firmware from the CLI via TFTP via the docs, but it works great once you get it sorted.

This is the one area where I have a beef with Juniper. When I called into Cisco TAC, 90% of the time, the first person I spoke with was able to resolve my issue. With Juniper TAC, 90% of the time, the first person I speak with is not able to resolve my issue, seems to almost be reading from a script, and must escalate my ticket. All of which takes time.

Alternatives Considered

Intrusion Detection, part of Alert Logic Professional

No one else had a good product offering married with the high level of support. The cheaper options such as Alien Vault all seemed to have inferior products and little/no support. And the really big enterprise products might work great, but require a great deal of skills to set up and maintain. Alert Logic pretty much fits in a category to itself.

Juniper SRX

Juniper SRX is significantly better in every category.Cisco ASA was terrible. The config is unintuitive and not easy to manage. Cisco left the ASA abandoned from any kind of meaningful software updates for around a decade.

Return on Investment

  • Although I'm not a part of the budgeting process, I do know that by using Juniper SRXs, we were able to get the products we needed with much less issues and justifications as other product we've purchased in the past.
