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.

Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

I think threat prevention on a certain level could be used in all Palo Alto deployments (even if just alerting without blocking).

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

Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

  • The threat engine has constant updates for important threats.
  • Wildfire helps supplement the Threat engine to help protect against 0 day threats.
  • The way the threat engine can be added at different levels to different zones and policies helps to ensure business essential traffic can have policies that are tuned to ensure traffic will flow.

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.

Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

  • Visibility into signatures and how they function/what triggers them would be very beneficial.
  • Lacking customizability compared to other tools.
  • Inability to write custom signatures easily and for traffic with small (less than 8 bit) signatures.

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.

Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

It is comparable but not as robust as other stand alone IPS/IDS.

Return on Investment

Intrusion Detection, part of Alert Logic Professional

  • The cloud service vs have an on prim dedicated person
  • 24x7 monitoring
  • The detailed threat analysis

Palo Alto Networks Threat Protection

  • New deployment hasn't been fully calculated yet.
  • With the addition of Panorama and central logging, event investigation has become more streamlined.
