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.

RackFoundry Total Security Management

RackFoundry Total Security Management (TSM) is suited for most companies that have the same challenge as my team had. If you are looking to purchase one security tool and spend most of your allocated budget then I would not recommend this for you. However, if you are looking for something close to a single pane of glass, (granted there is no such thing) this solution does come close as they have the main components built in such as their FW/IPS/IDS/SIEM. Before selecting RackFoundry we had two options which were: 1) Upgrade our current solution and spend an overbearing amount 2) Search for new vendors and maybe procure 1-3 devices and then manually integrate them. Because this was a unified console and integration between devices was simple, we were able to obtain 4-6 security functions and we even had some sense of security visibility via the SIEM. It's not as powerful as Splunk or LogRhythm, but it definitely does the job

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.

  • It has been my first year with Rack Foundry and at this point I have to say everything has been smooth, from implementation to support.

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.

RackFoundry Total Security Management

Well I have experience with the big names: SecureWorks, IBM and Splunk. Individually their logging tools are much better than RackFoundry's Total Security Management. This is great for large corporations and urban cities, however not so great for municipalities, mid size businesses and companies who fluctuate between 1-7 members on their IT staff. Why? Because it takes too much of their resources and integration with other products gets a little rough as you will need to configure your preferences to theirs. When a company has stability it is great to have a name brand product, however renewals and upgrade costs can be taxing to an organization.

  • Overall the product has had a negative impact. Not necessarily on our environment but in the amount of time it has taken to deploy.
