AlienVault OSSIM

If this is your first experience with a SIEM, this one can get you started. Take the time to learn the ins and outs of the product and you'll most likely be satisfied with it if your company is an SMB. If you need compliance reports, OSSIM is too small for you, you'll need to go with USM or USM Anywhere.

Check Point CloudGuard Cloud Native Security Platform

The threat intelligence feeds are nice in conjunction with Anti Virus, behavior analytics, and Intrusion detection capabilities make it an all-around solid product. The incident management piece could be better defined. No two-factor authentication from what we have seen so far is in place. The ability to detect misconfigurations is a little tricky to set up but will provide some positive insights.

Pros

AlienVault OSSIM

  • Asset discovery. Once installed in a centric, network-accessible server, OSSIM can poll all your endpoints with common protocols (SSH, SNMP, WMI) to detect and discover site-wide assets to monitor. You only need to group them by your own criteria once added to the product.
  • SIEM Event Correlation. You can define quite complex correlation rules to detect possible suspicious or malicious actions or attempts in your network, in order to categorize them as real threats or as false positives, thus streamlining your risk assessment and management.
  • Ease of installation. The entire AlienVault OSSIM is self-contained in an ISO file, which can be burned into a DVD or just mounted in your server of choice (physical or virtual) for deployment. The installation process is automated and quote verbosed, with options for static IP, email messaging and others.
  • Ease of access. Being AlienVault OSSIM a self-contained appliance, it can be accessed via web by any device that supports a web browser, being that desktops, workstation, mobile devices, etc. The OSSIM dashboard and other features are automatically rearranged to adapt to the particular device being in use.

  • Advanced Threat protection via Check Point CloudGuard proven ThreatCloud intelligence feeds for malicious IP's is a nice feature.
  • We have not set up the cloud bots auto-remediation functionality yet, but from initial testing, it looks to be something worth utilizing.
  • Having reporting tie in's with our ServiceNow asset management platform is very handy.

Cons

AlienVault OSSIM

  • The reports are clunky and a bit tedious to parse through.
  • Sometimes there's so much noise it's hard to tell what a true positive is. There are lots of false ones that trigger alerts but are normal behavior in many environments.

Check Point CloudGuard Cloud Native Security Platform

  • There is not a comprehensive amount of documentation on how to set up best practices.
  • Our initial set up assistance from Proofpoint approved vendor did not go smoothly.
  • The ability to add more customized widgets in the main overview screen would be helpful.

AlienVault OSSIM is far easy to use and manage - provided you know what you're doing. As any SIEM application, there is some background knowledge required in order to take advantage of the product's functionalities, such as the log correlation and analysis. Other than that, the application is quite usable and robust.

AlienVault OSSIM support has been very good. I have not had an issue that they were not able to quickly identify and provide a fix for. They are very quick to respond to open cases and are very knowledgeable in the product, which makes troubleshooting issues fast and solutions are provided quickly.

Overall benefits outweigh any negatives. Cost is high, but you get what you pay for.

Alternatives Considered

AlienVault OSSIM

Best bang for the buck. Darktrace did not perform even close to AlienVault. I ran them concurrently. AlienVault consistently found issues that Darktrace didn't pick up, and the Darktrace incidents were false positives. At one point, Darktrace stated I had 2,000 servers and I have 112.FortiSIEM is an awesome package but it's more then I need (or can afford). I would need to add staff, for at least the first year or so, just to get it setup and configured correctly.

We are also piloting Trend Micro Cloud App Security, but we don't have enough data to make a fair comparison, but from what I've seen, Check Point offers a much more comprehensive platform.

Return on Investment

AlienVault OSSIM

  • The only investment here is setting it up and I think seeing it's performance it's a fantastic tool and has a great positive ROI!

  • Having one single pane of glass dashboard helps cut downtime for one tech to assess the overall health of the cloud.
  • The cost was a little high, and the setup time was longer than expected to leverage the functionality we paid for fully.
  • Overall a good product so far
