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.

LogPoint
LogPoint is incredibly useful for pulling information from various log sources and combining them together to offer insights into suspicious or potentially malicious behaviour. It is not intuitive and can take some time to get used to. Once you're up and running though, it's easy to onboard new log sources. Search queries can again be tough to get used to, but LogPoint support is really helpful and can offer assistance with writing more complex searches.

Pros
AT&T Cybersecurity
  • 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.

Usability
AT&T Cybersecurity
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.

Overall, LogPoint is pretty easy to get started with but faces issues with specific things (syslog on custom ports, script log collection, etc.).

Support Rating
AT&T Cybersecurity
Everything is done through MSSP and installation pro services. Once those hours are burned up, then you're on your own without a lot of help. Typically the pro services hours aren't enough to get past 60 days and MSSP are hit and miss. We had a miss for installation helpers.

LogPoint
LogPoint support is outstanding. They are incredibly helpful, and on occasions have proactively identified issues with our setup, and logged cases on our behalf before we had even noticed there was a problem. If there is a search we need to write that is beyond our skills, LogPoint support can typically write it for us within a couple of days. They are always very responsive, and I am yet to have a bad support experience.

Alternatives Considered
AT&T Cybersecurity
Originally my organization leveraged alien value due to the lower cost of entry and ability to manage it as a service provider. Unfortunately, after several years of working with this tool, it became unwieldy to use as it felt that almost every useful report had to be created by hand. As other tools have come out with the ability to do automated responses such as Stellar Data processor, we have begun to evaluate alternatives.
