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.

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

LogRhythm is good for providing a comprehensive view of the environment. It gives a great outline of whatever is going on in our servers and systems regarding security malfunctions. The SIEM sends real-time notifications when there are some occurrences; like creating a new user and inappropriate login attempts. It also avails a good use case that meets our HIPAA compliance.

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.

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

  • The LogrhythmNextGen SIEM Framework is very convenient and easy to manage, and it comes with a slew of tools and features that no other SIEM remedy can match.
  • The LogrhythmNexGen SIEM System is a fantastic solution for creating a streamlined event response management process and ensuring unbreakable endpoint security.
  • We can manage all of our safety mechanism logs and topologies from one location, allowing us to keep track of what's going on across the organization and what adjustments we need to take to improve security.

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.
John Keenan | TrustRadius Reviewer

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

  • The LogRhyhtm NextGen SIEM Platform is good in terms of looks, but sometimes it is too sophisticated to do the simplest of tasks like, for example: counting the number of occurrences of a particular IP address in total logs for that specific day or month.
  • They can provide a simple syntax bar like Splunk, for technical users who feel a syntax-based query is more powerful than just GUI.
  • There can be a feature that can help you customize the amount of data to be displayed without "drill down." A lot of the time, it isn't worth waiting 10-15 seconds to find 5% extra required information that could be displayed easily before drilling down.
  • It doesn't have any online community or proper documentation that has a user rating on it. A lot of the times, their documentation doesn't help us.

LogRhythm is focused on SIEM. That is their core business. Cost of operations, feature set and ease of use. The Log Rhythm support team is outstanding. Overall reliability is good. Reporting module needs some improvement and LR is promising that there will be significant improvements in future releases.

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.

LogRhythm does a rather decent job of making the functionality advanced (allowing for advanced keyword & field searching, use of "AND" as well as "OR" statements in the search bar) while keeping it accessible (by not requiring a specific syntax to do quick searches). This combined with a user interface that has headings and labels that are intuitive is very helpful.

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.

While LogRhythm support is generally quick to respond, the initial response is usually from a first line support engineer with general knowledge of the product. Any advanced or complex issues have always required the assistance of a higher tier of support, directly or indirectly. For a few occasions we actually used our PS hours to work on the issue.

Alternatives Considered

AlienVault OSSIM

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.

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

LogRhythm was simpler to set up and configure as well as extract information from. It also was less intrusive in terms of how many appliances were needed to implement. We were up and running within 5 hours to start accepting log sources. We selected LogRhythm as well since support is based in the USA in Colorado.

Return on Investment

AlienVault OSSIM

  • It's difficult to put a monetary value on security, but with proper monitoring and alerting, incidents will be easier to avoid.
  • Helps with your compliancy, as it automatically alerts you for critical events.
  • Collects logs in the cloud, so protected from local issues, like SAN failures.

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

  • With LogRhythm we can be completely sure that our system will be protected in its entirety since it is a SIEM tool very different from the others, it has a greater scope of short-term results and it is easy to integrate with the staff that uses it, although It is a high-cost software, the benefits are splendid, it has precise and very automatic functions to reduce the risks of threats that want to harm us.
