AlienVault USM

Since AlienVault is a versatile tool, having versions for various cloud providers as well as virtualization frameworks, it adheres to the most diverse scenarios. Another strong point to be highlighted is how the company is constantly improving the product. AlienVault is famous for the effort the company puts behind the tool, and it is being improved constantly by adding new resources.

Loggly

Loggly is must used logging service for all your infrastructure. It is really helpful when you are managing multiple servers. It keeps track of everything starting from system logging to your application logging. You don't have to worry about rotating daily logs and all, just install an extension/package and you're ready to go. If you're building small-scale application then I won't recommend it.

Pros

  • AlienVault enables integration with external technologies, thereby broadening its scope and possibilities.
  • AlienVault has a dashboard customization and reporting scheme that makes it flexible to query your data, allowing you to model the tool according to your needs.
  • AlienVault will make you forget the need to consult some information on AWS Cloudtrail. It extracts the data from there and delivers in a much more efficient way.
  • With a single tool you can monitor your cloud and on-premises environment.

Cons

  • Their commercial policy on stored data makes you need to filter out some information before it is stored.
  • Their new agent does not allow you to create local filters, which can easily lead to the overrun of monthly contracted storage limits.
  • It does not allow you to create log analysis plugins. If it were allowed, it would be possible, for example, to create a plugin for analyzing the logs of an application created by your company.

Alternatives Considered

None at the time as the product was purchased before I joined the organization.

The log aggregation software environment is very competitive. Many offer close to the same services and it's very hard to differentiate between the two. Loggly is easy to use and easy to manage and the reason why we went with them for this specific project. Also not having a proprietary software installed and maintained on the server is great
