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

If you manage a lot of different systems or frequently find you're jumping between different log files or different platforms when troubleshooting an issue or analyzing activity, then Loggly just might be a perfect fit for your needs. If you host one website or service and simply need to keep tabs on the logs for that one site, then Loggly might be overkill. But beyond that, Loggly can certainly save time and headaches.

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

  • At times I do find navigating the dashboard for very specific functions to be difficult.
  • For entry level security analysts or administrators I feel can get overwhelmed with the amount of data available from a single platform (in a good way)
  • helpful to understand Linux for certain tasks

We have been using AlienVault USM Appliance for nearly 3 years. The power and flexibility of the device for IPS and IDS is amazing. We are able to identify threats and stop them before damage can be done.

Support

AlienVault USM7.6
Based on 24 answers
I have a 50/50 rating on this because they have been helpful in one aspect but not in another. They seem to be fairly responsive to requests, but like with my most recent request no solution offered. that is not truly a fair statement, but rather no solution unless I agree to pay additional fee's. From conversations with both our sales rep and another representative they both indicate that we have 3 years of extended support, but the problem reported to them is not covered under our support agreement.

Implementation

Pre planning is crucial. We typically preconfigure all appliances before they are deployed to the client so that the only thing left to do is deploy the agents.

Alternatives Considered

I recommended Alert Logic, but management was drawn to the much lower price of AlienVault. Alert Logic seems to have a more mature product and has some of these features that have been lacking in AlienVault.

I have tried New Relic, but they have multiple services. While Loggly is all about logs, so you're focused on what you want.
