Arcsight Enterprise Security Manager (ESM)

Arcsight was one of the best SIEM tools at the time it entered the market and has advanced features that make it a favorite for a number of organizations, but they lack to upgrade it with the time. Some of there features are still at their best but required timely update to manage with the other competitor present in the market.If I have to choose the key points, they would be :
  1. User management.
  2. Smart Logger.
And if I were to point out where it is currently lagging :
  1. UI needs improvement.
  2. Slow search functionality.

It is perfectly suited for large organizations aiming for providing web security to the customers or also if they are interested to setup their own security perations center . It is one of the leading security tools in the market and offers comprehensive capability in dealing with web attacks

If you go for platinum support, it's good as you have priority for support. They will take remote control of your machines and troubleshoot. Also, they arrange requirement SEM depending on the issue.

Arcsight Enterprise Security Manager (ESM)

We are currently using Elastic search as well for better management of our devices and to keep all the loopholes filled that have been created around the non-upgraded version of Arcsight Enterprise Manager. Elastic searches have the latest mechanism to fetch logs and correlated data, as well as process them in a more useful way.

It was more advanced and comprehensive . The personalized dashboards and view was the major likeable difference . The correlation could help us analyze better and was more effective , the drill down features gives more information at one go

Return on Investment

Arcsight Enterprise Security Manager (ESM)

  • A few years ago this would have been the best buy on the market but with applications like Splunk I'd say its not giving you as much ROI.
  • Still does the job and gives us a positive ROI as we bought this over 6 years ago.

  • The level of administration needed is a little too high
