    Datadog is a no-brainer for any environment that relies on multiple servers. Even for one server, it's so much better to use for monitoring and alert capability than anything else I remember looking at before we started using Datadog. Teams can even use it to track their progress of investigating an alert so multiple people aren't unknowingly looking into the same exact issue unnecessarily.

    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

    Datadog

    • APIs, the ability to interact with the data we pull into data dog is key. We port the information over to Servicenow, so the ability to pull everything into DataDog, then Servicenow, is a key component of our success here at Wayfair.
    • Simple Interface - clean, useful, effective. Allows users to use DataDog for one reason, get work done.
    • Lightweight agent on hosts

    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

    Datadog

    • User interface could be improved in some areas, looking for host information and the agent install link takes a bit of time.
    • Configuration of the agent is generally done via a config file which is a pro and a con. It would be nice to have some UI to configure various agent options.
    • Billing isn't entirely straightforward, they could use more reports to figure out the source of your monthly costs.
    Kevin Van Heusen | 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.

    The user interface is quite intuitive with the exception of the network map. As a deployer of software, it is trivial to setup.

    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.

    The support team usually gets it right. We did have a rather complicate issue setting up monitoring on a domain controller. However, they are usually responsive and helpful over chat. The downside would be I don’t think they have any phone support. If that is important to you this might not be a good fit.

    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.

    • Buy professional services.
    • Buy and implement the system if possible.
    • Remember that the end point log configuration may require other teams in your company to assist you in getting the desired logs from all resources.
    • Attend the end user and daily operations training after a period of usage so you are not overwhelmed with information on concepts not yet seen.
    • Don't be afraid to call for help during your first months of use.
    • Don't close any ticket until you are sure the expected results are verified.
    • Use the community forums to discuss issues with your peers.
    • Watch the training videos offered by L R University.

    Alternatives Considered

    Datadog

    We are still trying other products, but people still like Datadog. After setting up a dashboard, it's great for monitoring instances on Datadog. Also, the DevOps team had a good time setting up Datadog. It means Datadog was way easier to set up compared to those others.

    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

    Datadog

    • One of our critical production databases went down a couple of weeks back. Just because we had the Datadog monitoring enabled for that database, Datadog sent the alerts to PagerDuty and we were instantly notified via pager and email alert. We could act right away and bring up the database within a few mins.
    • Ability to create custom screenboards have allowed us to track the critical and warning alerts in front of our eyes all the time
    Rajeshh Raghavan | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.
