LogPoint
LogPoint is incredibly useful for pulling information from various log sources and combining them together to offer insights into suspicious or potentially malicious behaviour. It is not intuitive and can take some time to get used to. Once you're up and running though, it's easy to onboard new log sources. Search queries can again be tough to get used to, but LogPoint support is really helpful and can offer assistance with writing more complex searches.

Well, it's definitely suited to log in monitor most of the normal security infrastructure and collect security telemetry. It also extends well to Microsoft's entire suite with regards to data collection for things like Office 365, Power BI, power apps, and the like. It is also pretty good at collecting information from homegrown applications, especially if you're building in Azure.

  • Sentinel is by far the most efficient tool in supporting the highest number of solutions and products when it comes to data connection (or ingestion) and that too in the least complex manner possible. Most of the data connectors in Sentinel are very easy to configure and deploy.
  • Incident Management is undoubtedly one of the main USPs of Sentinel. With an easy-to-use UI, variety of utilities (adding tasks, manual triggering of playbooks, activity logs etc.) and provision of having an investigation map from the incident details page, Sentinel clearly stands out in this area.
  • I personally love the feature of integrating 'Threat Intelligence' to Sentinel from a free and one of the most reliable sources, Microsoft itself. This not only saves time for an analyst in checking the reputation of an entity but also allows to take actions on the suspicious entities at earliest.

Cons
LogPoint
  • Providing a full Cloud solution
  • Having more documentation for complex deployment

Microsoft
  • It takes some time to learn how to use and install it properly, and it does not connect effectively with external PaaS systems such as Salesforce CRM, Salesforce Commerce Cloud, and so on.
  • Microsoft can simplify the display of the logs to make them easier to study, and the user interface occasionally delays, which can also be enhanced.

Overall, LogPoint is pretty easy to get started with but faces issues with specific things (syslog on custom ports, script log collection, etc.).

The Microsoft Azure Sentinel solution is very good and even better if you use Azure. It's easy to implement and learn how to use the tool with an intuitive and simple interface. New updates are happening to always bring new news and improve the experience and usability. The solution brings reliability as it is from a very reliable manufacturer.

Support Rating
LogPoint
LogPoint support is outstanding. They are incredibly helpful, and on occasions have proactively identified issues with our setup, and logged cases on our behalf before we had even noticed there was a problem. If there is a search we need to write that is beyond our skills, LogPoint support can typically write it for us within a couple of days. They are always very responsive, and I am yet to have a bad support experience.

The key advantage of using Sentinel lies in Microsoft already being a renowned name in cloud services. Hence, the Collection of data at the cloud scale across all users, devices, applications, and infrastructure, both on-premises and especially in the MS Cloud, is super easy. Additionally, leveraging Threat Intel from Microsoft itself gives a sense of security, given their years of experience in the collection of intel. The AI and Machine learning features provided by MS is one of the finest.
