LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

A good scenario to have LogRhythm SIEM is when you have an enterprise environment with specific compliance requirements and/or if you have a critical environment you need to make sure is really protected, along with proper SmartResponse rules to take action when an alarm triggers. If your environment is mission critical, but your company is an SMB, LogRhythm might be overkill for you, as it's a solution that has a great upfront cost. The cost of investment [is] worth it given a minimum company size, but it makes sense only if you can really afford it.

Pros

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

  • One is alerting when certain events take place such as when a machine reboots. This is helps to gain more transparency as to what is going on within your network.
  • The features LogRhythm offers in terms of reporting are very helpful as well. For example we can do monthly reports on a given Windows server to show all activity on that server.

Cons

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

  • I know in the past LogRhythm was talking about a web application for administration. I think this would be a lot better than having an application to log into.
  • I think offering more video content on their site would also be beneficial. The last time I had issues I was reading through a lot of forum postings, I was able to get the job done but in 2017 video is the king of content.

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.

Training is lacking for the reporting and query building. Overall, the investigation tool is my most used feature. It is very easy to drill down when searching for an interesting event. The real time dashboard in the console is feature rich and provides graphical views and the ability to see associated logs.The alarms dashboard displays the most recent significant events, and the ability to track and document how the event is being handled.

Over the last couple of years, we have had some challenges requiring longer and higher tiered support. Log Rhythm was quick to assign a 3rd tier engineer to assist us in identifying and re-mediating those problems. They have also assisted in getting us to later versions. They are willing to hand hold during platform upgrades
