LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

I will say that the LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform is well suited for an organization that is not very big but has multiple log sources. Or a lot of non-technical employees who do not know how to code or do write custom queries. Typically it is a good fit for universities and mid-range startups. This has an excellent interface, dashboard, useful for managing roles, but it doesn't provide the level of customization that a technical person with knowledge of coding probably would prefer. Software like Splunk and Elastic Search are much more flexible in terms of the granularity of the search.

To talk directly to the Simplify 360 management and take a call post that. One of the key aspects of investing in any enterprise software is how easy the implementation is and how much support that a company can get in the early implementation process. We have had a quick ramp up learning the tool and had constant interactions with the team at Simplify to better understand and manage issues or get questions answered

Pros

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

  • LogRhythm is a great SIEM to learn content on because the building blocks are very intuitive and easy to implement. All of the concepts relevant to content development are literally represented as drag and drop building blocks that can be easily manipulated.
  • The statistical building blocks contain powerful anomaly detection capabilities that are extremely difficult to implement in other SIEMs or not possible at all.
  • LogRhythm does better event classification than any other SIEM by far. My team typically drops all classification schemes from default installations of SIEMs and rebuilds them from scratch. I can actually use LogRhythms event classifications in rules without worrying about excessive partial matches or correlating unwanted events.

  • The platform does offer platform provide sentiment analysis, and it works great. The team has found that is very easy to keep up conversations and answer customer for clients or forward the infomation to said client.

Cons

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

  • While searching for log events is quick, the interface isn't as user-friendly as other SIEM products.
  • Many of the administrative/management functions are only available through the full LogRhythm desktop console, not through the web console.
  • The LogRhythm agent, when used for FIM and RIM, is very memory intensive.

  • I will like to see some improvement in the intuitiveness of the system. There are some great features hidden behind the curtains.

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.

We have a great relationship with the Simplify team and anyone in our team is able to reach out to them and get answers to questions is a wonderful benefit of working with them. Also we have collaborated with the team to enhance the product, which again is a very welcome gesture from a company that sells a product that helps enterprises listen in to people and support them.

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.

Support has always been fantastic for this product compared to many other support providers I've worked with. They are always very friendly and seem to be well trained and knowledgeable and never have to wait long for a solution. We usually get the issue fixed in the first call, but also we really haven't had to use support a ton so that's also a plus

  • 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

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.

In side by side analysis, Simplify 360 was much easier to set up teams, work flow and the brand monitoring was quite a bit more accurate

Return on Investment

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

  • The ability to search through logs in a centralized location really helps us to provide RCA (Root Cause Analysis) to management for outages. This helps us to quickly identify the cause of outages and thus saves money due to reduced downtime.
  • Being able to configure the alarms to provide real-time notification (and responses) to security events helps to prevent potential loss due to compromises (such as a fraudulent wire transfer).
  • The initial investment in LogRhythm SIEM is somewhat expensive, however, the appliance is built to your specific needs so you won't have to constantly be upgrading the device as your company grows.
