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.

I would suggest performing an initial deep-dive and analysis of the current state of your network and workflow in terms of maintenance, deployment, and management. If it takes quite an amount of effort for a single person or a team, for an extended period of time, then I would highly recommend taking a look at and perhaps deploying Cisco StealthWatch as it will solve all of the items above.

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.

  • Management Consoles - they are simple, easy to understand, centralized, organized, and have complete visibility and control.
  • Encrypted Traffic Analytics (ETA) - golden functionality that provides us more visibility without the need to decrypt traffic.
  • Extended data - longer data retention that is very helpful to our scalability issues.

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.

  • The StealthWatch interface is clunky and broken into 2 parts, both an HTML console and a JAVA console. This causes issues as one is completely different than the other.
  • Licenses are eaten up very quickly and can be pricey.
  • Upgrading StealthWatch is more tedious and time consuming than it should be.

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.

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

We had an amazing experience with assistance during the deployment and hand-over phase to operations. They were very informative and provided proper guidance so that we can further develop on our own.The downside is of course the monetary requirement, but it was very well worth it. It will allow the administrators, users, and support members to fully utilize the functionalities and tailor them to the day to day workflow and needs.

  • 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.

NTOP is the only thing out there, in my opinion, that provides similar type of visibility. But StealthWatch is the product all vendors should strive to emulate. It is easy to install; it is easy to configure; it works as advertised (and then some). I do recommend the three-day work shop they occasionally run - or some onsite training. The product is feature rich and the training will help you get the most out of it.

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.

  • ROI - it has good ROI in terms of functionalities and after-sales support.
  • Management - it is easy to handle and understand, it has all the functionalities to control the administrative tasks.
  • Available resources online from Cisco and vendors and good testimonials, too, from partners and existing customers.
