Logz.io

Logz.io is well suited for infrastructure management and application monitoring. Our major issue is with the application management and issue tracking which can be done easily in Logz.io. Also the DevOps analytics tool is well managed in terms of ease of use. Our team is now relying mainly on the data analytics and monitoring tool on the application and on the cloud to get work done.

SolarWinds Security Event Manager (SEM)

It is well suited to monitor your Windows AD. You can get detailed login information and notifications like failures and lockouts. It also shows the IP address where it occurs so it makes locating the culprit a lot easier. It does well with monitoring for suspicious activity. It can alert you if It sees a client is trying to circumvent DNS so they can go through proxy avoidance tactics.

Pros

Logz.io

  • Emits alerts inmediately if somenthing is out of the ordinary.
  • It performs high-speed monitoring automatically so it does not require configuration.
  • Does not require any maintenance.
  • It has a very simple interface.
  • It offers its users great scalability.

SolarWinds Security Event Manager (SEM)

  • SolarWinds easily provides the much needed visibily into changes in an Active Directory (AD) environment. Email alerting can be configured to alert a team if an account is locked out, disabled by another users, or if users and/or computers accounts are created.
  • SolarWinds allowed a searchable audit feature. Microsoft Windows can be configured to log many different parts of a system, but search those logs can be difficult. SEM allows you to search for specific users or events.

Cons

Logz.io

  • Continue to make search easier to use
John Wessel | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Security Event Manager (SEM)

  • Compared to other SIEMs, there are features that are missing. Machine learning, automatic event correlation, ability to correlate multiple sources together.
  • The UI is clunky, and the *New* event log analyzer page felt really disjointed from the rest of the product.
  • In my experience, the dashboards were almost unusable. They persisted across login per device, and even then they sometimes would reset and go back to the ''Getting Started'' look.

It is pretty likely that we will renew SEM when the time comes up. It is easy to use and maintain so there isn't much of a need to replace this product. It is also a pretty fair price for the capabilities provided by the SEM

If you are familiar with SolarWinds then you can use this product it's as easy as that. If you have never used a SolarWinds product then it will take a minute to get how they do reports and make dashboards but that being said the tool is great and can make things very easy once you get a feel for how it works and get everything setup how you like it.

Their support team is the best in the world! They supported us in most of the critical times and helped to resolve the issue in real time. Also their email support is well maintained and never a mail is missed unanswered. Kudos to the support team of logz.io for maintaining professionalism.

The quality of support can vary depending on whom you end up speaking with. I was fortunate enough to work with a support representative who was very familiar with the product. He had even authored some of the support documentation on the website. On the flip side, I had two other experiences where I was simply directed to online training material.

Alternatives Considered

Logz.io

It is more focused in its approach which makes it really good for aggregating and analyzing logs. It has been way more helpful than New Relic APM for us. Data dog is nice but has some different focuses as well.
Skyler Cain | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Security Event Manager (SEM)

There may be more intuitive/automated solutions in the marketplace but because we already had a good relationship with SolarWinds, we decided to ultimately go with SolarWinds LEM. There are many resources available to help you make SolarWinds LEM work just as you need it to. It has never crashed or ran out of resources so we believe it is a good solid product.

Return on Investment

Logz.io

  • It helps us keep up with all the problems we may encounter.
  • Logz.io API helps a lot in debugging automation
  • We can use our set of tools to automatically look for common problems and monitor the current situation and in this way avoid our clients being alerted by some faults generated in the infrastructures of the applications.

SolarWinds Security Event Manager (SEM)

  • Faster turnaround when investigating access issues. LEM's search function allows you to quickly identify which ACL policy may be blocking a user's access - and as a result quickly resolve the issue.
  • Regulatory compliance. If you have regulatory compliance requirements for security monitoring, this product will likely check off a few boxes.
  • Stronger security posture. Not every company can afford a 24 hour Security Operations Center. Intelligent technology like LEM can help fill in those gaps to strengthen your security posture, and even allow for complex automated responses to threats during non-business hours.
