McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense is good for large organizations where there are many users and profiles that all need the same permissions and settings. It provides a fairly seamless experience and is effective at stopping threats with little input from end-users. That being said, if there are many profiles or individuals that all need specific settings, McAfee Advanced Threat Defense does work, just cumbersome.

Sumo Logic

SumoLogic is a fantastic log aggregator and analysis tool, a fine alternative to Splunk. Searching is powerful and mostly intuitive and results come fast. If you have application logs in clusters or Kubernetes pods that lose their logs every time they're restarted, Sumo is the solution for you

  • Runs in the background.

Sumo Logic

  • Sumo Logic allowed for our InfoSec team to ingest logs from our CDN directly, in real-time, instead of massive compressed archives that were sent every two-hours (the only alternative at the time). Sumo Logic had an app for these logs, that allowed us to easily get an immediate payoff from the data, with canned dashboard and saved searches.
  • Sumo Logic has a fairly extensive REST API when it comes to log sources, source configurations, dashboard data, searches, etc. Their wiki for the API is usually kept up to date.
  • Sumo Logic, during the period of time I had used their product, had added the ability to configure agents via configuration files. This allowed customers to configure their endpoints, and modify the endpoints, with configuration management tools like Chef / Puppet / Salt. Beforehand, the only option was to always make changes either via the web portal or REST API.
  • The solutions engineers were extremely helpful, and easily reachable when issues would occur.
  • Users at our company found it easy to get started, working on new dashboards, scheduled searches, and alerting. The alerting worked well with our third-party paging tool.

Cons

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

  • Can be heavy.
  • Not easy to override.

Sumo Logic

  • I like the help center, but I think if it had more GUI tools, it could help new users.
  • Pulling out data is sometimes hard to read, (Maybe if I knew how to export data better, this would not be an issue for me).
  • I would like better know-how on how to create reports that will help our business.

Personally, I have only called our internal IT team about needing changes to permissions, not McAfee itself, but our IT team can make the changes though it seems to take them longer than I would think it needs to take. As someone who administers a different program, with different permissions, I would feel they should be able to make the exceptions faster and easier.

I would give this rating because I attended a free Sumo Logic training at a WeWork in Chicago. I found the training very useful, and I learned a lot of features that I was not aware of before I went to the training. I like the idea that SumoLogic provides free training seminars. I am certified in level1, and I plan on certifying to level2.

I was satisfied with the implementation, as at the time, it was the best way to implement the product with the available feature sets in Sumo Logic. User creation and management became more of an issue during continued use, instead of it being an issue related to deploying the product in our environment.

Alternatives Considered

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

Zscaler Internet Access is lighter and easier to customize for smaller groups than McAfee Advanced Threat Defense. Personally, I have never called customer support for either product but I have heard that Zscaler has better, more responsive customer service as well. Both have an automatic launch upon boot-up feature and both block threats well.

Sumo Logic

Sumo Logic works very well out of the gate. For a small business it has given us what we need. I worked at a larger company previously, and we produced so many logs we had to create a custom logging service to handle them all. Cost and availability are big issues when deciding between the different services, whether self maintained and hosted, or provided by another company.

Return on Investment

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

  • Automatically turning on means no time used starting it or forgotten turn ons.
  • Ease of profile setting saves time.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sumo Logic

  • I can't think of any negative side effects other than it being SO slow sometimes, but compared to Splunk everything is slow
  • It's SO much cheaper than Splunk that the time it takes to query information is well worth it
  • In the times that we've had Sumo go down or stop logging information, we've found that we'd be absolutely lost without Sumo
