Good correlation rules, competitive pricing, and good stability

Pros and Cons

  • "The correlation rules and the user platform are most valuable."
  • "They can add behavior analytics and AI or machine learning technology. They also improve their correlation engine. In addition to collecting logs from devices, they can collect the traffic and then correlate these logs and the traffic information."

What is our primary use case?

We use it for log and threat management and compliance.

What is most valuable?

The correlation rules and the user platform are most valuable.

What needs improvement?

They can add behavior analytics and AI or machine learning technology. They also improve their correlation engine. In addition to collecting logs from devices, they can collect the traffic and then correlate these logs and the traffic information. 

They can also improve a lot of rules and vulnerability assessment. For vulnerability management, they can add more features. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for three years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable. You just log in, and there are no issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I use it as software as a service. Scalability depends on whether I have included redundancy in the link or communication between my network and the third-party network.

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is okay. I have contacted them for technical issues, and they have dealt with those issues very well.

How was the initial setup?

Its initial setup is of medium complexity. I would rate it a seven out of ten in terms of complexity.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

They have changed the pricing policy. Its price is competitive. Its price is less than half of the price of QRadar, LogRhythm, and Splunk.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated AlienVault and ManageEngine.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution depending on the size of the organization and whether you require software as a service or on-prem. I prefer ClearSkies for small organizations that require software as a service and have up to 500 employees. In Saudi Arabia, we consider organizations with up to 500 employees as small. Organizations with 500 to 1,000 employees are considered mid-sized. Organizations with more than 1,000 employees are considered large. This categorization would vary based on the region. ClearSkies is the best for software as a service and small organizations with up to 500 employees.

I would rate ClearSkies SaaS NG SIEM an eight out of ten.

A stable, scalable solution with comprehensive dashboards and helpful technical support

Pros and Cons

  • "The scalability of the solution is amazing because it can collect a lot of data and you can have your own structure to monitor this data."
  • "An area of improvement would be the licensing of the solution. They need a free license, which would allow faster lead times."

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is to monitor Cyber Mission databases.

I create the diagrams to create an architecture that is then implemented. However, creating these diagrams are for my own learnings since these implementations are usually already available in the cloud office logs.

What is most valuable?

The features I have found most valuable are the dashboards. 

I monitor the complete capacity that users are using in the company.

What needs improvement?

An area of improvement would be the licensing of the solution. They need a free license, which would allow faster lead times.

They also need to update their documentation.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of the solution is amazing because it can collect a lot of data and you can have your own structure to monitor this data.

How are customer service and technical support?

The customer service/technical support was helpful and they answered my questions as best they could.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was easy, but you have to have a VPN connection depending on the security protocols in place.

What about the implementation team?

The deployment was in-house and took about two days with the correct licenses and permissions.

What other advice do I have?

It is important to define different guidelines to integrate Splunk in development, QA, and production deployments. Additionally, define the applications that will be used and the configuration of the databases to collect the data. If this is not done, there will be a lot of issues due to, for example, master access or permissions to use the database collector and blocks.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Customizable dashboards and reports, offers abnormal behavior detection, and the support is good

Pros and Cons

  • "You can customize the dashboards as well as the reporting."
  • "The documentation could be improved."

What is our primary use case?

We are using AlienVault for vulnerability scanning and detecting abnormal behavior.

What is most valuable?

This product is easy to use.

The support is very good and they offer managed services.

The dashboards are good. You can customize the dashboards as well as the reporting.

What needs improvement?

There needs to be more focus on the NOC and IIS in terms of developing applications for behavior detection.

The backup features use a lot of storage space.

The documentation could be improved.

Asset management and filtering are in need of fine-tuning and enhancement.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with AlienValut since 2018.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

AlienValut is a very stable product.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is perfect.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have worked with LogRhythm in the past, since 2015, and I find that AlienVault is a better product. We are facing a technical issue with LogRhythm, as it is still used in other parts of our organization. I am looking to finalize and unify the solution.

We needed better detection to give us information from the IS about geography or abnormal behavior that is breaching our security. Most of our products are web applications and this is important to us. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are currently looking into implementing a PoC for either ManageEngine or FortiSIEM.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering AlienVault is to implement a proof of concept to ensure that it meets their requirements. A PoC should be done before settling on any product.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
