Alert Logic Review

It improves our security by scanning containers correctly and quickly

What is our primary use case?

We use it for security scanning containers on Kubernetes. We have containers running on Kubernetes, so we use it to scan for vulnerabilities.

How has it helped my organization?

It improves our security. Before, we didn't have anything scanning our containers. We had software scanning all the physical servers, but we had nothing to scan our containers. With Alert Logic, we can do that.

What is most valuable?

It scans correctly and quickly. For example, we had an issue where we had Bitcoin mined and sold in some of our containers, and Alert Logic was able to find it and alert us about it. Then, we were able to find out why the containers were being hacked and killed it.

What needs improvement?

I would like more data on the alert payload. It would be good to have the ability to customize the alert payload to add whatever data that we want on there. Right now, it is a bit limited.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's stable. We've not had any issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. We have been adding more AWS accounts every day. We have been adding more containers, but we are not seeing any issues.

We have 240 AWS accounts. We have about 1000 containers, but we have 300 to 400 services which are running with containers on the cloud, and we are still able to continue to scale.

How is customer service and technical support?

I have not contacted the technical support.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The security team chose the product. I wasn't involved in the process.

What other advice do I have?

Give it a try. It is very useful.

The product is integrated with a product called BigPanda. It's an alerting platform, and it post alerts through SAP to BigPanda. The integration was good, but standard.

We have only used the AWS version.
