What is most valuable?

I like that it is physical hardware. With virtual, the processing can go bad and can get hung up. However, if it is physical, it's its own box. E.g., there is no noisy neighbor issue.

How has it helped my organization?

It has not improved our organization.

What needs improvement?

This product needs to mature more. While it is a good product, there are some areas where it needs work. If this is a cloud service, I shouldn't have to tell them how to develop analytics to tell me this is what is going on. They should be… more»

What other advice do I have?

If someone one was looking at this product or similar solutions, I will tell them, "Find something else." They have a great concept, but the product needs to mature. We don't want to be bombarded with unnecessary issues and have the real… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I don't have purchasing power. Management said, "We are getting this product. Here it is. Put it in." There was no discussion with the engineers.

What is most valuable?

It has the ability to install agents. It is pretty straightforward. You can automate the process pretty easily.

What needs improvement?

They have ideas and email you whatever they find, but they don't have a dedicated security team who will work on an attack or a specific security instance. As an MSP, it is better if we can hand off the security stuff over to a third-party… more»

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

Alert Logic has better competitive pricing than some of its competitors. Almost any product that is on the AWS Marketplace is super easy to subscribe to.

What other advice do I have?

Know what the product does and how to integrate it with your stuff before actually jumping into it. Compare other products which are doing the same exact thing, see what your company can do and what your company needs, and what your… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We do use Trend Micro as well. We are an MSP, so there are different clients using different products, and Alert Logic is one of them.

What is most valuable?

We receive infrastructure security warnings from it. So, we know what is going on and what needs to be addressed, e.g., things that we didn't have somebody looking for. It shows us these… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our organization's issue is that we implemented it and kicked the tires, but we never put an administrator behind it to own it and do a whole lot for it. There were a couple of select cases that we… more»

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

I was not involved in the pricing and licensing.

What other advice do I have?

We only use the AWS version.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Other solutions that we evaluated were Datadog and LogRhythm, but it is not an apples to apples comparison. Alert Logic was not my choice. I implemented it, and said, "Here you go guys. Kick the… more»

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… more»

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 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.

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.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

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

The stability is good. We trust it fully.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability seems good. This was one of the other features that we were interested in.  We have eight different accounts and are able to implement the solution across them easily. …
