Passes compliance thresholds and standard requirements and has good performance

Pros and Cons

  • "It's an efficient solution."
  • "The console in older versions is not user-friendly."

What other advice do I have?

Arcsight was a technology we used for CM security information event management. We deployed it when I was an Information Security Senior Engineer in a company that provided electricity and water for Casablanca and neighboring cities. Arcsight was a requirement for the ISO27001 standard. It was a requirement because the company was certified. For the first audit, we presented the roadmap that contained the deployment of that kind of solution. After that, we launched an offering to different information system providers. We choose Arcsight as the CM solution. A requirement of our local…

Has very fast search operations but is not easy to implement and maintain

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case was to catch malicious activity happening inside our organization.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's a brilliant log collection tool, and it can handle hundreds of thousands of servers in a single shot to ingest the data."
  • "It's not a new product and is a bit complex. So, it requires a person dedicated to working on it and to know about it in and out. It is a huge product, and the search operation is a bit complicated for a new user or someone who has not used it for long. So for that person, it becomes a bit difficult."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend ArcSight Logger and rate it at seven on a scale from one to ten.

Strong scalability options, Flexible log collection and has an easy setup

What is our primary use case?

We focus mainly on the enterprise market where the customers have the requirement for log management and compliance. And most of the time we propose ESM along with the logger for SIEM requirements. We have multiple Logger customers here in Sri Lanka where we've implemented and maintained solutions for them.

Pros and Cons

  • "In terms of ArcSight Logger's most valuable feature, it is their scalability. ArcSight's real advantage is its scalability because they have two layers, including the logger layer."
  • "I would rate the technical support only 5 out of 10. The technical support is not satisfactory."

What other advice do I have?

I would advise anyone looking to implement this solution to have a good understanding of your infrastructure and to verify your architecture. You should be able to get an idea of their road map for the next five years to just verify what sort of effect it will be making on your system. On a scale of one to ten, I would rate it an eight.

A robust solution than can handle complex operations and analytics, but the reporting capabilities are limited

What is our primary use case?

ArcSight logger was used for storing your logs, long-term, in a structured way. You can search in it, you can structure your data in it, and you can generate simple reports.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's a robust, mature product and you can do some really complex operations and analytics."
  • "You have limited reporting capabilities and I wouldn't choose ArcSight Logger for this purpose."

What other advice do I have?

We are involved with technology that allows us to solve problems for clients that they cannot solve themselves. These are often complex environments. This solution has still been in use over the past year. We have a client who has the full ArcSight Suite. We are working on a solution to phase out Logger in the coming year and replace it with Elastic or Splunk. We can replace ArcSight entirely by Splunk and use Elastic for fast search. We think that there is more progress in that platform. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

High performance, easy query creation, and straightforward documents

Pros and Cons

  • "Some of the most valuable features I really appreciate are the performance, how quick the solution is, and how easy it is to create a query."
  • "The solution could be improved in maintenance settings."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it to others because the performance of the solution is overall great. One of the significant features are its high search capacity and if you know the query language you will be more comfortable. I rate ArcSight Logger a nine out of ten.

Expensive with poor support, but it gives us the basic information we want

What is our primary use case?

We have just upgraded to Splunk, so we're currently in the process of converting everything over from ArcSight to Splunk.

Pros and Cons

  • "ArcSight provides the basic information that we want."
  • "The integration with other systems could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a five out of ten.

Good search capability that is simple to use

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for archiving log feeds.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the search capability, which is simple to use."
  • "We have had problems with archiving."

What other advice do I have?

I am the technical support person for all of our on-site components. My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to use ArcSight ESM to correlate the logs and display them on the dashboard. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
