Pros
The installation and configuration were slick.We receive infrastructure security warnings from it. So, we know what is going on and what needs to be addressed.It has the ability to install agents. It is pretty straightforward. You can automate the process pretty easily.It is a very stable product.The quicker implementation of changes to our infrastructure from Alert Logic tell us if there are any problems.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.

Cons
This product needs to mature more. While it is a good product, there are some areas where it needs work.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.I would like to see it do initial scans and start capturing data, which it will truly analyze, not just be a reporting system saying, "Here is an email. Here is an email. Here is an email."The product needs to mature. We don't want to be bombarded with unnecessary issues and have the real ones slip through.The documentation, especially with the initial setup, 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.

The initial setup was complex because some of the configurations that we required needed customization.It could be easier to scale the solution if you are using it on-premise, not in the cloud.There are occasional bugs.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.Our ROI would probably be zero. We don't even use it. It sits in there. We get emails and just delete them. Around the world, we don't even use it.

There are additional costs associated with the integrator.My biggest complaint is the way they do pricing... You can never know the pricing for next year. Every single time you adjust to something new, the price goes up. It's impossible to truly budget for it. It goes up constantly.I hope we can increase the free license to be more than 5 gig a day. This would help people who want to introduce a POC or a demo license for the solution.
