We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The dashboard is the solution's most valuable aspect. It brings everything into one central point where I can actually look at it and go, "Okay, I understand what's going on."The most valuable features of this solution are the data correlation and vulnerability assessment.OSSIM is the only solution that includes the large number of modules that we need: a vulnerability scanner, a network IDS system, a host IDS system.The open vault component and the checking of vulnerabilities are the most valuable features. The page management helps with this. If you know how your device is vulnerable at least you can do something about it.You pay monthly for the solution. I think it's one of the best products. If you compare with other companies, like LogRhythm, etc., the top 8 or 10 CMs, I think Alien Vault has the best price-performance ratio.The initial setup was straightforward. I didn't have any problems.With AlienVault you get everything in one box.The solution has a very good open source community, and whenever we have problems, we are always able to resolve it online.

SolarWinds is a hybrid solution so you can use it across many platforms.The most valuable feature of this solution is the visibility into both attempted and failed logins.We did previously use a different solution, but SolarWinds is much better. It's easy to interact with SolarWinds. It's easy to operate, easy to configure and is generally easier compared to what we were working with before.It performs network behavior monitoring, log monitoring, and disaster recovery monitoring.The most valuable feature is the ease of use for the end user.

Cons
I would like the solution to be able to integrate with my firewall, my IDS and my Honeypot solutions so that it can provide real-time reporting as things occur and then have alert sent to me on my phone when suspicious activity is happening.The price of this solution is very high and it could be cheaper.We need more dashboards and we need more customization for dashboards.The initial setup was a bit complex. You've got to do a lot of reading. It's not an intuitive implementation.The user interface could be improved.It's under heavy traffic. If you have heavy traffic, the system is slow.Sometimes technical issues take very long to get resolved.The solution needs more integration with cyber intelligence systems.

There are no multiple dashboards which would allow you to see information side-by-side.I would like to have a more customizable dashboard.There is no correlation made between log entries, so no threat information is presented.The reporting could be more robust. It can be a lot more granular and that will make it a lot more useful in comparison to how it is incorporated at the moment.I would like to be able to dig deeper into the visibility of events or incidents to determine whether they are malicious, such as by doing behavior analysis.The solution's technical support is okay, but we don't have an SLA, and sometimes the response times are very slow.Training for this solution needs to be improved, as new employees are sometimes unfamiliar with the product.It can be difficult for users who are inexperienced with the solution.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The licensing fees for the non-community edition are paid on an annual basis, and there are no costs in addition to this.OSSIM is free.The solution is open source, so it's free to use.AlienVault pricing is the best. Whatever cost you are paying, you are getting a return on every penny... It's not like your IBM, your QRadar, or Splunk, where the cost is too high.

Licenses can only be purchased in blocks of fifty at a time.The pricing model would benefit from having package deals with other SolarWinds products.We do a yearly license renewal. For a year, the solution costs roughly $500,000 USD. There are no costs beyond this yearly fee.

Overview

AlienVault OSSIM, Open Source Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), provides you with a feature-rich open source SIEM complete with event collection, normalization and correlation. Launched by security engineers because of the lack of available open source products, AlienVault OSSIM was created specifically to address the reality many security professionals face: A SIEM, whether it is open source or commercial, is virtually useless without the basic security controls necessary for security visibility.

When TriGeo was acquired by SolarWinds, TriGeo SIM became known as SolarWinds Log & Event Manager. This product is a leading Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) product and log management solution, which provides log collection, analysis, and real-time correlation.
