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

Pros
We haven't had any crashes or bugs. It is stable.The ability to customize the solution in great detail is its most valuable features. We can customize the use cases and also have the ability to do scripting. We can personalize our dashboard as well. The scalability the solution offers is quite impressive.The most valuable feature is the level of detail that you can see about certain events, even when they do not come up in the console.In our country we are a little bit private in terms of solutions, so we are just starting to use the basic data capture. Now some users can start to use additional features that come with Micro Focus ArcSight like user behavior analytics for investigating.The ESM use cases are the most valuable. It enables us to use the big data collection inside our company. We are able to create use cases for whatever it suits and I find that the most interesting part of any SIEM solution.

The visualization is very good.It is the best open-source product for people working in SO, managing and analyzing logs.ELK documentation is very good, so never needed to contact technical support.

Cons
In the next release, I want to see more intelligence.The solution should make it possible to integrate network analysis features.I would like to see better scheduling in the next release of this solution.I think the ArcSight team should try to simplify legacy products for the customers, because that product is not easy to use or to work with. It needs more more competency or appeal to use. We hope Micro Focus is trying to resolve this.The speed of Logger indexing and searching for certain bugs for some queries that we provide could be improved. It can handle a huge number of logs but it can be improved.

There are connectors to gather logs for Windows PCs and Linux PCs, but if we have to get the logs from Syslog then we have to do it manually, and this should be automated.If the documentation were improved and made more clear for beginners, or even professionals, then we would be more attracted to this solution.Email notification should be done the same way as Logentries does it.We set up a cron job to delete old logs so that we wouldn't hit a disk space issue. Such a feature should be available in the UI, where old logs can be deleted automatically. (Don’t know if this feature is already there).They don't provide user authentication and authorisation features (Shield) as a part of their open-source version.Authentication is not a default in Kibana. We need to have another tool to have authentication and authorization. These two should be part of Kibana.We had issues with scalability. Logstash was not scaling and aggregation was getting delayed. We moved to Fluentd making our stack from ELK to EFK.

ArcSight Logger is very expensive compared to their competitors, but when we talk to the customer and explain what the features are and how we can scale, they understand. Still, ArcSight is more expensive than the competition.
