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

Pros
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.

We are able to diagnose problems before our customers.It helps a lot because we can troubleshoot issues pretty easily.We have used it many times to find a root cause of a live issue, then fix the problem in the applications.Support has been excellent. Sumo Logic's support staff is really good, both their account management staff and direct support.It provides easy visibility. I also like the shareable queries because we share a lot across groups.For many of our services, we use Sumo Logic to track errors and send notifications to our Slack channel, if there are issues. Then, we have our support people monitoring this, and they can react quickly.Scalability has been good for our needs. We haven't run into any scaling issues in regards to size so far.I have no concerns about the stability of the product. I feel it handles the stress we put on it very well.

Cons
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 some API gaps that are missing.We would like to have some type of predefined setup for the logs, making the setup easier by default.We would like the ability to drill down into a dashboard and get into deeper levels.There needs to be improvement on imported data which can be used within Sumo Logic to do more advanced queries.I would like better UI-driven functionality to create alerts and reports. Now, we have to understand the syntax, so it is a little difficult for someone to pick it up without using the manuals. If there was more of a graphical user interface, it would be beneficial.It would be nice to have an improved ability to scroll through logs within a time frame. Right now, we can search for specific errors. However, if we want to look for "before and after" within a specific time frame, it's not easy using the tool. This would be an improvement.It took a bit of trial and error to get it set up correctly based on everything we had to do. In the end, we had to send everything over HTTP, which was sort of a stop-gap.If you want to up your subscription through the AWS Marketplace, it can be difficult. You can't just go back to the AWS Marketplace, and say, "I want a bigger one now." You have to contact the sales team, then they do it on the back-end. This could definitely be improved.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.

The AWS Marketplace pricing is borderline. Every annual renewal, we always contemplate if we are getting what we think we could out of it or could we do it cheaper with some other product.The pricing is a little high, but for the features that we receive from Sumo Logic, it suits the price. For some small organizations, the price might be a little high.I don't pay the bill. I've heard the AWS Marketplace pricing is high, but I like the value.Pricing has been cheaper than some of the competing tools, like Splunk.If we went to ELK Stack, which is open source, it would have been less costly, but it would have required more development from our side.The only limit to the scalability of the product for us is how much we are willing to pay.The price scaling comes in a bit expensive.Purchasing the solution through the AWS Marketplace is very easy.
