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 most valuable feature is server virtualization. It's been very useful.We use the on-premises version of this solution for log analysis and to find details about certain issues.The trace log is the solution's most valuable feature. It's very helpful in troubleshooting problems.We are using it because we have a VMware product. It has its own built in dashboards for VMware products, and that's a good thing.

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.

The solution isn't user-friendly for admins.Documentation is lacking, including some guide as to how to use the expressions. It is not clear how to look for a log, for example. Some examples in the documentation might be helpful. I think that VMware had good documentation, but it's no longer hosted. The documentation is not as easy to understand as it was before.They should improve their web interface to make it more user-friendly.The solution is a very good tool, but it has a lot of limitations. One of the main issues is around how you define your retention policy, for instance, in Log Insight. It doesn't have it. You can't define a log retention policy. You also can't define the destination or location for your logs. All of the logs are in one index or one bucket.

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.

Pricing could always be lower. If it were free, I would be more satisfied.
