Pros
It prevented my users from getting infected by ransomware. It can also pinpoint the story behind every virus or network attack to our environment.It has absolutely improved the efficiency of our security team. We use it internally as well. It is such a powerful tool that our internal security team became a customer of our ArcSight managed service.The tool sends an automated mail to all the operators, which makes it easy to share the information and reporting.​Once the rules are defined, it is capable of detecting minute changes in the systems, which are effectively based on the entries in the log.​​It is a vital tool for live monitoring and helps us to understand the traffic alerts of any major issue on the network, thereby reducing hacking attempts.Once the rules are defined, it becomes easy to detect changes and generate automated logs.The real-time analysis adds value.Customization. ArcSight gives you a platform to on-board out-of-the-box devices with a more accurate way of collecting desired logs/events.

Cons
The product should include a lot more predefined scenarios so the adopted company will have knowledge and a broader skill set in security and network.The initial setup is very complex. We had to architect a deployment which allowed us to incorporate an ever growing number of customers into our hosted instance of ArcSight.Customer service during the transition from HPE to Micro Focus was abysmal where it became disruptive to our service delivery.The analytics feature is not reliable and needs improvement for more detailed analysis.​​In certain cases, this product does have false positives, which the company should work on.They should try to include business logic vulnerabilities in the SIEM tool.HPE ArcSight has a quite steep learning curve.Administration of ArcSight is not an easy job. The admin needs to be well experienced in it to identify the root cause and fix it.

AI is superb but need improvements.Technical support is good, but not great.The tech support is not that good.The Indian tech support is not helpful.It is not app based.The initial setup was complex, and it took six months.QRadar needs a lot of fine tuningThe quality of technical support depends on the IBM support person. Sometimes, it's hard to get the right person on the other side. A ticket coordinator could be the key to better quality delivery.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Thanks to Micro Focus's licensing model, as an MSSP, we are able to see a complete return on our investment almost immediately.Customers without a ton of resources to dedicate to deployment may be better served by a managed ArcSight service.​It is best to be an institutional buyer and directly contact the sales team, as they can provide over-the-top discounts for bulk orders.​Aggregation can help a lot in pushing down licensing costs.ArcSight is pretty expensive compared with its competitors. I believe that is fine as it provides value.HPE ArcSight pricing might be more expensive than other SIEM solutions, but in my opinion it has powerful features and great flexibility in developing complex use cases.

The cost of this product is expensive.It is very expensive.A good approach would be to begin with an On Cloud subscription, then later on do a more exact sizing.Pricing and licensing are competitive. Their new licensing options allow logs to bypass the correlation engine for a flat rate, which is also appealing for log data that is compliance-driven for a small amount of money.Pricing (based on EPS) will be more accurate.An X-Force feed is free with QRadar.It is expensive. It is not a product that I can provide for SMBs. It is a program that I can only provide for really large enterprises.The maintenance costs are high.
