We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
AlientVault has helped us in improving our visualization and incident response during cybersecurity situations.Log-monitoring and alerting enable us to know when things happen that we need to know about.The dashboards are very descriptive and contain just the right amount of information. The activity alarms and events contain a plethora of data that is very descriptive and useful.AlienVault provides a checklist answer when using SIEM.I can easily check (in one place) all the logs and data in relation to attacks. It also gives me an overview if a server is not configured properly.Its powerful correlation engine helps reduce time in manually correlating events.The main menu: You can see everything there, what is happening on the servers, and in the logs, you can view more details of each event.It has allowed us to see what is happening on our servers.

Cons
Different functions to customize reports should be added.they seem to have bugs from time to time that go unfixed for a while and that is frustrating. I'm not saying the product needs to be bug-free, but they need to be responsive to bugs.The only room for improvement I can mention is the initial installation procedures. I found that the online installation instructions for the product were missing important details, they lacked necessary steps.We develop additional rules and scripts to make it more usable.Plugins could be better utilized, as some of them do not recognize all logs.It was easy on PoC, but when we got to the product it was different story. We had to learn the product again and got feeling that the PoC was a different product.The only complex area of the setup was writing the custom scripts.It should be able to communicate with other security solutions to stop threats.

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.

There are a few things I would like to do with a few more complex queries which I am not able to do right now, because it is a SaaS solution.Since I used the beta, improvements are to be expected. The dashboard options could have been clearer, but I believe it is more a problem with the limited documentation available at the time.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I don't think the product's pricing is a good value because they try to raise the price 50 percent every year... AlienVault needs to understand that not all customers are huge enterprises... Their sales team is way too aggressive. The price they advertise is not always the price you get.So far, I feel the product's pricing is a good value. The technology is decent. You get what you pay for. I think it's fair.​The vulnerability management solution is worse than buying a Nessus Professional license.​The ROI is quite good.Use an MSSP instead. It is much cheaper.We ran a few PoCs. The price and feature set were the best with AlienVault.Negotiate the best package for your environment.It has good pricing.
