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

Pros
We use this solution to examine disparate log sources and provide a cohesive method to search for anomalous behavior.The feature that makes it usable is the web interface.The ability to investigate a particular period of time where you can analyze logs is its most valuable feature.It has centralized monitoring for our security operations. Therefore, it improves our analysts' work.The most valuable features would be the automation, reporting, and the support.The Web Console is my favorite. It enables me, at a glance, to see the health of the environments.Even other products we have that feed into it, instead of having to watch all of them we only have to watch one. For example, we have CrowdStrike, so instead of having to pay attention that solution - because their dashboard doesn't really pop when an alarm comes up - we can see issues with the red on the LogRhythm alarm. That is very nice.We take in around 750 million logs a day. We have a lot of products and that would be a lot of different panes of glass that we would have to look through otherwise. By centralizing, we can triage and take steps much more quickly than if we tried to man that many interfaces that come with the products.

This solution integrates easily and very well with other technologies.We are now able to completely monitor our environment so we can review what is there, which is a big win for us.It is easy to use.The most valuable feature is that if the scanning does find something, it quarantines it. Then you can decide what you are going to do with it.The most valuable feature is the capability to correlate different events from different platforms that we feed into it.It has performed well and delivered the results that I have been looking for.It has good technical support, which is available around the clock. You can call up anytime and get whatever you want. My queues are resolved.It is a good central viewpoint for issues. These can then be investigated in more detail on the subnet server(s)/endpoints.

Cons
I would like to see support added for Exchange 2016, and CheckPoint OPSec Lea.It is a product that is very hard to use.I would like to see more integration with more products that are out there within the same security field.Stability has probably been one area where Health Checks have not been great with the product. We have been told that they are going to improve Health Checks on product, though we do struggle with them on a daily basis.Scalability misses the mark sometimes, especially when you have an integrated disaster recovery built into the solution.My biggest issue - I know that they say they're doing it - is that the API-building is extremely important. They keep saying it's coming, it's coming. It's not coming fast enough. I don't care if they need to double their team size to get it out there quicker, the world is already in the cloud and we can't monitor it. That's a big problem for us. My boss keeps coming to me about it. That's an issue.My biggest complaint is documentation. Everyone tells me, "We have documentation on the Community site." I have searched for different types of documentation on numerous occasions, and it might be there, but it's not easily findable.My big thing is the easability. I don't like to go to two different systems. The fat client that you have to install to configure it, then the web console which is just for reporting and analysis. These features need to collapse, and it needs to be in a single solution. Going through the web solution in the future is the way to do it, because right now, it is a bit cumbersome.

We cannot add new data sources to the most recent version.I would like to see improvements to the user interface.I would like to see fingerprint recognition included in the next release of this solution.The only issue I have with McAfee is the amount of computer resources that it takes... it's definitely impacting some of the other applications that are running on a computer at the same time.There are some banking and transactional cases that are local, South America transactions. I would like to see them add features that can be used locally, to make those transactions more reliable.I have to purchase a new box now. Its existing box is not scalable and I can't use it anymore.Product currently requires Flash.Update to user interface from version 9 is cosmetic in some aspects, and after a few clicks you are back on the old interface.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Everything is expensive with LogRhythm, and you don't get anything for free.When it comes time to renew, they say, "This is what you are using. This is what we can do for you." So, they work with you on pricing.We have seen a measurable decrease in the mean time to detect and respond to threats. As it comes out new features and new releases, the window is becoming a lot narrower because you can pivot a lot more with the data. Therefore, the new features and enhancements are reducing that.The nice thing about LogRhythm is you can either use the agents, getting a certain number of agents with your license depending on how you want to go, and those agents do a lot of cool things, or you can use CIS Log host, then you have like an unlimited number of them.The solution has provided us with consistency and increased staff productivity through orchestrated automated work flows by at least 20 percent.I have seen a measurable decrease in the mean time to detect and respond to threats. We went from not detecting them to detecting them. We can actually pick up what is anomalous in our network now.In comparison to the competition, they are more affordable. This allows us to do more with less.I would recommend talking to the rep. That's the biggest thing because they will know what questions to ask.

The cost is dependent on the customer's environment and requirements.We pay for our licensing fees on a yearly basis, and there are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.
