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.

The most valuable feature of this solution is the visibility into both attempted and failed logins.We did previously use a different solution, but SolarWinds is much better. It's easy to interact with SolarWinds. It's easy to operate, easy to configure and is generally easier compared to what we were working with before.It performs network behavior monitoring, log monitoring, and disaster recovery monitoring.The most valuable feature is the ease of use for the end user.The out of the box reports and dashboard. It was easy to trim down these windows to something we could quickly use.

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.

I would like to be able to dig deeper into the visibility of events or incidents to determine whether they are malicious, such as by doing behavior analysis.The solution's technical support is okay, but we don't have an SLA, and sometimes the response times are very slow.Training for this solution needs to be improved, as new employees are sometimes unfamiliar with the product.It can be difficult for users who are inexperienced with the solution.I imagine we will have to develop our own reports soon, this seems to be more cumbersome.

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.

We do a yearly license renewal. For a year, the solution costs roughly $500,000 USD. There are no costs beyond this yearly fee.Licensing is on devices, so if you have many, then this may be high.
