What is most valuable?

This is one of the best open-source log management and log analyzer tools in the world.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution assists in tuning our applications.

What needs improvement?

The documentation for this solution is very important, and more needs to be developed. It was not as good as we expected, and because of that, we prefer to work on… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We use the open-source version, so there is no charge for this solution.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We used Splunk in parallel with this solution. In my role as a Security Operations Center Analyst, I think that Splunk is more useful for me. This is because I do not work… more»

What other advice do I have?

Our company uses Logstash for gathering the data, and Kibana for searching. The two are used together. This is a solution that I recommend. It is the best open-source… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The solution does not work as well as Splunk.

What is most valuable?

The visualization is very good.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution helps us because we can find all of the logs in one place. We can easily find a specific log in a specific time period.

What needs improvement?

There are connectors to gather logs for Windows PCs and Linux PCs, but if we have to get the logs from Syslog then we have to do it manually, and this should be automated… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We are using the free, open-source version of this solution.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We have used other SIEM solutions in our company.

What other advice do I have?

We are interested in learning more about plugins for specific firewalls or other products. The only problem with this solution is the development part, where we have to do… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options before choosing this solution.

What is most valuable?

Documentation is very good, so implementation is fine.

What needs improvement?

Email notification should be done the same way as Logentries does it. Because of the notification issue we moved to Logentries, as it provides a simple way to get notification whenever a server encounters an error or something unexpected happens (which we have defined using Regex). We set up a cron… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We used Logentries, but because it is open-source we moved to ELK as a part of cost-cutting strategy and evaluation of ELK. But the lack of a notification feature caused us to go back to Logentries.

What other advice do I have?

I give it a seven out of 10. They don't provide user authentication and authorisation features (Shield) as a part of their open-source version.

What is most valuable?

Elasticsearch Indexing and the Visualize tools of Kibana.

How has it helped my organization?

In my previous organization, I used this for central log management, increasing developer productivity.

What needs improvement?

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.

What other advice do I have?

I rate it at eight out of 10. It is scalable (if used properly), durable, and performance tested. If you are good to spend money, Splunk is way better for log management. There might be other use cases where you may need ELK.
