Analytics and reporting of user behavior helps to find anomalies and suspicious events

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use for this solution is to collect and correlate our logs. We also create appropriate alarms based on the contents of the logs.

Pros and Cons

  • "This solution provides me with various alarms, and I have found security issues with some of my other products."
  • "There is a lot of manual configuration required in order for the product to run smoothly, and I think that it could be made more automatic."

What other advice do I have?

There are many good products and solutions on the market, but for implementation and maintenance, I can say that the most important thing is local support. We do not have any issues with this product, and we have seen the benefits of it. It is easily configured and installed, and we have a local team to support it. It does have issues in terms of user experience, however. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Out of date and not scalable, but the reporting is good

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution to collect system events from different log sources.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature of this solution is the reporting."
  • "RSA enVision log manager is out of date and is not in use anymore."

What other advice do I have?

I still use this solution in my company every day but everything is out of date. I have learned how to write parsers. My recommendation to others is to be careful in the evaluation of SIEM solutions. There is no future for this solution. It does not exist anymore. I would rate RSA enVision a four out of ten.

Easy to deploy, good integration with OTX, and good at asset discovery and vulnerability scanning

What is our primary use case?

We provide information security services to clients. We are seeking some clients to provide monitoring services by using AlienVault. We are also providing AlienVault USM Anywhere, which is cloud-based and has integration with cloud platforms such as AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud.

Pros and Cons

  • "Asset discovery and vulnerability scanner are good features. The integration between this solution and OTX, which is an AlienVault platform for Open Threat Exchange, is also a valuable feature. It is also quick and easy to deploy, so you can quickly engage with a customer's environment."
  • "Its reporting tools need improvements. It would be good if they can provide integration with other ticketing systems. Currently, we only have integration with Slack and Jira. It is also a bit slow, and its replication engine can be improved."

What other advice do I have?

I would encourage others to go with this solution because it is easy to deploy, and it provides good tools to know more about your network and the traffic on it. Its reporting needs some improvements, but it fulfills the needs. I would rate AlienVault USM an eight out of ten.

Offers good security, integrates well, and they have good technical support

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and RSA NetWitness is one of the products that we implement for our clients. We also use it ourselves, They primarily use it for threat protection.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the security that it provides."
  • "It is not so easy to customize this product."

What other advice do I have?

They have just introduced an orchestration tool, although I don't know how it works yet. Overall, this is a good product and I recommend it. However, I always suggest doing a proof of concept first, to make sure that it meets your needs. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
