Good technical support but it is complex to use and resource-heavy

What is our primary use case?

We use LogPoint for log collection. We have a specific use case around a system that was not able to provide this kind of correlation. However, we are going to get rid of the legacy platform within the year and will be moving away from LogPoint.

Pros and Cons

  • "Technical support is responsive and very friendly."
  • "The interface needs things like wizards that will assist with creating complex correlation rules."

What other advice do I have?

We are moving away from this solution and are looking for something automated, like Darktrace. My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to first have a very clear understanding of the use cases, what you want to use it for, and what you want to report. Don't be afraid to look for a cloud-based solution, especially when it comes to SIEM products.

Customizable dashboards and reports, offers abnormal behavior detection, and the support is good

What is our primary use case?

We are using AlienVault for vulnerability scanning and detecting abnormal behavior.

Pros and Cons

  • "You can customize the dashboards as well as the reporting."
  • "The documentation could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering AlienVault is to implement a proof of concept to ensure that it meets their requirements. A PoC should be done before settling on any product. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Scalable with good searching capabilities and good support

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for monitoring an enterprise data center, globally for 12,000 devices.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the searching capability and real-time operational use."
  • "Some of the cloud apps need improvement."

What other advice do I have?

Like any complex enterprise CM tool, you have to have a strong support organization. People who are good at understanding Linux operating systems. You also need a strong technical support team in-house. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
