My advice would be to go ahead with the product because it really is a very good tool that adds a lot of value. I would also recommend that the person implementing the product should have a very good working knowledge of IT infrastructure. I would say that IT infrastructure is more of a requirement than a background in IT security, and it certainly makes the process a lot more straightforward. The biggest lesson that I have learned from using Alert Logic is that for the amount of money invested in the product, the sense of security and the tightness that it gives to the environment is a real selling point for clients. I would rate Alert Logic a nine out of ten.

We are using the latest version of the solution at the moment. I do not have the version number on-hand, however. I would recommend the solution to other organizations. It's been a positive experience for us overall. I would caution that, in the beginning, people who are first-time users, will find it a bit complicated. They will easily learn quickly once they started using that. It's a very easy process to get habituated to. I've been a production support engineer for the past 10 years. In only the last three years I've been using Alert Logic. Previously, I have faced a lot of problems finding the logs. This solution helps me a lot. There are so many times it's helped to identify the root cause - and quickly. Overall, I would rate the solution at a nine out of ten.

If someone one was looking at this product or similar solutions, I will tell them, "Find something else." They have a great concept, but the product needs to mature. We don't want to be bombarded with unnecessary issues and have the real ones slip through. We use the product on-premise.

Know what the product does and how to integrate it with your stuff before actually jumping into it. Compare other products which are doing the same exact thing, see what your company can do and what your company needs, and what your requirements are, then make the decision after that. We have been moving away from Alert Logic for awhile now. We only use the AWS version.

Give it a try. It is very useful. The product is integrated with a product called BigPanda. It's an alerting platform, and it post alerts through SAP to BigPanda. The integration was good, but standard. We have only used the AWS version.
