If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering ArcSight, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

In summary, this solution requires a dedicated person that has specific competency in this product. It is not a plug and play product that allows you to simply focus on the analytics. It is not easy for an amateur. The suitability of this solution depends on the complexity of the system. If the organization is very large, for example nationwide, then a log-based approach such as this one will be very difficult to implement. Obviously, if the device does not generate a log then it is not supported by this solution. Our client has successfully deployed it for use with several devices, including firewalls and IPS, but they have no support for some in-house applications. I would rate this solution a five out of ten.

This is a really good solution and I would recommend it. If you know how to work it, and how to configure it properly, then it can give you lots and lots of information. On the other hand, it provides so much detail that people can miss things. If the interface and reports were minimized and consolidated then it would be better. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

I would rate it an eight out of ten. Not a ten because of the drag and drop feature I'd like for them to include and because I think they should include more enterprise security use cases.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten. To make it a ten they should develop a design for the security operations. It's a SIEM solution and I can see that it has some segregation of the consoles and duties for the different parties when we want to monitor different components like the security operations center.
