"If you find it pricey, look twice, because the value is indeed there!"

What do you like best?

I like a lot how the tool is structured, is really intuitive browsing and finding what you need. If your mentality is hierarchical, you'll find events, incidents and alarms very easy to deal with. The Lucene search and filtering is also very powerful when you learn the syntax. Take the time to configure your own dashboards, in the short term you'll realize the value of those directly to your productivity at handling cases.

What do you dislike?

If you have troubled links within your network, the UI might not work fast enough or it might load slowly. The logs panel might not load the data if your network usage is too high, because it timeouts very shortly and then doesn't show the logs you need for the drilldown of the incident. Only when your link has more availability, then it works flawlessly. When showing a demo to a customer, that's a thing I have to take into consideration.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's best if you pay for the implementation services from LogRhythm or if your partner is already certified, then go for that. In order to see the full value of the product, you need to have the tool properly configured, to the smallest detail, that way you can see the product value for the price you paid.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have improved our response times to alarms at least 5-6 times, to the point we can consider ourselves an agile IT Security team at the company.

"Solid Out-of-Box capabilities. Headed in right direction but not there yet. "

What do you like best?

easy of setup, very good web console for analytic research. Budget friendly SIEM. Exceptional technical support.

What do you dislike?

very confusing and disorganized management console. Platform itself is not very flexible. It has decent Out-of-Box capabilities and can digest a lot of log sources but if you need to venture outside of original scope you have to engage professional services for any modifications which get expensive in a hurry. Custom reports are very limited.

Recommendations to others considering the product

solid, inexpensive SIEM for small and medium sized companies which have fairly homogenious environment. if you have complex environment with many diferent appliances, applications, OSes, etc. this may not be good choice due to very limited capability for customization. Reporting capabilites are still work in progress. Overall, not yet fully featured as Splunk but it is definitelly headed in the right direction.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Needed SIEM which could also be used for IT Infrastructure team. Comparable Splunk offering was out of our price range.

What Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Overly Complex Product Requires Huge PS Spend - Not Worth the Risk"

What do you like best?

Very little. We were misled about nearly every aspect of this product. The idea seemed great, but the execution was worthless. If you're installing this in a Windows office, it might work fine.

What do you dislike?

Nearly everything. It is an overly complex product that requires an insane amount of PS work to even come close to being usable. It runs on Windows. If you're installing it in a Linux environment, good luck. It provides almost no value. Getting any additional log types parsed requires hours of professional services work. Installation itself requires around 4 hours, and that's if THEY do it for you. Installing it yourself requires considerably more time. Support isn't helpful. It's a toss up as to whether you get a knowledgable PS person or whether the person you get has ever worked with the product before. No joke.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Stay away. If you have a basic use case, they might be able to successfully get you implemented, after LOTS of professional services spend. This product isn't worth the gamble. And it is a gamble.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were hoping to get a working SIEM that gave us insight into our AWS environment that runs primarily Linux. We were told it could easily ingest logs from our primary log source, only to be told they'd never done it before post sale. We have realized no benefits.

"Logrhythm- Overall a very good product"

What do you like best?

Good GUI through the web console for Analysts and gives you visibility on the network. Very customisable in order to fit with your environment

What do you dislike?

Very complicated to set up at first however this is required for the product, client console can be difficult to navigate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely look at logrhythm as a leader in the market, we chose LogRhythm over a number of different solutions including Alienvault.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Visibility on the network is a major bonus, without logrhythm it would be hard to notice a change in the volume and type of logs being gathered.

Always have the professional services from the providers it's very helpful.

First and foremost we are fulfilling compliance requirements, and we are monitoring network activity with it.

"Outdated SIEM with high overhead and Windows dependency"

What do you like best?

Compliance with necessary framework (i.e. HIPAA)

What do you dislike?

Deep requirements of manual configuration (little ability to automate), Windows dependency (high overhead and cost associated with license)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure there is no high infrastructure turnover in your systems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving the prescriptive need for a HIPAA recognized SIEM with Logrythm. The overhead of configuration in a cloud environment, coupled with the lack of automation, has made the overhead of the product too high

Probably the most complete pure-play SIEM we’ve seen with the added benefit of many next-gen features and superlative correlation and analytics.

What do you dislike?

Some minor hiccups in the documentation at the getting started point, but after that nothing that we noted.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good to go

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a heavy duty tool made for a demanding large environment. It is scalable and complete with the largest list of supported connectors we’ve yet seen. For all of that we make it our Recommended product.
