Pros

Support for collecting Logs from different devices is amazing. Storage capacity is excellent, logs can be easily stored for years.
Also, the excellent support from OEM makes it a win-win proposition.
IBM QRadar is very good solution to assure integrity of logs.

Pros

Not enoughreviews yet

Cons

Very slow product built on older technology. Collecting logs from Windows is very painful and archaic.
This is not the case where you can point-and-click a few things and have a system that alerts you properly when attacks are taking place.
So, the correlation was difficult with IBM QRadar.

AlienVault OSSIM

An affordable and powerful open-source security solution

Reviewed a year ago

We have a limited security budget so AlienVault OSSIM works for us well.

Pros

Our business is a medium-sized one with restricted security resources so I like that AlienVault OSSIM is free to download and use.

Cons

Setup and configuration was a challenge for us because we were not familiar with it so we had to get an expert to help us and there is limited support options for the software.

Pros

Easy to access is what makes the software worth trying. It can be accessed by web, any devices, workstations and so on. It makes easy to identify issues like network vulnerabilities, attacks and user behaviors.

Cons

Free version doesn't seems to have all the capabilities and has limitations with the access .

AlienVault OSSIM

lightweight SIEM tool for complete security operations

Reviewed 3 years ago

OSSIM platform cover-up security operations for SMB customers with all the features available in leading SIEM solutions. It had as many correlation rules that were most sufficient to correlate with leading vendors to make analyst jobs easy. simple deployment and user-friendly architecture make complex things too easy with OSSIM except the fact that build with freeware tools and depends patches on it.

Pros

OSSIM SIEM platform is very unique compared to other leading SIEM platforms. As part of security operations adding assets, correlation rules on logs, and performing Vulnerability Assessments, etc.. are simple and more effective because of their simple architecture it was easy to work around and create workflows.

Cons

OSSIM lacks when it comes to normalizing raw logs into SIEM events. It lacks in new emerging device logs as there needs to be a plugin. It is built on most of the freeware tools so it was always a challenge for enterprise customers.
