What do you like best?

LogRhythm is a cross-stage log the board program that gives a large number of capacities to oversee review documents and IT security the executives forms. It's very much made to meet IT industry patterns went for expanded endeavor productivity, security and legislative/industry consistence guidelines.

What do you dislike?

The log panel may not download information if your network utilization is too expansive in light of the fact that it is too quick to even consider ending and afterward does not show the logs required to detail the occurrence.

"Used for compliance activities"

What do you like best?

Is always hard to start with a new platform, specially if it’s as complex as LogRhytm, but this one comes with a great documentation that has answered many of our questions. The training offered by LogRhytm is exceptional too, showing every little aspect of the software. When there’s something we can't solve, we know we can always call the customer support and expect it to be arranged. They provide a great service and each customer support member we have spoken to knows the product very well. What’s great about LogRhythm is that we're able to correlate different events, even across multiple systems where we capture logs.

What do you dislike?

It requires some considerable time and effort to learn how to use it properly. You could spend some months training in order to get the best out of it. When it comes to upgrades, switching your current version to the newest one tends to be a messy process. Also, I think pricing of LogRhythm is high, hard to afford for most companies.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

LogRhythm is the perfect tool for capturing logs, specially if you need to audit requirements for system access, to alert and report on user activity or to troubleshoot issues. Honestly, I can’t think of any computing environment where LogRhytm wouldn’t be appropriated. Of course, you must always consider it’s an expensive tool, so I think it’s mostly suited for medium or big companies.

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

LogRhythm was implemented 2 years ago in our company. Currently, it’s being used in our production environment for compliance purposes, reporting for audits and other related activities. LogRhythm adds logs from the machines in each one of our private environments. This give us a general view of any specific compliance environment.

"Support for achieving PCI compliance and collecting logs "

What do you like best?

LogRhythm is a software in charge of such a big responsibility within the company, and does the work just great. Not only that, but after you know the basics of LogRhythm, it becomes so easy to manage that you can set up any kind of alerts in a matter of seconds. The Performance trending and the HIPAA and Compliance are two of the most useful features included in the software. Also, the road map for LogRhythm is detailed and extensive.

What do you dislike?

The alerts are great, but it’s not the same story when it comes to reporting. Reports are based on Crystal Reports, so it requires a template in order to build a report. The problem is this template can’t be edited once it was created and saved. It’s a very tedious process having to create a template after another, again and again.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

LogRhythm is great for mid-size and even large organizations. I think it would fit perfectly for companies with a widely dispersed set of endpoints. If you encounter any situations with multi-tired SOC, LogRhythm can help to ensure the system is always up-to-date, without requiring internal resources.

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

LogRhythm is a very important tool in our company! We use it as a support for achieving PCI compliance and collecting logs from various systems, so we can monitor the landscape and critical infrastructure systems, preventing any sort of failure before it happens. We can set up alerts for any type of anomalies that we set up, such as the use of privileged accounts within the environment.

"LogRhytm: a great SIEM for cloud environment"

What do you like best?

With LogRhythm you’re able to create alerts before certain events take place. For events as simple as machine reboots to others as complex as data breakout. These events can be correlated from various systems, in order to provide a general view of the activity. The dashboards are very easy to use and configure. By using the Live Data feature, you can highlight the data of relevance on the dashboards. In comparison with other SIEMs, LogRhythm allows for statistical building blocks containing powerful anomaly detection capabilities in a simple process.

What do you dislike?

LogRhythm is a complex software, so training will be hard and take time, even when using the LogRhythm Thrive Partner Portal. You have to take exams regularly and I think these are way too hard for new users. I think this should improve by taking the education in a simpler way. Also, I think it would be nice to have access to the LogRhythm code base, in order to implement lists and turn them into hash tables. This will avoid the excessive cost associated with referencing lists in rules. Another thing is that LogRhythm lacks of the reporting feature on the web console.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

LogRhythm is a great tool for medium and large sized companies. The maximum benefits will be obtained in a corporation with distributed and centralized architectures.

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

LogRhytm is managed mainly by the IT department, specifically by the Technical Services Team. We use it as a SIEM for cloud environment, helping with the log management of every cloud devices from the company. Also, LogRhythm helps in cases of attacks, for testing purposes or for the production environment. Another use for this solution is as a demo presentation for costumer in need to make certain configuration on their environments.

"A solution to detect threats in case of breakout of privacy"

What do you like best?

LogRhythm shows hastily the storage of logs, useful information for security purposes. When it comes to analyzing, the reports are really easy to create, configure and use when knowing the queries needed. In comparison with other SIEM, I consider LogRhytm to be the best of them because it makes the job quicker. My favorite feature is the Event Classifications, as I can set it with the confidence that it will never excess the limit of partial matches or make correlations of unwanted events

What do you dislike?

There are some rumors that LogRhythm could have a web application for the administration, but it has never come. Having a web app would be a better way to access that the actual one. When it comes to the license, I think the plans should be me more flexible. Maybe adding a free plan for testing for a period of time could make it better. Although reports are make really fast, it’s not completely intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If your company have specific compliance requirements or you have critical environments you need to protect with defined rules whenever an alarms triggers, then I would recommend you to purchase a SIEM, and the best in the market right now is LogRhythm. Also, be sure you count with the right budget for purchasing LogRhythm, as it requires some serious investment.

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

LogRhythm is the solution used by my company to analyze reports, rules and dashboards and to detect threats in case of breakout of privacy for our customers. On the other hand, our customers access to their network and security devices by using LogRhythm as well. I consider this to be a great platform for analyzing the correlation across network and time for security purposes.

"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 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.

""Logrhythm-Overall a decent item""

What do you like best?

LogRhythm is a cross-arrange log the board program that gives countless to direct audit archives and IT security the officials shapes. It's especially made to meet IT industry designs went for extended undertaking efficiency, security and administrative/industry consistence rules.

What do you dislike?

The log board may not download data if your system use is excessively broad in light of the way that it rushes to much think about closure and a while later does not demonstrate the logs required to detail the event.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Risk lifecycle the board arrangement that goes with customer and component lead examination, log the executives, security computerization and course of action, endpoint checking, and SIEM handiness.

With LogRhythm, our group will uncover dangers faster and put important vitality in work that is fundamental. regardless, managing different instruments and manual endeavors is holding them down. Verifying your business will get a ton less complex.

""LogRhythm Friend of Analysis""

What do you like best?

What I like best about LR is their help and attempting staff. The people group is exceptionally dynamic and accommodating for new individuals with Intelligent feeds that assistance stay up with the latest as security experts

What do you dislike?

The logs board probably won't stack the information if your system utilization is excessively high, since it timeouts in all respects in a matter of seconds and after that doesn't demonstrate the logs you requirement for the countdown of the occurrence. Just when your connection has greater accessibility, at that point it works perfectly. Some amazingly essential alerts and measurements are not empowered of course.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

While considering a SIEM guarantee you are focused on the item by depending on expert administrations from the suppliers it's extremely useful.

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

Better perspectives into our business procedures and work processes by checking our business gets a ton less perplexing.

"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 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.

"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 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 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.

"Solid out-of-the-box experience, but there is plenty to be desired."

What do you like best?

Easy to setup, the UI is simple to understand and most analytics are in logical locations. Excellent technical support Budget friendly, but there is plenty to grow. For their cloud offerings, there is a bit of growth.

What do you dislike?

Not quite suitable for a cloud environment with out more work. THe management console is a bit confusing to use. Some extremely basic alarms and metrics are not enabled by default.

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

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

"Works great but the GUI is very busy"

What do you like best?

The ability to watch events across multiple hosts, in one interface, at once is like magic.

What do you dislike?

There is so much in the GUI that it gets distracting at times, and requires a large display. Also, we have had trouble when a server is upgraded so that the hostname gets passed to a new system, but the old one can't be deleted.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get the system administrators involved early so they can help filter the traffic down to just meaningful events, and allow multiple people to administer the system so that one person isn't a bottleneck for updates/corrections to host records. Also, get big displays for frequent users.

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

Collecting, sorting, and reporting on system log events.

"Good SIEM, Very interesting product."

What do you like best?

The ability to customize our dashboards to visualize what we really need, the dashboard that come out of the box are really sueful as well

What do you dislike?

The administration console is not on the web, is on the backend, and you have to conect using RDP to customize the solution.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

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

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

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 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
