Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The initial setup is pretty straightforward.""The solution was consistently available, and I cannot recall any instances where it was down.""The most valuable aspect of Alert Logic is its technology platform. They have SOCs in the US and Europe, giving them global visibility of the threat landscape. They detect and respond to threats in minutes. Their biggest value is human expertise. You're being attacked by a human, and you cannot respond to it unless you have a human on the other side. They have the human and technological resources to respond.""We receive infrastructure security warnings from it. So, we know what is going on and what needs to be addressed.""It improves our security. Before, we didn't have anything scanning our containers. We had software scanning all the physical servers, but we had nothing to scan our containers. With Alert Logic, we can do that.""It has the ability to install agents. It is pretty straightforward. You can automate the process pretty easily.""While I still have on-premises appliances, I can remotely monitor everything from the cloud, and Alert Logic's ease-of-access features have helped me streamline my workflow and reduce implementation time.""The installation and configuration were slick."

"The solution helps identify threats and vulnerabilities.""One valuable feature is the Microsoft Security Scorecard.""The product's stability is very high...The scalability of the product is amazing.""The product’s most valuable features are compliance, recommendations, and inventories.""The solution is up-to-date and helps prevent zero-day attacks."

Cons
"The product needs to mature. We don't want to be bombarded with unnecessary issues and have the real ones slip through.""As a user involved with the user interface, I believe there is a need to continue improving it based on feedback from our customers.""Alert Logic needs to expand its SOCs to serve more markets, such as the Middle East and Asia. There should be infrastructure that covers more time zones. The company should also develop an EDR that is natively integrated into their solution. Currently, a client must buy another EDR solution like CrowdStrike or Sophos. I think Alert Logic is developing this. Built-in email security could also be developed and integrated.""They have ideas and email you whatever they find, but they don't have a dedicated security team who will work on an attack or a specific security instance.""Its menu is not very intuitive. I would like to see the user menu expanded a bit. The user menu is very layered, and because of the layers, you have to go down a path that is not very intuitive.""This product needs to mature more. While it is a good product, there are some areas where it needs work.""I would like to see it do initial scans and start capturing data, which it will truly analyze, not just be a reporting system saying, "Here is an email. Here is an email. Here is an email."""Could be more of an endpoint protector."

"The setup phase of the product is not that easy and needs a person to have a certain level of expertise.""It is challenging to extract and customize reports from the system.""Integration can be improved.""The technical support takes too much time to resolve tickets.""The general support could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Our ROI would probably be zero. We don't even use it. It sits in there. We get emails and just delete them. Around the world, we don't even use it."
  • "Alert Logic has better competitive pricing than some of its competitors."
  • "Almost any product that is on the AWS Marketplace is super easy to subscribe to."
  • "Its pricing is very reasonable considering what you get for what you pay. There is quite a good value there. Its licensing is also very logical. They've got the licensing price points at a reasonable level. It is on a monthly license but a yearly contract. There are no additional costs to the standard licensing fees."
  • "Price of the solution was very reasonable considering the size of our organization at the time, and so it worked out perfectly."
  • More Alert Logic Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The product’s pricing is medium."
  • "The licensing model follows a per-user per-month structure."
  • "I rate the product's price a three on a scale of one to ten, where one is a low price, and ten is a high price."
  • "The tool is a bit costly."
