Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Defender is easy to use. It has a nice console, and everything is all in one place.""It's a very scalable tool that can be used in a very small environment or in a very large environment. Everything can be managed from a simple dashboard and can be scaled up or down depending on the customer's environment.""The best feature is threat hunting. There are a lot of other features I like, such as the alert mechanism. The chain alert mechanism has a huge impact. It combines all the alerts into one incident and automatically correlates them with AI.""Within advanced threat hunting, the tables that have already been defined by Microsoft are helpful. In the advanced threat hunting tab, there were different tables, and one of the tables was related to device info, device alert, and device events. That was very helpful. Another feature that I liked but didn't have access to was deep analysis.""My clients like Defender's file integrity monitoring. They're monitoring Windows and Linux system files.""The timeline feature is excellent. I also like the phishing simulation. We have phishing campaigns to educate employees and warn them about these threats.""Microsoft 365 Defender's most valuable feature is the ability to control the shadow IP.""The incident threat response and its ability to facilitate effective remediation against threats are the standout features."

"LogRhythm UEBA’s best feature is the dashboard. It provides several graphs, charts, and event logs.""The solution's most valuable features are the graphical user interface and the reporting.""The most valuable features are file activity monitoring and registry activity monitoring.""The solution is useful for privilege accounts and super admin accounts. It is beneficial from a security perspective. The tool uses machine learning rather than threshold-based alerts. For instance, it can detect unusual user logins, such as a user logging in from a new browser or location.""It has a lot of features. It has file integration monitoring.""It is easy to monitor users and that is how the solution is adding value to our firm.""The tool's most valuable feature is server threat hunting.""Good capability pinpointing specific cyber incidents."

More LogRhythm UEBA Pros →

"Wazuh offers numerous features, such as the ability to define custom rules for detecting malicious activities and remembering behaviors.""Wazuh's logging features integrate seamlessly with AWS cloud-native services. There are also Wazuh agent configurations for different use cases, like vulnerability scanning, host-based intrusion detection, and file integrity monitoring.""The product’s interface is intuitive.""We use it to find any aberration in our endpoint devices. For example, if someone installs a game on their company laptop, Wazuh will detect it and inform us of the unauthorized software or unintended use of the devices provided by the company.""The most valuable feature of Wazuh is the ELK for doing an investigation.""I like that the solution is on top of the Kubernetes stack.""The configuration assessment and Pile integrity monitoring features are decent.""It is a stable solution."

More Wazuh Pros →

"The licensing is a nightmare and has room for improvement.""There are still some components, such as vulnerability management within the vendor product, where improved integration would be beneficial.""At times, there may be delays in the execution of certain actions and their effects.""Microsoft frequently changes the names of its products, sometimes even renaming entire portals or features.""The interface could be improved. For example, if you want to do a phishing simulation for your employees, it can take a while to figure out what to do. The interface is a bit messy and could be updated. It isn't too bad, but doing some things can be a long process.""At times, when we have an incident email and we click on the link for that incident, it opens a pop-up, but there is nothing. It has happened a couple of times.""There could be a way to proactively monitor unusual activity .""My client would like the solution to be more customizable without using code. You can only build on the default console, but we're not allowed to change it."

More Microsoft Defender XDR Cons →

"The product could be user-friendly for someone who doesn’t have any prior experience working with it.""It should have better mitigation with other solutions and be tightly integrated with other solutions. It has to be improved.""The search feature needs to be improved.""The cloud version is lacking and not up to par.""LogRhythm UEBA's data aggregation needs to be improved. Open-source users do not have much documentation available. Documentation is available only for enterprise users.""It would be helpful if there were more guidance provided for integrating with unsupported devices.""The UI could be improved a little bit.""The product should improve its dashboards. Splunk has neat dashboards. Additionally, we would like to enhance the use cases provided by LogRhythm as its use case library is not as extensive as other tools. Its machine-learning capabilities need to improve when compared to other solutions. It lacks risk quantification in a single, transparent view for individuals such as CSOs."

More LogRhythm UEBA Cons →

"Some features, like alerting, are complex with Wazuh.""Its configuration process is time-consuming.""The tool doesn't detect anomalies or new environments.""Scalability is a constraint in the on-prem version of Wazuh in terms of the volume of logs we can manage.""A lack of certain features creates limitations.""There's not much I like about Wazuh. Other products I've used were a lot more functional and user friendly. They came with reports and use cases out of the box. We need to configure Wazuh's alerts and monitoring capabilities manually. It'd be nice if we could select from templates and presets for use cases already built and coded.""The technical support can be improved. Wazuh has some bugs that need to be fixed. It would be good if we can have automation with respect to incidence responses.""A more structured approach, perhaps with modular UI components, to facilitate easier integration and navigation within the Wazuh platform for custom integrations would be beneficial."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The solutions price is fair for what they offer."
  • "The price could be better. Normally, the costs depend on the country you're located in for the license. When we were in the initial stage, we went with the E5 license they call premium standard. It cost us around $5.20 per month for four users."
  • "The price of the solution is high compared to others and we have lost some customers because of it."
  • "Microsoft is not competitive with the pricing of the solution. The competitors are able to offer lower discounts. The price of the solution is higher."
  • "We have a lot of problems in Latin America regarding the price of Microsoft 365 Defender, because the relationship between dollars and the money of the different countries, it's is a lot. Many customers that have small businesses say that they would like the solution but it is too expensive. However, large companies do not find the cost an issue."
  • "The most valuable licensing option is expensive, so pricing could be improved. Licensing options for this solution also need to be consolidated, because they frequently change."
  • "Microsoft should provide lower-level licensing options. They should do it in such a way that even an individual could purchase a license, and it should be entirely flexible."
  • "They have moved from a licensing model to pay-per-use... The question is: What happens if, for any reason, there's not enough budget to accept this model? That could be a great problem."

  • "It is quite a budget-friendly product."
  • "LogRhythm UEBA's pricing is affordable for small and medium businesses."

  • More LogRhythm UEBA Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Wazuh is open-source, so I think it's an option for a small organization that cannot go for enterprise-grade solutions like Splunk."
  • "There is not a license required for Wazuh."
  • "Wazuh is open-source, but you must consider the total cost of ownership. It may be free to acquire, but you spend a lot of time and effort supporting the product and getting it to a point where it's useful."

    Watch the Microsoft demo video here: Microsoft Defender XDR demo video.

    LogRhythm UEBA enables your security team to quickly and effectively detect, respond to, and neutralize both known and unknown threats. Providing evidence-based starting points for investigation, it employs a combination of scenario analytics techniques (e.g., statistical analysis, rate analysis, trend analysis, advanced correlation), and both supervised and unsupervised machine learning (ML).

    Wazuh is an enterprise-ready platform used for security monitoring. It is a free and open-source platform that is used for threat detection, incident response and compliance, and integrity monitoring. Wazuh is capable of protecting workloads across virtualized, on-premises, containerized, and cloud-based environments.

    It consists of an endpoint security agent and a management server. Additionally, Wazuh is fully integrated with the Elastic Stack, allowing users the ability to navigate through security alerts via a data visualization tool.

    • Wazuh’s agent can run on many different platforms, and is lightweight. It can successfully perform the tasks needed to detect threats in order to trigger responses automatically.
    • Wazuh manages the agents, can analyze agent data, and can scale horizontally.
    • Elastic Stack is where alerts are indexed and stored.

    Wazuh Capabilities

    Some of Wazuh’s most notable capabilities include:

    • Intrusion detection: Wazuh’s agents can detect hidden files, cloaked processes, or unregistered network listeners, as well as inconsistencies in system call responses. Wazuh’s server component uses a signature-based approach to intrusion detection, using its regular expression engine to analyze collected log data and look for indicators of compromise.

    • Log data analysis: Wazuh can read operating system and application logs, and securely forward them to a central manager for rule-based analysis and storage.

    • Integrity monitoring: File integrity monitoring can help identify changes in content, ownership, permissions, and attribute of files. Wazuh’s file integrity monitoring can be used in conjunction with threat intelligence.

    • Vulnerability detection: Wazuh agents can identify well-known vulnerable software so you can see where your weak spots are and take action before an attack can exploit them.

    • Configuration assessment: System and application configurations are monitored to make sure they are compliant with security policies. Periodic scans are used to detect applications that are known to be vulnerable, insecurely configured, or unpatched.
    • Incident response: Wazuh responds actively when active threats need to be addressed. It can perform countermeasures like blocking access to a system when a threat source is identified.

    • Regulatory compliance: Wazuh includes the security controls required to be compliant with industry regulations and standards.

    • Cloud security: Wazuh’s light-weight and multi-platform agents are commonly used to monitor cloud environments at the instance level. In addition, Wazuh helps monitor cloud infrastructure at an API level.

    • Security for containers: With Wazuh, you have increased security visibility into hosts and containers, allowing for easier detection of threats, anomalies, and vulnerabilities.
