We performed a comparison between Sumo Logic Security and USM Anywhere based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Log Management solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The log analysis is excellent; it can predict what can or will happen regarding use patterns and vulnerabilities."
"The product can integrate with any device."
"The log query feature has been the most valuable because it's very good. You can put your data on the cloud and run queues from Sentinel. It will do it all very fast. I love that I don't have to upload it to an Excel file and then manually look for a piece of information. Sentinel is much faster and is good for big databases."
"The native integration of the Microsoft security solution has been essential because it helps reduce some false positives, especially with some of the impossible travel rules that may be configured in Microsoft 365. For some organizations, that might be benign because they're using VPNs, etc."
"Microsoft Sentinel comes preloaded with templates for teaching and analytics rules."
"We are able to deploy within half an hour and we only require one person to complete the implementation."
"Native integration with Microsoft security products or other Microsoft software is also crucial. For example, we can integrate Sentinel with Office 365 with one click. Other integrations aren't as easy. Sometimes, we have to do it manually."
"The connectivity and analytics are great."
"We can integrate threat intelligence solutions into the product."
"Technical support is always great."
"The tool has key features like operability. It will alert the admins whenever a device is onboarded."
"The features I found valuable with the Sumo Logic Security solution are the search option and the ability to customize the search for the information in the logs."
"The most valuable features of Sumo Logic Security are the rules, use cases, and ease of use. Additionally, the integration is straightforward and good GUI."
"Having everything in a central place has been helpful."
"AlienVault's reporting is good. I like that vulnerability assessment is part of the solution, and the UI is intuitive. Also, the overhead is low, which is to say we don't need a dedicated SOC team to manage and analyze things constantly. We're a small company that doesn't have those resources."
"AT&T AlienVault USM is good for ELK Stack, the user experience is great because of its architecture. The ELK has a great performance and it has very good speed in the search and Kibana. Additionally, the visuals and dashboards and very nice and customizable."
"The feature that I liked the most is that they have a vulnerability assessment package that comes along with the SIEM solution. So, whenever I find any threat or alert for any of the devices or servers, I could immediately initiate a vulnerability assessment scan on that machine. That is one of a kind. The price at which AlienVault operates is also valuable."
"Easy to use, scalable, stable, and very intuitive platform that provides protection against security threats."
"The most valuable features of AT&T AlienVault USM are the ease of management and knowledge of what is on the network of my customers. It's easy to understand the problems, and management our alarms and events."
"The most valuable feature in AT&T AlienVault USM is the reporting."
"The vulnerability manager and the file integration are very good."
"Microsoft Sentinel is relatively expensive, and its cost should be improved."
"The performance could be improved. If I create 15 to 20 lines for a single-use case in KQL, sometimes it takes more time to execute. If I create use cases within a certain timeline, the result will show in .01 seconds. A complex query takes more time to get results."
"If their UI was a bit more streamlined and easy to find when I need it, then that would be a great improvement."
"If you're looking to use canned queries, the interface could be a little more straightforward. It's not immediately intuitive regarding how you use it. You have to take a canned query and paste it into an operational box and then you hit a button... They could improve the ease of deploying these queries."
"The product can be improved by reducing the cost to use AI machine learning."
"We do see continuous improvement all the time, however, I haven't got a specific feature that is lacking or not well designed."
"Currently, the watchlist feature is being utilized, and although there have been improvements, it is still not fully optimized."
"For certain vendors, some of the data that Microsoft Sentinel captures is redacted due to privacy reasons."
"The solution should improve its UI."
"The API integration in Sumo Logic Security could improve. There are delayed connections or they stop and then automatically start. Having a seamless log collection would be beneficial."
"From the network segmentation side, there is some discrepancy in log onboarding. The tool needs to improve direct API integrations, login integration, native login integration, etc."
"In my opinion, this solution has a steep learning curve and requires practice if users to be able to use this tool very efficiently."
"The integration with multiple sources could be better."
"Their threat intelligence platform needs to be broadened. They should integrate it with more threat intelligence platforms. For the threat feed that they get from open intelligence, I would like them to add a few premium threat intelligence platforms. They can provide a bundle in which AlienVault has the threat intelligence background of other premium products."
"USM Anywhere relies a lot on the community putting the data in. Often, you'll right-click on the attack, but nothing will be found. That's a weakness of it."
"The GUI needs to improve because it's not user-friendly."
"I think plugin management should be self-service on AlienVault USM. The other product is self-service but on the USM side. You have to submit a ticket then AT&T creates and updates the plugins."
"Sometimes the log is unclear, and the report is a bit ambiguous."
"Adding a parsing interface for the customers would make AT&T AlienVault USM better."
"AlienVault cannot automatically respond to threats like other SIEM solutions, such as Sentinel and LogRhythm. Most of our clients are far away, so it's often challenging to handle alerts when they come up on our dashboard."
"I've been told that AlienVault doesn't have a full version of NES running in there, but I'm not sure if that's accurate or if my engineer made it that way. I'm not sure he was completely honest either because we had NES in the environment before. Those tools could be improved because AlienVault is a SIEM, and it added all these other features."
