Wazuh's licensing is based on the cloud. For instance, if you need to analyze a chunk of data, the approximate monthly price would be around $23 to $24. Compared to its competitors like ELK Stack and other similar products, Wazuh offers a reasonable price point, with many of its competitors priced higher.

There's no licensing fee because we're using the open-source version.

We're using the open-source version, and their licensing is fairly straightforward. We do not have to worry about any other monitoring matters since we are using the pre-version.

We paid a lump sum as managed services, so the operator charges an amount for a year using a complete compliance system. The complete compliance system is just one component, so we are not being charged separately for the suite. This means we have the luxury of using it as a combo deal.

Wazuh is an open-source solution, so the only expenses are Elasticsearch and log storage costs. Log storage costs no more than $20,000 to $30,000 annually. It's around $3,000 a month. It's all money in the bank. We don't have to spend anything except for resources.

Wazuh has a community edition, and I was using that. It's free and open source.

Wazuh is open-source, therefore it is free. You can purchase support for $1,000 a year.

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.

Wazuh is open-source, so I think it's an option for a small organization that cannot go for enterprise-grade solutions like Splunk.

Hi peers,  I work at a medium-sized financial services firm. I am currently researching SIEM solutions and would like to understand the difference between SIEM and Next-Gen SIEM solutions. In addition, I would like to know what are the differences between Gurucul and Wazuh. Thank you for your help.

"SIEM" and "Next-Gen SIEM" are often used in marketing and may not have a clear definition. Each vendor may have their own interpretation of these terms. The main difference between SIEM and Next-Gen SIEM (often called XDR) is the responsibility for creating security detections. Next-Gen solutions typically offer more pre-built detections and require less maintenance compared to traditional SIEMs, which primarily focus on collecting log data.   Comparing Gurucul and Wazuh, some key differences between the two include: Wazuh is open-source, while Gurucul's SIEM solution is proprietary. Wazuh focuses on providing detailed visibility and control over an organization's endpoint security, whereas Gurucul's SIEM solution provides a broader range of security features such as threat intelligence, user behavior analytics, and incident response.

SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) is a security management system that uses software to collect, store, and analyze security-related data from various sources. It provides a centralized view of the security posture of an organization by correlating events from different sources, such as network devices, servers, and applications. Next-gen SIEM solutions, also known as "modern" or "advanced" SIEMs, build on the basic functionality of traditional SIEMs by adding new capabilities such as: - Machine learning and artificial intelligence to improve threat detection and reduce false positives - Cloud-based deployment for greater scalability and flexibility - Integration with other security tools such as endpoint protection and vulnerability management - Automated incident response and threat hunting - Greater visibility into modern technologies such as cloud environments and IoT devices. In summary, Next-gen SIEMs offer more advanced analytics, automation, and improved scalability, to help with detecting and responding to cyber threats in real time. Wazuh is an open-source security platform that provides an integrated solution for threat detection, incident response, and compliance. It is built on top of Elastic Stack and provides an agent-based architecture for data collection and centralized management. Wazuh focuses on providing endpoint security by monitoring and alerting system activity, file integrity, and vulnerabilities. Gurucul, on the other hand, is a security analytics platform that uses machine learning and behavioral analytics to detect and respond to cyber threats in real time. It also provides a centralized view of security-related data and can integrate with a variety of security tools. Gurucul focuses on providing user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) and fraud detection, it can identify anomalies and suspicious activities in an organization's network, applications, and user behavior. In summary, Wazuh is an open source endpoint security platform, while Gurucul is a security analytics platform that uses machine learning and behavioral analytics to detect and respond to cyber threats in real time.
