ArcSight

Vulnerability scanning and threat intelligence software

About ArcSight

ArcSight is a vulnerability scanning software that helps businesses utilize machine learning technology to detect threats, handle investigations, create prioritized event lists, and more on a centralized platform. It enables staff members to extract entities from log files and observe events and behavior across users, IP addresses, servers, and machines.

ArcSight allows administrators to identify vulnerabilities and threats, such as privileges account misuse, terminated employee activity, data staging, email exfiltration, malicious tunneling, and mooching. The timeline view lets employees view entity alerts in chronological order, optimizing risk assessment operations. It also lets IT professionals examine the context of generated alerts with details, such as associated entities, model that triggered the alert.

ArcSight offers an API, which allows businesses to integrate the platform with several third-party solutions. It enables supervisors to schedule reports, monitor entity behavior, create custom org charts, manage regulatory compliance, and more.

Our company and our partners facing a lot incidents masked as a normal events. The SIEM helped us to be protected and to prioritize the events, based of the security risk. Automations of the responses is the other feauture that is a key differentiator.

Pros

Very powerful SIEM with plenty of predefined corellation scenarios. Could be integrate easily with almost everything.

Cons

For new users could be a little difficult to play with, but there are a lot of training materials and courses.

I have been using this product for about 3 years. We use ESM and Logger products. As a SIEM solution, we are able to host this product in our environment. We monitor the alarm and correlation rules, abnormal activities and cyber threats, which we write through the logs we receive from various security products and applications in our environment and monitor our incident response processes.

Pros

ArcSight supports functions such as processing, categorizing, normalizing, converting alarms and correlations and receiving reports on SIEM with very powerful search and filter operators. The product also supports making and running trend reports. It offers very powerful features for SIEM. It has features that provide great flexibility on logs. My favorite feature is the trend report. With this feature, real-time logs over the logs of the report to match the results of the report with a different database to get instant reports to access the report provide quick access.

Cons

Ticket management feature is one of the least favorite features. It does not have an interface that can be easily adapted and applied according to your environment. If you want to use this feature, you need professional support and software support.

Reasons for Switching to ArcSight

Especially because of the aforementioned features that I have mentioned above. We have chosen to buy this product because the product seamlessly supports superior features such as processing, categorizing, interpreting, analyzing, alarming and correlating logs, and successfully performing the desired actions on logs.

Response from OpenText

Thank you for the 4-star review, it is very much appreciated. We did note your comments about your `least favorite feature? and this certainly helps us build a better product. ArcSight has Case Management; that is different from Ticket Management. Ticket Management is more of a support function / ITSM issue; and while ArcSight does have connectors for ServiceNow, we know it's been problematic for some customers. As you point out, we typically recommend that Professional Services be engaged as each implementation has its idiosyncrasies. That said, improving this area is a KPI for us and we will be looking at options as we move to advance the ?Open? portion of our strategy in late 2019. We'd be happy to hear your thoughts / recommendations in more depth.

Arcsight - Good but complex SIEM solution

Reviewed on 2021/01/22

Arcsight ESM is a powerful but complex tool that needs deep knowledge of the product.

Arcsight ESM is a powerful but complex tool that needs deep knowledge of the product.

Pros

We are using Arcsight ESM and Logger for event logging and correlation. Events correlation is done at the ESM level and provides better visibility on organizations' security posture. Dashboards and reports can be generated on ESM and further, it facilitates case management so we can open a case on the tool itself. Arcsight was one of the most demanding tools at the time we implemented the tool. ESM's log supporting surface is very high and almost all the types of logs are supported which is one of the best features of the tool. Further logs can be routed through the smart connectors and through these connectors EPS count can be managed which is a good option when it comes to licensing. I like the option of Flex connectors which can be used for integrating non supporting devices or logs.

Cons

Arcsight Smart connector setup needs deep knowledge of the tool and configuration is a bit hectic task. Flex connector configuration and correlation configuration is another complex task that cannot be done without product knowledge. Further case management tools need more features with a simple view. First level support should have a technically savvy team. Most of the time the first level support team provides generic solutions and references to knowledge-based articles rather than studying the case.

We have a lot of security products and applications. We gather all logs from these products and we can easily manage our logs according to rules. Reporting module and dashboard are the best feature of this product.

Pros

We have been using Arcsight SIEM tool in Information Security department in our organization since 2013. We can integrated this product with all other security management products such as Firewall, IPS, Antivirus, Web Filtering etc. also in house softwares easily. We can gather all logs from these products and create rules and manage logs according to rules. Dashboard and alarm mechanism are done well.

Cons

Sometimes we have some problems with search mechanism, it needs some improvements. Because of our big organization and large products which gather logs sometimes we have problems with troubleshooting issues that is little bit hard for us.

Reasons for Switching to ArcSight

This product enables the detection and prevention of attacks by establishing connections between the logs (correlation). Normalization and correlation features are the best of this product.

The ArcSight product is seen as one of the leaders and leaders in the Safety Information and Event Management category, according to Gartner's Magic Quadrant report.

ArcSight's approach is to create a single point of communication for observation and control. Gathers all appropriate event data and puts it into a standard form. It collects at a central location for analysis. As a result, the company allows you to easily monitor and, if necessary, take measures. This increases your compliance with your legal requirements and business continuity.

Pros

The most important feature of Arcsight is that it is the only point of communication for observation and control. collects all appropriate data and puts it into a standard form. these data are stored on a hard disk and are expected to be analyzed. With arcsight, it is monitored with the help of side applications and with the help of monitoring tool (see arcsight esm).

Cons

The ESM platform is Java. This causes slowness and excessive welding in intensive processes.
