About Perch Security

Perch Security is a threat detection and response management software designed to help enterprises create, launch, and manage cybersecurity programs. The platform enables organizations to identify potential threats and malicious activities across networks and connected devices via a unified portal.

Perch Security includes a threat hunting functionality, which allows analysts to view and investigate alerts, network traffic, logs, and threat details using drill-down capabilities. The log ingestion feature sends real-time alerts for critical events, enabling users to analyze and store details related to instances or system errors in a centralized repository for future reference and compliance requirement. Administrators can also utilize the built-in dashboard to define and handle custom threat indicators and maintain an internal intelligence database.

Perch Security lets system managers gain insights into PCI DSS and HIPAA compliance, networking, Windows logs, assets, and other metrics. It also supports integration with various third-party applications such as AWS Cloudtrail, Bitdefender, Cisco, ConnectWise, Fortinet, Freshdesk, G Suite, Microsoft 365, and more.

A really great team, easy to get a hold of and really a big part of helping us stop the bad guys in our customers. We have multiple success stories from this product where a significant crisis was stopped before it became a crisis. Also, it is very reasonably priced. This has made it easier for us to approach even our smaller customer. Lastly, we use the product to help us protect and detect our own network.

Pros

The product is comprehensive. It touches the network, the individual hosts and cloud based resources. It all aggregates into a very flexible and feature rich SIEM or SIEM like tool that helps us really figure out what is going on.

Cons

When we first engaged with Perch they had not yet completed some key integrations. Those have been completed now. I can't really think of a current limitation that we wish were better. We are very happy with the product.

Perch is very good at selling its product but it doesn't deliver on its promise. It's not a true log mangaement or SIEM. Their SOC is more of a Support than anything else. They are too junior

Pros

pricing is very attractive at first but then it adds up very quickly. It doesn't scale very well.

Cons

Log retention is a problem. We failed an audit because didn't provide the raw logs for the duration that we needed it. Perch is a simple basic alerting that sometimes fails to alert.

The people at Perch from the top to the bottom are great. If you run into issues, have questions, or just need some advice, they are there for you. Also, their SOC is based in Houston on USA soil which is important to many when you have someone watching your back from a cyber perspective.

Pros

The Perch solution has a very community-esque feel. Users of Perch love it and are not afraid to support one another, share tips, tricks, customizations, etc. This collaboration and feedback is also present within Perch and the improvements that are made to the product it reflect the users' requests and needs.

Cons

This is a product where the more one puts into it, the one gets out of it. It is no magic system out of the box per se. This is not really Perch's fault, but to the layperson, one could thing that.

Reasons for Switching to Perch Security

The Perch experience is second-to-none. You can tell they are passionate about their product and it is just not a re-packaging of existing open-source tools.

I have used and sold Splunk before and Splunk is very intuitive to use from the end user perspective. Perch requires more knowledge of query languages to dig some of the information out that I want to see. On the administrative side of things Perch is far easier to implement than Splunk and does not require a dedicated engineering staff to maintain.

Pros

Easy of implementation and the setup of the appliances at each location is great. The web portal reduces our overhead and maintenance cost.

Cons

Query of information via Perchbana needs to be segmented by client sites.

Alternatives Considered

Splunk Enterprise

Reasons for Switching to Perch Security

Cost of the product was a major factor, but the implementation and maintenance of the product was also high on the list. Splunk on our list, but the cost to implement and maintain the solution was much greater.
