The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is most valuable?

The ability to scan our AWS accounts to understand what is not in alignment with our best practices is huge for us. Evident.io currently only queries AWS accounts for certain configuration values that it regards as security issues. For... more»

How has it helped my organization?

This enables us to clean up our existing AWS accounts and update our processes for new accounts. This improves our overall security process to an acceptable level. We are building out new AWS accounts which are secured from the beginning... more»

What needs improvement?

This product needs to focus on real-time analysis. Currently, it only focuses on configuration settings. Giving us the ability to analyze CloudTrail results would enable us to take security to the next level. If someone made an error and... more»

What is most valuable?

Generally, just the security and best practice advice we get through this service.

How has it helped my organization?

I know when we first got it, it covered all aspects of our AWS account. There was some infrastructure that someone else on my team built out. In doing so, it left something open to the public that normally wouldn't have been caught. But we... more»

What needs improvement?

I don't really have any areas in which they can improve. Throughout our use of it, there have been things here and there. I've always opened a support ticket and everything's been taken care of within a couple of weeks. There are no open... more»

What is most valuable?

Our accountants use it from the standpoint of doing their audits. In their audits and filling out certain documentations that they need, it helps them in doing their audits and makes them much faster in that process. Each auditor has their... more»

How has it helped my organization?

You are able to work simultaneously on one file, as an individual. Each auditor came here to do their part with respect to their particular audit. They then put the information into the one file, which allows them to work independently. From... more»

What needs improvement?

We are going through a process now in which even though it is a benefit in which you can have multiple people accessing this file, if you have too many people accessing it, the performance of the file goes down tremendously, and it ends up... more»

IT Security at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
Feb 07 2017

What is most valuable?

The ability to audit each AWS account at a high level so we can see critical vulnerabilities that might otherwise be overlooked. The granular approach helps me to drill down and deal with each alert properly and individually.

How has it helped my organization?

It has helped greatly in the creation of new accounts as a “checklist” of sorts, as well as helping us track user activity to make sure that all changes fall within scope of our security policies.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see integration of PCI audits into the dashboard. That would help greatly in passing our PCI audits for AWS in an easy-to-view method. I would also like the ability to integrate Evident with AWS in such a way that we could... more»

Sr. Manager Information Security at a software R&D company with 1,001-5,000 employees
May 07 2017

What is most valuable?

I like being able to see the alerts that are going on and being able to remediate them. I like the dashboards and the recording is good. They're coming out with newer features and they have a feature request thing.

How has it helped my organization?

It allows me to do is see what's happening in our AWS account. I have several, so this is a nice, single pane, point of view for me whenever I have to make sure that configurations are as secure as possible.

What needs improvement?

The reporting may be a little bit better. I need to be able to generate an executive level report for specific alerts. That's really my only ask right now.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ever-evolving security templates. My team does not have time to keep up with this.

How has it helped my organization?

It has allowed our credit union to achieve the Evolving status on the FFIEC Cybersecurity Maturity model. Vibrant has worked for the last three years to adopt a cloud-first strategy. By doing so, we have become more agile and cost competitive... more»

What needs improvement?

Standard reporting for various compliance items for the FI industry would be great.
