Number of followers on IT Central Station
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.

Although the solution has been improving continually in the time I have been using it, there could be areas of improvement. The one thing that springs to mind is easier API integration with ITSMs. We are evaluating a new ITSM and I would like... more»

What is most valuable?

Like they say, you don't know what you don't know. So, with CloudAI, it's just watching everything to see what you don't know, and it gives you a second opinion. An ever-changing landscape, in medical, we deal with a lot of doctors in all... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Not yet, but it's still working on it, it's still maturing. Right now, we were having some issues with some things, but as it continues, it will definitely.

What needs improvement?

Better dashboarding. At the moment, the dashboard only has an hour. It will give you one period of time, versus being an active dashboard like the rest of the dashboards. It doesn't give you an active tally of what's going on. It just gives... more»

What do you think of InsightIDR?

Primary Use Case Security incident Event management • Improvements to My Organization InsightIDR has allowed us to find potential security issues that we did not know existed, and get remediation quickly. • Valuable Features User behavioral analytics allows us to pinpoint abnormal or suspicious behavior among millions of events every day.  Log search allows us to dive deep into aggregated logs and query all event types at once. • Room for Improvement Threat Intelligence: It would be useful to import threat intelligence in YARA format along with known incorrect email addresses. • Use of Solution Less than one year. • Stability Issues During the entire duration of use, there have been no issues noted with stability. • Scalability Issues The log aggregation...

How has it helped my organization?

I am able to run automated actions based on the output of reports, leaving me extra time to focus on more pressing matters.

What needs improvement?

Personally, I feel it would greatly benefit from more supported log sources. Additionally, the ability to tune the collector for custom logs would greatly help.

What do you think of Palo Alto URL Filtering PAN-DB?

Primary Use Case We are not using it for the general population, just for a select group of users in an isolated subnet. We are using it primarily as a whitelist with little reliance on the PAN-DB. • Improvements to My Organization I cannot say that PAN-DB has provided any significant improvements, since we are using it primarily as a white list. • Valuable Features Being able to manage blacklists and whitelists easily is very useful, especially for internal access and limiting outbound access. • Room for Improvement The biggest improvement is the categories per site. For hosting sites like Blogspot, they host sites that should be in different categories, but get lumped together in general. There needs to be more granularity or multiple categorizations. • Use of...

What do you think of Forcepoint Stonesoft Next Generation Firewall?

Valuable Features: Integrated multi-layer filtering • Improvements to My Organization: McAfee NSP helps the organization by filtering most of the active inbound attacks that would otherwise compromise the users and servers. It's automated and fast response allow the organization to leave it as it is and apply automated updates to its signature. • Room for Improvement: Intel could ditch the Java-based GUI rendering and could use some serious revamp on the way they manage their GUI. A lot of bugs happen on their GUI but their system is working fine.
