I haven’t had an issue in the year I have used the product.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I did, and I switched because of the poor level of customer service and the solution wasn’t meeting my expectations.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was pretty straightforward as right away, I was very familiar with the architecture.

What about the implementation team?

Their rep did the initial setup and I shadowed him.

If I calculated the man hours trying to figure out the alerts I would say a few thousand hours a month have been saved

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did evaluate about four other similar products –

  • Gardium
  • Application Security
  • Sentrigo
  • Veracode

It's a decent product.
