What is most valuable?

Scalability is the best feature.

How has it helped my organization?

It provides real time security event analytics.

What needs improvement?

Take a look at other vendors like LogRhythm. They are light years ahead of where this product is.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this solution for seven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We did have issues with stability. Java is not stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We did not have scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Support is good, but only for backend support. Both Level-1 and Level-2 support teams are terrible.

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

We did not have a previous solution.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was complex.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's probably not a product that I would recommend to anyone.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options.

What other advice do I have?

The amount of time spent implementing this solution, tweaking it to suit our needs, and then maintaining it, ended up being the same as building one from scratch, using something like ELK.
