NNT Log Tracker Enterprise Review

Good file integrity monitoring and change tracking tools but the knowledge base needs to be available online


What is our primary use case?

We use this solution primarily for real-time log analytics.

We also use the NNT Log Tracker and Change Tracker for the FIM functionality.

What is most valuable?

The FIM features in the Change Tracker and the Log Tracker are the most valuable. With that, we analyze the log and differentiate between the planned and unplanned changes, rather than just generating the log of the changes. We use the actual outcome.

What needs improvement?

For the NNT Log Tracker and Change Tracker, they have to make their knowledge base available online because there is very little information available on the internet.

I would like to see the integration of AI technology, so rather than manually monitoring the logs, the tool will understand it and take care of it.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using ManageEngine EventLog Analyzer for more than three years. We have now moved on from ManageEngine to the NNT Log Tracker solution. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable product. We have not seen any bugs, glitches, or crashes.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

When we were using ManageEngine we were limited because it is dependent on the AWS cloud. With the NNT product, there is no dependence on the AWS cloud so we can extend it as much as possible. Ultimately, the scalability depends on the performance of the platform.

There are 17 people in the team who use this solution and they are primarily security analysts.

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

We are still using NNT after switching from ManageEngine and we have not implemented other solutions beyond the evaluation stage.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was good and very simple to do. We installed it on the Windows Server and as soon as it was set up, it started fetching data.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented this solution over two or three years. Initially, we were not familiar with it so we had assistance from the OEM Professional Services. During the second round, my onsite team managed the implementation with some guidance from technical support.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated solutions by SolarWinds in addition to ManageEngine and NNT.

What other advice do I have?

We are using the second most recent version of this solution.

I would recommend using NNT over ManageEngine. The Change Tracker tool is very good. It will reduce your overall workload. The FIM tool allows you to understand the activities and the NNT tool takes care of automatically giving you the actual and planned changes.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
