Network Engineer at Oracle Corporation
I learned that we didn't have such great coverage of our network in terms of watching and monitoring. There was a lot that we captured after it was set up, so it was definitely of assistance.

Lead Network Engineer at a retailer with 1,001-5,000 employees
The biggest lesson I learned is if it's not getting the flow data, it's not helping you. You have to just get your appointment inside the data. That's not really a tool, that's just if you don't send it, it can't see it.

Director Network Services at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees
The biggest lesson that I have learned is that all companies should have a solution like this. Firewalls and IPS systems, and some of the other security tools out there, do not do what this tool particularly does.

The biggest lesson for us is that we needed improvement, compared to what we had before. We ran around naked for the previous four years that I have been with the company. We made a good decision.

Director of Networking and Telecom at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Focus and finalize your thresholds so that the alerting is more AI. When we configured it initially, we really didn't have the fundamental knowledge of our network and the infrastructure. We were just too aggressive. We started getting noise and needed to go back in and simplify it.
