"The 24/7 support is the most valuable feature. They have been able to answer support questions pretty quickly.""The analytics would have to be our most valuable feature.""On the Varonis side, technical support is phenomenal. Their ability to explain is very good, and they seem to be very knowledgeable. When I get an alert that doesn't quite make sense, they dive in there and kind of take me through it. That's very useful and very good. There are some false alerts, but it is better to have a false alert than no alert at all."

"[There is] complexity in maintaining it and managing it. It's not easy to use. It requires a lot of training.""I would like to see orchestration.""It's a difficult product to navigate, it's complex.""There is a GUI, but it is not complete and lacks functionality that needs to be performed using the console.""I would like to see integration with automation products, such as Phantom Automation.""The interactive dashboard is complicated and you need to have training in order to use it, so I think that it could be made easier to use.""The GUI interface is not always intuitive and easy for non-technical users to work with.""The reporting and the way it is worded needs to be improved in future releases. The dashboards are quite poorly designed."

"I would like it to have cloud integration.""I'd like to see automatic updates for this solution. Currently, it's a manual process to update all the keywords""We have Microsoft Office 365. I just saw an article today which says that they're actually getting integrated with Microsoft Office 365, which would be a useful feature. For user-based reports, log on activity, and stuff like that, it doesn't seem to really be present like Log360. That could just be my inexperience with it. I've been dealing with it for only about two and a half months."
