We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The user interface is really modern. As an end-user, there are a lot of possibilities to tailor the platform to your needs, and that can be done without needing much support from Devo. It's really flexible and modular. The UI is very clean.One of the biggest features of the UI is that you see the actual code of what you're doing in the graphical user interface, in a little window on the side. Whatever you're doing, you see the code, what's happening. And you can really quickly switch between using the GUI and using the code. That's really useful.Even if it's a relatively technical tool or platform, it's very intuitive and graphical. It's very appealing in terms of the user interface. The UI has a graphically interface with the raw data in a table. The table can be as big as you want it, depending on your use case. You can easily get a report combining your data, along with calculations and graphical dashboards. You don't need a lot of training, because the UI is relatively very intuitive.Being able to build and modify dashboards on the fly with Activeboards streamlines my analyst time because my analysts aren't doing it across spreadsheets or five different tools to try to build a timeline out themselves. They can just ingest it all, build a timeline out across all the logging, and all the different information sources in one dashboard. So, it's a huge time saver. It also has the accuracy of being able to look at all those data sources in one view. The log analysis, which would take 40 hours, we can probably get through it in about five to eight hours using Devo.

The most valuable feature is the search capability, which is simple to use.It's a robust, mature product and you can do some really complex operations and analytics.In terms of ArcSight Logger's most valuable feature, it is their scalability. ArcSight's real advantage is its scalability because they have two layers, including the logger layer.It's an efficient solution.We haven't had any crashes or bugs. It is stable.The ability to customize the solution in great detail is its most valuable features. We can customize the use cases and also have the ability to do scripting. We can personalize our dashboard as well. The scalability the solution offers is quite impressive.The most valuable feature is the level of detail that you can see about certain events, even when they do not come up in the console.In our country we are a little bit private in terms of solutions, so we are just starting to use the basic data capture. Now some users can start to use additional features that come with Micro Focus ArcSight like user behavior analytics for investigating.

The log analysis and reporting are both quite good.The most valuable features are customizing reports, and the ability to drill down to display critical information in real-time.The program is stable and it gives me great visibility.It has a simplified and user-friendly interface.It is a simple and solution.The IBS (Intent Based Segmentation) and application web filtering are the most valuable aspects of the solution.The feature I find most useful is the handy dashboard.We use this functionality every day, and obtain reports on things like how many people are using the VPN, which websites are being accessed, and whether hackers are trying to penetrate into our network.

Cons
The Activeboards feature is not as mature regarding the look and feel. Its functionality is mature, but the look and feel is not there. For example, if you have some data sets and are trying to get some graphics, you cannot change anything. There's just one format for the graphics. You cannot change the size of the font, the font itself, etc.There's always room to reduce the learning curve over how to deal with events and machine data. They could make the machine data simpler.Their documentation could be better. They are growing quickly and need to have someone focused on tech writing to ensure that all the different updates, how to use them, and all the new features and functionality are properly documented.

We have had problems with archiving.You have limited reporting capabilities and I wouldn't choose ArcSight Logger for this purpose.I would rate the technical support only 5 out of 10. The technical support is not satisfactory.The console in older versions is not user-friendly.In the next release, I want to see more intelligence.The solution should make it possible to integrate network analysis features.I would like to see better scheduling in the next release of this solution.I think the ArcSight team should try to simplify legacy products for the customers, because that product is not easy to use or to work with. It needs more more competency or appeal to use. We hope Micro Focus is trying to resolve this.

More ArcSight Logger Cons »

The solution lacks business intelligence features. It's much too basic.The reports are good, but they are over-summarized.The technical support is not very good.When it comes to pushing logs to a SIEM, most of the time we have some issues when it comes to filtering.I'm looking for something more efficient to analyze different foreign things. That's why FortiSIEM could compete with FortiAnalyzer.The solution could use more graphics and be more specific in the dashboard. This way, I'm able to understand everything and effectively understand what's going on, including what's incoming and outgoing. Right now, I have to look up everything. I need a dashboard so that I can see specific items right there in one place.I would like to see an improvement in the technical support. Stronger authentication will also be a plus.When somebody is new to the system they find it difficult to perform certain operations, like backups, and to see where the reports are.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I'm not involved in the financial aspect, but I think the licensing costs are similar to other solutions. If all the solutions have a similar cost, Devo provides more for the money.We have an OEM agreement with Devo. It is very similar to the standard licensing agreement because we are charged in the same way as any other customer, e.g., we use the backroom.It's a per gigabyte cost for ingestion of data. For every gigabyte that you ingest, it's whatever you negotiated your price for. Compared to other contracts that we've had for cloud providers, it's significantly less.

ArcSight Logger is very expensive compared to their competitors, but when we talk to the customer and explain what the features are and how we can scale, they understand. Still, ArcSight is more expensive than the competition.

More ArcSight Logger Pricing and Cost Advice »

The pricing of this solution is fair, and it is based on what you can manage.The program is expensive.The price is quite expensive. Fortinet products are very expensive. That is something which they should also look at, because if you compare Fortinet product to, say, Sophos for example, Fortinet is really high and that's the only thing which is a drawback for most users.We have around 12 devices and yearly we spend approximately $14,000.All Fortinet programs come at a good price.We have several products including Fortinet Wireless, FortiGate Firewalls, and FortiAnalyzer, which are bundled together and cost approximately $50,000 USD annually.
