Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The most valuable feature is anomaly detection, where it finds things that are not allowed internally.
Most of the engineers I've worked with have been really good. Very knowledgeable and easy to work with.
Being able to graph and show data to management has improved our organization. We can show the data to the higher-ups. It shows them that it's picking up on these anomalies and doing its job.
It's a dependable product that is able to pinpoint where we have vulnerabilities if they occur.
Using the Cognitive Analytics feature, we have complete visibility that we didn’t have before.
The most valuable feature about this solution is that it gives me insight of my network.
It has improved our internal knowledge of what's going on with the network, and that's helpful.
The most valuable features of this solution are the logging, keeping threats under control, and keeping our data and environment secure.
Device grouping is very easy, and you can discover thousands of devices in a few minutes.
The solution reduces the complexity of our network monitoring because it can make my engineers do their jobs faster. The solution also reduces troubleshooting time for network administrators to pinpoint issues quicker.
I like the fact that I can aggregate multiple interfaces into a single graph. It allows me to quickly the summary of traffic for multiple devices which is helpful.
The most valuable feature is alerting.
The most valuable features are scalability and reliability.
We're able to recover more expensive ports on our access line devices.
It is fairly simple and easy to use as an all-purpose network monitor.
The product simplifies monitoring by providing real-time alerts through a GUI dashboard, email and texts.
The usability of this solution needs to be improved.
We've run into some issues with the configuration.
They should include Citrix VDIs in the next release.
The GUI could use some improvement. Being able to find features more easily would be a great improvement if it was simplified.
The initial setup is complex, as there is a lot to configure.
It hasn't really improved our direct detection rate but it has definitely reduced our incident response time as we wouldn't have been able to detect threats or immediate risks without this solution.
I would like to see more and cleaner reporting. For example, if I pull up Steven and I want to look and maybe compare him to what you've done in the past week, and compare that to the past six months, the point would be to see what the difference in activity looks like over this time. I don't see that capability in reporting to date. You see that trend but you don't really see a straightforward comparison. That right there is key to what we want to see about the normal activity.
It is time-consuming to set it up and understand how the tool works.
The inclusion of configuration management features and SIP links would improve this solution.
There is a little bit of room to improve in the alerting section to give some more options there. It's all I can think of right now off the top of my head.
That user interface for selecting things needs to be a little more intuitive.
It would be nice if they had twenty-four-hour technical support because we contact Australia and we have to wait for them to open.
Technical support for this solution is bad, as is everything with Cisco support.
If it had more detailed NetFlow information then it would be far better.
The interface could be more user-friendly and it would be nice if there were enhanced options for reporting.
It doesn't do absolutely everything and it will require some additional software or hardware support to be a complete single solution.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Our fees are approximately $3,000 USD.
Licensing is on a yearly basis.
We pay for support costs on a yearly basis.
On a yearly basis, licensing is somewhere around $30,000.
The yearly licensing cost is about $50,000.
The pricing for this solution is good.
The licensing costs are outrageous.
Today, we are part of the big Cisco ELA, and it is a la carte. We can get orders for whatever we want. At the end of the day, we have to pay for it in one big expense, but that is fine. We are okay with that.
The licensing cost is yearly and it's $5,000 to $8,000, I think.
Statseeker is pretty cheap.
This tool would probably be priced well if it had deeper NetFlow capabilities, but for our use case, in particular, we're only recovering ports after ninety days and looking at circuit congestion, it's pretty pricey.
The yearly cost varies as per the number of devices being monitored. The cost for 25,000 devices is about $4500.
We pay somewhere between $5,000 and $8,000 yearly in licensing fees.
When it came to selecting this solution, it came down to cost.
Compared to other solutions such as Zabbix and AKiPS, this solution is very well priced.
We pay a yearly maintenance fee of approximately $40,000 USD.
