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

Pros
I really appreciate the fact that the dashboard breaks everything down into a pretty easy view for me... It shows what changes are happening to privileged user accounts, access and identity, what's cropping up. It shows application activity and whether we've got system resources that aren't online and being found anymore. It's a pretty simple, easy, quick hit and there are the supporting logs behind it. If I need to drill down further, I can do that quickly. It's very effective.The most valuable feature is that we get the events: the alerts about disk space and the security reports that we get once a day, including user lockouts and the like.The product satisfies our compliance, and thus, all of our auditors. All of the data that we use and store for all security events is required by our auditors to be kept in a central storage location.If we need to do a search for user lockouts, we can go, search, and find locations where they have been locked out, then keep track of those events, historically.The network alert is the most valuable feature. That way, we in the IT department are aware of user lockout and invalid password attempts way before a user ever even calls in.The most important feature is keeping track of when accounts are created and deleted, when permission groups are changed, and memberships are changed in groups; and overall, how many errors are occurring on the various systems that we're monitoring.The SIEMs and managed service are its most valuable features. We get a weekly report from them which provides a culmination of them combing through millions of events which are triggered across our network every day and minute. Their information security experts basically boil that down to a report which I get emailed once a week. It identifies potential threats and the remediation that I should take to be able to quell those threats.

We did previously use a different solution, but SolarWinds is much better. It's easy to interact with SolarWinds. It's easy to operate, easy to configure and is generally easier compared to what we were working with before.It performs network behavior monitoring, log monitoring, and disaster recovery monitoring.The most valuable feature is the ease of use for the end user.The out of the box reports and dashboard. It was easy to trim down these windows to something we could quickly use.

Cons
Probably the biggest thing is just: Can I search for this and what's the best way to do it? If I'm looking for two events versus a singular event, I just throw it back at them. They're the experts on it.I would like to see the dashboard come up more quickly.The biggest problem is that we have too many domain controllers. So, we have to keep all the clients and main system updated with the latest versions along with making sure all the firewalls are open.There are some issues with searches taking a long period of time, but they assured me that they have implemented a new search function that's available in version 9, but which requires a solid-state hard drive... Depending on how many logs you have it could take a long time to return the results if you're looking back prior to the last 30 days.I'd like to see improvement in the ease of generating reports. It seems fairly cumbersome whenever you decide to start tracking new categories of events. It seems a little kludgy when trying to generate those reports.The deployment of the agents could be a bit easier. We always seem to have a bit of a challenge with that. A lot of times the agents either don't deploy or they quit responding, then we have to go and redeploy them.

The solution's technical support is okay, but we don't have an SLA, and sometimes the response times are very slow.Training for this solution needs to be improved, as new employees are sometimes unfamiliar with the product.It can be difficult for users who are inexperienced with the solution.I imagine we will have to develop our own reports soon, this seems to be more cumbersome.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I don't know if the pricing is by the seat but we're paying about $20,000 to 25,000 a year. On top of that, we pay for the managed support services. That runs us about another $35,000 or $40,000 a year.The upfront costs have increased, and we have been locked into this contract. The cost of changing over from it is way too high.The solution is fairly expensive, but in my experience, all of the SIEM applications that I've evaluated or looked at cost about the same.Licensing is very easy. Our CIO takes care of the billing, but in terms of price point, he hasn't complained, so it must be good.The pricing and licensing seem very reasonable. The managed service part of it feels like it gives me the equivalent of a full-time engineer for a lot less money. So, I feel it's a good value.

We do a yearly license renewal. For a year, the solution costs roughly $500,000 USD. There are no costs beyond this yearly fee.Licensing is on devices, so if you have many, then this may be high.
