Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the way it handles data, from Layer 2 up to Layer 7. We can see everything that happens in the network.""There are many valuable features in this product, but probably the biggest is the customization capability it has.""The most valuable features are security detections, perimeter detection, dashboards, and alerts."

"Aside from having the logs that are just on the firewall, we're able to get the traffic as it's going in between, throughout our network. It isolates end sources that are having issues, where we don't have any other tools that would be able to go down to an end-user's computer to find out what's going on.""It catches bigger issues on a weekly basis. That's how often we find something big enough that the only reason we know about it is because of the nGeniusONE. The bigger issues are mostly security-type issues: Odd traffic leaving our network or coming into it, that has found its way past a firewall.""Deep packet inspection is probably the strongest feature.""Valuable features include data threat detection, network analytics, and overall bandwidth monitoring.""For me, the most valuable features are the dashboards which we use to highlight the overall impact to the customers, and being able to drill down into the nitty-gritty of the customer experience.""The fact that it's able to capture and store packets from the wires is very useful for troubleshooting with our vendors, when issues do come up. It's valuable that we have that overall data for them.""The details it provides are among the most valuable features; the ability to drill down and get to the packet level.""If one of our network pipes is getting plugged up by somebody using too much bandwidth, we can use the NETSCOUT tool to examine and find out what is going on."

Cons
"They have a new solution, ExtraHop Reveal(x), and I think it needs improvement.""This solution would be improved if it had the ability to retain data longer.""Network visibility is something that needs to be improved."

"I'd like to see the nGeniusONE, the nGeniusPULSE, and the OptiView, their three separate products, work a little better together, a little more streamlined.""Another thing that would help out is if they packaged the NetFlow monitor into nGeniusONE. Their NetFlow monitor works with nGeniusONE where you can actually get the netflow of pretty much anything you hook it up to. But it's a separate box that you have to buy. If there was a way that could package that into nGeniusONE, it would be a complete package straight out of the box.""There are so many pieces of their product that integrate with one another that perhaps a recommendation for improvement would be some sort of bigger overview and map to help understand how all their pieces integrate together.""The feature I am looking for is the Arbor technology, especially to run in parallel with our firewall... It's getting there.""A lot of tools highlight what's going on but they don't actually pinpoint the user experience. It would be good if there were a small message or something highlighting what the user experience is like and any degradation that's actually occurring.""For individual subscriber tracings, sometimes it does not capture all the messages. There is a little bit of room for improvement there.""It could have an easier to understand interface.""One of the products we use is SolarWinds, and it provides a very cool mapping of an agent from end-to-end. If NETSCOUT could somehow implement that into their design... make it quicker and easier to get those net paths, it would be huge."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is higher than other solutions, but with such good features, I think it's worth it.""The price of this solution for our environment is about £650,000 ($855,000 USD) for three years."

"Their pricing is very competitive with other solutions... But what I like about NETSCOUT's licensing is that it's shared across all their platforms. They don't create a new licensing scheme for every one of their products. So for nGeniusONE, you buy a certain license level, and it works on all of their products.""Cost is probably the biggest drawback. Compared to some of the newer vendors that have popped up in the space, it's definitely more on the expensive side... [But] it's been able to keep its value, even in the face of the cheaper competition.""The biggest problem we have with this product is the expense.""It can be expensive, but if you have a good configuration, based on what you are looking for, it's okay, it's manageable.""It is very expensive, but it's well worth the money.""It is a little overall pricey and expensive, but you get what you pay for.""The scalability becomes very expensive quickly.""The license becomes cost prohibitive very quickly."
