Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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 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.""The ability to have high performance, high-speed search capability is incredibly important for us. When it comes to doing security analysis, you don't want to be doing is sitting around waiting to get data back while an attacker is sitting on a network, actively attacking it. You need to be able to answer questions quickly. If I see an indicator of attack, I need to be able to rapidly pivot and find data, then analyze it and find more data to answer more questions. You need to be able to do that quickly. If I'm sitting around just waiting to get my first response, then it ends up moving too slow to keep up with the attacker. Devo's speed and performance allows us to query in real-time and keep up with what is actually happening on the network, then respond effectively to events.""The real-time analytics of security-related data are super. There are a lot of data feeds going into it and it's very quick at pulling up and correlating the data and showing you what's going on in your infrastructure. It's fast. The way that their architecture and technology works, they've really focused on the speed of query results and making sure that we can do what we need to do quickly. Devo is pulling back information in a fast fashion, based on real-time events."

More Devo 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."

"The client site login is pretty extensible and probably cost-effective.""It is very stable. We have not had any problems.""It has helped us look at modern technology, as well as penetrate our legacy systems, to see where the bottlenecks are.""The product is adept at log mining.""The stock analysts and security people use one single dashboard (one single location) to check our logs.""It scales better in the cloud than on-premise.""It has a big user base, so the community is useful.""It provides logs in one place, so they are easy to find. It collects the logs from multiple places, then you have just one place where you see the whole flow from the front-end to the back-end."

Cons
"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.""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.""There is room for improvement in the ability to parse different log types. The breadth of overall log parsers that exists right now is an area that they could improve. Natively, there's more that could be done by Devo then what it can and can't understand from a parsing perspective.""Devo has a lot of cloud connectors, but they need to do a little bit of work there. They've got good integrations with the public cloud, but there are a lot of cloud SaaS systems that they still need to work with on integrations, such as Salesforce and other SaaS providers where we need to get access logs."

More Devo 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."

More ExtraHop Reveal(x) for IT Operations Cons »

"I would like some additional AI capabilities to provide additional information about things going wrong and things going well.""If it could be made available as a service, this would be much better than as a product.""We would like more integrations with other cloud products, not just AWS, e.g., Azure.""There are new services which are coming up. If Splunk can catch up with the speed of Amazon, and with the integration, instead of us waiting for another year or so, that would be good.""The integration with all our tool sets felt like we were reinventing the wheel, which was a pain point for us.""The search could be improved. Now, it is a bit difficult to write search queries because they become quite long, then maintaining those long search queries is a quite challenging.""The historical data extraction needs improvement. I would like the capability of taking data and having it trend longer.""A problem that we had recently had was we licensed it based on how much data you upload to them every day. Something changed in one our applications, and it started generating three to four times as many logs and. So now, we are trying to assemble something with parts of the Splunk API to warn ourselves, then turn it off and throttle it back more. However it would be better if they had something systematically built into the product that if you're getting close to your license, then to shut things down."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""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.""We have seen ROI. We have seen cost savings in maintenance, upkeep, and support."

More Devo 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."

More ExtraHop Reveal(x) for IT Operations Pricing and Cost Advice »

"I assume that the pricing is reasonable, because if it was too costly, there are other alternatives.""We have seen ROI and improvements as we have continued to use the product, but they are more reactive.""Splunk is not free.""It would be nice if the pricing were cheaper. However, we did purchase it.""We have had a reduction in the time it takes to resolve issues and correlate what has failed.""The pricing seems good relative to the other vendors that we have had here. However, they need to find ways to be more flexible with the licensing and be able to deal with situations where we start generating more logs. Maybe having some controls in the Splunk interface to turn it off, so we don't have to change anything in our application.""Some of the insights that we have obtained as a part of using Splunk have greatly helped us in increasing our revenue in terms of selling our products.""I am not personally involved with the pricing of the solution."
