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

Pros
To add workers and even collectors is pretty easy.The seamless integration with FortiGate is the solution's most valuable aspect.Both the collecting logs and duo correlation are valuable features for us.The solution is very stable. It's run for years without the need to do anything except, add new patches when they are available, which are always a good idea to install.Analytics is the most valuable feature. The business service summaries in the dashboards and the correlations for the SIEM are also valuable features.The most valuable feature is the dashboard. CMDB database collects data from a lot of pre-configured devices.The interface is very easy to use. The connector in the core has FortiSIEM support from the vendor.It gives us the opportunity to generate notifications based upon rules that get triggered, and the rules could be specific to PCI, HIPAA, GIBA, NIST, and so forth.

Cons
The dashboard needs to improve.When compared with some competitors, in terms of performance, the CPU and RAM requirements and the capability of coordination with development all need some improvement.The support of the product changed recently, and I don't think it's for the better. They should work to improve the support they offer to clients.They could work on their documentation. If there's anything about the solution that needs improvement, it's that. For example, documentation already is on a very high level but specifically on the CLI there are tons of features which can be fine-tuned and thousands of commands are very difficult to document. If they could make this easier, it would improve the overall solution.Their product support, in general, is not that great. The product support is in the same ecosystem. Their support is improving but it's not that great.vvvThe performance can be improved. Sometimes it takes a long time to fetch data.The nodes on our network did not comply with the SIEM solution. They use a different format parking log.The backup and recovery process for this solution needs improvement.

There are no multiple dashboards which would allow you to see information side-by-side.I would like to have a more customizable dashboard.There is no correlation made between log entries, so no threat information is presented.The reporting could be more robust. It can be a lot more granular and that will make it a lot more useful in comparison to how it is incorporated at the moment.I would like to be able to dig deeper into the visibility of events or incidents to determine whether they are malicious, such as by doing behavior analysis.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We bought the perpetual license, so we own the product, but there is a three-year support renewal fee for that.

Licenses can only be purchased in blocks of fifty at a time.The pricing model would benefit from having package deals with other SolarWinds products.We do a yearly license renewal. For a year, the solution costs roughly $500,000 USD. There are no costs beyond this yearly fee.
