Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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 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.""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."

"Providing real-time visibility for threat detection and prioritization - QRadar SIEM provides contextual and actionable surveillance across the entire IT infrastructure.""The ability to transition from microscopic to macroscopic view, instantly, is very good.""It is very stable. We have not faced interruptions in the past four and a half years.""It has improved comprehensive visibility for what is going on in the perimeters, and on the inside, as well.""This solution has allowed us to correlate logs from multiple sources.""We get events and make the correlation, or rules. In IBM, we can implement our customer's rules. We can have very clear status threats and severity of antigens.""Provided that the report is prebuilt and I can find what I am looking for, the reporting is the most valuable feature in this solution.""This solution provides me with various alarms, and I have found security issues with some of my other products."

"We use this solution to examine disparate log sources and provide a cohesive method to search for anomalous behavior.""The feature that makes it usable is the web interface.""The ability to investigate a particular period of time where you can analyze logs is its most valuable feature.""It has centralized monitoring for our security operations. Therefore, it improves our analysts' work.""The most valuable features would be the automation, reporting, and the support.""The Web Console is my favorite. It enables me, at a glance, to see the health of the environments.""Even other products we have that feed into it, instead of having to watch all of them we only have to watch one. For example, we have CrowdStrike, so instead of having to pay attention that solution - because their dashboard doesn't really pop when an alarm comes up - we can see issues with the red on the LogRhythm alarm. That is very nice.""We take in around 750 million logs a day. We have a lot of products and that would be a lot of different panes of glass that we would have to look through otherwise. By centralizing, we can triage and take steps much more quickly than if we tried to man that many interfaces that come with the products."

Cons
"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.""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.""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."

More Devo Cons »

"AI is superb but need improvements.""I would like to see a better GUI.""Technical support is good, but not great.""We would like to see better instrumentation for debugging changes in the log flow.""The interface is very old. IBM should remake it into a more modern interface.""There are reports that I would like to generate that are either not included, or I cannot find.""There is a lot of manual configuration required in order for the product to run smoothly, and I think that it could be made more automatic.""It is very difficult to activate all of the network equipment, and it would help if it were made easier."

More IBM QRadar Cons »

"I would like to see support added for Exchange 2016, and CheckPoint OPSec Lea.""It is a product that is very hard to use.""I would like to see more integration with more products that are out there within the same security field.""Stability has probably been one area where Health Checks have not been great with the product. We have been told that they are going to improve Health Checks on product, though we do struggle with them on a daily basis.""Scalability misses the mark sometimes, especially when you have an integrated disaster recovery built into the solution.""My biggest issue - I know that they say they're doing it - is that the API-building is extremely important. They keep saying it's coming, it's coming. It's not coming fast enough. I don't care if they need to double their team size to get it out there quicker, the world is already in the cloud and we can't monitor it. That's a big problem for us. My boss keeps coming to me about it. That's an issue.""My biggest complaint is documentation. Everyone tells me, "We have documentation on the Community site." I have searched for different types of documentation on numerous occasions, and it might be there, but it's not easily findable.""My big thing is the easability. I don't like to go to two different systems. The fat client that you have to install to configure it, then the web console which is just for reporting and analysis. These features need to collapse, and it needs to be in a single solution. Going through the web solution in the future is the way to do it, because right now, it is a bit cumbersome."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""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.""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."

More Devo Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing needs to be such that they are more competitive with other vendors.""There are additional costs, such as the cost associated with the different hardware required for implementation and deployment. Along with the add-on apps, these are all additional costs, and they require licensing as well.""In terms of additional costs, it depends on the subscription that you choose. There are plenty of options to choose from.""Our licensing costs for this solution is on a yearly basis.""It's too expensive. The licensing is also a little bit difficult to understand because you have to license it per event and per number of flows.""QRadar is quite expensive. It wouldn't be worth it for a small business...""I would like for them to lower the price.""The pricing is good."

More IBM QRadar Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Everything is expensive with LogRhythm, and you don't get anything for free.""When it comes time to renew, they say, "This is what you are using. This is what we can do for you." So, they work with you on pricing.""We have seen a measurable decrease in the mean time to detect and respond to threats. As it comes out new features and new releases, the window is becoming a lot narrower because you can pivot a lot more with the data. Therefore, the new features and enhancements are reducing that.""The nice thing about LogRhythm is you can either use the agents, getting a certain number of agents with your license depending on how you want to go, and those agents do a lot of cool things, or you can use CIS Log host, then you have like an unlimited number of them.""The solution has provided us with consistency and increased staff productivity through orchestrated automated work flows by at least 20 percent.""I have seen a measurable decrease in the mean time to detect and respond to threats. We went from not detecting them to detecting them. We can actually pick up what is anomalous in our network now.""In comparison to the competition, they are more affordable. This allows us to do more with less."
