Cons
Dashboards and reports could provide better visualization of SIEM activity.AI is superb but need improvements.Some UI enhancements would be nice, such as exporting custom event properties and the ability to export rules.GUI needs to be improved.I would like to see a more user-friendly product.Maybe there should be more custom rules in the exchange. Basically, we are using a lot of threat rules, so maybe they'll develop something like that.QVM is another instance where they need to revise the vulnerability scoring and the proper remediation details.Search capability and indexing still lag behind competitors. We also need to see improved rule based access controls and rule/event tuning.

I imagine we will have to develop our own reports soon, this seems to be more cumbersome.
