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

Pros
The tool can track logins and login failures. I made my own alert so that if there is a certain number of login failures for a server, it emails me. That is really useful. If I want logins to automatically lock out after a certain number of failed attempts, I can know when that happens.The ability to track activity including the SQL statements is definitely valuable. I really like how the database is laid out. It's straightforward. I can query the back-end tables. I've made a few of my own email alerts based on the data and the tables. It's accessible.

Cons
I submitted a ticket (last year) about archiving/grooming of old records because the GUI functionality was not working. Per their recommendation, I ended up using a command line to do it.The set up is kind of clunky, in my opinion. It's not really intuitive. If they had either a smoother install or better instructions, that would be nice.There is an agent that collects the data on SQL Server. Sometimes it will stop collecting. I'm not exactly sure what's happening but I have to go in and manually restart the agent. It would be nice if the central collection server could send a request to the agent to restart.What would really a good thing is if you could refer to an external list or table for filtering on, say, certain applications, IP addresses, or host names; or perhaps even combinations of host name and application name.

I would like to see improvement in the integration part of the tool. This should be an easy process.The firewall features are not very strong and should be improved.Performance can be slow under heavy loads, but this should be adjusted by scaling.The interface is not user-friendly.The GUI for this solution could use some improvement.Technical support for this solution needs improvement.It would be better to update the solution by using a GUI that guides me, rather than through a CLI.Integration with other databases or third-party products would be useful.

We have all the licenses, which we pay for annually. The price is a little high, but the product is good.The pricing over-all depends on the entry level. For example, if support and maintenance are about $20,000 - $25,000, the initial cost can be five times more. It is less expensive for the company to maintain the client than to make the deployment.Pricing is low and scalable to add features and volume.There is an annual licensing fee for upgrading the device.Licensing fees are on a yearly basis, and it is a good value for the money.The cost of support for this solution is very expensive.
