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.""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.""Devo is definitely cheaper than Splunk. There's no doubt about that. The value from Devo is good. It's definitely more valuable to me than QRadar or LogRhythm or any of the old, traditional SIEMs.""[Devo was] in the ballpark with at least a couple of the other front-runners that we were looking at. Devo is a good value and, given the quality of the product, I would expect to pay more.""Be cautious of metadata inclusion for log types in pricing, as there are some "gotchas" with that."

Overview

Devo is the only cloud-native logging and security analytics platform that releases the full potential of all your data to empower bold, confident action when it matters most. Only the Devo platform delivers the powerful combination of real-time visibility, high-performance analytics, scalability, multitenancy, and low TCO crucial for monitoring and securing business operations as enterprises accelerate their shift to the cloud.

ManageEngine FileAudit Plus is an agent-based file auditing and reporting software. Monitor in real-time the changes to all files in the file system along with thorough reports on every activity as to 'who' did 'what', 'when' and 'from where'. Keep track of changes made to the files, file objects in the folders or sub-folders and shares. Watch out for any changes made to a particular type of file (for e.g. *.log) or choose to exclude servers and file types.

Any good organization's security policies would recommend the use of a real-time file monitoring tool to continuously monitor the system files and Compliance standards like PCI DSS (11.5), Sarbanes-Oxley (Section 404), FISMA (NIST SP800-53) specifically regulate the need to perform periodic checks for any unauthorized modification of critical files on Windows File servers (system files, configuration files or text files; and ensure a reporting activity for periodic security analysis or for forensics in the event of a security breach.

With FileAudit Plus, keep a detailed record of every file access and activity, get email alerts for critical / unusual activities, monitor file permissions, identify file owners and meet Compliance requirements.
