Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Nagios monitors our servers, so we know if anything goes wrong and can solve the problem before it happens.""I like the way the solution sends alerts and how it keeps on escalating them.""The most valuable feature is the performance parameters of the system.""The most valuable features are the reports and the way it generates the report in a graphical manner.""The solution is quite efficient."

More Nagios Core Pros »

"The first of the valuable features is how easy it is to access all of the information that's gathered from the assessments... With a lot of other technologies, like Rapid7, if you're using Nexpose you effectively have to be a DBA to get some of the lower-level results from the scans. And Qualys wasn't very intuitive.""The next big one is supportability. In a large enterprise, we have many types of technologies. The technology we previously had didn't even support authentication to a lot of those technologies.""The scanning itself is really the core of the tool, and it's what we're most interested in."

Cons
"It's not that easy to install the product itself. Also, the UI is a bit hard for regular users to navigate through.""I would like to see more training videos.""The core version is no match for the XI version.""The scalability needs improvement, it's not scalable at this time.""It would be nice if the company offered a sales or contract manager that was dedicated to our company so that we would have some sort of link to Nagios, and if we had issues or questions, we'd be able to contact them directly."

More Nagios Core Cons »

"When it comes to... dynamic application scanning, I think they are lagging behind the curve. They have a lackluster solution, to the point where I think they need to determine, as a company, whether or not that's a space they even want to play in.""There are certain circumstances where they may have found a vulnerable service and they just removed the service completely from the device because nobody was using it. There's no way to go into SecurityCenter and mark it, to say, "This is no longer an issue. It doesn't exist anymore." Or, "The risk was accepted for one year, so let's not report it as 'high' until that one year period is done." The handling of operational flow around vulnerability management could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Nagios Core is free to use.""Lessening the price point would be an improvement.""We are using the open-source, unpaid version."

More Nagios Core Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We did a three-year deal where the cost is amortized over the three years. The Elite Support was an additional cost to the standard licensing fees... If you use Security Center, most of the time it is on-premise, so you're going to have some sort of infrastructure to build out and there's going to be a cost associated with that."
