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

Pros
The web interface is great — very useful and user-friendly.The incident case management is the most valuable feature. Even though there's always something I find I would like to add to that feature, the ability to quickly sort through all the logs, network and endpoint data, etc., and add it to an incident case as part of the investigation, is nice. Having it automatically timeline that additional data into the original incident timeline, and correlate it to other notable events and activities on the network, results in a huge improvement in our overall confidence that we've quickly traced down the right source of an issue.The alerting to drive investigations and remediation has been its most valuable feature.​It improved my organization by building a security alerting program.

It's easy to build rules and actions based on the logs and event types we collect with the software.This tool is simple to use.The most valuable feature is the reporting.The graphical user interface is very user-friendly. SolarWinds is a hybrid solution so you can use it across many platforms.The most valuable feature of this solution is the visibility into both attempted and failed logins.We did previously use a different solution, but SolarWinds is much better. It's easy to interact with SolarWinds. It's easy to operate, easy to configure and is generally easier compared to what we were working with before.It performs network behavior monitoring, log monitoring, and disaster recovery monitoring.The most valuable feature is the ease of use for the end user.

Cons
The interface for doing investigation needs to be enhanced with minor improvements that would make it more useful.The reporting is the weakest aspect. There needs to be multi-level grouping for events (for example, group by user and destination). Right now, we can do a group by user and a separate table or group by destination. But I'd be more interested in where a person was logging into instead of who was logging in or where he was logging in.Customised alert recipients need to be added to allow better first-line action and quicker response. Configurable honeypots would be a welcome addition.

There are no multiple dashboards which would allow you to see information side-by-side.I would like to have a more customizable dashboard.There is no correlation made between log entries, so no threat information is presented.The reporting could be more robust. It can be a lot more granular and that will make it a lot more useful in comparison to how it is incorporated at the moment.I would like to be able to dig deeper into the visibility of events or incidents to determine whether they are malicious, such as by doing behavior analysis.The solution's technical support is okay, but we don't have an SLA, and sometimes the response times are very slow.Training for this solution needs to be improved, as new employees are sometimes unfamiliar with the product.It can be difficult for users who are inexperienced with the solution.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Licensing is by endpoint and amount of retention time (at least ours is). Default retention was one year, but we are able to push the retention further if needed. There's also a provide-your-own-S3 option for longer retention if you don't want to pay for the additional retention years in your Rapid7 agreement.The pricing and licensing are competitive.

Licenses can only be purchased in blocks of fifty at a time.The pricing model would benefit from having package deals with other SolarWinds products.We do a yearly license renewal. For a year, the solution costs roughly $500,000 USD. There are no costs beyond this yearly fee.
