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

Pros
The most valuable features are the threat prediction and network forensics.The machine learning is quite good.Performance and reporting are very good.The most valuable features are the integration and ease of use.The most valuable feature is that we can create our own connectors for any application, and NetWitness provides the training and tools to do it.The most valuable features are the packet decoder, log decoder, and concentrator.It's fully scalable. There is no limit. Of course, the license limits per day the number of terabytes. In my opinion, it's very flexible.The most valuable feature is the ability to write rules and triggers for network communication, and then being able to investigate based on that.

Customer support and making sure that we're successful has been one of the best features, one that we weren't even looking for during evaluation, but that's what we have found.I was looking for software as a service rather than having issues with managing hardware, upgrades, updates. I was trying to step away from that. Those were the key factors when looking at Securonix as a full-feature SIEM with next-generation capabilities available.The feature that I have found most valuable is their analytics platform where they have the open security data-link, which they introduced. This is typically different from the other vendors.The most valuable feature is being able to look at users' behavioral profiles to see what they typically access. One of the key events that we monitor is people's downloading of objects... It's very easy to see people's patterns, what they typically do.[The solution has] incident-management or case-management functionality. If someone were to download a high number and we decided we needed to investigate it, I could open a case right in the tool. It would be able to directly reference the data that they downloaded and we could open and shut the case directly in the tool, as well as report from it.One of the most valuable features it has is the thread chaining. One of the common issues that we always had was the number of anomalies that we used to get and the number of alerts that we used to get. But with this approach of thread chaining, we've found the false-positive rate has decreased very significantly. That was something that we never could have achieved before.When we were looking for products for our security monitoring needs, our biggest requirement was that we wanted something based on machine-learning and analytics. If you go with rules, it can raise a lot of noise. Securonix, with its UEBA capability, had the best analytics use-cases.The machine-learning algorithms are the most valuable feature because they're able to identify the 'needle in the haystack.'

Cons
Lots of competing products have vulnerability protection built into their products, and this solution would be improved by including that support.The solution needs to incorporate big data in the future.The user interface is a little bit difficult for new users and it needs to be improved.The documentation is not as structured as I would like, personally, and I think that it can be improved and made much more user-friendly.The initial setup is very complex and should be simplified.Log aggregation is an issue with this solution because there are a huge number of alerts in a single instance.They should implement algorithms to digest that data and produce additional, more advanced reporting, alerting and support of internal security teams.The system looks like it is a mix of a bunch of different systems, and nothing looked like it was quite together.

Some of the user experience when doing threat-hunting, such as being able to see multiple types of analytics from different log sources in one view, would be beneficial. Right now, there are some limitations around that.There is slight room for improvement in terms of the initial deployment. What I see is that Securonix is more focused on their product. They are expanding, in a big way, the number of customers. So there has to be a number of dedicated teams to jump on and speed up the deployment process.The pricing. I'm not sure how they are proceeding with the identity based pricing compared with DB pricing which most of the vendors are using today.We have a lot of users who, because they're engineers and they're bringing down product data - where, at times, a top-level product could be 10,000 or 15,000 objects - it's difficult for us to determine what should be a concern and what shouldn't be a concern. We work with the Securonix folks to try to come up with better ways to identify that.One of the things they can improve on a little bit is the usability side, to make some things simpler... The tool does have a lot of knobs, you can turn a lot of things on and off and you can change things. Sometimes, it can become a little overwhelming. They should remove some confirmation options and make it simpler for the less mature customers and people who are still trying to grasp it.We have compliance needs. We have investigation needs. And we have situations where an analyst needs to look at threats. These three things require a different view of how they look at the threats. What would be good is to have Securonix create three different views of their Security Command Center so that, depending on the persona of the person logging in, they'd get the relevant data they need and not see everything.There is room for improvement in the product's integration with ServiceNow and in the reporting features.Securonix implements risk scores based on different policies that are triggered. We've seen some challenges with the risk scores and how they trigger. These are things that Securonix has recognized and they've been working with us to help improve things.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Many clients are not able to purchase the packet capability because there is a huge amount of data, and the cost depends on the number of EPS (Events per second), as well as the number of gigabytes of data per day.We have a perpetual license, so the total cost of ownership is not very expensive. It's a good investment.This is a pricey solution; it's not cheap.The licenses are good but the cost is very expensive.It is cheap.

We went in on a three-year agreement which has an annual licensing fee, based upon the number of people that we're monitoring. There have not been any additional costs to the standard licensing fees.We have a license from our 5.0, so that license just continued. We paid them the extra cloud-hosting costs for a year which were about $300,000.A good thing about Securonix is that they don't charge by volume of data or number of devices... They charge by the number of employees, which is a much more predictable number for me, versus data. Our costs are in the $100,000 range over a three-year subscription.We have an annual license. We pay $200,000 for the base licensing and we pay another $50,000 for the software as a service.

Overview

If you’re relying on log data to detect and prevent cyber threats, you’re in trouble. Attackers increasingly evade detection of log-centric security and network monitoring tools. But logs combined with full packet, endpoint NetFlow data are proven to provide the essential details for early threat detection. Here’s a closer look at our solution.

SNYPR is a next-generation security analytics platform that transforms big data into actionable security intelligence. Built on a Hadoop big data security lake, SNYPR combines an open data model, log management, security incident and event management (SIEM), user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) and fraud detection into a complete, end-to-end platform that can be deployed in its entirety or in flexible, modular components.
