Pros
The advantages of SCOM are that it is definitely user friendly and a more appropriate solution for what we need.Availability monitoring is the feature I have found most valuable, as well as the capacity and ability to send notifications.SCOM has improved our organization by simplifying the monitoring process. The system tells you what the bi-weekly or monthly usage was and that enables us to report this information to the manager. It shows if there was a connectivity issue that needs to be fixed and it's easier to concentrate on what needs to get fixed. System errors, therefore, get fixed faster.The solution is scalable. If you want to monitor more you have to buy more licenses, but you can add on. We don't plan to increase usage.This is a product that does more generally than any of the competing solutions.This solution saves us a lot of work because it reduces the effort that is required in order to start monitoring.This solution helps our application teams by allowing them to drill further into issues and perform a root cause analysis.The most valuable features for us are the monitoring, the health explorer, and the console.

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
I would like more customized reports. People should have some customization option on the dashboards for whenever they put multiple lists into it. Beyond customizing the content, there should be the ability to customize the colors so that they can engage some priority and mark challenges separately.In terms of features that could be improved, I would say the agent integration into the operating system. We are having difficulties integrating Linux into some of the networking devices.Then there is also an issue with capacity and limited space. That is something that needs to be improved.Of course, price is always an issue with Microsoft and could be improved.It lacks certain details that other products do better, like granular access and better application monitoring.All of the areas of reporting are very bad and need to be improved.The end-user components, including the dashboards, the administration console, and the web console, need to be improved.The console feature is very poor, and it would be very good for us if this were improved.

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.

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.
