We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is the ability to search through a large amount of data."
"The most valuable features are its data aggregation and the ability to automatically identify a number of threats, then suggest recommended actions upon them."
"Because of some of the visualizations that we utilize, we are able to understand strange, unusual traffic on our networks."
"The most valuable feature is being able to take data and put it into other systems so that we could see the output, and to see where we need to apply our focus."
"It's straightforward in terms of configuration and troubleshooting and log management and monitoring as well. These are the edge points in addition to it being a modular solution where you can capitalize on your current licenses with extra licensing models, which can match the customer's business requirement and it can help the customer to design or to actually plan for their own roadmap."
"The solution is extremely scalable. Our customers are regularly scaling up after installing Splunk."
"The most valuable features are the indexing and powerful search features."
"The solution is definitely scalable."
"The 24/7 support is the most valuable feature. They have been able to answer support questions pretty quickly."
"The analytics would have to be our most valuable feature."
"On the Varonis side, technical support is phenomenal. Their ability to explain is very good, and they seem to be very knowledgeable. When I get an alert that doesn't quite make sense, they dive in there and kind of take me through it. That's very useful and very good. There are some false alerts, but it is better to have a false alert than no alert at all."
"It could be easier to scale the solution if you are using it on-premise, not in the cloud."
"The initial setup was complex because some of the configurations that we required needed customization."
"The solution is much more expensive than relative competitors like ArcSight or LogRhythm. It makes it hard to sell to customers sometimes."
"They should work to add more built-in correlation searches and more use cases based on worldwide customer experiences. They need more ready-made use cases."
"The correlation engine should have persistent and definable rules."
"In the future I would like to see simplified statistics and analytical threats."
"The ability to do more complicated data investigation would be a welcome addition for pros, though the functionality now gives most people what they need."
"Currently, a lot of network operations need improvement. We still need people to handle incidents. Our vision is to leverage status and convert it directly from the network devices. It would be ideal if we could take action using APIs and API code and remove manual processes."
"I would like it to have cloud integration."
"I'd like to see automatic updates for this solution. Currently, it's a manual process to update all the keywords"
"We have Microsoft Office 365. I just saw an article today which says that they're actually getting integrated with Microsoft Office 365, which would be a useful feature. For user-based reports, log on activity, and stuff like that, it doesn't seem to really be present like Log360. That could just be my inexperience with it. I've been dealing with it for only about two and a half months."
"My biggest complaint is the way they do pricing... You can never know the pricing for next year. Every single time you adjust to something new, the price goes up. It's impossible to truly budget for it. It goes up constantly."
"There are additional costs associated with the integrator."
"The licensing costs is around 10,000 dollars."
"Pricing varies based on the packages you choose and the volume of your usage."
"You could do a subscription, where you pay yearly, or you could purchase it outright. The licensing cost is based on the number of users on the system that you are monitoring."
