Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"I'm not so familiar with the tool but I like the interaction of the console to the picture. Patching is the primary model I have been focusing on for the last couple of weeks. So I have created a proof of concept environment and have been checking the available features.""The security features are very valuable.""For incident response tasks, all these tasks can get done in minutes with minimal disruption to the end-user.""Threat hunting is a very good feature on Tanium. We have just started using it and have not used it extensively."

More Tanium Pros »

"The most valuable feature is the support for monitoring Cisco switches.""The implementation process is very straightforward.""The most valuable feature is the alert and alarm monitoring.""The best thing about Zabbix is the integration and the APIs that are included are very fast""The integration capabilities and APIs are the best part.""Zabbix is both stable and scalable.""The flexible licensing model is one of the solution's most valuable aspects. It really allows for great flexibility for companies.""The most valuable feature is monitoring."

Cons
"Most of the time, agent-relative issues have to be more equipped with self-healing features. At times, the agent is there, but for some reason, it doesn't report a status. It gives certain problems that are obviously agent-based.""The solution lacks mobility.""The solution can give a lot of false positives.""The performance could improve in future releases. We have had performance issues in specialized web environments, but overall I think the problems are less than 2% of the computer systems being used."

More Tanium Cons »

"The main problem with Zabbix is that you have to spend time writing templates for all of the products that you have.""The server monitoring could be better.""If Zabbix had a better dashboard then it would be nice.""The only improvement I would suggest, revolves around its AI and ML capabilities.""For us, the initial setup was complex""The documentation could be improved.""Having a more customizable interface and dashboard would be an improvement.""I would like to remotely connect to the computer, and Zabbix doesn't have this capability."
