Devo Room for Improvement

Devo has a lot of cloud connectors, but they need to do a little bit of work there. They've got good integrations with the public cloud, but there are a lot of cloud SaaS systems that they still need to work with on integrations, such as Salesforce and other SaaS providers where we need to get access logs. We'll find more areas for improvement, I'm sure, as we move forward. But we've got a tight relationship with them. I'm sure we can get anything worked out. View full review »

I don't use the Activeboards' visual analytics that much. I just look at the data, most of the time. The Activeboards feature is not as mature regarding the look and feel. Its functionality is mature, but the look and feel is not there. For example, if you have some data sets and are trying to get some graphics, you cannot change anything. There's just one format for the graphics. You cannot change the size of the font, the font itself, etc. You get a graphic that works well in some cases, but in other cases, the numbers are too small and you cannot do anything about it. Overall, the graphic presentation of data is okay, but I miss the basic functionality of being able to change how things look. View full review »

There's room for improvement within the GUI. There is also some room for improvement within the native parsers they support. But I can say that about pretty much any solution in this space. Those are the standards where they need to improve because that's usually where they lag. View full review »

The only downfall that I have is it is browser based. So, when you start doing some larger searches, it will cause the browser to lock up or shut down. You have to learn the sweet spot of how much data you can actually search across. The way that we found around that is to build out really good Activeboards, then it doesn't render as much data to the browser. That's the work around that we use. As far as ingestion, recording, and keeping it, I've seen no issues. It comes down to some feature requests here and there, which is normal stuff with software. As a user, I may want to scroll through the filters, but the filter didn't allow scrolling at first. That's a feature that came in with version 6. View full review »

There is room for improvement in the ability to parse different log types. The breadth of overall log parsers that exists right now is an area that they could improve. Natively, there's more that could be done by Devo then what it can and can't understand from a parsing perspective. I would like to see Devo rely more on the rules engine, seeing more things from the flow, correlation, and rules engine make its way into the standardized product. This would allow a lot of those pieces to be a part of SecOps so we can do advanced JOIN rules and capabilities inside of SecOps without flow. That would be a great functionality to add.

There's always room to reduce the learning curve over how to deal with events and machine data. They could make the machine data simpler. Lookup tables could be used to minimize the performance impact in bringing together two different sources of data together and correlating them. This could be something that they could improve, but maybe this has already been fixed. View full review »
