The setup is straightforward. Their architecture includes an adapter. Using it, you can easily connect to different devices for collecting logs. The solution has a data store and the adapter sends the logs to the data store. There is a correlation engine from which you can correlate the logs and reports. They have both a cloud-based and on-premise model also. Overall, it is not complex, it is quite easy to do. The deployment depends on the client environment. If the client has only one location, we can deploy within ten to 15 days. If a client is spread across geographies, it will take more time: two, three, or four months. It all depends on the number of locations the client has and the number of devices. If the device list is small, we can do a very fast implementation. If the device list is big, it's going to take time. Typically, although it depends on the number of locations, about two to three people would be enough to do the deployment. But to monitor the data in our security operations center, we typically require three level-one analysts. Each of our three shifts requires three people. There will also be a couple of level-two and a level-three. So about five to six people are enough to monitor a single client. View full review »

The initial setup was straightforward. It was not complex. We were a new company, so we were starting from scratch, which made it easy to set things up. We didn't have packages we needed implemented individually. When it came to deployment, first we just took the responsibility of ensuring that all logs started coming into the data store. Then we casually started taking some of the use cases that came along with it. Shortly after that, when our application started coming, we implemented it. The first set of integrating applications included 40 devices. In the end, it took about two or three months. View full review »
