i-SIEM Pricing and License Cost

Dannie Combs
Senior Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer at Donnelley Financial Solutions
We were looking at a seven figure investment being necessary to sustain our growth projections for our log ingestion requirements, just for production. We had a goal of ensuring that we understood who did what, where, when, and why across all assets, production, staging, development, field devices, laptops, iPads, etc. Not only were we able to avoid all those costs relative to growth, from a point in time forward, the cost structure of empow (as compared to both existing tools) was cheaper for us to migrate then it was to sustain on our legacy platforms. When it's cheaper to migrate, that's very attractive. I don't have to put up with any longer with these hypercomplex licensing agreements. Every time I want to add some additional reporting as a compliance centric or regulatory specific, e.g., GDPR, PCI, or Sarbanes-Oxley, many providers would have an additional license for this, which felt a bit ridiculous to me. With the simplified licensing architecture, there were no hidden "gotchas" down the road with empow. Something I have experienced with other providers that I've worked with in the past. As it relates to the SOAR side of the toolkit, there was no need to purchase an independent SOAR platform. The innovation that empow brings to the market just addressed all those use cases natively. We were able to just completely retire that toolkit out of our environment. View full review »
