Netsurion EventTracker Previous Solutions

Richard Teegarden
Network Manager at a energy/utilities company with 51-200 employees
We did not have a previous SIEM. That was a very big push for us. We realized how little we had in the way of eyes on all of our products, unless we did a manual, individual triage. And even then, it was pretty limited. We knew we had a huge blind spot by not putting in a SIEM. It's been phenomenal for some of the small incidents that we've had crop up. It's been fantastic.

We did not have a solution in place prior to EventTracker. Prior to this, in a company I had been at just before I got here, we used IBM's QRadar and, although we did look at that product here, I found that EventTracker was more appropriate for us. I don't think that QRadar offered the same robust integration opportunities with logs and it did not offer the same correlation capabilities that EventTracker does. Also, we get a much better licensing structure and pricing structure. It's a much better value for the dollar with this product. View full review »

We did not have a previous solution. We do annual audits, and the lack of a SIEM showed up in one of our audits as a piece that we needed to start investigating, four or five years ago. We knew that issue was coming. We were too busy dealing with some other things, but when it showed up in the audit, we pushed it up the priority food-chain. We weren't really having any issues by not having a SIEM, but having all the logs in one place sure makes troubleshooting a whole lot easier. if there was an Achilles heel, that was it. We were looking for an easy-to-manage SIEM that provided the functionality that we needed. Since we're a relatively small IT staff, the part that really made EventTracker stand out to us was the run-and-watch service (SIEMphonic), where they are an active partner, reviewing the data that we get, so we don't miss anything. They're acting as a backstop to us. View full review »

Before EventTracker, we did use another solution. I think it was a Symantec SIEM, but they discontinued it. So, we were looking for a different solution. View full review »
Geremy Farmer
Information Technology Coordinator at Magnolia Bank, Incorporated
We did not have a previous solution. They had already purchased this product before I came into the organization. There are a couple systems out there where people have reached out to me throughout the years and said, "Will you do a demo or evaluate our system?" But in my opinion, there's nothing that really stands out that would make me want to leave EventTracker. Even cost-wise, if somebody is cheaper - and I don't believe that they are - it's not significant enough to make that change and go through that whole design and implementation process again, just to save a little bit of money. We are familiar with EventTracker and we're getting the good service that we expect. We really don't have any desire to go with any other vendor at this time. View full review »
