Netsurion EventTracker Pricing and License Cost

If you look at competing products, EventTracker is less than 50 percent more expensive, and I pick up all those managed services. I pick up half an FTE without having to pay benefits. View full review »

I don't know if the pricing is by the seat but we're paying about $20,000 to 25,000 a year. On top of that, we pay for the managed support services. That runs us about another $35,000 or $40,000 a year. View full review »

Our cost is significantly less than what it would have been for one of the competitor's products, and that includes the run-and-watch service (SIEMphonic). You can go with one-, two-, or three-year agreements. We pay annually for maintenance on the product. View full review »

When we first got the EventTracker product, we were using SIEM Simplified. At the time they didn't call it that, but it was more of a service thing. So, there was a bit more hand-holding and getting stuff set up, along with failure reports, that they did during the first one to two years. Then, we decided that the the additional money to have someone do these daily reports wasn't terribly useful, so we discontinued that service. Licensing is interesting. By doing it by device, in some aspects, that can work to your advantage, and in some aspects, it can't. There are different licensing models. Back in the day, it used to be events per second and trying to figure out the number of events per second during the year that all of your devices are generating. If you didn't necessarily have a solution in place to begin with, this was a little frustrating. You might add another device and all of a sudden your events per second shoot up quite a bit. With a number of system-based licenses, it's been good. The big thing is is when you get up on that license account, do you continue to add additional licenses or start removing some systems that may be not as critical as others? Like, do we need to be getting logs from different Windows test servers out there? Ideally, yes. But it all depends on the pricing. EventTracker's subscription-based model is interesting as far as yearly license type stuff. It's nice because you know what it's going to be next year. We haven't really looked at any other solutions. The pricing at the time compared to the other solutions was a lot less. A couple of years ago, we actually looked at Splunk. The amount in Splunk's licensing model is based on 20 gigs a day, or something like that. Based on our number of logs and stuff that we were already generating, the costs would be substantially more for the amount of logs that we would be getting. View full review »

The solution is fairly expensive, but in my experience, all of the SIEM applications that I've evaluated or looked at cost about the same. It's just what a system like that costs. View full review »

The pricing and licensing seem very reasonable. The managed service part of it feels like it gives me the equivalent of a full-time engineer for a lot less money. So, I feel it's a good value. View full review »

Licensing is very easy. Our CIO takes care of the billing, but in terms of price point, he hasn't complained, so it must be good. View full review »

The upfront costs have increased, and we have been locked into this contract. The cost of changing over from it is way too high. Going forward, we have to get more licenses for our domain controllers. View full review »
