Netsurion EventTracker ROI

JohnBandy
Chief Information Security Officer at Samford University
We feel that we're getting a real ROI. Between having the managed services and having the product on-premise, we feel like we're almost getting the managed services for free. They've given us a very good price. Based on industry standards, it's saving me at least $25,000 to $30,000 a year. View full review »

It has its value, especially when I can say that it's taken over what I was spending about 50 percent of my time on. Not only has it eliminated the need for me to spend time there, but I can put that time to use elsewhere. It's absolutely well worth it. I'm not really the money guy or the budget guy, so I couldn't tell you from a dollars and cents standpoint, but return on investment just for my time alone over the last five years has been tremendous. I no longer spend that daily time - I don't want to say "wasted time" - but it used to take me a tremendous amount of time to sit there and try and play catch up on logs, looking for events and trying to track things on my own. That's been massive. That's been tremendous, not only for me but for the company. It's been well worth the money so I can put my time somewhere else. View full review »

The value of a SIEM comes when you are able to detect something and avoid a problem. It is part of that larger "insurance policy"-type function. You never see a return on investment on an insurance policy until it comes time to use it. But we get value from it every day. Do I think that the investment in the product is giving us value for the dollars we're spending? Absolutely. I look at it this way: If I need a truck to do my job every day, and my job is to haul two-by-fours back and forth between two job sites, do I need the Cadillac pickup truck or do I need the truck with the roll-up windows? They both do the job and they both do it really well, but the value is in the one that has the roll-up windows. It's doing what it's supposed to do. It's doing it well and it lets me retain dollars for other purposes. EventTracker is exactly that. It's giving me all of the features and functions that we need to do our jobs, and at a price point that's incredibly attractive. It allows me to save money and put money into other services to help reduce risk. View full review »

Director of Application Development and Architecture at South Central Power Company
We have been able to save at least one full FTE. The amount we would have to pay that FTE, including benefits, is way more than what we're paying EventTracker for the annual maintenance. It had a positive return on investment almost immediately for us. View full review »

In the security space, it's hard to quantify your return on investment. So, I don't. We spend about $40,000 a year and so. It's hard to say if the SIEM saved that much money. View full review »

I haven't measured the ROI. We don't do normal budgets, as we are not that big of a company. We are mid-sized. View full review »

I don't know exact numbers on ROI, but in my mind it saves us a lot of time. I have six or seven reports that I can peruse through each day, quickly and efficiently, instead of having to go out and collect that data manually. View full review »
