Allows us to monitor access and pull cyber reports quickly. No more searching through logs on each server.

Pros and Cons

  • The out of the box reports and dashboard. It was easy to trim down these windows to something we could quickly use.
  • I imagine we will have to develop our own reports soon, this seems to be more cumbersome.

Cost and Licensing Advice

  • Licensing is on devices, so if you have many, then this may be high.

Our network data is too valuable to share with another company. Our members trust us to keep all sensitive data in house. Enterprise-grade SIEM solutions are priced for large companies and thus stretched well beyond our IT budget. Additionally, all that money didn’t buy real-time analysis and blocking capabilities, which were the most important proactive defense to stop emerging…
