Versatile, scalable, and has a very useful single user interface

What is our primary use case?

We are primarily using the solution as a cloud observability platform. Most use cases are related to service operations, not security operations. This is due to the fact that in security operations our company uses Splunk and other platforms. In this case, in my team, we are using Devo for service operations requirements. We correlate across metrics and trace on that data to understand root causes. For example, we'll look at metrics in jobs, time processes, root cause investigations where we have fails, job performance, deals, payments, et cetera.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's very, very versatile."
  • "Technical support could be better."

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers and end-users. We are using the most recent version of the product. We are using Devo in a public cloud with some other web service we have secured with a VPN built in the company so that it's tunnel secured. I would rate the solution at an eight out of ten. If the solution required fewer fixes and was a bit more flexible, I would rate it higher.

Not user friendly, doesn't integrate well, and has terrible technical support

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution for a variety of tasks. We use it, for example, for authentication, network-related authentication, user-related tasks, and Windows UNIX servers. It's a lot. There's a ton of use cases. I really can't sync right now about every single use case, however, the main things are authentication and network-related systems and all flavors of UNIX Windows.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution can scale."
  • "The solution is clunky."

What other advice do I have?

I'm not sure of which version of the solution we're using. I wouldn't recommend the solution. I'd probably tell others to shy away and look at other products like possibly Splunk, however, it's a pricey option. LogRhythm is pretty good. We're having some issues with it. That said, for the most part, it's okay. Exabeam also seems like it might be a good option. I haven't worked with it personally, however, I've had some experience with a POC. Overall, I would rate the solution at a three out of ten. We didn't have a good experience with it. If it offered, for example, easier behavior analytics…

A stable, scalable solution with comprehensive dashboards and helpful technical support

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is to monitor Cyber Mission databases. I create the diagrams to create an architecture that is then implemented. However, creating these diagrams are for my own learnings since these implementations are usually already available in the cloud office logs.

Pros and Cons

  • "The scalability of the solution is amazing because it can collect a lot of data and you can have your own structure to monitor this data."
  • "An area of improvement would be the licensing of the solution. They need a free license, which would allow faster lead times."

What other advice do I have?

It is important to define different guidelines to integrate Splunk in development, QA, and production deployments. Additionally, define the applications that will be used and the configuration of the databases to collect the data. If this is not done, there will be a lot of issues due to, for example, master access or permissions to use the database collector and blocks.
