The setup is straightforward. The only complexity comes from the Oracle Database side. Other than that, it is straightforward. It took a half hour to install it. Once you install the manual server, and the detection server on another server you just have to install the alias. I didn't have much problem installing the system. View full review »

The initial setup of the solution was straightforward. It took us less than a week to make sure that we created all the rules. The setup itself it took less than two hours. However, applying all the rules and the configurations, and all the different qualities took longer. It total, everything took close to a week. We only need two people for deployment and maintenance.

The initial setup is a little complex. But once you go through it you get used to it. After using this product it becomes easy to handle, easy to understand. Our deployment took about two months for 2,000 users. Our strategy was simple. I needed to implement it for every user so that we could monitor any data. View full review »

The initial setup is not very complex. You just have to run it from the configuration spreadsheet. If you follow the applied process, it is fine. If you deviate from the process, then the process can begin to become complex due to lack of understanding. You have to enable all the files based on size and there are some endpoint issues, as well. It didn't take us very long deploy. View full review »
