Anyone switching from SolarWinds NPM? What is a good alternative?


With the security issues associated with SolarWinds - are people switching to other vendors?   Which ones are you switching to?

We’ve switched from Solarwinds to Centreon even before the issue occurred. It’s way cheaper and is a good alternative and very flexible to your needs. You can play with it yourself.

Thousand Eyes acquired by Cisco, interesting synergies with AppDynamics APM.

Please check out InfraonIMS from EverestIMS Technologies.


(https://www.everestims.com/inf...)The major advantage is an integrated solution which not only monitors the complete IT Infra but also provides complete visibility into the ticket lifecycle for any issues detected via the PINK-Certified InfraonDesk ITSM engine. From a security standpoint, the tool is OWASP Certified for higher levels of protection against malicious attacks.

@reviewer1140534 What experience do you have with this tool? I'm looking for NCM alternative for a medium size network (3000 network devices like routers and switches)

The hackers targeted SolarWinds because SolarWinds has many customers. To minimize the risk of being hacked through one of your vendors, this suggests choosing unpopular vendors with few customers. Which is completely irrational.


Summary - this is a really hard problem and switching vendors does nothing to reduce your risk of this type of hack.

@Bernd Harzog I believe the switching of vendors can reduce this type of risk, considering the hack was accomplished through the supply chain process. Businesses need to find vendors that protect their supply chain with multiple layers of intrusion and anomaly detection stacks, which should be augmented by AI-powered networks, machine learning algorithms as well as human-supervised security protocols. Finding a vendor that maintains the end-to-end ownership of its supply chain process should be a necessity. There is also the conversation of products that run within the Windows environment verses Unix, which has it's advantages considering the hackers were able to take control of several windows tools via the hack.

@Jim Greenway So let's assume that you do all of the things that you listed above to protect your supply chain process. Do you then legally guarantee to your customers (via a contract with penalties) that you will not get hacked, and if you do then you will pay penalties to the customer as outlined in the agreement?In my opinion, solving this problem will either require the painful approach outlined directly above, or security solutions that customers can purchase and operate that are guaranteed to be able to detect and prevent these types of hacks.To the best of my knowledge, right now, there is no good answer.
