I manage 13 companies that have 300 to 400 companies underneath them altogether. We're a private equity company, so we manage one company, and they control 10 to 20 companies themselves. Our operations are decentralized, so there aren't many existing products suitable for our use cases.
When we initially deployed, Netsurion didn't seem like a particularly robust solution. We had the reporting, and if I told them to look for something specific, they could look for it and report on it. We haven't given them anything outside of the box to look at. It tells us everything that you see. We haven't whittled it down to specific events yet.
Netsurion is on the endpoints. You install it, and it speaks to a web server. We have it on workstations and servers on AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Azure, and everything else. We're using it as a decentralized SIEM product, and it's one of the only ones out there. We use Netsurion for things like log forwarding, and we deploy it on every workstation. It's a manual process. There is an installed agent, and as long as it has internet connectivity, it goes and talks to the centralized server, and Netsurion's SOC monitors the logs for all those devices.
Because we don't have a centralized enterprise network, there are a lot of different companies involved, and they could be anywhere. They could be working from home, or there could be several employees in a coworking space. The Netsurion agent has to be installed on every endpoint and allowed to communicate directly to the internet.
