Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The ability to have high performance, high-speed search capability is incredibly important for us. When it comes to doing security analysis, you don't want to be doing is sitting around waiting to get data back while an attacker is sitting on a network, actively attacking it. You need to be able to answer questions quickly. If I see an indicator of attack, I need to be able to rapidly pivot and find data, then analyze it and find more data to answer more questions. You need to be able to do that quickly. If I'm sitting around just waiting to get my first response, then it ends up moving too slow to keep up with the attacker. Devo's speed and performance allows us to query in real-time and keep up with what is actually happening on the network, then respond effectively to events.""The querying and the log-retention capabilities are pretty powerful. Those provide some of the biggest value-add for us.""Devo provides a multi-tenant, cloud-native architecture. This is critical for managed service provider environments or multinational organizations who may have subsidiaries globally. It gives organizations a way to consolidate their data in a single accessible location, yet keep the data separate. This allows for global views and/or isolated views restricted by access controls by company or business unit.""In traditional BI solutions, you need to wait a lot of time to have the ability to create visualizations with the data and to do searches. With this kind of platform, you have that information in real-time.""The user experience [is] well thought out and the workflows are logical. The dashboards are intuitive and highly customizable.""The most powerful feature is the way the data is stored and extracted. The data is always stored in its original format and you can normalize the data after it has been stored.""One of the biggest features of the UI is that you see the actual code of what you're doing in the graphical user interface, in a little window on the side. Whatever you're doing, you see the code, what's happening. And you can really quickly switch between using the GUI and using the code. That's really useful.""The strength of Devo is not only in that it is pretty intuitive, but it gives you the flexibility and creativity to merge feeds. The prime examples would be using the synthesis or union tables that give you phenomenal capabilities... The ability to use a synthesis or union table to combine all those feeds and make heads or tails of what's going on, and link it to go down a thread, is functionality that I hadn't seen before."

"The detection of threats and reduction of false positive alarms as compared to other solutions are valuable features. It has improved threat detection response and reduced a lot of noise from false positives as compared to our previous SIEM solutions.""The solution is stable and scalable.""There aren't any positive aspects of the solution. It was a complete failure. There are no redeeming features.""Its console is very easy to use and configure. It is very intuitive for our use cases. App integrations are also pretty nice.""Risk scoring was nice. We could exactly see which user had the highest risk score, and then we could pick it up and work on it."

Cons
"We only use the core functionality and one of the reasons for this is that their security operation center needs improvement.""There is room for improvement in the ability to parse different log types. I would go as far as to say the product is deficient in its ability to parse multiple, different log types, including logs from major vendors that are supported by competitors. Additionally, the time that it takes to turn around a supported parser for customers and common log source types, which are generally accepted standards in the industry, is not acceptable. This has impacted customer onboarding and customer relationships for us on multiple fronts.""An admin who is trying to audit user activity usually cannot go beyond a day in the UI. I would like to have access to pages and pages of that data, going back as far as the storage we have, so I could look at every command or search or deletion or anything that a user has run. As an admin, that would really help. Going back just a day in the UI is not going to help, and that means I have to find a different way to do that.""Devo has a lot of cloud connectors, but they need to do a little bit of work there. They've got good integrations with the public cloud, but there are a lot of cloud SaaS systems that they still need to work with on integrations, such as Salesforce and other SaaS providers where we need to get access logs.""Where Devo has room for improvement is the data ingestion and parsing. We tend to have to work with the Devo support team to bring on and ingest new sources of data.""Some third-parties don't have specific API connectors built, so we had to work with Devo to get the logs and parse the data using custom parsers, rather than an out-of-the-box solution.""One major area for improvement for Devo... is to provide more capabilities around pre-built monitoring. They're working on integrations with different types of systems, but that integration needs to go beyond just onboarding to the platform. It needs to include applications, out-of-the-box, that immediately help people to start monitoring their systems. Such applications would include dashboards and alerts, and then people could customize them for their own needs so that they aren't starting from a blank slate.""Some basic reporting mechanisms have room for improvement. Customers can do analysis by building Activeboards, Devo’s name for interactive dashboards. This capability is quite nice, but it is not a reporting engine. Devo does provide mechanisms to allow third-party tools to query data via their API, which is great. However, a lot of folks like or want a reporting engine, per se, and Devo simply doesn't have that. This may or may not be by design."

More Devo Cons →

"It could be improved a little bit more for admin users. There should be more administrative options related to security for admin users. For example, for forensic purposes, the admin should be able to stop a specific user from erasing some information. I would be helpful in certain situations, such as during an internal fraud.""We thought they were going to be a great product, however, they're actually not great at all as an MSP.""When they did upgrades or applied patches, sometimes, there was downtime, which required the backfill of data. There were times when we had to reach out and get a lot of things validated.""The incident response area should be improved.""We would like to see better integration with other products."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We have an OEM agreement with Devo. It is very similar to the standard licensing agreement because we are charged in the same way as any other customer, e.g., we use the backroom."
  • "I'm not involved in the financial aspect, but I think the licensing costs are similar to other solutions. If all the solutions have a similar cost, Devo provides more for the money."
  • "Devo is definitely cheaper than Splunk. There's no doubt about that. The value from Devo is good. It's definitely more valuable to me than QRadar or LogRhythm or any of the old, traditional SIEMs."
  • "[Devo was] in the ballpark with at least a couple of the other front-runners that we were looking at. Devo is a good value and, given the quality of the product, I would expect to pay more."
  • "Be cautious of metadata inclusion for log types in pricing, as there are some "gotchas" with that."
  • "Devo was very cost-competitive... Devo did come with that 400 days of hot data, and that was not the case with other products."
  • "Our licensing fees are billed annually and per terabyte."
  • "I like the pricing very much. They keep it simple. It is a single price based on data ingested, and they do it on an average. If you get a spike of data that flows in, they will not stick it to you or charge you for that. They are very fair about that."

  • "I had heard that it was much cheaper than Splunk and some of the other tools, and they gave us a nice package with support. They accommodated the number of users and support very well."
  • "Its pricing is quite similar to others and is very competitive. The other solutions have different types of licensing, but when you do the math, it is competitive."
  • "Its price is fine. We found it to be cheaper than LogRhythm, Exabeam, Splunk, as well as Elastic Security. A few months ago, when we were comparing Securonix with Elastic Security, we found Securonix to be cheaper than Elasticsearch. We were pretty surprised that Elastic Security is more expensive than Securonix because Elasticsearch is just starting, and it cannot compete with Securonix at this time. So, the pricing of Securonix is pretty good for now."

    Overview

    Devo is the only cloud-native logging and security analytics platform that releases the full potential of all your data to empower bold, confident action when it matters most. Only the Devo platform delivers the powerful combination of real-time visibility, high-performance analytics, scalability, multitenancy, and low TCO crucial for monitoring and securing business operations as enterprises accelerate their shift to the cloud.

    Securonix Security Analytics SNYPR is a next-generation security analytics platform that transforms big data into actionable security intelligence, enabling you to take care of so much more than simply your SIEM (security information and event management) needs. In addition, it contains all of the tools that you may need to enable your organization to successfully handle both log management as well as UEBA (user and entity behavior analytics)-related tasks. The SNYPR management platform gives users the ability to combine security orchestration, automation, and response, security information and event management, network traffic analysis, and user and entity behavior analytics. This single technical environment does away with your need for multiple security, management, and analytics solutions.

    Securonix Security Analytics SNYPR’s unified platform can be scaled up to handle up to one million security events every second. While this load may seem heavy, SNYPR handles it with ease. It is able to reduce incidents of false security positives by 60%. The access certification workload that IT administrators and managers need to deal with can be reduced by as much as 90%.

    The model that this platform uses is based on a machine learning algorithm. This model gives Securonix Security Analytics’s SNYPR platform a number of extremely valuable capabilities. The platform gathers many different types of data and applies what it learns to threats as they arise. The system assigns threats risk values to determine where the areas of highest need are. Machine learning also allows you to respond to slow acting threats by using historical data to inform your response.

    All of the data that the system gathers is stitched together and used to create a complete picture of the risks that the system faces. Any blind spots that may exist are exposed by the collaborative UI that compiles the system data in a single location. This also increases your ability to monitor advanced application threats. 

    Key Features

    Some of Securonix Security Analytics’s SNYPR platform’s key features include:

    • The ability to enrich all data that the SNYPR platform collects. When SNYPR gathers information, it applies relevant data which can be used in the future to gauge whether or not a particular event is a threat.
    • The ability for data redundancy to automatically take place. All of the data that is gathered, analyzed, and processed by SNYPR is automatically copied and distributed across the system. If there is a failure in any particular part of the system, the information will still be preserved.
    • The ability to track historical issues and use that information to help deal with current threats. The SPOTTER feature allows analysts to look back at both old data and the contextual information that is attached to it. They can then use that data to inform their responses to similar threats that they are currently dealing with.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Securonix Security Analytics SNYPR platform stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its ability to significantly reduce the number of false positives that administrators have to deal with and the way that it incorporates contextual information into security events to reduce the time spent finding solutions to problems that arise.

    Peerspot users note the effectiveness of these features. One user wrote, “Securonix’s analytics-driven approach for helping to find sophisticated threats and reduce false positives is pretty good. We are allowed to fine-tune according to our requirements and our clients' requirements, which does reduce false positives. In the last 24 hours, the total number of policies with triggers was 233. When I started with this product, the false positives were 561. Therefore, the solution has helped by tuning or reducing false positives.”

    Another user noted, “The way that a Securonix is able to put a lot of the contextual information into the events is very helpful. That has reduced the amount of time required for investigating, ‘Hey, this might be something I need to look at,’ and then doing further research. It puts all of those violations in one event or case, so that you can look at different types of violations that all correlate. That has reduced the amount of time for researching some of those cases. It's dependent upon the scenario, but in some cases it could save an hour of going out and doing a bunch of individual searches.”
