Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is a good product. It provides network visibility, which is important. Gigamon can bring some optimizations to my network. It is helpful for security inspection, and it makes my firewall work fast because my firewall doesn't have to do the inspection of the SSL connections, for example.""It has high stability.""The most valuable feature is NetFlow.""The most valuable feature for improving network visibility with Gigamon is the packet filtering capability.""The solution is straightforward to set up.""The tool's most valuable feature is the encryption feature. From a security perspective, the solution hasn't significantly strengthened our security posture. However, it has greatly improved performance by streamlining encryption processes and avoiding encryption at multiple layers. This has also simplified troubleshooting, as we can whitelist certain processes.""It offers straightforward integration."

"The valuable features include packet analysis, packet capture, and [that] it's easy to use.""It is an easy-to-scale platform.""It is a scalable product.""Network faults are easily and quickly identified through dashboards and drill down.""The support is good.""The most valuable feature of this solution is being able to drill down into any kind of troubles that are reported to us, by use of identifiers.""It is a scalable solution.""The solution helps us get to root cause quickly by using the Media Monitor to help identify QoS mismatches for voice calls on the network."

More NETSCOUT nGeniusONE Pros →

"The Gigamon Deep Observability Pipeline should have a feature showing the traffic flow within its platform. Currently, customers have to use separate tools for monitoring, which is inconvenient. If it had its visibility feature, it would make monitoring easier and more complete without needing extra tools.""Its filtering feature needs improvement.""They should increase the solution's cluster capacity.""It only inspects a specific kind of traffic. There should be different kinds of use cases.""The security should be improved.""In terms of improvement, while the initial setup is not overly complicated, we did encounter a few issues.""The graphical user interface could be improved."

"Another thing that would help out is if they packaged the NetFlow monitor into nGeniusONE. Their NetFlow monitor works with nGeniusONE where you can actually get the netflow of pretty much anything you hook it up to. But it's a separate box that you have to buy. If there was a way that could package that into nGeniusONE, it would be a complete package straight out of the box.""Trying to set up dashboards is hard to figure out at times, if you don't do it every day. It's not really intuitive to set them all up... If there were a wizard to take us through, step-by-step, creating dashboards and the like, that would be really helpful.""The stability is only fair. It goes down a lot.""Initial setup was complex.""There are so many features that it makes it hard to know it all. You end up paying for things that you don't use and probably don't even need. It might be better if Netscout came up with a modular way to pay for what you're going to use and not pay for all of this "white elephant" without being able to take advantage of all of it.""I would love to have them reassemble fragmented packets. That would be a very big plus in my book.""There was a point in GTP where we were creating services on nodes and after that we wanted to have services on APN. We can't have both... There are some limitations with these types of things. When we would like to use a feature, we have to remove another one.""NETSCOUT nGeniusONE can improve the detection of what area of the infrastructure could be having an issue, such as an application, server, or network. It needs to find evidence of a fault."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The solution is highly-priced."
  • "The solution's price is reasonable."
  • "I would rate the solution as expensive, around an eight or nine out of ten. There are other competitive solutions available."

  • "If you are able and you are willing to use everything that Netscout provides to you, it's probably a relatively fair price. The problem is that it's such a large and such a complex tool that I'm not sure that many companies would be able to use it entirely, the way it's expected to be used."
  • "Like any company, we always want better pricing. The pricing is okay, but it's not a cheap solution. When you want to deploy it across an enterprise as large as ours, you go into seven figures. It's not a cheap solution to get out there."
  • "Their pricing is very competitive with other solutions... But what I like about NETSCOUT's licensing is that it's shared across all their platforms. They don't create a new licensing scheme for every one of their products. So for nGeniusONE, you buy a certain license level, and it works on all of their products."
  • "Cost is probably the biggest drawback. Compared to some of the newer vendors that have popped up in the space, it's definitely more on the expensive side... [But] it's been able to keep its value, even in the face of the cheaper competition."
  • "The biggest problem we have with this product is the expense."
  • "It can be expensive, but if you have a good configuration, based on what you are looking for, it's okay, it's manageable."
  • "It is very expensive, but it's well worth the money."
  • "It is a little overall pricey and expensive, but you get what you pay for."

    Top Answer:We mostly use it for network visibility, security monitoring, and performance monitoring.
    Top Answer:I would say if it’s an ISP that will build a scrubbing center, Netscout/Arbor is a good solution. In all other solutions, Imperva is a great choice.
    Top Answer:The most valuable feature is that it is in line with the traffic. It already captures the raw traffic itself and then filters it, giving us the correct image. Some other companies may just extract… more »
