"Tanium's most valuable feature is its instant discovery aspect."
"The interrogation piece was the most valuable feature because it was very detailed."
"I like the fact that you can create patching campaigns depending on the area of your network that you want to address first. I like the ability it has to make several campaigns that work in parallel."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the consolidation of all historical data on device endpoints, security drivers, firmware, and Software version gaps."
"I would say Tanium is the best tool for vulnerability management."
"I like the tool's incident response and security patching."
"The solution is scalable and helps to understand how infrastructure works. It helps to improve the health of the organization."
"Tanium's most valuable features are patch management, inventory, and distribution software."
"The integration capabilities and APIs are the best part."
"There is less computing power needed for scaling."
"The overall functionality of Zabbix is very good. The monitoring of bank applications that Zabbix provides is great. The information is displayed on a dashboard that is easily viewed."
"The product is very stable."
"I really enjoy network traffic triggers that allow us to check traffic threshold from ISP."
"SNMP monitoring, source discovery, and alert triggering are most valuable."
"The solution is quite mature and very stable."
"It meets my organizational needs. It's pretty easy to use."
"The main issues are the network connection because different customers have issues with their networks. It's difficult implementing this type of solution because the network is the main feature in the architecture for these types of solutions. Tanium could improve by creating some network optimization."
"We had some issues with the solution's OS upgrade."
"The solution needs to improve the reporting and tracking capabilities."
"The most painful thing is the interface. It's a bit unclear sometimes."
"It is not really additional functions, or the features that are needed, rather the complexity would be reduced based on the number of modules required to put together a comprehensive operational security and risk compliance model."
"Any movement into a SaaS solution has challenges since the processes and data flows are not well defined. Hence, you need to build it at the same time."
"Tanium's limitations should be improved because although it is a great tool, it is limited to only a few classes during a session."
"Tanium’s scalability could be improved."
"There are some features of Zabbix that are not good for reporting. The DX Spectrum solution has better reporting."
"Zabbix could improve when it comes to large-scale use cases. Additionally, the inventory could be better when connecting to other solutions, such as ServiceNow. There show to be better integration with other platforms and storage."
"An area for improvement would be the ease of doing aggregation from the value or different devices."
"The reports are not great and should be improved."
"The System Center Operations Manager can be improved."
"As far as improvements, sometimes I get a bit frustrated when I move from a previous version to a new one because some configuration has changed—I need to investigate the documentation to deal with some configuration. But it doesn't take much time, so it's okay."
"I would like for this solution to be more cloud-friendly."
"The integration of the product is not so easy, especially when it comes to the application database."
