    A unified security and risk analytics solution with a useful reporting feature, but it could be more stable
    Pros and Cons
    • "The reporting feature was the key differentiator. I also liked the ability to create dynamic rules in the environment."
    • "It could be more stable."

    What is our primary use case?

    We carried out proof of concepts with certain projects for our customers. We deployed it, improved it, and so on.

    What is most valuable?

    The reporting feature was the key differentiator. I also liked the ability to create dynamic rules in the environment. This is like an icebreaker for any customer to look forward to because once you do this kind of proof of concept or a demo in their environment, you can show what it looks like and enrich the visibility.

    What needs improvement?

    It could be more stable. 

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    It could be more stable. Sometimes when working in multiple customer environments, there were some issues with features. There were some stability concerns that used to pop up.

    Find out what your peers are saying about Gurucul, Securonix Solutions, Exabeam and others in User Behavior Analytics - UEBA. Updated: September 2022.
    634,590 professionals have used our research since 2012.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Scalability is good. You can say for on-prem analytics, building the data lake, and a number of resources that have been used in an on-prem kind of deployment, it is tremendous. If you are moving away from an on-prem, you will get the scale on-demand on a cloud. 

    But investment with the customer and support in terms of the hardware is comparatively a bit higher. But you always need to come back to the ROI, how it would be beneficial, what scale you're looking forward to, and so on. It's probably better to look at a hybrid environment if you're considering the higher side.

    How are customer service and support?

    Technical support was fair. I will not say that it was too great or too bad. But they know their work, and they were able to get all the things done.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is complex. In fact, to get it deployed, you need their people to get it installed because there are a lot of scripts, there are a lot of customizations that need to be done manually on the device. In terms of user-friendliness, it's cool to manage the solution. But typically, if there are some integrations and things like that, you need the vendor's help.

    What about the implementation team?

    We used the vendor's help.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    The price is fair. In fact, I believe it was on the cheaper side when compared to the competition. But the customer needs to look at the pricing in terms of the entire solution. The hardware used to supersede the subscription services. Bundling the solutions typically for on-prem guys, along with the hardware, used to cost a lot. But for customers who are large and already had the hardware in place, this wasn't a problem. 

    What other advice do I have?

    From my experience Gurucul, I would say that it is fairly good. 

    On a scale from one to ten, I would give Gurucul a seven.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    On-premises

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    The price of Gurucul is competitive.
