It's fully scalable. There is no limit. Of course, the license limits per day the number of terabytes. In my opinion, it's very flexible.

In my opinion, the solution's most valuable feature is its capacity to monitor network traffic, logs from devices within the network, and network captures. This capability extends beyond logs to include full network capturing.

The most valuable feature is that we can create our own connectors for any application, and NetWitness provides the training and tools to do it.

I can have enterprise security, email security, next generation firewall security log, HIDS and NIDS logs, etc. all on the same dashboard. It makes it easy to pinpoint or correlate our server to this. I can find out if there is lateral movement. This is the biggest advantage of this solution.

The most valuable feature is the ability to write rules and triggers for network communication, and then being able to investigate based on that.

Log aggregation is an issue with this solution because there are a huge number of alerts in a single instance.

They should implement algorithms to digest that data and produce additional, more advanced reporting, alerting and support of internal security teams.

I believe that integrating the solution with other products such as Oracle would be beneficial.

Sometimes, it gives me static when integrating Windows-based systems. It should produce a precise log of sorts as to where the problem is. For example, a few days ago because of the McAfee application firewall, I couldn't get access to the particular Windows machine. So, my team and I had to figure out by ourselves that there was a virus responsible for the obstacle. This solution should trigger a meaningful log or message indicating the reason the user or implementer can't get into the machine.

The product's licensing models are complex to understand. This particular area needs improvement.

The system looks like it is a mix of a bunch of different systems, and nothing looked like it was quite together.
