The primary use case is for privilege account monitoring. It's monitoring admin accounts for things such as who logged in, where they logged in from, what time they logged in, and from what devices they used Remote desktop, with the privileged accounts.

It's a good tool to do troubleshooting, you can see extensive Info about Kerberos User Auth tickets or Windows Kerberos Machine Auth tickets, which can alert you to say , failing Kerberos Authentications due to incorrect NTP (Network time).

We use SolarWinds as a kind of SIEM solution, so I don't have other additional security needs. Lately, we've been exploring other solutions. We are a Managed Security Services Provider, and we have nine people predominantly working on that solution. We also have team members who work on multiple solutions.

Its use case is to identify and help prevent and block known spyware or ransomware sites. Ransomware sites typically have bad IPs or domain names.

In terms of the version, I have had our clients log in and update the version a few times.
