The most valuable feature of SolarWinds Security Event Manager is the analysis and the knowledge about the incidence that we trace.

Some of the rules are most valuable because you can be notified about various things, such as spyware or things that are going on in the internal network.

SolarWinds' stability is fine. I don't think we've had any software issues.

It has in-depth monitoring capabilities and an easy way for setting up dashboards. I can expand in various areas, or I can reduce areas. It supports different types of breakdowns, filters, and rules.

It is very simple for an out-of-the-box type of product. It doesn't take a lot of time to figure it out, which is unlike some of the solutions that I have looked at. It meets all the aspects.

The graphical user interface is very user-friendly. SolarWinds is a hybrid solution so you can use it across many platforms.

We did previously use a different solution, but SolarWinds is much better. It's easy to interact with SolarWinds. It's easy to operate, easy to configure and is generally easier compared to what we were working with before.

As far as pricing, we always want it to be less expensive or more cost-effective as a consumer, especially when you take into consideration that SolarWinds has got a very broad spectrum of services that can be integrated easily but need to be licensed separately. I think they can come up with a way of putting bundles together which would encourage customers to use a wider array of their products and it could be a better way of increasing sales. People would show a lot more interest in a package deal instead of having to buy the products separately. Bundling might reduce instances where customers look at other solutions for comparisons. For example, I've got some clients that use the Web Help Desk solution, and some users that use the NetFlow Analyzer and SolarWinds. If these solutions could be bundled together in a more cost-effective package when they are purchased together, I'm sure that SolarWinds would realize a lot more sales of peripheral products and increase their total market share. The renewals are currently priced so attractively that they are much cheaper and more cost-effective than when you buy a solution brand new. This helps retain clients over time. My comments on cost mainly refer to the initial purchase of solutions where you are deploying a product and purchasing it for the first-time.

Having the SIEM as a central feeder is a traditional solution architecture.  The question can be asked , do I have the right security platform ?.  As the interconnections to this traditional centralized solution will always need maintaining.  In the case of a Security platform this effort is removed.

A good Security Platform includes SIEM, UEBA, NTA, and SOAR! on a single pane of glass, but I agree all security platforms require constant maintenance to remain viable as a part of the security posture!
