That alerting and reporting service is great.

On the Varonis side, technical support is phenomenal. Their ability to explain is very good, and they seem to be very knowledgeable. When I get an alert that doesn't quite make sense, they dive in there and kind of take me through it. That's very useful and very good. There are some false alerts, but it is better to have a false alert than no alert at all.

The analytics would have to be our most valuable feature.

The 24/7 support is the most valuable feature. They have been able to answer support questions pretty quickly.

I'm relatively new to this organization. I'm just comparing and contrasting ManageEngine Log360 and Varonis DatAlert. Both tools are rather new to me. I know that they're kind of looking at both. I don't know if they're going to want to maintain both. There seem to be some use cases to retain both. I think they've had DatAlert a little bit longer than Log360. I've done a couple of webinars, but I haven't had a whole lot of time to just kind of dive into both of those. I'm still in the developmental stage, and I am evaluating both of these solutions. I am trying to compare apples to apples as to what they do and where their strengths and weaknesses lie to make sure that if we got rid of one, we weren't going to be missing out on something.

This solution informs us about who's moving data, whether accidentally or on purpose. If a mass folder deletion occurs or mass copying, master lateral movements, things like that, then this solution sends us an alert. We set up the alerts and this solution informs us of who's moving the data. Sometimes people drag and drop by mistake; this can move thousands of files and folders — depending on their size. If this happens, the system alerts us so we can correct it before it affects our users. We also use it for monetary purposes. We use this solution to monitor all of our 16,000 users. Regarding the admin solution, we have around 10 users.

There are options. You could do a subscription, where you pay yearly, or you could purchase it outright. The licensing cost is based on the number of users on the system that you are monitoring. At the end of each year, this is adjusted, depending on whether your company grows or shrinks.

Licensing is on an annual basis. Maintenance and renewal fees are separate. Varonis Datalert is quite expensive.
