The pricing of the solution is okay. Licensing is paid on a yearly basis.

I did not handle the purchasing, but I believe it cost $15,000. There is an additional support fee, but I don't know how much it is.

The primary use is to deploy sensors. We have two use cases: to predict the anomalous behavior and to predict the normal threshold for our network.

I look at the attack analysis, which shows me which attackers try to exploit my vulnerabilities. I can check the ticket to see if it's blocked or whether it's a false positive. Whatever the case, if it already exists, I will block it. McAfee IPS has a benign engine, so this may not be a target in your environment. If you just prevent attackers from using it, they will try another vulnerability. I have physical routers, but they try to make some novel vulnerabilities. This is not applicable to my environment, so when I see this alert I know it's a false positive not related to my environment. In some cases, I change the action of these alerts or attacks to block. This is what happened in one of the use cases I take advantage of from IPS. I got an alert about some attacks in my environment, regarding the SPAN port and server traffic. I saw it and I detected the source point of this attack.

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!
