Being able to build and modify dashboards on the fly with Activeboards streamlines my analyst time because my analysts aren't doing it across spreadsheets or five different tools to try to build a timeline out themselves. They can just ingest it all, build a timeline out across all the logging, and all the different information sources in one dashboard. So, it's a huge time saver. It also has the accuracy of being able to look at all those data sources in one view. The log analysis, which would take 40 hours, we can probably get through it in about five to eight hours using Devo.
The user interface is really modern. As an end-user, there are a lot of possibilities to tailor the platform to your needs, and that can be done without needing much support from Devo. It's really flexible and modular. The UI is very clean.
Hi community members,
We know it's important to conduct a trial and/or proof of concept as part of the buying process.
Do you have any advice for our community about the best way to conduct a trial or PoC? How do you conduct a trial effectively?
Are there any mistakes to avoid?
Stick with the tried and true SIEM/Log Management Vendor that offers a free, online download and trial, easy to install and operate piece of software with proper documentation. A good example of that can be found here: https://www.snaresolutions.com/try-snare-free-for-45-days/
Mark is correct but there are things to look for. Do you have a set of requirements? Not all log managers collect the information, not all log managers are easy to navigate, and not all log managers provide the reports your are looking for. Check to see how much data it collects so you can plan storage. Does the log manager compress the data or does it dependent on a third party tool? Do you know what you are collecting, and why? Are the logs used for security, sox audits or something else? My advise, before testing, is to gather and review you're requirements and test against that. There are lots of free trials. In fact if there isn't one on the web, contact the vendor and they'll give you something to try out for 30 days.
