The troubleshooting capabilities could be improved. It has so many interconnected components. It connects with Active Directory, SharePoint, Exchange, and NetApp. Trying to troubleshoot all of these components can get very complicated — especially with NetApp. The GUI should be more functional. There should be a process for connecting through Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc.

We have Microsoft Office 365. I just saw an article today which says that they're actually getting integrated with Microsoft Office 365, which would be a useful feature. For user-based reports, log on activity, and stuff like that, it doesn't seem to really be present like Log360. That could just be my inexperience with it. I've been dealing with it for only about two and a half months.

I'd like to see automatic updates for this solution. Currently, it's a manual process to update all the keywords. It would be nice to have an automatic download whenever they post a new version. What they do, they do very well. I think they're trying to get a little outside of their core competencies, though. That has the potential for causing other problems.

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.
