Centreon
It is a good product that is robust. They have a free version that makes the value good. If it cost money then the install and plugins would need polishing. But overall it is a good product that does what it says it does. But definitely not for beginners you do need some knowledge to set it up and get it running

Scout does a fantastic job with all of the modules and it is easy to navigate. A nice addition was the cyber security module. I can not think of a less appropriate scenario.

  • I specifically use the risk assessment module and do risk assessments on any new product we introduce into our network or any company that we are thinking about taking on as a client.
  • I also use the vendor management module for any due diligence that comes up with a new company or a company that we may use once and then not use again.

  • There are not many areas that I would change in Scout. If I were to change anything it would be just to add a description of when I would use a report, such as managers, board of directors, or regulators.

Centreon does a good job against these products. Of courseCentreon can be free and that is what we used. So it is not quite the same the other products are more polished and support is readily available. But Centreon is still good and if you have some knowledge can work just as well

I've already explained why this product beats Excel hands down in time and money. I also love the way it sends you an email when you forget any due diligence or testing that needs to be done.

  • I like that everything is in one place. We used to use Excel spreadsheets and it was very hard to keep everything in one place or to find something specific. Now it is very easy finding what you're looking for with this all in one solution.
  • This solution pays for itself with the time saved from not looking at spreadsheets.
  • When the regulators come and they ask for a assessment I can get it for them in very short order.
