HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM)

This software is suited for a smaller organization with a small datacenter that uses mainly HP hardware. Once the environment gets larger it would pay to move to some of their paid for products

ManageEngine ADAudit Plus

The number one use we have for it is in our periodic security reviews - we routinely check the logs for any anomalies, and ADAudit Plus is the tool of choice for me and for my team to get the ball rolling. We can check the dashboards for any out of the ordinary events, dig deeper into the actual log behaviors of the machines and users we manage, and then report the findings into CSV or XLSX format for further analysis or presentation.

Cons

HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM)

  • I think some of the areas that HP Systems Insight Manager can improve is non HP hardware.
  • This software also sometimes struggles handling larger environments.
  • This software also has issues managing environments that aren't set up perfectly.

ManageEngine ADAudit Plus

For basic functions it's very easy to set up and use. However, for more advanced functions it takes a lot of time to figure out its quirks

Alternatives Considered

HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM)

Some of the other products I use for system management are HP SiteScope and SolarWinds Orion NPM and APM. SiteScope is another good HP product but it isn't very cost effective to use for general system management. It's good for performing complex alerting and monitoring. SolarWinds makes a great product but it is better geared for gathering statistics and performance data real-time and historically. Again the cost of this product makes it ineffective for general system monitoring.

ManageEngine ADAudit Plus

We use ADAudit Plus along with our Wazuh based SIEM, having removed AlienVault. The two together work in complementary ways, allowing us to not only audit, but also vet and analyze the results of our investigations and continuous quality improvement efforts. Logaholic was looked at as an alternative, but ultimately we felt it was too website-focused for our mostly-Windows server shop.

Return on Investment

HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM)

  • Since this software is free if you buy HP hardware the cost is nothing which is nice for cash strapped businesses.
  • This software has a somewhat difficult time handling large environments where systems are not configured perfectly for this software.
  • I would always recommend having multiples of this software installed for redundancy because generally unless it and the environment is properly configured it can require maintenance.
Alex Gouskos | TrustRadius Reviewer

ManageEngine ADAudit Plus

  • It has helped with Audit time and accuracy
  • More time to do other work
  • Peace of mind knowing you are compliant
