Neustar Webmetrics

If you need to gauge whether your site is up or down, then Neustar will give you exactly what you are looking for. However, if you need more granularity for specific application or sub-systems and their functionality, this product will need to be subsidized with other applications that provide more data or information on how individual components or systems are working.

Tanium

Tanium is suitable in any sort of organization where you want to look at your machines and what kind of applications they are running. One good example is removing an application from where it is not supposed to be in the organization. By using Tanium trace with basic English, first you can search all the machines which have that application, and second you can create a package either through a power shell command or CLI command and remove that application from all the machines at once.This is really saves lot of manual work, time, and also helps in balancing assets across an organization.

Pros

Neustar Webmetrics

  • It allows access to a history of checks, how much time they took, and if any errors were detected.
  • It can alert several people, or many in a group, for information related to the application availability.
  • When drilling down into the check, the logs can pinpoint the exact time and code events and how long each step took to respond.

Tanium

  • Tanium helps in identifying a list of infected machines with any vulnerabilities. For example if we create a package with list of Windows vulnerabilities, it will push the package through its sensors to all the nodes, and trace out the infected machines in our organization.
  • It helps in adding IOC's which helps us in track down the hashes or shah files existing with that IOC 's machines.
  • The most impressive thing about Tanium is that it can quarantine the machine of our choice without connecting to the network, which really helps a lot of times in containment of any infected machines.

Cons

Neustar Webmetrics

  • The interface can be buggy.
  • We have experienced false positives of a system outage that was not accurate.
  • It's not a true measure of system performance or uptime, but simply judges up or down from a holistic view.

Tanium

  • One issue is its ring topology, as the data is stored in central hubs and pushed through its peer nodes. If the central hub fails, then the associated node will also result in failure.
  • Another problem is that all Tanium management is on premises requiring the customer to maintain it. If we want ask any help from Tanium support we always get a response like "you are maintaining it yourselves and it's your responsibility.
  • The Tanium User Interface could be improved a bit as, although the tool is rich in performance, a more impressive UI might really attract new customers.

Alternatives Considered

Neustar Webmetrics

To be honest, I am not certain why this product was initially chosen over other products. It was being used when I started working at a new job. I was trained on its use and focused on tracking issues when an alert was given. There are many products that can be used for monitoring site uptime. Neustar definitely has its uses for monitoring if a site is up or down, but its lack of granularity can turn some away.

Tanium

Tanium is best for identifying infrastructure infections, and it is easy use where a user who has basic English knowledge can search his queries very easily. Tanium's exceptional feature is quarantining the machine from network, and this is a really impressive feature which should gain them new customers. Tanium helps in removing the suspicious application quickly, which saves time and manual work.

Return on Investment

Neustar Webmetrics

  • Our company at one time gauged overall system uptime using Neustar WebMetrics to provide this data
  • Due to the limitations with the applications ability to show system functionality and uptime we have begun using other methods for determining system uptime for our customers.
  • The interface can be a bit tricky to understand during first use. There is somewhat of a learning curve.

Tanium

  • Adding the IOC 's tracing infected machines, and removing unwanted applications quickly.
  • Quarantine the infected machine from the network in order to prevent it from causing damage or infecting other machines.
  • The user interface could be improved.
