Likelihood to Recommend
If you want to analyze the full path focusing on the signatures it’s the best product in the market. If you want to test phishing, data exfiltration/DLP, DNS I don’t recommend Picus. Scenario based attacks also lacking. However Picus support is awesome and I like the development team. When we open a case, they’ll always return with the right answer

If you have Sonicwall firewalls, and want to store logs and generate custom reports, then this additional investment is worthy. If you only want to have storage for your logs, then I won't recommend this. You can opt for a Syslog tool or a SIEM platform for analyzing the same and storing logs.

There must be an option to get reports no the basis of complete user activity, or user timeline They could have bundled or included management along with reporting Pricing considering only collecting of logs and generating reports only from Sonicwall firewalls, I feel is high.

We use other vendors
etc. All of them have their advantages and disadvantages. Please take a look at TrustRadius reviews of each product. I don’t want to go head to head for each product in this
review. I select Picus because it's local startup company in our region. I like their support and engineering team. Support is marvelous. Product is giving what we expected from the product. Price is adequate. Reporting and dashboard is superb.
