SolarWinds Threat Monitor has been utilized by numerous users to protect their networks against a wide range of threats, including spam, hacking, cyber threats, and viruses. This unique SIEM tool has proven to be highly effective in detecting, responding, and reporting on managed networks. Customers have praised the product for its ease of deployment and use when onboarding new users to the threat monitoring system. Moreover, Managed Service Providers have found great value in leveraging SolarWinds Threat Monitor to support multiple clients by identifying vulnerabilities and providing tailored security solutions.

SolarWinds Threat Monitor excels in monitoring log events and providing comprehensive security breakdowns to clients. By doing so, it helps them understand where vulnerabilities exist within their network infrastructure and suggests effective ways to address these vulnerabilities. Another advantage of this solution is that it is a standalone cloud-based product with zero footprint on users' infrastructure. This feature has empowered users to deploy the software in AWS, covering their entire environment and gaining crucial visibility into network traffic, logs, and compliance.

In addition to protecting against cyber threats, SolarWinds Threat Monitor also proves invaluable in monitoring various network issues such as node outages and network problems. Users rely on the product to oversee critical components of their infrastructure - servers, workstations, switches, and routers - ensuring constant availability. The system promptly notifies users about any outages or network problems, offering visibility at the communications level. This increased visibility has provided users with great insight into their network's performance and continues to be instrumental in monitoring critical components effectively.

We are currently using Solar Winds to monitor the critical components of our infrastructure, those critical components. In our use case, the system notifies us by showing outages at the communications level as well as network problems that are occurring at a given time. We continue to use this software today as it has given us great visibility.
  • Network monitoring.
  • Alert by mail of the events that occur.
  • Visually it is very friendly.
  • It is easy to configure.
  • They can lower the prices of the licenses a little.
  • If we can set up a cloud console for monitoring that would be great.
  • They should improve the discovery system as it adds a lot of things that I don't want to monitor.
Due to the high price that SolarWinds has, I do not recommend it for small companies. And if I recommend SolarWinds in large companies with complex infrastructures where constant monitoring and review of the network is required, this system is very complete and helps everyone in the technology team, both network administrators, database administrators, Security Administrators, and Server Administrators are all very happy with this system.

We've used SolarWinds for a few years to protect our district against threats from spam, hacking, cyberthreats, and viruses.
  • monitoring
  • notification systems
  • virus attack monitoring
  • ability to shut down systems when it senses an imminent threat
  • lower pricing or bundling of prices
  • nonprofit/governmental discounting
We had a threat of a cyberattack over a weekend. Our staff was immediately notified and SolarWinds shut down many parts of our financial and communication systems. Our staff worked with the team from SolarWinds and found them to be clear, thorough, and responsive. The threat was most certainly valid and the safeguards advertised by SolarWinds were delivered. It is a great service for places of business that are susceptible, such as governmental entities.

SolarWinds Threat Monitor is a unique SIEM tool that can help us detect, respond, and report to our managed networks. We are required to implement one powerful SIEM tool into our networks that can operate from single windows and is easy to deploy and help ensure onboarding and adding new users to the threat monitoring system.
  • Threat Monitoring in single window
  • Simple and Scalable
  • Advanced monitoring, analysis and investigation of threats
  • Deployment with existing SIEM Tools
  • Technical Support
  • NIDS and Agent for different users
SolarWinds Threat Monitor is a SIEM tool that can help you only in Manage Networks. Also in managing networks, you should have complete visibility of your organization's infrastructure before implementation of SolarWinds Threat Monitor. You should not implement the SIEM tools if you don't have managed networks and infrastructure visibility.

Monitoring Threats

I use SolarWinds Threat Monitor to monitor a variety of issues that could arise. The main use of Solar Winds Monitor is to monitor nodes that go down for a variety of reasons. Critical servers that need to be constantly on. Several workstations, Switches, and routers. Our monitor scope consists of several sites between 1 and 60 miles apart.
  • Alerting
  • GUI
  • Simplicity
  • More rapid Alerting
  • Integration with other cyber security software.
  • More informed customer support
We monitor several routers, switches, and servers that are critical to our system. These systems collect data that is valuable to keep us going. Solar Winds alerts us when one of these systems goes down instead of us trying to blindly figure out what the problem could be. As soon as a system goes offline we get an alert telling us exactly what system is down.

We use MSP Threat Monitor for multiple clients that we support in an MSP capacity. We use it to find any vulnerabilities. Find some possible security solutions. Monitor log events, and provide security breakdowns to the client. We try to show where they are vulnerable and how we can address those issues going forward.
  • Nice reporting features.
  • Able to brand it for your company.
  • Easy to use interface.
  • Steep learning curve.
  • Usually takes a bit to get the scans to run easily in a new environment.
  • Could have more reporting options.
We use this among all our clients. When we first start working with a new client we run scans on their networks and then try to show them where they are vulnerable, and where they should shore up their security. Then we use those reports to road map how we want to fix their infrastructure.

Threat Monitor is a standalone product from Solarwinds, that doesn't integrate into the main core installation, it is cloud based which means zero footprint on your infrastructure. We currently have threat monitor deployed in AWS, and it's covering our whole environment. It gives us visibility into network traffic, logs and compliance.
  • Cloud based so no footprint
  • Log collection and correlation allowing analysis
  • Log archiving
  • Very scalable with a low cost
  • Its a fairly new product and its lacking some of the features of more established vendors
  • Log searching can be a little chaotic at times
  • Some limitations - which I believe are being addressed in the next release
If you dont have the hardware to support a SIEM solution, then Threat Monitor is deal, as its cloud based. Its suitable for medium to large environments and scales very well, with a fair cost.
