Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Security Event Manager (SEM)

This tool is very beneficial for securing our network environment and systems from any defects in our companies. This tool is our main SIEM solution. We are using SEM as a log collection and event generated on our server farms (local and DMZ). And also we are using real-time monitoring for some specific events defined by our security team.
  • Log collection
  • User-friendly and Easy dashboards
  • Queries seeped (according to our size)
  • log data parsing is good. if you upgrade some systems, most likely SEM will recognize it
  • Agent installations are easy but there are some meaningless steps
  • Can be add an advanced reporting process or module
