The application is used by the IT Department and is implemented enterprise wide. We use the product as a part of our defense in depth approach to cyber-security.

  • The administrative interface works as expected and it is easy to set up rules within the tool.

The tools does not allow easy search capabilities and auditing is a little more difficult. The tool is less expensive, but the expertise surrounding the installation and management of the tool is lacking. The reporting feature is less robust and the ability to fully understand user permissions is less sophisticated.

This tool is well suited to address all of our auditing and reporting for production data. The alerting feature is outstanding and the search feature is well executed. The interface is slightly outdated and the ability to search through archive data is cumbersome. The reporting options are excellent but the report display is not designed in a way that makes it difficult to interpret the results.
