A good product that keeps getting better every software release

The product started from a very specific and limited view. The product improvements make it useful from not only a pure security role but also a compliance role.

Pros

The product started out giving me a very good look at firewall information and has continued to expand that information more and more. In the case of my installation, we use the information from the firewall sent via SNMP, so the additional information allows for us to look and search for threats in another pane of glass.

Cons

I have found removing instances can be difficult at times.

Review on FA of ME

Pros

Strong Dashboard, corrective measures taken to report the logs which really help us in operational part as well as to maintain the security posture from business perspective.

Cons

Some of the alerts are false positives, ME must installed the global signatures which is popular used to detect the sophisticated attack.
Sometimes we need to re-initialize the services from the installed server to restart the operation.

User Experiance

The overall experience is good. It logs all the user's traffic ( Dates, Times, and where ). If it is just an IP then you have the ability to do a DNS lookup. The reports are very graphical and nice to look at. These can also be set to automatically run and emailed to you which is great.
Once the application is setup it is very much an application that just runs in the background logging activity and then emails you the logs so, you don't have to be in the application that much.

The updating of the application is also very easy to do. They have written this well so that the end-user is able to run the update and let it just do its things.

Would I move to another application to do the same thing? At this moment in time no... It is a good price compared to other vendors and it does the job very well. If you have to keep fixing or need to keep an eye on a monitoring application then the overall cost is then too big. The idea of these monitoring tools is to set them up get the logs all set up then just leave them to do the job so you can just get on with other items that do require your time. In a business Time is Money that includes engineer time.

Pros

The application interface is very nice and plenty of graphs to look at. You can also create your own reports to then show just the areas you want to see. The application gathers a lot of information more than you may ever need to see in one report so, being able to break these down into manageable reports makes it better to understand what you are looking at and not just a lot of noise.

Cons

The application can be a bit complicated to start with when setting it up. It will expect you to have all the required information about your firewalls such as SNMP, Admin Firewall access and also IP addresses.
Getting to know where everything is within the application can be a bit frustrating too as there are so many areas the application checks and logs.
Once you know your way around the application then it is fine and works well.
