"LEM the SIEM for you"

What do you like best?

Although its a stand alone packaged appliance for VMware or Hyper-v it does a great job delivering an interface both easy to read and very detailed and delivering tremendous content well organized and timely.

What do you dislike?

I wish SolarWinds would integrate it with Orion. However I know there is great difficulty in that process. This would also strain the database significantly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Setup the trial, compare it to anything else on the market. There are probably some limitations if you are a really large enterprise, but over all it will fit almost any business need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

better understanding of where problems really are, security vulnerabilities, and reporting. Compliance is a big win with SolarWinds.

"Decent software but really hard to find any assistance and has gone downhill"

What do you like best?

Five years ago they used to allow a free demo which made the pricing to be easier to understand. On the product end, there is ease of management. Ease of Alerts/alert suppression within SAM and NPM. NTA mapping of whole environment makes a huge difference in scalability. Lots of documentation tools and resources.

What do you dislike?

Initially I was frustrated that their support people have only a basic idea of how the product works but now its hard to even reach assistance and although their website continues to acknowledge their flaws, not many steps have been taken to rectify them. Also a bit pricey.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Switch to PRTG or OpManager. Wait until Solarwinds is back to focusing on growing its customer base with better service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used Solarwinds for database and systems management. Benefits were that documentation, upgrades, and scaling became a lot easier. We did venture towards IT support but that was not as well handled.

"Solar Winds SIEM"

What do you like best?

SolarWinds LEM has not bogged down with the amount of logging data we throw at it. This is comforting because we can rest assure that we can continue to add new nodes to it.

What do you dislike?

While the initial setup was straightforward, customizations to reports can be a little daunting. Luckily SolarWinds has videos available on steps to proceed and their tech support reps are very helpful too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It would be helpful if SolarWinds LEM had Wizards built-in that could assist in adding new types of devices. At times, I've had to go with trial and error until SolarWinds LEM would actually start collecting data from a particular one-off node.

"REVIEW ON SOLARWINDS"

What do you like best?

Extreme modularity and its flexible ability to integrate with other products of the company's.

What do you dislike?

one of the biggest disadvantage with creating topological maps created automatically during the process of discovery. This fails to support a graphical visualization of the ISO/OSI levels of conection between the equipment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Scalability, user intuitive, easy to install and not very high on costs. I would recommend it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solarwinds is very simple and intuitive user interface. For example, the dashboard for each piece of equipment. Scalability was one of the biggest concerns in our business. and solarwinds offers a solution to that. It offers scalability on infrastructure at all levels, starting with the easy installation of additional polling engines to increase the number of managed devices.

"This review is about Solarwinds SIEM."

What do you like best?

I like best about Solarwinds SIEM is that it is very quite flexible. Solarwinds SIEM has the ability to monitor servers. Solarwinds SIEM has the ability to keep you, your group, and your organization informed of specified servers that you choose to monitor within the corporation.

What do you dislike?

At this time, I cannot find any dislikes about Solarwinds SIEM. I am only a user of Solarwinds SIEM and I have not personally implemented the solution, so I cannot provide any information on any hardships that might have been faced when installing the application in our environment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My recommendations to others considering Solarwinds SIEM is what I had previously suggested. I think there are some good features that it is able to offer, but unfortunately, I have not completely and entirely explored the software and application in its full. That being said, what I have used it for though is what I would recommend. I believe that for our usage at my organization with Solarwinds SIEM it has met some of our needs because it has the ability to actively monitor our hardware. However, I am certain that there is a huge part of the software that I have not yet explored as well, so I cannot comment on that.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems that we are solving with Solarwinds SIEM is being able to provide real-time support and proactively monitor crucial and critical processes that might affect a Production system and environment. By being able to monitor the health of these Production servers, Solarwinds SIEM will allow us to quickly identify any potential issue with specified processes.

"It does it's job"

What do you like best?

It's easy to re-assign tickets, and easy to respond to users. The interface is clean and provides means of changing the ticket categories as needed.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike anything that is in the creator's power. It'd be nice if it auto-closed tickets.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a decent product. I don't know what else is out there, but it does the job.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Any computer issues that come up and network issues have tickets put in for repair. It helps keep a record of what was done or who still needs help.

"More tools than a leatherman"

What do you like best?

There are tools for so many different pieces that we are looking to implement. Integration is easy when it is all on the same plateform.

What do you dislike?

Finding what credentials are being used on what systems. For example we have one credential being used on two nodes but we do not know the nodes. It would be really nice to see what nodes the creds are used on quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

None at this time as I am still configuring it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Compliance and Audit requirements that are placed on our institution
