As with most SIEM solutions — it takes time. It takes time and you have to evolve the system and configure it to meet your needs. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of eight.

We use the public cloud deployment model. The solution is complex, but with the right training, you can really get a lot out of the product. It's very powerful. You're just limited by the knowledge. If you don't have it, you won't get as much out of the solution. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. The price is high if you aren't using the full potential of the product, so if you are considering implementing it, keep that in mind.
