Security Event Manager Feature Reviews

8 reviewers had the following to say about Security Event Manager's features:

Jeremy Mayfield

It is simply put a great program. Delivers detail to the nth degree

2017-06-07

Node Health, compliance, and i like to call that Audit protection.

Pros

The ability to create custom monitors on the fly and all the builtin logic behind LEM is simply amazing.

Cons

you have to have it on a separate browser tab, and although the Dashboard is fantastic, not being able to put it in Orion prevents the NOC from building a Dashboard with LEM data on it with other data from other applications in Orion.

LEM for everyone needing SIEM products

2018-02-01

Pros

The log monitoring across the enterprise, compliance, and KPI monitoring.

Cons

I wish they had taken the time to plan out the development in to SolarWinds Orion suite so it was all one product rather than a running appliance in my virtual cluster

This is a great tool that allow for very robust access to all syslog data in your environment.

2018-05-14

This software allowed us to pass an audit requirement for logging and retrieval of data.

Pros

The agents make collecting non-syslog data easy and very manageable.

Cons

Log and Event Manager can be very unwieldy and grow too large very quickly. The search building is not that intuitive and the logic sometimes fails in the queries when building them. If you have to search through a large number of events, it can be quite slow and take 30+ minuted to return results.

Use to analyze logs for PCI and other SSAE 16 compliance.

2018-02-08

Helpful display and insight of your application and systems logs.

Pros

Allow to setup triggers, alerts, and email base on any keyword or filters that you want to setup to filer out the logs.

Cons

Default disk storage on allow support up to 3TB, you will have to find an alternative solution to ship the logs to another disk / location if your logs are over 3TB.

Very good experience. The company did a walk through so we could use it to its fullest.

2018-04-02

Pros

It can alert those who need to be, to USB devices, and any log alert that you could want.

Cons

It has a bit of a learning curve on a few features, but with the walk through they did with us, that wasn't really a problem.

When it works its great, when it does not then it can be problematic.

2018-03-13

Pros

I use this for auditing on systems and all of the data collects on a Syslog Server also from SolarWinds.

Cons

When it stops working it is almost impossible to get it to work again. I have had a handful of systems where the client stopped working and no matter how many times I uninstall and reinstall it does not work again. Also in the selection menu to pick what you want to log it tends to take forever and locks up a lot.

Twackers Ahoy!

2017-09-08

Logs on the fly - which can be essential to my job.

Pros

Ease of use has always been Symantec's forte, but the real winner here is the legendary THWACK community that supports Solarwinds.

Good product that windows already does but does better.

2018-03-20

Pros

Lets your set filters on the log and display certain type of logs based on the filter you have set.

Cons

The selection of what you want is tricky. Requires more research or help. A lot of logs you can view or have sent to emails.
