          1.       What was life like before using SolarWinds? It was alot busier search logs files on each server looking for a needle in a hay stack for sure, now its just a few clicks and I have all the info I need.
          2.        Which SolarWinds product(s) saved your bacon? My account was getting locked out weekly for some odd reason I knew it was when I wasn't signed in, Here is was a rouge WMI scan from our sysaid server found it and resolved it. with out it I would of been annoyed much longer
          3.        Did you consider other options, and why did you choose SolarWinds? no unfortunately I don't make decisions on what to buy with working for a city thats done in another part of the department however very happy with his purchase
          4.       How has life been since you've rolled out SolarWinds in your environment? easier to see who is logging in and when I love it.

            Life was a pain trying to manage the other SIEMS before I learned about LEM (Logging and Event Manager)!!! in Spread the Word

            I have used a number of SIEMs including Logrhythm, AlienVault, Splunk, and IBM QRadar.  I even recently heard of a major company trying to manage  their security logs via KIWI Syslog, which is another great product I use, but it has no rules, correlation, Threat Intel or Context to put the content in to create actionable reports and Intelligene to act on as an Incident Responder or anyone on the InfoSec team.  LEM makes it possible not have to hire an army of InfoSec Analysts, which were can they be found, and it is so easy to setup and is very intuitive.  It also does not require constant fiddling, tuning, open tickets and the joy that is support at most IT companies.  If those in the "Magic Quadrant" for Gartner!  You are doing yourself and your company if you don't have a SIEM and try a free download of LEM while you are considering your options.

             

            Not only has it saved my bacon but saved my budget tremendously and allowed me to afford bacon.  It really is awesome.

             

            I considered IBM QRadar, Alien Vault, and SPLUNK but they are not really SMB friendly, I didn't say that out loud did i?  I mean they are not geared towards SMBs unless you consider Wally World or other organizations with 10 of thousands of devices..

             

            Life has been great since I rolled out SolarWinds i my Environment.
