"Complete Tool for basic and for professional setup"

What do you like best?

I used this tool for almost 2 years now. It's great for both, for the lazy sysadmin that want to do some clicks and have a monitor tools working and for the one (like me) that want to monitor almost everything even things that are not normal or out of any standard list. Great tool for small/medium ar super big windows and ad networks . Recently they added a feature (Its a separate license but great tool) called ADMonitor, its a great tool specially for big networks to keep you inform on changes at your active directory structure, like new computers added, user changed passwords, user deleted, expired password and so on. Definitely its an all in one tool, a must, to have control over a big network. It even helped us to do a report asked by the president, about the inventory of computers, ram, processor, etc. that later was used to upgrade old computers in the infrastructure

What do you dislike?

I would love a little more support for monitoring linux severs, despite it already has a lot of monitoring for common distros like pfsense

Recommendations to others considering the product

Despite What I already stated about eventsentry, support quality its just awesome. They take care of the costumer in an incredible way, and not just before buying the license but after that too. Helping in all the way to implementation and correct use of advantage and features

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

"Amazing product"

What do you like best?

Creating an event log is easy and not that time-consuming for the servers. The monitoring feature of this product for the hardware is the savior as one could know the hardware behavior, which helps when reported immediately rather than spend time on hardware. I work from home most of the time so the log manager comes handy when have to supervise the activity. Need not to say that the customer support is immediate and have problem fixing ratio of 99%.

What do you dislike?

The requirement of a central repository is very much there, as when compared to a more than one site management, it does prove up to its potential, lack of timely updates, though it could be done via configuring settings this should be automated. For a beginner making API will be very complicated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The log creation is large when going through older logs for security checks, so it will be larger than expected.

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

My work from home has challenges to get regular updates and store data somewhere about the production, then this EventSentry has solved that problems for me, Sharing the data among the team is a lot easier. Easy has it become to keep a log and the files which are being accessed by other people.

What Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"SIEM, Event log management made easier."

What do you like best?

The feature which i liked the most is the Real Time Event Log monitoring.It gives us enormous information options to achieve any goal. log file allows us to both consolidate text from log files in the eventsentry data base and also receive alerts when certain text patterns are found in a log file. Another advantage is that it supports delimited and also non-delimited log files. Now I can even configure eventsentry to log an alert with a customisable severity to the application event log when a monitored log file contains one or more settings of interest.

What do you dislike?

Since, Eventsentry is very useful and productive I personally seemed to have found no problems with it. It is a very useful prouct. However, there are a few drawbacks. One of the drawback is when our device loose internet connection or loose network connectivity, it cannot be monitored while being unreachable. Other than this, I found the product to be very useful and i would look forward to use it in future with a little minor updates obviously.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For those people who are looking out for event log management, SIEM, log monitoring products, this product is very effective and productive. I personally suggest you people to use this as this product is also very convinient for work an because of its easy usable interface.

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

We usually match events by the basic properties like event source and by inserting strings inside event messages. I aslo perform numerical comparisons and interpret text inside events as user name or file names. Above mentioned are some of the many benefits that I have realized while using the product.

"Auditing capabilities are top notch"

What do you like best?

I like the way in which i am able to modify the storefront design tools and also the internal layout and for advanced content management my bet is strongly on this for the innate quality and great level of templates and themes and they are the best ,customer support is always on point and precise and security level precision is top notch

What do you dislike?

If you are looking for multi-site management and SEO tools then its a disaster as it does not give regular updates and i have to customize the settings and also the API calls are quite complicated,they should have a central repository for it to make it much more easier

Recommendations to others considering the product

Optimized setting with asset management is the key

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

Fast and secure,helps in day-day usage and also the self-setup customizations and cross channel fulfillment are best and i would prefer them anyday

"better way to maintain the system "

What do you like best?

it is easy to create a smart event log for the windows server, it comes in handy if your are working home or maintianing a NAS or server for which you need a log manager to supervise the activity and look after any suspicious activity. In terms of log managemnt it does a very great job of mainting all the events and log on the server with leaving a minute activity. It also has the feature to monitor the hardware so it could come to know any uncertanity in the hardware behaviour and could report imideiately, so reducing the effect of spending on the hardware.

What do you dislike?

sometime it is tough to get the web UI have to restart/reload the process to get the data showed up.

to create sub category for the monitoring event to filter becomes bit tricky for the people getting started with.

Recommendations to others considering the product

maintain gthe log is bit large than expected, and to going through the log for the filtering tires the entire system especially when we go through old logs for the security checks and peopel access

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

it become easy to monitor my home network in which i used to keep my produciton information and data whcih are more sensible and has to be shared among people in the nwtwork, EventSentry is useful to monitor the activity and files tat people accesing and who accesing which files and gettig the confidential files saver from being accesed without any information
