"Very powerful, but clunky GUI"

What do you like best?

This product is able to scan for multiple compliance's, and make sure you are within compliance. This is great if you need to meet specific compliance's. It also is able to monitor folders for access attempts, and report on NTFS and share permissions.

What do you dislike?

The GUI is incredibly clunky, and a pain to navigate. I also don't like having to have it installed by their technical team. They connect via Join.Me and set everything up, and they HAVE to use an administrator account.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have the money for this, then it is a great product. They won't give you cost up front. It was going to end up costing us $40,000 to implement this in our environment. There are much better uses for that money. If I recall, each user came out to $100, plus, you also have to pay per server you wish to monitor.

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

Compliance and file monitoring. It is able to report on ransomware attacks as they are happening as well.
