SolarWinds Log & Event Manager (LEM)

Full featured SIEM for reasonable price

Fast response to help requests and an excellent overall product offering to manage IT

SolarWinds Log & Event Manager (LEM)

Easy to implement, but hard for a novice to make work effectively.

Deployment and setup was very simple - the product is delivered as a virtual appliance and was easy to load into our VM stack. Product works well, but we don't leverage it perhaps as well as we could or should because we didn't do a good job of defining use-cases that would allow us to set up specific alerts.

One of the easiest solutions to get up and running in hours

Solarwinds has incredible documentation and support. If I come across an issue with a product I know I will get a solution. I only had one question during implementation and it was answered immediately. The setup process couldn't be easier with the prepackaged virtual machine install. Configuration was also straightforward with Solarwinds easy to use wizards.

Implementation isn't bad, support is good, training is extremely helpful in harnesing LEM

The support web portal is ok and phone support has been helpful. The product can be a little daunting at first, but their remote training helped us set up the alerting we wanted while also helping us understand the report and alert building mechanisms.

Great tool to keep an eye on your infrastructure

We began using this product back when it was Trigeo. I was initially concerned when they sold to Soplarwinds, but the experience has been great. The same amazing support, regular updates, and stable pricing. When we initially deployed this product we were looking for something to fill many roles to include a syslog server to archive sensitive logs, event detection and alerting for common issues like failed circuits and password lockouts, attempts to log in with privileged accounts, and any infrastructure changes such as changes to Microsoft AD. It has done all of this and more. Over time the interface has become much more sophisticated and intuitive. I regularly produce alerts from LEM to satisfy audit requirements related to oversight & monitoring.

Great product if Windows is your main OS

Would be a five if there was a current version of the agent for Mac; we do not utilize Java 6 due to the inherent security issues, and the agent for Mac requires it. We have put in several requests from Solarwinds for an updated Mac agent but in four months, there has been no update or availability. The interface is not very intuitive, but there are several live and archived training sources that fill in gaps in knowledge.

Easy to set up

Interface is easy to use but the virtual appliance tended to be clunky in earlier versions

SolarWinds Log & Event Manager (LEM)

Low cost and easy to use compared to other SIEM's, although less feature rich

Initial implementation went smoothly. It seems that the data would have been easier to process had we been using Cisco firewalls, vs. the Fortigates we have in place. We had to get Fortinet to normalize the output for us so that they could be more easily consumed by Solarwinds LEM.

Best low price SIEM out there

For the price, this was the most robust and easy to implement and deploy solution we were able to find. Compared to the other options, SolarWinds LEM is the most budget friendly while still allowing for visibility and ease of use.
