Which SIEM vendor would your enterprise recommend and why?
I would have to come to a tie on two SIEM vendors, Novell and Quest Software. Novell has wonderful feature performance, product reliability, and real time analysis is superior. Quest software is good when it comes to these qualities as well but has better product performance as a whole with better-automated log collection and compliance reports.
