Comments: I like the fact that it is based on open source solutions but with an additional layer that adds simplicity and integration between open source tools that I am already familiar with.

When I scan the network with the auto-detection feature, all the devices that are inserted into the monitoring module are also automatically inserted into the other modules.

Pros:
Very complete, all in one box! even management of event logs are included. I don't know how they do this.
Powerful, simple not too much info for nothing and complete.
Intuitive, easy to navigate and provide a bonus of having a good looks for this kind of product.
Not limited to a specific manufacturer, so you can have a flexible network.
Updates automatically, I've nothing to do for this part.

Cons:
Each module has its own authentication method.
Standard edition is limited in features compared to other the editions.

In conclusion, I would say that it is a very good product in this domain compared to the others which cost your life to be implemented and used.
