What is this used for?
Aristotle™ is used to monitor and report on computer systems and application usage and policy compliance.

What is the DataVault™?
The DataVault™ is the server component of the Aristotle™ system. The DataVault™ comes preconfigured and is included in the price of the system.

I am not technical. How much IT staff resources are required to use this?
Technical staff will be required to install Aristotle™. From removal of the DataVault™ from shipping container to powered up and fully deployed is usually 1⁄2 day of effort for one person.

Who is Sergeant Laboratories?
Sergeant Laboratories, Inc. is a Wisconsin corporation. We are privately held and have been in business for over fourteen years.

I currently am running Event Log Aggregators, does this replace the aggregators?
No. Aggregators have useful but separate purposes. They are an important part of any organization's overall defense in-depth strategy. However they tend to be overwhelming in system requirements and very difficult for security officers to review and understand. Aristotle™ has a very small foot print on your systems and allows for rapid, and many times automatic, discovery of problems in the system. Aristotle™ provides the documentation and proof that policies are working.

Can I replace my Firewalls or Internet Filters?
No. You still need to have a security policy and infrastructure.

I run Zen Works® and I think it does this.
Zen Works® is a great product but it is targeted for system management. Its reporting features are geared toward software coverage and deployment. Aristotle™ is used to track, report and provide forensic coverage of actual human use of the systems.

"I am happy that you have grown the way you have, you have a great product. You also have been extremely responsive to requests and believe me that means a lot to have a vendor who continually improves the product. Keep up the good work."

-Craig Flagel, Director - Portage County Data Processing
