Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Notifications and the detail of notifications are most valuable. It is a user-friendly solution.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward.""Everything is in one dashboard; I'm notified when there's an incident and advised on what steps to take."

More Alert Logic Pros →

"Rapid7 InsightIDR integrates well with other solutions. It's also easy to configure because Rapid7 InsightIDR has a lot of instructions posted on their website that customers can follow if they need to get the source log.""Very intuitive and easy to set up.""If you were on other solutions, you would notice that they use agents from third-party, from open-source, from a native OS, or from other tools. Here, however, it is an agent from Rapid7 itself. This adds to the solution's overall capabilities.""It is a very stable solution.""Simple configuration and automatically syncs to the cloud platform."

Cons
"Its menu is not very intuitive. I would like to see the user menu expanded a bit. The user menu is very layered, and because of the layers, you have to go down a path that is not very intuitive.""We'd like to have triggered alerts sent to us so we see errors quicker.""Could be more of an endpoint protector."

More Alert Logic Cons →

"Lacks a mobile application.""Cloud risk assessment is one area where I think they need a lot of improvement.""The dashboard is an area that could be simplified.""InsightIDR is only available in a cloud version. Some of our customers prefer an on-prem solution because they want to manage the security within their environment.""Inability to get access to compliance reports within the solution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Its pricing is very reasonable considering what you get for what you pay. There is quite a good value there. Its licensing is also very logical. They've got the licensing price points at a reasonable level. It is on a monthly license but a yearly contract. There are no additional costs to the standard licensing fees."
