We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"They also provide some of the greatest notification capabilities. I put in a customer's company name and domain names, or sometimes I put in their IP addresses as a keyword. Once Sixgill collects information that includes those keywords, they then provide us email notifications. That means we can catch information related to our customers as soon as possible.""The advanced analysis has made our security operations more efficient. It has also potentially given us quicker access to data that we might not have otherwise located.""The solution’s approach of using limited open source intelligence and focusing, instead, on the Deep Web and Dark Web is what seals the deal. That is why I like them. I have other tools that I can aggregate all the open source intelligence from. I value Cybersixgill because it provides access to things that no one else does.""To be diligent for the customer, we usually go into Cybersixgill Investigative Portal to analyze and search things. The solution tells us the reputation of cyber threat actors. So, if someone has a reputation of one, it is a really bad idea to care about what that person is saying. However, if you find someone with a reputation of nine, then there is a high probability that we need to address the problem. You can get information about these type of actors in Cybersixgill Investigative Portal. They have a huge collection, which is like having the rules/goals of the dark web and deep web without having to go there. Our analysts avoid going dark web because they have Cybersixgill Investigative Portal and can get the news from their browser, searching wherever they want."

"When it comes to the process, installation is very easy and does not take long.""The performance is good.""I have been in contact with technical support and they are not bad.""When you connect any new device to the network, Rapid7 has the ability to detect the new device immediately. It can scan that device to detect if it has any vulnerability. It tells you what is vulnerable and what has been misconfigured. It also tells you what is the risk of that misconfiguration or lack of patches and how to resolve the problem.""We feel the interface is very good. It is very easy to use, even a nontechnical person can use it.""We are very satisfied with the reports, as they provide us with the information that is required for our management.""I liked the dashboard on it. I could customize my dashboard with different widgets and different heat maps.""Using Rapid7, we can install a scan engine, we can do our VPN connections, and we can conduct internal scans of remote sites. We prefer the web application. It's smarter and more accurate from an application perspective."

Cons
"Sixgill has strong capabilities based on search queries, but there is some difficulty in using Sixgill. Their querying is very powerful but it can be difficult. It's not hugely complex but you need some skill to use Sixgill querying.""The breadth of access to data is good, but there are gaps. More data would be my suggestion because the platform is good and I have no complaints about the system. I think it is just a case of always trying to get more data sources.""Regarding their scraping abilities, things could be solidified. There are definitely improvements that could be made on the specificity for setting certain queries.""We need real-time updated information. If we could have this, it would be amazing. For example, if someone was posting something, then ten second later, it was on the platform. Sometimes, it takes a minute or hours right now, depending on the forum."

"Rapid7 could be easier to manage.""I would like to see more integration.""The solution could improve by being more secure.""We found that after you passed an endpoint, it didn't always reflect it in the next scan. I'm not sure if it was a glitch or some issue with the product's software. That was never clear. That was always an issue and something that definitely needed improvement.""There have been instances where technical support takes a long time to update the status of a ticket, which is something that can be improved.""I would say that it improved our visibility, but it left things open.""All products have room for increased security and Rapid7 InsightVM is no exception.""In terms of improvements, its price could be better. Our main issue with Rapid7 is that it is too expensive. You can only sell it to enterprise accounts. In terms of new features, Rapid7 came up with a product called InsightIDR a couple of years ago, which is a good SIEM solution. We expect that Rapid7 will work on some sort of integration between InsightVM and InsightIDR, where vulnerability or anomaly detected by InsightVM can be reported in InsightIDR in some sort of real-time. Rapid7 doesn't patch. For example, if you have a vulnerability, some products can scan and also do the patching, but Rapid7 does not do the patching. It would be nice if it can also patch."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The pricing is cheap compared with Recorded Future. Sixgill's cost-effectiveness is very good."
  • "Sometimes, Cybersixgill Investigative Portal is cheaper than its competitors."

  • "The license is IP based. How many IPs you are using to scan is the amount of the license you have to buy. The number of users doesn't matter; many users can use it or only person. It depends on the culture of the organization."
  • "Our licensing costs are somewhere around $40,000 annually. There are no additional fees."
  • "The licensing is asset-based and very straightforward."
  • "Its price is too high. My only concern or issue with Rapid7 is its pricing."
  • "Comparing the price with the value that we receive, I am not happy with it."
  • "The license is annual and this is the optimal approach when it comes to most software."
  • "In some cases, we procure the licenses. In some cases, the customers directly buy the license from Rapid7."
  • "Licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis."
