We performed a comparison between Microsoft Intune and Rapid7 InsightVM based on real PeerSpot user reviews.
Find out in this report how the two Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"Great for software update needs, operating system version updates, and security policy enforcement."
"I like that we can implement conditional access."
"Stable product that's easy to set up compared to other MDM products."
"The conditional access policies that we set up are very useful."
"Remote Wipe and Autopilot is one of the best features."
"The solution is scalable. We currently have tens of thousands of users within our organization using the solution."
"We already use a lot of Microsoft products in our company, and therefore, it made sense to also use this product."
"It works pretty well for us."
"Rapid7 have a good distribution network with good support and market presence."
"I have been in contact with technical support and they are not bad."
"I liked the dashboard on it. I could customize my dashboard with different widgets and different heat maps."
"I really love the new platform. It is really easy to understand, use, and deploy."
"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."
"The product is scalable."
"One of the most valuable features is it's graphical dashboard feature. It is quite easy to manage the widgets, and we can customize those according to our queries."
"The feature that I have found most valuable is its dashboards."
"The synchronization could be improved."
"Could benefit from user having more control over devices."
"Reporting and troubleshooting for the application deployment could be better. It's very difficult to understand."
"Its configuration is fairly complicated. You have to do quite a bit of discovery to be able to deploy it for a customer. You have to ask them a lot of questions. So, its initial deployment is the biggest challenge. They should make it easier to deploy with the use of Wizards or something else. During the deployment stage, there could be profiles for the customers who are particularly wanting to use certain feature sets of Intune."
"There should be more focus on mobile device security and integration."
"Lacking in features such as Wi-Fi and network security."
"The pricing can be expensive if you are not combining it with other products."
"It should be simplified. I've worked with many different mobile device management solutions, and Intune is one of the more complex ones. It could be more simplified, and some of it is related to the wording that is being used, such as a configuration profile versus a policy. They really should have had different names to make it less confusing."
"Rapid7 could be easier to manage."
"All products have room for increased security and Rapid7 InsightVM is no exception."
"Rapid7 InsightVM could be easier to use for those who are using it for the first time."
"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."
"The on-premise updates could improve from Rapid7 InsightVM."
"I would say that it improved our visibility, but it left things open."
"It is still not a fully cloud-based solution. It will be helpful for customers if it is a complete cloud solution. It is a hybrid solution at the moment."
"The solution could improve by being more secure."

Reviews from Real Users
Microsoft Intune stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its ability to secure all devices under its management and the flexibility that the solution offers its users.
A computing services manager notes, "Its security is most valuable. It gives us a way to secure devices, not only those that are steady. We do have a few tablets and other devices, and it is a way for us to secure these devices and manage them. We know they're out there and what's their status. We can manage their life cycle and verify that they're updated properly."
The head of IT engineering at a financial services company writes, "The one feature we find most useful is the Mobile Application Manager. There are two types: we have the complete MDM and the Mobile Application Manager (MAM). We don't give our users phones, it is their own personal phone, and we need to allow them to have access to the company details on their phone. We need to create a balance between their own personal data and the company data. We deploy the Mobile Application Manager for them so that we won't be able to interfere with their own personal data."
