Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The visibility is the main benefit. We now know how many devices are connected, what the use for each device is and what kind of devices we have in our environment."
"Emergency response, risk assessment information to get a view of the of the vulnerability."
"The most valuable features are remote access and administration scripts."
"The most valuable feature is the blocking of USB devices."
"The user interface is quite simple."
"It allows for good detection of all the vendor products we have on-site."
"We think it's simple. We think it's very useful and we really like reports and everything."
"We really like that we get full visibility of devices in the local network."
"It is stable and scalable."
"This solution is much more user-friendly than past solutions I have used."
"Rapid7 InsightVM has given us a practical view of the vulnerabilities present in our organization."
"The most valuable feature for us is the different types of reporting it provides."
"We feel the interface is very good. It is very easy to use, even a nontechnical person can use it."
"The most valuable feature is the site scanning, where we can provide a complete subnet and what it is we need to scan on those devices."
"There are many integrations with things like the VMware NSX that are great, the reporting is really solid."
"It's easy to use. It's fast, it's a powerful easy to access tool."
"They should improve features related to IT security. ForeScout should analyze behavior to see if the behavior is malicious behavior and block this device. They should develop the ability to analyze the behavior of the device in my environment."
"Search - needs boolean functionality (or pseudo operand now working)."
"We experienced some detection issues when checking compliance for the Sophos agent."
"The ability to block external devices in Mac is lacking and needs to be added."
"The solution does have a bit of complexity, and there's some complexity in the deployment. Users need to be trained before undertaking an initial setup."
"The solution could always improve by adding more features to make it more robust."
"The biggest disadvantage is the pricing."
"It's scalable, but not without a big investment. It doesn't do so well at the branch. At the home office, it does okay and not so well at the branch."
"There are not enough templates, and the reporting is weak with this solution."
"This solution creates false-positives which can cause issues with reporting."
"A definite improvement would be to make it easier to run ad-hoc scans without needing to assign the asset to a site or group."
"This solution integrates with another module in Metasploit, that doesn't exist in the other solutions. It is subscribed to on our roadmap, but we chose to implement both Nexppose and AppSpider."
"The reporting has room for improvement. You cannot customize any report. If I need a specific requirement, I have to create a new report for it."
"The reporting is a little bit tricky because it can be difficult to exactly pinpoint some of the assets to filter them and generate a report."
"Some difficulties with the online reporting and lack of integrations."
"The InsightVM cannot scan if we connect to our customer by the VPN."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"Devices with multiple IP's count multiple times against your license count."
"The fact that we were allowed to spin up as many servers as we had need of to support our geographic requirements while paying for licensing as an enterprise truly set Forescout apart from the crowd and improved the way we could design our access."
"We went with the virtual appliance option. The biggest cost to running these types of appliances would be to either have multiple virtual appliances at every data center or running Remote SPAN hardware to provide you the real-time network visibility."
"The ROI is priceless."
"It might not be the cheapest solution, but you get what you pay for."
"Time savings in finding rogue devices as well as identifying potentially unwanted devices on the network has saved the organization time and money."
"The setup cost, pricing, and licensing are on the high side."
"Forescout Platform is too expensive, so the price should be reduced."
"The price of the solution is less than the competitors."
"I do not have experience with the pricing of the solution."
"This solution is expensive, but it's fine for us as we have an open budget for security solutions. Protection and having the system secured is more important."
"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."
