We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The web interface is great — very useful and user-friendly.The incident case management is the most valuable feature. Even though there's always something I find I would like to add to that feature, the ability to quickly sort through all the logs, network and endpoint data, etc., and add it to an incident case as part of the investigation, is nice. Having it automatically timeline that additional data into the original incident timeline, and correlate it to other notable events and activities on the network, results in a huge improvement in our overall confidence that we've quickly traced down the right source of an issue.The alerting to drive investigations and remediation has been its most valuable feature.​It improved my organization by building a security alerting program.​​User behavioral analytics allows us to pinpoint abnormal or suspicious behavior among millions of events every day.Log search allows us to dive deep into aggregated logs and query all event types at once.​The log aggregation and storage provided by InsightIDR has shown no issues with scalability; aggregating over one hundred millions events daily.InsightIDR has allowed us to find potential security issues that we did not know existed, and get remediation quickly.

There's a nice dashboard.

Cons
The interface for doing investigation needs to be enhanced with minor improvements that would make it more useful.The reporting is the weakest aspect. There needs to be multi-level grouping for events (for example, group by user and destination). Right now, we can do a group by user and a separate table or group by destination. But I'd be more interested in where a person was logging into instead of who was logging in or where he was logging in.Customised alert recipients need to be added to allow better first-line action and quicker response. Configurable honeypots would be a welcome addition.It would be useful to import threat intelligence in YARA format along with known incorrect email addresses.​I feel it would greatly benefit from more supported log sources.The ability to tune the collector for custom logs would greatly help.I would like the ability to adjust the threshold of certain existing alerts. Currently the only option is to change the notifications or create my own alert.One thing that springs to mind is easier API integration with ITSMs. We are evaluating a new ITSM and I would like to have InsightIDR create a ticket when an attack is identified, and the ticket would be closed in InsightIDR when the ITSM resolution is completed. This would take out the "single point of failure" we currently have, if the email recipient is somehow absent, in recording the risk appetite for the incident and the actions taken to mitigate or not.

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.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.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.There are not enough templates, and the reporting is weak with this solution.This solution creates false-positives which can cause issues with reporting.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Licensing is by endpoint and amount of retention time (at least ours is). Default retention was one year, but we are able to push the retention further if needed. There's also a provide-your-own-S3 option for longer retention if you don't want to pay for the additional retention years in your Rapid7 agreement.The pricing and licensing are competitive.​Accurately predict your licensing counts as this is a subscription based product.​The team is very willing to work with companies. My suggestion is to call the Rapid7 sales department and see how they can help.​Licensing is straightforward. If, for some reason, you don’t meet the minimum licensing requirements, there is a third-party managed service that can help.​I am sure that there are cheaper products out there, but none that meet so many of our needs whilst maintaining stability and usability.​

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.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 price of the solution is less than the competitors.I do not have experience with the pricing of the solution.
