Rapid7 InsightIDR Initial Setup

Setup was extremely simple. An implementation specialist was assigned to me to help get me started and to learn my environment and challenges. For the most part, all communications are sent to a log aggregation server. It is as simple as pointing syslogs to that server. For some, such as Active Directory and Exchange, there are plugins that are simple to install on those servers to make sure the appropriate logs are sent. From InsightIDR, it is as simple as choosing from a list of supported log sources, or you can create a generic log source by specifying a port number. It’s that simple. View full review »

The initial setup was pretty straightforward, but it takes a little bit of a mental leap to understand how it all works together. What's key to remember is that it is user and endpoint centric, and not account centric. That means that, over time, it will start associating user.a on host1 to user.a on host2 and treating them as the same. It could be a little confusing for some companies if they don't use standardized permissions or don't use administrative-only accounts, but for most current user-access mechanisms, it shouldn't lead to any abnormal results.

It is very simple. It is a case of requesting a trial from Rapid7, then connecting the relevant logging devices, such as our AD servers or DNS servers to it and sitting back. Obviously, there is more to it than that, but that is the principle. View full review »

Very simple. Spin up a couple of servers, create all the log connectors and you are up and running. The setup was complete within days and we had alerts being generated straight away. View full review »

The initial setup is quite straightforward and can be accomplished from their Quick Start Guide. As the platform is quite adaptable, it can continue to be expanded to add many different log types, which you may find to be a continuous process. View full review »
