In the past I have made several requests and have had the opportunity to work with developers and user-interface specialists to add enhancements to the product. The effort that Rapid7 puts into the user interface, after gaining first-hand use-case information directly from us, the end users, is unprecedented. Even when I worked for much larger companies, I did not see so many suggestions turn into reality. Be sure to take full advantage of the agents. I have not seen any performance problems on the endpoints, and having this level of information from outside the network is difficult otherwise. View full review »

Have a plan going forward (Syslog exports, agent-based collection, etc.) and ensure WMI is available if using Windows Servers. It was very easy to set up, but troubleshooting can be "fun" if an endpoint doesn't connect correctly. Don't be shy of support requests. They'd rather you be "that person" that keeps getting support, rather than being the one that ran into an issue and stopped using the product. View full review »

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this product as a nine-out-of-ten. It is very good but it could be better with a few details that would improve the utility of the investigations interface. View full review »

The product is a shift in paradigm being cloud-based with cloud storage. Be prepared to set up several virtual collector servers within your network, if you have a large network. View full review »
