The solution suits any size company, whether small, medium, or enterprise, it's a very good fit for all devices. The only drawback, for now, is the intel feeds which don't support any TAXII or STIX feeds so they need to be done manually. I rate the solution eight out of 10.

I am not able to recommend this solution at this time. I don't know it well enough yet. Similarly, it is difficult to say at this time what needs to be improved. We need more time to explore. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten, only because I have recently started using it.

We are solution partners. The solution has a console with everything on the cloud, however, only the centers, the log collectors, are on-premise. This solution is actually cloud-based. People who want a solution, a very simplified and easy to start, and then they want to start immediately on a solution with fewer complications, so those would be the right customers. You can say SME, mid and large actually, but I think mid and large enterprises would be the right fitment. I would recommend the solution. Rapid7's professional services, including their planning, architecture, deployment, et cetera is up to the mark. I would recommend having a few workdays, in the initial planning stage, maybe for assessment of the solution and to take some time to understand everything before beginning. New users should reach out to their Rapid7 professional services for the planning portion of the implementation process. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

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.

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.

You should use it to drive change within your IT from a security point of view. Run a PoC and see exactly what it can do for you. The simple setup means it will be running in no time and you will get meaningful alerts straight away.
