Likelihood to Recommend

Acronis Files Connect

If you have enough Mac clients working off a server, and they need search, or have been causing issues with Office docs, then this is definitely for you. Even if it's just a few users, the price of a small license is quite reasonable. If you don't have these issues, I wouldn't bother. The Mac does SMB "relatively" well.

Forescout CounterACT

ForeScout CounterACT is well suited for a company looking to strengthen their network security. It has allowed us to be confident that there is not a rogue device connecting directly into our network to gain access to company information. It may not be suitable to a company with a small IT department as it does require time up front to initially configure and on an on-going basis to manage.

Forescout CounterACT 8.0
Based on 1 answer
They are prompt in their response with a complete resolution once they have identified the problem. Other OEM's generally give stop-gap arrangements and then later come with new upgrade versions. This gives downtime tasks to customers often, which isn't appreciated. Given the criticality of this software, their support is prompt.

Forescout CounterACT

CounterACT was the product that was able to do exactly what we were looking to accomplish and that was to block non-company owned devices from connecting to our network based on our criteria. It will allow us to decide if a blocked device should be allowed on our network temporarily
