Actiance

This appliance is well suited for organizations that have a need to monitor, moderate, or log social networking site use or the use of any website. It is a very solid tool for any information security department to have at their disposal.

Gremln

I feel that Gremln is a perfect tool for someone looking to manage several (many) social media sites in one application. It's easy to set up and learn to use, and for what Gremln provides it's inexpensive. Can easily be managed by one person.

Pros

  • Filtering capabilities for both URL and Social Media were easy to implement and manage by the security team. These features allow you to grant or deny access to various user groups as needed all the way to an individual grant or deny. It offers a vary large robust list of configuration options.
  • If you have a need for storing and later discovering Instant Messaging conversations or even messaging in social media then this is the tool to deploy. At that time when we chose this product, none of the other products were capable of meeting the feature set that Actiance offered.
  • Ease of deployment. Its abilities for integration with LDAP and Active directory give a wide set of deployment options.

  • We are able to use multiple social media platforms to post messaging on all platforms
  • It is very user friendly.
  • You can schedule up to year in advance.

Cons

  • Its configuration options were very large and required a good deal of time to learn all of the various settings.

  • The dashboard could be resigned to be visually appealing by creating a better use of white space.
  • Make the scheduling post tab more prominent.
  • Rather than have the columns vertical, my preference it would be to horizontal stacked.

Its not often that you come across a platform that is as easy to deploy as this one was. Once deployed it is an easy configure and forget appliance, but then you wouldn't get to benefit from its many other available features.

I love using Gremln, and I encourage its use by those trying to get all their platforms managed in one service. I was part of the Gremln Beta, and we had a grandfathered account that is no longer featured. Because of difficulties using that account now (and an unhelpful customer support experience), I can't give a score of ten. However, if I had never had access to the account that I did in beta, I'd likely give Gremln a ten and absolutely renew.

The usability on the listening side is poor. The process to set up streams is not very intuitive, involving too many steps. Also, the ability to create custom search streams is fairly well hidden.The reporting is pretty weak as well, with separate click through reports from other types of engagement, and a lot of engagement types within Facebook and Twitter are simply missing.

Alternatives Considered

This was the only appliance of its kind that I have used. Other devices have different capabilities for web filtering such as the checkpoint firewalls, but none of them offered the overall solution that was deployed with this product at that time.

I have used both Hootesuite, Twitterscope and Grmln. Using the individualized brand platform (Twitterscope) still meant that had to separately post to my other networks. Hootesuite is comparable and the only thing that really makes it standout is the the social media management certification. The downside of that is that you have to pay continue to pay a monthly fee to maintain the certification. Grmln is simply easier to use
