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.

MavSocial

MavSocial is best suited for small businesses with 10 profiles to manage or less. The next best would be businesses with 11-30 profiles to manage. Above that, I believe there is other software that may be able to provide the same/similar features for similar cost and with more quality control on their system.

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.

  • MavSocial offers features in one place that otherwise would require 2 or more services.
  • MavSocial offers both standard and evergreen posts.
  • The campaign calendar is wonderful to allow you to visually see what days and times you have covered.

Cons

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

  • The reporting features of MavSocial are amazing; however, they tend to be a bit buggy. Some of this is due to the social media platforms changing their API so frequently; however, this feature was a huge selling point for me so I'd like to see them keep up with this a little better.

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.

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 selected MavSocial for the number of features for the money as well as the reporting.

Return on Investment

  • Faster investigative work has led to increased employee efficiency when working on security investigations.

  • When I was first starting my business MavSocial allowed me to get started with very little monthly investment.
  • The reporting features which I love can be buggy and cause problems when trying to pull reports same day.
