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.

NUVI

NUVI is a great tool if you're tasked with monitoring conversation about any topic you need across the social web and can anticipate exactly what you need to be collecting data around. In that regard, it's great for setting up as you're putting together a campaign, and you will find it useful both as the campaign progresses and after the fact. Where it's not particularly useful is after (or even during) a campaign and someone wants you to go back through and find conversation data from the beginning. As I mentioned before, there is 30 day historical Twitter data, but that is only one of the many handfuls of social platforms NUVI can search through, and it's a relatively short amount of time for historical data.

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.

  • Advanced Twitter search (any terms , handles, hashtags, or URLs)
  • Detailed analysis of search results (sentiment, categorization, emotion, rough reach/spread of each)
  • Visualization of mention volume and geography

Cons

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

  • Monitor Management - It can be difficult to nest monitors into projects and then easily administer those projects. Additionally, there are few tools for changing a large number of monitors at once.
  • Historical Data - NUVI doesn't offer much but this is more of an industry issue as most social platforms don't provide easy access to their historical data.
  • Browser support - NUVI works much better on Chrome than Firefox.

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.

NUVI provided us with a more in-depth analysis of what we wanted to see and what we didn't know we needed to see. There is also the advantage of being able to do everything by using one product (NUVI) instead of having to using several different products to accomplish one set of tasks. It also helps that NUVI is much more engaging and appealing to look at
