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.

Oktopost

It is most suited for businesses that require a medium to high level of promotion and distribution and where tracking is required. It is also very suitable for campaigns that require lead tracking and conversions

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.

  • Convenient post scheduling to all platforms, along with batch submissions to LinkedIn Groups.
  • Social media lead generation monitoring.
  • Lovely user interface with all of the information you need and none that you don't.
  • The social inbox gives you a convenient dashboard for managing responses across all platforms — including replies to LinkedIn Group discussions.

Cons

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

  • The listening in Oktopost is lacking; we are only able to track conversations that we have initiated.

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'm 99% sure we would renew. I don't really appreciate the way the leads dashboard is set up, but that would be the only thing that makes me vulnerable to another product vs. renewing.

When I have sent in questions to support, I have received answers pretty quickly and they were helpful.However, I would like to see more information on the support page rather than having to contact them directly.

There is a lack of online training videos or documentation. They have a long list of FAQ's but I would prefer a quick YouTube video instead.

As I stated earlier, I would suggest doing a quick session with the Oktopost team in order to properly set up the account and make sure you are getting the full experience.

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.

Buffer - it's good but I would say ideal for smaller teams.HubSpot - is great as you have everything in one place - not as good as Oktopost for content curation though.
