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.

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.

  • Using the 'Call to Action' feature means I set specific text to drive people to my blog.
  • 1000 clicks for free is an excellent price point for independent consultants and small businesses and the price points to upgrade make a lot of sense too.
  • It's super easy to track clicks and conversions to your website.
  • Super easy integration with Buffer which is fantastic.

Cons

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

  • You cannot use forms without a paid version (so integration to CRM will be limited).

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 used to use Start a Fire but they don't exist anymore. This product is far superior. I'm not aware of other tools that do the same.

Return on Investment

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

  • I use the free version and so far my conversion rate (people who click my call to action) is 0.71%. This is a low number but also represents 3 people who might not ordinarily have visited my website so that's a good return to me.
