Likelihood to Recommend

Colasoft Capsa

Capsa is highly recommended to be used in small dense areas of a network where it makes sense to be able to run analytics off of a mirror port to gain insight into traffic trends. It is a costly product to install in branch locations, and requires a decent spec hardware to run appropriately

This applies to current releases, I guess the next one will be much more comprehensive.

  • Hardware support.
  • Slack integration (not sure if really needed, just because many others have this).
  • Universal connector for Linux boxes.

Alternatives Considered

Colasoft Capsa

Colasoft performs more like the traditional wireshark as opposed to other solutions that tend to focus on graphs instead of giving you the raw data. I personally prefer the raw data, and then the ability to build graphs upon this (which Capsa can do). This allows for quicker analysis and makes it easier to relate to.

Indeni

Indeni is not a substitution, I guess it can be used for operations support while Cisco Prime does configuration management and PRTG can monitor traffic and/or WAN.

Return on Investment

Colasoft Capsa

  • While the product doesn't detect malware, it has helped track down malware infected machines by using data from other applications to run filters to look for known traffic destinations for that malware. For me this is a huge ROI since malware can be the great unknown.
  • Relatively cheap compared to the feature set.

  • No, I am in the evaluation stage and cannot calculate ROI.
  • Indeni can be used to support the implementation of high-scale projects.
