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

Kaseya Network Monitor

  • We can remotely run an audit on a machine without actually having to log onto the machine.
  • We can if needed log into a machine and take control.
  • Being able to remotely access machines allows us to be more efficient. We no longer have to travel from client to client. I am able to work on several clients at the same time.

Cons

Colasoft Capsa

  • Needs options to scale to 10Gb/s networks. The cutoff for performance looks to be around 3Gb/sl
  • Needs API access to trigger capturesl
  • Needs Agents for remote capturesl

Kaseya Network Monitor

  • Ease of use. Configuration can seem complex at times.
  • False positives are sometimes annoying.
  • Updates could be easier as they sometimes fail during the process.

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.

Kaseya Network Monitor

Nothing for the user to install or a website to log into. It's already running on the machine. It's by far the better product.

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.
