Datadog

Datadog is a no-brainer for any environment that relies on multiple servers. Even for one server, it's so much better to use for monitoring and alert capability than anything else I remember looking at before we started using Datadog. Teams can even use it to track their progress of investigating an alert so multiple people aren't unknowingly looking into the same exact issue unnecessarily.

Rapid7

Rapid7 InsightIDR is best suited for environments with different types of infrastructures, cloud, virtual, and on-premise. It will easily handle each of these infrastructures and provide detailed vulnerability scans and show where security holes lie. Rapid7 InsightIDR is also best used where you are looking to automate security as it is able to program automated response and quarantine based on its virus detection.

Pros

Datadog

  • APIs, the ability to interact with the data we pull into data dog is key. We port the information over to Servicenow, so the ability to pull everything into DataDog, then Servicenow, is a key component of our success here at Wayfair.
  • Simple Interface - clean, useful, effective. Allows users to use DataDog for one reason, get work done.
  • Lightweight agent on hosts

Cons

Datadog

  • User interface could be improved in some areas, looking for host information and the agent install link takes a bit of time.
  • Configuration of the agent is generally done via a config file which is a pro and a con. It would be nice to have some UI to configure various agent options.
  • Billing isn't entirely straightforward, they could use more reports to figure out the source of your monthly costs.

Rapid7

  • Agent can be resource intensive at times
  • Server has to be rebooted more often than it should
  • Logging needs a better archiving ability

    Usability

    Datadog

    The user interface is quite intuitive with the exception of the network map. As a deployer of software, it is trivial to setup.

    Support Rating

    Datadog

    The support team usually gets it right. We did have a rather complicate issue setting up monitoring on a domain controller. However, they are usually responsive and helpful over chat. The downside would be I don’t think they have any phone support. If that is important to you this might not be a good fit.

    Alternatives Considered

    Datadog

    We are still trying other products, but people still like Datadog. After setting up a dashboard, it's great for monitoring instances on Datadog. Also, the DevOps team had a good time setting up Datadog. It means Datadog was way easier to set up compared to those others.

    Rapid7

    Many of the top-tier providers of this technology do a comparable job. However, we selected Rapid7 because of their reputation in the area of user behavior analytics, cost, # of SOC locations (due to our selection of their MDR service), support, company growth in other areas and other criteria. Rapid7 started off in the vulnerability management space and own the Metasploit Project. Understanding these two areas are critical in being able to address the InsightIDR threat detection area

    Return on Investment

    Datadog

    • One of our critical production databases went down a couple of weeks back. Just because we had the Datadog monitoring enabled for that database, Datadog sent the alerts to PagerDuty and we were instantly notified via pager and email alert. We could act right away and bring up the database within a few mins.
    • Ability to create custom screenboards have allowed us to track the critical and warning alerts in front of our eyes all the time

    Rapid7

    • We've managed to map all unauthorized access on our network for the two years we've used it.
    • We properly identify all threats on our several data streams.
