ForeScout CounterACT is well suited for a company looking to strengthen their network security. It has allowed us to be confident that there is not a rogue device connecting directly into our network to gain access to company information. It may not be suitable to a company with a small IT department as it does require time up front to initially configure and on an on-going basis to manage.

N-able RMM (formerly Solarwinds RMM)

SolarWinds patch management has had issues over the years. Sometimes requiring manual intervention to get resolved. The UI [with N-able RMM (formerly Solarwinds RMM)] makes it easy to see status of systems and identify any alerts easily. Remotely monitoring the status of servers/computers. Managing the systems, patching, systems maintenance and remote support.

Pros

Forescout

  • Ensure authorized devices only connect to our network
  • Guest registration
  • Endpoint visibility
Mitchell Greenfield | TrustRadius Reviewer

N-able RMM (formerly Solarwinds RMM)

  • It provides fantastic remote access capabilities. The Take Control tool gives us a robust platform that is capable of remote controlling almost any endpoint we need to and the chat, file transfer, and screen recording tools are all exceptionally useful.
  • SolarWinds RMM is particularly useful as a single pane of glass solution that allows us to monitor and manage thousands of endpoints across dozens of different clients. It does a solid job of allowing us to sort, organize, and filter based off of who and what we want to see at any given time.
  • Due to its client based nature, the platform excels at in-depth monitoring of services, event logs, and the functionality of systems with custom script checks.

Cons

Forescout

  • Grow the Forescout community to help in addressing concern for a larger audience via channels
  • More training and demos for latest FS versions released
  • GUI can be made more interactive and aesthetic in appearance
Harmesh Trivedi | TrustRadius Reviewer

N-able RMM (formerly Solarwinds RMM)

  • UI speed and threading across multiple windows (1 window refreshing, causes all refreshes to hang).
  • Load times in certain menus, regardless of server specs.
  • Integration with 3rd party applications.
  • Speed of dev team response in regards to existing features malfunctioning, or major bugs that Solarwinds does not consider major.

The interface is easy to navigate. Setting up policies is straight forward. The antivirus and web filter are simple and exceptions are easy to make. Upgrading the agent is made simple and creating scripts is made fool proof. (Well, almost)

They are prompt in their response with a complete resolution once they have identified the problem. Other OEM's generally give stop-gap arrangements and then later come with new upgrade versions. This gives downtime tasks to customers often, which isn't appreciated. Given the criticality of this software, their support is prompt.

The ease of use, full functionality, reliability and excellent support.[N-able RMM (formerly Solarwinds RMM)] gives users a full suite of tools with a single installable file. Unlike standard tools, you don't have to install several different executables to be able to have fully protected end points.

CounterACT was the product that was able to do exactly what we were looking to accomplish and that was to block non-company owned devices from connecting to our network based on our criteria. It will allow us to decide if a blocked device should be allowed on our network temporarily

SolarWinds definitely is the the most ready out of the box as far as getting is up and running and you can start using it where other system go from need ing a little setup like importing MIBS to completely needing to configure the system. As far a performance once things are up and working I feel they all do a good job at basic monitoring and management. The difference is that SolarWinds does a good job at having things templated but allows you to customize some attributes. If you are want to make major customization for alerts and monitoring and other things SolarWinds is not the best option. But, then again, you will not need a team just to manage the system.

Return on Investment

Forescout

  • ForeScout has automated the detection of rogue devices
  • ForeScout has enabled us to get a get a better understanding of endpoint compliance
Mitchell Greenfield | TrustRadius Reviewer

N-able RMM (formerly Solarwinds RMM)

  • The ROI is immediate for us. The advanced alerting alone makes this product an ace in our bag. The confidence you have in your network is wonderful.
  • Another big ROI we get from the advanced alerting is the peace of mind that our engineers feel. We are a 24/7 shop, so being on-call goes from being hectic to extremely manageable.
  • The only negative I can honestly say is when the time comes to patch the product. Micro-patches are easy enough, but jumping versions can be a bit taxing.
