Smarsh Connected Suite

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.

Sniply

Sniply is well suited for large companies with very engaged audiences and brands that attract a lot of attention. It would also work well with single brands that don't have to switch between profiles. For us, it works very well; it is just a little more time consuming than if we were a larger company or had fewer brands.

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.

  • Click Tracking. Sniply is great at giving us the data need. Specifically, we can see how many people click on specific links and how many people then go to our site from that link.
  • This is everything. Our marketing department uses Google Analytics for all our site traffic and the ability to use UTM tracking within our snips is wonderful.
  • Data in general. Sniply gives you all the info you could ever want. Time on page, bounce rate, average pages per visit, and a lot more.

Cons

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

  • Packages. We are a medium-sized company but we manage small brands who do not get a lot of clicks. Because of this, the current packages don't work for our purposes.
  • Integrations. We use Sniply inside of Sendible and the integration is a bit clunky when you have more than one account.
  • Customization. Snips are look the same, it would be helpful if there were more customization options.

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.

Sniply has a lot more data and customization features. Bitly does not have the features we need in the version we use. Sniply's UI is a lot more clean and user friendly then Bitly and is easier to use. Also, the integration with Sendible makes Sniply much more convenient for us to use

Return on Investment

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

  • Time consuming. With the way we use Sniply, it takes a lot of time to shorten the links for all of our brands (negative)
  • Tracking. Allows us to track our audience movement and conversions.
