RackFoundry Total Security Management offers a complete firewall solution. It includes VPN, SIEM, automated vulnerability scanning and log management features scaled for SME’s.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/Jl/h8/UUKVPXASSP28.PNGRackFoundry | An exercise in dissapointmentIdeally RackFoundry would operate as a SEIM-type solution (Security information and event management) for our organization, however that has not been the case. It would be used across the entire company if the product worked. It ideally would solve a number of problems about the lack of contextual information for indicators of compromise, but it doesn't.,Making promises about a service and product. Advertising a good price and offering great services. Supposedly offer 24/7 365 level 1 threat triaging.,Product they offer does not work. Time to implement is unbelievably long. Services they offer are so far, non-existent.,1,Overall the product has had a negative impact. Not necessarily on our environment but in the amount of time it has taken to deploy.,AlienVault OSSIM and Splunk EnterpriseGreat Company, Great Price for Total Solution ManagementWe needed a solution for IDS and IPS for our whole organization. After months of looking at providers of IDS and IPS we came upon RackFoundry and to my delight it has been amazing working with them. We have multiple sites that we need secured from attacks and their system is providing us that safety net, so that we can focus on our tasks at hand.,Implementation of their system has been completely flawless and is so seamless that no one in our company even knew that we implemented it at first. Working with RackFoundry's implementation team has been wonderful as well, they are very understanding of our needs and always are there to help. Customer service for Rack Foundry is great as well. This is always my first concern when working with a new company and I must say their customer service is top notch.,It has been my first year with Rack Foundry and at this point I have to say everything has been smooth, from implementation to support.,10,Just knowing that we are protected from attacks is our main objective and so far that sense of security is well worth the cost associated with it.,,AlienVault Unified Security ManagementGreat Security Solution for a Mid Size Business - FW/IPS/SIEMWe initially did a POC of RackFoundry's Total Security Management appliance as we were looking for Intrusion Prevention, Intrusion Detection and a Log Management tool. Their current solution allowed us to do more with less. As with all security we really had a tight budget for the fiscal year. Total Security Management allowed us to procure multiple security functions instead of a single product. I can say I am not disappointed with the product as we passed our PCI compliance, however it does take some time for it to boot up. The setup was easy and took less than 30 minutes and my preferences were set in a span of 2 weeks. Easy to use and user friendly for my team for a mid size asset count.,All-in-one solution that covers all the essentials and basic of security needs Unique methodology way for cost effective enterprise security solution Help exceed compliance as their interface allows you to tailor your compliance needs Simple and friendly customizable user interface dashboard Unique function: Ask an Expert Premium fully manage automatic updates with access Deployable Security Modules that encompass IPS/IDS/SIEM/VA/FW Knowledgeable engineers, who helped improve our overall infrastructure by making it more secure,Ask an Expert takes takes 2-48 to hours respond. I've seen them take up to 47 hours on an unknown log, however it has never been greater than 48 hours. Initial configuration took 2-3 weeks to adapt to my team's preference. Professional service days are expensive.,8,We were able to have greater security visibility because of the IDS and the SIEM feature. If we did not choose RackFoundry's Appliance, we probably would have only had 2 security functions that has limited features. Instead we have multiple security functions and had a little extra budget to use towards new equipment. The device has allowed me to use my time more effectively at work. Instead of having some of my staff dedicate their time towards sifting through logs, we are able to see actionable data and react faster.,Barracuda Web Application Firewall, Cisco ASA, HP Arcsight, LogRhythm and Splunk,Palo Alto Networks PA-200, Amazon Web Services, Cisco ASA

I would not recommend RackFoundry to any company whatsoever. At first it seems like a viable solution for the cost. Offering SOC monitoring, implementation and deployment all-in-one seems like a great deal. However it all falls apart when push comes to shoves. As it currently stands we are just over a year into our deployment. All we have to show for it is a fancy web app that does not display any information. In the year that this deployment has been ongoing it has taken us a few months just to get the virtual appliance installed. Then it was another few months of back and forth until we finally got credentials. Then when I finally logged in we began the process of deploying agents and began collecting data. Shortly afterward things began to stall to where they are now. We faced major issues with the web app, scans were not running, assets were not reporting in and data and reports were not being generated. After doing some more research and googling I realized that we were not alone with these issues. Countless other reports from companies who have had similar issues to ours. Each time I ask when the issues were going to be resolved, I got the same answer every time: "The next release should fix the issues you have been experiencing", only for the next release to come, and the issues remain.

From a cost perspective, I have found that you get more bang for you buck with RackFoundry. I have been researching IDS and IPS companies for months and the cost has always been astronomical, until I came upon RackFoundry. If you need an all in one solution for IDS & IPS, I would highly recommend that you give this company a call.

RackFoundry Total Security Management (TSM) is suited for most companies that have the same challenge as my team had. If you are looking to purchase one security tool and spend most of your allocated budget then I would not recommend this for you. However, if you are looking for something close to a single pane of glass, (granted there is no such thing) this solution does come close as they have the main components built in such as their FW/IPS/IDS/SIEM. Before selecting RackFoundry we had two options which were: 1) Upgrade our current solution and spend an overbearing amount 2) Search for new vendors and maybe procure 1-3 devices and then manually integrate them. Because this was a unified console and integration between devices was simple, we were able to obtain 4-6 security functions and we even had some sense of security visibility via the SIEM. It's not as powerful as Splunk or LogRhythm, but it definitely does the job.
