It has an accurate database of vulnerabilities with a low amount of false positives

What is our primary use case?

Talking about the current situation in our security posture, we decided to choose a platform which could help us to improve our Security Development Lifecycle process. We needed a product that could help us mitigate some risks related to the security side of open source frameworks, libraries, licenses, and IT configuration. We were interested in a solution that could also utilize Docker images that we are using for the deployment. In general, we were interested in a vulnerability scanner platform for performance scans to deliver and calculate our risks related to code development.

Pros and Cons

  • "It has an accurate database of vulnerabilities with a low amount of false positives."
  • "The documentation sometimes is not relevant. It does not cover the latest updates, scanning, and configurations. The documentation for some things is wrong and does not cover some configuration scannings for the multiple project settings."

What other advice do I have?

Check the following before using Snyk: * Your language frameworks and whether Snyk can cover them. * The specific packet managers that your are using. * How Snyk performs with all your platforms, not just the main part. Gauge the difficulty. Check the solution for all your language specifics. We have had some interesting projects where the default configuration does not work. Before using such products, you should check it in the most complex projects that you have. Based on all our products, including Snyk, we have seen a 50 percent reduction in the amount of time it takes to fix problems…

Sophisticated, easier, more user-friendly, and has a flexible deployment

What is our primary use case?

In terms of our use cases, we are a telecom firm and we work a lot with telecom firms around the world, and so we have a lot of solutions other than Twistlock. We have applications, we have consumer-based solutions that we run on a daily basis, and heavily regulatory processes as well. We found it's better that we move our core application than our user systems on container because they're quick, they're effective, easy to deploy, and easy to maintain. But because of the sanctions, heavily regulated security is a very core part of the entire environment, and thus we had to go ahead and look… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "I would say Twistlock is a fairly sophisticated tool."
  • "In terms of improvement, there are some small things like hardening and making sure the Linux resources are deployed well but that's more at an operational level."

What other advice do I have?

I would say Twistlock is a fairly sophisticated tool. It's not the most user-friendly so if somebody wants to use it for their deployment, their firm, they need to have the right people on your team to know how to use it because it's not a plug and play kind of software, like Aqua Security which is a little more plug and play. I think it's easier, more user-friendly, and has a more flexible kind of deployment. If you can configure it well, Twistlock is a lot better in providing you real-time statistics than Aqua Security. I would rate it an eight out of ten. I recommend two months of POC in…
