It's a serverless solution which is the best feature. It helps us because it offers free aspects. From the infrastructure perspective, it helps us manage costs. There is no overhead of estimating how much infrastructure we're going to need. We can focus on building the business functionality that we want to build.

The most valuable feature is that it scans the cloud system and if they are any security anomalies it triggers an email.

The product needs some updating as far as ease-of-customization and configuration opportunities to work with solutions outside of the cloud.

If you are setting it up on hybrid solution, there is a lot of work that needs to go in.

I would like to see some better integration with other providers, like Cohesity, Druva, and others. I also think the Lambda interface could be better.
The setup was pretty complex because there were many steps. For me, it was complex because I was somewhat new at it. It could be easier for someone who has done it a bunch of times. I just found that it was a very dense user experience. There's a lot going on during setup.

The running time of AWS Lambda runs fine. It takes around five minutes but it would be great if that time could be extended.
