What is most valuable?

The features that I've found most valuable are its container security aspect. I also like its vulnerability management tools.

What needs improvement?

I think its TOA interfaces are still not that comfortable. The UI could be more user-friendly, easier to use. Now, the technical guys don't have that much time. When I'm using it on the cloud it takes a lot of time to use it manually on all the tools and to keep track of everything that's going on… more»

What other advice do I have?

It’s a good tool, I still need to work on it more to make it a priority. It is a good tool to make sure that your containers are safe and sound. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a 7. I give it a 7 because of the product's UI interface. I'm not the language guy, so I will have to have the scripts… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, we did evaluate other options, and we're still in the process of doing it more. Because everything that I'm reporting to right now is based on our POC that was done with this product
