A powerful solution for our clients to effectively deal with problems unique to AWS

What is our primary use case?

We have been researching this solution as something to provide for clients who are interested in implementing a high-security AWS environment.

Pros and Cons

  • "People implementing this solution are concerned with addressing a significant risk, and within the AWS realm, this tool does de-risk substantially."
  • "I would like to see some AI on the back-end, just to assist with doing analysis and making recommendations."

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I would recommend because it does unique things that I'm not aware any other product can solve those issues. It is incredibly powerful and gives our customers a lot of assurance that we're taking AWS security seriously. My advice for those implementing this product is to use every piece of it. Explore every option and feature and leverage it to the max. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Enables us to have a centralized view of all our visible assets ECs and inventories

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case for this solution is associated with a challenge whereby we have multiple cloud computing platforms. We have our past cloud platforms in AWS and ECP. Therefore, we can configure management and policy governance tools to deployment across all sites.

Pros and Cons

  • "Dome9 has improved our organization; we have a centralized view of all of our assets, our visible assets our ECs, our inventories. And then all the policies are centralized, and it is easier to manage because everything is one component console."
  • "I would like to see Test B functions at the application access level."

What other advice do I have?

My advice is to try to get the trial period first because this will allow them to see if this is a suitable solution or not for their environment. They have to remember that this solution can only be compared to Test B, but it's not Test B. The trial allows for appropriate compatibility and suitability evaluations. On a scale from one to ten, ten being the best, I would gladly rate this product an eight out of ten.

Wraps our FTP infrastructure with network security and allows us to monitor FTP activity

Pros and Cons

  • "Dome9 wraps our FTP infrastructure with its network security configurations, and this also gives us the ability to monitor FTP activity."
  • "Gives us centralized firewall management for both Windows and Linux distros. Also provides a clear view of the security configurations and connections across environments (DMZ, external and internal networks)."
  • "The user interface is responsive and quite intuitive; when selecting an object it automatically shows the relevant actions."
  • "I’d like to see more integration with third-party tools. For example, it would be helpful to have an integration between Dome9 and ServiceNow to manage security incidents and security changes."

What other advice do I have?

My advice would be: * Share your project goal(s) with the vendor to help you map the functionalities and modules needed, to be implemented in phases, during implementation. * Map your existing security configurations and create a lab to test them with and without Dome9. * Implement the solution progressively and look at the logs in the Dome9 application to learn about the network activity.

Continues to be a major piece of our cloud security architecture

What is our primary use case?

We use Dome9 to control our AWS security groups, evaluate and map security group traffic, and conduct compliance checks of our cloud environment regularly.

Pros and Cons

  • "Dome9 continues to be a major piece of our cloud security architecture and has given our senior leadership team a high degree of confidence in our ability to protect our cloud environment."
  • "We have more visibility than ever before, appreciating the valuable and proactive insight that we receive from the platform."
  • "The Compliance engine has helped put our auditors and senior executives at ease, as we can quickly and accurately measure ourselves against hundreds of compliance checks to include CIS benchmarks, PCI, and other best practices."
  • "I would like to see tighter integration with other compliance tools, like Chef Compliance, in addition to Inspector."

What other advice do I have?

Start with read-only and move to full-control slowly. When you go to full control, there will need to be good communications with your AWS teams, so they know it is there. Do not do full-control on your lab environment. They are a great partner to work with. Not only is the product solid, but we have loved having a good relationship with their leadership and seeing our feedback manifest into real product updates and features!

Dome9 Cloud Street View for AWS Security: The Exponential Cloud Growth Visualization
Confidence is key when it comes to managing large IT systems. The tricky part is when a CIO tries to generate the trust and confidence of a company’s IT environment. Complete transparency is the answer. As you may recall, I’ve written about the need for transparency concerning Newvem’s services in the past. As the cloud industry market matures, the AWS cloud continues to grow at ground-breaking speeds, in addition to the usual individual cloud deployment. In either respect, transparency becomes an issue. Cloud management vendors recognize the need for transparency and are taking the necessary steps to enhance their solutions to better support active visibility. The natural evolution of a typical management system begins with gathering data and presenting it in report tables. While…
