What is most valuable?

RedLock is quite good for providing multi-clouds or cross-cloud security.

How has it helped my organization?

It has not been implemented, but Prisma or Dome9 will provide us with better cloud security and less administration time for our cloud instances.

What needs improvement?

In our testing, we have found the Check Point product CloudGuard Dome9 to be more user-friendly at this point. Palo Alto Prisma's interface was not as user-friendly. Palo Alto should work on this part… more»

All of the features are very useful in today's market.

How has it helped my organization?

Dome9 can be used centrally manage many different functions that take care of operations such as scanning the network.

Dome9 should also support deployments that are on-premises and in a hybrid cloud. This solution needs DLP support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are currently running Palo Alto Prisma and evaluating it together with Dome9.

What other advice do I have?

The functionality that is used will vary depending on the use case. For example, in a recent use case that I worked on, the data packets had public access without exception. However, this should not… more»
