Provides cross-cloud security but it isn't so user-friendly

What is our primary use case?

We use cloud solutions generally for client demos of products.

Pros and Cons

  • "The product is quite good for providing multi-clouds or cross-cloud security from a single-pane -of-glass."
  • "Palo Alto should work on ease-of-use and the user-friendliness to be more competitive with some competing products."

What other advice do I have?

The advice I would give to someone seriously considering these cloud solution products is to be careful with procedures you use while testing them. During the setup phase, there were not many challenges. But while integrating the cloud accounts, I would recommend the users initially provide only read-only access not read-write access, just as a precaution. The users should also be cautious not to expose cloud data to vendors like Dome9 or Palo Alto or whomever the vendor will be. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate the Palo Alto product overall…

Top 10
Get great visibility into vulnerabilities through micro-segmentation

What is our primary use case?

We are a partner, not a customer. We would like to be in a position of trying to provide consultation for this solution and delivery of the product to clients. So, we have partnered with Guardicore in India and we are trying to sell this product and that is our primary use case. The primary use case that we are implementing this product for with clients is micro-segmentation.

Pros and Cons

  • "This tool greatly helps in understanding the footprint of the attacks."
  • "The interface and dashboard are amazing."
  • "The product needs a few features like enhanced user policies and payload-level inspection to improve the offering."

What other advice do I have?

Right now, I would definitely recommend Guardicore for someone who is looking into the micro-segmentation space or probably an internal firewall for the organization. On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate Guardicore Centra as probably an eight-out-of-ten. The interface and dashboard are amazing. I would rate the user interface as a ten-out-of-ten. For other reasons having to do with features and functionality, I have to mark them down a few points.

A secure and stable solution for our on-premises network analytics

What is our primary use case?

We have an on-premises deployment.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature of this solution is security."
  • "The interface is really helpful for technical people, but it is not user-friendly."

What other advice do I have?

You need to have a team with a good understanding of your information systems in order to have benefits with this kind of solution. My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to define what you want to use, and what you need from the tool. You can't have rules that are too strict in the beginning because otherwise, you can't go to production. Over time, you will have a clear view of what is ongoing with your information system. This allows you to improve step-by-step. This is a long-term approach. This is a good solution, but it should be more user-friendly and easier to deploy…

Feature-rich, centrally managed, and stable, but it needs DLP support to be included

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and we are evaluating multiple tools for cloud workload security and vulnerability management. We are evaluating products such as Dome9 to figure out which one would be best for our customers. This solution is used to replace a variety of cloud security and management tools.

Pros and Cons

  • "All of the features are very useful in today's market."
  • "Dome9 should also support deployments that are on-premises and in a hybrid cloud."

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 have been allowed. I definitely suggest that people use Dome9 because I have used it since last year and I really like the features. It is also stable. There is only one feature, DLP, that is not present and we have found in Prisma. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
