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.

Stable, reasonable support, and it is priced well compared to some products

What is our primary use case?

This is a product for network security, and network management. We don't use it at the production level. I am conducting a PoC. We are using this in our testing data center and not in our live data center. This infrastructure contains many security devices from other vendors such as Palo Alto. We are also using vSAN and vCenter.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are stability and low cost."
  • "There are always issues integrating with Cisco."

What other advice do I have?

It's a good product. This is a solution that I recommend. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
