We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

The most valuable features are that it's easy to use and manage.The most valuable feature is the security.We use Aqua Security for the container security features.Aqua Security allowed us to gain visibility into the vulnerabilities that were present in the container images, that were being rolled out, the amount of risk that we were introducing to the platform, and provided us a look into the container environment by introducing access control mechanisms. In addition, when it came to runtime-level policies, we could restrict container access to resources in our environment, such as network-level or other application-level access.Valuable features include the ability to connect it to our Docker Hub where our images are stored, good integration with Slack, and the connection to the CV, to easily see which CVs are on each image.

I was looking for a vulnerability scanner and I was looking for one place in which I could find everything. This tool not only does vulnerability scanning, but it also gives me an asset management tool.One of the most valuable features is the compliance of RedLock, which we are using for any issues with security. It flags them and that's the primary objective of that feature.I would say Twistlock is a fairly sophisticated tool.The product is quite good for providing multi-clouds or cross-cloud security from a single-pane -of-glass.The runtime mechanism on the solution is very useful. It's got very good network mapping between containers. If you have more than one container, you can create a content data link between them.The most valuable feature is that the rule set is managed and that it can be run on a regularly scheduled basis.It has helped us understand the dynamic topology of our containers, and manage security through the application of policies that our pipelines apply straight from Git.The dynamic workload identity creation, attestation, and assignment is the best feature. In addition, the application dependency map across heterogeneous environments for compliance is a striking feature.

They want to release improvements to their product to work with other servers because now there are more focused on the Kubernetes environment. They need to improve the normal servers. I would like to have more options.Since we are working from home, we would like to have the proper training for Aqua.I would like Aqua Security to look into is the development of a web security portal.

We would like it to have more features from the risk and compliance perspectives.The feedback that we have given to the Palo Alto team is that the UI can be improved. When you press the "back" button on your browser from the Investigate tab, the query that you're working on just disappears. It won't keep the query on the "back" button.In terms of improvement, there are some small things like hardening and making sure the Linux resources are deployed well but that's more at an operational level.Palo Alto should work on ease-of-use and the user-friendliness to be more competitive with some competing products.The innovation side of the solution could be more efficient and more detailed.The pricing for the solution needs improvement.I would like to see the inclusion of automated counter-attack, although this is probably illegal.More documentation with real-world use cases would be helpful.

Pricing and Cost Advice
They were reasonable with their pricing. They were pretty down-to-earth about the way they pitched their product and the way they tried to close the deal. They were one of the rare companies that approached the whole valuation in a way that made sense for our company, for our needs, and for their own requirements as well... They will accommodate your needs if they are able to understand them and they're stated clearly.
