We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Provides a very good view of the entire security setup of your organization."
"The most valuable feature is that it's intuitive. It's very intuitive."
"The dashboard is very good. It gives our clients a lot of information and allows them to have a complete overview of the system. Everything is visible in one glance."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the remote workforce capabilities and the general experience of the remote workforce."
"It takes very little effort to integrate it. It also gives very good visibility into what exactly is happening."
"The technical support is very good."
"It's quite a good product. It helps to understand the infections and issues you are facing."
"Good compliance policies."
"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."
"People implementing this solution are concerned with addressing a significant risk, and within the AWS realm, this tool does de-risk substantially."
"All of the features are very useful in today's market."
"The reporting against compliance is an important feature that helps you comply with policies and standards within your organization."
"Assets Management as it provide complete visibility of our workload inkling EC2 instance or Serverless"
"It helps us to analyze vulnerabilities way before they get installed in production and the web. It gives us more security in the production environment."
"This product provides a really nice visualization of the infrastructure, including network topology, firewalls, etc."
"On Dome9, you can have reports on compliance, users created, and EAM access to the cloud infrastructure. For example, if some machine is exposed to the Internet, importing and exporting to the Internet when it shouldn't, we get immediate alerts if someone does this type of configuration by mistake. Dome9 is very important because AWS doesn't protect us for this. It is the client's responsibility to make sure that we don't export things to the Internet. This solution helps us ensure that we comply with our security measures."
"No possibility to write or edit any capability."
"When you work with it, the only problem that we're struggling with is that we have 21 different subscriptions we're trying to apply security to. It's impossible to keep everything organized."
"The solution is quite complex. A lot of the different policies that actually get applied don't pertain to every client. If you need to have something open for a client application to work, then you get dinged for having a port open or having an older version of TLS available."
"Pricing could be improved. There are limited options based on pricing for the government."
"From a compliance standpoint, they can include some more metrics and some specific compliances such as GDPR."
"It needs to be simplified and made more user-friendly for a non-technical person."
"The initial setup is not actually so complex but it feels complex because there are many add-ons. There are many options and my team needs to be aware of all of these changes happening on the backend which is a distraction."
"The documentation and implementation guides could be improved."
"I would like to see Test B functions at the application access level."
"I would like to see some AI on the back-end, just to assist with doing analysis and making recommendations."
"Dome9 should also support deployments that are on-premises and in a hybrid cloud."
"The price of this solution should be reduced so that it is more affordable to scale."
"It should capture more information in metadata including communication detail. Also, Internal IP addresses should not be tracked as this might be having some compliance issues."
"Automatic remediation requires read/write access. When providing read/write access to third-party applications, this can add risk. It should have some options of triggering API calls to the cloud platform, which in turn, can make the required changes."
"We were demotivated by the lack of native automation modules for the Terraform and Ansible tools."
"The main issue that we found with Dome9 is that we have a default rule set with better recommendations that we want to use. So, you do a clone of that rule set, then you do some tweaks and customizations, but there is a problem. When they activate the default rule set with the recommendations and new security measures, it doesn't apply the new security measures to your clones profile. Therefore, you need to clone the profile again. We are already writing a report to Check Point."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"I'm not privy to that information, but I know it's probably close to a million dollars a year."
"We are using the free version of the Azure Security Center."
"It is a very straightforward licensing model that is based on the number of assets you are discovering and managing with the solution."
"The licensing and costs are straightforward, as they have a baseline of 100 workloads (number of instances) within one license with no additional nor hidden charges. If you want to have 200 workloads under Dome9, then you need to take out two licenses for that. Also, it does not have any impact on cloud billing, as data is shared using the API call. This is well within the limit of free API calls provided by the cloud provider."
"I suggest that you pay attention to the product pricing because while there are no tricks, and the licensing model is transparent, the final numbers may surprise you."
"Right now, we have licenses on 500 machines, and they are not cheap."
"The pricing is tremendous and super cheap. It is shockingly cheap for what you get out of it. I am happy with that. I hope that doesn't get reported back and they increase the prices. I love the pricing and the licensing makes sense. It is just assets: The more stuff that you have, the more you pay."
"In the beginning, the price of Dome9 was cheap, whereas now it is not."
