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

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.""This is a worldwide service and depending on the country, there will be different prices.""Security Center charges $15 per resource for any workload that you onboard into it. They charge per VM or per data-base server or per application. It's not like Microsoft 365 licensing, where there are levels like E3 and E5. Security Center is pretty straightforward.""There is a helpful cost-reducing option that allows you to integrate production subscriptions with non-production subscriptions.""Its pricing is a little bit high in terms of Azure Security Center, but the good thing is that we don't need to maintain and deploy it. So, while the pricing is high, it is native to Azure which is why we prefer using this tool.""I am not involved in this area. However, I believe its price is okay because even small customers are using Azure Security Center. I don't think it is very expensive.""The cost of the license is based on the subscriptions that you have."

Organizations are embracing multiple public cloud platforms, resulting in increased complexity of management which impacts security and risk. Additionally, the built-in security tools that come with various cloud platforms are unique to each, compounding the challenge of consistently managing risk across all clouds in a multi-cloud world. This challenge renders security operations time consuming and ineffective. As the attack surface expands, organizations need to protect from not only from risks of configuration and management of the application elements themselves, but also from risks originating via cloud application programming interfaces (APIs) and UIs.

FortiCWP offers security administrators and DevOps teams the ability to evaluate their cloud configuration security posture, detect potential threats originating from misconfiguration of cloud resources, analyze traffic across cloud resources (in and out of the cloud), and evaluate cloud configuration against best practices. It enables the ability to manage risk throughout multi-cloud infrastructures, provides regulatory compliance reporting, and integrates remediation into the cloud infrastructure lifecycle automation framework.
