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."
"Virtual patching is one of the key features, which is executed with their IPS."
"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."
"The firewall configuration should have been automated based on the understanding of the application, utilities, and protocols."
"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."
"It's a slightly expensive product."
