"The integration is very useful and very easy. You can have an API connection with any cloud and I'll be able to do both ways of communication with the help of APA.""The product offers very strong automation.

Cons
"They need to improve the batch console. It needs more capabilities. We are limited by the ones it provides...""The dashboard should be more user-friendly.""The cloud console has a lot of bugs and issues in the analysis part.""It's not simple.""They have different products, but if we wanted to take their protection and their EPR, then we would need to have two agents""It's not highly available, so you have to have a core server. If the primary server goes down, you need a new one. It's not available at the same time, however. It's not automatically swapped from one server to another.""The product detects too many false positives initially and it could integrate better with other security solutions."
