Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""The audit feature is the most valuable for compliance reasons. It gives you a full view of the whole environment, no matter how many accounts you have in AWS or Azure. You have it all under one umbrella.""I love the work involved in maintaining and scaling security services and configurations across multiple public clouds using this solution, versus using native native cloud security controls. It is so much better. The different cloud platforms all have their own way that they handle a lot of the stuff that Dome9 handles. Even within their platform, they are in a lot of disparate places, e.g., in AWS, there are five different tools. You have to jump between them to get the same information that you can just pull in automatically on Dome9, which is just one platform. We are using multiple platforms, so that makes it even more complicated and time consuming if you had to just rely on them to get all of your information. Whereas, it's all just summarized and put together on the Dome9 end."

"The most valuable features are vulnerability detection and the scanning capability to enable identification of vulnerabilities across our network.""What I like about Qualys VM is the dashboard presentation. It's very good.""It's a good product. After the scan our internet works well. It scans our security posture.""It is very easy to use and there are lots of options. We can usually easily go through it and all of the things we want to configure, and we can configure everything to our specifications very easily.""The initial setup was good. We didn't have any problems with it.""Technical support is great and we've never really had a problem.""The features that are most valuable are the identification, scan features, and the identification of vulnerabilities.""Great web application security for scanning."

Cons
"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.""The accuracy of its remediation is a 7.5 out of 10. Before, I would have given it a ten but now, to handle remediation for fully qualified domain names, it's not working as it did in the past. We're finding some difficulties there.""The biggest thing is the documentation aspect of Dome9 is a little lacking. They were purchased by Check Point about a year and a half to two years ago. When they integrated into Check Point's support system, a lot of the documentation that they had previously got mangled in the transition, e.g., linking to stuff on the Dome9 website that no longer exists. There are still a lot of spaces with incomplete links and stuff that is not as fully explained as it could be."

"I would like to see this solution more developed and competitive in the Cloud space.""The customer support is very bad.""The reporting needs improvement. It should generate much more stuff like field reports.""Sometimes we face a problem with accessing the tool and not getting an expected result. From a technology point of view, they need to look into this.""The ability to manage user accounts and give rights to the operator to know about abnormalities of applications is something that needs improvement.""We are moving away from Qualys to Defender ATP because I find that Defender ATP is much better at prioritizing the vulnerabilities that I should be looking at.""I would like to see more accuracy in detections, better reporting capabilities, and better dashboard download capabilities.""Could use additional security for the app."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""Licensing and costs are straightforward, as they have a baseline of 100 workloads within one license and no additional charges."

"They have recently changed the pricing model, which is now better than it was before.""It is different for every company, but for us, it's every three years.""Qualys is cheaper and more affordable than other solutions.""The pricing and licensing for Qualys could be improved."
