Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

"The most valuable feature is the SecOps because they have our back and they help us with the reports... It's like having an extension of your team. And then, it grows with you.""Technical support is very helpful."

Cons
"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."

"They could give a few more insights into security groups and recommendations on how to be more effective. That's getting more into the AWS environment, specifically. I'm not sure if that's Threat Stack's plan or not, but I would like them to help us be efficient about how we're setting up security groups. They could recommend separation of VPCs and the like - really dig into our architecture. I haven't seen a whole lot of that and I think that's something that, right off the bat, could have made us smarter.""The compliance and governance need improvement."

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."

"What we're paying now is somewhere around $15 to $20 per agent per month, if I recall correctly. The other cost we have is SecOps."
