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

Check Point adds value with east-west protection in the data center.It is scalable. It's a cloud solution, so it's easy to implement and manage.I like how straightforward it is and simple it is to implement in the cloud.The stability is very good. It is easy to use, which makes it easy for the end user.The main benefit is that hackers can't steal information.It seems quite scalable. We don't anticipate any scaling issues. We have it deployed in the cloud.The most valuable features would be its ability to intercept phishing emails and emails laden with malware, viruses, false links, etc.Moving into the cloud without having to change a lot of our internal processes and retrain staff is one of the biggest benefits of this solution.

People implementing this solution are concerned with addressing a significant risk, and within the AWS realm, this tool does de-risk substantially.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.Dome9 wraps our FTP infrastructure with its network security configurations, and this also gives us the ability to monitor FTP activity.Gives us centralized firewall management for both Windows and Linux distros. Also provides a clear view of the security configurations and connections across environments (DMZ, external and internal networks).The user interface is responsive and quite intuitive; when selecting an object it automatically shows the relevant actions.Dome9 continues to be a major piece of our cloud security architecture and has given our senior leadership team a high degree of confidence in our ability to protect our cloud environment.We have more visibility than ever before, appreciating the valuable and proactive insight that we receive from the platform.The Compliance engine has helped put our auditors and senior executives at ease, as we can quickly and accurately measure ourselves against hundreds of compliance checks to include CIS benchmarks, PCI, and other best practices.

There is always room for improvement and growth.The product can still grow.I would like for them to develop the ability to add additional users within a pod, where it is round robin.We have used technical support, but their response time is very slow. It needs to be improved.Stability has been a pain point. I was going back and forth with my product engineer and project manager for a couple of months. I had the product in a demonstration mode and wasn't satisfied with the results initially. After a few alterations and a few revisions later, it is fine.I would like to see more focus on east-west traffic inspection and AWS.I have learned enough to make the product stable. However, the stability has some challenges.I would love it if they would do some work on the Postgres definition on the back-end.

I would like to see some AI on the back-end, just to assist with doing analysis and making recommendations.I would like to see Test B functions at the application access level.I’d like to see more integration with third-party tools. For example, it would be helpful to have an integration between Dome9 and ServiceNow to manage security incidents and security changes.I would like to see tighter integration with other compliance tools, like Chef Compliance, in addition to Inspector.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Having information stolen by a hacker would be more expensive than purchasing a license.Being able to keep the phishing campaigns out of my company has been ROI for me.Do a full feature evaluation (interactive) with a support person. That is what I did.

I would advise taking into account the existing number of devices and add a forecast of the number of devices to be added in the coming year or two, to obtain better pricing.​They support either annual licensing or hourly. At the time of our last negotiation, it was either one or the other, you could not mix or match. I would have liked to mix/match. ​
