Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"A complete and powerful micro-segmentation solution.""The most valuable feature of the solution is that we don't have to do packet captures on the network.""The product offers great visibility into the network so we can enforce security measures.""The most valuable feature of this solution is security.""The solution offers 100% telemetry coverage. The telemetry you collect is not sampled, it's not intermittent. It's complete. You see everything in it, including full visibility of all activities on your endpoints and in your network.""The most valuable feature is micro-segmentation, which is the most important with respect to visibility."

"That is primarily because I've seen increased rules. It's kind of caught us a little off guard. With GuardiCore, I have had to deal with their technical support and engineering team in Israel. They are amazing. They are very quick to adapt.""The solution is very scalable, especially when connected to the cloud resources.""Its deception features are great, providing a rich telemetry of lured origins, and are a great resource for any active defense strategy.""This tool greatly helps in understanding the footprint of the attacks.""The interface and dashboard are amazing.""The real bonus is the fact that we can secure applications, all the way down to the individual services, on each host. It's actually more granular security than we can get out of a traditional firewall.""We like the centralized management of the firewalls. Until we installed Guardicore Centra, we managed all our firewalls individually, so making changes was complicated, difficult, and time-consuming.""From day one, you get threat intelligence. It will immediately block active threats, which has been useful."

Cons
"It has an uninviting interface.""I'd like to see better documentation for advanced features. The documentation is fairly basic. I would also like to see better integration with other applications.""The emailed notifications are either hard to find or they are not available. Search capabilities can be improved.""The interface is really helpful for technical people, but it is not user-friendly.""The multi-tenancy, redundancy, backup and restore functionalities, as well as the monitoring aspects of the solution, need improvement. The solution offers virtually no enterprise-grade possibility for monitoring.""There is some overlap between Cisco Tetration and AppDynamics and I need to have a single pane of glass, rather than have to jump between different tools."

"Clients would like to see that the security policies of GuardiCore can continue to be comparable to all the major firewall players out there.""The dashboard needs improvement. It should be more flexible so that I can easily see what I want or need to see.""Needs more customization of honeypots and a vaster catalog of systems able to be mimicked.""The product needs a few features like enhanced user policies and payload-level inspection to improve the offering.""The long-term management of the security policies could be improved with some kind of automation platform, something like Chef or Puppet or Ansible, to help you manage the policies after day-one... to then manage the policies and changes to those policies, going forward, through some type of automation process is not turning out to be really easy.""Sometimes, the speed needs improvement, especially when it comes to the generation of maps, where it can be a bit slow.""The maps could go a bit faster. They are useful but slightly slow.""In our version, when using the terminal server, we cannot exclude user tasks for each session."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Pricing depends on the scope of the application and the features. Larger installations save more.""It is not cheap and pricing may limit scalability.""The price is based on how many computers you're going to install it on."

"GuardiCore has made some new changes to the license now. We've seen monthly and annual licenses based on a subscription. We have a few clients that pay anywhere from $25,000 a year.""Compared to the pricing we were seeing from both Illumio and Edgewise, Guardicore was very competitive.""Guardicore Centra provides better value for money than NSX, was the other solution that we looked at, which was too expensive for what it does.""This is not a cheap solution but you have to consider the bigger picture, which is what it is giving you."
