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

Pros

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."

Cons
"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."

More Cisco Secure Workload Cons »

"This solution clashes with Microsoft defender, which results in performance degradation on the machine.""They need to develop a more flexible product that can be scaled such that it fits well into a small business or a bigger, enterprise-level solution.""Could have better reporting capabilities and better support.""The support is very bad. They're not fast at all. Trend Micro's support is much better."
