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

Pros
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 of this solution is security.The product offers great visibility into the network so we can enforce security measures.The most valuable feature of the solution is that we don't have to do packet captures on the network.A complete and powerful micro-segmentation solution.Instead of proving that all the access control lists are in place and all the EPGs are correct, we can just point the auditor to a dashboard and point out that there aren't any escaped conversations. It saves an enormous, enormous amount of time.Scalability is its most valuable feature.By using Tetration insight, we are able to get the latency on our level accounts and we can determine whatever the issue is with the application latency itself.

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.

Cons
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.The interface is really helpful for technical people, but it is not user-friendly.The emailed notifications are either hard to find or they are not available. Search capabilities can be improved.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.It has an uninviting interface.They should scale down the hardware a bit. The initial hardware investment is two million dollars so it's a price point problem. The issue with the price comes from the fact that you have to have it with enormous storage and enormous computes.It is not so easy to use and configure. It needs a bunch of further resources to work, which is mainly the biggest downside of it. The deployment is huge.It is highly scalable, but there is a limitation that it is only available on Cisco devices.

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
It is not cheap and pricing may limit scalability.Pricing depends on the scope of the application and the features. Larger installations save more.The price is outrageous. If you have money to throw at the product, then do it.The pricing is a bit higher than we anticipated.

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. ​
