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

Pros
"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.""Scalability is its most valuable feature.""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.""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."

"This solution can protect Layer 3, Layer 4 and Layer 7 attacks of applications for us.""It allows me to see all the traffic on my network.""I find the interface easy to use."

Cons
"It is highly scalable, but there is a limitation that it is only available on Cisco devices.""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.""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 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."

More Cisco Tetration Cons »

"I find that there have been issues in the past year with the solution hanging. It freezes often.""I would like to see analytics, big data.""The solution can be a little more user-friendly and it can be more affordable."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is a bit higher than we anticipated.""The price is outrageous. If you have money to throw at the product, then do it.""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."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: The most valuable feature is micro-segmentation, which is the most important with respect to visibility.
Top Answer: The price is based on how many installation of software sensors you're going to install it on.
Top Answer: There is some overlap between Cisco Tetration and AppDynamics and there are few DC tools, It would be great to have a single pane of glass, rather than have to jump between different tools.
Top Answer: Arbor would be the best bid, apart from Arbor, Palo Alto and Fortinet have good solutions. As this is an ISP, I would prefer Arbor.

Overview

Cisco Tetration offers holistic workload protection for multicloud data centers by enabling a zero-trust model using segmentation. This approach allows you to identify security incidents faster, contain lateral movement and reduce your attack surface. Its infrastructure-agnostic approach supports both on-premises and public cloud workloads.

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are ever-evolving and use a variety of technologies. To successfully combat these attacks, you need a dynamic, multi-layered security solution. FortiDDoS protects from both known and zero day attacks with very low latency. It’s easy to deploy and manage, and includes comprehensive reporting and analysis tools.
