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.

The solution is very scalable, especially when connected to the cloud resources.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.

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.

The dashboard needs improvement. It should be more flexible so that I can easily see what I want or need to see.Clients would like to see that the security policies of GuardiCore can continue to be comparable to all the major firewall players out there.

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.

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.

GuardiCore enables you to spot breaches that other security measures have missed and provides visibility into east-west traffic that up to now has been a considerable blind spot. So you can respond to breaches in a fraction of the time traditional technologies normally take while eliminating the “analysis paralysis” associated with log data overload and false positives.

By focusing only on suspicious activity that warrants investigation, GuardiCore detects breaches in real time and automatically triggers mitigation.

GuardiCore catches attacks earlier in the kill chain, before they can do costly damage.
