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."

"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."

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."

"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."

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."

"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."
