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."

"The monitoring in the management console allows us to find out what is going wrong, and it gets reports even before the user reports it.""The most valuable feature is the endpoint protection system.""The most valuable feature is the centralized console, which can handle different products that we have."

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."

"There is plenty of room for improvement with this product, and it could start with platform metrics.""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."

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."

Top Answer: This solution clashes with Microsoft defender, which results in performance degradation on the machine. Technical support needs more local representation in India.

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.

Docker containers make it easy to develop, deploy, and deliver applications where containers can be deployed and brought down in a matter of seconds. This flexibility makes it very useful for DevOps to automate deployment of containers. Symantec Data Center Security: Server Advanced provides agentless Docker container protection that allows you to achieve the performance benefits of Docker without sacrificing security. Full application control enables administrator privilege de-escalation, patch mitigation, and protection against zero day threats in today's heterogeneous data centers.
