Quotes From Members

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."

"It has been quite helpful to have the daily alerts coming to my email, as well as the Sev 1 Alerts... We just went through a SOX audit and those were pivotal.""We're using it on container to see when activity involving executables happens, and that's great.""Every other security tool we've looked is good at containers, or at Kubernetes, is good at AWS, or at instance monitoring. But nobody is good at tying all of those things together, and that's really where Threat Stack shines.""There has been a measurable decrease in the meantime to remediation... because we have so many different tech verticals already collated in one place, our ability to respond is drastically different than it used to be.""We like the ability of the host security module to monitor the processes running on our servers to help us monitor activity.""The rules are really great. They give us more visibility and control over what's being triggered. There's a large set of rules that come out-of-the-box. We can customize them and we can create our own rules based on the traffic patterns that we see.""With Threat Stack, we quickly identified some AWS accounts which had services that would potentially be exposed and were able to remediate them prior to release of products.""The number-one feature is the monitoring of interactive sessions on our Linux machines. We run an immutable environment, so that nothing is allowed to be changed in production... We're constantly monitoring to make sure that no one is violating that. Threat Stack is what allows us to do that."

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."

"The one thing that we know they're working on, but we don't have through the tool, is the application layer. As we move to a serverless environment, with AWS Fargate or direct Lambda, that's where Threat Stack does not have the capacity to provide feed. Those are areas that it's blind to now...""The solution’s ability to consume alerts and data in third-party tools (via APIs and export into S3 buckets) is moderate. They have some work to do in that area... The API does not mimic the features of the UI as far as reporting and pulling data out go. There's a big discrepancy there.""The user interface can be a little bit clunky at times... There's a lot of information that needs to be waded through, and the UI just isn't great.""The reports aren't very good. We've automated the report generation via the API and replaced almost all the reports that they generate for us using API calls instead.""I would like further support of Windows endpoint agents or the introduction of support for Windows endpoint agents.""The API - which has grown quite a bit, so we're still learning it and I can't say whether it still needs improvement - was an area that had been needing it.""They could give a few more insights into security groups and recommendations on how to be more effective. That's getting more into the AWS environment, specifically. I'm not sure if that's Threat Stack's plan or not, but I would like them to help us be efficient about how we're setting up security groups. They could recommend separation of VPCs and the like - really dig into our architecture. I haven't seen a whole lot of that and I think that's something that, right off the bat, could have made us smarter."

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."

More Cisco Tetration Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Pricing seems to be in line with the market structure. It's fine.""It is very expensive compared to some other products. The pricing is definitely high.""I'm happy with the amount that we spend for the product that we get and the overall service that we get. It's not cheap, but I'm still happy with the spend.""We find the licensing and pricing very easy to understand and a good value for the services provided.""It came in cheaper than Trend Micro when we purchased it a few years ago.""What we're paying now is somewhere around $15 to $20 per agent per month, if I recall correctly. The other cost we have is SecOps."

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: Thank you I’m not really interested in being sold to. I’m asking about what works, what doesn’t and pricing models. I don’t want any demos.
