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

Pros
Key features are the Software Vulnerability Assessment and the CSM, which is the configuration check.

This solution provides a DLP on the cloud and very few people have a scanning device for data at rest.Monitoring is the most valuable feature because we can easily monitor all kinds of stuff coming over the network. We can check the dashboard and work accordingly.Its hands-off security and the fact that we don't have to maintain it are the most valuable features.

Cons
Anything outside of the software vulnerability management and the CSM, things like the GhostPort, need some improvement. The dashboard is in beta. It looks really good, I wish it would come out of beta.In the CSM module the policies are really hard to work with it. It is not very flexible at all. I would suggest that they change that. Right now, the scan is based on the group that the server is in. What happens if the server is in multiple groups?Of all the advertised functions, I only find two things that really work in my environment, even though I wanted to use all of them. They're not flexible enough to be used.

I would like to see support for custom applications.One thing that would help is if we could get a guide. With Cisco, for example, you can just type the problem regarding your Cisco product and you will easily get your solution. In Palo Alto, however, it's not easy to find the solutions.They automatically update and they should give us time to fully understand what they're updating so that we can make sure it doesn't impact production.

Pricing and Cost Advice
CloudPassage is a little bit on the expensive side. So my suggestion is that the company lower its price point a wee bit or sell modules, separate them in modules, because I only find two things that are useful to me, yet I pay for four or five modules. It didn't seem like it was a fair deal.

The pricing for this solution is on the higher end.Actually the solution is very expensive. I don't know the particulars since the purchasing team dealt with it.
