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

Pros
You need to make an architectural runway before actually starting to implement Docker Compose, especially in a distributed environment.The initial setup was really easy and the deployment was fast and straightforward.It is a compact, complete solution that performs well.This solution has improved our organization with the agility, microservices approach, and scalable solutions for distributed systems.Docker is very helpful for taking the code from development and applying it to the end user.Now it is easier to set up the development environment and also to test the applications on the pipelines.The most valuable aspect is the excellent support. In addition, the billing system is really easy to understand.

The most valuable feature is the SecOps because they have our back and they help us with the reports... It's like having an extension of your team. And then, it grows with you.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.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.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.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.

Cons
I find Docker easier to use, but I gave it to an inexperienced developer and it took him a lot of time to understand.I would also like to see more features inside Docker as well as more integration with different solutions.The initial setup was quite complex.The orchestration and tracing should be improved.It would be very nice to have a GUI that can be used by any administrator, and not just people who have experience with Docker.The solution would benefit in improvements made to the storage, cleaning up information from the disk, and reading logs.I think this solution needs better security due to more risks from the outside world.Sometimes the basic support is a bit difficult if you have a firewall and cloud servers behind the firewall and then try to implement the backup solution, it is a bit difficult to do by yourself.

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.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.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 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 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.Some features do not work as expected.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We use the free version of this solution.The community edition does not require a license and is completely free.The pricing and licensing really depends on what your needs are. You could be paying $100 a month to $100,000. It depends on the needs you have from the solution, and the agreement you make.It is more costly than other products, but it is worth every penny.

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.It came in cheaper than Trend Micro when we purchased it a few years ago.It is very expensive compared to some other products. The pricing is definitely high.Pricing seems to be in line with the market structure. It's fine.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 is a cost-effective choice versus other solutions on the market.

Overview

Docker provides an integrated technology suite that enables development and IT operations teams to build, ship, and run distributed applications anywhere. Docker allows you to package an application with all of its dependencies into a standardized unit for software development. Docker containers wrap up a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries, anything you can install on a server. This guarantees that it will always run the same, regardless of the environment it is running in.

Threat Stack is purpose-built to support organizations running in the cloud and the unique requirements of a cloud-based or hybrid infrastructure. In order to protect your sensitive data (the crown jewels) you need to know who is doing what, where and when – at all times. With continuous cloud security monitoring and up-to-the-second alerting, you’ll always have the complete visibility you need to detect anomalous activity and know what occurred immediately.
