Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Dome9 has improved our organization; we have a centralized view of all of our assets, our visible assets our ECs, our inventories. And then all the policies are centralized, and it is easier to manage because everything is one component console.""People implementing this solution are concerned with addressing a significant risk, and within the AWS realm, this tool does de-risk substantially.""All of the features are very useful in today's market.""The reporting against compliance is an important feature that helps you comply with policies and standards within your organization.""Assets Management as it provide complete visibility of our workload inkling EC2 instance or Serverless""It helps us to analyze vulnerabilities way before they get installed in production and the web. It gives us more security in the production environment.""This product provides a really nice visualization of the infrastructure, including network topology, firewalls, etc.""On Dome9, you can have reports on compliance, users created, and EAM access to the cloud infrastructure. For example, if some machine is exposed to the Internet, importing and exporting to the Internet when it shouldn't, we get immediate alerts if someone does this type of configuration by mistake. Dome9 is very important because AWS doesn't protect us for this. It is the client's responsibility to make sure that we don't export things to the Internet. This solution helps us ensure that we comply with our security measures."

"The product is a combination of management and monitoring from the same interface.""It would normally take us a handful of days to install one FortiGate instance on one site. But with this technology, zero-touch deployment, we need just one hour or maybe as little as 30 minutes to install one site. It is much more efficient.""The user interface is very easy to navigate.""The most valuable features are the centralized management of the firewalls.""A fully integrated solution.""We look at the traffic to segment the network and it improves and increases the performance. When we have a mobile connection and local laptops are on the same network. We have seen a big performance upgrade.""Fortinet has the option of synchronization in the cloud, so you can manage everything if you have a cloud account.""For the whole security fabric from Fortinet, with a simple click you can see if some workstations or services are affected by an attack. You can really easily quarantine it, check the solution, and fix it."

Cons
"I would like to see Test B functions at the application access level.""I would like to see some AI on the back-end, just to assist with doing analysis and making recommendations.""Dome9 should also support deployments that are on-premises and in a hybrid cloud.""The price of this solution should be reduced so that it is more affordable to scale.""It should capture more information in metadata including communication detail. Also, Internal IP addresses should not be tracked as this might be having some compliance issues.""Automatic remediation requires read/write access. When providing read/write access to third-party applications, this can add risk. It should have some options of triggering API calls to the cloud platform, which in turn, can make the required changes.""We were demotivated by the lack of native automation modules for the Terraform and Ansible tools.""The main issue that we found with Dome9 is that we have a default rule set with better recommendations that we want to use. So, you do a clone of that rule set, then you do some tweaks and customizations, but there is a problem. When they activate the default rule set with the recommendations and new security measures, it doesn't apply the new security measures to your clones profile. Therefore, you need to clone the profile again. We are already writing a report to Check Point."

More Dome9 Cons »

"The areas that need improvement are implemenation and support. In terms of implementation, it mainly needs clear documentation.""Troubleshooting for Fortinet products is more difficult than competing products like Cisco and Palo Alto.""Regional support in African countries needs to be improved.""It's a difficult process to transfer one interface from one virtual domain to another.""Can be difficult to configure.""Performance issues should be improved. We have problems when we have more mobile connections than local devices. Most of us have two to three devices.""The response times from technical support need to be a bit quicker.""Fortinet is releasing quite a lot of new versions and I would say that most of the versions are not well tested before they're pushed out. Even the new versions sometimes are a bit buggy before it's all correct."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is a very straightforward licensing model that is based on the number of assets you are discovering and managing with the solution.""The licensing and costs are straightforward, as they have a baseline of 100 workloads (number of instances) within one license with no additional nor hidden charges. If you want to have 200 workloads under Dome9, then you need to take out two licenses for that. Also, it does not have any impact on cloud billing, as data is shared using the API call. This is well within the limit of free API calls provided by the cloud provider.""I suggest that you pay attention to the product pricing because while there are no tricks, and the licensing model is transparent, the final numbers may surprise you.""Right now, we have licenses on 500 machines, and they are not cheap."

"Fortinet FortiManager is not expensive at all if you compare it with other vendors like Check Point and Cisco. Fortinet products are the least expensive on the market in the category of firewalls.""The licensing costs depend on how many devices you want to use.""In comparison with other products, the price of FortiManager is reasonable."
