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 dynamic workload identity creation, attestation, and assignment is the best feature. In addition, the application dependency map across heterogeneous environments for compliance is a striking feature.""It has helped us understand the dynamic topology of our containers, and manage security through the application of policies that our pipelines apply straight from Git.""The most valuable feature is that the rule set is managed and that it can be run on a regularly scheduled basis.""The runtime mechanism on the solution is very useful. It's got very good network mapping between containers. If you have more than one container, you can create a content data link between them.""The product is quite good for providing multi-clouds or cross-cloud security from a single-pane -of-glass.""I would say Twistlock is a fairly sophisticated tool.""One of the most valuable features is the compliance of RedLock, which we are using for any issues with security. It flags them and that's the primary objective of that feature.""I was looking for a vulnerability scanner and I was looking for one place in which I could find everything. This tool not only does vulnerability scanning, but it also gives me an asset management tool."

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 »

"More documentation with real-world use cases would be helpful.""I would like to see the inclusion of automated counter-attack, although this is probably illegal.""The pricing for the solution needs improvement.""The innovation side of the solution could be more efficient and more detailed.""Palo Alto should work on ease-of-use and the user-friendliness to be more competitive with some competing products.""In terms of improvement, there are some small things like hardening and making sure the Linux resources are deployed well but that's more at an operational level.""The feedback that we have given to the Palo Alto team is that the UI can be improved. When you press the "back" button on your browser from the Investigate tab, the query that you're working on just disappears. It won't keep the query on the "back" button.""We would like it to have more features from the risk and compliance perspectives."

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."

"The purchasing process was easy and quick. It is a very economical solution.""Our licensing fees are $18,000 USD per year.""One thing we're very pleased about is how the licensing model for Prisma is based on work resources. You buy a certain amount of work resources and then, as they enable new capabilities within Prisma, it just takes those work resource units and applies them to new features. This enables us to test and use the new features without having to go back and ask for and procure a whole new product, which could require going through weeks, and maybe months, of a procurement process.""The pricing and the licensing are both very fair... The biggest advice I would give in terms of costs would be to try to understand what the growth is going to look like. That's really been our biggest struggle, that we don't have an idea of what our future growth is going to be on the platform. We go from X number of licenses to Y number of licenses without a plan on how we're going to get from A to B, and a lot of that comes as a bit of a surprise. It can make budgeting a real challenge for it.""From my exposure so far, they have been really flexible on whatever your current state is, with a view to what the future state might be. There's no hard sell. They "get" the journey that you're on, and they're trying to help you embrace cloud security, governance, and compliance as you go."
