The most valuable feature is the virtual patching.The vulnerability scanning reduces false positives by quite a bit.The most valuable features are web security, email filtering, and content filtering.It has improved functions by bringing us complete security on our clients' virtual environment.It has a perfect SaaS which integrates with AWS, offering flexibility to deploy quickly and easily in the cloud.Deep Security enables us to bridge the gap between patching windows using the Virtual Patching feature. This allows us to make sure full patching is tested properly in our testing environments before rollout.It provides a comprehensive feature set and a strong security baseline for us with integrations into other security tools.There are compliance issues for legacy applications and after applying OS security patches. The product's HIPS (Host Intrusion Prevention System) modules do the job for you automatically, without any downtime.

Cons
The solution can be a little more user-friendly and it can be more affordable.I would like to see analytics, big data.I find that there have been issues in the past year with the solution hanging. It freezes often.All the thresholds that need to be configured should be included in the default so that user will not forget or misconfigure.

When implementing this solution, sometimes we have challenges with SQL migration.The client can show as offline sometimes, and that becomes a bit difficult for troubleshooting. We end up basically redeploying the client. This is something that could be improved in the future.The support for email protection can be improved.It needs better global visibility of the virtual environment.I would like them to add EDR features, moving away from traditional signature-based anti-malware.The default reports provided don't provide much insight.I would rate tech support in the range of six to eight out of 10. Time to provide solution could be improved.It needs to improve its integration with a lot of other products. This should be in the road map because we have a lot of SaaS-based appliances which are not connected with each other.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Some of our customers complain about the cost of this solution.The cost is approximately six thousand Qatari Riyal ($1650 USD) per user.Purchasing this solution through the AWS Marketplace was secure and quick. AWS has good prices for a good product.The training needs improvement. It is expensive (classroom training), and it is often hard to find answers by yourself using the documentation.The AWS licensing model is scalable and easy to use, but could do with tiered discounts. I am not sure how well this model will scale when we start to use Auto Scaling with AWS resources.We are an original partner with AWS, so a couple of customers chose to directly take it from AWS Marketplace. A couple of customers will want us to take care of the billing. So, it's a mixed type of reaction that we receive from the customer.The price is reasonably good as compared to other products into the market.Purchasing on the AWS Marketplace is like shopping on Amazon Prime.
