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

Pros
The scalability is the best feature.The initial setup was very easy because it's like a Google platform as a service. It's just one button to set it up. The deployment took only a few minutes.Stability-wise, this solution is really good.Before using this solution, it was a lot of manual tasks and a lot of people participated in the process.

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 would say Twistlock is a fairly sophisticated tool.The product is quite good for providing multi-clouds or cross-cloud security from a single-pane -of-glass.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 most valuable feature is that the rule set is managed and that it can be run on a regularly scheduled basis.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 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.

Cons
It needs to support load balancing.There are some security issues, but it might just be because we are not up to speed yet as much as we should be and so we haven't found it in the documentation yet. That's why I don't want to confuse this. Still, it could be a little bit easier to understand and implement.The network configuration has to be simplified.I think that security is an important point, and there should be additional features for the evaluation of data in containers that will create a more secure environment for usage in multi-parent models.

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.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.Palo Alto should work on ease-of-use and the user-friendliness to be more competitive with some competing products.The innovation side of the solution could be more efficient and more detailed.The pricing for the solution needs improvement.I would like to see the inclusion of automated counter-attack, although this is probably illegal.More documentation with real-world use cases would be helpful.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Currently, it costs around $1000 per month which sorted our deployment. So once we get more clients, having a huge suffix, costs can go up.This is an open source solution, so there is no pricing or licensing.We are planning to use external support, and hire a commercial partner for it.

Our licensing fees are $18,000 USD per year.The purchasing process was easy and quick. It is a very economical solution.

Overview

Kubernetes Engine is a managed, production-ready environment for deploying containerized applications. It brings our latest innovations in developer productivity, resource efficiency, automated operations, and open source flexibility to accelerate your time to market.

The ability to quickly build and deploy global-scale applications has lead to the rapid adoption of public cloud infrastructure. Managing security at this scale hasn't kept up. Compounded by the accelerated development pace where DevOps teams sometimes push new releases into production daily, it’s no surprise security teams find themselves overwhelmed with lack of visibility, context and control despite the robust toolkits and capabilities offered by cloud service providers. Prisma Public Cloud redefines effective security and compliance management for today’s multi-cloud era.
