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

Pros
The solution is very scalable, especially when connected to the cloud resources.That is primarily because I've seen increased rules. It's kind of caught us a little off guard. With GuardiCore, I have had to deal with their technical support and engineering team in Israel. They are amazing. They are very quick to adapt.

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
The dashboard needs improvement. It should be more flexible so that I can easily see what I want or need to see.Clients would like to see that the security policies of GuardiCore can continue to be comparable to all the major firewall players out there.

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.

Overview

Guardicore Centra is a comprehensive data center and cloud security solution that delivers the simplest way to apply micro-segmentation controls to reduce the attack surface and detect and control breaches within east-west traffic. It provides deep visibility into application dependencies and enforces network and process-level policies to protect critical applications.

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.
