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.

The option to generate phishing emails has proven to be very valuable in understanding the behavior of users.It contains almost all the available exploits and payloads.It's not possible to do penetration testing without being very proficient in Metasploit.

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.

Metasploit cannot be installed on a machine with an antivirus.It is necessary to add some training materials and a tutorial for beginners.The initial setup was a bit "tweaky" for the open-source version.

Overview

GuardiCore enables you to spot breaches that other security measures have missed and provides visibility into east-west traffic that up to now has been a considerable blind spot. So you can respond to breaches in a fraction of the time traditional technologies normally take while eliminating the “analysis paralysis” associated with log data overload and false positives.

By focusing only on suspicious activity that warrants investigation, GuardiCore detects breaches in real time and automatically triggers mitigation.

GuardiCore catches attacks earlier in the kill chain, before they can do costly damage.

Attackers are always developing new exploits and attack methods—Metasploit penetration testing software helps you use their own weapons against them. Utilizing an ever-growing database of exploits, you can safely simulate real-world attacks on your network to train your security team to spot and stop the real thing.
