Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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
"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."
