I do not like that all of the data is stored on the cloud.When you want to cover yourself for scalability, you will be charged for the number you place on the scan itself.It is more expensive vs. other products on the market.The only improvement I can think of is on the implementation side. At times it is a bit slow.They have integrated with other third parties, but it is still not viable.When tested on Zero day, there were errors.Improve the API speed.Make some minimal dashboard improvements.

The licensing costs for this solution are approximately $100,000 US, and I think that covers everything.We're able to save because we don't have to employ more staff members to help wit ht he scheduling of the scans, running the reports or sending them out to the systems owners. That alone is a big ROI for us.It is slightly more expensive than other solutions in the same sphere.
