We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We were able to see what devices are talking to each other, giving us more visibility."
"It has helped us tighten our security posture. Now, staff can only access things that they should be accessing."
"The most valuable feature is the automatic scaling. With its microservices, it scales both up and down, depending on traffic and throughput."
"The UI was also one of the huge selling points. My web development manager was blown away with the detail and the granularity that you can get out of the UI. It is a very strong and informative UI, with the amount of data it provides."
"The most valuable features are web security, email filtering, and content filtering."
"The vulnerability scanning reduces false positives by quite a bit."
"The most valuable feature is the virtual patching."
"In terms of valuable features, I would say its intrusion prevention. Each and every IP connecting to the server gets scanned so we know everyone who is accessing our server and we can block whichever IP's do not belong to us at the firewall."
"The initial setup was straightforward and we didn't have any problem with it."
"This product offers good protection against many types of malware."
"Automated virtual patching is a good feature."
"It integrates well with the cloud; for example, AWS, and Google Cloud Provider."
"I would like better reports and in-depth reporting."
"We are having some issues with their LDAP and integrating it with the Active Directory. We can't seem to set it up."
"There should be a bit more customer care, with regular review meetings on it or regular reports. It would be nice to have a quarterly or biannual review of what ShieldX has blocked."
"The support for email protection can be improved."
"The client can show as offline sometimes, and that becomes a bit difficult for troubleshooting. We end up basically redeploying the client. This is something that could be improved in the future."
"When implementing this solution, sometimes we have challenges with SQL migration."
"As for what could be improved, I think it should come with an XDR facility without any extra cost. They're always releasing new features, but we need to pay extra for them."
"The situation with the currency in Turkey makes this solution a little bit on the expensive side, and if it were lowered then it would be more competitive."
"They need to build in a central console because central integration is not very good right now."
"Requires simplification, a fair amount of trouble shooting required."
"The problem with this solution is that if you go on large sites you have to have an external database, which would increase the cost."
"For other security professions who are looking for something which is low in cost that does microsegmentation, they should look at ShieldX. It might not be the big name out there, but it does everything that you are looking for in microsegmentation at a very low price."
"For a three-year deal we paid £55,000 plus tax... But, and this is a big "but," this was over two years ago. ShieldX had only just hit the market. We were the first company in Europe to buy ShieldX."
"The cost is approximately six thousand Qatari Riyal ($1650 USD) per user."
"Some of our customers complain about the cost of this solution."
"It's more expensive than other solutions, such as Sophos and Kaspersky, as an endpoint solution."
"The solution is considerably cheaper than other similar solutions."
