When implementing this solution, sometimes we have challenges with SQL migration.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.The support for email protection can be improved.It needs better global visibility of the virtual environment.I would like them to add EDR features, moving away from traditional signature-based anti-malware.The default reports provided don't provide much insight.I would rate tech support in the range of six to eight out of 10. Time to provide solution could be improved.It needs to improve its integration with a lot of other products. This should be in the road map because we have a lot of SaaS-based appliances which are not connected with each other.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Some of our customers complain about the cost of this solution.The cost is approximately six thousand Qatari Riyal ($1650 USD) per user.Purchasing this solution through the AWS Marketplace was secure and quick. AWS has good prices for a good product.The training needs improvement. It is expensive (classroom training), and it is often hard to find answers by yourself using the documentation.The AWS licensing model is scalable and easy to use, but could do with tiered discounts. I am not sure how well this model will scale when we start to use Auto Scaling with AWS resources.We are an original partner with AWS, so a couple of customers chose to directly take it from AWS Marketplace. A couple of customers will want us to take care of the billing. So, it's a mixed type of reaction that we receive from the customer.The price is reasonably good as compared to other products into the market.Purchasing on the AWS Marketplace is like shopping on Amazon Prime.
