Maurizio TestaSecurity Engineer/Architect at Telecom Italia
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"It has reduced the number of people on the network team along with the system engineer involved in the security process. So, it is valuable."
"From a distributed firewall perspective, it's a solid solution."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to create, develop, and deploy servers in minutes to hours, rather than days."
"The most valuable features for us at this early stage are the interface and the integration with existing VMware solutions."
"The most valuable features are security and dynamic routing."
"This is the most scalable product of its type."
"From a security standpoint, the customer was able to better secure critical workloads while routing L2/L3 worked normally, giving them more confidence that they would be ready for any potential security incident mitigation or outage (DR)."
"The most valuable features are stability and low cost."
"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."
"We would to have a reverse proxy. This would add great value to the solution."
"We would like better integration with the standards on the market. For example, with OSPF, their integration in NSX is very low. It's not a full OSPF integration. It is too thin from a protocol perspective."
"It could be cheaper!"
"Everybody needs a network to connect to, and VMware doesn't readily provide one."
"I would like to see automation capabilities in the deployment process."
"The training costs a minimum of $3,000, which is expensive and should be reduced."
"Traffic flow introspection topology visibility is definitely needed because at the moment, NSX-T lacks in this area."
"There are always issues integrating with Cisco."
"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."
"There is a license for this solution and there are extra features you can purchase."
"We can't go without NSX, so it's invaluable from this perspective."
"The solution is very expensive."
"The licensing fees are expensive and we pay on a yearly basis."
"It is an expensive product, but cheaper than some competing solutions."
"The price of this product is too high."
"This solution requires a licence."
"VMware NSX is expensive and everything is licensed. We have to pay for each individual feature."
"The price is based on the virtual desktop infrastructure(VDI) side and also is dependant on the size of the environment. The price is expensive and it could attract more purchasers in smaller organisations if it was reduced."
