Guardicore Centra Initial Setup

The initial setup was straightforward in terms of time to deploy. With knowledge transfer, four hours was a good timeframe, it was complete in less than a day. For reporting and analytics, there's a lot of features and functionality, but within a day the clients were able to get acclimated quickly. They're satisfied with that. The learning curve on deploying security policies was very low. Those are easy to deploy. Within an hour they were deploying security policies. The ability of GuardiCore to learn the East-West traffic is excellent, within an hour, it was reporting. I tested the first deployment of GuardiCore four years ago. I left it automated for a full week and it learned everything. Today it's 500% faster, within hours it sees everything. The ideal implementation strategy that we found that works would be for the client to be initially engaged in a proof of concept demonstration. This allows GuardiCore to set up the system on the client side before purchase. That allows the client and the team to see the benefits of it, learn how to use the product, get the reporting, get the analytics, etc. Those clients that did that, once they decided to buy it, it was literally like flipping a switch. Those were the easiest ones. The best use case is to engage GuardiCore for a POC before to justify and quantify the purchase, then activate and deploy. It takes less than a day. View full review »
