The initial setup is a bit complex in that it takes a lot of time. In order to get the product to work as you need it to, there is a lot of configuration required.

The information in the dashboards is not in real-time. Maybe they have a delay of one hour in the network. They have to improve that. It should be in real-time.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've only been using the solution for two months or so. It hasn't been too long.

The solution is very good for securing your endpoints. It's stable. We haven't had any issues so far. It doesn't crash or freeze. It's not buggy. There aren't glitches. It's good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not previously use a different solution.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup and implementation are not straightforward. It was complex and time-consuming.

We had to change the way that we navigate things and we needed to install the client on all of the computers. However, it needs a lot of configuration to do the things that we wanted to do.

The full setup and deployment took about one month to complete in total.

Only five people are needed for deployment and maintenance.

What about the implementation team?

We had assistance with the implementation. We had a reseller that assisted us, as well as the provider. Overall, our experience, while working with them, was positive.

We pay a licensing fee of $10,000 on a yearly basis.

There are no costs beyond the standard licensing fees.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this product, we looked at Zscaler as an option. This solution, according to reviews, seemed to offer more benefits, and therefore we chose to go with it.

What other advice do I have?

We are just a customer and an end-user. We don't have a business relationship with the company.

I'm not sure which version of the solution we're using.

It's a good solution for securing endpoints.

Overall, we've been satisfied with the product. I would rate it at a nine out of ten.

Allows you to consolidate and eliminate multiple technologies and monitor and govern all the traffic

Pros and Cons

  • "It is for secure web trafficking, and it is doing what it needs to do. It allows customers to consolidate and eliminate multiple technologies onto Netskope and just kind of turn the dial and use more features, such as CASB, VPN. SWG is another feature. You can monitor and govern all the traffic."
  • "Cost competitiveness is its area of improvement. They will have to figure out how can they strategically price it because there are a few players in the game who have been doing it for a long time. They will have to figure out how to go to market on the pricing."
