Sr. Manager IT Operations at a tech vendor with 5,001-10,000 employees
Jan 16 2020

What is most valuable?

RedLock is quite good for providing multi-clouds or cross-cloud security.

How has it helped my organization?

It has not been implemented, but Prisma or Dome9 will provide us with better cloud security and less administration time for our cloud instances.

What needs improvement?

In our testing, we have found the Check Point product CloudGuard Dome9 to be more user-friendly at this point. Palo Alto Prisma's interface was not as user-friendly. Palo Alto should work on this part… more»

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

We have been using the native security solutions from each of the clouds or cloud service partners we deal with, but they have limited functionality. That is why we began to look into other options.

What other advice do I have?

The advice I would give to someone seriously considering these cloud solution products is to be careful with procedures you use while testing them. During the setup phase, there were not many… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not use any specific or dedicated cloud security product before evaluating the options we chose to review. Currently, we do not have any specific product that we purchased specifically for… more»

What needs improvement?

In terms of improvement, there are some small things like hardening and making sure the Linux resources are deployed well but that's more at an operational level. Day-to-day, we do find a lot of issues but having a tool to help us with them is what we want because manually, it's not feasible for us. Other than that, we not really looking for any other add-ons or plug-ins because that was our core problem.

What other advice do I have?

I would say Twistlock is a fairly sophisticated tool. It's not the most user-friendly so if somebody wants to use it for their deployment, their firm, they need to have the right people on your team to know how to use it because it's not a plug and play kind of software, like Aqua Security which is a little more plug and play. I think it's easier, more user-friendly, and has a more flexible kind of deployment. If you can configure it well, Twistlock is a lot better in providing you real-time statistics than Aqua Security. I would rate it an eight out of ten. I recommend two months of POC in… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that the rule set is managed and that it can be run on a regularly scheduled basis.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution will ensure that we've got a more secure environment, mitigating any sort of bad actors coming in and either destroying or disrupting the environment.

What needs improvement?

The pricing for the solution needs improvement.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Our licensing fees are $18,000 USD per year. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.

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

We did not use another solution prior to this one.

What other advice do I have?

This is a product for which I had a very specific need, and my security partner recommended it. This product is one of the leaders. I would, however, suggest that you do a… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated the Dome9 solution in addition to this one. RedLock was selected based on Rocus' recommendation.

What is most valuable?

The dynamic workload identity creation, attestation, and assignment is the best feature. In addition, the application dependency map across heterogeneous environments for compliance is a striking feature. It integrates quite well with the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Aporeto has accelerated our client's expansion to the cloud. With Aporeto, they have secured their Linux workloads on any infrastructure with end-to-end encryption and have a path for modernizing with a security layer that is… more»

What needs improvement?

More documentation with real-world use cases would be helpful. Another useful feature would be greater transparency and visibility into the security checks being implemented.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The purchasing process was easy and quick. It is a very economical solution. We chose to procure this solution via AWS Marketplace because that's where we get all other solutions and to make sure it's supported by AWS.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it as a nine out of ten, due to its cloud-facing features which fit in nicely with the whole cloud ecosystem.

What is most valuable?

The runtime mechanism on the solution is very useful. It's got very good network mapping between containers. If you have more than one container, you can create a content data link between them.

How has it helped my organization?

We have three containers in our organization. Two were legacy containers and we added a third. The solution helped with our DevOps pipeline and allowed us to inspect and analyze the product.

What needs improvement?

I'm not sure about areas for improvement on the solution, however, I do think the compliance and dashboarding could be better. The innovation side of the solution could be more efficient and more detailed.

What other advice do I have?

We use the cloud deployment model. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is for container security and monitoring.

How has it helped my organization?

It has helped us understand the dynamic topology of our containers and manage security through the application of policies that our pipelines apply straight from Git.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the automated forensics.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see the inclusion of automated counter-attack, although this is probably illegal.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than one year.

Prisma Cloud by Palo Alto Networks Questions

What is Prisma Cloud by Palo Alto Networks ?

The ability to quickly build and deploy global-scale applications has lead to the rapid adoption of public cloud infrastructure. Managing security at this scale hasn't kept up. Compounded by the accelerated development pace where DevOps teams sometimes push new releases into production daily, it’s no surprise security teams find themselves overwhelmed with lack of visibility, context and control despite the robust toolkits and capabilities offered by cloud service providers. Prisma Public Cloud redefines effective security and compliance management for today’s multi-cloud era.
