ShieldX Room for Improvement

Branden Emia
Senior Systems Engineer at Larry H. Miller Management Corporation
Since we are just rolling it out i cant really say much of what needs to be improved or not at this time. However, I do know that they have made improvements since we have first rolled out the product which has been great. One of the improvements has been its own distributed switch creation group where now all VLANs that is micro-segmented are in instead of having it in your DS/standard switch groups. We are having some issues with their LDAP and integrating it with the Active Directory. We can't seem to set it up. I have been working with the ShieldX technical support on this, but I would like a better way to set this up. When I put in any credentials, it fails. This is possibly due to how our tiering is set up for our protective groups. However, we tried to do this process through the API and still received the same error. I don't feel like I am using the product to its fullest extent. I think one feature that I would like to see in the near future is having the application integrate with a SAML identity provider like Okta. View full review »
