ShieldX Valuable Features

MichaelProcyshyn
IT Director at Park Holidays
The most valuable feature is the automatic scaling. With its microservices, it scales both up and down, depending on traffic and throughput. The traffic through our website depends on holiday bookings. It's very quiet in November through January, and then our traffic picks up quite rapidly and, at our peak, we will take in excess of a million pounds of business a day through our website. The UI was also one of the huge selling points. My web development manager was blown away with the detail and the granularity that you can get out of the UI. It is a very strong and informative UI, with the amount of data it provides. Uptime on the system has been 648 days and we do very little to it because it self-updates and alerts. It does everything that we need it to do, so the administration side of it is zero. One of the beauties about ShieldX is that it's such a good "fire-and-forget" product. View full review »

* It is good for its cost. * It is very easy to use. * It is very easy to scale. * It is easy to implement and doesn't take long. * They have a good support team with training and videos on different things. I create CIDR groups or workload names for either IPs or servers. In the CIDR groups, I have either multiple IP addresses or I am just doing it by the IP range. If I create a CIDR group type, then I tie an ACL control to what devices I want. This is where I am spending most of my time, creating these groups and tying them down to where they only talks to certain servers. I am also finding out that there are more things talking to each other than I originally thought, which is good. I thought one server was only speaking to these set of IPs, but they are actually talking to quite a bit of IPs. What I like about it now is that it has a single pane of glass to view our networks and groups. Also, in Vmware, it creates its own distributed switches instead of using my current VLAN distributed switches. View full review »
