What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for us is the integration with DLP.

How has it helped my organization?

It gives us visibility into how the data is being used within our cloud environment. It shows the flow of information, and in our case, it has to with documentation that… more»

What needs improvement?

The biggest challenge we have with McAfee is their cross-cloud support. They tend to lag by a few months, in terms of providing support for new cloud platforms, or new… more»

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

The licensing fees are based on what environments you are monitoring.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did not use another solution prior to this one.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anyone who is implementing this solution is to know what roles you will need to grant access to and have your roles predefined. This solution has good… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate a couple of other options, and we have other solutions as well. We have Evident.io, one from Cisco, and one from Palo Alto. None of them are good in every… more»

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

They definitely charge a huge amount. All the security service providers charge a huge amount.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

This is our first solution of its kind.

What other advice do I have?

Do a PoC for a week or ten days. If you don't like it, go with another vendor. But I believe you will like it. It's not necessary to give access to everyone in the company to monitor their cloud… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

At the time we chose this product, we did not evaluate others, but recently we have a looked at a couple of other products. The others are pretty good. They have come up with a lot of innovation… more»

SkyHigh has the ability to place users or groups on a ‘Watchlist’; which allows you to see certain views with these Watchlists users/groups in them. This is great when you are looking at live data but… more»

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

All the information available on each service, including its risk assessment. Service groups, automatic assignment of services based on designated conditions, and the ability to utilize multiple log sources for the data.

How has it helped my organization?

Provides quite a bit of visibility into cloud services being utilized in our environment. I've been able to take the data available in Skyhigh and create discussions about whether we should be allowing or blocking certain services. This has… more»

What is most valuable?

Predominantly, there are two valuable features: One is the data loss and the other one is network loss. It also prevents you from writing data to your Gmail and does not allow you to move your data outside of the corporate system. That is the most important feature for me.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more power being given to the admin. In the sense that in case an employee is facing an issue and they want to configure a service, like attaching an email in Gmail, for example, they should be given the option to make the service request and get that configured on the go.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise someone considering this solution to configure it the way the OEM advises you. You should have a list of customization. I would rate it a seven and a half out of ten.
