How has it helped my organization?

It's very hard to find anything that works this well. There are two different benefits that we derive out of the tool: * The assessment-based... more»

What needs improvement?

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

What other advice do I have?

We typically just deploy the latest version that we have, and that's it. We don't go back and do upgrades. Either the customers are doing that... more»

I'd like to see better support for being able to search the hardware NetFlow data. It ingests fairly well, but you can't tell, in a lot of... more»

Which solutions did we use previously?

We used a combination of legacy netflow products, some freeware and the like. My criteria for selecting a vendor include: is it somebody we... more»

What other advice do I have?

There is not an easier way to do this. If you have unlimited time, maybe go look at something else. But if you don't, then this is would be the... more»

Which solutions did we use previously?

We did not have a previous solution. We have a project to migrate from legacy networks into NSX-T. This solution was installed to facilitate... more»

What other advice do I have?

I want to say it's a 10 out of 10. If they fix that micro-segmentation thing it will absolutely be a 10. Right now it's about an eight out of... more»

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend the product. I don't think there is any other product like this on the market right now. I rate this product at seven out of ten because the product is great but... more»

Right now, since the PoC, in the environment that we're using it on, for troubleshooting any issues that come up, or in the case of the... more»

What needs improvement?

The only real improvement they can make is to add more third-party vendors into the environment, mostly switch manufacturers, because it's... more»

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

It could be cheaper, of course.

What other advice do I have?

It's a pretty good system if you're doing troubleshooting and microsegmentation. As a troubleshooting tool, it's a level-3... more»

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

Cost always has room for improvement, you could always make it cheaper. But I think it's a good value for what you pay for it.

Which solutions did we use previously?

There wasn't really anything similar to this before. We knew that there were things going on, but we really couldn't tell. We didn't know how to... more»
