Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Google Cloud Platform Cloud Identity-Aware Proxy.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The support can be more efficient. Google has different layers of support, like layer one, layer two, and layer three, but normally, the response from layer one is not very useful. Google is not very capable when it comes to patching vulnerabilities. It would be nice if they could improve this security issue or CVE. The stability needs to be improved for some services.
The product is great. I can't think of a way it can be improved. There aren't any missing features. It's quite complete. The solution could be more reasonably priced. We find it to be a bit expensive right now.
We have some challenges related to purging the data. We get a lot of data on a daily basis that has to be refreshed on the site, but we are seeing some challenges with that. They can also include some third-party integration. We have one Akamai dependency. If they can come up with some API to talk to Akamai, it would be good.
I think this product needs to shift the focus from our software, our solution, like social media analytics to our customers; not maintenance in the hardware. We focus on our business for the maintenance and infrastructure to develop the software.
We are looking for a more robust solution that allows seamless integration. The initial setup was quite complex. The solution needs some features. There a lot of new requirements, like seamless integration and real-time batch updates, that we would want that should be added in future releases.
I think that the documentation could be a bit better in terms of what is presented on the screen versus what actually happens. There's a little bit of confusion under your resource discovery you get in a search bar having to do with the level of complexity of the product design. But I think the documentation could be better.
I would like to see the drag and drop features improved. They have a lot of hand-coded coding. Now they are doing less coding and more drag and drop and configuration. From a developer's perspective, it would make it simpler and also the less manual coding will lead to fewer defects. Less coding ability but most coding should be automated using a drag and drop functionality. The setup could be more user-friendly. In the next release, I would like to see improved drag and drop features, less coding abilities, or zero coding abilities. This would mean that you can do it by using your configurations, or even when you drag and drop it can be an orchestration so that anyone can do it. It would not be just some hand-coded kind of development that will be used by developers in the future.
