Good quality and pricing with the capabilities to optimize as needed
Pros and Cons
  • "The quality of the solution is good."
  • "The solution should improve the recovery aspects that it has on offer."

What is our primary use case?

We have multiple teams in our organization that use the solution.

What is most valuable?

There are plenty of services from the database. There are many features that are valuable.

Scalability and agility are good.

The pricing is okay.

The quality of the solution is good.

The solution delivers well on optimization.

In terms of customization, it's quite good and can work with any other cloud platforms.

What needs improvement?

I don't have a deep knowledge of the solution and its compatibility, so I don't know if I can speak to what might be lacking.

Scalability and agility could be improved slightly, even though we find them good right now.

The solution should improve the recovery aspects that it has on offer.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for two to three years now.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We also use Azure.

How was the initial setup?

Since my role is restricted to security protocols, I don't have too much information on the deployment and implementation of this solution.

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

The solution is very cost-effective.

What other advice do I have?

My role and responsibility is to check the services of the security platform in question to see if it fits the requirements. For example, there are members of our team who are looking to leverage some services from the public cloud, I just look at their business requirements and see what services they want to leverage on a solution.

Physically if there is something that is lacking in security that I can foresee, I explain the best practices to follow to enable additional security controls. This may be making stronger authentications, authorizations, or having stronger data security and encryption. 

I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

Depending on an organization's requirements and budgets, cloud services would be recommended. A user must just decide what they need and stick to one thing.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Amazon Web Services (AWS)
