Gives us better visibility into our resources and enables faster resolution
The detection time could be better. It takes a long time to scan. I'm not sure how long other tools take for the same amount of scanning, so I cannot compare it with other tools, but it takes us half a day to a full day to complete the scan. I want to get the reports faster so we can start fixing the problems. The proof of exploitability is another area for improvement. While I have all the information to troubleshoot the problem, it isn't detailed enough for an administrator. It has sufficient information for a general user, but an administrator would like to know all the ins and outs of the vulnerabilities that have been reported. I would like to see the map feature improve. It's good, but it isn't fully developed. It lets us use custom resources and policies but does not allow us to perform some actions. I would also like more custom integration and runtime security for Kubernetes.

Provides workload protection and helps identify security misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, and risks
I'm using it for workload protection. So, in most cases, for protecting containers, verifying Kubernetes configurations, cloud configurations, and identifying security misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, and risks I use it to demonstrate to customers because I'm a sales engineer. Many customers…

An operational system, similar to Linux where you can run your applications inside containers
With CoreOS, you can run your applications inside containers. For example, if you have an application that needs to run on Linux, you can create and install a container. However, it's important to note that you don't install CoreOS inside a container; CoreOS is the host operating system that manages containers. When you mentioned using Nacula as part of your CI/CD pipeline, it means your application is deployed and managed automatically through the CI/CD process. Containers are used to deploy your application within this pipeline, but CoreOS does not run inside these containers. Instead, CoreOS is the base operating system that supports and manages these containers.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"My favorite feature is Storyline."
"I like CSPM the most. It captures a lot of alerts within a short period of time. When an alert gets triggered on the cloud, it throws an alert within half an hour, which is very reasonable. It is a plus point for us."
"The most valuable feature of the solution is its storyline, which helps trace an event back to its source, like an email or someone clicking on a link."
"The user interface is well-designed and easy to navigate."
"Support has been very helpful and provides regular feedback and help whenever needed. They've been very useful."
"Cloud Native Security's most valuable features include cloud misconfiguration detection and remediation, compliance monitoring, a robust authentication security engine, and cloud threat detection and response capabilities."
"It used to guide me about an alert. There is something called an alert guide. I used to click on the alert guide, and I could read everything. I could read about the alert and how to resolve it. I used to love that feature."
"We're monitoring several cloud accounts with Singularity. It is convenient to identify issues or security failures in any account. It's nice to have all the details we need to solve these issues."
"Valuable features include the ability to connect it to our Docker Hub where our images are stored, good integration with Slack, and the connection to the CV, to easily see which CVs are on each image."
"Aqua Security allowed us to gain visibility into the vulnerabilities that were present in the container images, that were being rolled out, the amount of risk that we were introducing to the platform, and provided us a look into the container environment by introducing access control mechanisms. In addition, when it came to runtime-level policies, we could restrict container access to resources in our environment, such as network-level or other application-level access."
"The most valuable features are that it's easy to use and manage."
"The CSPM product is great at securing our cloud accounts and I really like the runtime protection for containers and functions too."
"From what I understand, the initial setup is simple."
"Support is very helpful."
"The DTA, which stands for Dynamic Threat Analysis, allows me to analyze Docker images in a sandbox environment before deployment, helping me anticipate risks."
"Customers find it invaluable to have the ability to check for vulnerabilities in an image before deployment, similar to a sandbox environment."
"With CoreOS, you can run your applications inside containers. For example, if you have an application that needs to run on Linux, you can create and install a container. However, it's important to note that you don't install CoreOS inside a container; CoreOS is the host operating system that manages containers."
"CoreOS Clair's best feature is detection accuracy."


"I would like PingSafe to add real-time detection of vulnerabilities and cloud misconfigurations."
"We use PingSafe and also SentinelOne. If PingSafe integrated some of the endpoint security features of SentinelOne, it would be the perfect one-stop solution for everything. We wouldn't need to switch between the products. At my organization, I am responsible for endpoint security and vulnerability management. Integrating both functions into one application would be ideal because I could see all the alerts, heat maps, and reports in one console."
"When we request any changes, they must be reflected in the next update."
"The resolution suggestions could be better, and the compliance features could be more customizable for Indian regulations. Overall, the compliance aspects are good. It gives us a comprehensive list, and its feedback is enough to bring us into compliance with regulations, but it doesn't give us the specific objects."
"The categorization of the results from the vulnerability assessment could be improved."
"here is a bit of a learning curve. However, you only need two to three days to identify options and get accustomed."
"There is room for improvement in the current active licensing model for PingSafe."
"We wanted it to provide us with something like Claroty Hub in AWS for lateral movement. For example, if an EC2 instance or a virtual machine is compromised in a public subnet based on a particular vulnerability, such as Log4j, we want it to not be able to reach some of our databases. This kind of feature is not supported in PingSafe."
"Sometimes I got stressed with the UI."
"I would like Aqua Security to look into is the development of a web security portal."
"Aqua Security lacks a lot in reporting."
"They want to release improvements to their product to work with other servers because now there are more focused on the Kubernetes environment. They need to improve the normal servers. I would like to have more options."
"The user interface could be improved, especially in terms of organization and clarity."
"It's a bit hard to use the user roles. That was a bit confusing."
"Since we are working from home, we would like to have the proper training for Aqua."
"There's room for improvement, particularly in management capabilities as it may not be comprehensive enough for all customers, and it has been lacking in the realm of cloud security posture management."
"An area for improvement is that CoreOS Clair doesn't provide information about the location of vulnerabilities it detects."
"It can be improved in its support response. They usually take up to seven days to resolve the issue."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"It's a fair price for what you get. We are happy with the price as it stands."
"The pricing is fair. It is not inexpensive, and it is also not expensive. When managing a large organization, it is going to be costly, but it meets the business needs. In terms of what is out there on the market, it is fair and comparable to what I have seen, so I do not have any complaints about the cost"
"The pricing for PingSafe in India was more reasonable than other competitors."
"The tool is cost-effective."
"PingSafe is less expensive than other options."
"For pricing, it currently seems to be in line with market rates."
"PingSafe falls somewhere in the middle price range, neither particularly cheap nor expensive."
"Singularity Cloud Workload Security's pricing is good."
"It comes at a reasonable cost."
"They were reasonable with their pricing. They were pretty down-to-earth about the way they pitched their product and the way they tried to close the deal. They were one of the rare companies that approached the whole valuation in a way that made sense for our company, for our needs, and for their own requirements as well... They will accommodate your needs if they are able to understand them and they're stated clearly."
"Aqua Security is not cheap, and it's not very expensive, such as Splunk, they are in the middle."
"The pricing of this solution could be improved."
"Dealing with licensing costs isn't my responsibility, but I know that the licenses don't depend on the number of users, but instead are priced according to your workload."
"CoreOS Clair is open-source and free of charge."
