Reviews from Real Users
Prisma Cloud stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its integration capabilities, as well as its visibility, which makes it very easy for users to get a full picture of the cloud environment.
Alex J., an information security manager at Cobalt.io, writes, “Prisma Cloud has enabled us to take a very strong preventive approach to cloud security. One of the hardest things with cloud is getting visibility into workloads. With Prisma Cloud, you can go in and get that visibility, then set up policies to alert on risky behavior, e.g., if there are security groups or firewall ports open up. So, it is very helpful in preventing configuration errors in the cloud by having visibility. If there are issues, then you can find them and fix them.”
Luke L., a cloud security specialist for a financial services firm, writes, “You can also integrate with Amazon Managed Services. You can also get a snapshot in time, whether that's over a 24-hour period, seven days, or a month, to determine what the estate might look like at a certain point in time and generate reports from that for vulnerability management forums.”

HyTrust DataControl is a complete cloud and virtualization encryption solution including both encryption and KeyControl and is available for both Windows and Linux. Initial installation takes just a few seconds and data is securely encrypted at rest and in motion from the point of install until the VM is eventually securely retired.
Because the encryption software is part of the VM, encryption travels with the VM from one physical host to another or from private to public cloud and back again. Operationally DataControl is transparent, allowing encryption and rekeying on the fly with no need to reboot, dismount or incur downtime.
BMC Helix Cloud Security is ranked 24th in CWPP (Cloud Workload Protection Platforms) while HyTrust DataControl is ranked 30th in CWPP (Cloud Workload Protection Platforms).
