Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The administration portal panel is very intuitive.""Good interface and visibility.""Alerts of cloud activity happening across all accounts is helpful.""I love the work involved in maintaining and scaling security services and configurations across multiple public clouds using this solution, versus using native native cloud security controls. It is so much better. The different cloud platforms all have their own way that they handle a lot of the stuff that Dome9 handles. Even within their platform, they are in a lot of disparate places, e.g., in AWS, there are five different tools. You have to jump between them to get the same information that you can just pull in automatically on Dome9, which is just one platform. We are using multiple platforms, so that makes it even more complicated and time consuming if you had to just rely on them to get all of your information. Whereas, it's all just summarized and put together on the Dome9 end.""We like the ability to investigate, analyze, and generate reports.""The dashboard is intuitive. You know if you're compliant or not, and then it gives you a remediation plan.""Its easy implementation against Microsoft Azure was quite satisfactory.""The most valuable feature is the CloudBots for auto-remediation of security findings."

"The product offers an easy initial setup.""As it is based on AWS, it is not a problem.""The most valuable aspect for us is the fact that the product seamlessly integrates with the Forcepoint DLP.""Generally, most of our customers are happy with it though.""Macro integration is a good feature."

Cons
"The guidelines to implement or to link with the clouds are not complete.""Currently, I would like this solution extended to cellular devices or tablets.""I would like to see improvements in the vulnerability assessments in terms of how the solution discovers vulnerabilities or compromised workloads. Also, customizable reports would be nice.""The tool has a lot of potential, but today, it lacks a lot of Scripts/Bots for Azure.""Reporting should have more options.""CloudGuard could be more customizable. It has built-in standards for things like GDPR compliance. But depending on your business lane, you might want to build your own controls based on your own standards.""Reporting should have more options.""In general, for the product to be successful, they need to improve security, and configuration detection."

More Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management Cons →

"The solution needs to be easier to install, and they need to clean up the backend, so stuff doesn't break.""Integration is an area of the solution that needs to be improved.""Forcepoint removed the ability to scan for unsanctioned applications on the CASB.""Lacks different ways to authenticate users.""When using the Forcepoint CASB, and you are a remote worker, basically not in the office, you have to have an agent on your computer, a Forcepoint agent. However, with many other CASB solutions, they can integrate with MDM."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The pricing is tremendous and super cheap. It is shockingly cheap for what you get out of it. I am happy with that. I hope that doesn't get reported back and they increase the prices. I love the pricing and the licensing makes sense. It is just assets: The more stuff that you have, the more you pay."
  • "Licensing and costs are straightforward, as they have a baseline of 100 workloads within one license and no additional charges."
  • "The license for CloudGuard Posture Management is about $80 a year, and it's based on your cloud footprint, not the number of users. So you could have a million users, and it doesn't matter."
  • "From a pricing perspective, they are pretty expensive."
  • "In the beginning, the price of Dome9 was cheap, whereas now it is not."
  • "Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management is always known as a good solution but an expensive one. When you're using Cisco, Check Point, or Palo Alto, you know that you will pay more, but you know that it will work."

  • "The pricing really depends on the size of the customer's business because it is price-relevant to the environment."
