"All of the features are very useful in today's market."
"The dashboard is intuitive. You know if you're compliant or not, and then it gives you a remediation plan."
"Auto remediation is a very effective feature that helps ensure less manual intervention."
"Good interface and visibility."
"This product provides a really nice visualization of the infrastructure, including network topology, firewalls, etc."
"It provides complete visibility of workload hosted on different cloud platforms including AWS and Azure, along with multiple tenants."
"It helps us to analyze vulnerabilities way before they get installed in production and the web. It gives us more security in the production environment."
"Checkpoint posture management gives you visibility across your entire cloud infrastructure, so it helps you with management, maintenance, and compliance. With visibility across all these cloud platforms, you can protect against compromised credentials or identity theft."
"There are a lot of features with benefits, including discovery, investigation, and putting controls around things. You can't say that you like the investigation part but not the discovery. Everything is correlated; that's how the tool works."
"If your business requirements are relatively simple, it can get the job done."
"The feature that helps us in detecting the sensitive information being shared has been very useful. In addition, the feature that allows MCAS to apply policies with SharePoint, Teams, and OneDrive is being used predominantly."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is its monitoring."
"The most valuable feature is the seamless integration across different clouds."
"We have become more aware of what services our users are using, how often they are using them, and what data is being sent out of the organization and to which services. So, it is really a lot about visibility and helping us make decisions based on that. It drives some of our policy decisions for adding extra security controls."
"It is very easy to use, which is what we look for in these types of solutions."
"Better logging allows us to find problems and take appropriate steps to lock them out."
"Dome9 should also support deployments that are on-premises and in a hybrid cloud."
"It should capture more information in metadata including communication detail. Also, Internal IP addresses should not be tracked as this might be having some compliance issues."
"The false positives can be annoying at times."
"Integration could be improved."
"Currently, worldwide, there are many companies of all sizes that do not understand the value that their data has, but even with all existing clouds, they also do not understand what the shared responsibility model is. They only assume that by having a cloud, the provider must ensure safety, when the truth is that the providers only secure their sites. Everything we do in the cloud and how we configure it is actually our responsibility."
"We were demotivated by the lack of native automation modules for the Terraform and Ansible tools."
"In Dome9, there should be a policy validation option where we can validate the policy before we push it into production."
"Reporting should have more options."
"In the future, I would like to see more plug-and-play capabilities that use AI to tell you what needs to be done. It would be helpful if it scanned our devices and made security suggestions, on a configuration basis."
"They should continue integration with all other Microsoft security-related products. The integration with all the other products is still ongoing."
"The interface needs to be more user-friendly."
"The response time could be better. It will be helpful if the alerts are even more proactive and we can see more data. Currently, the data is a little bit weak. It is not complete. I can't just see it and completely know which user or which device it is. It takes some effort and time on my part to investigate and isolate a user. It would be great if it is more user-friendly or easy for people to understand."
"I believe it's only set to be integrated with Microsoft Defender for identity and identity protection. I would like to see it available for use with something like Office 365 Defender. I don't think it's integrated with that yet."
"This service would be better if it had a separate license, only for this service, that could be used to track usage."
"There are challenges with detection and there are challenges with false-positive rates."
"The integration with macOS operating systems needs to be better."
