We performed a comparison between Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management and Trend Micro Cloud One Workload Security based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two CWPP (Cloud Workload Protection Platforms) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"Most importantly, it's an integrated solution. We not only have Defender for Cloud, but we also have Defender for Endpoint, Defender for Office 365, and Defender for Identity. It's an integrated, holistic solution."
"This is a platform as a service provided by Azure. We don't need to install or maintain Azure Security Center. It is a ready-made service available in Azure. This is one of the main things that we like. If you look at similar tools, we have to install, maintain, and update services. Whereas, Azure Security Center manages what we are using. This is a good feature that has helped us a lot."
"We can create alerts that trigger if there is any malicious activity happening in the workflow and these alerts can be retrieved using the query language."
"Technical support is helpful."
"The most valuable features are ransomware protection and access controls. The solution has helped us secure some folders on our systems from unauthorized modifications."
"The security policy is the most valuable feature for us. We can go into the environment settings and attach any globally recognized framework like ISO or any benchmark."
"Using Security Center, you have a full view, at any given time, of what's deployed, and that is something that is very useful."
"It is very intuitive when it comes to policy administration, alerts and notifications, and ease of setting up roles at different hierarchies. It has also been good in terms of the network technology maps. It provides a good overview, but it also depends on the complexity of your network."
"It provides complete visibility of workload hosted on different cloud platforms including AWS and Azure, along with multiple tenants."
"The solution offers an excellent price, benefit, and installation relationship."
"The most valuable feature is the CloudBots for auto-remediation of security findings."
"The administration portal panel is very intuitive."
"This solution has saved the company from unnecessary data loss that occurs due to cyber attacks."
"Its easy implementation against Microsoft Azure was quite satisfactory."
"The two most valuable features for us are the central firewall administrator and the real-time cloud compliance monitoring."
"Alerts of cloud activity happening across all accounts is helpful."
"The security is good."
"Virtual patching is one of the key features, which is executed with their IPS."
"Azure's system could be more on point like AWS support. For example, if I have an issue with AWS, I create a support ticket, then I get a call or a message. With Azure support, you raise a ticket, and somebody calls back depending on their availability and the priority, which might not align with your business priority."
"Consistency is the area where the most improvement is needed. For example, there are some areas where the UI is not uniform across the board."
"Most of the time, when we log into the support, we don't get a chance to interact with Microsoft employees directly, except having it go to outsource employees of Microsoft. The initial interaction has not been that great because outsourced companies cannot provide the kind of quality or technical expertise that we look for. We have a technical manager from Microsoft, but they are kind of average unless we make noise and ask them to escalate. We then can get the right people and the right solution, but it definitely takes time."
"I would like to see better automation when it comes to pushing out security features to the recommendations, and better documentation on the step-by-step procedures for enabling certain features."
"Customizing some of the compliance requirements based on individual needs seems like the biggest area of improvement. There should be an option to turn specific controls on and off based on how your solution is configured."
"Another thing that could be improved was that they could recommend processes on how to react to alerts, or recommend best practices based on how other organizations do things if they receive an alert about XYZ."
"Azure Security Center takes a long time to update, compared to the on-premises version of Microsoft Defender."
"Another thing is that Defender for Cloud uses more resources than CrowdStrike, which my current company uses. Defender for Cloud has two or three processes running simultaneously that consume memory and processor time. I had the chance to compare that with CrowdStrike a few days ago, which was significantly less. It would be nice if Defender were a little lighter. It's a relatively large installation that consumes more resources than competitors do."
"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."
"The biggest thing is the documentation aspect of Dome9 is a little lacking. They were purchased by Check Point about a year and a half to two years ago. When they integrated into Check Point's support system, a lot of the documentation that they had previously got mangled in the transition, e.g., linking to stuff on the Dome9 website that no longer exists. There are still a lot of spaces with incomplete links and stuff that is not as fully explained as it could be."
"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."
"Almost all features are good, however, they still require improvements to the code security portion on which integration with the major source code repository is required."
"Reporting should have more options."
"The entire system is complicated, and the setup process may not cater to the company's demands."
"The false positives can be annoying at times."
"The tool has a lot of potential, but today, it lacks a lot of Scripts/Bots for Azure."
"The pricing can get high."
"The firewall configuration should have been automated based on the understanding of the application, utilities, and protocols."
