More Cisco Defense Orchestrator Pros →

"The clarity around the auditing provides the most value for us.""We can check and analyze the current status of our firewall rules.""Visibility is its largest and most valuable feature. You can see everything or all the devices on the network for each customer. It provides you a larger view of what might be wrong with the network and how you can improve it with firewall rules, etc. If you are talking about secure change, being able to automate the entire change process is pretty much the winner for us. It is going to really reduce the time that it takes for us to do changes, and we can just go out and get more customers.""It is an important application for controlling and monitoring firewall rules. It is useful for making and monitoring the changes.""You can easily scale the solution if you need to.""It's user-friendly. It's easy to understand menus on the web GUI. That's a good feature for us. I can say that it's doing what it's supposed to do. It also integrates well with other products like Check Point.""It allows administrators to visualize the traffic flow, and troubleshoot when necessary.""Being able to customize your own clarity to that aspect of change management."

Cons
"They need to work on the user interface. It needs to be improved to make it more user-friendly.""They can centralize all products and provide a correlation about an incident and the response. They can also provide an on-premises solution. Currently, Cisco Defense Orchestrator is just for cloud deployments, not for on-premises deployments. Customers have to manage it on the cloud. We are based in Vietnam, and most of the customers here prefer to have on-premises deployments. Customers, especially from banking and government sectors, do not prefer to do anything on the cloud. Some of the small enterprises use the cloud.""Cisco Defense Orchestrator can improve by providing more support for third-party security components."

More Cisco Defense Orchestrator Cons →

"The pricing could be a bit more competitive.""Its price is reasonable, but it could be lower. It could have a more effective approach for creating and changing rules. It could provide advice or suggestions for a better understanding of rules and changing the rules. There should be suggestions for the rules that need to be changed to make them less risky.""The initial setup can be tough.""It would be better if they modernized the web GUI. The web interface GUI is simple and not complicated, but it's also too old.""They've got such a large number of APIs, and it is so easy to use their APIs. Effectively, they allow us to use it with anything. The only way to improve it more is by offering support for implementing their APIs into certain hardware or software that we might use. They can provide support for implementing APIs.""The network part of the solution could be improved. It's too hard because of the Tufin licensing model for the routing devices.""I would like to see AI elements included with this solution.""They are a little bit behind on some of their support for the Palo Alto firewall platform. I'd like to see that catch up, specifically around importing certain objects."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "If you compare to what is available on the market, they are in the same range with respect to pricing."
  • "I work with a lot of clients, and the price or value of the Cisco Defense Orchestrator can vary from one client to another. If you have a lot of Cisco solutions, the price of the Cisco Defense Orchestrator is justified. Whereas if you have some security components from other vendors, such as Check Point or Palo Alto. This solution would be a pretty expensive proposition considering that they don't integrate with them well."
  • More Cisco Defense Orchestrator Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "It's quite an expensive solution."
  • "Price could always be better, but there are always consequences."
  • "The price is on the cheaper side."
  • "Its price is reasonable, but it could be lower. It has been cost-effective for us. We have a contract for three years."
  • "Because we're quite a large company, the price wasn't too much of a factor for us."
  • "The pricing is reasonable."
  • "There is a permanent license for devices, but it's not relative to a device itself. Once you purchase 10 licenses for virtual appliances or virtual context, you can put them into different virtual firewalls, but you can reuse these licenses for other devices if you don't need them for the old ones."
  • "It is expensive, but as compared to other players, it's more or less okay. Their pricing is not very transparent. This is my biggest point regarding Tufin. I've never seen a price list or something like that. It's always individual, and in many cases, it's very confusing to know what is the base and what is the price."
