We performed a comparison between Ermetic and Wiz based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about Palo Alto Networks, Microsoft, Orca Security and others in CWPP (Cloud Workload Protection Platforms).
"Ermetic can provide super visibility for our cloud environment (we are using AWS)."
"The vulnerability management modules and the discovery and inventory are the most valuable features. Before using Wiz, it was a very manual process for both. After implementing it, we're able to get all of the analytics into a single platform that gives us visibility across all the systems in our cloud. We're able to correspond and understand what the vulnerability landscape looks like a lot faster."
"Out of all the features, the one item that has been most valuable is the fact that Wiz puts into context all the pieces that create an issue, and applies a particular risk evaluation that helps us prioritize when we need to address a misconfiguration, vulnerability, or any issue that would put our environment into risk."
"Our most important features are those around entitlement, external exposure, vulnerabilities, and container security."
"The CSPM module has been the most effective. It was easy to deploy and covered all our accounts through APIs, requiring no agents. Wiz provides instant visibility into high-level risks that we need to address."
"The product supports out-of-the-box reporting with context about the asset and allows us to perform complex custom queries on UI."
"The first thing that stood out was the ease of installation and the quick value we got out of the solution."
"I like Wiz's reporting, and it's easy to do queries. For example, it's pretty simple to find out how many servers we have and the applications installed on each. I like Wiz's security graph because you can use it to see the whole organization even if you have multiple accounts."
"The solution is very user-friendly."
"I didn't find anything that wasn't useful or needed to be added."
"We wish there were a way, beyond providing visibility and automated remediation, to wait on a given remediation, due to a critical aspect, such as the cost associated with a particular upgrade... We would like to see preventive controls that can be applied through Wiz to protect against vulnerabilities that we're not going to be able to remediate immediately."
"One significant issue is that the searches are case-sensitive, so finding a misconfigured resource can become very challenging."
"The only small pain point has been around some of the logging integrations. Some of the complexities of the script integrations aren't supported with some of the more automated infrastructure components. So, it's not as universal. For example, they have great support for cloud formation and other services, but if you're using another type of management utility or governance language for your infrastructure-as-code automation components, it becomes a little bit trickier to navigate that."
"We would like to see improvements to executive-level reporting and data reporting in general, which we understand is being rolled out to the platform."
"Wiz's reporting capabilities could be refined a bit. They are making headway on that, but more executive-style dashboards would be nice. They just implemented a community aspect where you can share documents and feedback. This was something users had been requesting for a while. They are listening to customer feedback and making changes."
"Given the level of visibility into all the cloud environments Wiz provides, it would be nice if they could integrate some kind of mechanism to better manage tenants on multiple platforms. For example, let's say that some servers don't have an application they need, such as an antivirus. Wiz could include an API or something to push those applications out to the servers. It would be great if you could remedy these issues directly from the Wiz platform."
"The remediation workflow within the Wiz could be improved."
"The reporting isn't that great. They have executive summaries, but it's only a compliance report that maps all current issues to specific controls. Whether you look at one subscription or project, regardless of the size, you will get a multipage report on how the issues in that account map to that control. Our CSO isn't going to read through that. He won't filter that out or show that to his leadership and say, "Here's what we're doing." It isn't a helpful report. They're working on it, but it's a poor executive summary."
At its core, Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) helps determine that an organization’s cloud applications and services are configured securely. CSPM solutions use APIs to acquire configuration data from each cloud service in use and monitor continuously for configuration risk. CSPM can also analyze configuration against compliance benchmarks to detect settings that pose security vulnerabilities and threats, or account hygiene violations. In short, CSPM gives a broad security view of network, data storage and API configuration settings.
Wiz is reinventing cloud security from the inside out.
We’re on a mission to help organizations effectively reduce risks in their Cloud and Kubernetes environments. Purpose-built for the unique complexities of multi-environment, multi-workload, and multi-project cloud estates, Wiz automatically correlates the critical risk factors to deliver actionable insights that don't waste time.
Wiz connects in minutes using a 100% API-based approach that scans both platform configurations and inside every workload. Our full security stack context surfaces the toxic combinations that show the attackers’ view to a breach. Security and development teams use Wiz workflows to proactively remove risks and prevent them from becoming breaches.
