We performed a comparison between Prisma Cloud by Palo Alto Networks and Veracode based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about Palo Alto Networks, Wiz, Microsoft and others in Container Security.
"The management console is the most valuable feature."
"We like the platform and its response time. We also like that its console is user-friendly as well as modern and sleek."
"Our previous product took a lot of man hours to manage. Once we got Singularity Cloud Workload Security, it freed up our time to work on other tasks."
"The real-time detection and response capabilities overall are great."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to gain deep visibility into the workloads inside containers."
"The solution helped free other staff to work on other projects or other tasks. We basically just had to do a bunch of upfront configuring. With it, we do not have to spend as much time in the console."
"I did a lot of research before signing up and doing the demo. They have a good reputation as far as catching threats early on."
"The management console is highly intuitive to comprehend and operate."
"The support is excellent."
"Its ease of integration is valuable because we need to get the solution out of the door quickly, so speed and ease matter."
"The most valuable features are the alerts and auto-remediation because it allows us a lot of flexibility to customize and do things the Palo Alto team never intended. We faced some challenges with certificates because we also have next-gen firewalls. We would like to equip all the traffic because there have been many cases in which the developers have done things by mistake. Deploying certificates on virtual machines can be complex in a development environment, but we managed to do that with Prisma Cloud."
"CSPM is very useful because it gives us good policies and violation alerts."
"The first aspect that is important is the fact that Prisma Cloud is cloud-agnostic. It's actually available for the five top cloud providers: AWS, GCP, Azure, Oracle, and Alibaba Cloud. The second aspect is the fact that we can write our own rules to try to detect misconfigurations in those environments."
"Prisma Cloud helped us with compliance. Most of my deployments have been greenfield, so I don't have a benchmark to compare how the security posture has improved. I've always used this from day zero of the configuration. However, I can say that the compliance checks for PCI, DSS, HIPAA, etc., made my life simpler. I don't need to look at each of these standards and compare the rules I have in place."
"Configuration monitoring and alerting is the most valuable feature; it happens at the cloud's speed, allowing our development team to respond quickly. If a configuration goes against our security best practices, we're alerted promptly and can act to resolve the issue. As cloud security staff, we're not staring at the cloud all the time, and we want to let the developers do their jobs so that our company is protected and work is proceeding within our security controls."
"The most valuable features of Prisma Cloud are its cloud security posture management and cloud workload protection capabilities."
"Veracode Fix is a new feature that functions similarly to auto-remediation for low or medium flaw codes."
"Being able to scan our applications and identify all codes and defects is an extremely valuable feature."
"I like the static scanning, and Veracode's interface is excellent. The dashboard is easy to navigate."
"It has provided what we were looking for in such an application, meaning static application security testing functionality. That was what we were interested in."
"Veracode is very easy to use."
"I contacted the solution's technical support during the automation part, and it went well, after which I never faced any issues."
"I like Veracode's ease of integration with various cloud platforms and tools."
"Stable and scalable, with good reporting features. Helps in detecting and managing vulnerabilities and risks."
"The cost has the potential for improvement."
"It took us a while to configure the software to work well in this type of environment, as the support documents were not always clear."
"If I had to pick a complaint, it would be the way the hosts are listed in the tool. You have different columns separated by endpoint name, Cloud Account, and Cloud Instances ID. I wish there was something where we could change the endpoint name and not use just the IP address. We would like to have custom names or our own names for the instances. If I had a complaint, that would be it, but so far, it meets all the needs that we have."
"Currently, we would have to export our vulnerability report to an .xlsx file, and review it in an Excel spreadsheet, and then we sort of compile a list from there. It would be cool if there was a way to actually toggle multiple applications for review and then see those file paths on multiple users rather than only one user at a time or only one application at a time."
"I would like additional integrations."
"Their search feature could be better."
"The Automation tab is an add-on that doesn’t work properly. They provide a list of scripts that don’t work and I have asked support to assist but they won’t help. When running on various endpoints the script doesn’t work and if it does, it’s only a couple. There are a lot of useful scripts that would be beneficial to run forensics, event logs, and process lists running on the endpoint."
"One of our use cases was setting up a firewall for our endpoints, specifically for our remote users... We were hoping to utilize SentinelOne's firewall capabilities, but there were limitations on how many URLs we could implement. Because of those limitations on the number of URLs, we weren't able to utilize that feature in the way we had hoped to."
"There is room for improvement on the logging and monitoring front because it's still not as holistic as I would want it to be."
"Sometimes, when you assign subnets to regions, the IP address will jump from one location to another because it will automatically change substantially. Then, we need to add those IP subnets to our firewall for existing access. The need to update those subnets potentially causes maintenance or access issues. So far, we can only provide bigger customers with six subnets, and a small company may not be able to access those services."
"Prisma Cloud lags behind in terms of security automation capabilities."
"One of the main backlogs in their development is in the area of integration. For example, we have ServiceNow in place for ticket management and Prisma Cloud is supposed to send closure emails for incidents. But from time to time, it fails to do so. We have several other mismatches between Prisma Cloud and ServiceNow."
"A couple of exporting functionalities should be more user-friendly because if I want to export something, I can get a lot of data visible to that particular CSV."
"We had some teething issues with Prisma Cloud by Palo Alto Networks, but overall, it did what we expected."
"The automation must continue to become much smoother."
"The access controls for our bank roles were not granular enough. We needed specific people to do particular actions, and we often had to give some people way too much access for them to be able to do what they needed in Prisma. They couldn't do their jobs if they didn't have that level of access, so other people had to do that part for them. It would help to have more granular role-based access controls."
"There is room for improvement in documentation."
"In the next release, I would like a proper way of packaging files for scanning and the packing of IOS apps and API Dynamic scan methodology."
"They need to have a plug-in, a better integration with the development environment."
"I haven't heard about any problems so far. However, it would be great if Veracode automatically packaged stuff up for you."
"The number of false positives could be reduced a lot. For each good result, we are getting somewhere around 15 to 20 false positives."
"Veracode does not support scans for .NET Blazor server applications."
"The area with the most room for improvement is the speed and responsiveness of the query, as it is usually very slow."
"One area for improvement is the navigation in the UI. For junior developers or newcomers to the team, it can be confusing. The UI doesn't clearly bundle together certain elements associated with a scan. While running a scan, there are various aspects linked to it, but in the UI, they appear separate. It would be beneficial if they could redesign the UI to make it more intuitive for users."

Benefits of Prisma Cloud
Reviews from Real Users
Prisma Cloud stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its integration capabilities, as well as its visibility, which makes it very easy for users to get a full picture of the cloud environment.
Alex J., an information security manager at Cobalt.io, writes, “Prisma Cloud has enabled us to take a very strong preventive approach to cloud security. One of the hardest things with cloud is getting visibility into workloads. With Prisma Cloud, you can go in and get that visibility, then set up policies to alert on risky behavior, e.g., if there are security groups or firewall ports open up. So, it is very helpful in preventing configuration errors in the cloud by having visibility. If there are issues, then you can find them and fix them.”
Luke L., a cloud security specialist for a financial services firm, writes, “You can also integrate with Amazon Managed Services. You can also get a snapshot in time, whether that's over a 24-hour period, seven days, or a month, to determine what the estate might look like at a certain point in time and generate reports from that for vulnerability management forums.”
