"The performance is good."
"DLP, Data Loss Prevention, and the complexity of how we manage the console and how this client, or this tool, will notify us when there is something going wrong within the server and endpoint, is good."
"Technical support is good."
"We've found stability to be great so far."
"Easy to scale, stable solution for workload and server security and protection. It's easy to set up and has a good ransomware protection feature."
"The traceback feature in XDR is amazing. You can trace back an attack. You can playback where an attack actually occurred and see how the attacker moved. We can easily show this to management, and it makes it easy to make them understand and convince them, which is the best thing."
"Aside from the basic antivirus features, there are additional features such as vulnerability protection, firewall, etc. which are helpful."
"In addition to providing our clients a view of what's happening in their data centers, it also does virtual patching in the data center. It enhances the security in the data center big time."
"The best part is the blueprint creation where I can create their things and then move on to the target environment."
"Some of the key features I find most valuable are the highly graphical user interface, virtualization of networks, and Microsoft application compatibility. It has all the functionality that we require."
"Over the last two years, they've enhanced a lot, especially in regard to integration with OpenStack."
"I have found the solution to be stable."
"The most valuable features are ease of use and user interface."
"It gives more security and micro-segmentation. It helps to set network configurations in an easy way."
"The most valuable features of VMware NSX are the tight integration with the VMware Hypervisor natively and the management console. We have a lot of other integrations where you are able to see the virtual machine's end-to-end visibility."
"It's a beneficial tool."
"I would like to see XDR features and endpoint sensor become available."
"The licensing structure could improve."
"I think more work could be done on Deep Security's ability to handle dynamic threat scenarios."
"Some of the reporting and integrations could be more robust."
"The problem with this solution is that if you go on large sites you have to have an external database, which would increase the cost."
"It should have XDR and EDR integration. It would be nice if they can tie it up with an XDR or EDR."
"What this product lacks at this stage is the ability to have automated workbooks to do the response. At this stage, the response is more manual, and it is not automated. If there is a response functionality in Deep Security, similar to what we have in EDR these days, to automatically respond to some of the threats, it would be cool. So, we'd like to have an automated response. There should be a response functionality."
"Their support should be improved. We need support in the UAE, but it is always going to some other country or region, and the time schedule is not suitable for us."
"NSX could better integrate with open-source products. Of course, it integrates with some, but I know many people are uncomfortable deploying NSX with certain open-source solutions, such as Radar."
"Some configuration maximums are limiting to the user, especially when it comes to the deployment of very, very large environments."
"They have to work more and more on the integration for public cloud services and have cyber security platform integration."
"They could do more with cloud management."
"Our technical team is always looking for the solutions that they work with to offer more convenient integrations."
"VMware NSX provides a lot of automation capabilities, but there is still room for improvement."
"We have done three installations and we have not had any critical issues. The time it took for the installation was approximately two days. However, they should provide better documentation."
"There could be an improvement in regards to security."

Trend Micro Deep Security Features
Trend Micro Deep Security has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:
Reviews from Real Users
Trend Micro Deep Security stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its robust data and loss prevention feature and its patch management, which saves users money. PeerSpot users take note of the advantages of these features in their reviews:
One PeerSpot reviewer, a Senior Security Advisor at a healthcare company, writes, “DLP, Data Loss Prevention, and the complexity of how we manage the console and how this client, or this tool, will notify us when there is something going wrong within the server and endpoint, is good.”
Nadeem S., CEO at Haniya Technologies, notes of the solution, “Patch management is most valuable. The major selling point of Deep Security is that it is based on the cloud. Deep Security is for the servers and databases of data centers, and generally, for patch management, you have to shut down the machines, and then you have to restart them. So, they need shutdown time, which is a cost.”
VMware NSX is a full-stack network and security virtualization platform that enables the virtual cloud network. NSX provides a software-defined process for networking that expands throughout cloud frameworks, data centers, and application structures. Users can join and secure applications within their container and multi-cloud infrastructure and their data center. With robust automated provisioning, the platform offers dynamic flexibility and scalability without compromising on network speed or agility.
VMware NSX recreates the whole software network model so that users can create and deliver apps quickly and securely. Users can customize security policies and leverage IDS/IPS to block against lateral threats. These security policies can be managed throughout private and public clouds from one pane of glass, no matter where your applications run. By consolidating networking and security tasks into a unified platform, users can save up to one-third of their budget.
VMware NSX Use Cases
VMware NSX brings the operational model of a virtual machine to users’ data center networks and revolutionizes the foundations of network and security operations. There are a number of use cases, including:
