Effective scanner, scalable in our usage, and reliable
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable feature of Aqua Security is the scanner."
  • "Aqua Security could improve the forwarding of logging into Splunk and into other tools, it should be easier."

What is our primary use case?

We mainly used Aqua Security for container-related Kubernetes security in the CI/CD pipelines to secure the runtime of the Kubernetes clusters. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of Aqua Security is the scanner.

What needs improvement?

Aqua Security could improve the forwarding of logging into Splunk and into other tools, it should be easier.

In the future, Aqua Security should work on minimizing its footprint because it consumes a lot of resources on the cluster itself. We are receiving a lot of logs out of it, but there was some problem with receiving the events in the right order. It should also concentrate on not only collecting logs but events, traces,  and somehow into the metrics side.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Aqua Security for approximately two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Aqua Security is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Aqua Security has been scalable in our usage.

Our setup was not very big, we had approximately 20 clusters and one central cluster. It scaled enough and we distribute it to the clusters, the enforcers on the nodes, it's a combination of centralized and distributed solution. I didn't use it over more than 20 clusters.

How are customer service and support?

I have used the technical support from Aqua Security. We had some issues we had to solve ourselves.

I rate the support from Aqua Security a three out of five.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Red Hat and Prisma Cloud. Prisma Cloud was too expensive and Red Hat security is more similar to risk management, not risk posture management, and is not a real security tool. We decided on Aqua Security.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup of Aqua Security is simple if you know some helm charts work.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Aqua Security is not cheap, and it's not very expensive, such as Splunk, they are in the middle.

What other advice do I have?

I rate Aqua Security an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
