Azure Security Center is very easy to use, integrates well, and gives very good visibility on what is happening across your ecosystem. It also has great remote workforce capabilities and supports a multi-cloud environment very well. The dashboard gives clear, easy to understand reporting, and even has a compliance regulatory reporting function that will help identify gaps in your solution and quickly fix them. This can be a real cost-saver. Azure Security Center gives a comprehensive view of the total security structure of your organization. The solution is stable and very scalable.


We found Prisma Cloud integrated well with many different solutions. This solution does both development-side security and run-time security very well, which makes it extremely marketable. It offers traffic analysis, user activity, and vulnerability management. Prisma Cloud comes bundled with many different policies, which is very helpful. The dashboard is very informative and offers compliance tabs and other valuable management tabs.


Azure Security Center can be a bit complex and challenging to use for a non-technical person. The solution could be more flexible, as many policies don’t apply to every client. The licensing and pricing can also be pretty costly.


Prisma Cloud sometimes falls behind on keeping up with changes and updates with other solutions, causing some lag time within the solution. It may also be difficult for individuals who are not so tech-savvy. It is lacking a bit in compliance and risk perspectives and analysis.


Conclusion


Azure Security Center is great, especially if you are already functioning in an Azure ecosystem. It provides great management and regulatory compliance information. Prisma Cloud can seem inflexible and complicated to use, but if you have a solid plan from the beginning on how to deploy the solution throughout your organization and have done your homework, it can prove to be a very good solution as well.

Aqua Security is easy to use and very manageable. Its main focus is on Kubernetes and Docker. Security is a very valuable feature and their speed of integration is very good. The initial setup was very straightforward and went smoothly. This solution is stable with great scalability. We found that Prisma Cloud integrated well with many different solutions. This solution does both development-side security and run-time security very well, which makes it extremely marketable. It offers traffic analysis, user activity, and vulnerability management. Prisma Cloud comes bundled with many different policies, which is very helpful. The dashboard is very informative and offers compliance tabs and other valuable management tabs. Aqua Security does not have good options with other servers - more options would be better outside of the Kubernetes and Docker ecosystems. There should be better integration to the cloud. Deployment needs to be improved, too. Many of our clients continue to have their workforce continuing to work remotely, and deployment can be very problematic. The technical support is a bit spotty and should be more proactive in handling issues and concerns. Prisma Cloud sometimes falls behind on keeping up with changes and updates with other solutions, causing some lag time within the solution. It may also be difficult for individuals who are not so tech-savvy. It is lacking a bit in compliance and risk perspectives and analysis. Conclusions If you have a focus on Kubernetes and/or Docker, Aqua Security could be a great fit. This solution does solve a lot of other problems too. Prisma Cloud can seem inflexible and complicated to use, but if you have a solid plan from the beginning on how to deploy the solution throughout your organization and have done your homework, it can prove to be a very good solution as well.

Well, some times ago, EDR agents was moved to XDR but now, XDR is on "peak of inflated expectations", the second of five phases in product development hype. I'd rather wait a little bit, may be ZDR :)
