The solution’s AJAX-VM provides constant reverse proxy uptime. It has been very positive for our security operations. When people are trying to access the SaaS solution, it protects us from downloading any of that data and experiencing any type of attacks

The initial setup was straightforward, which was a huge win. That mostly goes to the fact that they are agentless. We didn't have to sit there deploying thousands of agents and all the things that go along with that type of deployment. We were up and running very quickly.

We are able to verify what is getting saved out onto the cloud. It allows us to have some DLP rules, since we have to be HIPAA compliant. If some personal health information has been uploaded to Office 365, then we are able to detect that sort of thing and account for it. We have set up rules to prevent people from doing that.

The biggest thing that I like about this product is that it's easy to use and teach. When we have somebody new starting to work with the product, it's easy to teach them. It's also easy to use the product as it does so much.

The core CASB solution is the most valuable part. It allows us to put policies in place around which devices can log into our cloud applications. We have a policy that states that only company devices can access these cloud applications.

The solution is very good when it comes to securing us against data leakage, because of the other proxy. It also has API scanning or data at rest. It inspects data in motion, which is the proxy, and then it has the data at rest, which is the API scanning. We can inspect for anything we want: file fingerprinting, PHI-sensitive data, PCI-sensitive data. It does not matter. We can usually find it and block it in transit and do our remediation with it. It could either be block, encrypt, or allow and watermark the file to follow it and see where it goes. It allows for those different scenarios.

Their pricing is extremely fair. They need to make sure they pay attention to how the licensing works. There are many licensing methods. One way is the number of endpoint users you will have. And they license for every single application that you're going to put into the proxy system. They also have a few other types of licensing around CSPM, so there are many components. Bitglass didn't misrepresent their licensing structure in any way, but as a company we didn't really look at what it meant. Fortunately, we feel we got a really good deal with Bitglass and we got everything we need. We didn't have to go back and buy any additional licensing. However, if we had not just blindly gotten the right deal, we might have needed to go back and revisit the licensing structure with our account manager. We really didn't fully understand the way all the licensing worked until after the fact. Do your due diligence and make sure you understand. Don't over-buy your license and don't under-buy.

There is training involved. If you're going to add more people to it, such as cross train more of your group, there's a cost. Other than that, that's it. We have paid exactly what the invoices have said. We signed a three-year contract and not gone above it. Understand what it is you're paying for with a CASB. Do your homework and understand what your use cases will be, because you will pay based on use case. Always be weary of someone who comes in and just wants to cut prices. If they're going to lose to a competitor and just whacks their price in half just to get the business. If it didn't match your needs based on what the product does in the beginning, you're going to be sorry. Know your use cases and purchase towards your use case. Make sure that you get a strategic business partner when it comes to your vendors.

I wish they would advance more into the endpoint DLP solution. Currently they do not do anything around endpoint, they're still strictly cloud-based. The forward proxy is really the only thing they do. What I would like to see them do is to scan machines, workstations and servers, for information we might not want on those machines. That would be huge. We have to consider the fact that that's not really their arena, but I think if they would come into that arena, they would open themselves to providing a more complete solution.

Their new SASE (secure access service edge) product would have been the one thing I would have requested. Now that they have that platform, I'd like to see it as integrated and seamless as possible with the core product. That's what they're working towards and that's where we're seeing the advancements.
