Has solid security but the setup is complex

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the security."
  • "Since we are working from home, we would like to have the proper training for Aqua."

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the security. Our clientele cares about the speed of the integration especially if they're doing digital transformation. If you compare it to other container security Aqua is not as caught up in terms of the migration. 

What needs improvement?

We work with another Philippine company that will be providing local support, but our company has more traction with the executives of our clientele. We'd rather have the same skillset or improve our skillsets to be trained by our Aqua counterpart. We haven't done any trainings apart from a webinar. Since we are working from home, we would like to have the proper training for Aqua.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Aqua Security for two years. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Our client has around 5,000 users. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I'm the person who manages technical support. I have contacted the team in Singapore. They're pretty good. The person who has been helping us is very knowledgable. 

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

We previously used Alcide. Aqua gives us more features and is more solid in terms of security. Aqua is more of a market share leader. There is more of a technology advantage. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. We spent around 12 days on the planning during our POC. Planning, testing, and mitigation took around 10-12 days.

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

Aqua is a bit expensive so you have to really justify going for it or not. 

What other advice do I have?

The deployment should be improved. After this pandemic, half of the workforce has been working from so we need to provide our clients a solution that will have an easier deployment. 

I would rate it a seven out of ten. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Microsoft Azure

Solves a lot o problems and is easy to use and manage

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are that it's easy to use and manage."
  • "They want to release improvements to their product to work with other servers because now there are more focused on the Kubernetes environment. They need to improve the normal servers. I would like to have more options."

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to sequelize all of the ACD and to review the images. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are that it's easy to use and manage.

What needs improvement?

They want to release improvements to their product to work with other servers because now there are more focused on the Kubernetes environment. They need to improve the normal servers. I would like to have more options. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is pretty good. It's easy to scale. 

In my company, three or four people use this product. 

How are customer service and technical support?

They aren't so good. They don't always follow up with the problems. Support needs improvement, they should be more proactive. They're not always as helpful as we want them to be. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. The first time you deploy you, you need support but after that, it's easy to understand the documentation that they provide. After two or three times it's easy. 

It takes around one week to get all of the environments in place but to do a PoC is only two days. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a nine out of ten. 

My advice would be to go for it. This solution solves a lot of problems. I would recommend it. 

Aqua focuses more on Kubernetes and Docker but they don't have the option to have an environment with other servers so I would like for them to provide more options. There should be more integration with the cloud. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Amazon Web Services (AWS)
