Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The real bonus is the fact that we can secure applications, all the way down to the individual services, on each host. It's actually more granular security than we can get out of a traditional firewall.""We like the centralized management of the firewalls. Until we installed Guardicore Centra, we managed all our firewalls individually, so making changes was complicated, difficult, and time-consuming.""The most valuable feature is the visibility of processes and connections.""This tool greatly helps in understanding the footprint of the attacks.""The interface and dashboard are amazing.""From day one, you get threat intelligence. It will immediately block active threats, which has been useful.""Its deception features are great, providing a rich telemetry of lured origins, and are a great resource for any active defense strategy."

"The flexibility of the solution is its most valuable feature."

More Illumio Adaptive Security Platform Pros »

Cons
"Needs more customization of honeypots and a vaster catalog of systems able to be mimicked.""The product needs a few features like enhanced user policies and payload-level inspection to improve the offering.""Sometimes, the speed needs improvement, especially when it comes to the generation of maps, where it can be a bit slow.""The long-term management of the security policies could be improved with some kind of automation platform, something like Chef or Puppet or Ansible, to help you manage the policies after day-one... to then manage the policies and changes to those policies, going forward, through some type of automation process is not turning out to be really easy.""The maps could go a bit faster. They are useful but slightly slow.""In our version, when using the terminal server, we cannot exclude user tasks for each session."

More Guardicore Centra Cons »

"The interaction we've had with the support team hasn't been ideal. Technical support should be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Guardicore Centra provides better value for money than NSX, was the other solution that we looked at, which was too expensive for what it does.""This is not a cheap solution but you have to consider the bigger picture, which is what it is giving you.""Compared to the pricing we were seeing from both Illumio and Edgewise, Guardicore was very competitive."

Top Answer: This is not a cheap solution but you have to consider the bigger picture, which is what it is giving you. It provides functionality that is similar in some ways to traditional firewalls and with that… more »
Top Answer: In our version, when using the terminal server, we cannot exclude user tasks for each session. When we upgrade, I expect that we can exclude user tasks for each session from the terminal.
