We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The console and tools are very user-friendly."
"Good file integrity monitoring features."
"The most valuable feature is the centralized console, which can handle different products that we have."
"The most valuable feature is the endpoint protection system."
"Over the last two years, they've enhanced a lot, especially in regard to integration with OpenStack."
"One of the big improvements between the NSX-V and NSX-T is that in NSX-T you are no longer dependent on V-Center anymore."
"From a security standpoint, the customer was able to better secure critical workloads while routing L2/L3 worked normally, giving them more confidence that they would be ready for any potential security incident mitigation or outage (DR)."
"The most valuable features for us at this early stage are the interface and the integration with existing VMware solutions."
"Some of the key features I find most valuable are the highly graphical user interface, virtualization of networks, and Microsoft application compatibility. It has all the functionality that we require."
"It's a beneficial tool."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to create, develop, and deploy servers in minutes to hours, rather than days."
"Overall, for me, it's a good solution and has been working well."
"They need to develop a more flexible product that can be scaled such that it fits well into a small business or a bigger, enterprise-level solution."
"The support is very bad. They're not fast at all. Trend Micro's support is much better."
"Could have better reporting capabilities and better support."
"This solution clashes with Microsoft defender, which results in performance degradation on the machine."
"We have done three installations and we have not had any critical issues. The time it took for the installation was approximately two days. However, they should provide better documentation."
"In the future, the solution should be compliant with internet NIC."
"One drawback is this solution requires a lot of other products in the VMware ecosystem to have a full end-to-end operation orchestration monitoring. You have to buy a lot of add-ons to fully utilize the functionality."
"There are always issues integrating with Cisco."
"The technical support could use some improvement."
"Quite a complex solution."
"Their licensing model should make it easier to purchase licenses."
"I would like to see automation capabilities in the deployment process."

"We are using a perpetual license to use the solution and we have support."
"The price of this product is too high."
"It is an expensive product, but cheaper than some competing solutions."
