This is the best possible solution for enterprise-level organizations where server counts will be in the thousands. To manage these and understand the communication can be very cumbersome without this tool. Ease of creation map zone and application-wise can be relaxing to OS teams and support teams as well. There is no limit to labeling schema of servers and it gives the freedom to do so.

Cons
Acalvio Technologies
  • One of the negative points that we have found in this program is, by far, its cost and payment plans that it offers to each of its new users, the truth is that the rate seems somewhat high to us.
  • It should be mentioned that the weight and size of this program can be very high, this is a problem because it compromises the space on my system and with other equally important programs.

  • Limited support to legacy infrastructure.
  • Integration with third party is a bit tedious.

The solution is deployed throughout the organization. Teams are working and integrating it with the help desk tool wherever required. Helps in identifying the network traffic flows in lateral movement and east and west as well. Allows policies by default and later fine-tuning to be done to narrow it and enforce blocking action. Exporting reports from the tool is easy and can be observed for any issues.

Support has been available 24*7. It also depends on criticality but support is available. Also, the right expertise from the team helps in identifying the issue quickly and this helps in less production downtime if required. The ticket is resolved with RCA.

Return on Investment
Acalvio Technologies
  • This program was designed to provide multiple autonomous solutions to each of its users immediately, in our case we are satisfied with the security that this program provides us every time we work.
  • We have the knowledge of working at least with different programs with the same shadowplex acalvio function, but none has been as effective as this one, since the level of technology allows it to be much more effective in ruling out any type of threat.
