It is suited well for ad-hoc and scheduled application vulnerability scans. You must review the results to manually filter out false-positives. You must always keep in mind that this is only a vulnerability scan. It can only find a certain class of vulnerabilities, and it can only do that so well. You should definitely not rely on this tool alone for identifying problems. That being said, I have used it along with every other major commercial vulnerability scanner and find it to the best overall ROI compared to more expensive commercial scanners that don't necessarily give you a better user experience or better vulnerability results. I rarely need support from the vendor, but when I do, they have been responsive and able to solve the issue quickly.

IBM Cloud Managed Istio

Clearly, the [IBM Cloud Managed Istio] tool is very useful when you have multiple services and each service is connecting with other services through APIs in different networks. To manage this type of complex network, [IBM Cloud Managed Istio] is very useful. It comes with a license that can increase the billing of your project so make sure if your application network mesh, monitoring cannot be managed on your own then you can use it.If your application is not very complex then you have many tools available like Grafana, Prometheus, Sumo Logic, which you can integrate individually with your cluster and implement. In this type of scenario, it is better to not use [IBM Cloud Managed Istio] and it will serve your purpose as well.

Cons

Acunetix by Invicti

  • Does not support multiple endpoints well (e.g. apps and services that do not reside at the same URL).
  • Has authentication problems with modern enterprise apps which involve a lot of redirects to unrelated endpoints, federated IDs, SSO, etc. This is related to the first point.
  • The vulnerability detection capability is not as robust as Burp Suite Pro + extensions, Metasploit + auxiliary modules, Nmap + scripts, etc.
Aaron Bryson | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Cloud Managed Istio

  • More tutorials on Istio can be provided so that it can be used frequently
  • Can add more functionalities to handle the traffic
  • More security can be provided for networks

IBM has good track record, but we haven't used their support after getting setup initially. However, the training made available by them during our introductory experience was good, and provided us with a lot of useful background knowledge along with guidance on how to address the specific use cases we were looking for.

IBM Cloud Managed Istio

We did not use IBM professional services to implement istio. Our experience was such that getting it setup quickly did not require assistance. We did however, make use of IBM's training opportunities at kube con 2019, which included a walkthrough setup of istio on IBM Cloud. This provided us with a strong base on which to build.

Alternatives Considered

Acunetix by Invicti

Every year, we re-evaluate the tools we are using and licensing. We balance the ever-changing vendor licensing-models, costs, tool features/usability, etc. For the last few years, this has been the best overall commercial tool for our specific use case. However, this is only one of many tools that we use and need.

IBM Cloud Managed Istio

The ease of use and the scalability have been major factors in the decision making. We like that there is not a lot of repetitive work that must be done in order to bring in existing concepts and ideas into different work streams that have similar but not the same challenges. This cuts down on design time and also allows for duplication of best practices.

Return on Investment

Acunetix by Invicti

  • Saved money compared to other commercial scanners, especially over the long run.
  • Scan speed seems to be pretty good compared to some of the bulkier commercial products out there. However, that largely has to do with proper configuration.
  • A downside is that is requires a bit of extra work just to get it set up to scan APIs, web services, etc.
Aaron Bryson | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Cloud Managed Istio

  • They should have better-managed upgrades and fixes, the constant [upgrades] has caused [a] negative impact on the business.
  • The tool has helped effectively manage the huge data traffic which is one of the positive impacts it has created.
