This is pretty good AV product - lightweight, easy to install, and easy on system resources. It will take some getting used to on the end user side, it doesn't scan in a traditional way, and it does not have a taskbar icon so it hard to know if it's working or installed. My only complaint would be the false positives which I know every AV system has, but the problem with Barkly is that it alerts the users with a message (which they freak out about) and it alerts IT with an email. Again, not a major issue, but it can be annoying until it is overridden. The override process is super easy though, so its again, not a big deal.

Scenarios most suited - 1) All the Cyber Security focused development environments 2) Definitely a must for Financial Clients since it deals with live money transactions - Hence it is imperative to keep the Network and tech asset environment secure, and compliant to standards 3) IAM is another area where it plays an IMP part - For eg one of our healthcare clients where they wanted to restrict access 4) Dashboards are also great, we can share the results to GISO/CISO level folks - Custom dashboard feature

Pros
Fortra
  • Customer Service. Usually, I'd put the technical details up front, and they're good with that too. But the service from pre-sales all the way through onboarding and continued account management is top tier. Our onboarding schedule got messed up, partly because of us, but that was rather minor. I always get prompt replies to any tickets, and they've even reached out to discuss my feature requests. When it comes to security, it's critical to have a responsive team, and they've got it.
  • Detection seems good. It's hard to quantify exactly, but it seems that they always detect the bad actors. And when we get an alert, they include a bunch of details so we know what kind of scan they're trying to do, how far they got, etc. You can't prevent everyone from doing a scan on your IP, but it gives you a really good idea of where your soft spots might be. And if you're getting those low-level alerts, it's a reminder that it's there and working if you have a major event too.
  • Very easy setup. This goes back to their customer support to some extent, as they walk you through all the steps required. But it's also about their technical solution, it's not so overly complex that it's fragile, nor does it take a great deal of time to deploy. And it's been zero effort to maintain since then.

  • There is not a comprehensive amount of documentation on how to set up best practices.
  • Our initial set up assistance from Proofpoint approved vendor did not go smoothly.
  • The ability to add more customized widgets in the main overview screen would be helpful.

I was using Alert Logic Insight for myself to improve my skills and ability to it. My organization was not happy using our previous website security program so I recommended for them to use this software. It has been more than 1 year and still, they are using this program without having any problem so far.

First and foremost reason of our client selecting CheckPoint CloudGuard Posture Management / Dome9 was because they already had CheckPoint Firewalls which are in active use e.g. R75.40 and R82.x products. Customization Vs these other Vendors is another great asset Reporting is one more standout feature, + Multi-cloud capabilities Centralized dashboarding is smooth to navigate as compared to other Vendors Syslog handling is much better as compared to some other vendors , Memory and space issues if planned well are less
