CloudGuard Dome9

Dome9 can be used to have visibility into cloud assets and security policies across all the virtual networks, regions, and accounts on AWS, Azure and GCP. It also provides continuous enforcement of regulatory compliance standards and security best practices, with the ability to auto-remediate misconfigurations. So Dome9 is well suited for companies using cloud providers that want to take control of their resources.

Skybox Security

For any customer that has a complex network environment spanning globally, skybox helps manage firewall policy compliance for many vendors quite easy. It has a variety of security and network vendors that it is compatible with in its database.

Pros

CloudGuard Dome9

  • Minimal false positives if configured properly.
  • End to end visibility in real-time.
  • Multi platform monitoring.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Skybox Security

  • Skybox manages compliance for firewalls better than we have seen with other tools.
  • Skybox integrates into standard change management tools so change control can flow through Skybox and assist with all decisions to implement a change.
  • The Skybox network map is more detailed than other management tools showing us paths other tools didn't find.

Cons

CloudGuard Dome9

  • Needs to add features for an on-premise cloud.
  • Cost is a little high.

Skybox Security

  • User experience. On the first approach, it's not the simplest tool that I have ever used.
  • Web-based console. In my honest opinion it's very important [to have] this type of functionality to extend the use of Skybox.
  • Too many updates of the product.

Checkpoint support is great. They provide great SLAs and they comply with service times accordingly.

The support team needs to be improved especially in their response and awareness about recent bugs in their solution. For example, sometimes they are not aware about how to integrate specific vendors like Microsoft Azure and they still don't have answers to it until now.

Alternatives Considered

CloudGuard Dome9

Most products have their pros and cons but Dome9 does everything Evident.io and Redlock can do and more. Evident was a good tool but merging the two products into one complicated things.

CloudGuard Dome9 does not have a suite for an on-premise datacenter.

Return on Investment

CloudGuard Dome9

  • For production environments it is worth the investment.
  • Getting to know how many assets you have helps with cost savings.
Oscar Martinez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Skybox Security

  • Overall ROI is good as this product is an augmentation for us but we already have a mature security program with an experienced security team so the ROI is high.
