Overall Satisfaction with CloudGuard Dome9

We are currently using Proofpoint CloudGuard Dome9 for advanced threat protection across our AWS and Azure cloud environments. We also leverage the compliance and governance protections as well to ensure we are meeting audit requirements. The easy to read dashboard helps reduce time by providing a real-time snapshot of our cloud environments.
  • Advanced Threat protection via Check Point CloudGuard proven ThreatCloud intelligence feeds for malicious IP's is a nice feature.
  • We have not set up the cloud bots auto-remediation functionality yet, but from initial testing, it looks to be something worth utilizing.
  • Having reporting tie in's with our ServiceNow asset management platform is very handy.
  • 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.
  • Having one single pane of glass dashboard helps cut downtime for one tech to assess the overall health of the cloud.
  • The cost was a little high, and the setup time was longer than expected to leverage the functionality we paid for fully.
  • Overall a good product so far
We are also piloting Trend Micro Cloud App Security, but we don't have enough data to make a fair comparison, but from what I've seen, Check Point offers a much more comprehensive platform.

Yes

The threat intelligence feeds are nice in conjunction with Anti Virus, behavior analytics, and Intrusion detection capabilities make it an all-around solid product. The incident management piece could be better defined. No two-factor authentication from what we have seen so far is in place. The ability to detect misconfigurations is a little tricky to set up but will provide some positive insights.

Overall benefits outweigh any negatives. Cost is high, but you get what you pay for.
