Does anyone have an opinion or review on Dome9 vs. Evident.IO for visibility and security in AWS?

CTO in Software, 11 - 50 employees was acquired by Palo Alto Networks and from what I understand, was "iced" (PA also purchased Redlock). I've met with the Dome9 CEO before and like their approach, so perhaps worth at least an initial discussion.

Thanks. I forgot about the PA acquisition.

Only experience with was pre-acquisition, so I would not rely on it now that Palo Alto owns it. Cannot comment directly on Dome9.

(Would not rely on my feedback, not the product, I should clarify.)

Both software offers good security identification and protection against vulnerabilities in the cloud space, as you can see Palo Alto  bought Evident I.O. and Checkpoint bought Dome9. The major difference is the risk management functionalities in Evident I.O.

We evaluated both for our cloud infrastructure, in my opinion dome9 provided us better integration and flexibility. Evident is also good with respect to visibility on your aws infrastructure how ever few challenges we witnessed with pci audit and integration.

I poked around with a resident security expert and they only had exposure to Dome9. They really liked the visualization and clarity into the network overview to quickly point out areas which are insecure or need attention. Didn’t seem overly thrilled, but wasn’t negative- sort of indifferent. They did point out that AWS has similar capabilities/features but Dome9 did a better job at presenting them.

Dome9 is the better of the 2.  It could improve its integration with other security tools and increased AI capabilities.

Have you looked at either Netskope or Skyhigh for the same functionality?  Not to complicate your candidate field... :)

Yes, Skyhigh became MVision, McAfee bought them.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
