LONDON, U.K. – JULY 13, 2023

Runecast Solutions Ltd., a leading provider of a cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) for AI-powered automation of risk-based vulnerability management, continuous compliance audits, container security and more efficient ITOM, is pleased to announce the positive results of its recent customer survey, showcasing the high satisfaction levels and key drivers for organizations adopting the Runecast platform.

For Runecast, not only customer satisfaction but customer success has been a guiding principle since its inception, as Runecast customer success stories can confirm. Runecast customer reviews on Capterra give the Runecast platform 4.8 out of 5 stars, while a more detailed overview from Runecast customer reviews on G2 show it receiving a full 10/10 for Quality of Support and 9.9/10 each for Ease of Setup and Ease of Use. Runecast reported in January that it ranked 'High Performer' with 'Best Support' across all quarterly 2022 G2 Grid® Reports as well.

“Customer success really does guide everything we do,” said Antun Stare, Customer Success Manager at Runecast. “We think of our customers more as business partners, because we won’t be successful unless we are helping them to achieve their organizational or team goals – so it’s not just about whether they are happy with Runecast or not, our interest goes way beyond that.”

Aside from the reviews that come via third-party peer-review portals, Runecast periodically asks customers to complete satisfaction surveys. A Runecast customer survey earlier this year received responses from job functions that included Architecture, Database, Development, Network & Systems Administration, Security, and Procurement – with 68.2% of respondents representing organizations of more than 500 employees and the vast majority being in the 500-10,000 range (59.1% overall).


A Runecast Customer Survey earlier this year revealed that the number one reason that drove organizations to adopt the AI-powered Runecast platform was "Saving time in detecting and remediating security incidents that can lead to severe or critical operational problems," with 27.3%.

This was followed by "Gaining real-time visibility of operational problems in our IT infrastructure" in a close second place, with 22.7%.

Tied for importance at third place, each with 13.6% of respondents, were: "Making sure that our systems are compliant and follow industry security best practices" and "Having access to information about hardware compatibility, potential bugs, and security risks with the new versions or updates before they manifest as real issues."

More generally "Reducing the number of security incidents" took the next spot, with 9.1% of responses.

For the question "Why did you purchase Runecast instead of any other solution?" a full 90.9% of respondents said, "I didn't find another solution with all the capabilities that Runecast provides in a single platform."

As multiple options could be selected, coming in second at 45.5% was "It provides an easily navigable user experience. It needs no training to start working with it."

Third and fourth places went to "It provides dedicated security issue information by compliance authority through a single platform" and "It offers an extended knowledge base that others don't supply," with 40.9% and 36.4%, respectively.

Other factors included the variety of technologies that Runecast supports, its aid in preventing configuration drift, and its capabilies ranging from on-premises to cloud to containers.

Likewise, when asked how easy it was to solve the aforementioned issues with Runecast, 90.9% selected the best-possible 8-10 range, with the remaining 9% choosing the also-good 6-7 range.

“We are continuously talking with our customers about their evolving needs and improving Runecast with new features to help them stay ahead of the curve,” added Mr. Stare. “Even between major releases we are delivering weekly definition updates that often come with new features added, and many of these are based on our customers’ goals.”
