Ahmed Hamdi says in a Cisco NGIPS review
Network Infrastructure Program Manager at a non-tech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
In the previous version, some features were not enabled. For example, you could not access the VPN. So that was one of the downsides of the product. In this latest version, after enabling these features in the previous version and using them, it's been good. Inspection, application, and inspection in the cloud, the detail in the cloud for an indication of compromise and the malicious activity re-hashing are all valuable features. It's more of the cloud and the malicious activities aspects that define this application. View full review »

The most valuable feature we got out of Stealthwatch is to be able to, while troubleshooting, go deep into one of our interfaces and verify what the bandwidth is and if there's any activity there that's causing problems. In terms of their analytics, we use the stats that we get from the tool itself to see that we're using a high utilization of the tool. As far as troubleshooting, it helps us to analyze some of the effects that our customers are seeing. View full review »
Rob Hartstone says in a Cisco Stealthwatch review
Network Operations Manager at Philips Electronics
The fact that it can identify down to an IP address of a system that is causing problems, or potentially causing problems, is very valuable. Its analytics and threat detection capabilities are also pretty good. Stealthwatch finds things that we don't normally see. There are false positives but it's pretty good at catching things that are doing bad things. View full review »

The most valuable feature of this solution is data hoarding because it catches threats on a frequent basis that we had no idea of. Like if certain hosts were talking to certain hosts. With this tool, we got that kind of information and it allows us to see when two hosts are talking when they shouldn't be talking at all. View full review »
