Cisco Defense Orchestrator Review

A simple and centralized way to manage all products


What is our primary use case?

We provide consultation for all Cisco solutions. We give consultations to customers for buying a preventive solution like Cisco Email Security, Cisco IronPort, Cisco Security, Cisco Web Security. 

What is most valuable?

With Cisco Defense Orchestrator, we can manage the complete Cisco Security solution. It provides a simple and centralized way to manage all products. 

What needs improvement?

They can centralize all products and provide a correlation about an incident and the response.

They can also provide an on-premises solution. Currently, Cisco Defense Orchestrator is just for cloud deployments, not for on-premises deployments. Customers have to manage it on the cloud. We are based in Vietnam, and most of the customers here prefer to have on-premises deployments. Customers, especially from banking and government sectors, do not prefer to do anything on the cloud. Some of the small enterprises use the cloud.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with this solution for around four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability depends upon the Cisco cloud. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Because it's on the cloud, Cisco Defense Orchestrator can scale up very well.

How are customer service and technical support?

They have good technical support. They're very good, and they can very well help a customer with implementation.

How was the initial setup?

Cisco Defense Orchestrator is on the cloud. It's really fast to deploy.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Cisco Defense Orchestrator. Cisco is a very good company and has a reputation. They can provide a comprehensive solution to customers. They have a lot of defense solutions for the network and endpoint security.

Cisco buys a lot of solutions and has a lot of acquisitions. When they combine them into one central management, the setup can be quite complex.

I would rate Cisco Defense Orchestrator an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud
