Cisco NGIPS Review

Does a great job of detecting and stopping threats


What is our primary use case?

We use it for threat prevention.

How has it helped my organization?

It has increased our security posture and has contributed substantially to our security maturity by stopping threats.

What is most valuable?

  • It has good intelligence.
  • It does a great job at stopping threats.

What needs improvement?

In the next release I would like to see better reporting. I also find it's hard to act on the data it gives you.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is excellent.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is excellent.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support has been excellent.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is complex. That's just the nature of that product. It's a really advanced product so it takes a lot of technical knowledge to implement it.

What about the implementation team?

We used a reseller. 

What was our ROI?

We have definitely seen ROI, but I can't quantify it.

What other advice do I have?

Get a good demo to test it out or do a proof of concept to see if it it's what you're looking for.

I rate it an eight out of ten. Eight because it's good at detecting and stopping threats. Those other two points that would make it a ten are better usability and reporting.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
