FireEye Network Security Review

Stable threat protection that is easy to set up, and the appliances are good


What is most valuable?

The server appliance is good.

What needs improvement?

Technical packaging could be improved.

It would be helpful to receive access to the administration of the product.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with FireEye Network Security for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

If you choose a good appliance, it could be scalable. 

You have a login to your applications.

We are 600 users who are on the payroll, but in total, we have 3,000 and 2,400 of which are volunteers.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is rather good. But it's very restrictive, it's false of maintenance. 

If you're don't authenticate it each month, you have to ask for another password and it's a little bit repressive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we have not used another solution, because it's a compliment to TruePoint Securities.

The CheckPoint product is very strong, but we have found that some cases on CheckPoint lessons are not on the list.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward, you can do it by yourself. 

You don't have to find a partner or a FireEye expert.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is not reasonable. The user fee is not as high but the maintenance fee is expensive.

What other advice do I have?

For the next project, we will be doing comparisons for massive attacks.

We have been customers for five years and we have a very good relationship with them.

It's not the first line of defense. It's for us to subline of defense itself. It depends on the analysis of the threat.

An alternative tool could be Endpoint security.

I think we will put in service for Endpoint Security, soon. But network security is aligned more in your defense unison.

I would rate FireEye Network Security an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
