What is most valuable?

The simplicity of use is its most valuable feature. You can very clearly see things. You have the ability to go back in time and get details, where the malware started, what happened and where it went from the minute it got in. It offers a… more»

What needs improvement?

It should be doing backups. Every stage that this malware is going forward, it should snapshot the situation. Then I could go back to the first stage before it got infected. It doesn't have this option, and I know that other manufacturers… more»

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

The costs of 50 licenses of AMP for three years is around $9,360. There are no additional costs.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were previously using Check Point Sandblast Agent. We switched because it wasn't as stable as this one. We had some problems with it and we needed to contact their support and it wasn't so good. I would get tough questions from my… more»

What other advice do I have?

Just purchase the license, download it, install it to an active device, the main controller, and send it to everyone. My advice is that you need to delete your existing endpoint security solution because AMP actually contains everything… more»

What is most valuable?

The most important thing is that they're cloud-based. And Cisco has introduced Cisco Umbrella, which includes AMP, Open DNS, and they integrated certain solutions, and AMP is part of their portfolio. That's why it's adding value.

What needs improvement?

When we're talking about anti-malware protection, AMP is a very good solution, but again, the CSO level reports are not generated. There is a dashboard, there is a report, but again, those reports have to be taken to the CSO, because when it comes to security, we always want to have high-level… more»

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

If you talk about the commercial aspect, this solution is not the Gartner one. We have a challenge because there are other solutions which are Gartner solutions, where we have competition. So we have to justify, explain, show the value propositions and then we sell are able to sell.

What other advice do I have?

I would say that if you have a vision or plan for security, and want to have an integrated solution, AMP can be a very integral part of this digitization roadmap. AMP should be considered if you have digitization or a digitalization plan, which most if not all organizations are going for. So I think… more»

What is most valuable?

* Scalability * Ability to integrate with SIEM. * Advanced threat protection for customers.

How has it helped my organization?

We are on proof of concept phase and will see how it works. I hope it will help decrease mean time to detect and respond, because it provides scalability, and we could… more»

What needs improvement?

We would like to have an API integration with a SIEM solution, because as far as I know, it currently hasn't yet been released. We are looking forward to it because it's… more»

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

Our partner in Norway does the price negotiation.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We are providing our customers multiple solutions depending on their needs. So, it's more like what our customer needs. We could go with Cisco or maybe we could with… more»

What other advice do I have?

We have some mature security services, like anti-malware. We are looking to broaden our service portfolio and are on the first steps to climb further. You should always… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are looking for cost-effective, efficient solutions for our customers, and Cisco happens to be one of the vendors who fits into that scope. Microsoft is another vendor… more»

What is most valuable?

We are a Cisco shop, so it just integrates with everything else that we are doing.

How has it helped my organization?

I am told that we get over 100 million emails a month. This filters them down and allows only somewhere about three million emails, which is a great help.

What needs improvement?

I would like them to add whatever makes filtering more advanced in scanning and blocking for malware in emails. It would just improve the product further. I think they are working on this, the continuous improvement aspect.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We wanted to get a homogeneous environment where everything works together and is integrated well together. This was a big advantage and big driver for us.

What other advice do I have?

Seriously consider it. It blocks a lot of emails. Look at the market, do your evaluation, and pick the right solution for you. We are fairly mature in our security program maturity, but there is always room for improvement.

What is most valuable?

The ease of implementation is a very valuable aspect of the solution. It's also very user-friendly.

What needs improvement?

The reporting and analytics areas of the solution need to be improved.

What other advice do I have?

We use the hybrid deployment model. I would advise other potential users that if they are looking for a long term security solution, this particular solution is going to add value to their cybersecurity strategy. Cisco AMP is one of the solutions that adds value to your cybersecurity roadmap. It should not be considered as a solution, but rather as a strategy. I would rate the solution nine out of… more»

What is most valuable?

Real-time threat prevention using sandboxing, file trajectory, and retrospective security. On the prevention side, AMP has nine engines. New feature AMP Visibility (beta) is an IR orchestration tool, where the local AMP for Endpoint Intelligence, Talos Intelligence, Threat Grid, AMP global… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Provides enhanced security, lowering IT risks, and IT operational costs by integrating with Cisco NGFW, network security and email security.

What needs improvement?

It does not include: * Encryption * Decryption of local file shares * Disks and URL filtering are done by separate product (Umbrella/OpenDNS).

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

Pricing can be more expensive than similar software that does less functionality, but not recognized by customers.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of this solution are the IPS and the integration with ISE.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has allowed us to segment the organization to provide better security.

What needs improvement?

In the next version of this solution, I would like to see the addition of local authentication.

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

The licensing fees for this solution are paid on a yearly basis.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good product but there are always going to be some issues. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We chose this product based on research and for its integration with other Cisco security products.
