Pricing Advice

What users are saying about Cisco SecureX pricing:

  • "You can spend less money for another solution, but if you really want to have a good solution you have to pay. We are happy that we are getting such a good solution for what we are spending."

Combines multiple sources of security intelligence, making it easy to correlate events in our environment with those outside of it

What is our primary use case?

We have a total of about 150 customers with about 6,500 users and we handle their IT. There are 300 sites all over the Netherlands from which we get all the intel and we feed it into SecureX. It's our central point where we collect everything very easily. When we see something happening we can take the security feed, look at the event in an organization, and SecureX shows us what's going on. It helps us analyze and understand things. All the security solutions such as firewalls, email security, web security, endpoint security, and antivirus report into SecureX where we have a dashboard that… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "SecureX takes all the separate pieces of security within your company, adds in intelligence from different sites and services on the internet, and makes them work together."
  • "The automation and orchestration could be simpler. It could be that all the other parts are that easy to use so that these stick out as a negative, but that's the trickiest part for us. The workflows within the orchestration are just a bit more difficult."

What other advice do I have?

We haven't worked on automating all the manual processes in our security operations yet. We want to implement more of them, however, we're still looking into the details. This year we'll be starting to use the orchestration feature. That way, an end-user can forward an email and it will automatically be checked and he'll get a report back. Those are the kinds of automations we'll start using this year. You only need two or three hours to get everything set up, to put things into it, and to see how it works, with zero impact onsite. You don't need any extra resources. There's nothing fancy to…

Brings all our data into a central point and shows us many data connections between multiple environments

What is our primary use case?

We use it to track our emails and to secure our endpoints. SecureX is a really big tool. If somebody tries to attack us with a virus, SecureX helps us to find that email quickly. Our staff members use laptops, computers, and other devices, but they don't have a lot of knowledge about the whole "IT war." There have been viruses and SecureX has enabled us to protect those users, and our systems and components as well. We have used it to solve spam and phishing attacks that are really popular these days. In our company we have over 20,000 users, so you can imagine how many emails we have on a… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Using SecureX, a tool provided by Cisco, we can easily integrate it with many of our other Cisco products such as Cisco ISE and many networking devices."
  • "I'm not sure that I would call it a bug, but sometimes the solution is a little slow."

What other advice do I have?

The biggest lesson I've learned from using SecureX is that, before, I thought that if you have a solution that handles many things and that can be used in many areas, it could not be a good solution. Working with SecureX, I realized that I was wrong. A good company like Cisco can provide a tool that you can use in many areas, a tool that provides many solutions for many models, with many features, and it can be really good. That solution can also be integrated with many other products, not only from Cisco but from third-party companies. Working with SecureX made me realize that you can have a…

Brings multiple security products together in a single pane of glass, allowing us to quickly see security on our network

What is our primary use case?

We are using SecureX to protect all of our users and devices, both onsite and offsite, no matter what network they're on. We wanted a solution that would integrate across various platforms that we purchased through Cisco.

Pros and Cons

  • "One of the most valuable features is the simplicity of deploying SecureX. It's very easy to do that and then you gain very detailed visibility into everything that's going on in your network and, obviously, at the device level. There's just a wealth of information that you can pull from all of these products that are part of SecureX. You know exactly if you have an issue or not."
  • "If they could make the Cisco Umbrella piece a little bit more advanced or easier to manage, that would help. We use it for filtering and when you compare it to a normal content filter, it lacks some functionality."

What other advice do I have?

Meet with Cisco representatives or their reseller to get a demo of their products. Then, reach out to some clients that are using it and get their feedback on it. That will show you that it's a solution that you need to invest in. I would give SecureX a 10 out of 10, and I really do mean that. We've had really good luck with Cisco and all of their products. It's a great all-in-one solution for us and we've been extremely happy.
