We don't use Cisco Stealthwatch for threat detection. We use it more for information gathering.

Cisco Stealthwatch is used not only for analyzing security threats but also as a general network performance diagnostic tool.

Stealthwatch has analytics and threat protection capabilities up there with the industry best. It's a super powerful database on the backend, basically giving you access to all the latest and greatest threat detection events that are out there.

Engineer at Charter Communications, Inc.
We're able to pick out the individual traffic flows for specific users and even individual sessions across the network and reconstruct timelines of activity after the fact, if needed, or use the data in real time to plan out network capacity and growth.

The solution's analytics and thrust detection capability are good. We're still adjusting it. It's a little hypersensitive, but it is working right now.

Network Engineer at UC San Diego Health System
This solution has definitely also reduced our incident response time, because we had no visibility before.
I also believe the solution has increased our organization's threat protection rate. The actual threat reports are run by our Infosec security person, but we are actually using this solution for that too. We're having reports generated so that our network engineering doesn't have to do the review. That team is responsible for reviewing reports and then we work with them to locate and do the next steps.

Considering all the data on the network, I believe that the analytics of Cisco Stealthwatch are pretty decent. I would like to see it better organized when I'm looking at it. If I hand it to another NOC engineer, they may not know what they're looking at, so I would prefer it to be more clean and structured, making it easier to use.

We can monitor the traffic in real time from the moment of the issue to past months in order to see the flow of data and when exactly it spiked. We can then drill down to the root cause of the spike.

In terms of their analytics, we use the stats that we get from the tool itself to see that we're using a high utilization of the tool. As far as troubleshooting, it helps us to analyze some of the effects that our customers are seeing.

Analytics and threat detection capabilities are a little overwhelming. I would say it's about average.

Network Operations Manager at Philips Electronics
Its analytics and threat detection capabilities are also pretty good. Stealthwatch finds things that we don't normally see. There are false positives but it's pretty good at catching things that are doing bad things.

This is a very good tool, although it is just one piece of our security. We have other security tools that we use to help detect threats.

Ken Poteate
Security Analysist at Amwins Group
While it captures users' activity and what they're doing, it doesn't really need to reveal threats. It doesn't need to for us. If we set an alert that says, "If X..." it's hard to make that useful based on behavior analysis. One employees behavior is going to be different from another so setting absolute rules might not make sense.

Network Administrator at a mining and metals company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Cisco Stealthwatch has improved our organization's analytics and threat protection capabilities by catching threats early on. We are still at the baselining stage, but I can also say that our organization improved dramatically when we found out that a host was constantly talking to an FTP server. It turned out to be an employee that was going to be terminated and he was trying to pull data from the FTP server constantly. He pulled three or four GBs and we caught it with this tool. It saved us a net fortune.

I’ve found that it is a very useful product. I would like it to be able to better integrate with Firepower, but it meets the needs that it was promising from the beginning.

The analytics and threat detection capabilities are pretty extensive. We still need to use other tools and mechanisms to analyze data, but it does the job that we’re looking for.
