Cisco Stealthwatch Other Solutions Considered

The only other option was the one we were using at the time, which may not even be comparable because of visibility, and that was Riverbed. Riverbed was extremely expensive. Stealthwatch came out, and we jumped on board. It was not only cost alone that made us go with it. It was security which pushed us over the edge. The possibility of seeing in the packet these potentially proactive measures; things you can do to see patterns. The features were what won out. View full review »

Stealthwatch has almost everything we need. There's no reason to evaluate anyone else. We also have a WildPackets and a LiveAction engine. We use that for remote packet captures and not NetFlow data analytics. View full review »

Robert Ufer
Network Architect at Henry Ford health system
We were looking at NetScout and ThousandEyes, plus a couple of other similar solutions. We have a lot of NetScout products. We're trying to get into that space but we're not there yet. We're still too early. There are not a lot of products currently available for that specific function. There are a lot of half-solutions on the market. View full review »

We evaluated Darktrace after the fact. The Cisco Stealthwatch solution tied in well with our other Cisco products, so we decided that this was the way to go, for now. View full review »
Director9b3e
Director of Networking and Telecom at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We did evaluate another product called WhiteHat Security. The decision eventually came down to sticking with the system of the products. We wanted to kind of keep our products all in one family. View full review »

Network Engineer at a tech services company
I am responsible for the security of our organization's devices, so I did look at other options. Since this solution ties into other products, I wanted to use Duo Security and tie that together with StealthWatch. View full review »

Steffen Jensen
IT Network Engineer at a logistics company with 10,001+ employees
We looked into Darktrace, but we chose Stealthwatch because we have an ELA agreement, and that makes the product available to us already. But also in relation to actually the threat intelligence that Cisco has, they are fitting nicely in with the rest of our products. View full review »

We work very closely with Cisco directly and therefore we really just looked at Stealthwatch, because it was Cisco's product and they said this is what we do. View full review »

Douglas Bentley
Assistant Director of IT at University of Rochester Medical Center
We evaluated Plixer, but half of our medical center was already very familiar with Stealthwatch so it was an easy transition for us. The vendors on our shortlist were ePlus and First Light. We split the load between them. View full review »
