Cisco Stealthwatch Primary Use Case

Consultant at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
* Monitoring * Security It is a monitoring solution and network, because many times what we see is circuit oversaturation. Then, we want to know why and where it is coming from. We were using Stealthwatch before the upgrade, since it came out. We have a good partnership with Cisco. We have NAS engineers. We have a quarterly meeting with Cisco. Generally, when they come out with a new solution, like when Stopwatch first came out, we jump on board. Therefore, we have been with it for awhile. View full review »
Travis Bugh
Senior Director of Architecture and Engineering at Trace3
We use Stealthwatch primarily to secure customers' endpoint devices, in order to provide more visibility into their security vectors. We determine where they are getting attacked, if they are getting attacked, how to prevent it, how to fight it, etc. We are really trying to take the fight to the administrator and be a little more proactive, as opposed to being so reactive with security events.

Network Administrator at a mining and metals company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Our primary use case for this solution is to monitor east, west, north, and south traffic so that we can see what's going on in the network internally. You don't get that granularity with anything else. We have an ASA that gets north and south traffic. So we're just really interested in this one by itself. View full review »

The security team uses it more than we do. I don't work on it that much. We have a couple uses for Stealthwatch: gathering security data and sending logs. I believe there is a gatherer that we have that has all of our logs sitting there. That's basically all we use them for. View full review »

Ken Poteate
Security Analysist at Amwins Group
We really just use the product for behavior analytics of our employees. When we have issues or when there is some type of an investigation from a security perspective, we pull up Stealthwatch and start trying to see what that user was doing. If there are any anomalies in their activities we have to take action to correct it. We don't need to monitor every device. The reports show everything that person's doing and what device they're running, et cetera, and we really only need specific things. That was one of our problems in the initial deployment. We tried to overcome that by redeploying. I'm not sure exactly sure that it helped a lot. We're getting more data, but I'm not really sure it gives us a true picture. View full review »
