Cisco Stealthwatch Pros

Consultant at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Able to drill down into a center's utilization, then create reports based on it.
Ease of deployment, once you get your ducks in a row.
Visibility. The ability to look East and West. To see what is passing through your circuits, where it is coming from, and how big it is.
From a security standpoint, it is just seeing pockets as well. Visibility is very key for us.

The most valuable part is that Stealthwatch is part of a portfolio of security devices from Cisco. Cisco literally can touch every single end point, every single ingress and egress point in the network. Nobody else has that.

The most valuable feature of this solution is data hoarding because it catches threats on a frequent basis that we had no idea of.

The search options on Cisco Stealthwatch are the most valuable. You can get very granular with it, down to the kilobits or the seconds if you want. The product supports any time frame that you need, so that is nice.

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

The most valuable feature of this solution is the way the net flow is being merged together in a single pane. That's been extremely useful for us, because can see what's going on with traffic in one single place.

Reliance on Java. Get away from that.
If they can make this product more web-based, that would be amazing.

It would be better to let people know, up front, that is doesn't give you nice, clear information, as seen in the demos, without Cisco ISE installed.

One thing I would like to see improved is if it could automatically be tied through ISE, instead of you having to manually get notifications and disable it yourself.

I would like the search page available with Cisco Stealthwatch to be more intuitive. The previous release was better than the current one for the UI.

Cisco Stealthwatch needs more integration with device discovery. We have to do a lot of hard work to figure out what things are. Better service integration is required.

I think the interface is a little lacking. The interface seems like it just needs to be modernized. It's been the same interface now, ever since I've seen it probably four years ago.

The GUI could use some improvement. Being able to find features more easily would be a great improvement if it was simplified.

We are continuing down the road of ACI and ISE with Cisco, so we would like to see the continuation of Stealthwatch integrating into ISE for exchange of information, and also, more into the ACI environment too.
