Cisco Stealthwatch Stability

It has been pretty stable. The deployment is the SNC which is located in our headquarters. Then, you have collectors and sensors which are sitting out there in our various eye pop points: East and West points out the door. The sensor sits on the standpoint, therefore it sees everything. The collector, you point to it, and it has been pretty stable in that regard. Previously, the one thing which drove us crazy about the product was it seemed to be pretty locked on certain versions of Java. Now, it appears to have been improved. Thus, we are very happy with that. In terms of improvement overall, we would like to see less reliance on Java and possibly a self-contained REST API package, either client or web-based would be nice rather than locally in Java. This would be a nice feature set. Integration would be nice too. We are a pretty big Cisco shop. From ICE to our WCs. We are growing while we are looking at other products and solutions out there. Those solutions being FireEye or Palo Alto. Is there an integration where maybe East-West Lancope can see this type of traffic, then send updates and work lists with other products to say, "Block this as this is bad," other than the blocking point being Stealthwatch? I understand Cisco has AMP Threat Grid. This is their ecosystem, and it is supposed to coordinate and work together in making the setup easy. Self-pushes to the cloud, as long as your Cisco-based products report to the same cloud point, then you are all sharing data that way. That is still very Cisco-centric. It would be nice to see a little bit more integration with Palo Alto, FireEye, and VScanner, therefore not all being Cisco-based. View full review »

This solution is pretty stable for the most part. I don't like Java, so that's the thing that needs to go, but for the most part, it is a great solution. View full review »

It's stable now. I wouldn't say it was stable when we first had the solution, but now it's stable. In the beginning, we had the standard first-time turn-up stuff, like issues with the code, etc. We tried to give them a better solution to work with our company well. The way we have things set up is complicated. View full review »

We used to have an older version of the firmware and we were always having problems with it. Now, they have really good firmware. They came up with some new revision to the code, and so it's a lot more stable. View full review »
