What is Cisco Threat Grid?

Cisco Threat Grid crowd-sources malware from a closed community and analyzes all samples using proprietary, highly secure techniques that include static and dynamic (sandboxing) analysis. It correlates the results with hundreds of millions of other analyzed malware artifacts to provide a global view of malware attacks, campaigns, and their distribution. Security teams can quickly correlate a single samples of observed activity and characteristics against millions of other samples to fully understand its behaviors in a historical and global context. This ability helps analysts effectively defend against both targeted attacks and the broader threats from advanced malware. Threat Grid’s detailed reports, including the identification of important behavioral indicators and the assignment of threat scores, let you quickly prioritize and recover from advanced attacks.

Cisco Threat Grid is also known as Threat Grid, ThreatGrid.

Has good integration with firewalls but has limited file extensions

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to use it to identify unknown files. It checks to see if it's a malicious file or a clean file because this is a sandboxing solution which is why it's used on-prem. They don't want to share their own files to the cloud so they use it on their own prem-solutions. It checks even static or dynamic checking to see if it's clean or it's malicious then it makes a verdict.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the integration with firewalls. It's integrated with AMP so the ecosystem with equal solutions from Threat Grid is good with CISCO products."
  • "They come in and have multiple management solutions but it doesn't scan or doesn't have the ability to look at every file extension."

What other advice do I have?

We have a lot of Cisco security products. There are other competitors who do it better. They have a better market share and you can see they have better visibility on the fleet. They started before Cisco did. Products like Firepower and Palo Alto have their own solution. Palo Alto actually started this concept actually. They have their own solutions. IBM has its own solutions. But if you heavily use Cisco security products then it is better to go with Cisco Threat Grid. The biggest lesson that I learned from this solution is that hackers are very smart because even you use Threat Grid, hackers…

Is easy to implement, has good documentation, and is scalable

What is our primary use case?

One of our customers works in the public sector for the Saudi government, and we proposed a subscription model for the Threat Grid solution. I think we had a POC before, and the customer liked the concept of Threat Grid. He already had security infrastructure from Cisco, and this would be a seamless integration between Cisco products and with the Cisco Threat Grid. So the use case would be the smooth integration between Cisco security products and Threat Grid.

Pros and Cons

  • "It is easy to implement and is very scalable. It also comes with very good documentation. Cisco provides good technical support as well."
  • "I was told that the user interface could be more user friendly and easy in comparison to that of competitors. I remember that there is a competitor who has a much easier interface for many users to interact with."

What other advice do I have?

It's a very good product, and I would rate it at nine on a scale from one to ten.
