We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features of this solution are the IPS and the integration with ISE."
"The simplicity of use is its most valuable feature. You can very clearly see things."
"The stability of the solution is perfect. I believe it's the most stable solution on the market right now."
"I am really satisfied with the technical support."
"It is a very stable program."
"The solution's integration capabilities are excellent. It's one of the best features."
"It doesn't impact the devices. It is an agent-based solution, and we see no performance knock on cell phones. That was a big thing for us, especially in the mobile world. We don't see battery degradation like you do with other solutions which really drain the battery, as they're constantly doing things. That can shorten the useful life of a device."
"Integration is a key selling factor for Cisco security products. We have a Cisco Enterprise Agreement with access to Cisco Email Security, Cisco Firepower, Cisco Stealthwatch, Cisco Talos, Cisco Threat Grid, Cisco Umbrella, and also third-party solutions. This is key to our security and maximizing operations. Because we do have the Email Security appliance and it is integrated with Threat Response, we have everything tied together. Additionally, we are using the Cisco SecureX platform, as we were a beta test for that new solution. With SecureX, we are able to pull all those applications into one pane for visibility and maintenance. This greatly maximizes our security operations."
"On the management side, we liked the way it displays things."
"The solution is extremely scalable. It's got the hybrid functionality, it's got the system functionality and cloud functionality as well."
"The Application Guard and ByteGuard are useful features."
"Two or three years ago when the WannaCry virus struck, the people that were on Cylance were the ones that weren't affected."
"Has good RAM capacity for the power I need"
"It secures different entry points into the network."
"You can manage all the threats and everything from a centralized dashboard."
"It provides good insight into the programs, applications, or websites that may need attention."
"The vulnerability scanning reduces false positives by quite a bit."
"The most valuable feature is the virtual patching."
"In terms of valuable features, I would say its intrusion prevention. Each and every IP connecting to the server gets scanned so we know everyone who is accessing our server and we can block whichever IP's do not belong to us at the firewall."
"The initial setup was straightforward and we didn't have any problem with it."
"This product offers good protection against many types of malware."
"Automated virtual patching is a good feature."
"It integrates well with the cloud; for example, AWS, and Google Cloud Provider."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the virtual path function, which is the reason we chose to implement it."
"In the next version of this solution, I would like to see the addition of local authentication."
"The initial setup is a bit complex because you need to execute existing antiviruses or security software that you have on your device."
"In the next release, I would for it to have back up abilities. I would like the ability to go back to a point in time to when my PC was uninfected and to the moment of when the infection happened."
"The reporting and analytics areas of the solution need to be improved."
"I would like more seamless integration."
"The technical support is very slow."
"I would recommend that the solution offer more availability in terms of the product portfolio and integration with third-party products."
"Maybe there is room for improvement in some of the automated remediation. We have other tools in place that AMP feeds into that allow for that to happen, so I look at it as one seamless solution. But if you're buying AMP all by itself, I don't know if it can remove malicious software after the fact or if it requires the other tools that we use to do some of that."
"It should provide more details about the events that they have detected."
"I would say one thing that they might need to bring in is protection for mobile devices."
"The OPTICS component could be made more user-friendly with respect to giving people more information."
"I would like to see them fix the alerting system so that the endpoint reporting is a bit more streamlined."
"It should have better support for Windows and Mac."
"The user interface is outdated."
"The product does not do a lot of reporting on what it is taking care of. Enhanced reporting would be a welcome improvement."
"The process of whitelisting a script that you want to be able to run can be a little bit difficult, or awkward."
"The client can show as offline sometimes, and that becomes a bit difficult for troubleshooting. We end up basically redeploying the client. This is something that could be improved in the future."
"When implementing this solution, sometimes we have challenges with SQL migration."
"As for what could be improved, I think it should come with an XDR facility without any extra cost. They're always releasing new features, but we need to pay extra for them."
"The situation with the currency in Turkey makes this solution a little bit on the expensive side, and if it were lowered then it would be more competitive."
"They need to build in a central console because central integration is not very good right now."
"Requires simplification, a fair amount of trouble shooting required."
"The problem with this solution is that if you go on large sites you have to have an external database, which would increase the cost."
"I would like to see an EDR function for the servers, as that would be useful for us."
"The costs of 50 licenses of AMP for three years is around $9,360."
"The price is very good."
"The visibility that we have into the endpoint and the forensics that we're able to collect give us value for the price. This is not an overly expensive solution, considering all the things that are provided. You get great performance and value for the cost."
"Whenever you are doing the licensing process, I would highly advise to look at what other Cisco solutions you have in your organization, then evaluate if an Enterprise Agreement is the best way to go. In our case, it was the best way to go. Since we had so many other Cisco products, we were able to tie those in. We were actually able to get several Cisco security solutions for less than if we had bought three or four Cisco security solutions independently or ad hoc."
"In our case, it is a straightforward annual payment through our Enterprise Agreement."
"Our company was very happy with the price of Cisco AMP. It was about a third of what we were paying for System Center Endpoint Protection."
"There are a couple of different consumption models: Pay up front, or if you have an enterprise agreement, you can do a monthly thing. Check your licensing possibilities and see what's best for your organization."
"The Enterprise Agreement is like an all-you-can-eat buffet of Cisco products. In that vein, it was very affordable."
"I think that the price we are paying is good for what it is."
"The monthly fee is $55 USD per user."
"The product cost is about $5, per user, per month."
"This cost of the license is approximately $5 USD monthly per user."
"It's not so heavily priced; rather, it's average and decent."
"We pay our license on a yearly basis and have just renewed for two years."
"Some of our customers complain about the cost of this solution."
"It's more expensive than other solutions, such as Sophos and Kaspersky, as an endpoint solution."
"The solution is considerably cheaper than other similar solutions."
"There is a license for this solution and there are extra features you can purchase."
