"Cisco Stealthwatch has reduced the amount of time to detect an immediate threat.""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 has increased our threat detection rate. Cisco Stealthwatch has not reduced our incident response times. It has not reduced the amount of time it takes us to detect immediate threats. It has reduced false positives.""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 is its alerts and dashboard.""It is a good application, providing for real-time monitoring of the organization of data. It can basically identify points of peak traffic where possible issues are being caused.""The feature most valuable for us is to gain visibility of what is actually floating through, so we can stop it based on whether it's good or bad traffic.""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."

Cons
"Technical support is something that needs improvement.""I think that the pricing for the Check Point products should be reconsidered, as we found it to be quite expensive to purchase and to maintain."

"There's a lot of traffic on our network that we don't see sometimes.""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.""The ability to be natively integrated into Port Aggregator would be beneficial because it would reduce just one more component that's needed in order to have that type of view.""I would like Cisco to make it easier for the administrators to use it.""It's too complicated to install, when starting out.""At my company, we might not be using it enough with other applications that we have that can integrate with it.""The initial setup was complex.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Choosing the correct set of licenses is essential because, without the additional software blade licenses, the Check Point gateways are just a stateful firewall."

More Check Point Infinity Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licensing costs are outrageous.""Licensing is on a yearly basis.""The yearly licensing cost is about $50,000.""On a yearly basis, licensing is somewhere around $30,000.""We pay for support costs on a yearly basis.""Our fees are approximately $3,000 USD.""The pricing for this solution is good."
