Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"SecureX takes all the separate pieces of security within your company, adds in intelligence from different sites and services on the internet, and makes them work together.""Using SecureX, a tool provided by Cisco, we can easily integrate it with many of our other Cisco products such as Cisco ISE and many networking devices.""One of the most valuable features is the simplicity of deploying SecureX. It's very easy to do that and then you gain very detailed visibility into everything that's going on in your network and, obviously, at the device level. There's just a wealth of information that you can pull from all of these products that are part of SecureX. You know exactly if you have an issue or not."

"The most valuable feature is the risk-based access control.""Very flexible integration with other tools""So far, the interface is very easy to use.""The customization continues to be excellent.""I like the integration capabilities of Phantom. It has a lot of integrations with other products. Its searching methodologies are also good. It is also easy to understand and easy to create playbooks."

Cons
"The automation and orchestration could be simpler. It could be that all the other parts are that easy to use so that these stick out as a negative, but that's the trickiest part for us. The workflows within the orchestration are just a bit more difficult.""I'm not sure that I would call it a bug, but sometimes the solution is a little slow.""If they could make the Cisco Umbrella piece a little bit more advanced or easier to manage, that would help. We use it for filtering and when you compare it to a normal content filter, it lacks some functionality."

"We want to see improvements made to the APIs such that we can connect to many different systems and data sources.""And most of the challenges that I have faced with the solution can be found in the documentation itself.""It would be ideal if we could automate processes even more.""In the beginning, we couldn't find any specific documents for every function. It wasn't easy to navigate to what we needed.""I haven't used it fully, but based on my usage, I could not find simulation tools and features. It currently lacks simulation features, which are important for me for creating a playbook. It is also very expensive for my region."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"For the value you get, the pricing of the solution is excellent.""You can spend less money for another solution, but if you really want to have a good solution you have to pay. We are happy that we are getting such a good solution for what we are spending.""The pricing is competitive, especially for education institutions. Licensing can be a little bit difficult to navigate, especially with resellers with Cisco, but for us it has been pretty easy."

Overview

SecureX is a cloud-native, built-in platform experience that connects our Cisco Secure portfolio and your infrastructure. It is integrated and open for simplicity, unified in one location for visibility, and maximizes operational efficiency with automated workflows. Radically reduce threat dwell time and human-powered tasks to stay compliant and counter attacks.

Phantom enables teams to work smarter by executing automated actions across their security infrastructure in seconds, versus hours or more if performed manually. Teams can codify workflows into Phantom’s automated playbooks using the visual editor (no coding required) or the integrated Python development environment. By offloading these repetitive tasks, teams can focus their attention on making the most mission-critical decisions.
Orchestration
Phantom is the connective tissue that lets existing security tools work better together. By connecting and coordinating complex workflows across the SOC’s team and tools, Phantom ensures that each part of the SOC’s layered defense is actively participating in a unified defense strategy. Powerful abstraction allows teams to focus on what they need to accomplish, while the platform translates that into tool-specific actions.
Incident Response
Phantom helps security teams investigate and respond to threats faster. Using Phantom’s automated detection, investigation, and response capabilities, teams can execute response actions at machine speed, reduce malware dwell time and lower their overall mean time to resolve (MTTR). And now with Phantom on Splunk Mobile, analysts can use their mobile device to respond to security incidents while on-the-go. Phantom’s event and case management functionality can further streamline security operations. Case-related data and activity are easily accessible from one central repository. It’s easy to chat with other team members about an event or case, and assign events and tasks to the appropriate team member.
