Pros
The most valuable feature is anomaly detection, where it finds things that are not allowed internally.Most of the engineers I've worked with have been really good. Very knowledgeable and easy to work with.Being able to graph and show data to management has improved our organization. We can show the data to the higher-ups. It shows them that it's picking up on these anomalies and doing its job.It's a dependable product that is able to pinpoint where we have vulnerabilities if they occur.Using the Cognitive Analytics feature, we have complete visibility that we didn’t have before.The most valuable feature about this solution is that it gives me insight of my network.It has improved our internal knowledge of what's going on with the network, and that's helpful.The most valuable features of this solution are the logging, keeping threats under control, and keeping our data and environment secure.

Cons
The usability of this solution needs to be improved.We've run into some issues with the configuration.They should include Citrix VDIs in the next release.The GUI could use some improvement. Being able to find features more easily would be a great improvement if it was simplified.The initial setup is complex, as there is a lot to configure.It hasn't really improved our direct detection rate but it has definitely reduced our incident response time as we wouldn't have been able to detect threats or immediate risks without this solution.I would like to see more and cleaner reporting. For example, if I pull up Steven and I want to look and maybe compare him to what you've done in the past week, and compare that to the past six months, the point would be to see what the difference in activity looks like over this time. I don't see that capability in reporting to date. You see that trend but you don't really see a straightforward comparison. That right there is key to what we want to see about the normal activity.It is time-consuming to set it up and understand how the tool works.

I think only the technical documentation and administration of box could be a little bit improved.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Our fees are approximately $3,000 USD.Licensing is on a yearly basis.We pay for support costs on a yearly basis.On a yearly basis, licensing is somewhere around $30,000.The yearly licensing cost is about $50,000.The pricing for this solution is good.The licensing costs are outrageous.Today, we are part of the big Cisco ELA, and it is a la carte. We can get orders for whatever we want. At the end of the day, we have to pay for it in one big expense, but that is fine. We are okay with that.

Overview

Cisco Stealthwatch uses NetFlow to provide visibility across the network, data center, branch offices, and cloud. Its advanced security analytics uncover stealthy attacks on the extended network. Stealthwatch helps you use your existing network as a security sensor and enforcer to dramatically improve your threat defense.

DNS is one of the fastest growing attack vectors because it’s essential for network connectivity, and current security solutions are not designed to protect it. Distributed denial of service (DDoS) and other external and internal DNS-based threats can flood your DNS server with malicious requests, bringing down your network. These attacks can redirect users to harmful Internet destinations, exfiltrate data, and expose your customers and business to additional risks. Security technologies such as NextGen firewalls, IPS, and generic DDoS solutions do not understand DNS and are unable to prevent specific attacks such as DNS cache poisoning, DNS hijacking, reflection attacks, amplification attacks, and many others.

With Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection, you can comprehensively defend your DNS server from the widest range of DNS-based attacks, while maintaining service availability and business continuity.
