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.

It's fully scalable. There is no limit. Of course, the license limits per day the number of terabytes. In my opinion, it's very flexible.The most valuable feature is the ability to write rules and triggers for network communication, and then being able to investigate based on that.The most valuable features are its ingestion of logs and raising of alerts based on those logs.Their technical support responds quickly and are knowledgable.The most valuable feature is the correlation. It can report in real-time and monitor the management.It gives the ability to investigate into network traffic in the Net and the organization what we couldn't do before.

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.

They should implement algorithms to digest that data and produce additional, more advanced reporting, alerting and support of internal security teams.The system looks like it is a mix of a bunch of different systems, and nothing looked like it was quite together.I'd like to see improvement in its ease of use. It's basically unusable. It's overly complex.The initial setup was complex because it takes a lot of time to complete the implementation.The implementation needs assistance.We have encountered issues with unresolved crashes.

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.

If you’re relying on log data to detect and prevent cyber threats, you’re in trouble. Attackers increasingly evade detection of log-centric security and network monitoring tools. But logs combined with full packet, endpoint NetFlow data are proven to provide the essential details for early threat detection. Here’s a closer look at our solution.
