Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Its most valuable features are its scalability and advanced threat protection for customers.""I am told that we get over 100 million emails a month. This filters them down and allows only somewhere about three million emails, which is a great help.""For the initial first level of support, we provide it from our side. If there's escalation required, we use Cisco tech for the AMP. And again, they are perfect. I mean, one of the best, compared to any other vendors.""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."

"It is very valuable in finding out unknown malware.""The most valuable feature of this solution is its simplicity.""The most valuable network security feature is the network sandbox solution. This sandbox feature works on traffic flow.""The investigation and forensic analysis have been most helpful.""The most valuable feature is the integration between environments.""The exploit guard and malware protection features are very useful. The logon tracker feature is also very useful. They have also given new modules such as logout backup, process backup. We ordered these modules from the FireEye market place, and we have installed these modules. We are currently exploring these features."

"The patch management is very easy, as it can be done automatically or added to a schedule.""Provides good vulnerability assessment.""It shows us the risky sign-ins, and if a user's password has been compromised.""What I like most is the protection against phishing emails and anti-spam."

Cons
"We would like to have an API integration with a SIEM solution, because as far as I know, it currently hasn't yet been released.""I would like them to add whatever makes filtering more advanced in scanning and blocking for malware in emails.""The solution needs more in-depth analytics.""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."

"I hope the solution can be used in cloud systems going forward.""The integration and display of the dashboards have to be done better.""They could also increase or improve the scalability because to my knowledge the biggest bandwidth can only support up to 10 gigs of input.""If you have another endpoint product running on the same machine, you have to fine tune functions from FireEye to avoid performance and user experience issues.""I would like to see simple processing and reporting online.""The Linux support is very poor. I use base detection. Currently, they are providing malware protection and logon track features in Windows and Mac. These features aren't available in Linux. It will be helpful to extend these capabilities to Linux. We would also like assets grouping and device lock protection features, which are included in their roadmap."

More FireEye Endpoint Security Cons »

"I would like to see better integration with their other security products to give better visibility from a higher level.""The GUI is very complex and could be more user friendly.""I am not sure if I will be using this product in the future because of the price.""If they integrate with the EDR then it will benefit this solution.""The scanning is slow when it is working with incoming emails."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"The current pricing is much better than before because they now offer product-related promotions along with some changes in product licensing. The new pricing model is better than before.""It is a yearly subscription-based product, which includes the license and hardware. There is also a subscription for technical support up to five years."

"If you don't purchase the advanced threat protection then there is no additional charge.""Microsoft Defender ATP is expensive.""When compared with other vendors, the pricing is very high.""We sell this product as part of Office 365 and it is not expensive."
