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

Pros
If we are receiving spam emails, or other types of malicious email coming from a particular email ID, then we are able to block them using this solution.The product has helped improve our organization by being easy to use and integrate. This saves time, trouble and money.The most valuable network security feature is the network sandbox solution. This sandbox feature works on traffic flow.Initially, we didn't have much visibility around what is occurring at our applications lower level. For instance, if we are exposed to any malicious attacks or SQL injections. But now we've integrated FireEye with Splunk, so now we get lots of triggers based on policy content associated with FireEye. The solution has allowed for growth and improvement in our information security and security operations teams.The most valuable feature is the view into the application.Application categorization is the most valuable feature for us. Application filtering is very interesting because other products don't give you full application filtering capabilities.It allows us to be more hands off in checking on emails and networking traffic. We can set up a bunch of different alerts and have it alert us.The scalability has not been a problem. We have deployed the product in very high bandwidth networks. We have never had a problem with the FireEye product causing latency issues within our networks.

One of the valuable features is its ability to detect new threats.You have access to a report as to what behaviors the example file entered in the registry.

Cons
It would be a good idea if we could get an option to block based upon the content of an email, or the content of a file attachment.As far as future inclusions, it would be useful to display more threat intelligence, such as the actual area of the threat and the origin of the web crawling (Tor and Dark Web).They could also increase or improve the scalability because to my knowledge the biggest bandwidth can only support up to 10 gigs of input.Improvements could be achieved through greater integration capabilities with different firewall solutions. Integrating with the dashboard itself for different firewalls so users can also pull tags into their firewall dashboard.A better depth of view, being able to see deeper into the management process, is what I'd like to see.Based on what we deployed, they should emphasize the application filtering and the web center. We need to look deeper into the SSM inspection. If we get the full solution with that module, we don't need to get the SSM database from another supplier.I would love to see better reporting. Because you can't export some of the reports in proper formats, it is hard to extract the data from reports.The initial setup was complex because of the nature of our environment. When it comes to the type of applications and functions which we were looking at in terms of identifying malicious threats, there would be some level of complexity, if we were doing it right.

The product is good but it could be speedier. In addition, it's quite complex.For additional features, maybe a form of execution pain files in a non-virtual environment because it has threats that identify when it is being run in a virtual machine.

Pricing and Cost Advice
When I compare this solution to its competitors in the market, I find that it is a little expensive.FireEye is comparable to other products, such as HX, but seems expensive. It may cause us to look at other products in the market.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.We're partners with Cisco so we get a reasonable price. It's cheaper than Palo Alto in terms of licensing.Because of what the FireEye product does, it has significantly decreased our mean time in being able to identify and detect malicious threats. The company that I work with is a very mature organization, and we have seen the meantime to analysis decrease by at least tenfold.There are some additional services that I understand the vendor provides, but our approach was to package all of the features that we were looking to use into the product.The pricing is a little high.Pricing and licensing are reasonable compared to competitors.

There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.
