Find out what your peers are saying about FireEye Network Security vs. Fortinet FortiSandbox and other solutions. Updated: November 2019.
382,399 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
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.
Before FireEye, most of the times that an incident would happen nobody would be able to find out where or why the incident occurred and that the system is compromised. FireEye is a better product because if the incident already happened I know that the breach is there and that the system is compromised so we can take appropriate action to prevent anything from happening.
The initial setup is straightforward.
The analysis engine is a very valuable feature.
What I find most valuable, is that it is easy to use.
The technical support is very good.
he solution's GUI is good.
The solution is very good because it catches a lot of threats in emails.
The most valuable feature is the protection and the way it works, the technology is what I like the most.
The most valuable feature was the EDR, endpoint detection and response.
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).
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.
It doesn't connect with the cloud, advanced machine learning is not there. A known threat can be coming into the network and we would want the cloud to look up the problem. I would also like to see them develop more file replication and machine learning.
The integration is limited. The solution needs to offer better integration with multiple vendors.
Product could include a user interface and be made simpler for customers to configure.
Something that needs to improve, is the end-point protection.
Most people are confused about how to use the right integration of the right Fortinet product.
At least once a week we have a false alarm. This needs to be adjusted so that we get fewer of these occurrences.
The response time from technical support should be improved.
The licensing can be very confusing. It needs to be simplified.
In the next release, I would like to see machine learning and anti-exploitation included.
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.
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.
The solution is not expensive at all.
There are additional costs, which isn't included in the licensing fee.
There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.

FireEye Network Security is an advanced threat protection and breach detection platform that provides industry leading threat visibility and protection against the world’s most sophisticated and damaging attacks. By leveraging FireEye’s unique technologies and threat intelligence, FireEye Network Security detects what other security solutions miss, providing holistic security from the perimeter to the network core.
Today’s threats are increasingly sophisticated and often bypass traditional malware security by masking their malicious activity. A sandbox augments your security architecture by validating threats in a separate, secure environment. FortiSandbox offers a powerful combination of advanced detection, automated mitigation, actionable insight, and flexible deployment to stop targeted attacks and subsequent data loss. It's also a key component of our Advanced Threat Protection solution.
