We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The product has helped improve our organization by being easy to use and integrate. This saves time, trouble and money."
"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 most valuable feature is MVX, which tests all of the files that have been received in an email."
"The server appliance is good."
"The most valuable feature is the network security module."
"It is stable and quite protective. It has a lot of features to scan a lot of malicious things and vulnerabilities."
"It stops in excess of twenty-five malware events per month, all of which could be critical to the business."
"The most valuable features are the administration console and its detection and response module."
"Its greatest strength is the DXL client which can rapidly disseminate attack information to all clients via the McAfee Agent instead of going through the ePO server."
"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)."
"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."
"It would be very helpful if there were better integration with other solutions from other vendors, such as Fortinet and Palo Alto."
"Technical packaging could be improved."
"It is very expensive, the price could be better."
"I heard that FireEye recently was hacked, and a lot of things were revealed. We would like FireEye to be more secure as an organization. FireEye has to be more protective because it is one of the most critical devices that we are using in our environment. They have a concept called SSL decryption, but that is only the packet address. We would like FireEye to also do a lot of decryption inside the packet. Currently, FireEye only does encryption and decryption of the header, but we would like them to do encryption and decryption of the entire packet."
"This solution needs to be made "cloud ready"."
"I would like to see future versions of the solution incorporate artificial intelligence technology."
"Make the ATD system a part of the whole product and take the whole thing onto the cloud. While it is there already, it is not to the same level as the on-premise version."
"FireEye is comparable to other products, such as HX, but seems expensive. It may cause us to look at other products in the market."
"When I compare this solution to its competitors in the market, I find that it is a little expensive."
"The user fee is not as high but the maintenance fee is expensive."
"It's an expensive solution."
"Our licensing fees for this solution are approximately one million dollars per year."
