What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of the FireEye solution is the deep analysis for malicious software.

How has it helped my organization?

It is very difficult for any organization to identify malicious software and code. With the FireEye product through its deep analysis, it is possible for malicious… more »

What needs improvement?

Many organizations industry-wide are moving more workloads to cloud providers, whether it is AWS, Azure, or Google. We don't yet see the same type of malware analysis in… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

It wasn't a case where we switched from another solution because we had been a long time customer. It wasn't a case of switching, as the company that I work for is a very… more »

What other advice do I have?

It brings a tremendous amount of value to your network environment. In terms of what we asked them to do, which is to help us to identify malicious code and threats, their… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

FireEye was actually the only product that was doing what they were doing. We did have other vendors on our shortlist.

What is most valuable?

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.

How has it helped my organization?

We use it as a second level of defense for many clients in the telecom field. We use Symantec Blue Coat as a proxy for the web center. We even have a little bit of SSM because we are floating some… more »

What needs improvement?

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… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We're partners with Cisco so we get a reasonable price. It's cheaper than Palo Alto in terms of licensing. We can get cheaper features from Palo Alto though.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are also resellers for Palo Alto.

What other advice do I have?

The main advice for such product is if you don't have any visibility regarding your application you need to deploy the FireEye solution. Otherwise, you don't have any visibility for the SSM, for the… more »

What is most valuable?

The feature that I have found most valuable is the ability to block someone.

How has it helped my organization?

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.

What needs improvement?

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. I would also like to be able to block an email based on the content of the subject line. Similarly, if I… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

When I compare this solution to its competitors in the market, I find that it is a little expensive. Even the hardware costs are expensive.

What other advice do I have?

This solution generally performs well. I have seen some emails it allowed, which should have been categorized as malicious, but apart from those, I haven't seen any other problems. I would definitely recommend this product because I have… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the ability to detect intrusions and the user-friendly dashboard. The integration with our CM worked well. It gives visibility into what's going on at the user level.

How has it helped my organization?

The product has helped improve our organization by being easy to use and integrate. This saves time, trouble and money.

What needs improvement?

There are three things that can be improved: * Protection testing. When it comes to the protections, it requires a lot of testing to implement. * Local support. They need to beef up the capabilities of local support. * Pricing. The price is… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

FireEye is comparable to other products, such as HX, but seems expensive. It may cause us to look at other products in the market.

What other advice do I have?

Having a product deployed that fills our needs keeps us from having to consider major changes in looking to other products on the market to resolve other issues. I would rate it a seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is MVX, which tests all of the files that have been received in an email. It uses virtual machines to test the behavior of the files and determine whether they are malicious in nature. If there is any abnormal activity then the file will be blocked. The corresponding hash value will then be recorded, submitted to the cloud, and added to the blacklist.

What needs improvement?

It would be very helpful if there were better integration with other solutions from other vendors, such as Fortinet and Palo Alto. They should be sharing their threat database and information. For example, if something is discovered by FortiSandbox or the Palo Alto Sandbox, it should be announced to all of the vendors so that they can take action and block these files. FireEye can be improved in… more »

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to fine-tune based on the use cases. Test the solution, monitor the alerts, and be proactive about anything that shows up. If there is any abnormal activity then be sure to take action quickly, and also, ensure that there is policy in place for other departments to act accordingly when malicious traffic is detected. I would rate this… more »

What is most valuable?

The zero-day vulnerabilities feature is the most valuable feature.

How has it helped my organization?

McAfee didn't even know that there was a vulnerability out there, and this solution found it before McAfee, and then we notified them, and they came up with a patch to remediate that exploit.

What needs improvement?

Cybersecurity posture has room for improvement.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing and licensing are reasonable compared to competitors.

What other advice do I have?

There may be other tools that do this, but FireEye is part of the defense in depth. What other products miss, FireEye tends to pick up. I would rate it an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is FireEye NX.

How has it helped my organization?

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. Now, we've integrated FireEye with Splunk, so we get lots of triggers based on policy content associated with FireEye. The… more »

What needs improvement?

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.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of one to 10, with one being the worst and 10 being the best, I would you rate this product an 8. From a security perspective, it's pretty decent. It's just that I have seen it miss some semi loads or triggers when it's integrated with other products. On the flexibility scale, I think… more »

What is most valuable?

The core functionality: It blocks what we need it to block.

How has it helped my organization?

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. It gives us a better view of our network and our email environment.

What needs improvement?

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. It could use more user-friendly navigation around the tool.

What other advice do I have?

It is a good bare bones solution for what they are looking for. However, if they wanted a more a robust solution, then they would probably have to look somewhere else or get additional FireEye products. It was probably one of the earlier things that we did within the maturity of our security… more »
