If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Cisco AMP for Endpoints, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
AMP for endpoints is a great advanced cloud based solution. My opinion is to keep up with an aditional antivirus (add exclusions on both AV & AMP for scanning).
I normally work with Cisco systems, as well as most of the routing and switching companies out there, like Juniper, among others. We're partners with Cisco. I handle consultation with all Cisco products, which includes all of the safe architecture, security logging, and switching. I'm basically working with the system architecture within Compass. I am a unified, tech grade umbrella for the entire product portfolio. I'd advise, if users are running a Cisco environment, to definitely adopt AMP as an endpoint-based solution, which makes it a lot easier for them to manage your devices. I'd also advise that AMP works very well if someone is running a non-Cisco set up (and they're looking at an endpoint solution that works independently). However, there's a little bit of complexity in terms of getting the actual business use case, because there's less documentation surrounding that kind of setup. In terms of rating the solution overall, I'd rate it an eight out of ten. It has covered most of the feature sets we need. The reason I'm not giving it a full ten out of ten is because there is still room to improve the scope of integration. It doesn't support many of the IoT endpoints as well as the other components on the network, which are not yet compatible but under development. Once that happens, I'd probably give it a proper ten out of ten.
I will recommend this solution to others. I would, however, like to see better features and implementation to cover some points. It would be nice if they could add more protocols to support encrypted files, and be able to inspect an encrypted file, or at least be able to support that. Better and faster technical support is also necessary. On a scale from one to 10, I rate this solution a seven.
On a scale from one to ten, I will rate this solution an eight. I do recommend it to others.
We use the hybrid deployment model. I would advise other potential users that if they are looking for a long term security solution, this particular solution is going to add value to their cybersecurity strategy. Cisco AMP is one of the solutions that adds value to your cybersecurity roadmap. It should not be considered as a solution, but rather as a strategy. I would rate the solution nine out of ten.
Just purchase the license, download it, install it to an active device, the main controller, and send it to everyone. My advice is that you need to delete your existing endpoint security solution because AMP actually contains everything that you need. Those two softwares can attack each other which can be a problem. I would rate it a nine out of ten.
This is a good product but there are always going to be some issues. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
I would say that if you have a vision or plan for security, and want to have an integrated solution, AMP can be a very integral part of this digitization roadmap. AMP should be considered if you have digitization or a digitalization plan, which most if not all organizations are going for. So I think AMP is good for that, from the security standpoint. I would give this solution an 8 out of 10. It has all the solutions.
We have some mature security services, like anti-malware. We are looking to broaden our service portfolio and are on the first steps to climb further. You should always assess your customers' needs. Once you get that information, you just look for respective vendors.
Seriously consider it. It blocks a lot of emails. Look at the market, do your evaluation, and pick the right solution for you. We are fairly mature in our security program maturity, but there is always room for improvement.
