Based on my two years of experience with this solution, I would comfortably recommend this solution. I would rate FireEye Endpoint Security an eight out of ten.

I would recommend to check how they might pull reports. For example, where the customer modes fall because it's an independent investigation related to an IP. On a scale of one to ten, I would give FireEye Endpoint Security a ten, because it's the only good option.

If you are deploying on Windows or Mac, there will be minimal issues, and you can go for this solution. With Linux, you need to understand a few features. What you expect from Windows and Mac is not available in Linux. If your main technologies are open source, then probably rethink about FireEye Endpoint Security. You can go for FireEye Endpoint Security after they have the same capabilities in Linux. Most of the features are there in their roadmap. We mostly faced issues with Linux support. In the past, we also had issues related to communication between an agent and an endpoint where they didn't communicate, the communication got stopped automatically, or the data communication time didn't sync properly. In the later versions, they improved and resolved these issues. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten. It's gradually growing, and a few features that we require are not there. If these requirements are satisfied, I would rate them nine or ten.

It offers protection from the latest threats.

I like FireEye products, and they have a huge portfolio for this solution. However, this is not a magic bullet where you can install it and your problems will disappear. The problem is with the people, rather than the tool. From my perspective, you can install every tool, but you need to have a security operations team involved in the process of analyzing, sorting, and eliminating threats. When we started our project, we had very few people and we have realized that this had to change. The system without human intervention is useless. We needed to build more complex security operation centers to handle false positives, the triage process, and eliminating threats. The biggest lesson that I have learned from this solution is that people need to be ready and the business needs to be ready to use it. This is not a toy. It is a very mature solution to protect the internals of the organization and it should be treated in this way. This is not the worse product that I have seen. I've seen many, many bad products. At the same time, this is not the best product that I have seen. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

First, implement it. Then, see what is going on in your company. You will see that there are many risks which you have never seen. The product is not bad, but there may be somethings that need to be modified. The solution is very precise for detecting risks, but the operational quality has some issues.
