Malware detection can be better. It doesn't have support and detection for the recent malware, but it has a compensatory control where it can do the behavior-based assessment and alert you when there is something malicious or unexpected. For example, when a certain user is executing the privilege command, which is not normal. These dynamic detections are good, and they compensate for malware detection. It has very good integrations. However, its integration with Palo Alto was not good, and they seem to be working on it at the backend. It is not very resource-hungry, but it can be even better in terms of resource utilization. It could be improved in terms of efficiency, memory sizing, and disk consumption by agents. They have something called Managed Detection and Response. They get intel from their customers, and that intel is shared with the rest of FireEye's customers. I want to subscribe to their intel, but that is not available to us.

In my personal and professional view, I think the reports need more development. They need more details on the reports and more details taking the executive view into consideration. These reports contain the information that is gathered at the intake solutions. They are more geared for the technician and I think they need more executive information because it is important to talk to the main executives, and for them to see what is happening related to some of those suspicious activities.

The Linux support is very poor. I use base detection. Currently, they are providing malware protection and logon track features in Windows and Mac. These features aren't available in Linux. It will be helpful to extend these capabilities to Linux. We would also like assets grouping and device lock protection features, which are included in their roadmap.

Something that needs to improve is the interface. I would also like to see simple processing and reporting online.

They could use a Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) and application control module. If you have another endpoint product running on the same machine, you have to fine tune functions from FireEye to avoid performance and user experience issues.

We had a very large problem that has, unfortunately, not been solved. Simply put, when we start the computer the program will not start. We have encouraged FireEye to solve this problem because we have to manually start this product each and every time, and it affects almost thirty percent of our environment. From a security perspective, this is not stable. After using various components in this solution, I get the feeling that not every part of the whole FireEye suite works perfectly with the other parts. Sometimes you have this functionality where the product has the ability to take data from one part of the solution and use it in different parts. Sometimes, however, you don't have this luxury. The solution needs more suitable dashboards that handle things from different perspectives. For example, a CEO and a technician from operations are completely different. The integration and display of the dashboards have to be done better.

I hope the solution can be used in cloud systems going forward.

* AV management based on manual scan * Manual scan feature is not easily done * A long way of setting hostname set, and * Scheduling over policy which is time taking and I don't feel comfortable.
