Cisco Defense Orchestrator is an ideal software to easily manage firewalls at the enterprise level, as well as to implement security policies that allow the corporate infrastructure to remain free of threats that can put at risk all the devices that are handled on a daily basis. For example, it is ideal for preventing network intrusions, since it has the ability to block malware and any suspicious activity. In addition, the fact that it is based on a single console provides the benefit of keeping all devices under view and thus preventing any threat in the simplest way.

Cons
Cisco
  • Their costs can be high, so when it comes to small or medium-sized companies they are limited to their acquisition due to their price. That is why plans tailored to these companies can help them to have this protection option.
  • Its configuration can be somewhat confusing, so knowledge and skills are required.
  • Have more configurable templates so that protection is not limited.
  • Its implementation in the cloud is innovative and ideal for those who trust it, however not all companies trust it, so being able to implement this software locally would also be a great option.

  • Extra Functionality: There are a few features we don't use, either because of the size of our enterprise, or the way we have our firewalls configured. But all the elements to monitor and report on these features are still there, oftentimes meaning it takes longer to get to something we actually do use in the interface.
  • Setup Time: The initial setup was very simple, mostly just adding IPs and a syslog server. But for many of the more advanced features, like the NOC view, it can take a lot of tweaking to get right.
  • Intuitiveness: The reporting, while detailed and better than reading a raw syslog, can be unintuitive at times. Drilling down can sometimes get one stuck in a weird rabbit hole that isn't entirely relevant, and it's hard to get back to somewhere useful without just starting over.

I give this score because I believe that Cisco Defense Orchestrator helps our company to be resilient, this is because this software is also focused on offering security resilience at the enterprise level, that is, through its features such as high visibility, acceleration of threat detection and response, simple management, and end-to-end protection. By having it, it is more feasible to avoid disasters or risks in the devices that are handled daily and of course avoid data loss and, given this, be able to recover quickly if something happens.

Implementation Rating
Cisco
Cisco Defense Orchestrator is a software that is easy to implement, although knowledge is required for it, but if you do not have it, going to its valuable support team is very helpful. If done knowingly, this process can take less than two hours. Having a simple implementation is a valuable feature because it saves time and expense.

We didn't really look at another product - don't think there is one. Cisco Prime I think was an option, but we didn't like the GUI and didn't consider it.

ManageEngine was chosen over the use of AlgoSec as it slotted nicely with other Manage engine services we use for services such as active directory management. Other benefits include how lightweight and easy to install and set up it is. You can install it inside your network and start testing within 20 minutes.
