Likelihood to Recommend

Cisco IOS Security

When it comes to security on the edge of your network (downstream) Cisco's IOS security features provide pretty much everything you need when it comes to securing your network, network devices, and access. I would absolutely recommend Cisco switches due to many reasons, but a big reason is security.

FireEye Security Suite

FireEye is the obvious solution if a company is having trouble with threats getting in via mail attachments. We use Office 365 and initially subscribed to their attachment scanning product. Users immediately started complaining it would take a minimum of 3 minutes and sometimes as long as 12 hours to receive their attachments. This rate of time was unacceptable. So we did a POC with FireEye and immediately saw that attachments were processed on average in 30 seconds but at the most, around 1.5 minutes. We were convinced after that.

Cons

Cisco IOS Security

  • Cisco could provide an initial set up script for those are not used to the CLI (Command Line Interface). With that initial script, people could easily deploy the security features instead of having to learn how to use the commands.
  • The web interface that Cisco provides with the routers, although it’s useful to set up the security features, it could also have some sort of tutorials to help people understand the main concepts of iOS security.
  • You have to license iOS security separately from the main OS. For that reason, sometimes it tends to be a little expensive if you have a small business.

FireEye Security Suite

  • Hard to configure
  • Needs more tools to analyze incidents
  • All modules need to be connected to each other

Alternatives Considered

Cisco IOS Security

I also like HP Procurve. It is my choice when the customer cannot afford Cisco. Cisco is better all round but HP is the only other [product] I will use if I have a choice.

FireEye Security Suite

Advanced Threat Protection, or ATP in Office 365 was awful. Some attachments wouldn't be delivered at all while others took minutes and sometimes hours to be delivered after being scanned. It was causing us to lose business. FireEye processes attachments in less than 60 seconds in most cases. We now have buy in from employees to scan attachments since it's hardly noticeable to them

Return on Investment

Cisco IOS Security

  • Cisco iOS security helped our business deploy a relatively safe solution for a small amount of money.
  • If you don’t have enough budget to invest in a robust and expensive firewall solution, you can safely use Cisco iOS security to protect your branch or remote office without compromise your network.
  • Because Cisco iOS security uses a simple command-line based interface, you can deploy standardized scripts and keep the operational costs low.

FireEye Security Suite

  • Stronger security posture
  • Faster security event response times
  • Global deployment can be difficult as hardware may not be be available in remote locations.
