Likelihood to Recommend

Cisco IPS Sensor (Discontinued)

IPS sensors are more suited for companies that do not have visibility into their network with third-party analyzing tools. Scenarios would be to place IPS sensors at the perimeter firewalls mainly. IPS sensors are less appropriate for companies that have third-party analyzing tools that will mitigate vulnerabilities and malicious traffic and activities already.

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection is well suited for environments that have a formal cyber-security department. It s not suited for smaller companies that do not have an official cyber-security department. Since these environments typically have an IT person or staff that wears multiple hats and won't have the time to give the product adequate attention to prove its value.

Proofpoint offers a lot of products, but they are not particularly well integrated. They all look different, and there is no central location to access them all from, which is disappointing. However, I do know they have a big push for upgrading the UI and usability, so this should improve in the coming months I hope.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco IPS Sensor (Discontinued)

HP and Fortinet were in the PoC, too, but we decided to use Cisco IPS because it integrated with the rest of our Cisco equipment better. It was well integrated in the ACI datacenter, too. Performance and actual integration work with Cisco. Most of the workers at our company are familiar with Cisco.

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection gives more visibility on incoming threats that come in via email. Its competitors leave more to the imagination, whereas Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection already provides those needs right out of the box. Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection is also easier to configure when it comes to an initial implementation. Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection also is ranked high in Gartner.
