Considered Both Products
Cisco Secure Endpoint
Chose Cisco Secure Endpoint
Cisco Secure Endpoint works in tandem with Cisco Umbrella, which allows to even further improve the overall security of the systems.
Chose Cisco Secure Endpoint
Cisco Secure Endpoint is an advanced EDR solution that is highly effective and scalable. Our experience previously with MalwareBytes and Microsoft Defender was not horrible, but these products were not as effective and did not integrate well with our other security products to …
Chose Cisco Secure Endpoint
Being all products of a similar nature, Cisco Advance Malware Protection stands out for its simplicity, low resource consumption, reporting, work dashboards and integration with the rest of the already installed suit.
Those are the most notable aspects, although the rest of the …
Chose Cisco Secure Endpoint
AMP is far superior to Symantec in my opinion. It is much more robust and customizable. It is much easier to manage systems and to spot trouble areas. Deploying and upgrading clients is much simpler. It is a much more lightweight client on the desktop. Overall a much better …
Chose Cisco Secure Endpoint
When looking for a Malware Protection for Endpoints, AMP was our first and only choice. We like the fact that Cisco has a whole line of security software that can work together and so our goal has been to use the Cisco Suite that includes Umbrella, Firepower, AMP. We are very …
Chose Cisco Secure Endpoint
Although is kinda expensive AMP has been our only choice because of the integration with other products like Umbrella.
Chose Cisco Secure Endpoint
The only comparable product I have evaluated is from enSilo, however the whitelisting capability is more difficult to manage in a dynamic environment.
Cisco Umbrella
Chose Cisco Umbrella
We looked at the other option of full web content filtering and decided this was a better approach for us. We really did not evaluate other options like Zscaler or Sophos.
Chose Cisco Umbrella
These products are used in conjunction with Umbrella to help cover the gaps in the product. Websense was the closest product we had in the past, however the cost and operating of the product became more and more difficult and costly.
Chose Cisco Umbrella
None of the other products tested offered the simplicity and ease of use of Umbrella and the guarantee that your endpoints will be secured regardless of network.
Chose Cisco Umbrella
We did not evaluate any other products as Cisco Umbrella was perfect and already part of the Cisco eco system, so things like native API integration made it a easy decision.
Chose Cisco Umbrella
The simplicity of administration, the possibility of having a roaming user scheme with differential security policies for each case, and its integration with other products were key when deciding and undoubtedly generated a very positive impact both in the tasks of the IT team …
Chose Cisco Umbrella
More options and features than Eset and other tools that we have previously used. Also, Cisco Umbrella is very easy to install.

I think you need it for all your endpoint devices, whether you are running an organization or for home use, it's just that level of security that will help out if you don't have the firewalls, all the fancy XDR equipment, all that kind of stuff, just having this on your endpoint will save your life. So even if there's a compromise in your network, it has the capability to isolate. Restrict so that you can't lose any more data or nothing else gets in

So the well-suited product, it's actually in two areas. One I already touched base on earlier which is the ability to have a federal model where we have the flexibility to set high-level policies from a group perspective while giving the independence of the business unit to operate and model the system to meet their needs. The second one, which is very powerful, especially in the last few years, is the remote workers. I'm able to protect and extend that edge of my security to their endpoint regardless if they are a Cisco Live or if they are at a bar or on a train basically anywhere. So as a chemical company, we have a lot of OT or ICS industrial control systems, which are highly regulated and highly scrutinized and usually require a physical presence while Cisco umbrella is mostly a cloud native type of product. So it doesn't fit well in that environment, which is detached from the internet doing well.

Pros
Cisco
  • Threat identification: it finds things we wouldn't have even been looking for.
  • Integration with Secure Malware Analytics for automatic submission of suspicious files.
  • In-depth and complex configuration options for finely tuned policies for different users and endpoints.
  • Part of the Cisco Secure Client product for easier distribution and reduction of running agents on end-user devices
  • Integrates with Secure-X for single-pane of glass view of dashboards.

  • Effective prevention of ransomware and malware by blocking CNC traffic. rendering the malware useless.
  • Good reports, which are readable by non technical users
  • Using Talos for its threat database means that it rarely misses anything
  • Very good knowledgebase available which means that it is easy to learn how to use and implement the product

Cons
Cisco
  • The update mechanism of the client is not obvious and takes some finesse to learn
  • The clients auto update signatures, but not agents which I have seen lead to mixed version levels as it is harder to keep up with
  • It is generally a challenge to manage the licenses and if you let the license lapse, it is a very bad thing in my opinion.

  • Umbrella Virtual Appliances have been buggy in resolving local domain hosts.
  • Integration between other Cisco and Meraki products is complicated.
  • Reporting is not always accurate; for example, if you configure a Meraki access point to use an Umbrella Virtual Appliance, you lose device reporting. All reporting shows up under the AP's IP.

First off I never give anything a "10" unless it's perfect. LOL - I grade on the curve. I think OpenDNS/Umbrella is a very good product. I think that fact that Cisco absorbed them is one of the proofs of that. I have used the product back when it was free for companies our size. I have not always appreciated the cost - but in the post pandemic cyber chaos, I believe the cost benefit ratio is still very high. I have honestly not looked at other products because Umbrella continues to work to my satisfaction. I consider Umbrella to be one of the key layers in my cyber security strategy.

Usability
Cisco
AMP is very difficult to use compared to other products we've seen. It's hard to understand why there are so many different logins for the various products that supposedly integrate with AMP. We had weekly phone calls for months to implement the product yet none of the IT department really enjoys using this product or feels comfortable with the accuracy of detections. The number of false positives is high.

Cisco Umbrella's availability was great, they got back to me in less than an hour to get my problem solved.
We needed to get our Meraki AP's hooked up to Cisco Umbrella to monitor that specific traffic and they got back to me promptly, they guided me and explained every question I had.

In terms of technical support for Cisco Secure Endpoint, the support has been pretty good. All the cases I submitted were solved in a reasonable time frame, and it was a good experience. However, I find that not as many vendors have the expertise I would expect.

We have not had a chance to use Cisco support frequently, but when we needed to troubleshoot some issues that we were having with the agent installation, the support was very responsive and the solution that they offered worked. The only reason I give it one less point is that the turnaround time for non-critical issues is very long.

At the time we were forced to move from Cloud Web Security to Cisco Umbrella, Cisco Umbrella was far from being a direct replacement. It was frustrating and difficult to migrate due to the lack of functionality. This has since been addressed, however we now have legacy rulesets that were built as bandaids that cannot be removed. Hopefully the migration to Secure Access will address this.

Cisco Secure Endpoint is an advanced EDR solution that is highly effective and scalable. Our experience previously with MalwareBytes and Microsoft Defender was not horrible, but these products were not as effective and did not integrate well with our other security products to allow us to monitor and react quickly to address threats that were within our network. Key to any security effort is mitigation and the ability to quickly identify and respond so any damage can be avoided or limited.

Auto SIG Tunnels is a feature that helps in provisioning tunnels automatically using Cisco Umbrella APIs and so this is one win for choosing Cisco Umbrella over others. With Cisco SD-WAN viptela, the Cisco Umbrella stacks up well because its the same vendor so less complexities and interoperability issues.

Return on Investment
Cisco
  • AMP has been able to catch some serious infections and stop them from doing huge damage in our environment.
  • The overall cost of AMP vs the cost of not having this protection and getting hit with malware, or other nefarious damage to your environment is well worth the money.

  • Cisco Umbrella has been an excellent investment for us. The extra protection it provides in a very simple way has been well worth the costs.
  • Cisco Umbrella is very easy to setup and manage and can do most of the things we need with little daily interaction so we are free to work on other systems that need more attention.
  • Utilizing the Cisco Umbrella reporting features, we can determine what systems might need additional attention. If we see systems attempting certain types of access, we quickly know there is likely something on the device that probably needs removed.
  • Specific Cisco Umbrella reports can help us determine if we need to do user education and develop cyber habits.
