Cisco Secure Endpoint (formerly Cisco AMP)

Cisco Secure Endpoint is a very good endpoint protection solution. It would be particularly good for someone with the time and ability to really work with it to get the most out of it. This would include the other Cisco product integrations and systems that it works well with.
Jeff Collins | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection

It is well suited in environments that want a simple AV product/solution that, for the most part, can be easily deployed to client endpoints. It is also good for environments that want something that is easy to use by end-users, and also doesn't use a whole lot of system resources.It is less suited for environments that want an AV solution that is more robust feature-wise, or has more configurable options for the end-users. It is also less suited for those organizations that want an AV product to have the highest detection rate in the industry.

Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection

  • Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection offers exceptional threat protections for signature-based "known" threats.
  • The signatures are constantly updated and management of this application is super easy with the use of Microsoft SCCM.
  • The application is very much a "set it and let it" type of deployment. Once you install it, there are very little configuration or changes that need to be made.

Cons

Cisco Secure Endpoint (formerly Cisco AMP)

  • Event search function. The searching is very limited and allows for poor filtering choices.
  • Slowness. The web GUI is far slower than most Cisco products.
  • Sync issues. When attempting to move a device from one group to another or start isolation on a device, there is a sizable delay in communication with the device that can cause operations to fail.

Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection

  • The product could improve in the area of having better mechanisms in place with how the SCEP client is deployed/installed from the server on the management side. We have run into this firsthand with the client not installing on an endpoint, and then having to take the time to investigate why it was not installing.
  • A second improvement that can be made is to keep trying to improve the products detection rate for finding malware/viruses. The case can be made that there are some products out there that do a better job at this and have a higher detection rate.

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.

Like most Cisco products, Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints has a great knowledge base on Cisco's community portal, but unfortunately the Cisco support team cannot always clearly describe the solution for your issue, especially if it is related to the demo period. Nevertheless, Cisco goes to great efforts to improve your current situation with Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints support.

There was a time and a place in which Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection was an excellent choice to provide threat protections. However, now that threats have been evolving, so too does the need for more advanced protections. In its current offering, it just no longer meets the needs of our organization in terms of providing protections against threats.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Secure Endpoint (formerly Cisco AMP)

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 solutions were very good, all the capabilities added together make this product surpassing.

Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection

How SCEP stacks up against some of the other AV solutions/products is that it does a pretty good job overall (not the best in the industry) at detecting/removing malware, which is the main focus for a product like this. It is also easy to use on the end-user side, which can't be said for some other AV products on the market.I was not involved with the selection/purchase of the product in the organization, but I'm almost certain the organization selected this based on the tight integration with Microsoft System Center Manager, which is used in the organization. Also, given the fact that SCEP is tightly integrated and works well in organizations that utilize Microsoft products, it was probably another factor in selecting this. Lastly, the cost of licenses was probably lower (because of System Center already being in place) than other AV products.

Return on Investment

Cisco Secure Endpoint (formerly Cisco AMP)

  • 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.
Nicole McMillian | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection

  • There was little/no cost associated with this software since we are utilizing SCCM and are paying license costs for that anyways.
  • The level or protection is excellent for the cost of the software.
  • There was at least one instance in which Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection identified a crypto-malware, but not before it had already started to encrypt many of our files. So it did detect the threat, but since it was a little delayed we still were infected.
