Cisco Secure Endpoint (formerly Cisco AMP)

Specific tool for specific need. If you have a gap in your security infrastructure (protection from malware) you might think to use Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints to make sure your company's devices are safe. But also you can go beyond and enforce your SOC with Cisco AnyConnect where Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints is used as one of modules.

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.

Pros

Cisco Secure Endpoint (formerly Cisco AMP)

  • lightweight connector
  • great integration with other security products
  • highly effective
  • will also alert for vulnerable software being used on your systems

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)

  • Sometimes during whitelisting, other files from security tools get isolated even if it's not user intended.
  • Re-syncing policies also take some time, albeit in a straightforward process.
  • As with all security software, false-positives are still detected.
  • Hoping that once the library is expanded further, the false positives will be fewer.

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.

I give it a very good score due to its simplicity in deployment, actually being able to do everything remotely is very good. Also noteworthy is the low consumption of resources compared to other competitive products.
Cisco support is really very remarkable and the tool has a good integration with other products, a very good work dashboard and very useful reporting.

We have needed very little support, but anytime we need to reach out for assistance they have always been helpful and knowledgeable about the product and helped us resolve any issues or needs we may have

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)

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 product in my opinion.

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)

  • HAMP has allowed the team to focus on value added activities instead of constant cleanup of workstations and servers.
  • AMP is probably not the most cost effective solution, but is very good at protecting your systems.
Scott Shipley | 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.
