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.

Mimecast Secure Email Gateway

Mimecast has been great at filtering our email for spam, phishing attempts, and potentially dangerous email attachments. We have been very happy with the reliability of the Mimecast services - I don't remember it being down in 2 years of using the service. My one complaint is that the admin console is not very easy to navigate, which makes some of the services difficult to implement. That being said, their support team has been great about walking us through these issues.

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.

Mimecast Secure Email Gateway

  • The Admin Management console is absurdly complicated. For every first time we wanted to setup we've had to call their support for assistance. Support is quick and fantastic but it's so difficult to do anything yourself. They seem to have gone out of their way to call features unique things instead of using standard language from other providers so you as an IT professional know what you're looking for to setup.
  • They have lots of KB articles, which their support will point you to. They are written on the most basic level and don't actually provide the help you need. For example, the KB page will tell you the list of options on the page... but not actually tell you what you do, why you might use them, or define their terminology.
  • Their email threat management system has several nice features. One of the features available is that it will rewrite links in emails so that users click the link and it sandboxes the link, testing it on their server space and the user sees it there. This means the actual link in the email gets changed to the address of one of their servers. As a law firm, the EXACT LINKS are important to maintain in our communications and editing actual data from our clients to point to a Mimecast server is an unacceptable practice. I wish they had an alternative that did not edit the link itself on the page.

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.

When calling them you get best in the world customer services but as previously mentioned their online community and capabilities are a bit lacking. They want you to log into their portal to see updates on issues (vs. using a public facing service) and I rarely find the answers to my issues in electronic format. Their online presence is only helpful with the simplest of issues.

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.

Previously we have only used the default on-premise exchange that comes with SBS. This was very simple and only provided basic filtering of spam and junk mail. We weren't able to filter impersonation mail or emails with malicious code

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

Mimecast Secure Email Gateway

  • Positive - It's hard to put a dollar amount on prevention, but we have been saved many times by the email and URL security filter. Users have clicked on links which were blocked by Mimecast. We have avoided costly ransomware and virus situations many times because of this.
  • Cost savings - Mimecast has worked with us to set reasonable prices, especially because we are a non-profit. At the time of purchase they were significantly cheaper than their closest competitor (Proofpoint).
  • Subscription cost. This is a subscription product so overall it can be more expensive than an on-premise solution. However we feel that the cost was well worth the security benefits.
