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

For a stand-alone business this should do the trick, but if using across multiple clients (multi-tenancy not an option). Default settings within the program will cause performance issues if not tweaked, meaning someone with networking experience may be necessary. Not ideal for MSP's unless they only have a few clients, as the manageability must be done within "the walls" of each company.

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.

  • Norton works quite quickly and is efficient enough to detect threats
  • It is very easy and simple to install and is without any complications and irrelevant inquiries.
  • Norton is available at a very reasonable price in the market and is not heavy on pocket.

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.

  • Cost could be an issue. They could perform a free trial at the beginning for people to check.
  • It would be good if you can do an online free check of your computer.
  • While the updates are good sometimes your computer is attacked by a virus they did not expect.

I did renew it before because support is great and cost is great. I believe that Norton has a very long experience in what they do and they are doing a great job with all the updates they provide and the work they are doing. Moreover Norton is going in the right direction for sure.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered
Cisco
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.

User-friendly interface (it's not just AV and users who were interacting with the product), performance, resource usage (most of the computers were not very fresh and that factor was very critical), efficiency, it shouldn't be just sitting on a PC - it should protect it, what was perfectly done with that product.

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.

NortonLifeLock (formerly Symantec)
  • Poor performance against Spyware and other threats despite claiming to act against them (recognizes very few and eliminates less) It is limited to viruses.
  • Regular blocking of incoming scripts (in front of other antivirus)
  • Little or almost no compatibility with the Windows XP Firewall, but they are involved.
