Cisco Secure Endpoint (formerly Cisco AMP)

AMP has effectively cleaned malware on our endpoints. Unfortunately, there have been many false positives with no real explanation or detail. The engine that runs AMP is somewhat heavy on system resources, you should carefully consider the impact on production servers before deploying this to the enterprise. Since AMP is very configurable, it can be used in a variety of ways on any operating system or platform including iPhone, and Linux.

Sophos Central Device Encryption (formerly SafeGuard)

We found the incorporated system of both AV and Encryption to be an absolute breath of fresh air for us.It is great for small and mid-sized companies. We rolled this out across our 4 global regions. We created region-specific groups for our endpoints and placed the appropriate endpoints into those groups. [Then] we defined policies for AV and Encryption that would be used inter-region and assigned roles to the different regions' support staff. Great stuff.

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.

I believe it is great for everything it is supposed to be doing. It is simple enough anyone could really manage it and yet has enough depth to allow for some of the advanced options. Navigating is very quick and easy and does everything you need so overall solid piece to add.

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.

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.

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.
