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.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

It is valuable software for when it comes to a large or medium organization, since it helps to protect the endpoints, but as the number of servers increases its value increases. However, it is important to keep in mind that when it comes to low end devices, its protection can affect their performance. This is because it is not a software with a very light agent.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

  • USB Control. Only allow certain usb devices to be connected and allow on certain users to have the ability to us usb keys.
  • Easy of Administration, configuration and installation.
  • Support is excellent. When I've called in for help they go above and beyond to help you resolve you issue or answer your questions on a certain configuration.

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.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

  • I don't like that I have to maintain the client and keep it up to date. Updating the client is not a very easy process.
  • Deploying the client could be easier. They have a deployment tool, but it doesn't really get to all PCs, which means I still have to manually deploy it.
  • Because the product has so much customization, it can also be very difficult to set up and understand.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection has done a sufficient job at identifying true positives. However, the UI could be improved and the amount of false positives is a little too frequent for my liking

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.

No, besides to review documentation prior to beginning. That is what helped lead to a smooth implementation

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.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

The alternatives we tested we all good contenders with comparable features to Symantec Advanced Threat Protection. In the end there we a few minor pros that pushed us over the edge; The GUI was more easy to navigate, the set-up appeared to be simpler and the Symantec name gave us more confidence in their threat detection capabilities.

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

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

  • Some digital assets were lost due to failures to detect various threats.
  • We had to use other products in combination in order to trust that all threats were actually detected, taking extra time. We couldn't use just SATP.
  • Ability to quickly manage/deploy via AD made maintenance of the application itself quick and easy.
