    Cisco Secure Endpoint is a very good endpoint protection solution. It would be particularly good for someone with the time and ability to really work with it to get the most out of it. This would include the other Cisco product integrations and systems that it works well with.

    Symantec Ghost Solution Suite

    Symantec Ghost Solution Suite is well suited to standard images of company approved software and standard configurations for all users. When every user has the same computer configuration, it is easily managed with a standard image across the board. It is less effective if you need to have multiple configurations for different groups. It becomes cumbersome to manage all the various images. When you add to the complexity by having to address the different drivers for the different hardware model computers, this only adds to the overall number of images you will have to manage, create and keep updated. I find Ghost most helpful with standard hardware model computers and one or two images company wide.

    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.

    Symantec Ghost Solution Suite

    • Initial install could be easier. Had to call support to assist.
    • Joining domains had a few kinks that had to be figured out.

    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.

    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.
    Nicole McMillian | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Symantec Ghost Solution Suite

    • A positive impact of Ghost would be time. To deploy computers form scratch is very time consuming and labor intensive for the IT Department. Ghost clearly saves the time of the IT departments staff to quickly get a new computer out to user so they can spend their time on addressing other issues and being more productive.
    • Time is money. If the IT department is spending hours preparing computers and employees are out of a computer for an extended period of time waiting for one to be loaded, this is money lost to the company in paying employees to sit around and wait for a computer to be configured.
