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.

VMware Carbon Black Cloud Endpoint Standard (formerly Cb Defense)

Cb Defense has been working very well in our organization. It is giving us much better insight into the applications that people are running on their systems (without authorization). This software is also great because it provides visibility into systems that are remote (off the network but still have Internet access). The out of band feature is great to help ensure that the systems are protected even when a user is traveling.

Pros

Cisco Secure Endpoint (formerly Cisco AMP)

  • lightweight connector
  • great integration with other security products
  • highly effective
  • will also alert for vulnerable software being used on your systems

VMware Carbon Black Cloud Endpoint Standard (formerly Cb Defense)

  • History of Process Execution, really anything that happens in the system is easily seen within the Dashboard. I can determine if a bad actor has infected the system, be it malware, backdoor, rootkit, Trojan, then from that point, I can put the system into Quarantine.
  • Being able to quarantine the system from the Dashboard. With these type of tools, pulling the power and running a hard drive image is not needed. Put the system in quarantine, start the analysis. A year ago, the network engineer might move the system into a VLAN that has no access to anything, except the system performing the remote analysis... Now I do not have to rely on anyone to move a system, power it down, pull the drive, or image the drive. I can just start the analysis right from my workstation.
  • The Live Response, again goes hand in hand with the quarantine feature.
  • By now, I am sure you see a process. Its simple, and easy and all done from a cloud-based console, called the dashboard. .. deploy the agent, create the policy, and active live response, set up email alerts, and monitor your endpoints... you are now ready to perform a triage in the event of an infection. We have step 1, step 2, step 3... but, just remember, things do happen, nothing is perfect, but this product has its advantages.

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.

  • Policy management can be cumbersome. It is simple to set up a single policy but you have no way to apply the rules to multiple groups. If you need to set up the same rule to multiple policies, you need to type it over again.
  • Agent updates can be very slow to deploy. We use a mix of rolling out updates via the web console and our management appliance. It can take several weeks to update all agents.
  • We can be confused on why a rule will apply to a file. Sometimes something is blocked but we don't understand why.

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.

The console of the product is very easy to use. It provides great detailed information about all aspects of things occurring on the endpoint. It was easy to deploy and set up. The centralized cloud-based interface has made it easy to add two domains and manage them under a single pane with multiple admins. The only reason I wouldn't give it a higher score is a little bit of lag between updated info from the clients and also the lack of accountability in the deployment process. You set the deployment up for multiple machines and can't easily see if it was successful and/or it takes a while to see if it succeeded or failed.

First, I need to disclose that our support is provided by SecureWorks. We purchased CB Defense from them, and they provide 24x7 monitoring and notification services for the solution and its deployment on our endpoints. To date, we are very pleased with this arrangement

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.

Cb is cloud-based and has a more advanced policy management. It also has better forensics information. Cost was similar, but Cb added cost savings in terms of IT management resources. We also have the ability to talk directly with engineers and have input on feature updates.

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

VMware Carbon Black Cloud Endpoint Standard (formerly Cb Defense)

  • Cb Defense has had a positive impact on the business objectives since we've been able to check off "advanced threat prevention".
