Cisco Secure IPS

Cisco Secure IPS is required for every organization and it gives us all the advanced security features for more visibility and control on our incoming and outgoing network traffic. We can easy to configure and management is also very easy. You can deploy in the existing network very easily. The price is very low and performance is very high and it works very quickly on threats and takes the necessary action.

Rapid7 InsightVM (Nexpose)

For highly detailed reports of vulnerabilities in an environment, Rapid7 InsightVM (Nexpose) is top-notch. The data is easily manipulated to get the results you are looking for. Setting up groups for active scans on a schedule has been a great help as well as the ad-hoc reports for any new vulns being reported.

Pros

Cisco Secure IPS

  • The option to deploy it as a virtual machine in a UCS-E inside a Cisco Router is something to consider a lot. It simplifies a lot the deployment in places where you need to optimize resources and keep things simple. It also saves some money on unnecessary hardware.
  • Having the most complete license, we can have in the same box IPS, inspection for malware and URL filtering. As Cisco uses Talos Intelligence network to mitigate and evaluate risks, having this complete set of security features turns the box into a powerful resource to protect our remote locations. Considering the hyper-connected business we have today, it's almost impossible to think that we can run a business without this kind of protection.
  • The integration between Firepower NGIPS and other products, like Cisco ISE and Splunk, is also a key feature for this solution. In both cases, you can integrate the product to have the best of both. As a security appliance, it's very important for us to have all the logs centralized in Splunk and this is done simply connecting FMC (Firepower Management Console) to the Splunk collector.

Rapid7 InsightVM (Nexpose)

  • Being a vulnerability scanner tool, its purpose is to scan the systems to find the vulnerabilities. We can define the assets like IP address for the scans and it also allows to either schedule the scan at a preferred time or start the scan immediately. Upon completion of the scan, this tool can result provide the details like host type, OS information, hardware address, along with the vulnerabilities.
  • Rapid7 Nexpose has a list of templates to perform the scan. Once the templates are defined then the scans are performed accordingly.
  • It also contains an option to add credentials/authentication using passwords, usernames, private keys to perform the credential-based scans which I think is a great feature.

Cons

Cisco Secure IPS

  • Wish additional modules were included such as FireAmp.
  • Wish it was easier to include customized signatures if needed. Required to know how to code with Snort in order to add real customization.
Marc Uydess | TrustRadius Reviewer

Rapid7 InsightVM (Nexpose)

  • Frequent updates and console lockups.
  • A lot of issues with scans running long out of nowhere, causing resource issues for the next scans.

We didn't have any major issues that let us need support. Only, for this reason, I think Cisco Firepower deserves the rating. Even for small issues, the partner that helped us during the project could solve it quickly. There are also tons of documents and other online resources to help maintain, administer and support the product.

I gave it a seven due to the functionality and general ease of use after the initial setup headaches, but compared to Qualys, Rapid7 Nexpose falls short on features and ease of use. Their support drags this rating down a point as well. I have gone weeks with no update on semi-critical issues and typically have to make call after call to get a semi-coherent response.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Secure IPS

Cisco Secure IPS is our first product. We were not using any other tools before. We are very happy with the Cisco Secure IPS features and customer support
Anjali Nair | TrustRadius Reviewer

Rapid7 InsightVM (Nexpose)

For reporting, dashboard, content creation etc. Tenable SecurityCenter is the clear winner with over-the-top capabilities in their application. On the agents side this one was easier to implement and way easier to manage.

Return on Investment

Cisco Secure IPS

  • Has made it much easier to determine when incidents have occurred
  • Has been effective in reducing false positives and making solution management more efficient and cost effective
Jonathan Pauley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Rapid7 InsightVM (Nexpose)

  • After spending 2 years configuring, tuning, troubleshooting, and ultimately having nothing but regrets, we migrated away from the tool and accepted the loss.
  • Support had a variety of opinions, none of them consistent. No best practices. Lots of secret tricks known by support, none documented or shared until after problems are found.
  • Consulting services are available to come out and do a health check of your deployment, for a fee.
