Strong and complete tool which gives comprehensive methods to discover cyber security incidents and prevent data leakage. In case of common use of Cisco StealthWatch and Cisco ISE, you will receive [the] ability [to] not just discover cyber security incidents but also dynamically respond to them. This makes StealthWatch one of most valuable products through[out] [the] whole Cisco Security product portfolio.

Overall winner because it exceeds our expectations by answering all our requirements and at the same time empowers our operations thru other built-in capabilities it has. Visibility is a key to security operations and Cisco StealthWatch really gives us a magnifying glass to check all logs in the network for threat intelligence and threat hunting.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Secure Network Analytics (Stealthwatch)

NTOP is the only thing out there, in my opinion, that provides similar type of visibility. But StealthWatch is the product all vendors should strive to emulate. It is easy to install; it is easy to configure; it works as advertised (and then some). I do recommend the three-day work shop they occasionally run - or some onsite training. The product is feature rich and the training will help you get the most out of it.
