Cisco Secure Network Analytics (Stealthwatch)

Cisco StealthWatch is well suited when you need to deal with big amounts of traffic. For example, big enterprises, data centers, [and] banks. [In] other words, it does a good job in cases when you have a lot of users with different access levels from different departments and maybe in different regions. So you need to have a clear vision of what [is] happening in your network right now.

Sophos UTM

UTM works great if you want a solid, obvious firewall. There's not a lot of second-guessing as to what you are about to do with every change you make. If you incorporate their wireless access points and RED (remote ethernet device) for remote users or small offices, it's considerably much easier to set up than other comparable solutions. If you are looking to manage your firewalls via the cloud, you are out of luck.

Sophos UTM

  • Firewall Protection. The protection is unmatched, setup it a little daunting, but once set up it pretty much runs itself.
  • Site-to-site VPN. Super easy to deploy so we are able to network all our sites together.
  • The DHCP server function is actually really nice, I prefer using it over the traditional way of using a DC for DHCP.

Cons

Cisco Secure Network Analytics (Stealthwatch)

  • As with new technologies, learning curves are a given. On this one, there is a slight curve before you fully grasp it.
  • User interface can be improved to better user experience.

Sophos UTM

  • Navigating the portal can be tricky depending on what needs to be done
  • It would be helpful if the SSLVPN client agent had more logging capabilities

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.

The interface is no non-sense and easy to understand. No need for any consultants to help implement this solution. The performance is consistent and solid. Paired with a good amount of firmware and definitions, it's hard to find any fault in this product. It's interoperability with other Sophos products make a compelling argument to invest in more Sophos products.

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.

The week link of Sophos UTM is the customer support. I haven't had to use it often, but when I do, the wait times can easily be an hour or two. Once I am talking to someone, the support is excellent. The support agents are knowledgeable and can quickly diagnose the issue and get you to a resolution.

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.

Sophos UTM

I would rate Sophos second on this list right below Webroot. Webroot has an easier user interface and policy builder. However, Sophos would be on top of its UI would be improved. I would rank CrowStrike third and McAfee last. Sophos is great for complex environments that have multiple needs.
