FireEye Network Security

It’s a dedicated Network Advanced Threat Detection and
Prevention solution. Easy maintenance and low operating costs fit perfectly for
SMEs. Variety of appliance selection makes NX the perfect choice for large
enterprises. As it’s a dedicated solution with its own appliance, price is higher
compared to NGTP add on solutions. FireEye is an ecosystem therefore when you’ve
the EX or HX vice versa, you should be looking to NX. Otherwise, you’re missing
the threat intel exchange on the network side reverse is the true. Sizing is
important before the purchase, if you select a low end model for a busy network
you lose your initial investment. For multiple NX deployments I highly
recommend CMS. Without CMS you’ll lose the threat intel exchange and this will
negatively reduce the risk scores.

Great for large enterprises 10k users or more and as part of defense in depth. Medium and small business you are better off looking for a cheaper UTM solution that does it all in one. It comes down to cost, are you willing to fund the cost of breaking out IPS functionality or moving towards a unified solution?

  • Tipping point had a very nice GUI interface that sat on top of snort rules. It was easy to access, had nice customization of dashboards and output to syslog for SIEM solutions.
  • It was easy to configure rule sets, allow groups or singular allow/blocks or white-listing.
  • Security rule sets could be tweaked up or down and allow/drops signatures could be configured to help increase performance.

Cons

FireEye Network Security

  • Very first detected APT sample can pass the NX even it's inline blocking mode.
  • Performance optimization for busy networks is cumbersome.
  • CMS does not provide all the management capabilities, CLI or local config. Should be done for advanced customization.
  • Constant limitations of tcpdump/ packet capture for 10G interfaces.
  • IPS functionality is a bit cumbersome, not a full feature IPS, lack of signatures and customization of IPS signatures.
  • It's not a full NDR solution or a UBA solution.
  • Lack of device or user mapping.
  • Forensics is based on the specific APT. May not provide the whole story and need some additional tools.
  • You cannot make manual submission to NX (needs AX).
  • You cannot access the kernel directly for deep analy[sis] or troubleshooting (assist from FireEye Support should be taken).

  • Biggest qualms I had with TippingPoint was that it was just a tad on the expensive side for what you get. Nowadays everything has gone UTM in firewalls and they do it all including IPS as part of the basic functionality so really, TP is losing a massive market share.
  • Don't see a future in the roadmap with so many other vendors getting onto the "unified" wagon and adding IPS as part of their service and at a cheaper price.

FireEye NX is a solid product. It gives you sustainable
security throughout the organization. NX detection engines are more capable
compared to others. Its catch rate is higher, FP rate is lower, [and] speed is
awesome. NX can work for highly regulated environments with 1 way solution.
Operation costs are much lower. Software quality is very good. It may have bugs, but these bugs do not compromise the security in general. SOC team loves the
FireEye NX for its pinpoint detection capabilities. Local and partner support
is exceptional.

  • Negative cash flow, positive addition to our defense in depth strategy at one of the largest healthcare organizations in Georgia (at that time).
