As specified earlier, the product is very helpful to monitor the FTP, ODBC, JDBC, SQL and remote commands. What queries are coming to the system and who is issuing the commands so that we can analyze the and restrict their access if its not required. It helped us catch [a lot of] unauthorized users.

Trellix (FireEye + McAfee)
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.

Cons
Fortra
  • Adding a user to the exit point manger and then specifying the same user to restrict for particular service is bit complex i feel, instead of that making only one entry to restriction would be good.
  • All Features are good
  • Can maintain all systems from central system.

Trellix (FireEye + McAfee)
  • 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).

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.
