I think a larger company that needs NetFlow data and has someone who can dedicate some time into learning the inner workings of StealthWatch could take advantage of all that StealWatch has to offer, but the suite itself may be too much to swallow for smaller staffed companies or companies that don't need this kind of visibility into network traffic.

I feel Cisco Secure Network Analytics should be used in every organization. The detection of anomalies and malicious actors is phenomenal. Being able to confidently talk to your manager and auditors about what is happening on your network is huge. Although if you cannot get reliable NetFlow from your network infrastructure this may not be the best tool for you.

Cisco Secure Network Analytics is a compulsion to any organization looking to secure their network in silence with a complete record and analysis of the threats. All the critical information of the client is also preserved for instance and assistance for future needs. Cyber-attacks can’t even think to roam about your network in any case.

Overall it's a great product that will help any IT experts see deeper into their network--specifically large networks that have thousands of users and traffic crossing around the globe. There could be need in a smaller network but it's probably not worth the cost. Cisco Secure Network Analytics (Stealthwatch) is another tool that is expensive but has a lot of configurability. Someone needs to be specifically responsible not just for keeping Cisco Secure Network Analytics (Stealthwatch) up to date but for following all the leads and rabbit holes it creates.

On of our use cases that we needed help with was around vulnerability data, netflow, and infrastructure logs all coming together to get anomaly detection. We are limited by what we can send to our SIEM, so seeing this do a lot of the leg work before we send it is very nice.

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.

I would suggest performing an initial deep-dive and analysis of the current state of your network and workflow in terms of maintenance, deployment, and management. If it takes quite an amount of effort for a single person or a team, for an extended period of time, then I would highly recommend taking a look at and perhaps deploying Cisco StealthWatch as it will solve all of the items above.

We used Cisco StealthWatch for threat intelligence, threat mapping, threat hunting, information security analysis, monitoring, and compliance. Our security operations teams mainly used it for incident response, forensic and root cause analysis. Also, it is very useful for insider threats, zero day vulnerabilities and malware, encrypted malicious malware, and behavioral analysis too.

If you can't answer two questions - I mentioned them before - about your network, then you really are not in a good place from a cyber security or even customer service standpoint. Regardless if your networking is outsourced to a vendor, you need some type of check and balance - and you NEED to know what's going on.

I was able to use this product to detect a botnet on our network - and using the details, and the ability to tie in other software, pivot from the endpoint (in Stealthwatch) to another program which allowed me to completely remediate the botnet before it spread.
