Overall Satisfaction with Cisco StealthWatch

The business problem which StealthWatch solves is visibility of the network traffic. Analyzing of flow (whether it is NetFlow or sFlow or IPfix) is very handy when it comes to troubleshooting, but StealthWatch extends usability of flow protocol beyond network operations. It gives possibility to use flow protocols data in cyber security domain to discover cyber security incidents by analyzing of network traffic behavior anomalies.
  • Operability with different protocols.
  • Strong visibility.
  • Integration with other Cisco Security products for complete defense.
  • More simplified implementation.
  • Deep integration with third-party security tools.
  • More simplified licensing.
  • Extended and complemented our company's product portfolio.
  • Increased customer interest in our services.
  • Gave competitive possibilities with other market competitors.
In addition [to] Cisco SteathWatch, we highly evaluated Cisco AnyConnect and Cisco Advanced Malware Protection for Endpoints (Cisco APM4E). Often [these] solutions complement each other and improve network security level. Each of them separate[ly] [are] handy products for you[r] SOC, but together they are much more effective rather than alone.
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.
When talk[ing] about StealthWatch support I can share my high marks for its wide integration options which expan day to day. Also need to admit that Cisco TAC [has] always be[en] trusted and showed high levesl of proficiency. This statement [is] also applicable regarding support of Cisco StealthWatch. In view of all the above, StealthWatch deserves high marks.
