Cisco Secure Endpoint Primary Use Case

Neal Gravatt - PeerSpot reviewer
Sr Network Engineer at a real estate/law firm with 1-10 employees

Cisco AMP is an anti-malware and antivirus product. It provides endpoint protection. We use it as our antivirus and anti-malware tool. We put it on all our computers. Our employees have it on their laptops because they leave the network and we can't protect them everywhere. Microsoft Windows comes with a built-in tool but it's not quite as powerful. So we use Cisco AMP and Microsoft System Center Endpoint.

Cisco AMP is our primary solution, but we don't uninstall the free ones that come with Windows.

It runs a little agent on the computer and then you manage it from a website platform. There is an application installed on the computers and they all connect up to the management console, which is hosted in Cisco's cloud.

You can use it for single endpoints. We have 3,000 that we use and then there's the free version of it you can use for home.

We use Cisco Secure Endpoint as an antivirus on computers. That is one of the important use cases that we have, as an antivirus.

We rely on it for antivirus. There are probably three levels, and we have the bottom tier, the most basic one.

It is on Cisco's cloud. We have the client installed on all workstations, but we don't have a server.

Being the primary AV/IDS within the enterprise, we have the solution deployed across multiple platforms including workstations, servers and Operating Systems.

The solutions conveniently integrates with other existing on-prem and cloud application will relatively minimum to stand up, using APIs and security best practices.

Most out-of-the-box features are either being utilized or pipelined to be deployed going forward, including MAP, ETHOS, SPERO, Exploit Prevention, SecureX, and Tetra which serves as an offline definition repository for workstation who are unable to pull definition updates using the default Cisco AMP cloud route.

I'm hoping that this is protecting me from all the harmful issues that are happening, because we know exactly what kind of world we are living in on the internet.

AMP 4 Endpoints protect our workstation (ca 300), our VDI environment (ca 250), and our servers (ca 50).

The old product was from Trend Micro and was just a simple antivirus solution. It was ok, but it was just an antivirus. We needed something more than just an antivirus that is used by every end-user. We were looking for a tool can we trust, and something that can schedule some things, implement scripts, analyze malware, perform advanced scans, etc. Our company, as an ISP for many customers, has to be protected from vulnerabilities.

It is used especially to connect with MDM, covering security and monitoring services.

It protects user devices, especially for field services.

Customers need some infrastructure on the cloud, e.g., Amazon and Google. We also need some testing and stage environments to perform tests.
