We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The analysis engine is a very valuable feature.""It is a stable solution.""The GUI makes administration tasks straightforward.""The most valuable feature is the protection and the way it works, the technology is what I like the most.""The most valuable features of Fortinet FortiSandbox are customization, ICAP protocol, and integration with other vendors. Additionally, the security work very well.""The dynamic behavior analysis is excellent. We have many attacks caught by the FortiSandbox as zero-day attacks. Additionally, the administration is simple and can be customized to fit your companies needs.""The main benefit of Fortinet FortiSandbox is that it allows organizations to detect and prevent unknown threats from entering an infrastructure.""Fortinet FortiSandbox is scalable."

"Improved our systems and our customers' by providing better malware protection, defense against zero-day threats, and improved network security.""The sandbox feature of FireEye Network Security is very good. The operating system itself has many features and it supports our design.""The MVX Engine seems to be very capable against threats and the way it handles APTs is impressive.""Very functional and good for detecting malicious traffic.""We see ROI in the sense that we don't have to react because it stops anything from hurting the network. We can stop it before we have a bigger mess to clean up.""I also like its logging method. Its logging is very powerful and useful for forensic purposes. You can see the traffic or a specific activity or how something entered your network and where it went.""If we are receiving spam emails, or other types of malicious email coming from a particular email ID, then we are able to block them using this solution.""Initially, we didn't have much visibility around what is occurring at our applications lower level. For instance, if we are exposed to any malicious attacks or SQL injections. But now we've integrated FireEye with Splunk, so now we get lots of triggers based on policy content associated with FireEye. The solution has allowed for growth and improvement in our information security and security operations teams."

"The area I would like this solution to be improved in is the integrations for Sandbox with AI and big data ML mechanisms. I think this would be a practical improvement.""The initial setup of Fortinet FortiSandbox is complex. You cannot only deploy Fortinet FortiSandbox without deploying the stack of Fortinet solutions. The implementation and integration are challenging tasks with the device and placement in the network. We needed to do POC and offloading testing.""There could be more templates and a higher number of simulated VMs to configure more use cases. Sometimes we need to configure many use cases in many different environments, and if the number of VMs that we configure is limited, we have to remove some and reconfigure the environment if we need another environment.""If we can have more dashboards, it would be good.""For the MSSPs, it would be great if the product could display all the threat chains on a dashboard since it is an area where the tool is currently lacking.""Most people are confused about how to use the right integration of the right Fortinet product.""It should be easier to import custom virtual machines. Some of the VMs that are in FortiSandbox don't have the applications that we have in our environment. We need to import a VM with specific applications that we use in our environment. Have all the licenses because this is a real environment. You need a license for the Windows client you run on it. It's possible to import custom VMs, but it's a pain to do it. I would like a tool that simplifies the process.""For additional features, maybe a form of execution pain files in a non-virtual environment because it has threats that identify when it is being run in a virtual machine."

"Management of the appliance could be greatly improved.""Stability issues manifested in terms of throughput maximization.""It would be great if we could create granular reports based on the protocols, types of attacks, regions of attack, etc. Also we would like to easily be able to add exceptions to rules in cases of false positives.""I heard that FireEye recently was hacked, and a lot of things were revealed. We would like FireEye to be more secure as an organization. FireEye has to be more protective because it is one of the most critical devices that we are using in our environment. They have a concept called SSL decryption, but that is only the packet address. We would like FireEye to also do a lot of decryption inside the packet. Currently, FireEye only does encryption and decryption of the header, but we would like them to do encryption and decryption of the entire packet.""It would be a good idea if we could get an option to block based upon the content of an email, or the content of a file attachment.""I would love to see better reporting. Because you can't export some of the reports in proper formats, it is hard to extract the data from reports.""The world is currently shifting to AI, but FIreEye is not following suit.""Its documentation can be improved. The main problem that I see with FireEye is the documentation. We are an official distributor and partner of FireEye, and we have access to complete documentation about how to configure or implement this technology, but for customers, very limited documentation is available openly. This is the area in which FireEye should evolve. All documents should be easily available for everyone."
