It protects from signature-based attacks and signature-less attacks. The sandboxing technology, invented by FireEye, is very valuable. Our customers go for FireEye because of the sandboxing feature. When there is a threat or any malicious activity with a signature, it can be blocked by IPS. However, attacks that do not have any signatures and are very new can only be blocked by using the sandboxing feature, which is available only in FireEye. So, FireEye has both engines. It has an IPS engine and a sandbox engine, which is the best part. You can get complete network protection by using FireEye.

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.

It allows us to be more hands off in checking on emails and networking traffic. We can set up a bunch of different alerts and have it alert us.

The scalability has not been a problem. We have deployed the product in very high bandwidth networks. We have never had a problem with the FireEye product causing latency issues within our networks.

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.

Application categorization is the most valuable feature for us. Application filtering is very interesting because other products don't give you full application filtering capabilities.

Before FireEye, most of the times that an incident would happen nobody would be able to find out where or why the incident occurred and that the system is compromised. FireEye is a better product because if the incident already happened I know that the breach is there and that the system is compromised so we can take appropriate action to prevent anything from happening.

The features that I find most valuable are the MIR (Mandiant Incident Response) for checks on our inbound security.

The pricing is not reasonable. The user fee is not as high but the maintenance fee is expensive.

We currently do not use Palo Alto VM's and cannot comment on our real world experience. We do use PA-3020, PA-5050 and PA-5060 and they work great. We are planning on deploying Virtual Palo Alto in Azure once funding is provided. ~Andy Soliwoda
