Stop advanced attacks with AMP for Endpoints

Before implementing AMP for Endpoints we had 4 separate Crypto Locker events, which impacted approximately 100 Support Services staff. The events resulted in these staff being offline and unable to perform their day to day function for 4-5 hours whilst the data was restored from backups. This also lead to loss of data between the backup and detected time of the event. By implementing AMP for Endpoints we have removed these advanced threats and have not had a further threat.

AMP has shown us just how many people click on bad links and how many viruses make it through to the email server. Implementing AMP has made it easier for us to find hosts that have an infection and has reduced the time we spend with infections on machines.

IT Administrator, Medium Enterprise Energy & Utilities Company

Cisco Advanced Malware Protection Customer Testimonial

Within a week of deploying AMP we had identified three separate instances where multiple users received an infected e-mail and attempted to open the attachment. AMP successfully blocked the file when our existing software did not. Not only did AMP save us from having to clean up a cryptolocker infection, but it also gave us visibility into who had opened the file, which we did not previously have. Now it makes me wish we had AMP for our e-mail platform.

Hospitality Company Prevents Attack with AMP for Endpoints

We are a hospitality company and certain franchises haven’t moved to point to point encryption and tokenization yet and that makes detecting malware with memory scraping capabilities very important to use. Recently AMP detected and alerted us to such an attack. Without AMP on this particular hotel computer, we wouldn’t have known that this attack ever occurred. It is possible it stopped thousands of credit card numbers from being stolen.

AMP for Endpoints is not just a point product, but an extension of my ecosystem. By deploying protection to the endpoint, my company moves past the border of the network and truly takes advantage of the new software-as-a-service environment. Backed by the vision of Cisco, AMP is a foundational product that can give us the visibility and forensic capability without management complexity.

Chief Information Security Officer, Medium Enterprise Computer Software Company

We can now see the path the machine has taken during a security threat, as well as the file path to see whether or not a threat has migrated across the network. Which is something we’ve not had the ability to see until we deployed AMP on our Cisco NGFW and on our endpoints.

Network Administrator, State & Local Government

Cisco Advanced Malware Protection Customer Testimonial

There were two big factors in selecting AMP. The first was Talos. We were impressed by what Talos is doing and no other vendor could come close to what Talos does. The second was the integration between Cisco products. Having the integration between AMP, FirePower, ISE, AnyConnect, etc. allows us to create a complete security solution without having to work with multiple vendors. That results in fewer support numbers to call, fewer compatibility and integration issues, and provides more visibility and control.

Dan Kelcher, Network/Server Administrator, Turck Inc.

[With AMP for Endpoints] the protection against botnets, ransomware and zero-day attacks are above and beyond the competition. The ease of use, endpoint visibility and patch management make this system extremely easy to use. It’s several steps ahead of any of the products we’ve tried before.

I find that AMP for Endpoints strengths are it’s ability to analyze unknown threats and build signatures for those threats, then trace those threats to other systems in the environment. It saves a significant amount of research. Things that might take a day or two to find and remediate take just a few hours now.
