Cisco Advanced Malware Protection Customer Testimonial

The advantage of Cisco AMP for Endpoints is that it provides a global view of overall security status that we did not have before. We used multiple AV services that could not be integrated with the Cisco ASA firewall. This centralized approach has benefited our IT Help Desk with advance notification of potential issues.

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.
