Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It provides good protection from ransomware and malware attacks. It is very good as compared to other products. If any threat is there, their support is very good. They immediately respond to the users and do a follow-up. They call us and also provide email support.""It can be deployed in autonomous mode, and then it automatically blocks malware threats.""We are using almost all of the features and we find it quite good overall.""The product is very easy to use. Customers really appreciate that.""This solution requires less management and is very easy to use.""It's transparent, so it's not something where every user has to press a button to download or do the thing. It is centralized, in fact. Personally, I use Malwarebytes and other tools, which are fine for home use. Cynet is also relatively silent in terms of operation, except when it's required to act.""The initial setup is very fast and very easy.""The most valuable feature is the monitored support behind it."

"The central management of the anti-virus features for our end user is a very valuable aspect of the solutions.""It's easy to deploy.""It is doing its job. We use it for standard antivirus purposes and for making sure that people aren't downloading infected attachments. Because we use the cloud version, it is easy to maintain. We don't have to do anything to really maintain it. It gets updated automatically.""Sophos EPP Suite's most valuable feature is ease of use.""It's very simple to use. The managing of the endpoints is very easy.""Synchronized security is a great feature. My firewall knows exactly what is happening in my endpoint.""The anti-malware and web filtering are the solutions most valuable aspects.""Great cloud management."

Cons
"The inability to add contact information inside the Cynet is also an issue because it makes things more complicated. I would like to have a simple feature to enter a contact name and number for the person taking care of that unit or that server.""In terms of what could be improved, I would say the usability of this product for new threats. Meaning, not everything which is new is properly seen by the product and not all the required actions are taken.""The reporting is a little weak and could be improved. The other downside is that Cynet does not use the local time zone. It's based off of Greenwich Mean Time.""I would like to see support for mobile protection and some additional reports included.""Compliance reports need to improve.""Linux servers are not supported.""Most of their times are in Greenwich Mean Time. I would like to see more local time zones.""Could have better integration with other security applications."

More Cynet Cons →

"Sophos does not currently inform users of potential compatability issues with Windows updates.""The solution has a strange technical support process where you need to move through all of these tiers before you can get to someone who can help you. They should streamline the process and make it easier to speak to the correct level of support from the outset.""The solution isn't quite accurate enough. It provides a lot of false positives.""The management console need improvement.""If we could bypass the first couple of levels of support when we have a problem then it would be easier and quicker when we need an issue resolved.""It would be ideal if the price could be lowered a little bit.""Sophos is lacking in the granularity of optimization, so having more control would be better.""The solution could improve on the resource management, it is a bit heavy on the resources."
