We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"If somebody has been compromised, the question always is: How has it affected other devices in the network? Cisco AMP gives you a very neat view of that.""It doesn't impact the devices. It is an agent-based solution, and we see no performance knock on cell phones. That was a big thing for us, especially in the mobile world. We don't see battery degradation like you do with other solutions which really drain the battery, as they're constantly doing things. That can shorten the useful life of a device.""The ability to detonate a particular problem in a sandbox environment and understand what the effects are, is helpful. We're trying, for example, to determine, when people send information in, if an attachment is legitimate or not. You just have to open it. If you can do that in a secure sandbox environment, that's an invaluable feature. What you would do otherwise would be very risky and tedious.""The solution makes it possible to see a threat once and block it everywhere across all endpoints and the entire security platform. It has the ability to block right down to the file and application level across all devices based on policies, such as, blacklisting and whitelisting of software and applications. This is good. Its strength is the ability to identify threats very quickly, then lock them and the network down and block the threats across the organization and all devices, which is what you want. You don't want to be spending time working out how to block something. You want to block something very quickly, letting that flow through to all the devices and avoiding the same scenario on different operating systems.""The most valuable feature is signature-based malware detection.""The visibility and insight this solution gives you into threats is pretty granular. It has constant monitoring. You can get onto the device trajectory to look at a threat, but you can also see what happened prior to the threat. You can see what happened after the threat. You can see what other applications were incorporated into the execution of the threat. For example, you have the event, but you see that the event was launched by Google Chrome, which was launched by something else. Then, after the event, something else was launched by whatever the threat was. Therefore, it gives you great detail, a timeline, and continuity of events leading up to whatever the incident is, and then, after. This helps you understand and nail down what the threat is and how to fix it.""Any alert that we get is an actionable alert. Immediately, there is information that we can just click through, see the point in time, what happened, what caused it, and what automatic actions were taken. We can then choose to take any manual actions, if we want, or start our investigation. We're no longer looking at digging into information or wading through hundreds of incidents. There's a list which says where the status is assigned, e.g., under investigation or investigation finished. That is all in the console. It has taken away a lot of the administration, which we would normally be doing, and integrated it into the console for us.""The solution's integration capabilities are excellent. It's one of the best features."

"The ability to push policies and also to restrict an installation or to restrict any form of threat within the policy has been quite useful.""It's a very user-friendly product.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the protection itself, which works well for us.""The solution has a very good endpoint feature.""I would say that this solution has the best support team in this kind of Endpoint protection product.""The most valuable thing for me is that when I'm using the internet and I reach some site that isn't so secure, or isn't recommended because they don't have a good reputation, ESET will notify me.""Technical support has been very good. They are helpful and responsive.""The software and hardware inventory that you can create by using the console is valuable. It is also very light on hardware resources."

"The most valuable feature is user-based policy provision.""It is scalable and stable and the initial setup is the easiest part of using the product.""Technical support is excellent.""The agents are easy to deploy.""MVISION Endpoint is so much easier and so much simpler for the lay security personnel to handle.""I have not received any complaints about the performance."

Cons
"The technical support is very slow.""The GUI needs improvement, it's not good.""...the greatest value of all, would be to make the security into a single pane of glass. Whilst these products are largely integrated from a Talos perspective, they're not integrated from a portal perspective. For example, we have to look at an Umbrella portal and a separate AMP portal. We also have to look at a separate portal for the firewalls. If I could wave a magic wand and have one thing, I would put all the Cisco products into one, simple management portal.""I would recommend that the solution offer more availability in terms of the product portfolio and integration with third-party products.""The connector updates are very easily done now, and that's improving. Previously, the connector had an issue, where almost every time it needed to be updated, it required a machine reboot. This was always a bit of an inconvenience and a bug. Because with a lot of software now, you don't need to do that and shouldn't need to be rebooting all the time.""We had a lot of noise at the beginning, and we had to turn it down based on exclusions, application whitelisting, and excluding unknown benign applications. Cisco should understand the need for continuous updates on the custom Cisco exclusions and the custom applications that come out-of-the-box with the AMP for Endpoints.""We have had some problems with updates not playing nice with our environment. This is important, because if there is a new version, we need to test it thoroughly before it goes into production. We cannot just say, "There's a new version. It's not going to give us any problems." With the complexity of the solution using multiple engines for multiple tasks, it can sometimes cause performance issues on our endpoints. Therefore, we need to test it before we deploy. That takes one to three days before we can be certain that the new version plays nice with our environment.""The room for improvement would be on event notifications. I have mine tuned fairly well. I do feel that if you subscribe to all the event notification types out-of-the-box, or don't really go through and take the time to filter out events, the notifications can become overwhelming with information. Sometimes, when you're overwhelmed with information, you just say, "I'm not going to look at anything because I'm receiving so much." I recommend the vendor come up with a white paper on the best practices for event notifications."

More Cisco Secure Endpoint Cons »

"ESET Endpoint Security should offer more integration with multi-attack frameworks.""There are some new antivirus technologies that rely on AI, artificial intelligence. ESET does not have this technology right now.""They should have better support for different languages and auto-upgrading.""The integration capabilities might be lacking a bit.""While we see dangers within our security system, it would help if there were popups that could immediately alert us or the user of the endpoint that something was detected.""The adware module could be improved.""The solution includes only Intrusion Detection and not IPS, which is an important feature that is missing in my version.""The solution lacks the automation I need."

More ESET Endpoint Security Cons »

"The initial setup can be a bit complicated for those unfamiliar with the product.""MVISION Endpoint is only compatible with Windows 10 and Windows 2016 and above. If I were using a Linux operating system, I would not be able to use MVISION Endpoint.""A policy-editing console should be added.""I would like to see more local integration for the applications that we use.""Intrusion detection and intervention seem to be falling behind the competition.""Endpoint resource utilization causes high levels of instability and that is something that needs improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have a license for 3,000 users and if we get up to 3,100 users, it doesn't stop working, but on the next renewal date you're supposed to go in there and add that extra 100 licenses. It's really good that they let you grow and expand and then pay for it. Sometimes, with other products, you overuse a license and they just don't work.""Our company was very happy with the price of Cisco AMP. It was about a third of what we were paying for System Center Endpoint Protection.""In our case, it is a straightforward annual payment through our Enterprise Agreement.""There is also the Cisco annual subscription plus my management time in terms of what I do with the Cisco product. I spend a minimal amount of time on it though, just rolling out updates as they need them and monitoring the console a couple of times a day to ensure nothing is out of control. Cost-wise, we are quite happy with it.""There are a couple of different consumption models: Pay up front, or if you have an enterprise agreement, you can do a monthly thing. Check your licensing possibilities and see what's best for your organization.""The Enterprise Agreement is like an all-you-can-eat buffet of Cisco products. In that vein, it was very affordable.""Licensing fees are on a yearly basis and I am happy with the pricing.""We can know if something bad is potentially happening instantaneously and prevent it from happening. We can go to a device and isolate it before it infects other devices. In our environment, that's millions of dollars saved in a matter of seconds."

"Its price is fair. If we compare it with any other retail product, it is a little harder to compete with.""Currently, we are running on a three-year license. The pricing might be around $20,000. There aren't any costs above the standard licensing fee.""Its price is reasonable.""I think it's available for a pretty fair price. If you know how to use it, then it's a very fair price for what you get.""The price of the solution is reasonable compared to competitors.""It is subjective. I don't think it is expensive. If you can have 10 user licenses for less than $100, I don't think it is expensive.""As is the general rule with anything, the solution could be cheaper.""I pay about $100 a year, so it's really cheap. I'm sure that if I need something else beyond more technical support, I'll need to pay more."

"Customers would need to purchase a license. If a customer purchases an MVISION Endpoint license, he may use that license to install ENS. It's a flexible license where you have the option to either use the McAfee security software or the Windows Defender managed by McAfee, which is MVISION Endpoint.""MVISION is intended as an enterprise product and it is priced like one. This solution is within the price range of competitors at the enterprise level.""Licensing fees are billed on a yearly basis.""It is based on an annual subscription.""The pricing is mid-ranged and quite reasonable compared to other similar products."
