It's easy to set up and manage

What is our primary use case?

It's on-premise. There are three Kaspersky appliances — EPP, EDR, and the sandbox — that all work together. If someone wants to secure their internal endpoints, they can use the EBB and the EDR tools. You can use these to investigate traffic on the endpoint. The sandboxing feature is used to check the files. 

What needs improvement?

I'd like Kaspersky to be more stable and secure.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been providing Kaspersky for many years. Before I joined this company, my company worked for several years with various endpoint protection solutions by Kaspersky, Trend Micro, Carbon Black, and others.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Yeah, yeah. Stable and scalable.

Yeah, yeah. Stable and scalable.

How are customer service and support?

Kaspersky support has cooperated with us. They were very helpful.

How was the initial setup?

Setting up Kaspersky is easy, but it requires two or three core members from our team, including admins and managers if necessary. And that is because of the administration that I mentioned. And we set up an SQL Server to manage Kaspersky. With help from the customer team, it takes only six to seven days to get it working. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Kaspersky requires a license. I don't remember how much it costs exactly, but it's charged per appliance. 

What other advice do I have?

I rate Kaspersky Endpoint Security eight out of 10. I recommend it.

Good dashboards, easy to manage, and responsive support, but DLP features need to be added

Using dashboards, it is very easy to manage.

Kaspersky is lacking in features for DLP and protection against ransomware. I would like to see the inclusion of support for device management and device control.

For 300 nodes, we pay about 15,000 Malaysian Ringgit ($3,500 USD).

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution and I recommend it, although if they could provide more features like deep security, DLP, and device management, then it would be much better. 

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Provides stable protection for all our systems, file servers and domain controllers

What is our primary use case?

We may be using version 13 or 14, although I can't say for certain.  The solution provides protection for all our systems, file servers, endpoints and domain controllers.

What needs improvement?

We are dissatisfied with certain functions, such as those for application updates, which are not usable and don't work.  The application updates and drive encryption are lacking. The former cannot be used or monitored. We would like to be able to use our domain controller for management purposes.  The solution could also be more secure. 

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Kaspersky Endpoint Security for three years.
