These reviews cover all of the best solutions from top endpoint protection vendors, from our esteemed community of enterprise technology professionals.

The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score.
The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score.
(20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.)
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in
that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product
with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) *
80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our
rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution
for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews;
two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old,
as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is Endpoint Protection?
When evaluating endpoint security products, the IT Central Station users were clear on what aspects were most important. Proactive protection is a clear indication of superior quality in a product, since the days of reactive protection are gone. Another essential feature to look for is the capability to block a variety of attack vectors, since testing with known malware simply isn't sufficient. Additionally, our members want to see good customer support, easy installation and removal, and competitive pricing for the endpoint security product.
