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 that it just unintrusively works in the background to carry out the protection.
Being a cloud solution it is very flexible in serving internal and external connections and a broad range of devices.
It collects and caches and the knowledge of machine learning from different customers to take to the cloud. It makes it better to use for everybody. It allows for quick learning and updates and can, therefore, offer zero-day malware security. This sharing of metadata helps make the solution very safe.
What I like the most about it is the dynamic grouping, where you get to group endpoints based on setup criteria. That's pretty cool. I like the simplified policy management and simplified white-listing process.

Menachem D PritzkerDirector of Growth at IT Central Station
On July 15, 2020, several verified Twitter accounts with millions of followers were compromised in a cyberattack. Many of the hacked accounts we protected using two-factor authentication, which the hackers were somehow able to bypass. Hacked accounts included Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Mike Bloomberg, Warren Buffett, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West, Benjamin Netanyahu, and several high profile tech companies, including Apple and Uber. The hackers posted variation of a message asking follower to transfer thousands of dollars in Bitcoin, with the promise that double the donated amount would be returned. How could Twitter have been better prepared for this? How do you rate their response?

What is Endpoint Protection (EPP) for Business?
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 an EPP solution, 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.
