What is most valuable?

The interface is very easy to use. It's a very simple product to use in general. There is not a lot of administrative overhead.

How has it helped my organization?

It allowed us to move up from simple, traditional antivirus protection to next-generation without a big expense and without a steep learning curve.

What needs improvement?

The product could stand to be a bit more advanced. It's very simple. You don't have a lot of ability to customize properly. For example, it does not handle whitelisting… more»

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

For a next-generation antivirus, this solution is pretty inexpensive. Cylance is about twice the cost. Barkley is a much lower-priced product compared to others like… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Before we worked with this solution we used Sophos. Just the standard Sophos antivirus package. The reason why we switched is because there was a push to move toward… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would probably rate this product as a five out of ten. They'll have to add more features and they need to provide better support. As far as advice I'd give to others… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this solution we did look at Carbon Black — which is actually a preferable solution — but it was just too expensive so that's why we didn't choose that.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the user-friendly interface. Our customers ask for something that is easy to use, easy to manipulate and doesn't require too much intervention. This is where SentinelOne scored big against CrowdStrike and Carbon Black. This solution is easy to install.

What needs improvement?

This solution would be more attractive to customers if the price were lower.

What other advice do I have?

I have done POCs with this solution for two customers and there has been no negative feedback. My advice for anybody considering this product is to do a POC and check to ensure it fits their environment. In some areas, this may be the best product to use, but in another environment, another product or another solution would be a better fit. It's always a matter of doing the POC and trying to get… more»

What is most valuable?

Trend Micro covers many things. The solution right now is called EDR. It's a good solution and they have something called Suite that incorporates many engines like encryption, GLB, and antivirus.

What needs improvement?

I think if they invest in better training and training partners, it could be even better but they have good coverage here in the Middle East now, especially in Egypt. I cannot recommend something right now. Trend Micro covers many things but there is something called ATP, advanced threat prevention… more»

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

It's well priced at a yearly rate. The price itself depends on whether the solution is a full suite, half suite, or some other engine. It's different according to the consumer's requests.

What other advice do I have?

As a salesman, I encourage the customer to buy the full suite for the engines. The biggest lesson I learned is about the EPR solution. Some people say it's easier to use this type of product. This is the next generation of antivirus technology. I would rate this solution as seven and a half out of… more»
