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»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I 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?

From an application perspective, this solution is stable.

What needs improvement?

I feel that this product is more to bolster their marketing, rather than its use for actual synchronization. This solution is not able to deliver interprocess visibility when it comes to the endpoint, and this is something that needs to be… more»

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

Fortinet requires you to buy a lot of product in order for you to have proper protection.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have worked with, and am familiar with many security solutions. These include Palo Alto, Fortinet, Malwarebytes, Sophos, and Carbon Black.

What other advice do I have?

When it comes to Fortinet, the users are not a big fan of their current model. Bit by bit, they pull you into to buying the entire security fabric. You have to buy a lot of product, and a lot of licenses, to enable all of the features which… more»

What is most valuable?

On the management side, we liked the way it displays things.

What needs improvement?

The downside is that the information displayed is not enriched enough. There was not much information available, that we could see. It should provide more details about the events that they have detected. There should be more information available post-incident. Basically, the user is informed that… more»

What other advice do I have?

The lack of details for the user is partly because of the way they detect. it is done passively, rather than dynamically, so they don't have a lot of information about the things that they already caught. The suitability of this solution for any particular person will depend on their expectations. I… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have evaluated many products. In fact, we tested most of them for our purposes of developing our own. Because we did a competitive analysis, we are keeping most of the information private. However, I can say that SentinelOne, CrowdStrike, and Carbon Black give you a lot more information than… more»

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»
