We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Its most valuable features are its scalability and advanced threat protection for customers.""I am told that we get over 100 million emails a month. This filters them down and allows only somewhere about three million emails, which is a great help.""For the initial first level of support, we provide it from our side. If there's escalation required, we use Cisco tech for the AMP. And again, they are perfect. I mean, one of the best, compared to any other vendors.""The most valuable features of this solution are the IPS and the integration with ISE.""The simplicity of use is its most valuable feature. You can very clearly see things.""The stability of the solution is perfect. I believe it's the most stable solution on the market right now.""I am really satisfied with the technical support.""It is a very stable program."

"It is a good anti-malware product that is highly stable.""The product is stable. It has a small footprint, but it does a lot of heavy lifting.""One of the most valuable features is the signature updating in near real-time.""They are constantly updating the solution against malware.""We have clients who are also migrating from other anti-virus solutions to GravityZone because of the ease of use, ease of installation and the fact that it can be deployed in the cloud and the same software; you can actually install on other server or workstation. It automatically knows what it's protecting.""I have access to it from anywhere.""GravityZone can be controlled from the cloud.""I like that you can manage all the time and you can uninstall and install everything via the web console."

"We use Sophos Intercept X for Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) in our organization.""It is easy to change the size of its capabilities, i.e. to expand processes or scale the size of users.""We most value the price and interface quality with Sophos Intercept X. We focus on solution quality.""The most valuable feature is the supervisory side of it where we can watch the throughputs, and even the loading of the device, to see how much traffic is happening.""A valuable feature offered by Sophos is called Naked Security, and it entails the control managed by the firewall on the site regarding the desktop client interfacing with our cloud client.""It is a practically maintenance free intelligent system that independently protects environments from malicious attacks.""All of the features are very important for anyone who is supporting a large number of computers.""After that, the client switched to Sophos to get the protection they lacked. It either works or it doesn’t and Sophos works."

Cons
"We would like to have an API integration with a SIEM solution, because as far as I know, it currently hasn't yet been released.""I would like them to add whatever makes filtering more advanced in scanning and blocking for malware in emails.""The solution needs more in-depth analytics.""In the next version of this solution, I would like to see the addition of local authentication.""The initial setup is a bit complex because you need to execute existing antiviruses or security software that you have on your device.""In the next release, I would for it to have back up abilities. I would like the ability to go back to a point in time to when my PC was uninfected and to the moment of when the infection happened.""The reporting and analytics areas of the solution need to be improved.""I would like more seamless integration."

"In the future, maybe this will need to morph into AI threat intelligence.""The one thing that we are missing and want to see is user analytics. So, that is what I'm really interested in: behavior analytics and end user behavior.""What's happening now in this field is artificial intelligence, the behavior part. That is now the trend in many products, including Bitdefender, and this is where the product needs improvement.""I would like to see a remote desktop for installed endpoints so administrators can see what is on a user's screen or what a user is doing.""The pricing should be improved. The user interface has been improved on a yearly basis. The key issue is that they need to look at their pricing.""The solution wasn't designed to be used in France.""We find it's making the machines run slow.""The outreach from support was a bit bad according to their plan, but we've got two people here that manage and support GravityZone and interact with them and they manage it very well."

More Bitdefender GravityZone Ultra Cons »

"They should work on the logs and events. Sophos Intercept X needs to increase the interface test so that it can export to a live event.""Technical support can be improved. There could be shared support, i.e. where someone in Egypt can respond.""Sophos needs to create a YouTube channel with educational material for technicians or engineers.""In terms of the site-to-site VPN elements, they tend to concentrate. It's quite simple when there are Meraki devices at both ends of the VPN but if there is another user at one end, on another device, it can be a bit tricky. So they could really simplify that process a bit.""The initial setup was not very user-friendly.""The product defends very well on its own but could possibly use enhancement in giving users more controls.""The price of this solution can be improved.""They might want to offer an MSP model for licensing, to offer the solution as a software as a service."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The costs of 50 licenses of AMP for three years is around $9,360.""The price is very good.""The visibility that we have into the endpoint and the forensics that we're able to collect give us value for the price. This is not an overly expensive solution, considering all the things that are provided. You get great performance and value for the cost.""Whenever you are doing the licensing process, I would highly advise to look at what other Cisco solutions you have in your organization, then evaluate if an Enterprise Agreement is the best way to go. In our case, it was the best way to go. Since we had so many other Cisco products, we were able to tie those in. We were actually able to get several Cisco security solutions for less than if we had bought three or four Cisco security solutions independently or ad hoc.""In our case, it is a straightforward annual payment through our Enterprise Agreement.""Our company was very happy with the price of Cisco AMP. It was about a third of what we were paying for System Center Endpoint Protection.""There are a couple of different consumption models: Pay up front, or if you have an enterprise agreement, you can do a monthly thing. Check your licensing possibilities and see what's best for your organization.""The Enterprise Agreement is like an all-you-can-eat buffet of Cisco products. In that vein, it was very affordable."

"The price is per license per endpoint. The price is different for everyone, but we find the price is cheap for us.""Licensing is done on a yearly basis and it's workstation-based.""It has a suitable price for every company and organization.""There is a fully functional trial that we used and we didn't have any issues.""There are different packages available that vary in terms of licensing fees."

More Bitdefender GravityZone Ultra Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We renew the license for one year at $10,000.""The price is pretty good.""When you start going to the EDR technologies and the MTR, it is a little bit expensive. It's a very good technology, and obviously, you're going to pay for it, but the pricing could do a little bit of work.""We were able to eliminate the ransomware using the one-month, full-featured trial license.""Licensing is based on the number of users. They give a discount for editors who are considered as important members. From what I know, Sophos products are not expensive. If you have a license extension, you just need to contact the editor or partner to change the mode of licensing or extend the license to cover more people.""Intercept X for endpoints is around $35 per user per year. The server version is $95 per server per year.""I find the pricing to be a little bit expensive, although it is acceptable, for now."
