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."

"The scalability works well.""We haven't had any compatibility issues. It's quite stable and it's a good tool in preventing actual viruses or malware.""The most valuable aspect of the solution is that it also protects our smartphones. It's one of the reasons we use Trend Micro specifically.""The most valuable features are the behavior monitoring, behavior analysis, and web reputation service.""What I like the most is the customer pricing because it's a great value.""The solution integrates well with other Trend Micro products.""The solution gives users peace of mind that, form an endpoint perspective, they are protected once it is installed.""Your workstation doesn't slow down, unlike when you use Symantec, for example."

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 »

"It does not provide insights into what is being done.""The solution should improve its mobile management solution.""We were considering switching to SentinalOne because it has pre-detection, and Trend Micro does not offer this; it's something the solution should add.""The only drawback to this solution is that it needs different products for different types of clients, and it would be better to have a single agent for all of the products.""In the next release, I would like to see a combination of the different features from Apex One and OfficeScan in Trend Micro Smart, rather than as upgraded features.""The threat response could be a bit better.""The solution needs to improve the deployment so it aligns with the latest Microsoft patches and upgrades. It makes the deployment process lengthy and painful.""I've not explored all of the features up to now. I still need to see all of the features implemented first to be able to see if anything is missing. However, as of right now, it's working very well for us."

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 pay for the solution on a yearly basis. We pay approximately 100 Euros a year per user. There are no additional fees above this.""This solution provides good value for the price.""The licensing is on a yearly basis and I believe our organization paid about $2,000/year. However, it's been a while since I looked at the pricing and we no longer use the solution.""Our organization has paid licensing for three years, which averaged about $4.00 USD per user. We've been satisfied with the licensing. It's quite reasonable.""Its price is fine. Price-wise, it is competitive with any other vendor."
