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

Pros
The endpoint protection is the solution's most valuable feature.The solution has exchange protection. It has a content control, device control, a firewall, and anti-malware as well. They are all quite valuable features for us.I like the simplicity of this solution and the fact that it saves us time. The deployment was really straightforward and useful and I am impressed by the anti-virus endpoint detection and response offered by this solution.

The most valuable feature is that we can use the solution right out of the box without too much configuration.The most valuable features are that it's easy to use and the updates are very simple.Defender is integrated into the operating system. It's integrated with everything. You don't have to spend time analyzing what you have to do to be sure that the integration is okay between the security tool and all the other apps. This, from my point of view, is the main advantage.The most valuable feature of this solution is that it's easy to deploy Microsoft Windows. The performance is good and the management tools are very good. We are quite happy with the solution.I like the real-time protection features. Windows Defender will detect if there's a threat like a Trojan or something like that but Kaspersky lets it run normally.This is a very go, proactive solution to threat protection using advanced analysis.It's really stable. I've used a lot of stuff, a lot of products, like ESET and Kaspersky. None of them are comparable with this one. This one is much better.Within its class I think, it has a high and decent detection rate.

Cons
The database needs improvement. It needs to be updated quite a bit.There needs to be better integration with the environment. Especially, for the active directory and also for keeping up with the changes from Microsoft. We use a lot of Microsoft OS. I have noted that sometimes they lag behind Microsoft updates. For example, when with Windows 10. I had some issues with deploying to Windows 10 because the solution was behind in updating their own services to match the Microsoft release.There are blurred lines between anti-virus and endpoint detection so I would say it can be confusing when you are considering buying this program. I would like to see that being explained better to the customer.

There's scanning going on that occasionally topples the memory, causing everything to freeze. This should be fixed.I would like to be able to set up any kind of protection I want in the firewall, any IP address or any number.The solution needs to improve its ransomware. It's not so good. It could also use some general performance optimization for the computers the solution operates on, to ensure it does not slow down the devices.The management console could be better.The system can always be simplified and have a better integration check. More detailed reports would be good. When it does the integrated check, it just shows if the system is okay but I want to know what happened.Updates are not coming out of preview quickly enough and it is holding back on the development of the product.The end-user also cannot do some advanced actions on it. It's a little bit complicated for our end-user, so it needs to be simplified.There's a lot of manual effort involved to configure what we need.
