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

Pros
The stability of the solution is perfect. I believe it's the most stable solution on the market right now.The simplicity of use is its most valuable feature. You can very clearly see things.The most valuable features of this solution are the IPS and the integration with ISE.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.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.Its most valuable features are its scalability and advanced threat protection for customers.Real-time threat prevention using sandboxing, file trajectory, and retrospective security.

The most valuable feature is the antispam module, which comes in the bundle.The most valuable feature of this solution is the management.This solution blocks the brand new malware threats.In terms of the current global landscape, it is a great solution.Advanced level endpoint firewall, which helps to block unwanted and malicious traffic.What is great about ESET is the ERA Web Console through which we can pull various reports, monitor and administer all clients and servers, and the console is easy to use.A feature we like is setting the GUI of ESET Endpoint Security/ESET File Security to silent mode because some servers and clients can have performance issues.We use ESET, which is pretty much perfect for us. It is also absolutely simple and automatic once setup.

Cons
The reporting and analytics areas of the solution need to be improved.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.In the next version of this solution, I would like to see the addition of local authentication.The solution needs more in-depth analytics.I would like them to add whatever makes filtering more advanced in scanning and blocking for malware in emails.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.It does not include encryption and decryption of local file shares.

If I were in an environment that required a large-scale deployment then I would choose another solution over ESET.Everything has some kind of room for improvement.I would like them to use AI features to do preventative virus protection.ESET should consider giving it application control.They need to improve licensing for VMs. When ESET is uninstalled from a VM, the seat stays on the license management server. We have to manually delete the seat from that server because it doesn't know how to handle it. I contacted exclusive ESET support here in Croatia and they told me there is no solution for this yet.

This solution is a good value for the money.At first, we thought it was a bit expensive, but we negotiated a better price.The cost is a very reasonable. When compared with other products, the price is low (though not very low).ESET is perfect, if you can afford it.
