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 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 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.

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.
