Quotes From Members

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."

"I like the overall reports of this solution. They are crisp, and to the point.""It has an extremely low footprint, so it has got minimum impact on the user end points in terms of CPU and memory usage.""The most valuable feature is its threat analysis.""Scalability is good. We have had no issues with it.""The automatic alert feature is the most important feature of the solution.""Because it is security product and acts like an AIML smart product, not merely based on daily/weekly updates and signatures.""We have seen a reduction to the performance hit to our operating systems.""We are happy with CloudStrike's ease of use and touch notification."

"It is stable.""So easy to deploy and use that you really don't even need their technical support.""If you want something simple to work with, Sophos makes it very simple for you to use.""Intercept X is the most valuable feature in the solution. It's more or less pretty standard. The endpoint feature allows you to basically see what is happening, and stop a wide range of threats. It's been the most unique identifier for Sophos.""The protection that this solution offers us is strong.""The most valuable feature is the ability to centrally manage the total security environment, including the firewall.""With Sophos, the scanning of viruses and scanning of the disk is done silently in the background.""In terms of the Firewall, the EAP assist, the simple interface and the reporting features are quite good for clients. It's very easy to understand and to navigate the Dashboard."

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."

More Cisco AMP for Endpoints Cons »

"It is cloud-based, and this does make some weary of the data being held on the cloud. Privacy requirements must be taken into account.""The dashboard does not have the facility to export the reports in a PDF format, which I can quickly share with internal stakeholders.""I would like CrowdStrike to provide some correlation in the threat analysis, so we can visualize things better.""Whenever there is a feature release (upgrade) where we push to all the endpoints, it causes something to be blocked without us knowing.""The management of log aggregation is in need of improvement.""Unfortunately, native applications are not supported.""We have had to open a case with the technical support to get some issues and bugs resolved.""The GUI can use improvement, it's cloud-based so sometimes the interface can be a bit slow. The interface could use a little bit more speed."

More CrowdStrike Falcon Cons »

"Sometimes there are issues with the antivirus back logs.""Configuring notifications is lagging a bit behind the curve as the product should be able to direct exactly where any notification type is sent.""If you are not an IT expert, the solution is difficult to use.""Deployment and central management need to be improved.""In the next release, I would like to see the phishing attached included in the firewall.""I would like to have more logging features to help more deeply analyze traffic.""The solution is not easy to use in comparison to other endpoint security solutions.""The support could be improved. The response times are slow."

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 pricing will depend upon your volume of usage.""I would like them to further reduce the price, because it is quite pricey at the moment.""Purchasing the product through the AWS Marketplace is just a click away. Since we were using the on-premise version of the product, we continued on the cloud by purchasing it through the AWS Marketplace.""I do not have experience with the cost or licensing of the product.""The other administrator and I can log in to check the exact details of what happened, what was running, and what caused the detection. We know exactly what was happening on the end users PC and we can tell if it's something that we actually need or something that's malicious.""We are at about $60,000 per year.""This solution has a very competitive price.""Our company pays approximately US$ 65,000 annually for 900 machines."

"Willing to discount when you are switching from another product. Upgrading services will end up costing more, as expected.""The pricing for this solution is ok.""It may be possible to negotiate licensing cost based on volume.""We purchased a three-year license, which gave us a large discount.""Pricing could always be lower. It costs around $120 per seat per year."
