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

Pros
This solution has made the lives of the IT staff much easier, compared to the previous one.We are now able to find the root cause analysis on any threat. We can figure out where the issue came in versus just dealing with where it is at the moment.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.Because it is security product and acts like an AIML smart product, not merely based on daily/weekly updates and signatures.The automatic alert feature is the most important feature of the solution.The most valuable feature is its threat analysis.Scalability is good. We have had no issues with it.

The central management of the anti-virus features for our end user is a very valuable aspect of the solutions.Sophos EPP Suite has the capability to stop infections from spreading around the internal network even after the problems have infiltrated it.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.With Sophos, the scanning of viruses and scanning of the disk is done silently in the background.The most valuable feature is the ability to centrally manage the total security environment, including the firewall.The protection that this solution offers us is strong.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.If you want something simple to work with, Sophos makes it very simple for you to use.

Cons
I would like to see the machine learning feature enhanced.As the company has grown, the technical support has felt less personal.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.We have had to open a case with the technical support to get some issues and bugs resolved.Unfortunately, native applications are not supported.The management of log aggregation is in need of improvement.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 console need improvement.Sophos does not currently inform users of potential compatability issues with Windows updates.The support could be improved. The response times are slow.The solution is not easy to use in comparison to other endpoint security solutions.I would like to have more logging features to help more deeply analyze traffic.In the next release, I would like to see the phishing attached included in the firewall.Deployment and central management need to be improved.If you are not an IT expert, the solution is difficult to use.

Pricing and Cost Advice
This solution has a very competitive price.We are at about $60,000 per year.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.I do not have experience with the cost or licensing of the product.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.The pricing will depend upon your volume of usage.

It may be possible to negotiate licensing cost based on volume.The pricing for this solution is ok.Willing to discount when you are switching from another product. Upgrading services will end up costing more, as expected.
