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

Pros
Cylance protection is the solution’s most valuable feature. Every aspect of the solution is great, however. It’s why I sell it. Everything is there.On the management side, we liked the way it displays things.The solution is extremely scalable. It's got the hybrid functionality, it's got the system functionality and cloud functionality as well.The solution is stable.The solution is pretty easy to scale.It handles situations that the other threat management tools wouldn't find. It has worked well covering the weaker sides of the other products that we're integrating.​Centralized dashboard online which can be used for managing a huge product.Even if an endpoint loses connection to the Internet, I know that endpoint is protected against 99.99% of the threats in the wild today.

We have seen a decrease of approximately ninety percent in the number of events.The most valuable feature is its ability to customize for different groups.This solution helps us by providing central management of anti-malware and anti-exploit functionality.It gets the job done, and they are consistently updating it monthly.It comprehensively finds and removes malicious software.It allows us to have better knowledge of the way people use the tool and how we can improve their workflows.We don't have to spend any time remediating bad things happening: Not viruses nor ransomware.

Cons
The solution is lacking a mobile app. It would be great to have a feature for mobile phones. That's what's missing right now.It should provide more details about the events that they have detected.I would say one thing that they might need to bring in is protection for mobile devices.The solution needs better dashboards that are easier to use.The security scripting needs improvement. It needs deeper security for scripting.I would like to see a better UI in terms of sifting through more specific data and providing analytics. A little bit more would be nice.​Work on the math model. We are catching a lot of false positives, which gets to be a pain at the start of a deployment.The management console needs a little maturity in how it presents data and allows the administrator to drill down or search across systems.

The product update capability needs to be improved.We experience a lot of false positives.This solution reports far too many false positives!They should make it faster, less taxing on the processor.There is room for improvement in the way it is deployed, in terms of being able to distribute it. Right now we have to get our hands on a machine to deploy it. It would be nice if there was an easier system.I would like to see integration with other vendors going forward.Every once in a while, it gets clobbered by updates from other places. I don't think this should happen.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We would just add more if there are new users, but right now you just need one license for per user.Our licensing cost for the solution is around $4,000 for six months. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.​Shop around for sure and be assured the price you pay will be close to other solutions available, but even at a slight mark-up from the other solutions, you are getting real endpoint protection versus nothing more than a cheap security blanket that might keep you warm at night.Do not get hung up on price. You pay for what you get and expensive will hurt one time, where cheap will hurt forever, especially if you fall victim to a ransom attack, etc.​The initial end-point cost may seem a little high (~$55/device/year) but when you look at the total peace of mind that the solution provides, with no reboots for updates, and negligible performance impact, it is well worth it.
