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

Pros
Has good RAM capacity for the power I needCylance is not a signature-based protection solution and instead works proactively using AI and ML models to patrol for malicious behavior.Two or three years ago when the WannaCry virus struck, the people that were on Cylance were the ones that weren't affected.It is a bit early in our evaluation process to give proper feedback, although so far, the overall feedback is good.The most valuable feature is the ability to respond to zero-day and unknown threats.The Application Guard and ByteGuard are useful features.The solution is extremely scalable. It's got the hybrid functionality, it's got the system functionality and cloud functionality as well.On the management side, we liked the way it displays things.

The forensics within the solution are quite good. The ransomware mitigation is also impressive.The most valuable features are the range and restriction.After that, the client switched to Sophos to get the protection they lacked. It either works or it doesn’t and Sophos works.All of the features are very important for anyone who is supporting a large number of computers.It is a practically maintenance free intelligent system that independently protects environments from malicious attacks.A valuable feature offered by Sophos is called Naked Security, and it entails the control managed by the firewall on the site regarding the desktop client interfacing with our cloud client.The most valuable feature is the supervisory side of it where we can watch the throughputs, and even the loading of the device, to see how much traffic is happening.We most value the price and interface quality with Sophos Intercept X. We focus on solution quality.

Cons
It should have better support for Windows and Mac.Too many false positives are reported.I would like to see them fix the alerting system so that the endpoint reporting is a bit more streamlined.The detection component is something that they have to work on.Our customers would like to see more automation with respect to how threats are handled once they have been detected.The OPTICS component could be made more user-friendly with respect to giving people more information.I would say one thing that they might need to bring in is protection for mobile devices.It should provide more details about the events that they have detected.

To be a perfect product, the price would have to be a bit better.They might want to offer an MSP model for licensing, to offer the solution as a software as a service.The price of this solution can be improved.The product defends very well on its own but could possibly use enhancement in giving users more controls.The initial setup was not very user-friendly.In terms of the site-to-site VPN elements, they tend to concentrate. It's quite simple when there are Meraki devices at both ends of the VPN but if there is another user at one end, on another device, it can be a bit tricky. So they could really simplify that process a bit.Sophos needs to create a YouTube channel with educational material for technicians or engineers.They should work on the logs and events. Sophos Intercept X needs to increase the interface test so that it can export to a live event.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We pay for the number of endpoints we have and that is about it. On a monthly basis, the licensing cost is $55 per user.The monthly fee is $55 USD per user.I think that the price we are paying is good for what it is.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.
