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

Pros
It's just a single agent that has everything in it... With the EDR solutions, you have to install it, then you have another service history installed, and you have behavioral analytics, etc. With this, everything is in a single small "box," a small agent that has pretty much got everything.It has the lowest false-positive ratio that I have come across. I have only had one which was a legitimate file that I had to whitelist. It was for one of the applications I was trying to install and integrate. But the false positive ratio is very low.Instead of having features like rollback and after-event actionable stuff, the whole premise and the context of the solution is to actually prevent these malicious attacks from happening to begin with.... The ability to prevent threats is the most appealing aspect. It absolutely, 100 percent helps with real-time prevention of unknown malware. That's the strength of the product.It has a very low false-positive ratio. That is important because it means we're not wasting time... We're able to run that entire 20,000-endpoint base with just a handful of engineers.The most valuable features are the static/dynamic analyses. Deep Instinct's predictive model has very high accuracy and provides threat information for unknown malware, such as malware classification, static analysis information, and sandbox information.Deep Instinct complements the solutions we already have. You don't need to rip and replace any antivirus or endpoint that you have. It's easy to use and it's easy to have it side-by-side with other solutions. That makes it really easy to have an additional level of protection, rather than to hassle with doing solution migration.The CPU consumption is low compared to what I have been using in my current environment, which is Sophos. The footprint is a lot smaller, about a quarter of Sophos. It is very small.Its false positives are very low, because the behavior analysis engine double checks them.

The initial setup of this solution is easy.The solution's most valuable feature is its integration capabilities. The processing is fast and the reporting is also very good.It is very easy and useful. A normal user with basic information can easily connect to any environment.From an application perspective, this solution is stable.The configuration is the most valuable feature.The most valuable feature is that it's easy to deploy. Deployment, configuration, and troubleshooting are very easy.I think the solution is highly scalable.The solution is very scalable. It just depends on the number of licenses an organization has. The enterprise management console is related to the number of clients, and the client interface itself is free to download.

Cons
If they can bring some additional, complementary solutions, like network scanning and the like, that will help. If they had some sort of a firewall which could help detect DDoS attacks and other things, it would be an improvementIt would be nice if there were options where, if I have to do SIEM integration, I could do so from the UI: Just pick and choose what SIEM solutions the customers use and have options to have out-of-the-box connection facility.I would love to see a really exceptional, outstanding level of reporting. I know that's like asking for a unicorn to leap out of the sky with any of these products... When everything works, clients began to wonder: "Everything's fine. Why do we need you?" That's where the reporting capabilities would allow us to really demonstrate: "Hey, here's what's actually going on, Mr. Customer."The Management Console is not localized.I would like to see improvement in the user interface so that the user has more control. For example, it would be good if a user could change their grouping if they want to be part of another group. Or if I want to right-click and scan a specific file that I just imported, that would be helpful. Sometimes you just want to do an extra scan to make sure you're safe.I am looking forward to them adding Linux in Q1 or Q2 of 2019, as this is often requested by my partners and customers. Currently, Deep Instinct only has Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS.

FortiClient is not communicating with the new version of the firewall.The pricing of the solution should be less expensive.Technical support is awful. Their online response time is not prompt. They should not respond after four or five days. Their support guys are not competent enough. Small issues are taking time.The memory check needs to be improved, giving better visibility into the run-time memory.The pricing could use improvement.The price could also use improvement.I would like to see an improvement in the web filter, because I think it can be more user-friendly.Initially, the support was very poor. It is getting better, but they should continue to improve this.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing and licensing are very straightforward. It's two SKUs, one is for the console and the other is for the client.One thing about their licensing program that I like is that just one covers the server as well as on the endpoint as well as mobile devices. There is no complexity in calculating how many SKUs I need for mobile, for laptop, for desktop, and for servers. It's very simple and that makes it much easier to budget.In comparison to the other products out there, it's exceptionally competitively priced. When you consider the lower administrative overhead that it facilitates, it's an absolute value.The pricing is a little bit expensive but we are satisfied with DI's performance.If I include the false positive rate and the detection rate in the comparison, Deep Instinct is worth its price.

The price is okay and competitive.Fortinet requires you to buy a lot of product in order for you to have proper protection.An annual license costs about 1.5 to 3,000 US dollars. There are no additional costs.Anyone can download this product for free, but you have to have a FortiGate gateway that you are connecting to.Licensing was free up to ten users and after that, it was pretty reasonable.

Overview

Deep Instinct provides comprehensive defense that is designed to protect against the most evasive unknown malware in real- time, across an organization’s endpoints, servers, and mobile devices. Leveraging deep learning’s capabilities of identifying malware from any data source results in total protection: Any threat. Anywhere. Any time.

Securing your endpoints against sophisticated threats on a myriad of devices can be very challenging:

  • Managing separate endpoint features is complex and time-consuming.
  • Disparate security products don't share intelligence, resulting in slow threat response.
  • Lack of InfoSec expertise to effectively administer endpoint security can let threats slip through your defenses.
