448,076 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The technical support is really terrific."
"In Digital Guardian, they have the cloud correlation servers that give you visibility work like EBR and the correlation server works very well for security analysis."
"It can scale from 100 to 10,000. There's no problem with the scalability."
"The feature we call desktop recording is the most valuable aspect of the solution. Not only can we collect data from the user's usage, but we also capture his screenshots when he is trying to steal the data."
"The patch management is very easy, as it can be done automatically or added to a schedule."
"Provides good vulnerability assessment."
"It shows us the risky sign-ins, and if a user's password has been compromised."
"What I like most is the protection against phishing emails and anti-spam."
"I would like to see the workflow, to get all the rules and policies set up, be less complicated."
"The room for improvement with Digital Guardian is that it will be better with the Linux agent because it is the only DLP solution for Linux workstations. It still needs to upgrade the agents to the latest version for the Linux kernel."
"There are a lot of issues with the current version of the Endpoint agent. It's not stable, it's resource-consuming, and there are some performance issues. If they could improve the stability of the agent it would be great."
"Some features on Mac and Linux are not complete currently. For example, some device control features haven't been transferred over to the other systems. If they could have their Windows features also available on Mac and Linux, that would be perfect. Some of our customers have a Mac environment for their RD environment. Having the solution fully capable of handling everything in a Mac environment is crucial."
"I would like to see better integration with their other security products to give better visibility from a higher level."
"The GUI is very complex and could be more user friendly."
"I am not sure if I will be using this product in the future because of the price."
"If they integrate with the EDR then it will benefit this solution."
"The scanning is slow when it is working with incoming emails."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"Digital Guardian has both, subscription and perpetual licenses, but I think when everything (all technologies) will go to the cloud they will only offer subscriptions."
"If I compare Digital Guardian with Symantec, the license cost is lower, but McAfee can be cheaper than Digital Guardian. It depends on how many licenses you plan to buy and how big the project is. The cost is not so high as Symantec, but not as cheap as McAfee. They can easily sell the solution for price."
"If you don't purchase the advanced threat protection then there is no additional charge."
"Microsoft Defender ATP is expensive."
"When compared with other vendors, the pricing is very high."
"We sell this product as part of Office 365 and it is not expensive."
