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

Pros
The Remote Administrator is the most valuable feature that ESET offers for us. Centralized management of our ESET environment is what I like about the Remote Administrator.

The most valuable feature is that it works in the background so that the end-users are not aware of what is happening on the laptop.This product is a solid, all-in-one solution for enterprise data management.The most valuable features are the messaging features and shared folders.We can extend it to all of the critical endpoints and the servers, and we can ensure the confidentiality of the data.Their cloud features such as Cloud Endpoint security, ransomware modules, malware, and other modules are very effective.The encryption feature is very good.We use it for protecting accounts, which is its most valuable feature.It has reduced the number of incidents related to the loss of information.

Cons
I would like more robust reporting as part of the Remote Administrator.

I do not find the environment to be very user-friendly.The instability of the company and lack of presence in the Middle East is affecting product use.The program's disk encryption is not very friendly with Microsoft OS updates. We have a problem with updates failing unless we use a time-consuming work-around.If for example, a user forgets the endpoint key, they cannot access their data. We need a support team that is a single point of contact for the IT entity to be trained and to have documentation for troubleshooting and managing the solution.I think that they should improve the on-premises version to include the manageability and simplicity that is available on the cloud.The agent can be improved on the solution. Right now, we have an Endpoint Protection agent as well as an encryption agent and another for the DLVs and other services. We would prefer a single agent for the entire product.We would like some advanced security protection features.It's a bit difficult to get good support. Their response times are really bad.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Instead of installing ESET on each machine at each location, we just do it remotely. This has been a time saver for us.The National University System dedicates 500 of their 5000 licenses to us, which is $14/yr per device. Most companies are paying $99 or $120 per device a year.

The cost of this solution is a little on the higher side.The pricing is fair but there is variability in our area that needs to be addressed.Depending on how many modules you will use (up to five) the licensing will be more expensive.They have two solutions for encryption including Symantec Endpoint Encryption and PGP Endpoint Encryption. With one PGP license, you can deploy the two solutions. The PGP license gives you two options.The licensing costs yearly are $5000.It can be expensive. However, if you plan to scale or are at a large enterprise company, this product could be what you need.
