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

Pros
This solution blocks the brand new malware threats.In terms of the current global landscape, it is a great solution.Advanced level endpoint firewall, which helps to block unwanted and malicious traffic.What is great about ESET is the ERA Web Console through which we can pull various reports, monitor and administer all clients and servers, and the console is easy to use.A feature we like is setting the GUI of ESET Endpoint Security/ESET File Security to silent mode because some servers and clients can have performance issues.We use ESET, which is pretty much perfect for us. It is also absolutely simple and automatic once setup.We have not picked up a bug yet, because we use ESET, which is a tried and proven system.It is absolutely invisible once running.

It's pretty stable, and I don't have any problems with it.The return on investment was very reasonable. It was low cost and it functioned, so the return on investment was excellent.Remote connectivity is its most valuable feature.FortiClient has good signatures, good protection and, up until recently, it integrated really well with our firewall.

Cons
I would like them to use AI features to do preventative virus protection.ESET should consider giving it application control.They need to improve licensing for VMs. When ESET is uninstalled from a VM, the seat stays on the license management server. We have to manually delete the seat from that server because it doesn't know how to handle it. I contacted exclusive ESET support here in Croatia and they told me there is no solution for this yet.iOS compatibility for mobile security and parental control.

I haven't found that that solution does anything amazing.Everybody else is doing AI, machine learning, self-healing, next-generation features. It needs more next-generation features. Everybody else is doing AI, machine learning, self-healing, next-generation features. It needs more next-generation features.The initial setup was probably more complex. The configuration was somewhat unclear.

Pricing and Cost Advice
At first, we thought it was a bit expensive, but we negotiated a better price.The cost is a very reasonable. When compared with other products, the price is low (though not very low).ESET is perfect, if you can afford it.Pricing per month, for security services as apps in CEE pricing: up to €2 monthly is OK.

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.

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