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

Pros
"For the initial first level of support, we provide it from our side. If there's escalation required, we use Cisco tech for the AMP. And again, they are perfect. I mean, one of the best, compared to any other vendors.""The most valuable features of this solution are the IPS and the integration with ISE.""The simplicity of use is its most valuable feature. You can very clearly see things.""The stability of the solution is perfect. I believe it's the most stable solution on the market right now.""I am really satisfied with the technical support.""It is a very stable program.""The solution's integration capabilities are excellent. It's one of the best features.""It doesn't impact the devices. It is an agent-based solution, and we see no performance knock on cell phones. That was a big thing for us, especially in the mobile world. We don't see battery degradation like you do with other solutions which really drain the battery, as they're constantly doing things. That can shorten the useful life of a device."

"The most valuable feature of this solution is the management.""The most valuable feature is the antispam module, which comes in the bundle.""Technical support has been very good. They're quick to respond to any problems.""The most valuable features are the sandbox, mail scanning, sandboxing attachments, files, and that it responds to VPN porting.""This is a product at the top of its game. That is the reason we choose to support and sell it.""The potential threat protection feature is the most valuable. In the event that one of my computers is not on the network and gets a virus, ESET Endpoint Security quickly detects the malware, and in most cases, it removes the virus. It also has the ability to remotely shut down the computer. I like the remote control part the most.""The protection and device control features are the most valuable. I found its user interface and integration pretty good. It is very user friendly as compared to other products.""I would say that this solution has the best support team in this kind of Endpoint protection product."

"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.""I think the solution is highly scalable.""The most valuable feature is that it's easy to deploy. Deployment, configuration, and troubleshooting are very easy.""The configuration is the most valuable feature.""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 solution's most valuable feature is its integration capabilities. The processing is fast and the reporting is also very good.""The initial setup of this solution is easy."

Cons
"The solution needs more in-depth analytics.""In the next version of this solution, I would like to see the addition of local authentication.""The initial setup is a bit complex because you need to execute existing antiviruses or security software that you have on your device.""In the next release, I would for it to have back up abilities. I would like the ability to go back to a point in time to when my PC was uninfected and to the moment of when the infection happened.""The reporting and analytics areas of the solution need to be improved.""I would like more seamless integration.""The technical support is very slow.""I would recommend that the solution offer more availability in terms of the product portfolio and integration with third-party products."

"Everything has some kind of room for improvement.""If I were in an environment that required a large-scale deployment then I would choose another solution over ESET.""The solution should offer more security surrounding blacklisted websites.""The solution includes only Intrusion Detection and not IPS, which is an important feature that is missing in my version.""The product could have better integration with third-party products that would help extend functionality.""They could be more aggressive with malware.""The use of SQL Server can be improved. At times, there is a bit of challenge while linking it with the Javascript. ESET Endpoint Security requires modern technology or modern equipment on site. You will find it difficult to use ESET Endpoint Security with dual-core machines. If they can add the cloud management feature to their product, it will be much easier. If you look at this COVID situation that we are in right now, people are working from home, so you need to control the computers wherever you are. For example, if you are using any email setup and you are hosting it on your own, all the email traffic will be going through the same network. You need to protect all of your computers from the attack. It is best if you can do it remotely rather than having an IT person to come onsite to manage all computers and metrics etc, which isn't a smart way to do it.""A few times, we have had problems with downloading an agent. We had to try multiple times and multiple uploads."

More ESET Endpoint Security Cons »

"Initially, the support was very poor. It is getting better, but they should continue to improve this.""I would like to see an improvement in the web filter, because I think it can be more user-friendly.""The price could also use improvement.""The pricing could use improvement.""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 of the solution should be less expensive.""FortiClient is not communicating with the new version of the firewall."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The costs of 50 licenses of AMP for three years is around $9,360.""The price is very good.""The visibility that we have into the endpoint and the forensics that we're able to collect give us value for the price. This is not an overly expensive solution, considering all the things that are provided. You get great performance and value for the cost.""Whenever you are doing the licensing process, I would highly advise to look at what other Cisco solutions you have in your organization, then evaluate if an Enterprise Agreement is the best way to go. In our case, it was the best way to go. Since we had so many other Cisco products, we were able to tie those in. We were actually able to get several Cisco security solutions for less than if we had bought three or four Cisco security solutions independently or ad hoc.""In our case, it is a straightforward annual payment through our Enterprise Agreement.""Our company was very happy with the price of Cisco AMP. It was about a third of what we were paying for System Center Endpoint Protection.""There are a couple of different consumption models: Pay up front, or if you have an enterprise agreement, you can do a monthly thing. Check your licensing possibilities and see what's best for your organization.""The Enterprise Agreement is like an all-you-can-eat buffet of Cisco products. In that vein, it was very affordable."

"This solution is a good value for the money.""Currently, we are running on a three-year license. The pricing might be around $20,000. There aren't any costs above the standard licensing fee.""It is subjective. I don't think it is expensive. If you can have 10 user licenses for less than $100, I don't think it is expensive.""Its price is fair. If we compare it with any other retail product, it is a little harder to compete with.""The price could be lower, but it's comparable, as other solutions have a similar price for the same effect.""I think it's available for a pretty fair price. If you know how to use it, then it's a very fair price for what you get.""I pay about $100 a year, so it's really cheap. I'm sure that if I need something else beyond more technical support, I'll need to pay more.""The license is annually, and the price is low compared to competitors."

"An annual license costs about 1.5 to 3,000 US dollars. There are no additional costs.""The price is okay and competitive.""Fortinet requires you to buy a lot of product in order for you to have proper protection.""FortiClient is quite reasonably priced.""The pricing is reasonable.""The pricing is good because you get and end-to-end security solution in one package price.""The cost per port is very less as compared to the other technologies.""We are using the free version of this product."
