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

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.

The product is less costly when compared to other solutions, and this is a good solid solution for what we have paid.It is user-friendly.It has plugins development options, which are great.Patch Management for a variety of operating systems makes it valuable as we can rely on a single tool for obtaining patch compliance of the entire compute infrastructure.Patch management, because it very much improved the patch compliance and has the capability to manage Windows and non-Windows clients.Vulnerability scanning and patch automation.The architecture for patching and the 100% correct reporting makes BigFix stand apart from other solutions.Ability to run custom reports and custom relevance.

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.

Sometimes there is a lag time for our users.The product is quite buggy and complicated to use.Relay selection and availability needs improvement as an incorrect relay selected can cause network chokes.Needs to improve Network Access Protection (NAP) technologies to prevent computers with vulnerabilities from gaining access to networks.There is no support for patch management on SLES on IBM pSeries (only the Intel platform is supported).The new EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) feature, Detect, is new and still needs a few updates.We need a much better multi-tenant option.IBM has not focused on the Web Reports capabilities.

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.

The product is less costly when compared to other solutions, and this is a good solid solution for what we have paid.I would stay with the Managed Virtual Server license model, which is a 1-to-1 license per OS whether it is virtual or physical.When purchasing, buying with other IBM tools provided us with a very good discount in pricing.I can estimate the reduced cost of servers maintenance to approximatively $500,000.
