Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Its most valuable features are its scalability and advanced threat protection for customers.""I am told that we get over 100 million emails a month. This filters them down and allows only somewhere about three million emails, which is a great help.""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 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."

"It performs quite well as a firewall protection provider.""The centralized management is a nice features. It gives us the leeway to deal with other things as protection is being carried on in the background. We do not have to keep on watching as long as we have the right updates. It also saves us time.""The blocking feature is the most valuable feature.""It helps to improve our security for our mobile and VMware infrastructure. The remote tasks are great.""We used to have a lot of phishing attacks and all these kind of things for end-users so we decided that we needed endpoint security. We evaluated some solutions and found that Kaspersky is the most appropriate in terms of endpoint security and the speed of the user machine. The encryption is a major factor from our end.""The signature update is done securely.""The advice I would give someone implementing this solution is that the management of the solution is very easy. You don't need a lot of people to manage the solution.""Using dashboards, it is very easy to manage."

Cons
"We would like to have an API integration with a SIEM solution, because as far as I know, it currently hasn't yet been released.""I would like them to add whatever makes filtering more advanced in scanning and blocking for malware in emails.""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."

"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."

"I would like to see better reporting.""If someone has the older version of the solution, and wants to install a newer version, they must remove all of the previous applications. Otherwise, there will be issues with the solution.""It needs more computer resources. They should have more anti-spam features.""The reports aren't so good. To make it a perfect ten they should improve the reports and web interface.""There should be some AI involved. We already have machine learning involved in recent releases but machine learning should be more enhanced in the upcoming versions.""There have been some performance issues. They provide good security, but this slows down the performance of machines' servers. The software is not updating as frequently as we need.""This solution needs improvement in the reporting section. Reporting in Kaspersky Endpoint is good but it's not that great. The platform needs to centralize reporting control.""I would like to see the inclusion of support for device management and device control."

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 licensing is fine, and it is well within reasonable rates.""It's a little more expensive compared to other competitors like Symantec.""For 300 nodes, we pay about 15,000 Malaysian Ringgit ($3,500 USD).""Kaspersky is priced well.""Licensing costs are on a yearly basis."
