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

Pros
The most valuable feature is the antispam module, which comes in the bundle.The most valuable feature of this solution is the management.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.

The most valuable feature is the ability to centrally manage the total security environment, including the firewall.The protection that this solution offers us is strong.Intercept X is the most valuable feature in the solution. It's more or less pretty standard. The endpoint feature allows you to basically see what is happening, and stop a wide range of threats. It's been the most unique identifier for Sophos.If you want something simple to work with, Sophos makes it very simple for you to use.So easy to deploy and use that you really don't even need their technical support.It is stable.

Cons
If I were in an environment that required a large-scale deployment then I would choose another solution over ESET.Everything has some kind of room for improvement.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.

I would like to have more logging features to help more deeply analyze traffic.In the next release, I would like to see the phishing attached included in the firewall.Deployment and central management need to be improved.If you are not an IT expert, the solution is difficult to use.Configuring notifications is lagging a bit behind the curve as the product should be able to direct exactly where any notification type is sent.Sometimes there are issues with the antivirus back logs.

Pricing and Cost Advice
This solution is a good value for the money.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.

The pricing for this solution is ok.Willing to discount when you are switching from another product. Upgrading services will end up costing more, as expected.
