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.

The most valuable feature is the supervisory side of it where we can watch the throughputs, and even the loading of the device, to see how much traffic is happening.We most value the price and interface quality with Sophos Intercept X. We focus on solution quality.We use Sophos Intercept X for Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) in our organization.It is easy to change the size of its capabilities, i.e. to expand processes or scale the size of users.

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.

In terms of the site-to-site VPN elements, they tend to concentrate. It's quite simple when there are Meraki devices at both ends of the VPN but if there is another user at one end, on another device, it can be a bit tricky. So they could really simplify that process a bit.Sophos needs to create a YouTube channel with educational material for technicians or engineers.They should work on the logs and events. Sophos Intercept X needs to increase the interface test so that it can export to a live event.Technical support can be improved. There could be shared support, i.e. where someone in Egypt can respond.

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.

We renew the license for one year at $10,000.
