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.
It effectively catches unwanted stuff. It has saved our bacon over many years.
Easy to use security solution, helps to secure connected devices against viruses in the digital world.
Valuable features include good scanning, very light footprint and management console that the client can access and (just as important) in which I can see status of groups of computers (I am a consultant, IT role).
Low performance requirements.
It is very lightweight on the workstations, not slowing them down while still doing its job very well.
The ease of use of the centralized admin console is its best asset.
The Webroot cloud console is very powerful.
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.
The console spins up relatively slowly, and some of the configuration items are obscure (e.g., reporting back one time per day is a default setting) and need to be tweaked.
An updated UI would be nice, but is not hardly used.
Unified threat management (UTM) integration.
The reporting is the weakest part of the Webroot console. Frequently, I export to Excel to massage something into it to pass on to others.
It would be great if there was a feature which would allow you to scan an individual file on an endpoint user's computer.
We need more control over when upgrades to the app are rolled out.
It needs to improve the problems with the faster connection, and have a huge reduction in false positives.
Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
If you purchase for clients, then you are the managing billing entity. It's better to either get a monthly subscription check from your clients, or to prepay for the year (so as to not keep cash in reserve to pay the bill each month) IMHO.
Work on a price tier plan.
We evaluate other options using multiple choices, best value, management and functionality.
Get a trial, then a multi-year license.
Our strategy was to overestimate the complexity and cost. It turned out that Webroot's assurance was justified.
