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.The signature update is done securely.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.It helps to improve our security for our mobile and VMware infrastructure. The remote tasks are great.The blocking feature is the most valuable feature.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.It performs quite well as a firewall protection provider.We have gained advanced threat protection without investing more into that area.

Cons
FortiClient is not communicating with the new version of the firewall.The pricing of the solution should be less expensive.Technical support is awful. Their online response time is not prompt. They should not respond after four or five days. Their support guys are not competent enough. Small issues are taking time.The memory check needs to be improved, giving better visibility into the run-time memory.The pricing could use improvement.The price could also use improvement.I would like to see an improvement in the web filter, because I think it can be more user-friendly.Initially, the support was very poor. It is getting better, but they should continue to improve this.

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.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.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.The reports aren't so good. To make it a perfect ten they should improve the reports and web interface.It needs more computer resources. They should have more anti-spam features.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.I would like to see better reporting.It's does not have the architecture or structure to scale up.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The price is okay and competitive.Fortinet requires you to buy a lot of product in order for you to have proper protection.An annual license costs about 1.5 to 3,000 US dollars. There are no additional costs.Anyone can download this product for free, but you have to have a FortiGate gateway that you are connecting to.Licensing was free up to ten users and after that, it was pretty reasonable.

It's a little more expensive compared to other competitors like Symantec.The licensing is fine, and it is well within reasonable rates.It is a cost-effective product.I received a very good deal with Kaspersky.It is a cost-effective endpoint security service.It is quite standard, because we use the volume licensing.The licensing is based per agent. You can get discounts if you have more agents.Pricing is very competitive and licensing is very much ethical.
