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."

"Remote connectivity is its most valuable feature.""The return on investment was very reasonable. It was low cost and it functioned, so the return on investment was excellent.""It's pretty stable, and I don't have any problems with it.""The solution is very scalable. It just depends on the number of licenses an organization has. The enterprise management console is related to the number of clients, and the client interface itself is free to download.""I think the solution is highly scalable.""The most valuable feature is that it's easy to deploy. Deployment, configuration, and troubleshooting are very easy.""The configuration is the most valuable feature.""It is very easy and useful. A normal user with basic information can easily connect to any environment."

In enables more visibility on our network.""It has improved my organization because it helps with visibility, in terms of security. We can see the actual attack and can contain it. The antivirus can detect that.""The loss prevention feature would be the most valuable.""Anyone can use it, the protection is good, and they have all of the features."

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."

"The initial setup was probably more complex. The configuration was somewhat unclear.""Everybody else is doing AI, machine learning, self-healing, next-generation features. It needs more next-generation features. Everybody else is doing AI, machine learning, self-healing, next-generation features. It needs more next-generation features.""I haven't found that that solution does anything amazing.""Initially, the support was very poor. It is getting better, but they should continue to improve this.""I would like to see an improvement in the web filter, because I think it can be more user-friendly.""The price could also use improvement.""The pricing could use improvement.""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."

More Fortinet FortiClient Cons »

"Although they have increased the complexity, it has affected the scanning speed.""Tech support is not as helpful as they were in the past.""Tech support is not as helpful as they were in the past.""One of the drawbacks is that it is not 100% secure.""The DAC (Dynamic Application Containment) component of this product needs improvement.""The endpoint has room for improvement because it's restrictive, it's very sensitive. Sometimes it can delete something that you need and so sometimes you have to disable the antivirus.""We have a lot of problems with the user experience and it's difficult to implement. MacAfee's better than the ancient anti-virus solutions but it's a little slow to resolve. Many files with malware were destroyed through the network, and MacAfee doesn't detect anything.""Its pricing needs to be improved."

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."

"Licensing was free up to ten users and after that, it was pretty reasonable.""Anyone can download this product for free, but you have to have a FortiGate gateway that you are connecting to.""An annual license costs about 1.5 to 3,000 US dollars. There are no additional costs.""The price is okay and competitive.""Fortinet requires you to buy a lot of product in order for you to have proper protection.""FortiClient is quite reasonably priced.""The pricing is reasonable.""The pricing is good because you get and end-to-end security solution in one package price."

"No comment.""The pricing is comparable to other solutions on the market.""This product is costly.""It's fairly priced compared to other products on the market.""Pricing is reasonable and runs at a cost per user per year."

AMP key features include the following: Global threat intelligence to proactively defend against known and emerging threats, Advanced sandboxing that performs automated static and dynamic analysis of files against more than 700 behavioral indicators, Point-in-time malware detection and blocking in real time and Continuous analysis and retrospective security regardless of the file's disposition and Continuous analysis and retrospective security.

Securing your endpoints against sophisticated threats on a myriad of devices can be very challenging:

  • Managing separate endpoint features is complex and time-consuming.
  • Disparate security products don't share intelligence, resulting in slow threat response.
  • Lack of InfoSec expertise to effectively administer endpoint security can let threats slip through your defenses.

McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection allows you to protect all of your devices with intelligent, collaborative security, in one easy-to-manage, integrated solution. Our integrated endpoint security framework helps remove redundancies, enables fast, proven performance and offers an architecture to align both current and future security investments.
