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

Pros
The most important feature we've found is the Enscripts. That is one powerful feature that I, personally, love to use.It indexes much faster, and is more reflexive because of the Enscripts.Data Recovery: Its ability to repair damaged partitions and uncover hidden partitions from within the tool, and allow further analysis.The technical support is excellent.I like the processing feature on the product because it does everything at once, i.e, indexing, recovery, keyword searches, etc.It speeds up the process, so I can meet my deadlines.

The most valuable feature is that we can use the solution right out of the box without too much configuration.The most valuable features are that it's easy to use and the updates are very simple.Defender is integrated into the operating system. It's integrated with everything. You don't have to spend time analyzing what you have to do to be sure that the integration is okay between the security tool and all the other apps. This, from my point of view, is the main advantage.The most valuable feature of this solution is that it's easy to deploy Microsoft Windows. The performance is good and the management tools are very good. We are quite happy with the solution.I like the real-time protection features. Windows Defender will detect if there's a threat like a Trojan or something like that but Kaspersky lets it run normally.This is a very go, proactive solution to threat protection using advanced analysis.It's really stable. I've used a lot of stuff, a lot of products, like ESET and Kaspersky. None of them are comparable with this one. This one is much better.Within its class I think, it has a high and decent detection rate.

Cons
We have come across problems with the end-case. We could not find an email discovery type of module and there was not flexibility with the email.In the past, incident response time for tech support was slow.There were minor UI bugs.I would like to see a capability to ingest and absorb more data. That would be really good. It currently is lacking this function.Ease of use and learning curve need improvement.​Sometimes the application can take more time to complete the image processing or fail at the end of the process.​

There's scanning going on that occasionally topples the memory, causing everything to freeze. This should be fixed.I would like to be able to set up any kind of protection I want in the firewall, any IP address or any number.The solution needs to improve its ransomware. It's not so good. It could also use some general performance optimization for the computers the solution operates on, to ensure it does not slow down the devices.The management console could be better.The system can always be simplified and have a better integration check. More detailed reports would be good. When it does the integrated check, it just shows if the system is okay but I want to know what happened.Updates are not coming out of preview quickly enough and it is holding back on the development of the product.The end-user also cannot do some advanced actions on it. It's a little bit complicated for our end-user, so it needs to be simplified.There's a lot of manual effort involved to configure what we need.
