Find out what your peers are saying about Malwarebytes vs. Palo Alto Networks Traps and other solutions. Updated: June 2019.
345,805 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It gets the job done, and they are consistently updating it monthly.
It comprehensively finds and removes malicious software.
It allows us to have better knowledge of the way people use the tool and how we can improve their workflows.
We don't have to spend any time remediating bad things happening: Not viruses nor ransomware.
The one feature of Palo Alto Networks Traps that our organization finds most valuable is the App ID service.
It blocks malicious files. It prevents attacks. It doesn't require many updates, it's a very light application.
The most valuable features are the fact that it was running in the background and it would intercept any weird stuff, and the fact that it would send things directly to the cloud for sandboxing. It's quite practical.
After deploying Traps, we saw the performance of the network improve by 65 to 70 percent.
Traps is quite a stable product. Once it was properly deployed and configured, you have nothing to be worried about.
If the user leaves our premises or network, Palo Alto Traps will still be on that endpoint and will still apply our policies.
The multi-layered approach to the product gives you confidence that it will stop exploits, ransomware, worms, or viruses from compromising endpoints, essentially providing peace of mind.
We've had a significant increase in blocking with a decrease in false positives, because it's looking at how the files work, not just a list of files that it's been told to look for.
They should make it faster, less taxing on the processor.
There is room for improvement in the way it is deployed, in terms of being able to distribute it. Right now we have to get our hands on a machine to deploy it. It would be nice if there was an easier system.
I would like to see integration with other vendors going forward.
Every once in a while, it gets clobbered by updates from other places. I don't think this should happen.
It automatically detects security issues. It should be able to protect our network devices while operating autonomously.
Managing the product should be easier.
There are some false positives. What our guys would have liked is that it would have been easier to manipulate as soon as they found a false positive that they knew was a false positive. How to do so was not obvious. Some people complained about it. The interface, the ESM, is not user-friendly.
There are some default policies which sometimes affect our applications and cause them to run around. In the hotel industry, we use a different type of data versus Oracle and SQL. By default, there are some policies which stop us from running properly. Because of this, the support level is also not that strong. We have to wait to get a results.
Traps doesn't work with McAfee. You need to remove McAfee to install Traps. This is very common, and its nothing that should be an issue. Some antivirus engines recognize Traps as an threat component, so maybe they need to shake hands somewhere.
Previously, the endpoint would leave the environment, not being on our VPN, essentially unable to interact with the server to upload files. It was unable to retrieve new file verdicts. It was using a thing called "local analysis" to determine if something was a malicious file or not. There was no dynamic analysis.
They have the worst support, as a company, that I have ever worked with, as they are difficult to get a hold of and keep on the phone. They don't know what they are talking about when you get them on the phone. They don't like to respond to messages when you send them to them. They like to "research problems" for weeks on end, then pass you off to somebody else.
There is a severe gap in functionality between Windows, Linux, and Mac versions. For example all folder restriction settings are Windows only. Traps 5.0+ does not have SAML / LDAP integration.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Yearly, it is around $50 per client.
The price was fine.
When we first bought it, it was a bit expensive, but it was worth it. The licensing was straightforward.
I did PoCs on products called Cylance and CrowdStrike. Although, I consider these products and they were also good, when it come to cost and budgetary factors, Traps has been proven to be better than the other two products. It is quite cost-effective and delivers all the entire solution which we require.
It is cost-effective compared to similar solutions. It fits for the small businesses through to the big businesses.
The return on investment is from the user side because we have seen the performance of it increase the delivery time of the product if we are using too many web-based and on-premise applications. In indirect ways, we saw the return of investment in terms of performance and user satisfaction increase.
It is "expensive" and flexible.
Traps pays for itself within the first 16 months of a three-year subscription. This is attributed to OPEX savings, as security teams spent less time trying to identify and isolate malware for analysis as a result of a reduction in malware incidents, false positives, and breach avoidance.
We didn't have to pay any additional fee for the cloud instance. It just came with the renewal, which was nice.
