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."

"Anyone can use it, the protection is good, and they have all of the features.""The most valuable features are the adaptive tech on McAfee.""McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection is stable. We don't have any bugs being reported.""It has a very simple like multi-tenancy option and scalability is outstanding.""The new central console is better than the earlier one.""The initial setup is straightforward, not complex.""When Intel acquired McAfee they worked on the protocol so that all vendors can work on the same platform. It's a very big improvement in McAfee. All McAfee products talk to each other. Other vendor's products can join this platform as well so it makes it more powerful on the enterprise side for McAfee.""The solution is broken down into different components from the portals. Web filtering, which is an added feature has been great for us."

"So easy to deploy and use that you really don't even need their technical support.""If you want something simple to work with, Sophos makes it very simple for you to use.""Intercept X is the most valuable feature in the solution. It's more or less pretty standard. The endpoint feature allows you to basically see what is happening, and stop a wide range of threats. It's been the most unique identifier for Sophos.""The protection that this solution offers us is strong.""The most valuable feature is the ability to centrally manage the total security environment, including the firewall.""With Sophos, the scanning of viruses and scanning of the disk is done silently in the background.""In terms of the Firewall, the EAP assist, the simple interface and the reporting features are quite good for clients. It's very easy to understand and to navigate the Dashboard.""Sophos EPP Suite has the capability to stop infections from spreading around the internal network even after the problems have infiltrated it."

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."

More Cisco AMP for Endpoints Cons »

"Its pricing needs to be improved.""McAfee Endpoint Protection could improve the word control feature.""When it runs in the background of the endpoint, the devices get slowed down for some applications.""Support-wise they need to be better.""Sometimes, while installing the ePO, we were getting so many errors and I don't know why it happened.""The solution could use better updates and fewer bugs.""The initial setup is complex. It is a very complex product. You must have experience with it.""On the next release, they should build an easier way to see a repair option within the McAfee icon on your system tray. If there was an issue, you should be able to contact the user or just right-click on "repair". That would be a very good feature to add. That could be a place of improvement, just adding that button, or customizing it."

More McAfee Endpoint Security Cons »

"Configuring notifications is lagging a bit behind the curve as the product should be able to direct exactly where any notification type is sent.""If you are not an IT expert, the solution is difficult to use.""Deployment and central management need to be improved.""In the next release, I would like to see the phishing attached included in the firewall.""I would like to have more logging features to help more deeply analyze traffic.""The solution is not easy to use in comparison to other endpoint security solutions.""The support could be improved. The response times are slow.""Sophos does not currently inform users of potential compatability issues with Windows updates."

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."

"Pricing is reasonable and runs at a cost per user per year.""It is not that expensive. There is no additional cost. We got the entire bundle together.""The price of this product is good.""The price of McAfee is pretty similar to Symantec, and there are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""Its price is very high. It is higher than its competitors, and it should be less.""The pricing is great and licensing fees are billed on a yearly basis."

More McAfee Endpoint Security Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Willing to discount when you are switching from another product. Upgrading services will end up costing more, as expected.""The pricing for this solution is ok.""It may be possible to negotiate licensing cost based on volume.""We purchased a three-year license, which gave us a large discount.""Pricing could always be lower. It costs around $120 per seat per year.""Sophos is cheaper than some competing products."
