"We've found the pricing to be reasonable.""It has the feature to track an attack back. If there is an incident or an attack occurs, you can get a bird's eye view of that attack. You can see how the attackers came in and how they managed the attack. You can trace an attack. If you are giving a presentation to the management, you can easily show it to them in a live environment how the attackers came, which is amazing.""Its detection rate is valuable. It is really an easy product to install and manage. It is quite effective at what it does, and if needed, it can also be co-managed, which means 24 hours and seven days a week monitoring through a SOC."

Cons
"It would be helpful if the solution could scan faster when it comes to scanning attachments to emails.""The data recovery and backup could be improved.""The price could be better. It'll also help if they can continuously update and upgrade the solution. Every day there's a new virus uploaded into the network, and we have to keep updating it to identify all these things.""The solution could improve by having better machine learning and AI. Additionally, the interface, documentation, and integration could be better."

"The solution lacks compatibility with other products. It needs to integrate better with other surrounding solutions.""It should integrate with more tools. There are a lot of tools that can do the PTP dump.""There isn't a lot I'd do to change it. The web interface could be improved to sort of make it a little easier to manage multiple clients out of one location. It could also be made a bit easier to sort of manage the licensing side of it."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The solutions price is fair for what they offer.""The price could be better. Normally, the costs depend on the country you're located in for the license. When we were in the initial stage, we went with the E5 license they call premium standard. It cost us around $5.20 per month for four users.""The price of the solution is high compared to others and we have lost some customers because of it."

"It is costly. It is not that affordable for a small organization. Only big organizations can afford it. It is a new feature that has been added, so its price is fair. Its licensing is probably subscription-based. It is for one or two years.""It would be nice if it was a little bit cheaper, but I think it has a fair price. It is comparable to others in the market."
