We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The patch management is very easy, as it can be done automatically or added to a schedule."
"Provides good vulnerability assessment."
"It shows us the risky sign-ins, and if a user's password has been compromised."
"What I like most is the protection against phishing emails and anti-spam."
"In the past, we were not able to identify a few viruses, but now we are able to identify them because of the machine learning feature."
"I have found the activity timeline and threat analysis to be particularly useful."
"All of the features are valuable. The way that it integrates into management with fault correction capabilities over is especially valuable. Any of the full gamut of the features that it provides are useful to us."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the user-friendly interface."
"We have a preference for their receptor. It's good at finding many EFC files. EFC files could have a virus."
"The solution offers very rich details surrounding threats or attacks."
"It has the ability to rollback a ransomware infection instantly and with minimal disruption to the user & provides robust reporting."
"We love the API. We use it to generate robust reporting, and we also developed tools to perform agent actions remotely without needing to provide all IT staff with console access."
"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."
"I would like to see better integration with their other security products to give better visibility from a higher level."
"The GUI is very complex and could be more user friendly."
"I am not sure if I will be using this product in the future because of the price."
"If they integrate with the EDR then it will benefit this solution."
"The scanning is slow when it is working with incoming emails."
"The reporting needs improvement and I would like to see a more granular level of administrative privileges."
"I would like to see something a little more sophisticated than simply being able to mark a false positive as safe or there's usually just one or two options in certain areas and they're a little rudimentary at this stage."
"In terms of improvement, I would like to see better alerting to let us know if there is anything wrong with SentinelOne working on the endpoint of the computer."
"This solution would be more attractive to customers if the price were lower."
"It's fine. It's correcting all the EFC files with a virus. All the achievements, maximum EFC files. Many EFC files will be flagged as a virus. Some virus databases need to be updated. The model is good at finding many EFC files. The trouble is it needs to be updated."
"The solution needs better reporting on new threats and malware. The reporting is present, but I can't find the information easily."
"Set up is very labor-intensive."
"It would be nice if the console stored data daily, so that you could look at a timeline of events on a machine over a period of time, and currently this is not possible."
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."
"If you don't purchase the advanced threat protection then there is no additional charge."
"Microsoft Defender ATP is expensive."
"When compared with other vendors, the pricing is very high."
"We sell this product as part of Office 365 and it is not expensive."
"The per-seat cost is low, but you have to commit to a certain number of licenses for a year."
"The larger count you have, the deeper discount you will receive in your contract."
"Our licensing fees are about $5 USD per endpoint, per month."
"USD$6 per end point which decreases as end points increase."
"Pricing is a bit of a pain point. That's where we have not been able to convince all of our customers to use SentinelOne. The pricing is still on the higher side. It's almost double the price, if not more, of a normal antivirus, such as NOD32, Kaspersky, or Symantec."
"The solution's price/performance ratio is reasonable."
"You have to look at the kinds of problems you can end up with and the fact that you want security against them, and then SentinelOne is not expensive."
"It was cheaper than McAfee, which was a way to convince management to go with the solution."
