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

Pros
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.

It has the ability to rollback a ransomware infection instantly and with minimal disruption to the user & provides robust reporting.The solution offers very rich details surrounding threats or attacks.We have a preference for their receptor. It's good at finding many EFC files. EFC files could have a virus.The most valuable feature of this solution is the user-friendly interface.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.I have found the activity timeline and threat analysis to be particularly useful.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.It has good visibility features and it's straightforward.

Cons
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.

Set up is very labor-intensive.The solution needs better reporting on new threats and malware. The reporting is present, but I can't find the information easily.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.This solution would be more attractive to customers if the price were lower.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.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.The reporting needs improvement and I would like to see a more granular level of administrative privileges.There is not much flexibility in terms of policy fine-tuning. We can turn it off or turn it on, but, there's nothing much else to do. Everything is predefined. It's good in a way, but you don't get much flexibility if you want to do something particular.
