Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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 solution's integration capabilities are excellent. It's one of the best features.""It doesn't impact the devices. It is an agent-based solution, and we see no performance knock on cell phones. That was a big thing for us, especially in the mobile world. We don't see battery degradation like you do with other solutions which really drain the battery, as they're constantly doing things. That can shorten the useful life of a device."

"The feature I find most valuable is the advance search engine.""Panda Security solution has a feature to block any unknown process and that is what is best about it.""The patch management module is very important.""The most valuable feature is the web filter application control.""It's very easy to deploy, we don't have any problem or issues. It's most full automatic. It basically takes the assumption that everything is supposed to be a suspect; files, processes, URL accesses, and so on.""Their remote management (RMM) is very good.""The protection from malware is the most important feature. It has some endpoint information about the vehicle of the virus, malware, etc. It is also stable and easy to install, and they also provide good technical support.""The product so far has been good at protecting us. We haven't faced a breach."

"The most valuable feature for our organization is the antivirus, as our staff is the target of zero-day malware and viruses.""With Symantec, I always know this tool will be reliable and with the latest protection.""The feature I find most useful is the console for reporting.""I like the firewall and the intrusion prevention features, and just the basic anti-malware and anti-virus seems to be pretty effective as well.""The features I find the most valuable are the protection, the encryption, and the DLP.""The most valuable features of this solution are that it is really easy to use, and it is secure.""The solution is very stable.""The solution is completely scalable."

Cons
"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.""The technical support is very slow.""I would recommend that the solution offer more availability in terms of the product portfolio and integration with third-party products."

"I would like to see better data protection.""They need to expand their offering of add-ons to enhance capabilities further.""Improvements could be made in terms of how the reporting is structured.""The Linux installation is performed on the command line and they need a package installer for that operating system.""The gap between the two final conclusions is a problem, whether or not a file is known to be malware or is known to be safe.""The only part I really don't use as much is their firewall. It's a bit superfluous. Most people have their own firewall in place, so they don't really need that part portion of the solution.""It needs some improvements in the DNS security feature. Currently, it does not have full DNS security. It only has semi-DNS security, which can be improved. It is an important feature for us, and it would be really good if they can improve the DNS security feature. Our group has some plans to change to Cisco AMP, which has features such as DNS, Umbrella. We are trying to learn about Cisco AMP and compare it with Panda.""Occasionally, we suffer from little bugs that give us the wrong message."

More Panda Security Adaptive Defense Cons »

"I would like to see a hybrid version of this solution that covers both in-house and cloud-based servers.""If Symantec wants to improve, they should have a single event for all their products.""The overall quality of the product needs to be improved because with the last session we had several issues with new versions. Also, the solution needs better protections.""If you're not charged with administering the product and you don't do it every day it can sometimes be difficult to remember how to do the simple basic things, so some type of help or guidance for your most regular or frequent tasks would be good.""The detection and response can always be improved.""Reporting in this solution needs improvement.""The reporting function needs to be more user friendly in general.""The Centralized Management could be improved."

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."

"Our licensing fee is 1M Euro per month, so it is about 80 Euro's per user.""Panda is cloud-only and comes at a reasonable cost. It is a set price per seat.""The price of this solution depends on the number of licenses that you are purchasing.""The licensing is subscription-based and priced well compared to other endpoint security solutions.""The licensing costs are not too high. We pay about 20 Euros a year. It's a reasonable amount to pay."

"We receive a discounted price for this solution because we are a non-profit organization.""The problem is Symantec is more expensive than other vendors.""The pricing is a little bit more expensive than other competitors, if you compare it to Kaspersky, for example, or McAfee.""We pay our licensing fees on a yearly basis, and everything is included in that price.""Its price should be reasonable.""There are subscription costs, we typically purchase the annual subscription. There can be other expenses too, for example, we use CrowdStrike also as part of our policy.""The prices fluctuate, but this year I think it was maybe around $12,000.""The EDR options are costlier than other products."
