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

Pros
"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.""Integration is a key selling factor for Cisco security products. We have a Cisco Enterprise Agreement with access to Cisco Email Security, Cisco Firepower, Cisco Stealthwatch, Cisco Talos, Cisco Threat Grid, Cisco Umbrella, and also third-party solutions. This is key to our security and maximizing operations. Because we do have the Email Security appliance and it is integrated with Threat Response, we have everything tied together. Additionally, we are using the Cisco SecureX platform, as we were a beta test for that new solution. With SecureX, we are able to pull all those applications into one pane for visibility and maintenance. This greatly maximizes our security operations."

"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.""The strength of SentinelOne is that it has an automated, active EDR. It does that first level of what a SOC analyst would do, automatically, using artificial intelligence, so we can focus on other things. Active EDR not only notifies you, but it actually fixes that first level. That is unheard of. Very few, if any, companies do that.""The most valuable feature is that it just unintrusively works in the background to carry out the protection."

"The most amazing qualities of Symantec Endpoint Protection is that it provides a total solution to all virus problems.""The firewall, malware, and anti-virus protection have earned its keep in times past by catching the unexpected.""The valuable features are device control, SONOR, and anti-virus.""This solution helps in that I can control quite a few computers from our central location, with ease.""It's good at detecting signature-based stuff and stopping that.""Some of the features that were important were a built-in firewall and device control.""Some important features that are included are the built-in firewall and device control.""The most valuable feature is the automated updating feature."

Cons
"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.""Maybe there is room for improvement in some of the automated remediation. We have other tools in place that AMP feeds into that allow for that to happen, so I look at it as one seamless solution. But if you're buying AMP all by itself, I don't know if it can remove malicious software after the fact or if it requires the other tools that we use to do some of that."

"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.""The area where it could be improved is reporting. They have some online reporting, but it would be nice to be able to pick and choose. When I'm looking at the console, I would love to be able to pull certain things into a report, the things that are specific to me.""Periodically we have an application that does not work correctly when SentinelOne is installed, yet performs as expected when SentinelOne is removed."

More SentinelOne Cons »

"It is only available to use on computers with higher-end specs.""Managements' number one item on the "Wish List" would have to do with the real-time scan of external media inserted into any client.""I would like to see improvements in the anti-virus and the device control features.""In the next release of this solution, I would like to see more to do with malware, encryption technology, and controlling mobile devices.""It needs to die. In my opinion, Symantec was a really great security company, 10, 15 years ago. They went out, they bought all the great tools and then they never did anything with them. So they've just fallen behind and there's nothing that's going to work now to bring them back up the date that's going to regain user confidence.""They lack the visibility you get in a heuristical, artificial, AI type of product, like a next-gen antivirus.""They are lacking the visibility that you get in a heuristical, next-generation AI product.""This solution is resource-heavy."

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."

"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."

More SentinelOne Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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.""Licensing is based on a yearly subscription.""Symantec is expensive.""Its price is reasonable."
