Quotes From Members

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."

"Intercept X is the most valuable feature in the solution. It's more or less pretty standard. The endpoint feature allows you to basically see what is happening, and stop a wide range of threats. It's been the most unique identifier for Sophos.""The protection that this solution offers us is strong.""The most valuable feature is the ability to centrally manage the total security environment, including the firewall.""With Sophos, the scanning of viruses and scanning of the disk is done silently in the background.""In terms of the Firewall, the EAP assist, the simple interface and the reporting features are quite good for clients. It's very easy to understand and to navigate the Dashboard.""Sophos EPP Suite has the capability to stop infections from spreading around the internal network even after the problems have infiltrated it.""The central management of the anti-virus features for our end user is a very valuable aspect of the solutions.""The anti-malware and web filtering are the solutions most valuable aspects."

"Personally, I find the Game Mode of the Firewall very useful.""This antivirus is regularly updated, and the updates can be scheduled."

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."

More Cisco Secure Endpoint Cons »

"Deployment and central management need to be improved.""In the next release, I would like to see the phishing attached included in the firewall.""I would like to have more logging features to help more deeply analyze traffic.""The solution is not easy to use in comparison to other endpoint security solutions.""The support could be improved. The response times are slow.""Sophos does not currently inform users of potential compatability issues with Windows updates.""The management console need improvement.""The solution isn't quite accurate enough. It provides a lot of false positives."

More Sophos EPP Suite Cons »

"Some of our users say that the interface is a little bit outdated for 2020, and want it to be more modern and cozy.""Currently, the client is only available for the Windows Operating System but it would be good if it were released for Mac OS as well."

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 pricing for this solution is ok.""It may be possible to negotiate licensing cost based on volume.""We purchased a three-year license, which gave us a large discount.""Pricing could always be lower. It costs around $120 per seat per year.""Sophos is cheaper than some competing products."

"We use the free version of the software, but it can be upgraded to the paid Extreme Security edition.""This is a freeware product and I recommend using it."
