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."

"We use Sophos Intercept X for Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) in our organization.""It is easy to change the size of its capabilities, i.e. to expand processes or scale the size of users.""We most value the price and interface quality with Sophos Intercept X. We focus on solution quality.""The most valuable feature is the supervisory side of it where we can watch the throughputs, and even the loading of the device, to see how much traffic is happening.""A valuable feature offered by Sophos is called Naked Security, and it entails the control managed by the firewall on the site regarding the desktop client interfacing with our cloud client.""It is a practically maintenance free intelligent system that independently protects environments from malicious attacks.""All of the features are very important for anyone who is supporting a large number of computers.""After that, the client switched to Sophos to get the protection they lacked. It either works or it doesn’t and Sophos works."

"I would emphasize the ease of use and the quality of operations. Trend Micro is quite stable.""The product offers almost all of the features the client expects from such a solution.""This solution protects us from virus attacks before they affect the organization.""It's a good solution, and they have something called Suite incorporating many, many engines like encryption, GLB, anti-virus.""I think this is the best solution in the category of endpoint protection, it's really excellent. It's better than McAfee.""From a technology point of view, it is very simple to install, it's not heavy on the endpoint in terms of the amount of processing cycles. It is simple to deploy and the interfaces are easy. You don't need to be a scientist to operate it.""The most valuable features are the vulnerability protection and virtual patching.""The most valuable features are reporting and where we have the ability to report back and provide information when an item is quarantined or not quarantined."

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."

More Cisco AMP for Endpoints Cons »

"They should work on the logs and events. Sophos Intercept X needs to increase the interface test so that it can export to a live event.""Technical support can be improved. There could be shared support, i.e. where someone in Egypt can respond.""Sophos needs to create a YouTube channel with educational material for technicians or engineers.""In terms of the site-to-site VPN elements, they tend to concentrate. It's quite simple when there are Meraki devices at both ends of the VPN but if there is another user at one end, on another device, it can be a bit tricky. So they could really simplify that process a bit.""The initial setup was not very user-friendly.""The product defends very well on its own but could possibly use enhancement in giving users more controls.""The price of this solution can be improved.""They might want to offer an MSP model for licensing, to offer the solution as a software as a service."

More Sophos Intercept X Cons »

"We had a few occasions where we had to turn off our clients' computers to upgrade the drivers.""Technical support is very very slow. There is no French support. Only English. The experts are in England, the United States, or Japan, I don't know where. So the support is really lacking.""Product performance needs improvement. Customers face the same performance issues on the endpoint of the product. We need improvement on that side.""The alert, or warning function, needs to be improved.""We cover many things, but there is something called ATP, advanced threat prevention. I think they need to invest in this technology.""Could channel video more efficiently.""I think the one place where we like where they lacking is in a unified style dashboard.""The reports are not eye-catching from the customer's point of view, which is something that should 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."

"We renew the license for one year at $10,000.""The price is pretty good.""When you start going to the EDR technologies and the MTR, it is a little bit expensive. It's a very good technology, and obviously, you're going to pay for it, but the pricing could do a little bit of work.""We were able to eliminate the ransomware using the one-month, full-featured trial license.""Licensing is based on the number of users. They give a discount for editors who are considered as important members. From what I know, Sophos products are not expensive. If you have a license extension, you just need to contact the editor or partner to change the mode of licensing or extend the license to cover more people.""Intercept X for endpoints is around $35 per user per year. The server version is $95 per server per year.""I find the pricing to be a little bit expensive, although it is acceptable, for now.""The price of this product should be reduced because it is a little high."

"I think that this product is expensive.""It's well priced at a yearly rate. The price itself depends on whether the solution is full suite, half suite, or some other engine. It's different according to the consumer's requests.""Licensing costs depend completely on the number of users or licenses. They have a specific pricing structure. For example, if you are looking for 100 users to be on the product, in the Indian market (we're based in India), the cost is nearly $2,500 to $3,000 maximum for one three-year license.""The price is reasonable.""Its pricing was good. It is very competitive with all the other vendors.""Compared to other products on the market, I think that the pricing is reasonable.""The price is very good compared to other products.""We have a yearly subscription. Our subscription includes all solutions of Apex One, such as endpoint protection, DLP, and ransomware protection. We are paying around $30 for each."
