What is most valuable?

On the management side, we liked the way it displays things.

It should provide more details about the events that they have detected. There should be more information available post-incident. Basically, the user is informed that… more»

What other advice do I have?

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the user-friendly interface. Our customers ask for something that is easy to use, easy to manipulate and doesn't require too much intervention. This is where SentinelOne scored big against CrowdStrike and Carbon Black. This solution is easy to install.
