What is most valuable?

A majority of its features are very good, well-designed, and programmed. Most of the machine learning has features where we took a deep analysis on kernel level scanning… more»

How has it helped my organization?

After deploying Traps, we saw the performance of the network improve by 65 to 70 percent. There was a drop in the latency rate over the application, when accessed via our… more»

What needs improvement?

There are some default policies which sometimes affect our applications and cause them to run around. In the hotel industry, we use a different type of data versus Oracle… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is cost-effective compared to similar solutions. It fits for the small businesses through to the big businesses.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were the victim of ransomware. Prior to that we were using an antivirus application from Sophos, which was not able to detect that ransomware engine which encrypted our… more»

What other advice do I have?

Overall, Traps is a very good application when you compare endpoint security solutions available in the market. You can see your value for your money. You can see the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have worked with different product lines: McAfee, ESET Endpoint Security, and Sophos. However, I find the Traps to be much better in comparison to all the other… more»

What is most valuable?

The EDR feature of CrowdStrike is fantastic. Also, in comparison to other solutions, it can connect remotely, so our security analysts can get into the system directly and do manual analysis as well… more»

How has it helped my organization?

First, it is a production from known and unknown interests. Second, it has an extremely low footprint, so it has minimal impact on the user endpoints in terms of CPU and memory usage. The tamper… more»

What needs improvement?

There are a couple of issues with the compatibility to some of the operating systems. But, I see that there are a lot of things in the pipeline. They have a roadmap, and continuously are improving… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing will depend upon your volume of usage.

What other advice do I have?

It is a complete cloud-based solution, so they will have to factor in the compliance requirements as well. Not everyone is comfortable sending the data to the cloud, especially considering the privacy… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have prior experience with Cylance and Dell Data Security Agent powered by Cylnace, which I would not say is a complete EDR. I also have prior work knowledge of SECDO, which has been acquired by… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the antispam module, which comes in the bundle. It is very helpful and integrates with the local Outlook, or email, client. The HIPS is another good feature.

How has it helped my organization?

Once the initial setup and configuration is complete, you just have to sit back and monitor.

What needs improvement?

The initial setup needs improvement because you have to create quite a few policies, and sometimes it misses machines when it comes to discovery. This means that you have to manually deploy on some… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have worked with Cylance. It does not have the problem where some machines are missed during the initial setup and discovery process, but it suffers from having too many false positives. I think it… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would not recommend this solution on a larger scale. To improve, they need to cut down the number of steps required for deployment. They also have to increase the availability of technical support… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

If I were in an environment that required a large-scale deployment then I would choose another solution over ESET.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the integration with Check Point's firewalls. You can have one port, and follow the logs from both Endpoint and firewall security.

What needs improvement?

The solution could improve VPN functionality and the VPN user-interface.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We pay roughly 80,000 Swedish krona per year. When it comes to the firewall, it's roughly 150,000 Swedish krona yearly. There's also maintenance, of course, which is roughly 10,000 krona per month.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously had a Cisco solution.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others considering implementing the solution is, depending of course on if the company is looking for a new kind of firewall solution, is "Don't do it yourself." I would rate the solution… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated a few solutions, including Cylance. We evaluated the existing solutions and compared them to Check Point.

What is most valuable?

I found the features of this console to be good. In the chain of actions, if I click on something, it will provide more options for other things. In addition, it gives all… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has a practical use. If a file was infected on somebody's laptop or workstation, then it is now easier for us to understand what the impact is on the environment. The… more»

What needs improvement?

* There can be problems with the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). * The reporting feature needs improvement.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

In terms of cost, this is a good choice for our needs.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I previously used CylancePROTECT. In comparison, Cybereason is new, and has a couple of things which are not good. However, it detects false positives in the end and gives… more»

What other advice do I have?

An organization seeking a product like this needs to evaluate its standpoint. It must decide whether it is looking for flexibility or ease of administration.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I previously considered CylancePROTECT and CrowdStrike. However, we found Cybereason a better solution for our needs.
