Prevented me from clicking on malware that other solutions missed

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is anti-malware, to prevent endpoints from getting viruses.

Pros and Cons

  • Deep Instinct complements the solutions we already have. You don't need to rip and replace any antivirus or endpoint that you have. It's easy to use and it's easy to have it side-by-side with other solutions. That makes it really easy to have an additional level of protection, rather than to hassle with doing solution migration.
  • The CPU consumption is low compared to what I have been using in my current environment, which is Sophos. The footprint is a lot smaller, about a quarter of Sophos. It is very small.
  • I would like to see improvement in the user interface so that the user has more control. For example, it would be good if a user could change their grouping if they want to be part of another group. Or if I want to right-click and scan a specific file that I just imported, that would be helpful. Sometimes you just want to do an extra scan to make sure you're safe.

What other advice do I have?

Generally, as a company, we like the solution. As compared to many other solutions on the market, it has a differentiator: the deep learning, and they even share what their deep learning algorithms are. You are really assured that this thing will be able to solve real-world problems. In terms of Deep Instinct finding any malicious files which were underscored by other solutions, I have not really gone into the details but I do see that sometimes, when I click on the link to go to Virus Total, it doesn't show up anywhere else. But I haven't really dug deep enough. As for the extent to which it…

Its false positives are very low because the behavior analysis engine double checks them

What is our primary use case?

I use it quite extensively. I use it on my PC, server, and mobile phone for my own testing. I also use it for testing of some of my business partners, including telecommunications, construction companies, banks, EFSIs, different industries, and different scenarios.

Pros and Cons

  • Its false positives are very low, because the behavior analysis engine double checks them.
  • Deep Instinct's detection rate is close to 100 percent.
  • The detection rate is very high. In all the testing with around 20 partners in different environments, quite a lot of them had installed with other anti-malware applications, like Sophos. This software can co-exist with those applications in the same machine. This is impressive.
  • I am looking forward to them adding Linux in Q1 or Q2 of 2019, as this is often requested by my partners and customers. Currently, Deep Instinct only has Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS.

Cost and Licensing Advice

  • If I include the false positive rate and the detection rate in the comparison, Deep Instinct is worth its price.

What other advice do I have?

Put it on your Internet with your existing anti-malware. You will be amazed. Our information security officer thinks this is a good solution. He definitely gives it a thumbs up. For financial company or banks, they should know that Deep Instinct does not require internet connection nor require frequent updates for a plan agent or server. Once they know that, Deep Instinct is the only choice. Usually, for the banking and finance industry, there are a lot of servers or PCs, and they are in a closed network which can't access the Internet. So, they always have a problem updating a signature and a…
