Works fine, pretty stable, and easy to deploy

Pros and Cons

  • "It has been working fine. It lets you know when it finds things. We didn't have any incident where the place had to shut down or was taken over by anything. We haven't had any issues that we know of."
  • "It seems to have some issues with updates. When you do updates, it sometimes requests for a reboot, and even when you do the reboot, it still says that you need to reboot. Currently, on my computer, it says that a new ESET Endpoint Antivirus has been installed, and I need to restart the computer for the changes to take effect, but I've already done that, and the same message is still there, which is a little annoying. It should have a feature similar to the Intercept X feature in Sophos."

What is our primary use case?

We are using it to protect our endpoints and servers.

What is most valuable?

It has been working fine. It lets you know when it finds things. We didn't have any incident where the place had to shut down or was taken over by anything. We haven't had any issues that we know of.

What needs improvement?

It seems to have some issues with updates. When you do updates, it sometimes requests for a reboot, and even when you do the reboot, it still says that you need to reboot. Currently, on my computer, it says that a new ESET Endpoint Antivirus has been installed, and I need to restart the computer for the changes to take effect, but I've already done that, and the same message is still there, which is a little annoying.

It should have a feature similar to the Intercept X feature in Sophos.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for a little over a year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Overall, it seems pretty stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

As far as I know, it is scalable. Currently, we have 30 users in our company. We don't have any plans to increase its usage. We're pretty static here.

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't had to deal with their tech support. We would go through the MSP, and the MSP generally interfaces with them. 

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

We were using Sophos. Our MSP had a bad experience with it, so we decided to go with ESET Endpoint Antivirus. We get it through our MSP, and it was a part of the package, and that's why we dropped Sophos.

Sophos had Intercept X on the server-side to protect the files on the server, but we had to pay extra for it to be on the endpoints. We at least had the server version, which was kind of cool.

How was the initial setup?

It was straightforward. Our MSP has a script, and when you run the script, it kind of gets installed automatically. It also gets configured with their systems. It was pretty easy.

What about the implementation team?

Our MSP is Tech Kollective, and they're very responsive.

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

It probably is less expensive than Sophos.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate ESET Endpoint Antivirus an eight out of ten.

Stable and cost-effective, but it is resource-heavy and the interface is horrible

Pros and Cons

  • "It hasn't crashed a single time, so it is stable in that sense."
  • "I think that ESET is a little too heavy on the CPU."

What is our primary use case?

This product is installed by my company's technical team as an antivirus solution.

What needs improvement?

The user interface is horrible.

I think that ESET is a little too heavy on the CPU. I have used other products where this is not necessarily the case. It is not the quickest antivirus product.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using ESET for about seven months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It hasn't crashed a single time, so it is stable in that sense. My understanding is that the decision to implement ESET was recent and we will continue to use it in the future.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The whole company is protected by ESET and we have about 120 employees.

How are customer service and technical support?

When we have troubles then we contact our internal IT team.

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

I personally use the antivirus product that comes with Microsoft Windows.

What about the implementation team?

My IT department pre-installed ESET before I was given the laptop to use.

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

This is not an expensive product.

What other advice do I have?

Personally, I would just use the Microsoft antivirus that comes with Windows. If you have a special laptop or a special set of use cases then you might install a second antivirus such as this, but for myself, I would not.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

Simple to install, scalable, and high performance

Pros and Cons

  • "The performance of the solution is very good it does not impact my hardware and is user-friendly."
  • "The solution could improve by having higher-level security and reporting."

What is our primary use case?

I use for ESET Endpoint Antivirus to protect my personal and business files.

What is most valuable?

The performance of the solution is very good it does not impact my hardware and is user-friendly.

What needs improvement?

The solution could improve by having higher-level security and reporting.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using ESET Endpoint Antivirus for approximately six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

ESET Endpoint Antivirus is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have found ESET Endpoint Antivirus scalable.

We have approximately 150 users using this solution.

How are customer service and support?

I have not faced an issue that I would need to contact the support.

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

I have used Kaspersky and Trend Micro previously.

How was the initial setup?

The installation is straightforward.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

When comparing ESET Endpoint Antivirus to other antivirus programs, such as Trend Micro or Kaspersky, it is the best. The other two were too heavy on the system resources, it consumes a lot of hardware. Additionally, they could not detect auto-run viruses.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others.

I rate ESET Endpoint Antivirus a nine out of ten.
