Previously we used Symantec's End Point protection. Forticlient is easier in that it is less demanding on our organization's hardware resources. We previously used ESET also.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have previously used Symantec and ESET. I have not considered evaluating other options, but I update the information on the previous options I have used, and I'm following the latest trends.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We used other solutions, like ESET and Kaspersky. We had to change at first due to user complaints, especially about Kaspersky, because it used a lot of the resources. So we switched to ESET but after some time we just switched to Windows Defender.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend the solution because I can confidently tell everyone that this product is working very well and it's stable. You are always sure that they are able to deal with a virus or something else that may interrupt your work. I would rate this solution nine out of 10.
