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

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.

What other advice do I have?

The functionality of the solution is pretty good. I think with every version the solution gets dramatically better. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

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.

What needs improvement?

I think the console can be better. The end-user also cannot do some advanced actions on it. It's a little bit complicated for our end-user, so it needs to be simplified. I think the solution is complicated. This one is one of the concerns that I like to talk about because some end-users do not know… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I 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.
