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 of this solution is the management. The management center to it is fantastic. I set it up so that it goes over the internet from one site to… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This product is very good at what it does. It's very pro-active and not reactive. If you're running a company, it makes administration a lot easier.

What needs improvement?

Everything has some kind of room for improvement.

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

This solution is a good value for the money.

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

I have used nearly all of these kinds of solutions throughout my career, and this is the one that I tend to go back to because it's all there. Specifically, I have used… more»

What other advice do I have?

This is a good, all-in product. Even the home, end-user products by this vendor are very good. If you're serious about endpoint security then this is the only product you… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Cisco has been marketing its Umbrella solution, and it is a very good product, but it is also very expensive. It is not economical, whereas ESET falls perfectly right… more»

How has it helped my organization?

ESET Endpoint Security helps to improve our organisation's security. ESET Endpoint Security provides a smart level of security with a low system footprint, low bandwidth… more»

What needs improvement?

ESET Endpoint Security does not have application control. ESET should consider giving it application control. Also, it needs to improve the temper protection and provide… more»

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

The cost is a very reasonable. When compared with other products, the price is low (though not very low).

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

We have some level of experience with Panda, Kaspersky, and Symantec. We considered the resources that would be taken, the performance of PCs, the malware detection… more»

What other advice do I have?

ESET Remote Administrator server (ERA) installation and ESET Endpoint Security Agent installation are not complex. Policy configuration is also not hard and can be done in… more»

What is most valuable?

What is great about ESET is the ERA Web Console through which we can pull various reports, and monitor and administer all clients and servers. In addition, the console is easy to use. The most valuable feature for us is the ability to create custom reports. Also, they are not exclusively related to… more»

How has it helped my organization?

ESET is recognized as one of the best in the security field. It provides a high level of security and the ERA Web Console increases productivity because we can do all we need to do with clients from one central place. And we have plenty of options for those clients.

What needs improvement?

They need to improve licensing for VMs. When ESET is uninstalled from a VM, the seat stays on the license management server. We have to manually delete the seat from that server because it doesn't know how to handle it. I contacted exclusive ESET support here in Croatia and they told me there is no… more»

What other advice do I have?

Gives you a reliable endpoint security product with high security standards and easy administration from everywhere.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspect of the solution is malware protection, specifically in relation to mail.

What needs improvement?

The solution should offer more security surrounding blacklisted websites. It would be good if they had some sort of solution or feature that helped deal with files infected by ransomware which could be detected by the user.

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

Currently, we are running on a three-year license. The pricing might be around $20,000. There aren't any costs above the standard licensing fee.

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

We didn't previously use a different solution. I did use Kapersky at a different company, but I didn't find it as secure.

What other advice do I have?

I'd recommend the solution. The security is good and it's easy to install even on an enterprise level. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the sandbox, mail scanning, sandboxing attachments, files, and that it responds to VPN porting.

What needs improvement?

The IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) Firewall is not available. The solution includes only Intrusion Detection and not IPS, which is an important feature that is missing in my version. In the next release, I would like to see the IPS Firewall included, as well as the VPN porting and Intelligence… more»

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

Previously I was using SEP, Symantec Endpoint Security, Check Point Endpoint Security, and Sophos. They are all very high-level. The company decided to try ESET, so we will have to wait and see.

What other advice do I have?

It's still a very new product so I don't have all of the information. Maybe in a month or two, I will know more. There are many differences with other solutions such as IPS Firewall, VPN, cloud management, and multi-level cloud management, that I cannot compare as I have not yet experienced all of… more»

What is most valuable?

This solution blocks the brand new malware threats. It automatically blocks them without updates.

How has it helped my organization?

ESET Endpoint Security helps with the automatic system scanning. This solution gives us real time protection.

What needs improvement?

I would like them to take more preventative measures in virus prediction. I would also like to see AI features that would do this type of prediction.

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

At first we thought it was a bit expensive, but we negotiated a better price.

What other advice do I have?

This solution has become a security manager for our company. It provides a prevention of many different malware attacks. In terms of the current global landscape, it is a great solution.

What do you think of ESET Endpoint Security?

What is our primary use case?

The client needed to use an antivirus and to change Windows Firewall, so he used ESET Endpoint Security.

How has it helped my organization?

If you use ESET Antivirus Security with ESET ERA Server as a middle computer in your network, you can manage all features and updates from one place.

What is most valuable?

The AV engine doesn't burden the PC.

What needs improvement?

They need to improve the FW part and, of course, ESET ERA Server.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
