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»

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

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.

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

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).

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

How has it helped my organization?

As ESET is a lightweight antivirus and gives us the most useful features that we need on an endpoint, we are comfortable after installing it. You don't need to worry about… more»

What needs improvement?

The heuristic of ESET is not so effective in standard mode. We have to implement some policies on it to have good protection against malware like Zero-Day and ransomware… more»

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

The cost-benefit of ESET, from my point of view, is really good for an antivirus for small and medium business.

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

Yes, as a software distributor I also work with Sophos for example, and the cost-benefit of ESET is better than Sophos.

What other advice do I have?

It's a good antivirus for small and medium businesses. However, be careful with the policies; implementing best practices of ESET policies is necessary. Also make sure it… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, I evaluated Sophos, but I would have to upgrade the machines to install it on all PCs.

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 is most valuable?

Easy to use security solution, helps to secure connected devices against viruses in the digital world.

What needs improvement?

iOS compatibility for mobile security and parental control.

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

Pricing per month, for security services as apps in CEE pricing: up to €2 monthly is OK. With pricing around €5 per month you have to provide really strong value as it is already at the level of one… more»

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

ESET is a top Slovak company, renowned in the industry as is their solution. Previously I tried AVG and McAfee solutions, but did not feel my device was really secure.

What other advice do I have?

We have cooperated with ESET for many years. We resell their products with orange branded versions that help us to create revenue of more than €3 million yearly.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Not really. By the time we started cooperation with ESET, their competitors didn’t even have local support in Slovakia.

What do you think of ESET Endpoint Security?

What is our primary use case?

Network security for an organization with around 20 networked computers with all users diving all over the internet for disparate interests. It is easy enough to pick up a bug, and we do not want one.

How has it helped my organization?

We have not picked up a bug yet, because we use ESET, which is a tried, proven system. 

What is most valuable?

We use ESET, which is pretty much perfect for us. It is also absolutely simple and automatic once setup.  It is absolutely invisible once running. It effectively catches unwanted stuff. It has saved our bacon over many years.

What needs improvement?

You have to buy it.

For how long have I used the solution?

Trial/evaluations only.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues. …
