Helpful support, intuitive interface, and it effectively protects our confidential graphics files

Pros and Cons

  • "The software is easy to use and the dashboard is intuitive."
  • "It would be helpful if they offered discounted pricing for long-term contracts to serve customers who are interested in committing for periods of three years, five years, or longer."

What is our primary use case?

We store graphics files on our computers and they are confidential, so we implemented this product to block all of the computers from being able to send the data outside of our organization.

We use it to block USB ports so that people cannot connect an external hard drive, flash drive, or anything else that people can use to take files off of the system. Essentially, it blocks data transfer.

How has it helped my organization?

We only have two policies. The first is to block everything and the second one allows for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections.

This product does give us multiple choices for blocking data exit points. Without giving specifics, I can say that I know we have better security because of it.

We have Mac and PC machines, and it is very easy to manage both types. There is no noticeable difference in features between Mac and Windows machines.

We use role-based access for administering this solution, but as we are a small company, it is only insofar as having an administrative role that can perform any of the functions when needed. Some people can unblock certain policies, but we have a single administrator that can do everything.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is blocking data transfer.

The software is easy to use and the dashboard is intuitive.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Endpoint Protector since I joined the company five years ago. I believe that they were using it for one or two years prior to that.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability-wise, it is very good and very safe. It seems to work fine.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have approximately 117 endpoints and for the time being, I don't think that we will be expanding. We already have all of our computers.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not used technical support often, but every time I have, it was perfect. They have good support and they have helped me very well.

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

Several years ago, we used ESET but we found that it only logged the files that were transferred via the ports. This was not what we wanted to do, so we canceled the license and implemented Endpoint Protector instead for blocking the ports.

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

When I last renewed the license it was for a two-year term, and they gave me the second year at half price. It was a very nice gesture. Normally, I renew my license annually and I was happy to get a discount for committing to two years. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.

It would be helpful if they offered discounted pricing for long-term contracts to serve customers who are interested in committing for periods of three years, five years, or longer. I have been with the same company for five years, it was installed when I arrived, and we are going to continue using it in the future. Perhaps after a company has completed their first year, they should propose longer contracts to them.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering this product is that if they want something to protect data on both Macs and PCs then this is a very good choice. I have never worked with a product that is this easy to use.

In summary, this is a good product and for now, I think that it has everything we need. It seems to be a perfect match for us.

I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
