Provides stable protection for all our systems, file servers and domain controllers

What is our primary use case?

We may be using version 13 or 14, although I can't say for certain.  The solution provides protection for all our systems, file servers, endpoints and domain controllers.

What needs improvement?

We are dissatisfied with certain functions, such as those for application updates, which are not usable and don't work.  The application updates and drive encryption are lacking. The former cannot be used or monitored. We would like to be able to use our domain controller for management purposes.  The solution could also be more secure. 

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Kaspersky Endpoint Security for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Effective fast scanning, scales well, but lacking new features

Pros and Cons

  • "One of the main features of this solution is the fast scanning capabilities."
  • "I would like to see better-enhanced features, such as protection against ransomware and different types of malicious malware."

What is our primary use case?

We are using this solution for endpoint protection against intrusions, such as viruses.

What is most valuable?

One of the main features of this solution is the fast scanning capabilities.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better-enhanced features, such as protection against ransomware and different types of malicious malware.

In an upcoming release, I would like to see DLP, encryption, and a VPN feature. There are a lot of other solutions coming out which claim they have all these features together.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have found the solution to be stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have over 3,000 users using the solution in my organization and the solution is scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support has been great. When we log a ticket we receive a solution shortly after.

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

We were previously using Symantec.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was easy and not challenging.

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

The price of the solution is reasonable. It is less costly compared to competitors.

What other advice do I have?

I rate Kaspersky Endpoint Security a seven out of ten.

Protects all of out devices from cyberattacks

Pros and Cons

  • "This solution is stable."
  • "Reaching their support team can be difficult."

What needs improvement?

Over the years, I have learned that we always need to keep updating our OS — especially Windows. Any application that sits on Windows needs to be updated. This allows us to better detect and remove any infections. Sometimes, there are a few infections that we can't get rid of. In this case, we have to find another way to clean up the registry; otherwise, we have to reinstall everything again.

In terms of the interface, I prefer something that is simple without so much color. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for the last 10 years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Reaching their support team can be difficult. I've dealt with Sophos before; they were quite responsive to our issues.

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

We are actually going to be switching to Sophos Endpoint Security.

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

I think the price of this solution is good. 

What other advice do I have?

Make sure you are online in order to receive updates. The engine itself doesn't do much without updated data. With updates, you'll be at least 90% protected.

Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of eight.

Enables us to see all of the data using the central view

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the central view. With this view, I can see all of the data."
  • "I find it to be slow on my end and would like to see that improve. I think the e-learning portal can be updated because it's been disabled due to an upgrade. The data could be updated as well. I also think that pricing could be improved."

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the central view. With this view, I can see all of the data.

What needs improvement?

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using Kaspersky Endpoint Security since 2018.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer service/technical support staff have been responsive. They look for documentation and listen to you as you describe what happened.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it in-house, and the deployment took several days.

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

We have been using a yearly subscription and feel that pricing could be better. Perhaps, discounts could be given, during the renewal process, to those who have been customers for some time.
