Responsive and fast support, easy to deploy, well-tuned to ignore false positives

What is our primary use case?

We use this product for endpoint security and threat remediation.

Pros and Cons

  • "We have a small IT Team, and this allows us to get sleep at night, knowing that someone else is taking care of any incidents that occur."
  • "It would be nice if the dashboard had some more information upfront, and looked a little better."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is looking into implementing CrowdStrike is to go ahead and do it. There is nothing to worry about and they deliver as promised. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Has simplified management, has a nice UI, and it's very simple but EDR needs improvement

Pros and Cons

  • "What I like the most about it is the dynamic grouping, where you get to group endpoints based on setup criteria. That's pretty cool. I like the simplified policy management and simplified white-listing process."
  • "The EDR portion could be better. I'm not a big fan, but it works."

What other advice do I have?

The implementation is very easy but the security aspects could be better. If you don't have a SIEM solution in your organization, you're probably engaging via email.But there's no way to point me to customize the email templates if I want to see more information on that email before going to the console. It's still a business and company, but I'm the only one who is managing everything. So when I see the email on my phone, I want to see more information before logging into the console. I want to see more filtering options to narrow down more field training. I also wish it was easier and more…

Threat protection that is priced well, easy to deploy, and allows you to use the same agent for detection and response

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for protection.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is that the same agent can act as the endpoint detection and response agent."
  • "Reporting is a major issue, as it is not user friendly."

What other advice do I have?

I am a user of Symantec as well as an admin with the Symantec support team. I was the technical support account manager and I would support other customers. Symantec release updates two or three times per day. If you have a low bandwidth it will never get updated, although there are options to resolve this. First, you have to decide on your requirements and what features you are looking for, then you can consider any endpoint detection and response solution. There are good products on the market; there is one in particular that is cloud-based, where you don't need a single investment, but you…

Services perform well, minimal resources, and synchronizes well with other solution

What is our primary use case?

We are not only using Sophos Endpoint with this solution, we are also using Sophos Email Security and firewall. It is a completely synchronized security package.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is overall quite good, the services are performing well. It is very good for those who are using standard PC configurations. It does not block their system up by taking up a lot of resources."
  • "This solution is not in the high ratings on many of the top review sites. This solution has to be near the top for me to continue using it."

What other advice do I have?

I rate Sophos Intercept X a nine out of ten.
