A seamless solution for Windows with good reporting and performance

What is our primary use case?

We are one of the major drug stores in Germany. We are located in 13 European countries such as Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, and Poland. I'm working here as an IT Administrator, and I'm focusing on software deployment and antivirus solutions. Our use case is that we got to have antivirus. Cyber insurance forces us to have an antivirus solution that meets the requirements the insurance has. In terms of deployment, we're using Defender without ATP in the old world. For domain-joined clients and on the Intune-managed clients, we use Defender in combination with ATP. The on-prem clients are… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The whole bundle of the product, which is similar to other Microsoft products, is valuable. Ten years ago, you had third-party stuff for different things. You had one solution for email archiving and another third-party one for something else. Nowadays, Microsoft Office covers all the stuff that was formerly covered by third-party solutions. It is the same with antivirus. The functionality is just basic. You have the scanning, and then you also have a kind of cloud-based protection and reporting about your environment. With Microsoft Security Center, you have a complete overview of your environment. You know the software inventory, and you have security recommendations. You can not only see that the antivirus is up to date; you can also see where are the vulnerabilities in your system. Microsoft Security Center tells you where you have old, deprecated software and what kind of CVEs are addressed. It's really cool stuff."
  • "We encountered some misbehavior between Microsoft Office Suite and Defender. We had issues of old macros being blocked and some stuff going around the usage of Win32 APIs. There is some improvement between the Office products and Defender, and there is a bunch of stuff that you can configure in your antivirus solutions, but you have several baselines, such as security baselines for Edge, security baselines for Defender, and security baselines for MDM. You have configuration profiles as well. So, there a lot of parts where we can configure our antivirus solution, and we're getting conflicting configurations. This is the major part with which we're struggling in this solution. We are having calls and calls with Microsoft for getting rid of all configuration conflicts that we have. That's really the part that needs to be improved."

What other advice do I have?

In terms of the end-user experience, end-users don't like to be bothered with the virus scan. A virus scan is always annoying for the end-user. An end-user cannot actually configure the antivirus and only gets a notification if something is wrong or some malware is found. That's it. There is not really an end-user experience. The performance of the client is fine with Defender. We are not encountering many performance issues or any serious issues with Defender. When we turned over to Defender, some of the applications that were functioning absolutely flawlessly with McAfee started to have…

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.

Thorough detection, great flexibility, and straightforward setup

What is our primary use case?

We are mainly using the solution for management because it contains a variety of different tools. For example, it has EDR and NTSA which are integrated into the solution enabling it to monitor threats on the network and the endpoint site. Additionally, we are using it because of the Patch Management encryption module tool. It essentially provides what we need in terms of our next-generation endpoint.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are the solution's thorough detection and ease of use."
  • "In terms of improvement of the solution, it could have better features. For example, having a firewall within. This way we would only need one solution."

What other advice do I have?

I recommend the solution because it has great flexibility and the agility of the solution over time is great. I rate Bitdefender GravityZone Ultra an eight out of ten.

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.

Reliable, fast customer service, and priced fair

What is our primary use case?

We are mainly using the solution to protect our computers from malware and other dangerous occurrences.

Pros and Cons

  • "I have had absolutely no problem with using this solution, it really works well."
  • "It is not possible to buy it from the company itself, or resellers in other countries. If it is available, I see that it is offered as part of a larger service. For me, this was not suitable."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. However, it is not possible to use it for small companies at this moment. It is not possible to buy it from the company itself, or resellers in other countries. If it is available, I see that it is offered as part of a larger service. For me, this was not suitable. I rate Symantec Endpoint Detection and Response a ten out of ten.
