Pricing Advice

What users are saying about Morphisec Breach Prevention Platform pricing:
  • "Our licensing is tied into our contract. Because we have a long-term contract, our pricing is a little bit lower. It is per year, so we don't get charged per endpoint, but we do have a cap. Our cap is 80 endpoints. If we were to go over 80, when we renewed our contract, which is not until three years are over. Then, they would reevaluate, and say, "Well, you have more than 80 devices active right now. This is going to be the price change." They know that we are installing and replacing computers, so the numbers will be all over the place depending on whether you archive or don't archive, which is the reason why we just have to keep up on that stuff."
  • "It is priced correctly for what it does. They end up doing a good deal of discounting, but I think it is priced appropriately."
  • "It is an annual subscription basis per device. For the devices that we have in scope right now, it is about $25,000 a year."

We have peace of mind knowing there is an additional layer of security protecting our endpoints

What is our primary use case?

I use it mainly as an additional layer of security since we have quite a lot of servers. I have unblocked a couple of things that got filtered out, and it worked great. We are a small company, not a really large firm. We were on-prem before, but now we are on a SaaS service that they provide, which is hosted through AWS. This makes it easier for me to access from any location. I can also have Morphisec lock it down to a specific IP for allowing me to get into the system. I would need to be on a computer within the network in order to access the AWS site.

Pros and Cons

  • "Morphisec stops attacks without needing to know what type of threat it is, just that it is foreign. It is based on injections, so it would know when a software launches. If a software launches and something else also launches, then it would count that as anomalous and block it. Because the software looks at the code, and if it executes something else that is not related, then Morphisec would block it. That is how it works."
  • "Right now, it's just their auto-update feature. I know they are currently working on that. When they release a new version of the threat prevention platform, I do have to update that, rolling out to every computer. They have said, "From version 5, you would be able to do an auto-update." While this is very minor, that is the only thing that I would say needs to be upgraded. It would just make life a lot easier for other IT teams. However, I have simplified the process, so all I need to do is just download one file."

What other advice do I have?

Read the instructions. They literally tell you everything you need to do. Just make sure that you know what Morphisec is before getting into it, because it is not an antivirus. They have a feature that binds with Windows Defender. Windows Defender is an antivirus and Morphisec is more of unified threat prevention for memory attacks. So, you still need to have an antivirus. Morphisec is a security platform. The things that it does are better for companies who have sensitive information that they don't want to risk getting out. If they have Morphisec, they can feel safe that their stuff is…

Light on the endpoint and does not have any performance hindrance on the endpoint

What is our primary use case?

When Morphisec first came out, it was on-prem and we used a group policy to deploy it to the endpoints. Working with them was one of the things I did and then obviously when Covid hit I had a large majority of my workforce that started working remotely. And deploying new endpoints remotely using GPO can be a struggle. I talked to them about that and the next day I got a phone call. We're actually moving to their cloud platform that does automatic updates in the cloud now. So that if I have people working remotely, they get the update automatically. It's not signature updates and whatnot, since… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Since using Morphisec we have seen a downturn in attacks because Morphisec protects us versus Defenders and whatnot that are signature-based. I know we have not had any issues with ransomware or other zero-day attacks that we've seen with machines that, all of a sudden, have become before we instituted the product. Now the machine had to be re-imaged and there was a loss of data because something was on the machine. You couldn't really determine what was on the machine because nothing was picking it up. The products we were using weren't picking it up."
  • "Those are some of the features that I was looking for on my on-prem platform that they've already instituted in the cloud and that I'm sure will be instituting on their on-prem platform as well. Having to have an on-prem server required a lot of administration. Being able to push that to the cloud and have it managed up there for us is a real nice addition."

What other advice do I have?

I've used their product since its infancy, if they're looking for a product that is reasonably priced, does what it says it's going to do, requires very little administration and deployment effort, then this is the product I would be looking at. Compared to what I've seen out there right now, I'd rate Morphisec a 10 out of 10. I really can't say enough about the product. There may be some other products coming out there that are going to compete, and that's fine. And if you look at those other products, you better take a really good, hard look at Morphisec and see what they can do. Look at the…

Has made our security team's operations a lot easier and reduced the amount of time we spend investigating false positives

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to protect against ransomware. We had been hit by ransomware and a couple of our servers went down as a result and some staff computers were affected. We locked everything down very quickly. We were able to restore everything and we didn't lose any data. It took us about eight man-hours to restore the servers, restore services, and get everything back up and running, but it could have been a lot worse than it was. So we looked for a solution that bridged the gap because we have antivirus, we use Microsoft ATP and some other network security measures, but none of them… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Morphisec has enabled us to become a lot less paranoid when it comes to staff clicking on things or accessing things that they shouldn't that could infect the whole system. Our original ransomware attack that happened came from someone's Google drive and then just filtered on through that. It has put our minds at ease a lot more in running it. It's also another layer of security that has been proven to be effective for us."
  • "The dashboard is the area that requires the most improvement. We have about, I would say 5,500 computers currently, and searching through all of those takes some time to filter. So as soon as you apply the filter, it takes a few seconds. It crunches, it thinks, and then it brings up the clients that match."

What other advice do I have?

My advice would be to make sure that if there are a lot of computers, especially if they're remotely distributed, make sure they have some sort of solution to easily push out and deploy it to multiple clients. That's probably the biggest hurdle that I think a lot of people would have. And we had two solutions already in place for us in the past that worked and that were compatible. The nice thing is that they were able to provide a Microsoft MSI Installer so that you can even have it so that it pre deploys it while you're imaging your computers if you're using Microsoft for imaging. It's the…

Helps prove that all the security components I have in front of it are doing their jobs

What is our primary use case?

We are in healthcare and when the pandemic started we were really getting hammered with phishing attacks. Thankfully, none of them really got through or were successful, but the uptick in the attacks made me really concerned about the potential for the results of a successful ransomware attack. The way I've set up our world is as a bunch of different layers, from what I consider to be best-of-breed. We have a gateway with one company, we have endpoint protection with another company, we have firewalls and connectivity to the internet handled by another company. We also have a company that… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "I really like the integration with Microsoft Defender. In addition to having third-party endpoint protection, we're also enabling Defender... I like the reporting that we get from Defender, when it comes in. I like that it's one console showing both Morphisec and Defender where it provides me with full visibility into security events from Defender and Morphisec."
  • "If anything, tech support might be their weakest link. The process of getting someone involved sometimes takes a little time. It seems to me that they should have all the data they need to let me know whether an alert is legitimate or not, but they tend to need a lot of information from me to get to the bottom of something. It usually takes a little longer than I would expect."

What other advice do I have?

I don't want to think that everything I have put in place is perfect, but we haven't been hacked. I know we are being attacked. I see the logs that show we're probed every day and that we have phishing attacks that come through every day. But we haven't been attacked to a point where Morphisec has been hit as the last line of defense. It's a big deal for me just to have that visibility. We've had lots of reports of potential threats that Morphisec has handled, but we haven't had a single one, yet, that was a legitimate vulnerability that Morphisec stopped. I don't look at that as a negative at…

Anything that is suspected of being ransomeware gets blocked immediately on the machine

What is our primary use case?

We use version 4. It's not the absolute leading edge, but it was the first version that they supported with Linux. We use both environments to protect our corporate Windows assets and we also use them to protect our production Linux servers. We're using an on-prem option where we installed the Morphisec server on one of our own pieces. Our primary use case of Morphisec is to prevent in-memory attacks that would be conducted from ransomware. It's used for frontline and back-end protection. We have it installed on our front-facing web servers and on the backend database servers as well.

Pros and Cons

  • "Morphisec has absolutely helped save money on our security stack. The ransomware at the end of the day can cost organizations millions upon millions of dollars. Investing in tools like Morphisec is a great reduction in that cost. If I can spend $10,000 in a year to protect assets that could be ransomed for $20,000,000, that's definitely a bet that one should pursue. Morphisec absolutely it's worth the investment."
  • "It would be useful for them if they had some kind of network discovery. That kind of functionality I think would give IT administrators a little bit more confidence that they have 100 percent coverage, and it gives them something to audit against. Network discovery would be one area I would definitely suggest that they put some effort into."

What other advice do I have?

My advice would be to really consider the reality. It's not a question of if you're going to get attacked by ransomware, it's a question of when. And while this seems like something that would be easy to kick down the road, in terms of evaluating the overall battlefield if you will, a ransomware attack will take down your organization. There's no doubt about it. I would advise you to realize that with that inevitability and how much of your environment it can takedown or render useless. This would probably be one of the higher, first choices, and first endeavors you should make as you go into…

We have peace of mind that zero-day attacks are being prevented

What is our primary use case?

We do a multi-layered security approach. Morphisec is really our last layer of defense. It is our insurance policy. So, if a vulnerability gets through the user, network security layer, and antivirus, then Morphisec will then come into the fight. We have it deployed across all of our workstations and server environments. We have 800 workstation licenses and 75 server licenses. Right now, we are using 100% on-prem. We have just converted to Office 365. With that, we will be doing cloud hosting as well

Pros and Cons

  • "Morphisec makes use of deterministic attack prevention that doesn’t require investigation of security alerts. It changes the memory locations of where certain applications run. If you think of Excel, opening a PDF, running an Excel macro, or opening a webpage and clicking on a link, all of those actions run in a certain area of memory. Morphisec changes the memory locations of where those run."
  • "From a company standpoint, a little more interaction with the customers throughout the year might be beneficial. I would like check-ins from the Morphisec account executives about any type of Morphisec news as well as a bit more interaction with customers throughout the year to know if anything new is coming out with Morphisec, e.g., what they are working on in regards to their development roadmap. We tend not to get that up until the time that we go for a yearly renewal. So, we end up talking to people from Morphisec once a year, but it is usually at renewal time."

What other advice do I have?

Make sure you implement it on all machines, workstations, and servers. Don't buy it and miss some machines. Morphisec says they haven't been hacked. From the instances that I have seen when doing research, I find that to be true. Time will tell, but so far it has been working for us. We will be implementing the Morphisec Guard probably next month. We are just rolling out Microsoft Defender right now. We are evaluating it now. I think we have also started replacing our former antivirus. Windows Defender and Morphisec go hand in hand, at least from an antivirus standpoint. Morphisec was built to…

Clean UI and dashboard with cutting-edge technology behind it

What is our primary use case?

We've been using Morphisec as a layered defense in our security plan. We have beefy firewalls and another antivirus; Morphisec isn't technically an antivirus. It's a protection agent. It's one of the layers of our security plan. We use it to defend ourselves from any sort of CryptoLocker attacks or ransomware drive-bys, and it should catch auto-executes that come from ads. We haven't been breached, as far as I'm aware. We started with it on-prem and we had no complaints. It made sense. A cost analysis was done and on-premises cost less than the cloud, which is how things normally are. We used… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "What's valuable is really the whole kit and caboodle of the Morphisec agent. What it does is genius, in a way, until the bad guys get wise to it. You set it up and then you watch the dashboard. There isn't really much tinkering."
  • "We have only had four attacks in the last year, "attacks" being some benign PDF from a vendor that, for some reason, were triggered. There were no actual attacks. They were just four false positives, or something lowly like adware. There have been false positives with both the on-premises solution and the cloud solution."

What other advice do I have?

It sells itself, honestly. My advice to others looking into implementing Morphisec would be to use PDQ Deploy. The hardest part was getting all of the endpoints protected in a timely manner, but Morphisec assisted us with that. They suggested PDQ Deploy, which is a great tool. Implementation went so smoothly because of that. Morphisec provides full visibility into security events from Microsoft Defender and Morphisec in one dashboard, although we're not currently utilizing that feature. We're definitely interested in it. The reason we're not using it is because you have to purchase the…

Does a good job of reporting when it detects anomalous behavior

What is our primary use case?

We purchased Morphisec to protect our endpoints from anomalous behavior. The biggest use case would be to prevent ransomware, but also to detect other unnecessary programs running on devices. So, the use case has been endpoint protection, both for servers and endpoints, e.g., laptops and desktops. We do a multi-layered defense in-depth. They are our primary prevention at the endpoints for anomalous behavior. I would classify it as a preventative tool, since Morphisec blocks and prevents execution. So, I would put it at the preventative layer. We have agents on all of our endpoints and servers… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Morphisec makes it very easy for IT teams of any size to prevent breaches of critical systems because of the design of their tool. When we evaluated Morphisec, the CIO and I sat and listened. What attracted us to them is the fact that it stops activity at the point of detection. That saves a lot of time because now we are not investigating and trying to trace down what to turn off. We have already prevented it, which makes it very much safer and more secure."
  • "Morphisec is a venture startup. They are still early in their growth stage. They need to get mature on their customer support and on how they interface with system tools. For example, they need to get multifactor in place and an API for the major multi-factor systems, e.g., Okta, Duo, Ping, and Microsoft. They don't have them built in yet. They are working on them. It is just not there yet. Also, their stability, customer support, and processes need improvement, which is just part of maturity."

What other advice do I have?

Don't overthink it. Just do it. Follow the directions of Morphisec and go for it, but make sure you understand what your application stack is before you go full bore, so you don't create false positives. However, they are easy to work with in those terms. The reality is nobody ever gets to a single pane of glass or a single dashboard. Those claims are made by vendors, even Morphisec will make it. The problem is you have so many layers in your security stack that you will never get to a single pane of glass. So, I never have that as a requirement because I know it is not attainable. We do not…
