What is most valuable?

A majority of its features are very good, well-designed, and programmed. Most of the machine learning has features where we took a deep analysis on kernel level scanning… more»

How has it helped my organization?

After deploying Traps, we saw the performance of the network improve by 65 to 70 percent. There was a drop in the latency rate over the application, when accessed via our… more»

What needs improvement?

There are some default policies which sometimes affect our applications and cause them to run around. In the hotel industry, we use a different type of data versus Oracle… more»

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

It is cost-effective compared to similar solutions. It fits for the small businesses through to the big businesses.

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

We were the victim of ransomware. Prior to that we were using an antivirus application from Sophos, which was not able to detect that ransomware engine which encrypted our… more»

What other advice do I have?

Overall, Traps is a very good application when you compare endpoint security solutions available in the market. You can see your value for your money. You can see the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have worked with different product lines: McAfee, ESET Endpoint Security, and Sophos. However, I find the Traps to be much better in comparison to all the other… more»

What is most valuable?

The interface is very easy to use. It's a very simple product to use in general. There is not a lot of administrative overhead.

How has it helped my organization?

It allowed us to move up from simple, traditional antivirus protection to next-generation without a big expense and without a steep learning curve.

What needs improvement?

The product could stand to be a bit more advanced. It's very simple. You don't have a lot of ability to customize properly. For example, it does not handle whitelisting… more»

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

For a next-generation antivirus, this solution is pretty inexpensive. Cylance is about twice the cost. Barkley is a much lower-priced product compared to others like… more»

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

Before we worked with this solution we used Sophos. Just the standard Sophos antivirus package. The reason why we switched is because there was a push to move toward… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would probably rate this product as a five out of ten. They'll have to add more features and they need to provide better support. As far as advice I'd give to others… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this solution we did look at Carbon Black — which is actually a preferable solution — but it was just too expensive so that's why we didn't choose that.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the antispam module, which comes in the bundle. It is very helpful and integrates with the local Outlook, or email, client. The HIPS is another good feature.

How has it helped my organization?

Once the initial setup and configuration is complete, you just have to sit back and monitor.

What needs improvement?

The initial setup needs improvement because you have to create quite a few policies, and sometimes it misses machines when it comes to discovery. This means that you have to manually deploy on some… more»

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

I have worked with Cylance. It does not have the problem where some machines are missed during the initial setup and discovery process, but it suffers from having too many false positives. I think it… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would not recommend this solution on a larger scale. To improve, they need to cut down the number of steps required for deployment. They also have to increase the availability of technical support… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

If I were in an environment that required a large-scale deployment then I would choose another solution over ESET.

What is most valuable?

From an application perspective, this solution is stable.

What needs improvement?

I feel that this product is more to bolster their marketing, rather than its use for actual synchronization. This solution is not able to deliver interprocess visibility when it comes to the endpoint, and this is something that needs to be… more»

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

Fortinet requires you to buy a lot of product in order for you to have proper protection.

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

I have worked with, and am familiar with many security solutions. These include Palo Alto, Fortinet, Malwarebytes, Sophos, and Carbon Black.

What other advice do I have?

When it comes to Fortinet, the users are not a big fan of their current model. Bit by bit, they pull you into to buying the entire security fabric. You have to buy a lot of product, and a lot of licenses, to enable all of the features which… more»

IT Manager at voluntis
Jul 23 2019

What is most valuable?

The features that are most useful are the simplicity of deploying the package and the cryptosystem for managing all the situations on the computer.

What needs improvement?

At the moment, I do not have enough experience with the solution to know what needs to be improved. The cryptosystem could be improved a bit.

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

Before using Bitdefender, we were using Sophos. It's a very similar system to other firewall appliances. It was a full appliance with everything on it, and we decided to not switch but split all the systems from Sophos to different… more»

What other advice do I have?

At the moment everything is good for me. It's really simple to use it. I would rate this solution nine out of 10.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing the platform we evaluated other technologies like Palo Alto Traps. It was a bit different. We chose our solution because it was very simple to use, to deploy, and it was really good for our needs.
