What is most valuable?

They're very good at what they do. As far as the product is, in its current state, I don't have any complaints at all right now. They do a quarterly review with us, just so they can let us know how… more »

What needs improvement?

If an operating system is stopped by support by the original vendor like Microsoft, or maybe Apple, within a few weeks, CrowdStrike will also decide they no longer support it, and they kind of move… more »

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

I'm not sure of the exact cost of the solution. That's a detail our finance department handles.

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

Originally, we had Webroot. We used to get, every so often, a slew of viruses that would get through the cracks. I don't know if Webroot's definition didn't get updated in a timely manner or if they… more »

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers. We don't have a business relationship with the company. I'm not sure which version of the solution we're using. The last time I checked, it was version 5.6. It is up-to-date… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did research on Cylance. We looked at Norton as well. We went through a bunch of products and we decided CrowdStrike was probably the most advanced threat protection at that time, which was three… more »

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?

I would say that the most valuable features are the cloud administration and the strength of the ransomware protection.

What needs improvement?

The one thing that I think probably needs the most attention with this product is the technical support. Some of our customers are starting to complain about that. It is a good product, generally. I can not really give it any criticism or go on about missing or broken features. I have got nothing to… more »

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

Intercept X for endpoints is around $35 per user per year. The server version is $95 per server per year.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise anybody who is using a Sophos firewall and is looking to migrate to another solution to give Intercept X the serious consideration it deserves because the Sophos firewall integrates well with the Intercept X solution and that is an advantage. On a scale from one to ten (where one is… more »

What is most valuable?

The solution has a good management interface. The fact that we are able to successfully deploy it on all the endpoints and the client has not had any recurrence of a ransomware event has been very good. It means that it's doing what it's… more »

How has it helped my organization?

The solution was successfully deployed and so far has been able to stop all ransomware attacks, which has been extremely beneficial to the organization. The IT manager is also able to manage the solution easily. Our observation is that the… more »

What needs improvement?

Overall, I haven't found any ways the solution lacks in features or usability.

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

In terms of licensing, the solution is certainly comparable to other choices. I would say they're comparable to Sophos or Symantec among others. They'd be very close to each other price-wise. I don't think they're cheaper; I believe they're… more »

What other advice do I have?

We've never resold Malwarebytes. We've just worked with customers that had already begun using it. This is one of the best solutions for ransomware. It deploys as one would expect, and it manages as one would hope. It's perfectly fine for… more »
