Provides accurate information, quick analysis from the endpoint perspective, and quick identification of any potential malware

What is our primary use case?

We use the on-premise deployment model of this solution. Our primary use case of this solution is for malware detection and for reconstruction during the incident and forensic analysis.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's fully scalable. There is no limit. Of course, the license limits per day the number of terabytes. In my opinion, it's very flexible."
  • "They should implement algorithms to digest that data and produce additional, more advanced reporting, alerting and support of internal security teams."

What other advice do I have?

If it's possible, ask for help from primary support to help you implement at the very beginning with the fundamental alert or detection rules. This is my best advice for a customer regardless of the size and scope of the implementation. Use the support to help you with the implementation process. I would rate it an eight out of ten.

Good pricing, an easy installation process and excellent technical support

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for scanning files and emails and things of that nature.

Pros and Cons

  • "The pricing, if compared to other products, is cheap."
  • "The management of the solution isn't as clear as it could be. They could adjust that to make it a better product."

What other advice do I have?

We use the solution every day. Often, for reports, if anything is detected, we check it out. We're logging into the system at least once a day. I support the product and I would recommend the solution. I'd rate it nine out of ten.
