Easy to set up with good performance but needs a better user interface
Pros and Cons
  • "The initial setup is easy."
  • "We'd like to see a friendlier user interface."

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as antivirus, antimalware, et cetera. It's standard antivirus software. Every PC must have an antivirus on it in our organization.

What is most valuable?

It just has standard antivirus. It does what it needs to.

The solution offers good performance. 

Its stability has been good.

The initial setup is easy.

What needs improvement?

There is no real scalability.

We'd like to see a friendlier user interface.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is decent and the performance is good. There are no bugs or glitches and it doesn't crash or freeze. It's reliable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This solution does not scale. It's only installed on your PC and it has nothing to do with scale.

We have 2,000 users right now. We do plan to increase usage within a year.

How are customer service and support?

We have never reached out to technical support. I can't speak to how helpful or responsive they are. 

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

I've also used Microsoft Defender.

I'm not sure if the company used a different solution previously. I just joined this company one year and they had already started using Check Point.

How was the initial setup?

The installation process is very simple and straightforward. The deployment is quick. It only takes a few minutes. 

We have individuals in our department that can handle deployment and maintenance tasks. It only takes about 3% of our personnel.

What about the implementation team?

I handled the initial setup myself. I did not need the assistance of any consultants or integrators. 

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

Users need to pay a yearly licensing fee.

What other advice do I have?

We are using the latest version of the solution. 

I'm much more likely to suggest Microsoft Defender to other users. 

I'd rate the solution at a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
