Provides good protection and works well when configured correctly
It works well as long as you set it right. You have to be careful with Bitdefender. It's different when you use it on laptops and desktops, but on servers, it's not the same. You need to make proper settings on it for what you ought to exclude. The problems it was causing were mainly because they didn't set it up properly. When you start putting it on things, you have to make sure you don't include certain things and that you make proper rules and settings to say go scan this or that. When you're installing anything like this on desktops, laptops, servers, or anything else, you want to make sure that you have done the research first and that you know what to include or exclude. Overall, I'd rate it an eight out of ten.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"The protection that it provides is valuable because the biggest problem that people and companies have been seeing in the last two or three years is scams and everything like that."
"The tool's most valuable feature is ransomware protection. Its integration with other Sophos security products is good, and the AI features have made it an efficient product."
 

Cons

"I remember when they first pushed it to the DBM server, my backup server at the time, it caused a lot of issues because they were supposed to exclude all the folders that they were backing up to and had the storage. I got hold of the security group and asked them to uninstall it. We uninstalled it, ran a script, and then it fixed the problem."
"I expect an improvement with mobile integration. I want mobile devices to have better security, like Sophos Home's total security. Users often need to connect to a cloud platform to manage or change settings, which can be difficult. To improve this, providing minimal local settings could help users."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"It was included in the account that we had. We didn't have to pay for it."
