Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It also gives the vulnerability status according to the versions you have selected. Let's say you have Google Chrome. It mentions the versions it has, and it updates. Within two hours of an update, it is reflected in the dashboard. That's really nice to have.""The basic features are okay and I'm satisfied with the Defender.""I would say that 90% of the spam and phishing attack emails get blocked right off the bat.""The most valuable feature is the integration. It's a single console, so we don't have to switch around between multiple products. Another valuable feature is the ease of operations and maintenance.""The most valuable feature of Microsoft Defender for Office 365 is the ease of use.""Microsoft Defender for Office 365 is a stable solution.""Does a thorough job of examining email and URLs for malicious content.""Some of the valuable features on the email side are anti-phishing, anti-malware, and Safe Links."

"The Check Point SandBlast Network gives us incredibly good features.""Threat extraction can help us to remove malicious content from documents by converting them to PDF.""The Check Point SandBlast Network uses caching and static analysis to actually reduce the time it takes to scan and isolate the same file for incoming data compromises.""The sandbox is able to scan files without adding a delay or compromising productivity.""Very few false positives are detected, which gives the confidence to raise flags when needed, ensuring the IT department is aware of threats and acting fast.""It shares the information of all its devices, this generates more robust perimeter security in addition to generating trust of the company with the manufacturer to prevent threats.""Check Point SandBlast is best in terms of the extraction function. Customers can get a clean firewall with extraction after I've cleaned and scanned it from Check Point. It's easy for users, too.""The most valuable feature of Check Point SandBlast Network is the sandboxing of PDF and Microsoft system files."

"It has been scalable.""It can scale from 100 to 10,000. There's no problem with the scalability."

More Digital Guardian Pros →

Cons
"In some situations, it has not been able to pick impersonated emails having no attachments. Technical support definitely has a scope for improvement.""It would be better if it were more scalable. It depends on the architecture, but we would like to make it more scalable for both data centers.""I'd like some additional features any product can give me to protect our environment in a better way.""This product's effectiveness could be improved, in terms of detecting unwanted spam or even malware between the emails, compared to other products.""The custom alerts have to improve a lot.""Too many false positives and lacks an accurate capability to detect malicious SharePoint sites.""Configuration requires going to a lot of places rather than just accessing one tab.""We are always looking for others tools to increase automation on tasks. There can be better integration with other solutions, such as PowerPoint and email."

More Microsoft Defender for Office 365 Cons →

"There should be some customized price reductions in the offered packages.""It would be very good for Check Point to improve its support.""EDR and EPM solutions like Carbon Black or CyberArk have integrations with the cloud version of Sandblast, however, there must be on-premise Sandblast options also.""We have noticed a slight performance hit when the Threat Emulation and Extraction features were enabled, but the protection trade-off is worth it for us.""When you have to scan emails that come with attachments, it takes a long time to examine them, which causes other emails not to be scanned, which can cause some danger to our organization.""Check Point SandBlast Network can improve the integration with third-party vendors, such as EDR or CRM products. For example, IBM Curator.""The guides or best practices of Check Point are difficult to find for the client. Therefore, it is sometimes difficult to make better implementations.""There is a limit on the number of files that can be scanned in real-time, which could lead to us being found with our guard down on a high-traffic day."

More Check Point SandBlast Network Cons →

"The initial setup is a bit more complex than other solutions.""There are a lot of issues with the current version of the Endpoint agent. It's not stable, it's resource-consuming, and there are some performance issues. If they could improve the stability of the agent it would be great."

  • "From the pricing point of view, like any other product in the market, there is scope for negotiation."

  • "Microsoft Defender for Office 365 is an add-on to the Office license. Many customers are purchasing this solution."
