Provides streamlined deployment, intuitive usability, quick response times, high scalability, excellent stability and responsive support making it a comprehensive and reliable cybersecurity option
I like Cynet because, in my experience, it's incredibly fast and intuitive. The interface is exceptionally clear and easy to understand. The most critical function of the product for maintaining our cybersecurity environment is the rapid deployment of policies to the agents. This is particularly crucial considering our diverse workforce, with many employees working remotely or directly at customer sites. Unlike other solutions that might not be as cloud-based or easy to manage, Cynet excels in swiftly and accurately sending policies to the agents. This capability has been immensely valuable, especially during times when our developers are heavily engaged across multiple customer projects. With Cynet, we've experienced minimal issues with agents failing to receive or apply policies, ensuring that our security measures are consistently and promptly implemented across the board.

Quotes from Members

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

Pros

"Cynet is light and transparent when downloaded. The product's data aggregation is also valuable since you can see everything you need on a page."
"In terms of incident response, Cynet can contain attacks, offer a trial period to customers, and uninstall if not continued. The most valuable aspect is its integration capabilities, covering endpoints and network data for a comprehensive view of threats."
"We are protecting all our workstations."
"The initial setup is very fast and very easy."
"The product has valuable front-end features."
"A reliable security system that automatically quarantines anything suspicious."
"I like the Cynet Correlator™ feature."
"The level of automation is very good because the majority of the time, it blocks the attacks without requiring anything from our side. The technicians don't have to do anything. They are just alerted about what happened. So, the user intelligence works quite well."
"First of all, I like that it's perfect against malware threats and behavior analysis along with signature analysis. That's the key point for me."
"There is plenty of features that make the solution work very well."
"The stability has been good."
"It offers very good security protection."
"The policies are easy to make and controlled by the Kaspersky Administrative Security Center, which comes at no additional costs."
"It's a user-friendly solution."
"Our clients are using the advanced options, and they're quite comfortable with this solution because they didn't have any problems. It was easy to integrate it with Active Directory. It is fast and easy to use. It has all the required features."
"The reporting feature is good. Also, the device control is good."
 

Cons

"The inability to add contact information inside the Cynet is also an issue because it makes things more complicated. I would like to have a simple feature to enter a contact name and number for the person taking care of that unit or that server."
"It is an endpoint agent, but they don't have a probe for checking the network traffic. They could improve from this point of view."
"Management of the console could be simplified and made more user-friendly because right now it's not very easy to use."
"I think the technical support could be better."
"One thing to note is that I highly recommend adding a deep learning-based prevention environment as an additional layer to Cynet. However, I always advise my customers to start with Cynet or XDR, for example, and then focus on the people, technology, and processes involved. This is the best approach to ensure that you are not breached with ransomware. While Cynet can prevent most attacks, there have been cases where ransomware has been quicker than Cynet's detection capabilities. In these situations, an additional tool is necessary to ensure complete protection, and that is what I sell as well."
"Increased application for SOAR abilities across interconnected devices would be a welcome improvement."
"There could be more customization options and detailed information provided in the reports."
"Cynet fails to deploy the same technology in mobile devices."
"Data loss prevention (DLP) in email security."
"It's does not have the architecture or structure to scale up."
"The GUI mode in the product is an area with certain shortcomings since it looks old with the graphics provided by Kaspersky."
"I would like for Kaspersky to generate reports when it detects issues such as malware."
"Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business’s interface could be easier to understand when displaying the activities during configuration processes."
"The GUI of the product is too basic, making it an area where improvements are required."
"I rate the pricing five out of ten."
"The solution could improve by having some integration with other vendors."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"It is extremely affordable. I'll give it a five out of five in terms of price. It was half the cost of the next closest competitor, and the competitor didn't provide SOC services."
"There is an extra cost if you want the support of Cynet."
"Our billing is on a quarterly basis, but they have monthly or annual billing availability."
"I don't have specific information about integration capabilities or licensing costs."
"It costs 18,000 per year, but we have the whole package with not only Cynet but also the Perception Point for emails. There are also some small security courses for our users."
"it's not cheap, but I would rate it a three out of ten. If one is cheap and ten is expensive."
"The price is very competitive."
"We purchase the product’s yearly license."
"It's a little more expensive compared to other competitors like Symantec."
"I don't remember exactly what the licenses cost, but it's not too expensive. It's affordable, especially when you are dealing with on-prem. However, I don't know about the new prices because we are in the process of buying support."
"The pricing is a bit more expensive than other products."
"Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business is an expensive solution."
"The cost of the solution is approximately $31,000 for three years."
"The licensing cost can be about $1,300 per year."
"The tool is expensive."
"The solution requires a license and there are different license packages depending on the number of users you need."
