Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"We are protecting all our workstations.""It provides good protection from ransomware and malware attacks. It is very good as compared to other products. If any threat is there, their support is very good. They immediately respond to the users and do a follow-up. They call us and also provide email support.""The feature that I have found most valuable is that the configuration and the usage of the product are not so complicated. For people responsible for using this infrastructure for the first line of workstation monitoring, it's quite easy to use.""The product is very easy to use. Customers really appreciate that.""I have found the continued support and pretty much all the features to be valuable. They all stand out as being positive. It continues to detect unusual activity when it's supposed to, and so far we haven't had any issues.""It's transparent, so it's not something where every user has to press a button to download or do the thing. It is centralized, in fact. Personally, I use Malwarebytes and other tools, which are fine for home use. Cynet is also relatively silent in terms of operation, except when it's required to act.""The most valuable feature is the monitored support behind it.""The dashboard is beautiful, overall easy of use, and the UBA and NBA features are valued."

Cons
"Compliance reports need to improve.""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.""Could have better integration with other security applications.""In terms of what could be improved, I would say the usability of this product for new threats. Meaning, not everything which is new is properly seen by the product and not all the required actions are taken.""Linux servers are not supported.""The solution just needs to keep maturing and they need to keep up with the threat landscape to ensure they're protecting clients well as time passes.""A support center in Asia is needed.""The reporting is a little weak and could be improved. The other downside is that Cynet does not use the local time zone. It's based off of Greenwich Mean Time."
