"It's a great threat intelligence source for us, providing alerts for things it detects on the network and on the machines. We've used it often when there is a potential incident to see what was done on a computer. That works quite nicely because you can see everything that the user has done..."
"We can automate routine tasks and write scripts to carry out difficult tasks, which makes things easier for us."
"I like the easy integration and advanced possibilities. We can implement it at customer sites in a few clicks, but we can also dive deep and drill down to extended features. There's a very good starting point to get into this product and all the features from Defender."
"Having a single pane of glass for all Microsoft security services makes everything much easier. A security analyst can go to a single portal and see everything in one view. The integration of everything into one portal is a huge benefit."
"Setting up Microsoft 365 Defender is easy. It's a user-friendly solution that provides threat protection. It has good stability and scalability."
"In Microsoft 365 vendor products, monitoring and connectivity across all Microsoft and third-party connectors enable viewing of all activity within those environments."
"We can use Defender to block and monitor for security purposes without needing multiple other products to do different tasks."
"Within advanced threat hunting, the tables that have already been defined by Microsoft are helpful. In the advanced threat hunting tab, there were different tables, and one of the tables was related to device info, device alert, and device events. That was very helpful. Another feature that I liked but didn't have access to was deep analysis."
"Cynet is unique in that it has almost everything included and it was built up from the ground, instead of a bundle of purchased and composed modules. It gives you easier very good visibility than Sentinel One as well as a lower maintenance burden."
"I like that you can implement it in the managed service portfolio."
"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."
"A reliable security system that automatically quarantines anything suspicious."
"Its ability to revert back from a previous state is quite notable. This feature is particularly valuable because, for maintaining integrity, it can inspect the socket for any firewall modifications. In practice, it allows us to return to a previous configuration when everything was functioning correctly."
"The most valuable aspect of this solution is that it is a complete solution, which makes cyber security very free and almost perfect. There is no such thing as perfect cyber security, but as far as it can go, sign it comes close to being perfect and holistic. Cynet is always comprehensive from the perspective of functionality, as well as from the standpoint that it encompasses not only technology but also processes and people. The triad of people, processes, and technology is crucial and should always be in place. To my knowledge, no other product or platform combines all three components into one, but Cynet does."
"I like the Cynet Correlator™ feature."
"The visibility it gives is excellent."
"SentinelOne is very simple to install and very simple to manage. It's very aggressive, so it does protection well, and it seems to be stopping attacks that other solutions cannot."
"The most valuable feature of SentinelOne is the EDR functionality. We are protected against threats, such as ransomware."
"The rollback feature is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"The remediation and rollback features are pretty impressive."
"Most of the features are valuable. As a system integrator, agent deployment is valuable. It also fits the requirements of most of the clients."
"SentinelOne is a stable solution."
"The most valuble feature of SentinelOne Singularity Complete is the recovery and zero-day detection."
"Its ability to interact with other third-party tools has been great for us. It can work through APIs and partners and integrate well."
"Defender also lacks automated detection and response. You need to resolve issues manually. You can manage multiple Microsoft security products from a single portal, and all your security recommendations are in one place. It's easy to understand and manage. However, I wouldn't say Defender is a single pane of glass. You still need to switch between all of the available Microsoft tools. You can see all the alerts in one panel, but you can't automate remediation."
"I would like more of the features in Defender for 365 to be included in the smaller licenses. Even if I buy a small license and don't need everything, security shouldn't be a question. Security is one of the main aspects of all projects from our side, so it would be nice to have more features in the smaller licenses."
"A simple dashboard without having to use MS Sentinel would be a welcome improvement."
"There is definitely scope for improvement in the automation area. Because the solution is a SaaS platform, we don't have the overall ability to automate stuff.... There is no direct way to go ahead because it's a SaaS platform."
"When discussing the secure score, which includes overviews and recommended actions, some of these recommended actions are not applicable to us, particularly those related to Microsoft Internet Explorer, which we do not use in any of our environments."
"I personally have not seen much evidence of how Defender can enhance the story of zero trust for enterprises."
"Microsoft tends to provide too many features, which makes the solution prone to bugs."
"There should be better information for experts on features in the solution. What I see when reading about features in Microsoft 365 Defender is that it is always general information. If Microsoft could go deeper into details for the experts about how to use the tools, usage of it would be more familiar and it would be easier to use."
"Management of the console could be simplified and made more user-friendly because right now it's not very easy to use."
"Cynet fails to deploy the same technology in mobile devices."
"SIEM - Although with their Centralised Log Management Cynet has created the basis for SIEM functionality, this is to be expanded in the near future."
"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."
"Increased application for SOAR abilities across interconnected devices would be a welcome improvement."
"There are some shortcomings in Cynet's integration capabilities that need improvement."
"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."
"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."
"The solution should include USB blocking for specific machines."
"The stability of SentinelOne should be improved."
"The grouping feature needs improvement."
"The ease of use can be better in Deep Visibility. It is not always the easiest. If I have not been in there in the Deep Visibility module for a long time, I do not always find it that easy to use. I tend to go and have to consult the help quite often if I have not been in there a long time."
"The delay in updating inventory is ten minutes. If it can be improved, it will help a lot."
"SentinelOne's customer support is sluggish and frequently fails to deliver sufficient assistance."
"SentinelOne should include Ranger Pro out of the box with Singularity Complete."
"The channel policy has room for improvement."
