Lighter with good stability and pretty good technical support
It's still not lightweight enough and not as light as they claim to be with the McAfee area of a next-gen AV. They can do some improvements along that line. There needs to be some improvement around the white-listing or black-listing. The product could improve aspects around the removal of blacklisted applications, et cetera. This was an exercise to centralize the AV cell, and that's how we ended up upgrading. The truth, however, is that I was really looking for something much more advanced with user behavior analytics and some AI features that the other competitor's next-gen AV does offer. It is okay for what it's doing now, however, it's not the ultimate software. There are some components on the cloud that should also reside in the on-prem deployment models but don't. They should ensure they are doing parallel development for cloud and on-prem when they are doing R&D.

Quotes from Members

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


"Reporting is great, it is easy to do a quick search through 45 days of data for something of interest."
"After rack and stack, devices were up and running base configurations within two hours. As with any IPS, tuning is required to stop false positives. This is no different, but the ease of use of the interface allowed my team to start making adjustments within a few hours."
"It ensures the stability of network behavior across various aspects of our network and offers responsive capabilities to address incidents promptly"
"The initial setup is very straightforward. The deployment of the server doesn't take so long; about a day or two max."
"Compared to similar solutions, it's quite scalable. You just need to add more storage to scale-up."
"It has also improved our hunt ability with quick search tools, to zone in on malware or other anomalies. It is able to link items to incidents from other consoles, and works natively with the SIEM."
"The solution's technical support is perfect, so I rate the technical support a ten out of ten"
"It has a rating system now so you can rate things up or down, depending on your environment. This means alerting can be customized, yet still pick up anomalies."
"It's a little lighter compared to the older version, which was mostly signature-based."
"We are hoping to automate detection and response and take advantage of user behavior analytics, given that we are working from home. About half of our workers are still remote, so Active Response gives us that visibility and lets us automate a number of those events."
"The solution is scalable."


"Configuration, in terms of building the collector and communicating with endpoints, is complex."
"The interface bug needs to be squashed once and for all. This has been the predominant issue with an otherwise stellar product. It reboots itself unscheduled, about once a month, due to a memory buffer flaw in the interface."
"The reports in the endpoint area of Elevate can be improved."
"I encounter difficulty removing certain entries in behavior or alerts; likewise, I am unable to add specific calls."
"We position the solution as an antivirus, but this part of the solution needs improvement. They need to generally enhance the features that they have, rather than adding anything new."
"Fidelis Endpoint is an expensive product making it one of its shortcomings that needs improvement."
"There is room for improvement in email security. It's a security issue. If you're aiming for XDR, covering the entire threat landscape is crucial."
"I also expected Active Response 's user interface to be much more analytical."
"While the product is good, we are currently facing support issues."
"There are some components on the cloud that should also reside in the on-prem deployment models but don't."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"Fidelis Endpoint is an expensive product. My company makes yearly payments toward the licensing cost of the solution."
"It's somehow expensive. From one to ten, I would rate it a five. They need to improve the prices. It's very high."
"It's quite expensive but we can customize it to reduce the price."
"You license by the number of days of logs you need to maintain visibility for. Forty-five days is a good solid number for a company with around a 10k user base."
"Our costs were somewhere around $600K in Trinidad dollars, which might be about $100K US. We have the ETP plus the EDR. Our recent renewal was 1800 licenses as opposed to the full amount. Our transaction cost was about $600K Trinidad dollars, which is somewhere around $90-100K US."
