Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution is very easy to use. All you have to do is to assign the license to the end-user and it's done. The customer will only have the feature activated, and the solution will monitor the emails to determine if they are a threat or not.""Does a thorough job of examining email and URLs for malicious content.""Microsoft Defender for Office 365 is a stable solution.""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.""Safe attachments, safe links, policies, and the ability to protect from zero-day threats are the most valuable features.""The deployment capability is a great feature.""The most valuable feature of Microsoft Defender for Office 365 is the ease of use.""The good part is that you don't have to configure it, which is very convenient."

"The dynamic behavior analysis is excellent. We have many attacks caught by the FortiSandbox as zero-day attacks. Additionally, the administration is simple and can be customized to fit your companies needs.""Overall, it works fine. Its interface is also fine.""The solution is easy to manage.""Compared to other solutions, it's easy to configure and implement because of the templates. The timing of scanning files is faster.""Fortinet FortiSandbox is scalable.""Integration is one of the solution's most valuable aspects. You can integrate even third-party solutions so that they can send the information or files they quarantine through the FortiSandbox""The scanner office document as well as PDF are useful. The most valuable thing is that you can emulate different operating systems without having the danger of getting something infected. It emulates several operating systems, and as a result, you either get the file or you don't get the file."

"The most valuable feature is the cloud-based protection against zero-day malware attacks.""Remote access is excellent.""The graphic user interface of Palo Alto is good and it's easy to configure.""What I like about Palo Alto is that it is a complete product, with everything in it.""It gives a more accurate assessment of a virus in terms of whether it's truly a virus, malware, or a false positive. We have some legacy software that could pop up as being something that is malware. WildFire goes through and inspects it, and then it comes back and lets us know if it's a false positive. Usually, when it finds out that it's not a virus, it lets us know that it's benign, and it can exclude it from that scan, which means I don't even have to worry about that one popping up anymore.""The backup is the best feature.""The most valuable features of this solution are sandbox capabilities.""The solution is easy to use and the Panorama feature is good. The software management or the malware blocking and some authentication management system are good."

Cons
"This product's effectiveness could be improved, in terms of detecting unwanted spam or even malware between the emails, compared to other products.""We need a separate license and we don't know how to get the license that is required.""There needs to be an improvement in integrating the product to work across multiple operating systems, and to have better support for non-Microsoft file types.""The custom alerts have to improve a lot.""In some situations, it has not been able to pick impersonated emails having no attachments. Technical support definitely has a scope for improvement.""The visibility for the weaknesses in the system and unauthorized access can be improved.""I'd like some additional features any product can give me to protect our environment in a better way.""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 could be more templates and a higher number of simulated VMs to configure more use cases. Sometimes we need to configure many use cases in many different environments, and if the number of VMs that we configure is limited, we have to remove some and reconfigure the environment if we need another environment.""The reporting tools could be improved in Fortinet FortiSandbox.""The initial setup is not too complex but could be easier.""If you were to compare prices between vendors and manufacturers, you would see that the lowest equipment in the Sandbox line is quite expensive for a new customer.""I don't know if it is viable to do an improvement like this. When there are passwords in the password-protected files, it can't scan them or do things like this. I don't know if an algorithm or something else could make it better. Nowadays, many legitimate office documents have passwords.""If we can have more dashboards, it would be good.""The use cases in Fortinet FortiSandbox are not good. It is difficult to upload a custom VM for Fortinet FortiSandbox. The integration of Fortinet FortiSandbox with other Fortinet or FortiGate firewalls is not good. VMs are already installed in the hardware and are working fine, but we tried to approve the custom VM many times but did not succeed."

More Fortinet FortiSandbox Cons →

"The system performance degrades after the solution has been deployed for some time. The data that it gives us becomes a little bit slow. When you try to get some data for troubleshooting, it seems like it's working hard to extract that data.""The configuration should be made a little bit easier. I understand why it is as it is, but there should be a way to make it easier from the user side.""I don't think it needs to improve anything, except maybe the speed to deploy the changes.""The only problem with this solution is the cost. It's expensive.""It's not really their problem, it's a problem across the board. There will always be problems with interrupted traffic. We have to set it up where we're playing a middle man game where we're stripping it out, looking at it, and then putting it back together and sending it on its way. That requires CPU cycles. And there's some overhead with that.""They can keep on doing more updates. As new malware and viruses are coming out, they can make sure that WildFire is up to date.""Our main concern is that everything has to be synced with the WildFire Cloud and has to be checked through the subscription.""In the future, Palo Alto could reduce the time it takes to process the file."
