Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It is incredibly efficient for our engineering team because Huntress provides all the information needed to fix issues, not just flag them.""I have found it valuable that this solution is always there and always armed.""Foothold detection is a valuable feature, acting as a valuable second set of eyes for both us and our clients.""The EDR product is simple to install. It is low maintenance. All the alerts go to Huntress first, and their analyst team reviews them and sends actionable things our way.""Scalability-wise, I rate the solution a ten out of ten...I rate the technical support a ten out of ten.""While threat hunting is undoubtedly the most valuable feature, the combination of IP scanning, foothold identification, and canary monitoring has also proven to be incredibly beneficial.""Huntress' best feature is the threat-hunting expertise that is part of their 24/7 SOC.""We don’t have the required staff to watch the issues that are happening. It is good to have a team from Huntress who can watch the logs 24/7. The tool’s automatic remediation is also fantastic. The solution’s interface is also nice and easy to use. The Huntress team saves us time by going through the issues."

Cons
"Huntress' Process Insights feature could benefit from more robust search and filtering capabilities.""I am anxiously watching to see how they evolve their MDR for Office 365. If anything, I would like more automated remediation capabilities in their MDR for Office 365.""In the next release, I'd like to see more intuitive dashboards.""The solution's UI is an area with certain shortcomings that need improvement.""The application control system could benefit from improvements in identifying and managing both whitelisted and blacklisted applications.""I'd like Huntress to implement a component that can analyze network traffic for specific sites.""The Huntress is not a standalone solution. It really needs to be used with something else such as Microsoft Defender or another antivirus solution. It would be nice to see the product fleshed out by the Huntress team and include the antivirus solution part as well. I want it to be a full-fledged XDR product. It would push the tool to a higher price range but it would be nice to see the fleshed out features. I want them to integrate more features from the XDR realm.""I would like the API to be a little better. They are getting there."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The tool’s price is very good. You just need to pay for the standard license. However, you need to pay the additional cost for Microsoft Defender."
  • "I rate the product's price a five or six on a scale of one to ten, where one is cheap, and ten is expensive since it is a fairly priced product."
  • "The pricing is competitive, in line with Huntress's offerings, and aligns well with our business model."
  • "It is simple. It is reasonable. They raised my prices this year. We never like price increases, but they continue to add value, so we just keep adding agents as we grow and as our clients grow."
  • "While other options have emerged since Huntress' arrival, I believe it still offers the best value for the features and services it provides."
  • "Huntress is priced fairly for the services and value it provides."
  • "It is fair. They provide good value for the product that they deliver. I have had one price increase in the entire time I have used them. They added a bunch of features and then said that they have to increase our price a little bit. That is a fair way to handle it."
