We performed a comparison between Malwarebytes and SentinelOne based on our users’ reviews in four categories. After reading the collected data, you can find our conclusion below.
Comparison Results: SentinelOne, which is generally considered one of the leaders in endpoint security, comes out on top in this comparison. Users say it is a robust next-generation tool that uses intuitive AI and machine learning. SentinelOne is equally effective with most every OS in the marketplace today and can support legacy and new environments too. Users say Malwarebytes lacks basic automation and AI processes, which are commonplace in most endpoint security solutions today. Many processes rely on manual follow-up, which makes the tool cumbersome and slow.
"The features that I have found most valuable are the ability to customize it and to reduce its size. It lets you run in a very small window in terms of memory and resources on legacy cash registers."
"The price is low and quite competitive with others."
"The product detects and blocks threats and is more proactive than firewalls."
"Fortinet FortiEDR's firewalling, rule creation, monitoring, and inspection profiles are great."
"The setup is pretty simple."
"Fortinet is very user-friendly for customers."
"I like FortiClient EMS. FortiEDR has a lot of great features like lockdown mode, remote wipes, and encryption. I can set malware outbreak policies and controls for detecting abnormalities. You can also simulate phishing attacks."
"The stability is very good."
"The central management of devices from different sites is a very good feature; this has made them much easier to manage."
"I was very satisfied with Malwarebytes in terms of its antivirus abilities."
"Malwarebytes is a comprehensive solution for keeping endpoints safe and secure from intruders, viruses, malware and so on."
"Being able to cloud manage it from just a cloud login is valuable. We can get to it from anywhere, which is really helpful. The fact that we can remediate from the cloud console is one of our favorite features."
"Provides successful ransomware shut down operations."
"The most valuable features of Malwarebytes are the agents, user experience, efficiency of the findings, and MDR features."
"The product keeps our company safe."
"The most valuable features of the solution are malware scanning and malware removal."
"Singularity's rollback feature is one of the primary reasons we bought the product. If there's an attack on the machine, the system can automatically roll back the data and the hard drive of the machine that was attacked."
"SentinelOne has helped us to improve our security by fine-tuning our current use cases and creating new ones."
"The protection and management provided by SentinelOne is good."
"Scalable endpoint protection solution that takes seconds to set up per device. It has a rollback feature and offers good technical support."
"The rollback feature is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"SentinelOne's auto-rollback feature is the most valuable."
"The ability to get queries by pressing the "tab" button is a plus for SentinelOne."
"It gives you good visibility of any threats or vulnerabilities that you might have on your network."
"I would like the solution to extend beyond endpoint protection and include other attack surfaces such as other network components."
"We'd like to see more one-to-one product presentations for the distribution channels."
"To improve Fortinet, we need to see more features and technology areas at the endpoint level introduced."
"The EDR console should have more extensive reporting. You shouldn't need to purchase FortiAnalyzer. It should be included in the EDR part. The security adviser cloud platform could be improved with more options for exclusive or intensive rules for devices."
"I haven't seen the use of AI in the solution."
"The support needs improvement."
"ZTNA can improve latency."
"The only minor concern is occasional interference with desired programs."
"The stability and performance of the solution are areas with shortcomings that need improvement."
"Malwarebytes should improve its mobile compatibility."
"Malwarebytes is too simplistic. From a SOC IR perspective, it doesn't give you very much data around it. It doesn't tie things or provide SHA-1 and SHA-256 detection information, which makes it hard to do an additional investigation."
"We had a little performance problem with the solution, but that's been resolved. Since then, it's been running well."
"The product is a little bit more expensive than the other brands."
"They could come up with better reporting capabilities."
"It's not good in search hunting."
"Strictly in terms of cyber security, the release cycle should be quarterly, at most. It shouldn't be more frequent than that because, for one thing, keeping up with tech support is difficult."
"They should train their own people so that they can train us better. The theory is good."
"The solution can use up a lot of resources when scanning. It would be ideal if it was lighter."
"One of the things they could do is extend the product range to include Android and iPhone so that you could have the app on your phone as well. There is probably something going on there with that, but that's something that they're lacking at the moment. For instance, if I was to have to recommend a client to protect their phone, I'd have to recommend Norton or something else. I don't have an answer within the SentinelOne solution."
"The setup process could be improved."
"We need to analyze the threats and make decisions based on that, so the analytics could be better at analyzing exactly where the threats are coming from."
"The channel policy has room for improvement."
"I would have liked the dashboard to be more user-friendly."
"The biggest thing for me in terms of improvements is the online console. There are frequent updates, and sometimes we'll get a little agitated getting signed in."

Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by Fortinet FortiEDR users.
An Owner at a security firm says, "The features that I have found most valuable are the ability to customize it and to reduce its size. It lets you run in a very small window in terms of memory and resources on legacy cash registers. The customer has literally about 800 cash registers. That was the use case for Fortinet FortiEDR - to get that down into a tiny space. The only way to do that was to use this product because it had that ability to unbundle services that were a surplus.”
Chandan M., Chief Technical Officer at Provision Technologies LLP, mentions, “The ease of deployment and configuration is valuable. It's very easy compared to other vendors like Sophos. Sophos' configuration is complex. Fortinet is a lot easier to understand. You don't need a lot of admin knowledge to do the configuration.” He also adds, “The security is also very good and the firewall response is good.”
Harpreet S., Information Technology Support Specialist at Chemtrade Logistics, explains, "It notifies us if there's any suspicious file on any PC. If any execution or similar kind of thing is happening, it just alerts us. It doesn't only alert. It also blocks the execution until we allow it. We check whether the execution is legitimate or not, and then approve it or keep it blocked. This gives us a little bit of control over this mechanism. Fortinet FortiEDR is also very straightforward and easy to maintain."
DeAndre V., Senior Network Administrator at a financial services firm, states, “The dashboard is easy to follow and use. The deployment and uninstalling were easy. I like the detailed information about the path of a file that might be suspicious. Being able to check that out was easy to follow. Exceptions are easy to create and the interface is easy to follow with a nice appearance.

Reviews from Real Users
Jeff D. who is an Operations Manager at Proton Dealership IT, tells us that "The detection rate for Sentinel One has been excellent and we have been able to resolve many potential threats with zero client impact. The ability to deploy via our RMM allows us to quickly secure new clients and provides peace of mind."
"The most valuable feature varies from client to client but having absolute clarity of what happened and the autonomous actions of SentinelOne are what most people find the most assuring." relates Rae J., Director IR and MDR at a tech services company.
