Pros
"The setup is pretty straightforward."

More Micro Focus ZENworks Pros →

"SafeGuard's best feature is its stability.""The intrusion detection system.""The solution can block a virus attack and prevent it from moving across the system.""The malware protection and the scanning features are most valuable in this solution.""The solution has a great VPN.""It's a straightforward solution.""I like the support most of all.""Security-wise, it's one of the best."

Cons
"I'm not on the most current version, however, I know one area that I didn't get into that I kind of wanted to is to have a mobile device management tool. My understanding is it's improved a lot from the version I have. It may be a feature that is already available."

"There are times that this solution takes up too much memory that needs to be resolved. If it is not fixed it will definitely create issues in the future.""It's a good product, but some are not happy with the boot BCN, and the point-to-point VPN requires the best protection.""The Office 360 integration could be improved.""It just needs a little bit more on the reporting side. Its reporting can be improved a little bit in terms of being able to know that things are in the right status. I should be able to pull a report to make sure that everything is all right. It could also have cloud integration. At the time I was using it, it wasn't a cloud product.""It would be ideal if the solution had different features within one agent.""SafeGuard's user interface is ugly and doesn't provide reports, so we have to go into the database and get information from there by creating queries.""The dashboards lack sufficient information.""The solution lacks direct connectivity to Azure AD."
