Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We can automate routine tasks and write scripts to carry out difficult tasks, which makes things easier for us.""I like the easy integration and advanced possibilities. We can implement it at customer sites in a few clicks, but we can also dive deep and drill down to extended features. There's a very good starting point to get into this product and all the features from Defender.""Microsoft 365 Defender is a good solution and easy to use.""Among the most valuable features are the alert timeline, the alert story, which is pretty detailed. It gives us complete insight into what exactly happened on the endpoint. It doesn't just say, "Malware detected." It tells us what caused that malware to be detected and how it was detected. It gives us a complete timeline from beginning to end.""Microsoft Defender XDR provides strong identity protection with comprehensive insights into risky user behavior and potential indicators of compromise.""It's a great threat intelligence source for us, providing alerts for things it detects on the network and on the machines. We've used it often when there is a potential incident to see what was done on a computer. That works quite nicely because you can see everything that the user has done...""Microsoft Defender's most critical component is its CASB solution. It has many built-in policies that can improve your organization's cloud security posture. It's effective regardless of where your users are, which is critical because most users are working from home. It's cloud-based, so nothing is on-premise.""I like how Microsoft XDR and the other Microsoft products are integrated into a single unified security stack covering identity access management, endpoint protection, email, cloud applications, etc."

More Microsoft Defender XDR Pros →

"It is very easy to use, and its usability is great. The use cases are also very easy. The visualizations of the use cases are magnificent. You cannot find this in any other solution. From my point of view, it is great.""The stability of the RSA NetWitness Endpoint is very good.""RSA NetWitness does market analysis in a more granular form. It gives you full visibility.""They have recently updated the features and the most valuable ones are the instant threat response, ease of use, web interface, integration, and easy access. RSA NetWitness Endpoint is very compatible with other solutions and technologies. However, they do not rely on third-party solutions and have most features built-in.""The log correlation is good.""The most valuable feature is the way it captures the traffic, and it contains every detail of the communication.""NetWitness Endpoint's most valuable features are its interoperability across many different operating systems and the ease of pivoting from network to endpoint via a single console.""Ability to isolate the machine when there are malicious files."

More NetWitness XDR Pros →

"SentinelOne Singularity Complete, together with SentinelOne Vigilance, is an EDR tool with capabilities such as these, which I found valuable: the dashboard that shows you all the information and the power to either manually or automatically quarantine issues or threats in the environment.""I appreciate that it is easy to review incidents that have been detected by the behavioral AI or the SentinelOne Cloud.""I am particularly interested in the new app vulnerability module that is included with the Singularity Complete edition.""SentinelOne Singularity has hundreds of features. The most valuable feature of the solution is the ease of use and threat control.""The solution offers very rich details surrounding threats or attacks.""The alerting features are the most valuable. We know that when something goes wrong, we get alerted instantly. That gives us a leg up. Even before the user knows what's happening, we're being alerted to step in and stop anything catastrophic from happening.""The process visualization, automated response, and snapshotting are valuable. The integration and automation possibilities are also valuable.""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."

More SentinelOne Singularity Complete Pros →

"It would be beneficial to have a more seamless experience with everything consolidated in one place, particularly when dealing with aspects related to the Exchange console.""One of the biggest downsides of Microsoft products, in general, is that the menus are often difficult to find, as they tend to move from place to place between versions.""Generally, antivirus products provide a central control to manage every device in terms of who is installing it or who is trying to disable it, but Microsoft doesn't have such a control center for the antivirus product it provides.""365 Defender has multiple subsets, including Defender for Cloud Apps. When integrating Defender for Cloud Apps with apps on third-party cloud platforms like AWS or GCP, there are limitations on our ability to control user activities. If Microsoft added more control over third-party products, that would be a game-changer and help us quite a lot.""The solution could improve by having better machine learning and AI. Additionally, the interface, documentation, and integration could be better.""I'd like to see a wider solution that includes not only desktop devices but also other devices, such as servers, storage cabinets, switching equipment, et cetera.""This solution could be improved if it included features such as those offered by Malwarebytes.""We should be able to use the product on devices like Apple, Linux, etc."

More Microsoft Defender XDR Cons →

"The solution is modular, for example you can buy the RSA ePack, which you buy as a module is not part of the conduit solution. They could include it and have it as an all-in-one solution.""This solution needs an upgrade in reporting. I have heard from RSA that they are working on this, but as of yet it is not available.""The contamination feature could be improved.""I would like to see Security Orchestration and Response Automation (SOAR) integration.""The integration of the solution needs to be improved. The dashboard needs lots of updates as well. In the next release, we would like to see advanced fraud detection features.""RSA NetWitness Network could improve on integration with non-native application integration.""The threat intelligence could improve in RSA NetWitness Endpoint.""Threat detection could be better."

More NetWitness XDR Cons →

"The product must provide the ability to update applications from the SentinelOne Management Console.""The stability of SentinelOne should be improved.""We did use the Ranger functionality. However, there was some scanning going on and it caused a lot of noise, so we had to disable it.""There should be Terraform support for console administration. Dynamic tagging would be also useful.""I would like to see a better mobile app so that I could look through my phone at the alerts and not have to go to the website. They should make it a little more mobile-accessible.""SentinelOne is making a lot of moves to acquire various companies, but the roadmap isn't clear, and it is still uncertain how the new acquisitions will integrate. For example, SentinelOne recently acquired a mobile security solution, but there is no real integration between the platforms.""SentinelOne's customer support is sluggish and frequently fails to deliver sufficient assistance.""The solution can improve by adding more granular firewall capabilities."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The solutions price is fair for what they offer."
  • "The price could be better. Normally, the costs depend on the country you're located in for the license. When we were in the initial stage, we went with the E5 license they call premium standard. It cost us around $5.20 per month for four users."
  • "The price of the solution is high compared to others and we have lost some customers because of it."
  • "Microsoft is not competitive with the pricing of the solution. The competitors are able to offer lower discounts. The price of the solution is higher."
  • "We have a lot of problems in Latin America regarding the price of Microsoft 365 Defender, because the relationship between dollars and the money of the different countries, it's is a lot. Many customers that have small businesses say that they would like the solution but it is too expensive. However, large companies do not find the cost an issue."
  • "The most valuable licensing option is expensive, so pricing could be improved. Licensing options for this solution also need to be consolidated, because they frequently change."
  • "Microsoft should provide lower-level licensing options. They should do it in such a way that even an individual could purchase a license, and it should be entirely flexible."
  • "They have moved from a licensing model to pay-per-use... The question is: What happens if, for any reason, there's not enough budget to accept this model? That could be a great problem."
  • More Microsoft Defender XDR Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "With RSA, there is flexibility in choosing the service, products, and the range that meets your requirement, as well as they are flexible in terms of pricing."
  • "They can easily adjust if you have the requirements which are required. If you have a budget cut or a budget constraint, they can bend."
  • "It is highly scalable. It can be bought based on your requirements."
  • "I do not have any opinion on the pricing or licensing of the product."
  • "The cost depends on the number of endpoints that you want to monitor, but it is not expensive."
  • "It is an expensive product."
  • "The price of the solution depends on the environment. If the environment is large then it will cost more. However, the larger the environment with more endpoints, you will receive an increased discount. If the environment is very small, then you might think it is expensive. It is always better to buy in bulk to receive a discount. The minimum number of assets is usually 500, with discounts on 1000 and 2000."
  • "The pricing is not very economical. It is a quite costly product for India. One thing is that when you purchase it, you have to purchase a module separately."
  • More NetWitness XDR Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The price is competitive, if you compare it with other solutions on the market."
  • "Spend money on the security for the endpoint."
  • "The price for it is very competitive compared to other Next Gen EPP."
  • "The per-seat cost is low, but you have to commit to a certain number of licenses for a year."
  • "The larger count you have, the deeper discount you will receive in your contract."
  • "Our licensing fees are about $5 USD per endpoint, per month."
  • "USD$6 per end point which decreases as end points increase."
  • "Pricing is a bit of a pain point. That's where we have not been able to convince all of our customers to use SentinelOne. The pricing is still on the higher side. It's almost double the price, if not more, of a normal antivirus, such as NOD32, Kaspersky, or Symantec."
