Looking for feedback about Seqrite UTM devices

Has anyone tested or is actively using the Seqrite range of UTM devices in production?

I just wanted an honest opinion about their performance and reliability.

Without knowing much about Seqrite, I can offer this advice:

1. Request (2) loaners for you to test out. Any sales team worth their salt will agree to this simple request, especially if it's going to be 30 days or less.
2. Use a Penetration and Vulnerability tool so you can determine if bad operators can easily break in.

Keep this in mind for now and forever: If you sell a security service and your customer suffers from a number of attacks, any number at all, which leads to any kind of loss in productivity or intellectual property, they would consider it your fault, and you don't want that.

Seqrite is new entrant in the perimeter security. Hence not have much option on it, but yes Seqrite is doing good in EPP.

Never heard about them.
I’m not into UTMs anyway except for small companies with few number of users and low outbound/ inbound traffic

I have never used this equipment, I can not really help. But if I base myself on the datasheets, it is an equipment which should function like Sophos or Fortinet

Hello dear community, My organization (a university with 500+ employees and ~5000 students) is looking for an endpoint security solution. Currently, we have Seqrite Endpoint Security, Comodo Advanced Endpoint Protection and Kaspersky Endpoint Security on the table for our consideration.  Which of these solutions would you recommend to choose and why? Please advise. I appreciate your help!

Cylance: One of the fastest growing vendors in the Endpoint Security market, Cylance has built its reputation on the back of proactive and preventive antivirus technology based on artificial intelligence, machine learning, and algorithmic science. Headquartered in Irvine, California and with offices around the world, Cylance was founded by a team of security industry professionals and scientists with the goal to “redefine the endpoint standard of protection by preventing threats from ever executing.” Bottom Line: Cylance’s signatureless anti-malware provides an alternative to traditional, signature-based technology, and benefits from easy deployment and management, low-performance impact, and high detection rates against new threat variants. The company is a good pick for companies of all sizes looking to shore-up existing defenses, or for an alternative to traditional anti-malware. The most valuable feature is the ability to respond to zero-day and unknown threats. Cylance’s AI and Machine Learning ensures that all types of malware and PUP (Potential Unwanted Programs) are detected and your endpoint devices are fully protected, even with day zero threats.

There are several good ones and it depends on budget, integrations needed, staff levels, etc. Crowdstrike Falcon is great if you can afford it. Price reflects "set it and forget it" type of EPP. No need to hire FTE to manage it and comes with 24x7x365 SOC. If you can manage, SentinelOne offers great detections and incident response capabilities (it is really an EDR). S1 has a ransomware rollback feature in case it gets through initial detections (can restore encrypted files if needed) and provides up to 1 million in ransom costs to back up their confidence. If you are a Checkpoint shop and want to leverage some of their other features (Cloudguard SaaS, Endpoint Encryption, etc.) then their Sandblast agent also offers great detections and a rollback feature of their own. Palo Alto traps is decent if you are a PAN shop but can get heavy on admin overhead. Same with Cisco AMP. We do not sell traditional A/V anymore because of polymorphic threats and zero day. Must have behavioral analytics and anomaly detection capabilities.
