Protection from viruses, malware, Trojans, and malicious files is most valuable. It is also good in terms of application control. I can control the type of external media that can be connected with endpoint devices and protect them from malicious files and devices such as USB.

The most valuable feature is that I don't feel that it is there. It works in the background and doesn't interfere with my daily work. All the scans are done in the background. This is the biggest advantage of this product.

It works because I have never been infected since I have been using this solution. Its interface is also very good.

In terms of most valuable features, I would say the console which provides us an exciter to keep the laptops up-to-date, gives us alerts when devices are not up-to-date, and so on. I also like the reporting feature and the centralized panel.
