Extended Endpoint Protection, part of Alert Logic Essentials

This is pretty good AV product - lightweight, easy to install, and easy on system resources. It will take some getting used to on the end user side, it doesn't scan in a traditional way, and it does not have a taskbar icon so it hard to know if it's working or installed. My only complaint would be the false positives which I know every AV system has, but the problem with Barkly is that it alerts the users with a message (which they freak out about) and it alerts IT with an email. Again, not a major issue, but it can be annoying until it is overridden. The override process is super easy though, so its again, not a big deal.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • Very stable and cost-effective.
  • Better integration with leading database vendors would be great; this would address features that are missing like x-windows support and concurrent secure file transfers.
  • Patching is relatively fast and not as frequent as other vendors (with no impact on adherence to security best practices).
  • Very easy to install and low storage footprint.

Pros

Extended Endpoint Protection, part of Alert Logic Essentials

  • Stops programs from making changes to users' system - this can be hit or miss, but I'd rather have a false positive and have to override it, then a virus on my systems.
  • The override system for false positives is very simple and easy to use - if a program throws up a flag, it is very easy to tell Barkly to leave it alone and it will do this network-wide, which is nice for things like updates.
  • Very lightweight, small install and leaves almost no footprint on your system. Also system resource utilization is very light.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • Most up to date secure/encryption technology.
  • Very fast to set up and maintain.
  • Supported by all major hardware platforms (Microsoft, Linux).

Cons

Extended Endpoint Protection, part of Alert Logic Essentials

  • There is no visible icon that it is installed unless you go into Add/Remove programs, locally you would not know its there.
  • If an update is installed (i.e. Windows Update) and Barkly flags it, you will get SPAMMed with alerts until it is overridden. An easy fix but can be annoying if you are on your way in and not at the office yet.
  • Reporting is a bit lit in the Admin console - installs, and updates, but not much else.
  • Getting better, but when they update their product, there wasn't much warning originally. A bit unsettling when you log into your console and see every one of your end users out-of-date.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • X-windows support could be more robust.
  • Virtual shell adaptation could be improved.
  • Greater concurrency for large secure transmissions would be a great add-on.

  • Support organization is active, so is online community boards.
  • There have been no significant issues that haven't been able to be quickly addressed by either online documentation or F-Secure support.
  • Easy to use diagnostic tools and information gathering, make problem analysis fast.
  • Phone support can be different due to time zone differences, but this has not been a major issue.

Alternatives Considered

Extended Endpoint Protection, part of Alert Logic Essentials

I've found Barkly to be much better than these products at protecting my systems. It does not require the horsepower that these do to run. It uses systems resources well. It protects well. It alerts and updates well. This is a good AV system to have on your endpoints and is a sound financial investment if you are looking to protect your assets from virus/malware/ransomware.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • This suite of software does not have any mentionable competition, in my opinion.
  • It adheres to current security protocols, in-frequent patching requirements, low IT overhead, and on-going support are exemplary.
  • Robust documentation and online community boards help keep support and maintenance transparent and efficient.
  • Legacy support for older OS' is quite useful.
  • Simplicity when onboarding into custom hybrid network configurations is also vital.

Return on Investment

Extended Endpoint Protection, part of Alert Logic Essentials

  • Decently priced for AVs
  • Has protected against several viruses, and that right there is enough to warrant purchase, any virus stopped is money saved
  • Low impact on users, so they aren't complaining of slowness on their computers when scanning (it does not scan traditionally)
Nathan Venno | TrustRadius Reviewer

F-Secure Business Suite

  • Very low cost.
  • Low IT overhead (very low network bandwidth, CPU, storage utilization).
  • Supported by all major hardware vendors.
