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.

Palo Alto Networks Traps

Traps is a fantastic tool for malware prevention and works great alongside traditional A/V. Integration with other Palo Alto gear is also very nice, as it can tap into other products/tools for enhanced functionality. Traps is great at quarantining malicious code to a single source and stops the spread of malware that uses network shares to spread very well.

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.

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 A bit unsettling when you log into your console and see every one of your end users out-of-date.

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.

Palo Alto Networks Traps

Traps and its integration with central management tools by Palo Alto and wildfire was a better fit for our environment. Others provided similar levels of protection but in some cases did not live up to expectations as traps did. Palo Alto also worked with us to better Traps, its management tool, and deployment issues. Other vendors were not as forthcoming with support

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)

Palo Alto Networks Traps

  • Traps had an agent upgrade get "stuck" that required me to manually reboot servers into safe mode to remediate it. Traps/Cortex ROI is by far negative. I'm pretty well-paid. Requiring multiple hours of my time to remediate your [bad] product entirely destroys any benefit.
