It just works. I have seen multiple viruses and malware get past other antivirus software like TrendMicro, Webroot, and Kaspersky. Bitdefender GravityZone always catches what others miss. It has a very light footprint when it comes to system resources. The centralized management console is nice, but I prefer the console before they redesigned the UI.

Well-Suited Scenarios:Small to Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs): Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud is well-suited for SMBs with limited IT resources. Its cloud-based management simplifies deployment and ongoing security administration, allowing smaller businesses to benefit from enterprise-grade protection without the complexity.Distributed Workforces: In scenarios where employees work remotely or across multiple locations, the cloud-based nature of Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud is advantageous. It enables centralized management of security policies, ensuring consistent protection for all endpoints regardless of their physical location.Proactive Threat Detection: Organizations that prioritize proactive threat detection and response benefit from Kaspersky's advanced capabilities. The endpoint detection and response (EDR) features help identify and mitigate potential threats in real-time, crucial for industries handling sensitive data.Less Appropriate Scenarios:Highly Regulated Industries with Specific Compliance Requirements: In industries with stringent compliance regulations, organizations may require specialized solutions that offer more granular control and reporting features tailored to specific compliance standards. Kaspersky may need to enhance customization options to cater to these specific needs.Resource-Constrained Environments: While Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud is generally efficient, organizations with extremely resource-constrained environments, such as older hardware or limited bandwidth, might find the solution demanding in terms of system resources.

Pros
Bitdefender
  • Once installed, Bitdefender [GravityZone] runs silently in the background with little to no need for user interaction.
  • The cloud-based console provides for easy computer management and deployment.
  • Bitdefender [GravityZone] is extremely flexible, with a policy-based system wherein different profiles can be created (i.e. a policy to deactivate the firewall, a policy to allow for admin control on a machine, etc.) and pushed out to individual computers.
  • Computers can be grouped into different categories, with different policies automatically deployed to each category.
  • Bitdefender [GravityZone] is relatively resource-light and runs well even on lower-end computers.

  • Excellent Customer Service - Every time I need something from my main contact at Kaspersky I will get the fastest support within a day or two max, depending on the hour I call.
  • Excellent Performance - KES has been I can say a ghost on my company and my clients because of it's performance, since is light weight when processing and protecting.
  • Excellent Administration of Cloud Console - It's easy to navigate thru the KES Cloud Console having a quick help that orientates for any easy doubt to clear out, if needed to escalate I can always setup a Ticket and get a fast response.

Cons
Bitdefender
  • Who do I ask? This is my chief complaint is once the initial licenses were purchased through Bit Defender, there was no one to contact that could help navigate some of the initial questions I had with regard to specific policies to implement for our file server. The parent web site is, well, hard to navigate when one is trying to "learn" the system.
  • The second issue is in increasing the licenses. It took several days for the parent company (by contact and phone) to inform me that they could not increase the licenses and I would have to go through a private vendor. There was no intent to connect me to a vendor or provide a vendor list until I asked specifically. YET I continue to get email from the parent company reminding me to pay an annual fee for the licenses purchase through the private vendor. The parent company can see the number of licenses yet did not sell them to me.
  • Gravity Zone Dashboard, while excellent for those who have experience, is not particularly intuitive for those who have never used it. There does not seem to be a lot of documentation for those responsible for implementation.

  • Though the Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud provides security from all the types of Cyber threat but it will be great to have the protection from the attacks which occurs from inside of an organization.
  • As Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud provides the Cyber security training to it's users in only Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud Pro which should be included in it's all versions so that the users will be aware of the Cyber threats.
  • The feature of root cause analysis is a great feature of Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud but I feel there is a scope for improvement in it.

We have been using Kaspersky Endpoint Security products for several years and the jump to the console cloud has been very comfortable for us since we do not have to dedicate a server to the Kaspersky Endpoint Security console but rather the console is in the cloud so that we save the server and its financial amount, electrical expense, cost of its housing in the CPD.

Usability
Bitdefender
The console is easy to use, but has grown to have a lot of functionality. The only challenge is that all functions (even disabled and not installed ones) are shown. It would be great if only the functions that are active would be visible.

It allows us to roll out endpoint protection quickly from a cloud interface to hundreds of users within seconds and keep those devices secure. From deployment of BitLocker and keeping track of the keys from the interface has saves many users from stolen laptops and devices since we used Kaspersky as our main device protection.

Kaspersky is a market leader company, so I had no doubt that I could trust their cloud services availability. As of now, I haven't experienced any downtime on their cloud portal or any issue in the agent itself. I would recommend it in terms of reliability.

We have had no major issues with Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud. The product has a very low overhead. There have been issues in the past where web pages have been slow to load, as they are being processed by the Kaspersky Security Network. That said, when the issue was reported to technical support, they were quick to assess and provide a viable work around.

Support Rating
Bitdefender
Support is an area Bitdefender has always struggled with. While their products work great, the GravityZone dashboard is very technical in nature. If you aren't IT inclined, it could be difficult to setup. While most times support is helpful, we tend to work with them over email because of their very thick accent, they are hard to understand over the phone.

They assisted us quickly and gave us precise and concise instructions to access the Kaspersky Endpoint Security cloud console.After completing the steps indicated we were able to access the console

The implementation of this product is easy, the console is mounted and from it the client is distributed to the rest of the computers. In this way, the Kaspersky Endpoint Security client is installed on all the computers in the company's IT park and its servers.The installation of clients requires that they have visibility with the console that is in the cloud.

We were a Kaspersky shop for years. Kaspersky was a resource hog and it didn't even block half of what was thrown at it. We had more outbreaks and more end-user complaints in a year of Kaspersky then we have had in almost three years of Bitdefender.

The manufacturer Kaspersky was very flexible with the terms of the contract for the Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud product since it has prices by number of licenses, offering discounts for the volume of licenses to be contracted as well as for the duration of the contract. They show a very empathetic attitude with the client, trying to adapt to what the client needs.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud is a distributed product, you connect to the console and the client is installed on the computers and servers and the only configuration it needs is the console address. Then they connect and the console downloads the virus definitions and defined policies.There are no client limitations, you can even have multiple consoles if you want to have "separate" clients.

Return on Investment
Bitdefender
  • The ROI for Bitdefender is hard to quantify except that it requires very little maintenance time from our staff.
  • We've spent no time troubleshooting user complaints or issues from users, so it has been a big time-saver over our previously used anti-malware software.
  • Bitdefender's customer service is usually pretty good and also very responsive, so I don't have to wait by the phone or to keep checking email to resolve a problem--although our issues have been mostly informational and not a problem with functionality.

  • KES Cloud is the next step on security, where clients did not believe on Cloud solutions, now with this approach of not having servers onsite they are Hapy with the solution, less asset management and updates of hardware is one of the best. At least per Year Min a 6-10K up to 20-30K per year saving with KES Cloud.
  • Cloud Console has been a great change due to de easiness to manage it ad reporting as well.
