Comodo Antivirus

Comodo Antivirus seems to be very cost-effective and capable, but if someone was particular about certain things, I think they could be disappointed. You could pay a lot more for a bigger brand and get a little better customization options. It works for us who don't have any internal custom apps anymore. When we did, one that used command-line functions that called other programs and resources on the network, everything about it was rightly being flagged. Since we got away from having a program that could resemble one a hacker uses, we have had very limited issues. We had to just turn containment off because it was too much of a hassle to figure out how to get all of the different parts white-listed.

Its middle of the road and should suit most applications well

Pros

Comodo Antivirus

  • Automatic containment of suspicious programs
  • Centrally managed whitelist options
Justin Bongard | TrustRadius Reviewer

ControlNow (Discontinued)

  • An instant scan of file level downloads so that introduction of a variant file is limited before the scan engine clears it.
  • Dashboard use of the agents available allows for near real-time review and action without directed access to the station.

Cons

Comodo Antivirus

  • Whitelisting could be more customizable.
  • We were getting a lot of false positives for Windows updates and other widely used applications, but, then, they seemed to fix that problem.
Justin Bongard | TrustRadius Reviewer

ControlNow (Discontinued)

  • Dashboard refresh when you have over 100 end agents can be lagging at times
  • The agent install process has potential to hang without alert or warning unless your paying attention through the complete install
  • The silent install process can be problematic when dealing with large-scale networks with varied OS models

Support Rating

Comodo Antivirus 9.0
Based on 1 answer
I have interacted with them several times, and I'm not giving them a 10 because they never blew my mind how good they were, but they certainly met my high expectations and helped us resolve all issues we had. We paid for support to help us set it up, and I think that was a good choice. There's a very steep learning curve at first with the initial configuration. We feel confident in being able to change everything now that we have been using it, but initially it was all a very new thing to us since we never had used a centrally managed Antivirus and Firewall program before.

Alternatives Considered

Comodo Antivirus

Especially considering the containment feature it had, we felt it was very well worth the price. All of the features are very hard to compare, and you have to eventually take a leap of faith. We were fine with where that took us with this program choice. Support has always been pretty good and friendly.

ControlNow more nimble and less impactful on the local PC

Return on Investment

Comodo Antivirus

  • Overall a very positive impact. We like how it can be told to remove itself the next time a computer comes online. Web root never worked well at doing that.
  • It was cheaper than alternatives, and we were really impressed with how safe computers can be with containment as long as it doesn't slow you down if you use custom-built apps.

  • At current we are on build up and the ROI isnt a factor
