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.

CylancePROTECT

CylancePROTECT is very well suited for companies ready to make the next step away from signature-based antivirus to algorithm/machine-learning solutions. We did many demos of Cylance prior to purchase (along with an in-house stress test) of subjecting virtual machines to zero-day attacks with our current antivirus solutions against Cylance, and we were able to see the results of Cylance blocking all known threats, whereas our current antivirus failed spectacularly

Pros

Comodo Antivirus

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

CylancePROTECT

  • Easily managed from the cloud portal.
  • Doesn't require a connection to the cloud to be totally effective against threats.
  • Very easy to deploy in a domain environment.
  • Very easy to administer.
  • Notification when or if a threat is detected.
  • The client itself is protected from being stopped at the local PC level, a common thing that most threats do is stop the AV service from running.
  • Very easy to track what your top threats have been and mitigate them.

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

CylancePROTECT

  • It would be great if there was a way for an administrator to make a file as safe from the end user device when a false positive has occurred (which is rare). At present and administrator has to log into the web console, create an exception and then wait 60-120 seconds for this to be effective on the end user device, still great, but this can be frustrating for users that are urgently trying to use the file.
  • Executive reporting could be better. Just a single page dashboard report that could be included in other monthly reporting.

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.

I have only used CylancePROTECT support one time and they were very fast and responsive with the answers that solved my issue. That is the only reason I gave them a 7 as I have only had one interaction with them.

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.
Justin Bongard | TrustRadius Reviewer

CylancePROTECT

Cylance, I believe is the only one that uses the predict and prevent execution of advanced threats and malware at the endpoint. Cylance is by far a superior product.

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.
Justin Bongard | TrustRadius Reviewer

CylancePROTECT

  • We have the piece of mind that our endpoints are protected.
  • We have more time to work on other projects as we don't have to worry about computers being on to have scheduled scans.
  • Our computers CPU and RAM aren't going to be taken up with big process like typical anti-virus programs do.
