Its middle of the road and should suit most applications well

Kaspersky Endpoint Security

Anytime you are managing multiple servers and workstations on a network, having a good Security Center to assist with that management is critical. Kaspersky Security Center provides that and gives the administrator the tools and reports necessary to properly manage and monitor these systems across a network. This is a VERY useful tool and it makes my job much easier.

Pros

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.
John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

Kaspersky Endpoint Security

  • Potential threat identification and quarantining is immediate and very reliable.
  • Monitoring system updates, statistics, hardware status, and connectivity issues for all systems on the network.
  • Installation and registration, either remotely or in person, is a breeze, usually taking about 10-15 minutes, and with step by step confirmations.
  • The organizational hierarchy, as well as the abilities listed in the hierarchy are extremely user friendly and easy to use for novices and pros alike.

Cons

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
John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

Kaspersky Endpoint Security

  • The PC imaging tools are difficult to set up and use
  • Device Encryption tools are getting better, but are difficult to manage.
  • The policies are powerful, but could be broken up. More help can be provided in what the policy element does within the policy setup

The product is stable and accurate in detecting security threats. There are very few or no false positives in detecting security threats or unusual behavior and has very sharp heuristics. The product does the job very well including saving us money in getting 3rd party patch management tools as the business is already using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager which is Microsoft product specific and the product patches these third party products e.g Adobe Flash Player

The integration with a known solution is not good (Cisco ISE), product (10.x) does not automate remediation, however security is great and detects security threats with accuracy including heuristics, very few or no false positives

I give the maximum grade because we have no complaints; we never had any failure, serious error, and serious threat to the company. All of its features work very well. The great advantage of having a product supported by an industry-leading security company is that regularly updated security protocols will protect the system against all emerging threats.

Make sure to provide awareness campaigns on changes that will be implemented and WHY the business is doing it and the benefits reaped. Benefits reaped is very important for the justification of why things have to change and emphasizing the importance of security. This will reduce user disgruntlement and total bitterness on use of their workstation or laptop

ControlNow more nimble and less impactful on the local PC
John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

Kaspersky Endpoint Security

Kaspersky is a leader in endpoint protection, but its ties to potential adversaries are unsettling. Kaspersky has a great threat research team and quickly identifies malicious software and its signature. Its web-based protection is also top notch. This is a great product but as with everything has its place.

Return on Investment

ControlNow (Discontinued)

  • At current we are on build up and the ROI isnt a factor
John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

Kaspersky Endpoint Security

  • It reduced the incidents of infections and so reduced the efforts needed by the IT department to mitigate problems.
  • It made it difficult to manage the security of our growing mobile user base due to infrequent contact with our on-premise management server.
