Cylance Smart Antivirus

It is a good and smart tool not only for small firms but
also for large ones. The speed of action as well as the smooth working of this
tool makes this tool worth buying. We have been using it for a long time, and we haven’t encountered any threat so far. However, when it comes to its pricing, it
is not so suitable for us and needs to be less.

FortiClient

FortiClient is really well suited for providing remote employees super quick access to a local network without needing much technical know-how. The virus scanning and web-blocking is also really great at making sure to keep the spam, ads, and other malicious web connections at bay. I have not run into any specific scenario that FortiClient has not been well suited - All of the scenarios in which I have used FortiClient have all functions really well for me.

Pros

Cylance Smart Antivirus

  • Its major strength is that it is lightweight on the storage.
  • It works smoothly and there is no periodic scanning in it .
  • It is effective against Malware and virus and provides in-depth detection and removal.
  • It provides frequent updates and every update makes it more better and advanced.

FortiClient

  • [FortiClient] splits the traffic very well. For example, when users connect a VPN to the office they are connecting to the internal system which uses VPN traffic. If users access the public internet they use the internet traffic, but [Fortinet] does not route this traffic back to the office.

Cons

Cylance Smart Antivirus

  • Its subscription charges need to be declined.
  • We had faced some bugs but they get resolved with the new update.
  • There is little information and details related to the threats and I think this needs to be improved.
Sarah Maeve | TrustRadius Reviewer

FortiClient

  • font way too small on login, unable to select an option, for example, to see each letter of password as typed promotes errors at login
  • login errors and failure rate extremely high as [reported] by all our physicians and other providers: not infrequently one will have to return to office after hours in order to complete charts or access charts to answer patient after hours questions
  • frequent disconnects in spite of excellent internet signal
  • unacceptable interruptions in patient care

Because the software is very simple and easy to use, very efficient, and has a stable connection that allows the user to perform tasks without problems. Also, this software does not need to be configured by IT technicians, since it comes with a very developed and understandable set up guide.

Usability is pretty solid. It is not as easy to manage and adjust if you are not a trained IT professional, which requires smaller companies without IT staff to reply on outsourced IT partners. The user interface is a bit clunky, but you can generally figure out what you need to do, it just takes a little bit of time and effort.

FortiClient is a security suite with which we can keep our equipment well-protected. And it is that in a system like Windows, which is always the target of all kinds of attacks, it is not enough to have a simple antivirus.

Alternatives Considered

Cylance Smart Antivirus

We switched to Cylance Smart Antivirus almost a year ago. Before that, we were using Avast Business Antivirus which was kind of an absurd experience for us. First of
all Avast Business Antivirus was a heavyweight software, and as a repercussion, it interrupted our
system’s normal workings. Because of that, we had to pay a high cost as we
were not able to do anything else while scanning.

FortiClient

AnyConnect would disconnect randomly. One of the main reasons for switching was a vulnerability in the client that Cisco had no plans on patching. We would have to constantly address the vulnerability once a quarter after our vulnerability scans.

Return on Investment

Cylance Smart Antivirus

  • Our whole system and the entire organization feel very safe.
  • No virus, malware, or even ransomware can enter our systems .
  • It works in silence and isn’t a burden on our systems.
Sarah Maeve | TrustRadius Reviewer

FortiClient

  • The free version of FortiClient VPN works great.
  • The fact that we have to pay for any version beyond 6.0.3 to connect to our firewalls that we already pay for licensing on is a little silly.
  • There is some support overhead with our clients and users to keep the software updated since it doesn't upgrade to new major versions automatically.
