BlackBerry
Cylance Smart Antivirus is well suited for the typical office user. It can be very restrictive if you do not tune it properly and can cause many issues. When tuned and set up properly it is appropriate for 95% of use cases. The last 5% are ones that have the capabilities of bringing an organization down if it is not tuned properly.

For a small or mid-sized firm with distributed computing requirements like ours, Symantec Norton is well suited. It is an ideal solution as it is easy-to-use and the pricing is the right fit on account of geographical customisation. Small businesses, especially, realise the value of endpoint protection only when they encounter serious issues, therefore their product becomes well suited for those who may dither because of the lack of clarity and poor pricing structure of other options. However, the most important feature still remains its effectiveness, which makes it the most optimal option at the right price

Cylance was the first AI scanning-based AV on the market. While Webroot was competitive we found Cylance to be the better solution.

Return on Investment

  • Too much time to manage.
  • Too many false positives.
  • Too much lost productivity.

NortonLifeLock (formerly Symantec)
  • Data Protection is ensured which ensures positive focus from all team members on their work which certain results in improved productivity at the individual level of 2-4% that consequently improves organisational productivity.
  • Our cost of external inputs for data security issues is NIL therefore obviously reducing the bottomline by 1-2% which would be the average cost incurred by organisations of our size in general. Of course an event maybe costlier, but I am sticking to averages since we have had no events.
  • Overall, we feel that the cost of security software is also lower on account of optimised pricing by Symantec. While the expense in this segment is a fraction of total IT costs, and therefore tangible savings are also fractional. However, So, since the value of outcomes (lack of security related negative events) is much higher, intangible benefits are even higher.
