ESET Endpoint Security

In our BYOD office environment, we need to make sure that everyone has sufficient antivirus protection on their machines, and ESET is, hands-down, the best solution for MacOS. I've tried them all and found none better! Needless to say, ESET is just as great for Windows. It even offers support for mobile devices.

Jamf Protect

It is ideally suited for companies with staff who need admin access but may not be fully trusted to manage their computers. They fall for phishing attacks and other hacks where they might be tricked into installing malware or "updates" that are not really updates. It is also great for anyone who needs to monitor CIS benchmarks.

Pros

ESET Endpoint Security

  • Light and quiet protector - ESET is silent, it works in the background without consuming the performance of the machine. Some security and antivirus tools usually consume a lot of machine performance during its scans, ESET is not like that, most of the time you will forget that it is there.
  • No problems with false alerts - ESET has great accuracy compared to other security tools, hardly the false alert, unlike some competitors who are whistling and making scandal without reasons being an extremely annoying experience, with ESET you do not have this problem.
  • Good support staff that responds quickly to any request for help that you make.

Jamf Protect

  • Security--it scans processes for 'bad stuff'
  • Notifies admins of any issues or potential issues; entirely customizable and we create many custom notifications and groups.
  • Integrates with Jamf Pro
  • Monitor CIS benchmarks via a clean and nice looking dashboard

Cons

ESET Endpoint Security

  • The program update procedure can be a bit difficult. It doesn't just auto upgrade major versions, you have to apply them a certain way if you want to manage them via the remote console. Not all the latest versions work with the remote management software.
Kenji C | TrustRadius Reviewer

Jamf Protect

  • The integration with Jamf Pro has come a long way but could still be a bit more "one stop" vs two tools and two dashboards.

Do the full scan at the beginning and be prepared to wait until it is done. It will find things you did not know were there. You can leave on the Apple firewall as well as the ESET firewall. There have been no conflicts. Remember to remove emails from being backed up, so you do not have spam on your backup! This was the mistake I made.

Alternatives Considered

ESET Endpoint Security

It was pre-existing when I came to this company so ESET is dug in deep and removing it would be a process. Defender was nice and is a solution I wouldn't mind moving to. My biggest concern is web protection due to the amount of password compromise request emails the user base gets so have a system that is big on web protection is a must.
Cameron Council | TrustRadius Reviewer

Jamf Protect

Jamf Protect is much lighter on system usage. It also has exclusive access to the threat protection baked into macOS. This lets Jamf Protect leverage the great work Apple is doing, and gives admins a way to extend that as well as view reports. Webroot was often missing things that were threats. SentinelOne was a bit more resource heavy. Solarwinds...err..."N-Able"...do I really need to say anything?

Return on Investment

ESET Endpoint Security

  • I can tell you that the cost to provide this security suite is lower than the other major vendors' product and is a better product.
  • The need to protect your organization from threats is required. The costs associated with recovering from an infection that spreads across the organization, the data loss, the productivity loss, etc., are huge! Don't risk it by "saving money" and taking risks.

Jamf Protect

  • Reduced helpdesk tickets for admin tasks; reduces overall IT costs
  • Reduced lost time due to malware
  • Reduced lost data due to infected computers needing a wipe and purge of any malware
