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.

Norton

For a stand-alone business this should do the trick, but if using across multiple clients (multi-tenancy not an option). Default settings within the program will cause performance issues if not tweaked, meaning someone with networking experience may be necessary. Not ideal for MSP's unless they only have a few clients, as the manageability must be done within "the walls" of each company.

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.

Norton

  • Advanced protection against web attacks that take advantage of software vulnerabilities. Stops threats that traditional antivirus techniques do not recognize. Filter unwanted e-mails through professionally robust antispam protection
  • Block phishing websites and authenticate trusted sites. Protects, stores and manages logins and personal information. Prevent hackers from spying and stealing information. Identify unsafe websites in search results.
  • It is one of the most effective antivirus when blocking and removing viruses
  • It helps protect and monitor the home network. Automatically protects the PC when it connects to public wireless networks.

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.

Norton

  • It uses a lot of RAM which can cause issues in other areas of computer use.
  • If you chose to un-install it can be difficult to get rid of all traces of the program.
  • The initial configuring can be challenging for the average user as the manuals are overwhelming. Better tutorials would be helpful.

Depends on pricing and company size. In case of growing will probably switch to Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud or Symantec Endpoint Protection.

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.

Would like a manual or online version that is simple to understand and explains in detail what choices we have and why to make these choices.

Alternatives Considered

ESET Endpoint Security

ESET is the product we chose to replace Symantec Endpoint Protection. ESET is a better product at a lower price point and does not slow down client workstations like Symantec does. Symantec uninstalls from clients were sometimes very difficult and were not clean uninstalls. Sometimes you had to use an uninstall program to clean things up.

Norton

Using a hosted model, we know we are always getting the best core cybersecurity, but for the endpoints, we don't need something as complex as FireEye, and we wanted more than Lookout was able to provide. Lookout was terrific, and it came already installed with many of our phones. But we chose to proactively seek out a cyber solution that mapped to our policies.

Return on Investment

ESET Endpoint Security

  • Outside of user error, Eset provides a level of security that allows me the time to focus on other issues that may occur on the network or on the endpoint itself.
  • No antivirus will catch everything, but Eset continually updates their signatures to help me stay ahead of some of the security risks.
  • The Central Management system allows me to quickly assess which endpoints on my network are safe and which are not.

Norton

  • It has helped prevent any private company information including banking and accounting information from being obtained by hackers. This helps prevent attacks on our accounts which would cause huge issues for our company.
  • It helps keep our computers from crashing due to viruses which would halt any operations on that computer and cause extra hours for our I.T. Department to fix.
