It has almost no effect on PC operation and can be used as usual. The security detection can be programmed according to the usage time, so it can be configured. The low price is easy to introduce. Then, if the number of additional licenses increases, it will be discounted, so it is suitable for the corporate introduction. Regular updates are available, so you can rest assured.

Malware that doesn’t leave files behind has become widely available. Anyone who can afford to reverse this trend should purchase technology. Application whitelisting isn’t for everyone, and Palo Alto Networks Traps can help. Enterprises looking for a low-affected, next-generation solution with high protection should consider it. PAN Traps is a great product at a reasonable price, and I highly recommend it.
Read full review Pros ESET provides comprehensive, transparent protection for my MacOS devices without interfering with the efficiency of my operating system. It's easy to install, configure (default settings are great for just about everyone), and update. ESET's customer communications, including a very detailed knowledge base online, make it clear I've chosen the right antivirus solution!

Behavioral Indicators of Compromise which provides alerts on events regarding groups of hosts and their signatures. Querying complex data sets involving a variety of devices for network connections, hashes, DNS, etc. Read full review Cons Price a little expensive - ESET is a great product, but it is priced at a high price and in a market as competitive as antivirus and security tools, this can weigh in the balance. Complexity in creating rules - it's quite complex to create rules in ESET, you end up wasting some time on it, it could be more intuitive. Read full review Traps doesn't seem to function as a traditional A/V very well, so it's better as another layer to your endpoint protection Traps can cause issues with some legacy or custom programs, so exceptions may have to be made Traps falsely identifies things as malicious at times, this is not often though Read full review Likelihood to Renew
I'm giving it a 10, because I would totally have no reservations about staying on with eSet for another 3 years once our contract comes up for renewal. We are looking to transfer to a different product in January, however. This is due to a special pricing contract with the state of Ohio that made a normally much more expensive product very affordable and was cheaper than our coming eSet renewal cost. This is a very special case only available to government and educational organizations, but had that not been offered, we would have gladly stayed with eSet.

We had issues initially getting all of the policies implemented and working since it can be hard to figure out what setting is coming from what policy. Once you get your stack of policies setup and working, the product works great. The installers just work and knowing that they can remove other AV software when you install it can save you a lot of time and headaches.

Day to day, Cortex is easy to use when you have no alerts and when an agent upgrade doesn't go south. Alerts are far too "clicky", there's too many steps to drilling down to what actually happened to trigger an alert. Investigating alerts in Cortex takes about 5x longer than it should.

Excellent support from ESET and when we had questions regarding the initial deployment they were there. The questions we put forth were answered immediately with great detail. Any of the items we put forth, scenarios, were given a good solution from ESET to fit our needs. This company stands by their product and are happy to step up when needed.

The support we receive from Palo Alto is one of the best aspects of Traps. It is very easy to recommend their support. It seems much easier to connect directly with someone with a deep understanding of the product rather than other companies where you basically have to make an airtight case that it is some kind of non-standard issue that can't be solved with existing documentation. Palo Alto digs deep and helps with advanced troubleshooting to get things working.

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.

I'm a huge fan of ESET, the other companies seem to have either gone off the deep end by adding advertisements or they add too much and slow down the whole program, which slows down the whole PC. I haven't heard others with the same reputation as ESET either, I know of many people who prefer ESET over others as well

Traps is the slickest interface, easy to use and intuitive rule making, and the rest just didn't quite stack up to the performance level of Traps.
and Kaspersky just hog processor and RAM power. I didn't like the interface and functionality of
as much as Traps. Palo Alto really put a lot of time into the development of this software, and had some of the founding fathers of IT Security heading the development process. Can't beat that.
Read full review Return on Investment Stopped several malware outbreaks that would have had considerable downtime on endpoints. Stopped several ransomware attacks that would have potentially costs large sums of money and downtime. Allowed us to utilize Eset itself in lieu of a patchwork of platforms to accomplish the same tasks. Saving us several thousand per year. Read full review After putting Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR on a user's system, users came back with a positive response that there are no performance issues now. We are able to track and control granular suspicious and malicious activities. Web controls are missing, which if they would have been there would have been very helpful. Read full review ScreenShots
