Comprehensive threat prevention against a variety of threats, such as viruses, ransomware, and spyware is effectively provided by ESET PROTECT. The cross platform compatibility of this software is advantageous for business with diverse IT environments such as those combination of Windows, macOS, and Linux systems. Some industries, such highly regulated sectors with specific compliance needs, may find it more cost-effective, however it is less suitable for small enterprises with limited IT resources and for organizations with severe budgetary limits.

Email, web browser, and data storage areas will fulfill the security of mobile devices very well. It provides multiple methods of data filtering and classification to ensure important data can be well protected. Unfortunately, it does not support you to make regex-based definitions. for this reason, you need to work on the rules a lot. Another disadvantage is that it cannot monitor Linux systems.

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!

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.

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.

Symantec DLP works good for our very simple and low complexity use cases and I would highly recommend it for them. However, I can't speak to highly complex or advanced use cases that might arise in certain industries like finance. I would recommend that if you are seeking an Enterprise DLP solution that you absolutely must explore this product as one of the leaders in the space - not doing so would be negligent in my opinion.

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.

We really like the lightness of ESET, this really is a differential in your favor, the way it operates quietly in the background even running a scan was something that interested us, nothing worse than an antivirus locking everything like a scan and still end up issuing scandalous false detections, in the end the choice was made by ESET much because of this differential.

Symantec DLP is the best. Put it in a head to head competition and it will win. However it can be a bit more expensive than other products so don't compare on price, compare on quality of product.

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.
