Likelihood to Recommend
Jamf Protect will always have day 1 support for new OS updates, which is an amazing feature. The reporting could use a bit more work and the actions it captures are far beyond anything we would need, but it does that really well too. There are plenty of scenarios where I will gladly recommend this to other institutions. There are not many where I wouldn't. Maybe only if you have a hybrid environment, where licensing another endpoint protection may be beneficial to the budget.

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.

Integrates with Jamf Pro Monitor CIS benchmarks via a clean and nice looking dashboard Read full review Direct Access to devices via Live Terminal which provides operations with scripting, triage, and preservation of artifacts. Behavioral Indicators of Compromise which provides alerts on events regarding groups of hosts and their signatures.

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.

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.

In some aspects, Jamf Protect was far superior to the others mentioned above. The only downside I can see is that it is only macOS which could be a problem for hybrid environments.

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 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 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
