Overall Satisfaction with Adaptive Defense 360 / WatchGuard EPDR

We use this as one of the main protections on 100% of our endpoints and servers. The Advanced Reporting Tool and SIEM connection capabilities are used to feed to a third party Security Operations Center (SOC) for close to real-time review. We use the zero trust level of protection in Adaptive Defense 360, the disk encryption, and the patch management features.
  • Endpoint threat detection & automatic response
  • Patch management
  • Disk encryption
  • Centralized management
  • Centralize management ease of use
  • Native Security Operations Center (SOC) services (instead of needing third party)
  • Reduced management time
  • Simplified security policies compliance
  • Improved security over antivirus/antimalware
Adaptive Defense 360 has a better management console than any of these 3 competitors. Adaptive Defense 360 has a better back-end tech support team than McAfee and SentinelOne. Adaptive Defense 360 has pretty solid reporting, way better than Webroot. Adaptive Defense 360 was cheaper than SentinelOne when we compared to SentinelOne. Adaptive Defense 360 offers way more protection than Webroot did.

Technical customer support is a big deal for us - WatchGuard is consistently good at that. The product is a good solution. It locks down our machines, keeps them patched, and helps us know where our vulnerabilities are. It doesn't make the machines slow, and we've not had many problems we couldn't get figured out quickly with their console, online help, or tech support.
Centralized console tells you what computers it's found in your environment that aren't secure. With the Advanced Reporting Tool add-on, you can see a lot of data about what's going on in your environment. Patch management is good here too, it keeps a lot of the common third party (non-Microsoft) software patched up for us, using a pretty simple console. The ability to disallow unapproved applications is a big feature that we love with Adaptive Defense 360.
Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365)
The tool is simple to deploy [and] simple enough to manage. If you've got a Windows-based office environment, the Adaptive Defense 360 tool is worth implementing. We also recommend IT organizations and service providers to seriously consider using this. It's significantly more advanced than basic antivirus and meets most high-security environment requirements.
