Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution's integration capabilities are excellent. It's one of the best features.""If somebody has been compromised, the question always is: How has it affected other devices in the network? Cisco AMP gives you a very neat view of that.""It is extensive in terms of providing visibility and insights into threats. It allows for research into a threat, and you can chart your progress on how you're resolving it.""The ability to detonate a particular problem in a sandbox environment and understand what the effects are, is helpful. We're trying, for example, to determine, when people send information in, if an attachment is legitimate or not. You just have to open it. If you can do that in a secure sandbox environment, that's an invaluable feature. What you would do otherwise would be very risky and tedious.""The threat Grid with the ability to observe the sandboxing, analyze, and perform investigations of different malicious files has been great.""Integration is a key selling factor for Cisco security products. We have a Cisco Enterprise Agreement with access to Cisco Email Security, Cisco Firepower, Cisco Stealthwatch, Cisco Talos, Cisco Threat Grid, Cisco Umbrella, and also third-party solutions. This is key to our security and maximizing operations. Because we do have the Email Security appliance and it is integrated with Threat Response, we have everything tied together. Additionally, we are using the Cisco SecureX platform, as we were a beta test for that new solution. With SecureX, we are able to pull all those applications into one pane for visibility and maintenance. This greatly maximizes our security operations.""The entirety of our network infrastructure is Cisco and the most valuable feature is the integration.""It doesn't impact the devices. It is an agent-based solution, and we see no performance knock on cell phones. That was a big thing for us, especially in the mobile world. We don't see battery degradation like you do with other solutions which really drain the battery, as they're constantly doing things. That can shorten the useful life of a device."

"It provides good insight into the programs, applications, or websites that may need attention.""I like the AI and mathematical components that they use.""The solution is very quick at easily changing the levels of protection for each computer and the server.""Two or three years ago when the WannaCry virus struck, the people that were on Cylance were the ones that weren't affected.""The deployment of updates is easy.""I find the actual overall endpoint malware protection the most valuable feature of CylancePROTECT.""We are quite security-focused. Blackberry Protect as an endpoint solution for our service really delivers what we are expecting.""Has good RAM capacity for the power I need"

"MVISION Endpoint is so much easier and so much simpler for the lay security personnel to handle.""I have not received any complaints about the performance.""The agents are easy to deploy.""Technical support is excellent.""It is scalable and stable and the initial setup is the easiest part of using the product.""The most valuable feature is user-based policy provision."

Cons
"...the greatest value of all, would be to make the security into a single pane of glass. Whilst these products are largely integrated from a Talos perspective, they're not integrated from a portal perspective. For example, we have to look at an Umbrella portal and a separate AMP portal. We also have to look at a separate portal for the firewalls. If I could wave a magic wand and have one thing, I would put all the Cisco products into one, simple management portal.""The connector updates are very easily done now, and that's improving. Previously, the connector had an issue, where almost every time it needed to be updated, it required a machine reboot. This was always a bit of an inconvenience and a bug. Because with a lot of software now, you don't need to do that and shouldn't need to be rebooting all the time.""The GUI needs improvement, it's not good.""I would recommend that the solution offer more availability in terms of the product portfolio and integration with third-party products.""In Orbital, there are tons of prebuilt queries, but there is not a lot of information in lay terms. There isn't enough information to help us with what we're looking for and why we are looking for it with this query. There are probably a dozen queries in there that really focus on what I need to focus on, but they are not always easy to find the first time through.""The one challenge that I see is the use of multiple endpoint protection platforms. For instance, we have AMP, but we also have Microsoft Windows Defender, System Center Endpoint Protection, and Microsoft Malware Protection Engine deployed. So, we have a bunch of different things that do the same thing. What winds up happening is, e.g., if I get an alert for a potential incident or malware and want to pull the file, I'll go to fetch the file to analyze it. But, one of these other programs has already gotten it, so the file has already been quarantined by another endpoint protection system. AMP doesn't realize that and the file fetch fails, then you're left wondering what's going on.""We don't have issues. We think that Cisco covers all of the security aspects on the market. They continue to innovate in the right way.""We had a lot of noise at the beginning, and we had to turn it down based on exclusions, application whitelisting, and excluding unknown benign applications. Cisco should understand the need for continuous updates on the custom Cisco exclusions and the custom applications that come out-of-the-box with the AMP for Endpoints."

More Cisco Secure Endpoint Cons →

"The company that sells us the licenses sometimes doesn't know how to do certain things.""The user interface is outdated.""The product does not do a lot of reporting on what it is taking care of. Enhanced reporting would be a welcome improvement.""It could have integration with industrial base HMIS or Human Machine Interfaces Solutions. This is the industrial environment where you have a control center for all the automation that's happening, whether it is oil, gas, or chemical manufacturing. They often have to set up a computer at the back and watch the other stuff to get alerts. In these autonomous or on-premises environments, they often don't have access to email readily. Integration with other industrial solutions, such as HMIS, will allow them to communicate and get an alert that something has been found. This way, they can react to it sooner than having somebody watch the screen and keep checking the screen. Rockwell has its own suite. Similarly, Honeywell has its own suite. There's also an independent HMI/historian solution provider out there called VTSCADA. We actually get asked if we can get it to show up on a screen, which is difficult. Getting those alerts to work within an industrial environment would be a huge plus.""While you are working, you are finding these things that were supposed to be waived have come back to being blocked. That's frustrating.""We would like to see secure integration and multi-factor authentication to be able to access the administration dashboard.""I would like to see them fix the alerting system so that the endpoint reporting is a bit more streamlined.""The product needs to continue to offer better alerts. In particular, around false positives. It needs to reduce them from happening."

More Blackberry Protect Cons →

"Intrusion detection and intervention seem to be falling behind the competition.""A policy-editing console should be added.""MVISION Endpoint is only compatible with Windows 10 and Windows 2016 and above. If I were using a Linux operating system, I would not be able to use MVISION Endpoint.""I would like to see more local integration for the applications that we use.""The initial setup can be a bit complicated for those unfamiliar with the product.""Endpoint resource utilization causes high levels of instability and that is something that needs improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The visibility that we have into the endpoint and the forensics that we're able to collect give us value for the price. This is not an overly expensive solution, considering all the things that are provided. You get great performance and value for the cost."
  • "Whenever you are doing the licensing process, I would highly advise to look at what other Cisco solutions you have in your organization, then evaluate if an Enterprise Agreement is the best way to go. In our case, it was the best way to go. Since we had so many other Cisco products, we were able to tie those in. We were actually able to get several Cisco security solutions for less than if we had bought three or four Cisco security solutions independently or ad hoc."
  • "In our case, it is a straightforward annual payment through our Enterprise Agreement."
  • "Our company was very happy with the price of Cisco AMP. It was about a third of what we were paying for System Center Endpoint Protection."
  • "There are a couple of different consumption models: Pay up front, or if you have an enterprise agreement, you can do a monthly thing. Check your licensing possibilities and see what's best for your organization."
  • "The Enterprise Agreement is like an all-you-can-eat buffet of Cisco products. In that vein, it was very affordable."
  • "We can know if something bad is potentially happening instantaneously and prevent it from happening. We can go to a device and isolate it before it infects other devices. In our environment, that's millions of dollars saved in a matter of seconds."
  • "The pricing and licensing are reasonable. The cost of AMP for Endpoints is inline with all the other software that has a monthly endpoint cost. It might be a little bit higher than other antivirus type products, but we're only talking about a dollar a month per user. I don't see that cost as being an issue if it's going to give us the confidence and security that we're looking for. We have had a lot of success and happiness with what we're using, so there's no point in changing."

  • "The monthly fee is $55 USD per user."
  • "The product cost is about $5, per user, per month."
  • "This cost of the license is approximately $5 USD monthly per user."
  • "It's not so heavily priced; rather, it's average and decent."
  • "We pay our license on a yearly basis and have just renewed for two years."
  • More Blackberry Protect Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The pricing is mid-ranged and quite reasonable compared to other similar products."
  • "Licensing fees are billed on a yearly basis."
  • "MVISION is intended as an enterprise product and it is priced like one. This solution is within the price range of competitors at the enterprise level."
  • "Customers would need to purchase a license. If a customer purchases an MVISION Endpoint license, he may use that license to install ENS. It's a flexible license where you have the option to either use the McAfee security software or the Windows Defender managed by McAfee, which is MVISION Endpoint."
  • "It is based on an annual subscription."

    Overview

    Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) is subscription-based, managed through a web-based management console, and deployed on a variety of platforms that protects endpoints, network, email and web Traffic. AMP key features include the following: Global threat intelligence to proactively defend against known and emerging threats, Advanced sandboxing that performs automated static and dynamic analysis of files against more than 700 behavioral indicators, Point-in-time malware detection and blocking in real time and Continuous analysis and retrospective security regardless of the file's disposition and Continuous analysis and retrospective security.

    Blackberry Protect is a next generation artificial intelligence (AI) based endpoint protection platform (EPP) that prevents breaches and provides added controls for safeguarding against sophisticated cyberthreats. It uses predictive analysis to quickly and accurately find even the most advanced threats before they ever take place. Blackberry Protect’s cloud-based supercomputer mines hundreds of millions of files from all over the cloud, allowing it to predict and stop any hacker dead in their tracks.

    Blackberry Protect runs on a lightweight agent and requires no internet connection. Instead of taking up massive amounts of computing power, it typically requires less than 1% of a system’s available computing resources. In addition, it only needs to be upgraded if the model is improved, which means that you can run it on your local servers and have constant and uninterrupted access to it.

    Benefits of Blackberry Protect

    Some of the benefits of using Blackberry Protect include:

    • The use of advanced AI analytics to provide extremely fast protection. The solution scans any and all applications that attempt to execute commands in your system. If it determines that the application is a threat, then it will respond to the threatening action within milliseconds. The anti-viral software will cancel or disallow any actions that the application attempts to initiate.
    • Minimizing of potential threats by cutting off the access of unauthorized devices. Blackberry Protect allows users to determine which devices are allowed to run on their network. It enforces the security rules that your system administrators set and denies hackers the ability to penetrate your system through unapproved devices.
    • Uses less computing power while still providing your system with a robust level of protection. Blackberry Protect runs on a lightweight agent that requires you to devote a fraction of the computing power that similar solutions require. This ensures that your system does not have to sacrifice security for processing power.

    Reviews from Real Users

    The Blackberry Protect software stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are the artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms that the solution uses to detect and deal with threats and the ability to scale your level of protection according to your needs.

    PeerSpot user Donald D., the owner of Terra Controls, notes the value of having both artificial intelligence and machine learning in a single product when he writes, “The most valuable feature is the AI and ML-based virus protection that does not rely on signature-based detection methods. The way this product works is that it does not go to a central server to pick up the latest virus definitions. Instead, it's a processor-powered search that checks to see if anything out of the ordinary is running on your machine. It looks for anomalies and cancels processes that do not look normal. For example, if a program tries to read the registry and then make a change, but it hasn't been authorized, then it is assumed to be a bad actor and the process is canceled or the action is disallowed.”

    PeerSpot user Orlando B., Head of Systems at SKN Caribecafe Ltda, noted how this program is not a one-size-fits-all solution when he writes, “The solution is very good at quickly and easily changing the levels of protection for each computer and server. It's very easy to control and to see what is happening with each computer. It's very easy to choose which computer I can look at and check.”

    McAfee MVISION Endpoint delivers enhanced detection and correction capabilities to augment native Microsoft Windows security controls, which are always up to date. Machine learning, credential theft monitoring, and rollback remediation boost the basic security built into the Windows and effectively combat advanced, zero-day threats.
