"The dashboard is beautiful, overall easy of use, and the UBA and NBA features are valued."
"We are protecting all our workstations."
"I have found the continued support and pretty much all the features to be valuable. They all stand out as being positive. It continues to detect unusual activity when it's supposed to, and so far we haven't had any issues."
"The feature that I have found most valuable is that the configuration and the usage of the product are not so complicated. For people responsible for using this infrastructure for the first line of workstation monitoring, it's quite easy to use."
"The most valuable feature is the monitored support behind it."
"We are using almost all of the features and we find it quite good overall."
"It's transparent, so it's not something where every user has to press a button to download or do the thing. It is centralized, in fact. Personally, I use Malwarebytes and other tools, which are fine for home use. Cynet is also relatively silent in terms of operation, except when it's required to act."
"It provides good protection from ransomware and malware attacks. It is very good as compared to other products. If any threat is there, their support is very good. They immediately respond to the users and do a follow-up. They call us and also provide email support."
"It does its job — it protects us from viruses. We don't really interact with it very much."
"It's quite simple to use and user friendly."
"We find all features valuable. It has zero-day protection, which is the most valuable feature of Intercept X. We have Intercept X with EDR. EDR is a very important feature. It gives an idea about the source of a particular attack. An administrator gets to know everything, which helps in understanding the things that need to be done or protected in the organization. Based on this information, an administrator can decide what needs to open or allowed in the network. Without EDR, Intercept X is like an antivirus, and the administrator won't get to know the things going on at the organizational level. I recommend purchasing an EDR solution for every organization."
"Very stable solution."
"The solution is overall quite good, the services are performing well. It is very good for those who are using standard PC configurations. It does not block their system up by taking up a lot of resources."
"There do not seem to be any limitations to the scalability of this product."
"The initial setup is pretty straightforward."
"The patches on offer are very helpful."
"Compliance reports need to improve."
"The inability to add contact information inside the Cynet is also an issue because it makes things more complicated. I would like to have a simple feature to enter a contact name and number for the person taking care of that unit or that server."
"In terms of what could be improved, I would say the usability of this product for new threats. Meaning, not everything which is new is properly seen by the product and not all the required actions are taken."
"Most of their times are in Greenwich Mean Time. I would like to see more local time zones."
"Linux servers are not supported."
"The solution just needs to keep maturing and they need to keep up with the threat landscape to ensure they're protecting clients well as time passes."
"Its dashboard is not so good. On the dashboard, they don't show the count for client endpoints, which is a failure of this product. This count should be shown on the dashboard. I have 1,000 clients, but I can't see it anywhere on the dashboard."
"I would like to see support for mobile protection and some additional reports included."
"The ADR functionalities feel like they aren't mature enough. It hasn't been a long time since Sophos has offered reproduction. Due to the fact that it's so young, it has fewer functionalities than other and more mature ADR solutions."
"Deployment on cloud needs to be carried out manually."
"Intercept X needs more reporting and device management features, so I can get messages from PCs that let me know if I need to do something with them."
"The initial setup can be difficult if you don't come in with at least some knowledge about the product."
"This product does not handle USB drives well."
"When there is an event generated by either the firewall or Intercept X, and the originating IP address is the same, these should be merged into a single event rather than two."
"We would like to deploy across a variety of machines simultaneously through the network."
"If we can lower the price, it will be fantastic because it will generate more revenue for us."
