Pricing Advice

What users are saying about Panda Security Adaptive Defense pricing:
  • "I don't think Panda's license is too expensive, but they're charging more than it's worth. It's a yearly license. For 1,000 endpoints, it's around $18,000."
  • "Panda is cloud-only and comes at a reasonable cost. It is a set price per seat."
  • "The licensing is subscription-based and priced well compared to other endpoint security solutions."
  • "The licensing costs are not too high. We pay about 20 Euros a year. It's a reasonable amount to pay."
  • "The price of this solution depends on the number of licenses that you are purchasing."

Managing multiple machines is a pain, but support is top notch

Pros and Cons

  • "It prevents our users from circumventing security. Everything is password protected so they can't get into it. They can't uninstall it. They can't do anything."
  • "It needs improvements in its EDR and its ability to manage all the nodes. I'd like better communication between the console and the nodes, so I don't have to remote into each individual machine that's having an issue with the protection."

What is our primary use case?

We use it for our endpoint security solution for 1,000 machines worldwide. We're one of the largest machine shops in the world. In just one building, I've got over 500 machines in there. Some of them are old and come from the World War II era. Some of my machines, like my laser hole poppers, are still running Windows 3.1. I've got a lot of older lathes and mills that are running Windows 95 and Windows 98.

How has it helped my organization?

It hasn't improved our company in any way. Panda is the most painful endpoint solution I've ever had to work with except SentinelOne. With Panda, if the protection is turned off or there is a problem on a machine, you have to access that machine remotely to fix it. You can't fix it via the console. I'm the network admin and security admin at my company I don't have the bandwidth to babysit an endpoint solution. 

What is most valuable?

It prevents our users from circumventing security. Everything is password protected so they can't get into it. They can't uninstall it. They can't do anything. 

What needs improvement?

It needs improvements in its EDR and its ability to manage all the nodes. I'd like better communication between the console and the nodes, so I don't have to remote into each individual machine that's having an issue with the protection. The console's intended purpose is to manage and I've got half the management capabilities in their console. I've got almost 1,000 machines worldwide. As one person, I don't have the capacity to take care of this.

For how long have I used the solution?

We adopted this one about three years ago.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's good for all platforms— iOS, Windows, Android, Linux—so its scalability is there.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support has always been top-notch when you can get through. Sometimes you're on hold for up to an hour, but their technical support has always been able to address the issue and get it resolved within 48 hours.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to Panda, we had SentinelOne. Panda is a lot less work than SentinelOne in our environment. We still use a lot of Excel macros. We've got applications that we created ourselves and are unsigned. We work with machines with extremely old operating systems, and these things run off of applications that we have built in-house. SentinelOne wanted to shut down the applications so that the machines couldn't connect. It was costing us money. I can't give SentinelOne a bad review just because of our environment. Our environment is very unique, so it's not fair to SentinelOne. But at the same time, we just weren't made for each other. 

How was the initial setup?

The setup is pretty easy. Deployment takes less than an hour. It's typically connected to the console, so it has already downloaded the latest and greatest updates or file hashes. Creating groups and policies for those groups can be a little complex but once you've got all that figured out, then you're good. The console needs a lot of help. Even downloading the installer for a new deployment on a PC is not very straightforward. 

What about the implementation team?

I have an in-house team. I've got two help desk guys that I've had to train to use the Panda tenant. I don't even know if they're doing it anymore — touching every machine that has a problem with the protection.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I don't think Panda's license is too expensive, but they're charging more than it's worth. It's a yearly license. For 1,000 endpoints, it's around $18,000. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We're considering switching to something else. Right now we're looking at ESET Endpoint Security and Trend Micro Apex One. Panda's EDR is rudimentary, so we're looking to upgrade because our insurance policy is asking us to find something better. Right now, we're leaning toward Trend because they're telling me that I can do everything from the console with their solution. That was the biggest pain with Panda.  

What other advice do I have?

I'd rate Panda five out of 10. I give it that high just because it does work to some extent and it's cost-effective. My attitude toward Panda is 50/50. I get probably 10 or 15 emails a day complaining that machines lack protection. But if the console can detect the machine and knows that it's lacking protection, then my logic says, "Update it." But for whatever reason, I have to manually do it again. It's painful. It shouldn't be as expensive as it is. And I think it's going to be a lot more expensive now that WatchGuard owns it. Hopefully, they make a lot of good changes, but I've had enough with Panda.

Another thing to note about Panda is that I haven't seen anything in the documentation about compliance with GDPR regulations. I've got 11 locations in Europe, and we're going to have a GDPR tenant for the most stringent country or area. So even being in the US, I'll have to abide by European GDPR here in the US for all the locations to share one tenant. Otherwise, we'd have to have multiple tenants, which will cost us more money and be more of a hassle to manage. 

Before you install it, do a 90-day proof of concept. Thirty days is too short. You need to see the failing endpoints and what you have to do to fix it.

Simple enough to be used by a non technical specialist but it needs better threat intelligence

Pros and Cons

  • "It's very easy to deploy, we don't have any problem or issues. It's most full automatic. It basically takes the assumption that everything is supposed to be a suspect; files, processes, URL accesses, and so on."
  • "The gap between the two final conclusions is a problem, whether or not a file is known to be malware or is known to be safe."

What is most valuable?

It's very easy to deploy, we don't have any problem or issues with it. It's almost full automatic. It basically makes the assumption that everything is supposed to be suspicious; files, processes, URL accesses, and so on. Everything is checked once in the cloud and it's assessed as malware or safe. You're free to use it. It's simple enough to be used by a non-specialist, by regular users. You don't need a large security team to manage it. 

What needs improvement?

The gap between the two final conclusions is a problem, whether or not a file is known to be malware or is known to be safe. There is a gap between this space which means that some time in which the attestation service works on the conclusion it might regenerate this gap through the communication process. For example, if an employee gets his laptop and goes somewhere where it doesn't have full access to Panda Cloud, meaning the attestation service in the Panda Cloud, it will lose the connection and it cannot promptly receive the attestation conclusion.

If you travel or something like that or there's a lapse in time in which the lack of the conclusion regarding a required item like a file or process or whatever, is lacking. Panda understood it might be a huge problem for the whole solution. They resolved it in a way that I don't like. They assumed that there is a knowledgeable person in the customer security team that will assume the conclusion and will either set that everything is supposed to be malware or everything is supposed to be safe, unless it's attested by the Panda Cloud. There are just these two options. You have a checkbox and you just check or uncheck the checkbox, meaning you assume that the non-attested item is assumed to be malware. If you put the checkmark, it is assumed to be safe. Either conclusion means we will have either false positives or false negatives. This is an issue they didn’t solve well.

They didn't solve this issue well first of all because it is only a single checkbox to do this. As a suggestion, they could use several similar checkboxes, for example, one for executable files, one for malware detections or suspicions, and so on. You either treat unattested items as malware or either as safe items, which is not good.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Panda Security Adaptive Defense for fourteen months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I haven't had any crashes. I recall having some issues deploying agents on Linux distributions, but I don't recall which distributions. It is possible that they have some issues there. The way they distributed agents seems like they rebuilt some packages and then activated them into the OS, which is not a good way of distributing software. It requires a specific set of libraries and OS modules. If your distribution doesn't have it, it might end in an installment crash on that endpoint. 

Stability depends on the networking because getting network connectivity interruptions on the endpoints breaks the continuous state of the security.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is good for small and medium-sized companies. 

How are customer service and technical support?

They have a lot of support sites. I haven't need to contact them for support.

How was the initial setup?

It is remarkably easy to deploy. 

The time it takes to deploy depends on the customer infrastructure of course. I think a medium 1000 endpoint infrastructure could take around one day. You can use the group policy if you integrate with a local domain or something. They provide several tools to deploy it. It's nice.

The amount of people required to deploy depends on the complexity of the infrastructure. If you have branch offices or sub-networks distributed regionally or geographically, you probably will need more than one person.

If you have Active Directory across multi-domain distribution and so on, your team should be more than one person. For smaller customers, I assume one well-trained security person could do the work in one day.

What other advice do I have?

The attestation paradigm is specific to Panda. I haven't found it anywhere else as strongly enforced into the solution.

My advice would be to follow the general rules, do a trial, learn about it well. Test it in a test environment, change the settings according to your customer-specific needs, and then implement it if you find it has advantages.

In the next release, I would like for them to add DDR features, threat intelligence, and more analytics. It lacks in that area. It should be integrated better with CMS and other useful enterprise applications and tools.

Threat intel also needs improvement. If I was a security analyst, employed in a company and my boss asked me what I think about this solution, the first place I’d look is where the threat intel is. It just lacks this. It is well hidden in cloud attestation service.

I would rate it a seven out of ten.

Good remote management, excellent advanced protection, and very good overall functionality

Pros and Cons

  • "Their remote management (RMM) is very good."
  • "The only part I really don't use as much is their firewall. It's a bit superfluous. Most people have their own firewall in place, so they don't really need that part portion of the solution."

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use the solution for my clients. I'm a service provider.

It's used as an EDR, which is endpoint detection and response. The solution is used to protect my client's office and their practice.

What is most valuable?

Overall, I find the entire solution valuable.

Their remote management (RMM) is very good.

I use a portion of their advanced protection tool. It's great for monitoring and taking a deeper look at various scenarios.

I love the function of it and what it does. I love the graphics, the view. The actual dashboard is good. It has a lot of information. It's very useful.

What needs improvement?

The only part I really don't use as much is their firewall. It's a bit superfluous. Most people have their own firewall in place, so they don't really need that part portion of the solution.

Right now the biggest improvement they could implement would be on the administration side. I have to go between different logins. My purchase for my own internal use is totally different than what my clients are on. It's really difficult to try to manage both and to go back and forth in between them. You need to remind yourself: "Oh, I've got to log into this one or log into that one". It's a different portal for each one. Their portal is, to me, in need of a lot of work. It's just not very good. Its not very intuitive.

The solution really needs to update its entire platform.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for a couple of years now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Once you got it up and running and are using it, it's great. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's my understanding that they're very easily scaled across a smaller organization. I work with small businesses. However, if a company had to scale from small to large, it's my understanding that they are not very scalable. It's limited.

I use it exclusively right now. If my clients need me to, I would increase usage in the future.

How are customer service and technical support?

I don't use technical support that often, so I don't have much of a need for them. However, when I talked to them in the past, I noticed that they were not here in America. They're actually based in Spain. They just got purchased, however. My understanding is that the company just got acquired by WatchGuard. I don't know how this will affect the support in the future. A lot of things will probably change.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used multiple different products. I switched to them because they had a SIEM behind it. That's really the only reason.

I used to use iShare. iShare went out of business. When that happened, I had to switch from that. They were kind of like an EDR, however,  they still offered more antivirus type items instead of EDR. Panda, on the other hand, has the EDR plus a SIEM behind it and I'm really an advocate for SIEMs.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is pretty complex. It's not straightforward. They were not meant to be set up for the MSP model, which is month to month. They're more based on an old model, which involves buying so many licenses for the computer. It's hard to do. They haven't really upgraded their methods, at least for the last three years. 

I couldn't even use the systems management because it wasn't a part of the license. Their patch management still isn't up to date and ready for the MSP side of things. There are parts of the whole process that are just off.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Now that the company has been acquired, I'm under the impression they're currently changing a lot of their pricing.

The pricing has different levels. The full cost depends on what you want. I personally am using a few different items. It's not a simple flat fee. 

It is complicated to get pricing. If I needed to add a new client, I would have to go and ask them what the pricing is every time. Or, I have to look up emails that they sent me that have information on pricing.

What other advice do I have?

I'm a consultant and reseller.

I'd advise other organizations to try the solution. That's all I can say. There are so many different aspects of it and so many different pieces that you can put it together depending on what you're using it for. The solution itself is great. It's just all the other stuff around it that is sometimes difficult.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. If it wasn't for the dated platform, I'd rate it a bit higher.

Zero day protection on the cloud that is effective and reasonably priced

Pros and Cons

  • "Panda Security solution has a feature to block any unknown process and that is what is best about it."
  • "They need to expand their offering of add-ons to enhance capabilities further."

What is our primary use case?

I work in a company that implements firewall solutions. I am a systems integrator, not a customer. In the simplest sense, my primary use of this solution is to have as an option for our clients.  

In our company, we try to use every product we sell and implement in order to know how it works and if it is any good. We cannot represent products well if we are not familiar with them.

How has it helped my organization?

Panda Security has improved my organization because it gives us another option to present to customers and potential customers to fit their needs and usage.  

What is most valuable?

In essence, Panda Security is a lot like every other antivirus product. It has protection from zero-day exploits which is the most important feature out of any of the solutions. It is similar to zero-day malware or ransomware protection in that it can protect you from anything that you need protection from that is yet unknown. 

Panda Security has a feature to block any unknown process and that is what is best about it.  

Another valuable feature is the ease-of-use. We have one big client — big for our country — that has 250 licenses. I think they are very satisfied with Panda Security because it is quite simple to use. Users just want to have something that is more easy-to-use and that is it. They don't care a lot about everything else.  

What needs improvement?

The product can improve in several ways. I think the most important improvement would be in the area of modification. They have add-ons that can be used to add functionality to the base package like encryption or patch management. But they could do much more to improve the catalog of modifications and offer more. My impression is that they only have a few options. I'm not sure if they have an iOS version. I know that they have an Android version. But they could be improving and expanding the product options much more to make it more universal and with more capability.  

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Panda since coming to this organization but my previous company did work with the product as well. So in total, I have been using it for two years, more-or-less.  

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is quite a stable solution. I have never seen or experienced any issues with it.  

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of the solution is very good. It can be expanded very easily. They just add your licenses on the portal since it is on the cloud. When they add your licenses to the portal you are ready to use it.  

In my company, we have about 30 users using the product. We have clients who have up to about 250 users.  

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not complex. Once you go through the setup of one console, it is easy to use. But it always depends on the customer. How many applications they have to allow requires additional setup.  

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing for Panda is reasonable. It is cloud-only at a reasonable cost. It is set as price per seat.  

What other advice do I have?

Advice that I would give to anyone deploying Panda Security is to tell them to block every process except the known ones. In this case, you will start in the best situation and with the safest approach. It is better to block every unknown or new process because these can be threats. You can then unblock those that you want to have running. For example, if you add new processes or discover processes that were blocked and should not be, you can just unblock or add them.  

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this product as about an eight out of ten. They still need to improve a lot of features and they need to work on and add to the knowledge base that can be accessed by users and customers.  

If they add the features for expanding the add-ons and improve their mobile application support, that would give them a nine out of ten.

Easy to implement, fine security granularity, and good reporting

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the web filter application control."
  • "The Linux installation is performed on the command line and they need a package installer for that operating system."

What is our primary use case?

We are a system integrator and this is one of the products that we implement for our clients.

We set up Panda Security Adaptive Defense for endpoint protection.

How has it helped my organization?

Since implementing this solution, we have not had any trouble with malware.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the web filter application control.

This solution is very easy to implement.

The granularity of security is very good because we can create different groups that are categorized, for example, by the department. There are policies in place to assist with this.

The reports are good and help us to better manage our system.

What needs improvement?

The Linux installation is performed on the command line and they need a package installer for that operating system.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with Panada Security for six months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable, at least for now. We haven't experienced any issues or received any reports that the endpoint has crashed or it is missing from the network. Overall, it seems to be performing well and is always functioning.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I think that Panda Security is scalable because you just need to install the package and it will adapt. You can perform cloud-based management. You can add as many subscriptions as you need to.

Our clients are in the banking industry and one of them has about 50 branches. They initially purchased about 500 licenses from us and they also have a corporate team that has another 300 licenses.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not contacted technical support by telephone or email. When I have run into problems, I just performed a Google search and used the knowledge base. That was enough to solve our problems.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have also worked with Sophos. It is a better solution but Panada Security is more economical and the feature set is good.

How was the initial setup?

It is hard to install and deploy on a Linux operating system.

What about the implementation team?

We implement this solution for our clients and train them with the knowledge required to manage and use it.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing is subscription-based and priced well compared to other endpoint security solutions. The price is good for the functionality that it provides.

What other advice do I have?

In general, this product is performing to our expectations. Of course, the best thing to do if you're going to purchase any product is to do a proof of concept first. There are limitations with any software but based on our experience, we are happy with Panda Security Adaptive Defense. That said, it is not perfect.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Good protection and alerts with a straightforward setup

Pros and Cons

  • "The product so far has been good at protecting us. We haven't faced a breach."
  • "Occasionally, we suffer from little bugs that give us the wrong message."

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution in our company, we use it on each device or city cars. We use it for security. The solution works in the background and protects us from viruses.

How has it helped my organization?

The solution protects our equipment and it works quietly in the background, so as not to disrupt employees. It makes sure we are free of viruses.

What is most valuable?

If ever something goes wrong, we get information from the panel or from tech on your PC. It alerts us to call support.

The system is automatically cleaned.

The product so far has been good at protecting us. We haven't faced a breach.

The initial setup is pretty straightforward. It's something that any company should be able to handle with ease.

What needs improvement?

Although the antivirus solution is so good that we've never suffered from an attack, we've had a few problems with false positives where they weren't correct. We received an error message and we had to fix bugs. Otherwise, it was relatively trouble-free. The solution could have more functionality for the administrators of the product. For end-users, it's fine. however administrators need ways to better track everything on the backend, especially the display of threats

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using the solution for about five years at this point. It's been a while. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have in the past suffered from bugs that would present the wrong message. It's a very small problem, overall. Other than that, it's mostly stable.

How was the initial setup?

The solution offers completely web-based installations. You have only to install it on one PC in an entire network. It allows you to mark every other workstation as possible clients or the software. You can click in solution and simply make different configurations between the installations. It's pretty straightforward. It's not too complex.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing costs are not too high. We pay about 20 Euros a year. It's a reasonable amount to pay.

What other advice do I have?

We're using the latest version of the solution. We're always updating the product.

We are just a customer and end-user of the product. We don't have a business relationship with the company.

I would rate the solution nine out of ten. For the most part, we have been very happy with it. 

We do plan to continue to use the solution into the future. We don't have plans to change anything.

Good antivirus and patch management, and it has the ability to do remote support

Pros and Cons

  • "The patch management module is very important."
  • "Improvements could be made in terms of how the reporting is structured."

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and this is one of the products that we implement for our clients.

This solution is used to assist cybersecurity.

What is most valuable?

This solution has different modules.

The most valuable module is antivirus, which has a whitelist mode that will block everything other than approved transactions. This gives us the ability to define different profiles in terms of the level of protection.

The patch management module is very important.

The systems management module, which can be used for asset inventory and for remote support, is very good.

This solution can scan the entire network and discover all of the systems where it is not installed.

What needs improvement?

Improvements could be made in terms of how the reporting is structured.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been dealing with Panda Security Adaptive Defense for about two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

My clients have not told me about any trouble with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have not had any feedback about scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is always available and I work with them a lot. They are excellent.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have not sold security solutions other than what is offered by Panda. However, I have personally worked with tools such as Kaspersky. The main difference with Panda is that it uses goodware instead of malware. All other antivirus solutions block know viruses using their definitions, whereas Panda, on the other hand, allows known software and applications and blocks everything else.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very straightforward.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price of this solution depends on the number of licenses that you are purchasing.

What other advice do I have?

This is a very good product. It may feel that it is a bit more expensive but in my experience, it is easily worth it. The core functionality of the product is very impressive and I recommend that people use it. That said, there is always room for improvement.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Good protection, stability, and support

Pros and Cons

  • "The protection from malware is the most important feature. It has some endpoint information about the vehicle of the virus, malware, etc. It is also stable and easy to install, and they also provide good technical support."
  • "It needs some improvements in the DNS security feature. Currently, it does not have full DNS security. It only has semi-DNS security, which can be improved. It is an important feature for us, and it would be really good if they can improve the DNS security feature. Our group has some plans to change to Cisco AMP, which has features such as DNS, Umbrella. We are trying to learn about Cisco AMP and compare it with Panda."

It has been stable until now.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

They provide good technical support. They are able to resolve our issues.

How was the initial setup?

It is easier than other endpoint protection solutions. The installation takes around 5 to 10 minutes, but we need to wait for a bit to connect to the cloud. It takes more than a day to set it up for a new company because it involves setting up security and policies.

What about the implementation team?

I implemented it in my current company. I had also implemented it in my previous company.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution for endpoint protection for other companies. We didn't have any major security issues.

I would rate Panda Security Adaptive Defense a nine out of ten.
