    Hey everyone,

    just looking for some AV recommendations,

    Due to an issue with our wholesaler our SEP licensing has expired so were up for new licensing costs instead of renewals. (something i cannot change unfortunately)

    I thought i'd seek some info as I've been using SEP for a very long time (better the devil you know) and wondering if there are better offerings for similar pricing?

    We currently have licensing for 60 endpoints.

    All clients are Win10 and using outlook from O365 hosted exchange.

    or do I just bite the bullet and re-purchase SEP?

    What are the business requirements?

    Does Windows 10 meet them with it's inbuilt stuff?

    Do you SCCM?

    Also, I gather you have E3 licensing then, thought about intune compliance + defender?

    not enough love for defender IMO.
    It seems to do the job well enough.

    not sure what's required to manage it on multiple devices besides SCCM (which is a big fucking hammer for only 60 seats).

    having said that, I've started using sophos recently for a particular project we have going at the moment and it also seems quite good.
    web based installer is a bit shitty for deployment.
    In my case the computers were not joined to a domain but i assume if they were i could push it to them easier.

    Better than that.
    It can do pie charts in excel.

    Probably.

    With drop shadows in the corporate colours as per the style manual in the correct font?

    ELT can only read the corporate font.

    It read like a shitpost, but it was a serious question. Last time we looked at Intune/Defender/Windows Security/Whatever The Fuck its called now. its "Enterprise Reporting" was lacking compared to the reports we were able to pull from the AV console, having a history of reports available for proof of "anti virus" was a tickbox on some auditors checklist somewhere, which was the real business driver, any actual "endpoint protection" was a secondary beneft.

    Webroot SecureAnywhere is another option. Lightweight, does the job well. Yet to see anyone get crypto'd while using it. Very economical pricing also. PM me for a quote if you like.

    ahahahaha no.

    It absolutely happens.

    If you can afford it - Defender ATP is the best solution out.

    I'd be curious to see the system that was crypto'd with webroot on it and webroot support wasn't able to recover it. Webroot journals all changes by unknown processes, which in itself can lead to drive space issues on some systems, but it also makes it possible to recover just about anything that's done to a system. Webroot support will also bend themselves in half to recover a system that something got through on.

    I'd happily cast my vote to webroot anyway, in combination with opendns, we just don't get hit with anything these days.

    We are currently switching from SEP to Cisco AMP

    So far it has been really good

    We are moving from Sophos to Cylance, it seems pretty good and has alerted on things Sophos has missed

    is that because sophos actually missed them or because it wasn't configured to look for them?

    Sophos wasn't scanning inside the zip until extraction was happening. Cylance picked it up straight away. Config of the AV isn't my area so unsure on it's config

    minor issue i know and wasn't the reason for change
