Avoid attacks by 2-way DNS filtering

Very useful. Big help as users will click on links or try to enter suspicious websites

PROS

Easy to use and highly effective. Short time from implementing to full use as all settings are predefined - you can of course change those.

CONS

It cost money :-) Heimdal separate functions in new modules. Everybody needs to make money but some functions could be under existing modules.

Reason for choosing Heimdal Threat Prevention

Heimdal has great support and an easy to use dashboard. Symantec do not have 2-way DNS filtering

They just get it right!

Great Co, Great Product and excellent customer service - Heimdal Security stand proud for showing the industry how it should be done!

PROS

It's not just the feature rich software its that fact that this company stand right behind their product with nothing short of excellent support. They know it's important to get to clients promptly and they know they need to have actionable knowledge. They excel at both.

CONS

the web ui is a little cluttered and not easy to navigate. I'm learning to live with it's foibles and the Pros outway the cons.

Reason for choosing Heimdal Threat Prevention

too expensive and not available to smaller clients.

Reasons for switching to Heimdal Threat Prevention

BitDefender are rubbish when it comes to support and the product is tired.

Heimdal - Does the job

The install was incredibly straight forward, and we've barely had to touch it since. We use it for ourselves and recommend it to all of our customers.

PROS

The best feature is its complete ease of use. To the untrained, it may look like it doesn't have many features. But that's because it is all managed from behind, and you don't need to touch it on the endpoint.

CONS

We do have the occasional oddity where a program stops working or a port is blocked, and this can be Heimdal being too over protective.

Reason for choosing Heimdal Threat Prevention

If you combine all of the features offered, and the price it would take to purchase all the features differently, it made complete sense. So it was a financial decision.

Reasons for switching to Heimdal Threat Prevention

The features which Heimdal offer, far outweighed ESETs offerings.

CONS

It is based in another country, and customer support is on different hours.

Heimdal had many more options available.

Reasons for switching to Heimdal Threat Prevention

Webroot has no customer service. When we had an issue, I had to read through pages of technical papers online. And the solution was not acceptable.
