It’s crazy, they were on my shortlist when I was in the market and honestly one of the only reasons we didn’t go with them was because my CEO couldn’t pronounce the name of it and it was super annoying listening to him try… so I went with Sophos. I’m no longer with that company though. I use Cylance now and it’s pretty legit so far.

You’re singing the right tune - lots of Cylance alumni working here at Automox 🙂

Only two of us…for now 🙂
