Actually I've never used any of them. I only used Sophos Intercept X, CylanceProtect and now Deep Instinct. Otherwise I only tried home solutions

So Shadow Defender has no issue working in Win 11? Still going strong despite its discontinuation and support?

😁

yeah its fine i might remove
Yup, if Trellix has system (not just files) remediation capability then Shadow Defender is not needed.

A few questions

1) Why you choose an end point security software for home use over say a top-notch AV/AM like Bitdefender/Kaspersky/Norton etc?

2) Does your risk factors justify the use of an endpoint security software? Can't a top-notch AV/AM do the job?

Thanks

well. i just like trellix for some reason and it has better detection rates than norton and in some cases bitdefender. And its built for enterprise so the protection is really good.

Ok. Also more expensive than a home use AV/AM software

It uses McAfee engine. Seems look like it's McAfee endpoint.

Anyway it has comprehensive backup and rollback in case of a ransomware attack. It's as good as a 3rd-party one. This is superior than others which come with files rollback only or no rollback at all. Looks like you need to add another paid module for this feature
