Anti Ransomware

Hi All,

 

I am currently looking at Anti Ransomware and am wondering whether there are advantages with 3rd party vendors who use FPolicy or if the offering from NetApp using Cloud Insights and Cloud Secure is a good proposition.  Are there any 3rd party vendors who are leading the way and other 3rd party vendors who should be avoided?

 

I've spent a bit of time looking into CryptoSpike from ProLion and have found the listed 3rd party vendors here:

Any advice or caution would be welcome.

 

Thanks,

Ben

ISVs who provide solutions based on FPolicy are NetApp partners, so it's not very likely that someone from NetApp would suggest to avoid them.

 

Each of those choices isn't just a GUI for FPolicy - they do other things and provide other features, so for certain use case one may be better than others, and sometimes it simply depends on one's preferences.

 

List your must-have requirements and check them against the features offered by each, compare pricing, support and other basic things and maybe check external, 3rd party (as well as each vendor's?) forums for user feedback?
