I’ve been using Bitdefender the past year but the renewal is coming up and I want to switch products. I have simply been unable to solve accessing our corporate drives over VPN with the firewall enabled.
I know Kaspersky is highly regarded, but I am not going to support Russian products (not a fear of being spied on, just want to avoid supporting the economies of authoritarian states as much as possible (and it’s not completely possible)).
That has me looking at Sophos Home and currently have the trial installed. It doesn’t appear to have an actual firewall in the product? Should I have Windows Firewall enabled? Any other suggestions?
Also looking at ESET and Emsisoft. Thoughts or recommendations?
