Instant Clone Endpoint Protection

For those who are using non-persistent Instant Clones in their VDI environment, what are people using for their Endpoint Protection solution?

We've tried a couple different vendors whose names I won't divulge and have had issues with both, some more serious than others, on our Win10 pools.  Protection is working, but the side effects vary from minor headaches to serious support issues.

So what product have people found success with for their Instant Clone VDI endpoints?

We don't use instant clones, we use non-persistant linked clones. For endpoint protection we use Palo Alto Traps. The key thing with any endpoint clients is you need VDI support. With Traps, I have to install it on the golden image and configure it in VDI mode. This helps a little with performance by pre-scanning the entire golden image, but it's mainly so the Traps client licenses get released when the user logs out.

You may want to take a look at Cylance as it has a smaller footprint/overhead compared to traditional protection software.
