Rated 3 out of 5 by from Detects and prevents attacks that are exploring common software vulnerabilities. Valuable Features:SONAR/Auto-Protect feature and Generic Exploit Mitigation: Can detect and prevent attacks that are exploring common software vulnerabilities. It monitors suspicious files that have behavior actions on memory, network, etc. The console and admin features are the main qualities.Improvements to My Organization:In a large environment, it is a challenge to manage what areas can have specific rights or functions enabled or disabled, considering their needs. SEP had the opportunity to integrated Microsoft Active Directory structure into the SEP Admin console. Based on that, it was easier for me to apply specific policies for different business areas with different users. For instance: Enable USB rights only for C-level users/Disable SONAR feature for marketing team considering their needs.Room for Improvement:Reports: It would be nice to have customized reports integrated on the main console with no additional DB server or BI server.Vulnerabilities: A vulnerability scan integrated with SEP would be important for the admin to understand the risk level they are facing and how to protect themselves against it, with KB and vulnerability ID.The endpoint advanced malware detection is complex to configure and local admins keep them disabled or not well configured most of the time.Use of Solution:We have used this solution for six or seven years.Deployment Issues:We had some issues during deployment. When doing a 40.000 McAfee migration nodes for SEP, I have faced challenges removing specific MacAfee features where SEP has no supportability. Compared to other vendors, like Kaspersky, they have scripts to remove all anti-virus solutions in the market before installing KL AV. And it is 100% possible to automate the job over the KL console.Another challenge was customize all best practices vs. best protection for the company vs. not creating any performance impact on the customer.Technical Support:Technical support is good. You can open tickets over international numbers, emails, or the website. If you open a ticket in your time-zone, you will work with a technical support representative in your local language. Otherwise, it will be in English.Previous Solutions:We used Kaspersky and Bitdefender. We switched due to the company reputation, negotiation terms, commercial benefits, and technical results on the PoC.Implementation Team:The implementation was through a Symantec reseller. Considering the environment complexity, it is important to always plan, test, correct all errors, plan again, and attack departments with low risks, learn with the errors, adjust the plan, and move forward to next department.Cost and Licensing Advice:Migrating a platform for a different one, most of the time, has a higher cost. However, considering the impact, risk , downtime, and principally, the low support quality provided that the oldest solution provided, were the main reason to start look forward for a newer one. These were the main reason that I migrated to Symantec. After a year of augmenting many open tickets and find internal customer satisfaction was really low, we convinced the board that it was time to migrate before having a huge impact for the business and company reputation.Regarding the licensing, it was important negotiate a long contract to get a more attractive price, including advanced support in case of crisis.Other Advice:Always try to include hours for the project in the budget. Always look for a specialized reseller who the vendor recognizes through a certified and approved reseller.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Problem free and effective AV It is unacceptable for an organisation to be without some form of Anti-virus protection. Symantec Endpoint Protection was a product we picked because we were coming off of Sophos as the charity discount expired. Charities tend to shop around for AV yearly to take advantage of discounts to standard pricing.Whilst this means install costs (time and/or money) it means we get to experience a lot of products and vendors. Now, that is a good and bad thing.We had some teething problems on install. It wasn't the product at fault per se but the IT Company who installed a 2011 version instead of the current 2013 version. This resulted in multiple BSOD for our W7 users. I used Symantec support and logged an online ticket. Literally, within 10mins I had a call from a Symantec support engineer. I supplied the log files. 20mins later I had a suggested fix - which was an install of the correct version. I then had another couple of calls over the next week to check that the problem was corrected. Yes, our fault but it did highlight the level of support Symantec give you. This is a small thing to watch out for.My issue with AVs is they can be like running a marathon in treacle - slow and unpleasant. Symantec didn't have that problem. It was inoffensive, with minimal pop-ups and scans that didn't slow down machines running W7, dual core and 3GB RAM. There aren't the best user machines in the world but they had no problem handling the installed AV.The management console on the server kept track of any recurring issues and e-mailed reports to me. It also highlighted an infection on someone's machine in real time. This allowed me to get to the user and pop them on a laptop whilst we scrubbed the virus. The graphical reports were handy to provide proof of any KPIs for my monthly reporting process.Endpoint protection is more than just AV. It features Symantec Insight and SONAR. They basically deal with zero day threats - okay, it simply won't catch everything but I've yet to find an AV that will. It's performed just fine. We had the odd catch and then it bubbled under the surface, tirelessly checking our systems for bad stuff. This is a great way of reducing reputational risk to your organisation.Symantec Endpoint ProtectionBrowser protection did prevent some users visiting scam sites or those genuinely deemed to be distributing malware (that we then blocked using OpenDNS).Updates were pushed via GUP (group update provider) and any machines that, for whatever reason, were not included, ended up on my report.Our W7 machines, Servers and the Macs were able to be protected. Yes, this is common these days but it's worth a mention. It also handled our VMs well - some of them using quite ancient software.On the whole it did exactly what it was meant to do - protected the servers and end users seamlessly and gave us access to reporting that meant showing we'd hit KPIs was easy.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The valuable features are device control, SONOR, and anti-virus. Valuable Features:The valuable features are device control, SONOR, and anti-virus.Device control in Symantec is not limited to only some devices. You can add any device you want, so that it can become a part of the policy you made. The anti-virus feature is very good.Improvements to My Organization:It helps me with the security policies that I make. I can change policies quickly and easily.Room for Improvement:I would like to see improvements in the anti-virus and the device control features.Anti-Virus: I would like to see Symantec improve the ant-virus to stop and detect Ransomware and email attachments. Symantec is weak with Ransomware. I would like to see the anti-spam for Outlook improve the scanning and blocking of attachments.Device control: I would like to see an improvement in the USB control, because it sometimes creates a conflict with USB printers.Use of Solution:I have been using this solution since 2006.Stability Issues:There were no stability issues.Customer Service:Customer service is very good.Technical Support:I used technical support through a vendor and they were very good.Initial Setup:The initial setup was easy and I had no problem with it.Other Solutions Considered:I evaluated other options like McAfee and Sophos, but they weren’t good enough for me.Other Advice:This is very good product. My advice is to calculate your needs. Make a decision based on an accurate assessment of the price, the licensing, and the support.When I choose a product, I look for stability, security, and safety.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All-in-one endpoint security Valuable Features:This handles not just anti-virus, but a wide collection of other protective features including device and application control, network-based intrusions, and phishing attacks. It can also scan virtual machines too.Room for Improvement:The reputation system relies on having a constant Internet connection for its operations.Other Advice:There are three versions, include a cloud-based one, that are very flexible and easy to install and manage.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
