Simple, install, and let it do it's job

A cleaner system and useless mail that I don't have to waste my time sifting through.

Pros

It really limits the amount of junk that get on your computers. Between email links and cookies, I used to wonder why my computer keeps slowing down. When I run the cleaner it speeds up but with Symantec it filters a lot of the junk.

Cons

I try to keep programs that require a lot of memory off my systems unless they are very important. This one is important.

Work very well in blocking spam email

Pros

The safety of our emails is critical, and Symantec's software has done an excellent job for me over the years. It's a one-time installation process that works nicely after you've set it up. It adds an extra layer of protection to our emails, preventing spam and other security threats to our whole inbox.

Cons

The price is essential to everyone, but I believe it is worthwhile for us to have previously been victims of email attacks. The vendor's future price planning will undoubtedly attract more customers. Other than that, the email quarantine is quite buggy, even after i have unmarked the email, it still not transferring the email to the main inbox.

Made To Get In Your Way

Pros

I guess this software is protecting my computer but I'd never know it by just looking at it. This app is installed by our IT department and heck if I understand how it protects.

Cons

I do know, however, that this app bothers you at the wrong time. How? By crashing your computer after completing an important task (and before you've had a chance to save). And if it's supposed to stop me from getting email spam, then I'd put the star rating at zero because I have to deal with spam daily.

Kept me up to date but for our use a little expensive

Ease of use and nothing to continually maintain myself - it all worked in the background for the most part so that does what we pay software to do - save time and therefore money.

Pros

It kept me up to date with the latest threats I needed to be aware of and to protect against. It has a easy to love GUI that is intuitive and lets me navigate where I want to with ease.

Cons

It can be a little slow in processing scans but hopefully that is because it is doing an absolutely thorough job and protecting our systems from threats and vulnerabilities.

Good protection against threats

Malware and virus are reduced on our Corporate network to minimum events, may I can see we are protected as expected.

Pros

Nice web interface console. Policy and rules changes applies intermediately. Excellent heuristic scan on real time. Virus signature keep constantly updated.

Cons

Firewall capabilities works but are simple to define specific rules for programs. Update process of client version on each machine would be better if not require uninstall of previous, it would be more simple.
