A software to defend against malware attacks.

Symantec Endpoint Encryption security makes sure about the endpoints on an organization, regularly characterized as end-client gadgets. Overall an excellent antivirus and Malware location and kill software utilized in the greater part of the significant level corporate organizations.

Pros

Symantec Endpoint Encryption is a genuine investment item. Since you can utilize the item effectively even in old windows working frameworks. On certain gatherings like it utilizes a great deal of CPU and RAM assets. If the PC you are utilizing is old, it is practically difficult to work with this PC even with applications that utilization some RAM assets. So in outline, but since Symantec Endpoint Protect is such a light software this is not the case for it. Symantec has worked superbly with its brought together administration entrance. The specialist/customer itself is anything but difficult to convey once you comprehend Symantec's interface. Strategy the board could utilize some work, however, given the class of programming, it covers the fundamentals, to say the least. Email notices are an absolute necessity for me and this product does it well. It doesn't make a difference if the function was settled naturally or not, administrators consistently get notices.

Cons

Tech support help can be a touch of disappointing now and again particularly if the current issue isn't legitimately identified with the operator. Entry related issues can set aside a little effort to fathom and all the more so since Broadcom took them over. The license structure and cost is high. The way that there is a great deal of distinction between contenders makes you think while picking the item. Ben Symantec firm necessities to show its valuing strategy. The recurrence and regular upgrade are not as regular and consistent.

Love SEP

This software works extremely well for us. It is easy to setup the SEP Manager, and it is easy to roll out the software to our endpoints. After we managed to configure the SEPM the way we needed it, it's pretty much trouble free after that. Users do not know it is even on their systems until they receive a detection notification. The software never seems to bog down our systems. It is easy to update (definitions and software itself when required). It performs better than others we've tried in the past.

Pros

Software is perfect for our environment because it is light weight, and is pretty much invisible to the users.

Cons

Managing it effectively requires the SEP Manager component, and that leaves a lot to be desired. It is slow, clunky, and awkward to navigate.

Reasons for Choosing Symantec Endpoint Encryption

Pricing was just right for us as a non-profit. I would definitely recommend this to anyone in the non-profit sector.

Reasons for Switching to Symantec Endpoint Encryption

McAfee wasn't catching malware like it should have. Ran tests with SEP, and SEP caught what McAfee did not.

Symantec

Pros

I am using symantec for a long time and I don't have any problem on my computer in view of virus attack, malwares, etc.

Cons

It makes your computer very very slow, especially at starts. I really would like to close it everytime but I can't do it as I don't have admin rights

Reliable solution for your protection - good choice for business needs

As a summary, I really like having 2 different scan options (Active scan & Full scan). For me this software is really user friendly due to simple interface and limited number of pop-up alerts. It does the job at top level if you have a SSD (but also perms OK with regular HDD's). I think it is one of the bests for business protection needs.

Pros

I like using Symantec Endpoint. First of all, the interface is very lean. Anti virus, anti-thread and anti-spyware protection features are working properly. Alerts you when a threat available - I mean alerts you if it's really a thread (not like some free programs which alert you for almost everything, including pop up etc.) There are two different type of search option available: 1) Active scan (1-2 minutes; very good and fast) 2) Full scan (30-120 minutes; very detailed). On the other hand you can manage different settings like; client management, exceptions or network). I have a SSD on my business laptop; so never faced any issue; but it was also working fine with a regular HDD previous laptop.

Cons

There are two things to mention. First of all, Symantec (so as some other protection software) may cause old devices to slow down when you start up. This generally happens with regular HDD's. However not an issue, if you have SSD. Another issue ir full scan can take around 2 hour time; which is the max. range as written on the Symantec screen - of course this depends how much you have used your hard drive capacity.

Business level protection from threads with high performance

In overall, Symantec Endpoint Protection performs wery well. It is a high end business level protection solution. There are many players in the area of Virus, internet and threat protection in the market. However; I think Symantec has good advantages and a logical choice for your office life

Pros

First thing to mention about Symantec Endpoint Encryption is the high protection performance for all kinds of treats . Secondly, it is easy to use and has a simple interface (although it is a bit old fashioned). For the features; there are 2 basic scan option (Active scan and full scan). Especially active scan takes only a couple of minutes and gives you flexibility. The settings can be configured; but also can be restricted by the IT admins. You can view all the scan logs from spyware, threats and virus and also quarantine records as well. Status of network and hardware protection also shown on main screen. These are quite adequate for end users.

Cons

There are only a few issues to mention about Symantec Endpoint Encryption. It does cause old techs (or computes with regular HDD) to slow down especially during start up. If you're lucky to have a SSD or high RAM/CPU, then this is not an issue. Another issue may be considerably long set up time; but not a big deal.
