Symantec Endpoint Protection Software


 

Symantec Endpoint Protection defends businesses from both malware and targeted attacks—protecting against new and unknown threats.

Symantec Endpoint Protection uses Symantec’s Insight platform to collect and collate data from over 200 million systems in 200-plus countries. It uses this data to identify and create a security rating for every file accessed through the Internet. As a result, it stops targeted attacks and advanced, persistent threats with a degree of protection that far exceeds the capacities of traditional anti-virus.

Deployed as an on-premise solution, Symantec Endpoint Protection offers unified management across physical and virtual platforms, with granular policy control for enhanced flexibility and scalability.

Symantec Endpoint Protection is designed for maximum efficiency, enabling hardware to run faster and last longer for performance, and runs on several operating systems, including Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. The complete suite is a good fit for medium-sized businesses seeking a more comprehensive range of protection.

Pros

Most virus programs are in-your-face with warnings and anything else they can find to occupy screen space. Thankfully that's not the case. You can scan when you want and what you want, and I'm assuming it's always keeping things in check in the background.

Cons

As a user and not an administrator, I find it feels lackluster in its capabilities. It's hard to tell if it feels like it's working sometimes.

-Firewall that can as web filtering software with customized rules for ports, links and domains.
-Managing Workstation resources and ports is so great feature.
-Automatic reporting at your hand whenever you need.

Cons

Annual fees is somehow expensive when you have large number of workstations to be managed.
sometimes you need to push the group policy (Rules) manually to managed workstation if you updated it and don't need to wait until automatic update but it is not a big deal.

This is the most comprehensive centrally managed endpoint security solution for businesses. It includes a host-based intrusion protection system (HIPS), device control, anti-malware, a network IPS, and a software firewall. Client policy is almost infinitely tweakable from a central console—practical for large enterprises but a bit of overkill for the average small business.

Great Protection for Enterprise

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

We have been using SEP for several years now and it has provided excellent protection. The updates are timely and have not had any serious infections. We could not be happier with the product.

Pros

The LiveUpdates are timely and do their job. The patches can be pushed enterprise-wide with ease. The biggest pro is that it works. For an Enterprise protection software, that is the key selling point.

Cons

We have had an occasional hiccup where the end users need to manually update their virus definitions and there are no notifications that it needs to be done. This can cause users laptops to be blocked from our VPN until they manually push the update. It is not a problem really, just an inconvenience.

Advice to Others

I would highly recommend this product to any companies looking for enterprise protection.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

It provides multiple levels of security to an organization's network. Installation is smooth and doesn't take a lot of time. It's management is convenient using a central console.

Pros

It provides complete flexibility to the administrator. He can chose to install updates and patches directly at the endpoints or can push to each endpoint using the server. It is very effective in detecting malware owing to it's Insight platform.

Cons

Customer care does not respond in time and at times the antivirus consumes a lot of CPU resources causing workstations to become unresponsive.

Advice to Others

I would recommend it to all organizations for securing their business networks without spending a lot. Currently, it can be only be deployed as on-premise solution, so it is not suitable for organizations looking for a on-demand solution.

Regarding antivirus solutions, Symantec has nothing to prove yet but the company is still doing a very good job in that industry. The virus definitions are always up to date and are for sure one of the best three on the market.
With Symantec EndPoint Protection, your business is under huge security regarding malwares and virus.
The Management Console offers a lot of good tools such as monitoring, reports, client management.

Likes Least

A con would be some of the tools in Management Console are not very simple to use and that console is not the quickest one I've seen.

Recommendations

In order to keep your business secure from trojan, malwares and other kind of virus, this business antivirus solution must be use.

Support has always been terrible and its not getting better. They use India operators for their support. They cannot speak english clearly and are almost impossible to understand or communicate with. Refused to connect me to a us-based english speaking oeprator. They repeatedly ask for your information after they have taken it and given you a case number. DO NOT USE if you can avoid it.

Test their support phone number. I pay for support as part of my license, and it is a total waste of money. I will never buy this for a client again.

Very simple interface but still gives the ability to do set basic exclusions. Takes all the hassle of management out of SEP and gives an easy way to get reports and notifications on what is happening on your network

Likes Least

At times the product can be too simple. It expects you to want to use the normal basic profiles without any modifications.

Recommendations

The management console is quite different then the normal SEP product. This is both a good thing and a thing to take some time to explore. I did find it easier to learn and setup. Plus it removes the hassle of setting up a management server (but gives you the option to setup a local update server).

Likes Best

The workstation deployment is very straight forward and updates can be easily pushed out. The antivirus protection is dependable and the firewall is flexible yet extensive enough to offer a solid protective layer.

Likes Least

The technical support documentation and support can be less than straight forward. If you encounter an error getting through support to get the correct answer may take some time.

Recommendations

This is great software for small and mid sized companies but this does require an administrator with a solid understanding of your network and your business rules. It can be processor intensive when scanning so be sure to schedule scans for off peak periods.

It causes the computers to sometimes get slow and unresponsive to user input. You sometimes have to turn on the computers for a few minutes before you can use them.

If you have a large number of systems and it's hard to monitor users activities, then this is the software for you to get. It allows you to limit users activities based on your preferences.

Pros

Symantec usually doesn't ask questions of users and is great with blocking threats while updating behind the scenes. There are no annoying adds for upgrading software attached to it either. If you want to buy a antivirus and forget about it, Symantec might be the best solution for you. From a network security standpoint - having an administration based protection package is good if you need detailed reports and company wide alerts.

Cons

It costs money. While you might enjoy the lack of adds, and update/registration reminders, it still costs money to buy it. There are quite a few free services that are out there which provide great protection (that is if you don't mind the adds and reminders). Also, from a network administration point, I've noticed the database crashing every few weeks, so it's not terribly unstable - but there are some issues to be aware of.

Antivirus / Malware protection, and endpoint firewall protection.

Pros

For an Anti-Virus / Firewall software, it is pretty quiet, meaning that it doesn't pop up all of the time with warnings and alerts, like other programs do. We are using the cloud version of the product, and it seems to work very well, we have email notifications setup, and we will get an email if it blocks something, or someone tries to run a program that it thinks is sketchy, or tries to access a website with some known issues, but otherwise, you install it, and it does its job. I do like the ability that I can sort of customize the install package for mass deployment (we use it with SCCM and its flawless), it will allow me to pick the group of computers that I want the laptop or desktop to belong to and I push that package during our SCCM task sequence, and after that I don't have to login to the symantec portal to move it, or manage it since my policies are already established.

Cons

I think the online interface is a bit cumbersome. I think that from the firewall perspective it seems a bit difficult to make it do what you want it to do, and unfortunately, their support is not incredibly helpful in this regard, at least in my previous experience. My biggest complaint is that if I reimage a computer, and re-use the same name, it makes a duplicate entry / assigns another license until I go out to the symantec portal and delete the previous record.

The possibility for building distributed infrastructure makes it easy to secure clients in a globally dispersed environment. The scanning on the clients is well optimized and it is hardly noticeable from performance aspect. Fast response to 0-day attacks by Symantec.

The size of the updates can be a bit of a downside. This goes especially when new clients are introduced in an environment with slower bandwidth. The configuration interface can use an interface update.

We use SEP at my company as our AV solution. It's fairly easy to manage. We have different SEP Managers for reach Active Directory Domain, so it can be a bit confusing at times and there isn't a single portal to manage everything.

Overall, managing AV on your desktops/servers is pretty simple with SEP. The ability to have it receive it's definitions from the SEP Manager as well as from Symantec directly in the event the SEPM is unavailable is great.

The Symhelp tool is great for analyzing a possible infection in your system to then send to support to analyze.

Pros

Catches a lot of infections. Easy to mange.
