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.

Illusion software. Inefficient, with no refund. Avoid at any cases!

Pros

Support is very good , specially to inform you who have operated the intrusion. Halas , files where stolen from the server. Too late symantec !!!

Cons

My server was protected with EndPoint Protection(EPP). And guess what? All my files haves been stolen. EPP is a total fake software that does not protect your files from external intrusions. Forget this software !

Good quality software; definitely the lesser of many evils out there.

Pros

First and foremost, they are an American company, always a plus. Surprisingly for antivirus software that is hard to find. From the companies I've worked at that have used various protection software's, Symantec was one of the few with not too many issues. I often saw with Kasperksy that it would lock out certain things for the IT department and it was a hassle to fix. Symantec also does not seem to destroy your processor speed like many others. The company systems I am on now just got changed over to McAfee and half your day is spent waiting on the anti-virus to allow your various programs to run.

Cons

Older versions were difficult to manage and the GUI's were not as friendly. This has changed significantly though, for the better. Management for full systems is still on the slow side, hopefully changes will come for this as well.

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.

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.

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.

Great antivirus protection and a brand that I can trust. When it doubt this is always first on my list.

Pros

One of my favorites and I always say that I feel great knowing that it still keeps me protected. Simple network setup and easily deploy across the network.

Cons

A few years, I had to get away from this product because it was a mess, but they got back on board and corrected the problems and still is one of my favorite protection software.
They need to catch up with malware protection. I prefer that they leave the setup to easily be customized for technician's who don't want to install the firewall or data protection on their networks. This has always been a problematic software for many technicians.

Great product. Easy to implement, use and manage. Easy to scale down or up depending on how many devices you have.

Pros

My organization has been using Symantec Endpoint Protection for over 5 years. This software is easy to use and distribute. The centralized admin interface makes it easy to add new devices and see an overall security overview of my organization's assets. The custom policies allow for me to make modifications on specific machines and not effect all the others. I do this to allow exceptions on several of our machines that need it in order to perform their function.

Cons

It isn't easy to temporarily disable for troubleshooting purposes. I need to temporarily disable Symantec so I could download a piece of software it was conflicting with. Had to look up how to do this and it was a multi step process. On the bright side the documentation of how to do it was easy to find and go through.

I am able to keep both my personal files and business files safe by running scans through this software. The detailed reports are fascinating to read through and give me peace of mind.

Pros

I like that this software offers different tools I can use to keep my computer protected. I also like I am advised when there are updates on the software to make. The virus reports are easy to read and always give me peace of mind that my computer is safe. It is very interesting to read the detailed report this software provides after you perform a scan to find out what exactly is going on with your computer's safety.

Cons

The cost is high, however what price can you put on protecting your computer. Both at home and work, everything I need is on my computer, so without a program to protect it, life would be pretty nerve-wrecking.

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.

Computers virus free, hacker free, no malware. The user has peace of mind everything is safe and secure.

Pros

Easy to understand how to install, setup, and use. No special training or skills needed. Protects our Macs and PCs from viruses, malware, and keeps the hackers out. I like the interface the most. Even the technically challenged can understand how to use it without the need to do a lot of reading.

Cons

Greatly shortens battery life of laptops. Makes laptops run really hot. Slows the computer down. Makes older computer almost so slow they are unusable.
