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

The software is great at stopping anything bad into your computer systems. We always felt secure with their software...probably the most secure we have every felt. If security is your top priority, we would highly recommend Symantec.

Cons

Our systems ran slower with Symantec that with other software. To make matters worse, we have a touchy software that accesses a database that seems to really act up when there is a drain on system resources. Sadly, with more of a drain on resources than other software, it also caused more problems with our other software functioning properly.

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.

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.

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.

Symantec Endpoint Protection is one of the most robust antivirus and anti-malware applications on the market. The centralised management make it so easy to to manage thousands of computers from a single console. This is one of the most feature rich antivirus solution I used. The process used to deploy installation to client computers is simple and straight forward. Another feature that will appease administrators is the ability to apply configurations on a mass scale.

Cons

The only con I have is the automatic scanning process uses a lot of resource on the end users computer, which sometimes cause slowness.

It protects us against malware and our own people who browse internet and open email attachments blindly, like if nothing could ever happen :(

Pros

Symantec is one of the most known counter malware companies and we decided to give it a try. I don't know if it's a placebo effect, but somehow we feel more secure. Once in a while virus detection or an intrussion attack prevention notification arrives through email and that makes us feel that way.
It is easy to manage and policies can be created just in a few clicks.

Cons

Users with non admin privileges can confirm the execution of blocked apps. Oh Lord! That should not be able happen.

Endpoint security securing the endpoints on a network, often defined as end-user devices such as mobile devices, laptops, and desktop PCs, although hardware such as servers in a data center are also considered endpoints and verifies every packet that comes in as well as that goes out.

Pros

Symantec, is a security software suite, which consists of anti-malware, intrusion prevention and firewall features for server and desktop computers and have been using Symantec Endpoint Protection past 15 years in our organization on all Desktops, Laptops, and Servers and all the departments of the organization.we use Microsoft Windows exclusively, so this pertains to Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2 for server operating systems. We have it deployed on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10 for endpoints.

Basically protecting the corporate network when accessed via remote devices such as laptops or other wireless and mobile devices. Each device with a remote connecting to the network creates a potential entry point for security threats.

The best tool to monitoring N/W security status, activities, software, authorization and authentication.
Symantec is more than antivirus,Effective and accurate antispam protection,Fast protection at the Web gateway,Fast and easy protection,Safeguard intellectual property and finally it's Ensure compliance.

Cons

Having to reboot each client after a version upgrade can be troublesome.
LiveUpdate client sometimes breaks and requires a fix to repair the client. This is needed to ensure the client receives timely updates and definitions.

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.

Pros

The cloud-based management console is great! It makes updates and new installations so easy. I have recommended Symantec EP to many people.

Cons

The licensing is a bit tricky. I found it difficult to get my many different purchase bundles to sync up and bill on the same day every year.

This software is great for defending against viruses and Trojans and other online threats. It works well and gives yo peace of mind.

Pros

I have been using this software for many years and have never had a virus or Trojan. This software has kept my PC safe over the years and has proved to be reliable.

Cons

I would like the live update to make a pop up with the statement that the definitions are current if they are out of date. I like the fact that everything works behind the scenes but I would rather know that everything has been updated.
