However the worst issue is that there were multiple times when it would cause a complete lock up of my device due to update issues or conflicts with other software which were NOT infected.

Constant irritating popups; this is basically a virus in and of itself by how annoying it is. It is not necessary for safe browsing if you aren't doing anything unusual.

Anti-Virus Software That Does Its Job!

Reviewed 5 years ago

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...

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.

Symantec Endpoint is a good solution for end-users

Reviewed 2 years ago

Symantec Endpoint was a definite upgrade from McAfee and AVG, both of which did not provide adequate protection for our computers and mobile devices.

Pros

Symantec is a good overall program and provides adequate protection. The web browser plug-ins prevent pop-ups, providing an additional layer of protection that most programs don't.

Cons

The program did slow down the performance of several of our computers when performing a definition update, a quick system scan or a full system scan.

It allows us to protect all our endpoint devices.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Symantec is deployed throughout our company, it allows us to protect all our endpoint devices by preventing infections from Trojans, ramsonware and malware, it is very effective and allows us to maintain strict control of how the devices are used through a control panel and a security administrator who decides which devices can enter the network that devices do not, this includes USB sticks and any other type of external device.

Pros

It seems to me that it is a very effective software in what our company needs, we have to take care of data and infrastructure that is expensive, it helps to keep all the systems clean and have a control of compliance with computer security policies, it is easy to use and allows to schedule scans so as not to interfere with regular work.

Cons

I have no complaints, we have used this antivirus for years and are very satisfied with its performance.
