Endpoint Protection - The Symantec way

2016-10-20

It provides multiple levels of security to an organization's network.

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.

A great protection with security control

2017-10-11

Recommended Antivirus and Firewall solution.

Pros

-Easy to build rules and control users and machines.

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.

Great simple product to use

2015-06-30

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).

Symantec Secure Software

2018-05-05

The benefit i get from using Symantec is the peace of mind knowing my personal data is secure at all times, customer support is always ready to help whenever needed; Moreover, Symantec even scans any application that i download from the web, and makes it sure that is it safe before executing the install, that is a huge plus for me.

Pros

I use it daily on my PC and as well as at my workplace. The security updates download automatically and daily in the background without bugging the user, I can scan a particular file or directory, i can schedule a scan anytime of my preference, also if a new updates has been installed and if it requires me to reboot my pc, i can choose a later time to perform that task Symantec is great in terms of security, i have a peace of mind when i use Symantec knowing i am safe when browsing the web.

Cons

One of the downside of using Symantec is that it takes up a lot of system memory since the applications is always running in background.

Great product for Windows Server based networks

2018-04-30

It also allows me to have a one stop shop, so to speak, to view all activities pertaining to my machines and network being in tip top performing shape!

Pros

Able to build both x32 and x64 install packages and push directly from the management console.

Cons

The administrator must have extensive knowledge of their network and the different locations. End-users can cause the system to send A LOT of alerts to the admin due to canceling startup scans or trying to disable the software.

Great software but kind of a drain on system resources

2018-04-16

Pros

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

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.

Review on Symantec

2015-02-16

Pros

You can control your security by giving only certain users the ability to use removable devices.

This would have to be the high memory used by the program. You need at least 4 gigs of ram to properly run it.
