What do you like best?

When you implement Symantec DLP you can escalate from endpoint information security to an enterprise environment. You have detection server that add a strongest security and analysis of the information and the solution is always looking for the last technologies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think the weakest link on Symantec DLP es the mobile security, the need to improve the mobile integration with iOS and Android, maybe incorporating a sandbox like security. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Most of all information security and information classification. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It’s fast and it comes in one pack of services. It would be good for an average user. Nothing complicated. It has an affordable price.Easy to use. There’s improved MDM features. It is trusted and established name. User interface is easy and simple. There is also 60-day free trial available which is great. It is safe and I think that is the most important part of this security program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It’s perfect for small and mid-size companies and I think it does a great job. I think it lacks better protection for anti-phishing. I’ve hear that there are some vulnerable side of this security program, but I personally have not encountered them and can’t say much about it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are a small size company that would be a good company. It has everything for that. It keeps everything in one spot which is great. Probably if you need more protection features s you should look for something else. It has great MDM features. Also it supports both Windows and Mac OS. It is trusted and established name. User interface is easy and simple. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The management console is very easy to learn. Being able to configure agents and groups without interacting the the workstation is very convenient. It is not difficult to investigate alerts due to the high amount of information that is included along with them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The technical support could use a little bit of improvement. It is difficult to resolve conflicts with other monitoring software it the technical support team for Symantec DLP is on a completely different time zone. There seem to be a few limitations when is comes to tuning the alerts, specifically for social security numbers and other personally identifiable information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Automated Data Classification makes it a little easier to identify what's what and saves time without having to go through each bit of data for accuracy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Support can be a nightmare when you call in to get assistance trying to either find the account your referencing or the technical expertise is not enough at that specific level that you have to escalate the call to the next line of support which causes it to take longer to resolve the issue and get it back up and running like it was supposed to be running to start with Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I don't have any recommendations at this time for this product as we are no longer using it. We evaluated it to see how it would fit with our companies needs. Although we were impressed with the options we chose another product which better fit our needs and was more cost effective. I'm not sure what else to put here as it is requiring more text which I don't have. I would say for those evaluating the product make sure it will do what your company requires and you have the correct parties involved in making the decision to move to the product. SDLP offers a lot and is very effective at what it is designed to do but there are several products on the market which also provide similar services. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It is a great tool in the business to avoid data loss. Really personalizable. really personalizable. Mostly, we use PCI Credit Card data to define it.

You can even directly check the cases on the platform, take action and submit reports. I have used other instruments, and it's by far the best I've ever played.

I find Symantec Data Loss Prevention Cloud to be extremely beneficial in regards to securing my data. They are great at notifying me on a regular basis should an issue come up!

The only downside is that there are constant notifications. This program is very informative, but when busy- can be difficult to read up on what the error is. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The benefits of knowing my data in the cloud is secure is huge.

What do you like best?

I love this application is a tool that provides easy protection for all types of files and configurations, thanks to its protection services for access to specific web sites, protection for all types of personal or corporate emails, in short, this is a complete solution for the protection of all types of access and access to personal information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This tool works well, but it must be complemented with other protection applications, I do not like it very much, its little compatibility with applications that are not of the same brand of them, it seems that they want to force you to buy more products from them, so that the application provides its greatest potential, that is not good at all, in our company, we use different protection systems, and this tool is difficult to complement with many of them, we have had to look at different ways to complement this tool, with those we use to other protection services, we do not move to all the products sold by Symantec, simply because we do not like them, so every application they sell, should be versatile and adapt to all kinds of applications. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This system is recommended, for protection of all types of access, to different websites, servers, access to external files, passwords and other access configurations in the cloud. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to this application, we have protected a part of our database, and access to different services of our company, as well as the protection of access to external files through servers, has also conferred an endpoint protection, through this application, previously we could have some leakage of important information, in some sectors of our company, due to the easy access to them, no all those leaks have been closed, we are also devising new forms of protection for the future, that we see, with this tool we can apply.

My company uses Symantec for storage and protection purposes. We deal with a lot of sensitive information and this program works really well for our office. We also deal with large quantities of files and programs on our system, and this program ensures all of those files are protected. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think the downside of this program is how dependent all of our files are on this system. While all of our files are confidential and also safe, if this program were to go down, management would be scrambling. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Simplistic GUI and scalability to deploy multiple modules across your environment and centralized management console with good integration capabilities. Multiple tiers of architecture methods give the flexibility to deploy multiple detection components in the heterogeneous environment and easy to configure fail over options. Best part is the policy configuration framework provided in DLP with the concepts such as policy groups which provide isolation capabilities for policy application. Reusable sender/recipient patterns makes life easy for administrators when there is frequent change in exceptions. In terms of incident management, there are plenty of smart and automatic response rules can be configured and integrated with your ticketing systems. Policy constructs such as data identifiers and profiles cater to both structured and unstructured data. Multiple detection servers cater to active as well as passive monitoring of the user activities. Overall a great product to have in your environment in current age of compliance regulations and legal liabilities. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Lack of compliance reporting which can be configured out of the box. Also dashboards can be quite rigid. One needs integration with data insight for more detailed incident analysis which comes with additional license and hardware requirements. Also, Database Exact data profiles limitations for dynamic databases. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Highly recommended for data loss prevention and protection requirements overall. Ranked highly in industry and quite capable to deliver your requirements.

I have been using this from last 3 years, I would say no other product can beat this. What I really like about this is Easy to deploy, user-friendly console, good reporting etc, I am very familiar with Installation/Deploy, creating policies, agent deployment. provides more details regarding db health, agent status, and grouping for DLP policies. it is one of our primary security solutions. It has been widely adapted in the enterprise. Good this is that users don't even know it's there unless something is flagged

I would suggest evaluating this at least once. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would say reporting part is the little bit tricky, you need to get IT Analytics installed to get the reports, It could be better if reports can be accessed from console directly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

DLP is powerful, flexible and extensible. Whatever your issue, you can probably use DLP in a creative way to protect your data. Obviously there is the bread and butter such as discover scanning, but I particularly like Flex Responses. Flex Responses add a lot of extensibility to the DLP platform, suddenly you can write your own plugins that can be triggered by DLP to automate many processes. Personally I have worked on flex responses that integrate symantec products that have no native integration (such as ICT). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The platform is somewhat inconsistent in terms of how it has been built and what you can use where. Take for instance Flex Responses; Agent flex responses are written in python and Server flex responses are written in Java. I would like to see more standardisation for the DLP platform in terms of development standards.

Also the UI is fairly outdated and in some places unusable, anyone who's used the browser to go back feels my pain... if you know, you KNOW! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Talk to a product SE for DLP such as Jake Wardell, these guys are incredibly knowledgeable about DLP and all of the potential use cases it has. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At work we are constantly using DLP to solve a number of problems such as scanning massive stores of data, preventing emails containing confidential information from being released and more. I personally sit more towards the development side and have worked with DLP creating flex responses and product integrations. As I mentioned before, I have worked on product integration flex responses. The benefits of DLP are that the platform can be extended and development upon without waiting for symantec. Cyber security is a complex market and symantec can't always solve your business solutions out of the box (due to their highly bespoke nature). DLP is aware of this and gives you the keys to the castle, so you can protect your data how you need. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The UI makes navigating incidents, developing policies, administration work, and updates all very easy. The ability to create simple to extremely complex rules is great to have.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a Linux client available. This has been the only issue I have ran into but there are work around depending on the reason for the need of DLP on Linux. I wanted to scan Apache logs, so instead I export the logs to a smb share for scanning. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Having a good understanding what your company considers sensitive is important. Not all company's need to follow PCI, HIPAA, PII, etc... Some companies sensitive data might be a recipe or design doc. Meeting with key individuals/groups to have this discussion prior to implemented a DLP tool will help get your DLP program up and running faster. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love Symantec Data Loss Prevention Cloud, it has a way of extending security to both the physical components and everything installed in the cloud. It really allows a detection of data loss points that affect the performance of the applications and in some cases compromise information or data.

Its encryption seems to me excellent we have done distant tests and simulations being successful until the moment the form with its AI solves the situation.

And of all that I like most is to identify the most risky users and thus be able to approach the situation of a totally preventive approach. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The aspects that can be improved are in my opinion to propose and improve the protocol for DLP. Make the initial approach to the solution a little easier since it was initially confusing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are many services that we have used in the cloud that offer their own security systems, the experience has shown us the vulnerability of them. Reason that leads us to fully trust the capabilities and proposed data loss solutions of Symantec, the experience with them is so far absolutely successful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are many aspects as a growing organization to solve in order to have a technological platform adapted to the times and that at the same time protects our information and that of our clients, a great part of that protection aspects that we need and that we must also offer to our clients. We are provided by the Symantec team, being in this case Symantec Data Loss Prevention Cloud and Symantec CloudSOC a the tools that solve this situation and that we use as a guarantee to our customers.

In summary, it solves the data security aspects both in physical installation and in the cloud, efficiently, pleasantly and at a fair price. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

DLP policy template are flexible to use with wide range of option to add key words, content. With GDPR compliance in row it easier to implement the policy.

Symantec DLP is well matured product compared to other vendors.

With integration of solution with counter part Symantec solution has made it ease of management. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Fine tuning of policy is quite time consuming, however once policy are ready it works well. Fetching attribute from LDAP also does not work. User level its difficult to understand the policy. Special session need to be taken to understand the complete DLP solution. Support is way to slow. For instance, if I create case, I get call from support after two or three days. If Symantec can come up with single console for all solution will be very helpful & easy to manage wide range of solution in single console. Database support needs to be extended for SQL. Customer prefer SQL over oracle database. Even management of database is easier compared to oracle. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Reporting part of DLP solution is well versed, gives better visibility of data moving & residing in the organisation Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
