What do you like best?

This product fit the best, out of all the vendors we reviewed, with our current security operations.

We wanted to gain visibility into what was happening on our network and we did achieve that but the follow-up functionality in the investigation, containment, and remediation areas was more robust than we expected. Very happy with this purchase. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I dislike about this product and it is pretty good. It has many features which plays an important thing to consider while selecting tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Easy deployment & management,. Integration with endpoint or other device ,Rich report and cost.

This product will add real value to the business and security to the organisation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The value to this solution, to us, was the way it fit our strategy, current vendor relationship and sec ops - being a current SEP customer made this very compelling. That said, this product works with other anti-malware product vendors, so don't let that dissuade you from looking at the cloud and physical/virtual appliance options.

What do you like best?

I have used norton antivirus sofware by symantec and was quite happy with the antivirus, it kept my laptop safe from malware and viruses from the internet as well as external devices. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It was expensive compared to some other antivirus in the market, but it also works better so its a trade-off. If your devices are more susceptible to viruses go for it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

In our company we use it for all the employees. Our IT department has full control over adjustments of all the installations. Employees don't need to worry about scheduled scannings, updatings, fine tunning or anything else. Its pre installed on all the machines and is there to protect, not to disturb. Its awesome!

What do you like best?

The best part about the program was how it made sure sites were secure as you used it and actively worked to keep viruses and malware at bay. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As nice as it was in fighting malware it frequently misidentified websites and even if you whitelisted them it still caused issues. It also caused issues with some applications on my computer where it would cause them to stop working properly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure to test your programs with it to amke sure they are compatible. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The benefits have been related to protections of the data on my computer. The computers we use have sensitive information and keeping that safe is a huge benefit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This system works better than other antivirus systems we've used in the past. I like how I am able to have real time protection and filter out what we are able to use and not use. This is an important feature in our sector as our employees freely use computers and we need to make sure they don't download anything that can reveal our trade secrets! I also like that it runs in the background with minimal resources allowing us to utilize the resources on on computer without worrying of the anti virus slowing down our projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that it does filter our some of our software and completely delete them before we are able to recover and take it out of our virus filter. I like that it has that feature but hate that it make you work around a process that can delete vital file. Beware!

I also greatly dislike that if i turn off the antivirus, it will turn itself back on within 30 mins or the next restart. It gets annoy as it may turn off the program you are using or delete the entire project. There is a work around, but you have to google how to do the process! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would use it to ensure you and your team are safe! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I am able to control the content of our employees without having to watch over their shoulders. It also logs the things they may have access allowing us to know who is doing what wrong! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
