"Reliable security in endpoints"

What do you like best?

When we started to grow as a business of technology as an ally we also found that the same technology opens many doors to computer security hazards that generate problems and in many cases real loss of investment. Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud is one of our favorite tools to provide security at each endpoint, it is reliable, easy to use, it focuses on a real defense of equipment whether mobile, MAc, Windows, servers or simple desktops. It is undoubtedly an accessible, high quality protection at the best market price.

What do you dislike?

I am a believer that everything can be improved, without doubt there are internal aspects that can make the service improve, be faster, broader and deepen layers of security. Now that does not imply that there is a real aspect that up to now you can qualify as bad or deficient and therefore say that I do not like it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

That they observe that it is a very powerful tool by itself. It works better or gets more benefit if it is activated in conjunction with other Symantec products that collaborate for total protection. I think there are few options that exist that are as reliable as the Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud. I recommend it with certainty of its performance.

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

That really solves Symantec Endpoint Protection many things for example:

It allows using a single endpoint protection tool for different equipment such as Mac and Windows Server, without generating conflicts or incurring additional elements or particulate respectively.

Its panel facilitates and promotes being up to date with the necessary updates or policies that result in a more reliable and protected system.

Resolves a segment of the investment theme in equipment protection as it extends to the teams of each organizer of the organization.

There are many contributions and solutions offered, it is undoubtedly one of the best tools on the market.

"Computer Security First for Business."

What do you like best?

Well talk about Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud is talking about a system that really offers security for the entire network of the organization regardless of the devices that we are talking about, it can work and integrate Mac and Windows computers, as well as work in mobile devices, this thanks to its defense of several layers in the cloud, which also makes it extremely fast and can be operated with a very simple and intuitive configuration.

The monitoring and the reports that it generates on the use of equipment and devices allows to discover relevant information about the weak points in that sense of the company.

What do you dislike?

They can always improve the way they respond and learn artificial intelligence in the face of different threats and continue to reduce the number of false positives, perhaps that is the greatest challenge and aspect to improve that they face at present.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I believe that we should always consider quality, successful experience, price and observable performance, all these attributes have the highest degree of reach in Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud in collaboration with other of its products they conform the best to prevent the cyber threats and to operate in all we felt our network successfully. Additional has a special focus for small and medium organizations that makes it very accessible to them. For me it is the best option in the market without a doubt.

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

Definitely Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud, answers and resolves many situations specifically I can highlight:

The normal attacks in the network that occur constantly as they are in the ecosystem, thus protecting the integrity of systems and devices.

It identifies which equipment and users generate greater security risks from their equipment and devices, managing to resolve those situations in a preventive manner.

Provide general welfare by being permanently protected against most existing threats.

"Good, Light-Weight Product"

What do you like best?

For years, I was an ardent Symantec fan. I used their solutions just as the internet was becoming a thing. Shortly after the internet became a thing, Symantec became synonymous with bloatware. The application ran heavy and tended to bog machines down. However, in the last 5 years that's all changed. Symantec is now one of the easiest platforms to install and manage. I've had great success with Symantec products in my home and professional networks.

What do you dislike?

Symantec is a big company. When there's a problem, it's often difficult to get customer service. They rely too heavily on their FAQ and Knowledgebase to solve people's problems and have made contact with a real person very difficult. It's not often you have a problem, but when you do you'd better have a lot of patience because customer service is sub-standard.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The product is easy to deploy, but it's a good idea to follow the instructions. Don't get click-happy because you can get tripped up if you don't read the installation instructions. Once it's up and running, however, it's really easy to manage.

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

Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud has been my go-to solution for small and medium-sized businesses. Because it's easy to install and manage, even non-technical people can maintain the solution easily. That means I can handle initial implementation and leave the day-to-day up to any number of managers within the organization.

"Great Product!"

What do you like best?

The part of this product that I like best is the constant monitoring and notifications that I am receiving. With the notifications, I am able to feel confident that I can use my computer as needed without having any worries of being hacked or losing any pertinent information.

What do you dislike?

The catch to my likes is that they are also my dislikes with how often some of the notifications are popping up and the fact that they are annoying when you are consistently using the same programs or visiting the same websites that I feel are safe and should have already been scanned and approved for safe usage.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great product to keep your computer and network safe from any dangers; Endpoint Intelligence, Malware Detection , and Firewall. There are great features within this product and I highly recommend that anyone use this to stay away from hackers!

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

The business problems that we are solving with this product are just the general safety of our network and information. We have realized benefits of ease of setup and not having to do much with the program as it runs in the background and seems to be rather simple from what we can tell thus far.

"Good security feature but slows down the process"

What do you like best?

The security feature on this application is pretty good. It restricts quite a lot of malicious attempt and traffic and keeps our application safe and secure. It's UI is also plain and simple and thus extremely light which does not add to the weight of the application at the same time keeping it less confusing for the team.

What do you dislike?

The one feature which I disliked the most about this is the time overhead which it introduces. So we generally use the mobile OTP method and it's extremely slow from the process point of view because half of the time we do not get the message on time and by the time we get it it's almost expired, this may be attributed to the network bandwidth issue but the end result being the user is frustrated and unable to get into the system.

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

The major concern with everybody these days is how secure my application can be and this is one of the key business problems that is solved by Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud.

"It used to be a good option but changes in how licences are grouped makes it a rip off."

What do you like best?

It worked pretty well against web exploits and other web attacks.

What do you dislike?

Did not like the lack of control on the client. Poor email alerts lacked the needed information to validate the threat.

Symantec took our 40+ license and grouped them into one license. We normally allowed the license to expire at the 3 year mark and replaced the PC. Now it is a nightmare as you can not decrease license count and they refused to give us our money back effectively stealing from us. We stopped using them for all our clients as well so their loss I guess.

"Symantec cloud, easy breezy"

What do you like best?

This is one of the most secure, best cloud programs available! We have been so lucky to have this program, it has made downloading and installing programs used across the different platforms used that would otherwise make it chaotic and hectic trying to figure out who still needs access to what and all that.

What do you dislike?

There's not anything I don't like about this program, it is easy to use no matter the computer skills of the individuals and allows monitored downloads and backups to make for quick easy work.

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

Benefits are that we have information and programs readily available for download, when upgrades or new versions of programs are available, it is easy for the staff to get these updates on their platforms.

"Not the easiest to uninstall "

What do you like best?

I like that it makes it easier to install software on other devices and that there is a "home" screen where you can see all the latest updates to make sure everything is up to date.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that it is almost impossible to uninstall from a computer once we are no longer using that device.

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

It allows for better management of our devices.

"May be needed if you are Windows user"

What do you like best?

It protects the end users from getting spams from suspicious software and files.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it pops up when accessing the files built internally, while I am confident that there is no virus or spyware inside.

I have not used it since I switch to MacOS.

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

It would certainly help the users who do not have much knowledge of spams.
