"Powerful tool for removing cyber threats."

What do you like best?

Norton is well known anti-virus tool of market and has full capability to delete threats from our systems. It always runs in background of our system and gives us security all the time. Fire all features is great and keeps our Emails and online documents secure from virus. While surfing on internet many infected files and junky links try to infect our system but Norton block them instantly, it provides us clean environment for work and secure content for download.

What do you dislike?

As Norton always runs in background of our system so it requires much memory to install and it make my PC slower for work. Deep scan takes much time to complete and it’s a tricky process for me because it takes up to an hour for complete. Some of its features are relatively complex for me while I use this tool for first time. As my personal experience Norton antivirus is bit expensive rather than other antivirus tools of market.

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

Norton is great tool and it has all the basic features which provides us complete against powerful threats. It speeds of virus detection is very fast and has ability to remove virus from our system. Custom and deep scan are one of the best feature of this tool and the capability to point out threats from roots of device. Mobile version is also available which keeps our smart devices secure from malware and viruses.

"My experience was amazing. Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile can be considered as Best Friend."

What do you like best?

I like how it smoothly helps predict, detect and prevent physical, malware, network and vulnerability exploits to protect businesses from mobile cyberattacks. That's wonderful.

I like that it is easy to deploy, adopt, maintain and update and has zero impact on productivity,

experience and privacy. In addition, as promoised by them it has real-time protection from

suspicious apps and networks!

What do you dislike?

To be honest, I don't like how much battery it consumes to use Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile. Also, notifications that it sends are quite a lot which is disturbing.The battery consumption for the APP is relatively small, but since the location services are 'ON' all the time, users might see some degradation in battery performance!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get a Buy-in from your business as all of your Mobile users will be affected. It offers vast protection with little annoyance and interaction. I feel the protection could be a tad better, obviously one of the best on the market but there's always a room for improvement.

Symantec Endpoint protection allows business to be conducted mobile without risking exposure, it also allows the company to make sure employees are conducting safe business. So that's a plus.

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

I find it useful in all aspects of business especially trying to protect scam attacks. It has seamless deployment and users don't even realize that this product is protecting their device and Critical Apps which is nice. Also there is automated corporate asset protection when under attack and it is really nice since it contributes to SEP Mobile’s Crowdsourced Threat Intelligence database!!

"Symantec, a help desk users best friend. "

What do you like best?

I really enjoyed the ease of access when using Symantec. I had been a help desk support employee at a college for about four years and we used this program to install on students phones and computers to protect their devices. It was easy to understand that we often had the students do it themselves. Very user friendly

What do you dislike?

Symantec had little for me to dislike about it personally. However I could see how it would be annoying when the scan would take forever. That could be because we were using a bit of an older version. It might be different now.

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

Business wise we helped people clean and protect their laptops, phones and tablets. We used it as an easy to provide protection for the students. It was also on our equipment to protect and run scans.

"It’s good anti-virus which used by our organization to protect against viruses and network threats. "

What do you like best?

Symantec Endpoint Protection gave us the live updates, log history and run time scanning. It also works for virtual servers.

It has multiple features like anti-malware, firewall and intrusion prevention which prevents data loss.

What do you dislike?

Symantec Endpoint is very good in the use of system resources, however, there is a noticeable lag of approx 1-2 minutes for the system to shut down.

When scanning takes place it slows down the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My opinion to use Symantec Endpoint Protection because it provides live updates and run time scanning of viruses.

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

One of my favorites and I always say that I feel great knowing that it still keeps me protected from viruses and threats. Simple network setup and easily deploy across the network.

"Symantec does a thorough job of protecting my computer from potential threats"

What do you like best?

I like that you can scheduled the scans to occur at times when you will likely not be using your computer. They can also run in the background while your computer is in use.

What do you dislike?

The logs for threats found do not make a ton of sense to me to be considered useful but it is likely that the Information Technology department at the organization in which I work has a better understanding.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Talk with your information technology department or specialists to help in determining which software program is best for you.

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

To my knowledge, the main problem being solved is preventing our organization as a whole from being virtually attacked by an outside entity. Since this software has been installed on my PC, I have had no cyber related issues.

"Great Defensive software"

What do you like best?

This is a great software which runs in the background and helps me remain protected. Symantec is a well-trusted name and is used by many companies for enterprise security.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, though a limited number, Symantec can become too demanding on the resources and too defensive. I haven't been able to access certain sites which I know are safe. But i guess these sites can still have malicious embeddings so Symantec blocks them

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

To remain protected from various targeted and indirect attacks. Our systems hold immensely valuable data which absolutely can't be compromised
