"Protection Adjusted to the needs of all sizes."

What do you like best?

It is an excellent option for small organizations and businesses to be protected. In my case I have physical servers and in the cloud for my consulting office that is independent and small. Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition provides me with real protection against common threats such as viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, bots and all kinds of malicious attacks. It is easy to understand configure and evidenced that since I use the time and resources destined to the protection of equipment and data has been drastically reduced. In my opinion, the best there is for protection.

What do you dislike?

As a service I think it has greatly improved in particular its implementation and initial configuration which was the most complex of the previous versions.

The other thing that is also important is that its optimal functioning is achieved in cooperation with the other Symantec products and services.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I consider based on my experience that it is one of the best market options, with an excellent price versus value ratio. Easy to implement and that simply fulfills its purpose. I would have it as one of my first considerations if I am looking for a solution for cyber attacks, with multi-layer systems that really focus on the vulnerabilities of our systems.

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

n real and practical terms in my specific case Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition solves in my business:

Full-time protection for my computers, servers and other devices.

Save financial resources by concentrating the capacity of protection, advice and prevention of damages and loss of data in a single solution.

It saves time of processes since we are not frequent victims like before loss of data, damages to software.

Finally, it solves in a real way what is related to cyber protection both locally and in the cloud at affordable prices and with the best value relationship.

"I can't tell you how good this is! "

What do you like best?

You are able to control the security settings for all your employees and company devices. This has helped stop unauthorized entries (such as viruses or malware) into these devices. I can also help me go through and see what devices have a high risk of infection and I am able to talk to the person who manages that device. I can also schedule weekly virus checks and have a report sent to me so that I don't need to worry about going and manually running checks.

What do you dislike?

I wish that you would be able to go more into depth when you are running a threat analysis. I also wish that I can set a higher security setting for the computer via the online portal rather than needing to go on the device and physically making that setting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should definitely buy it. It helps a lot, we are no longer scared that we will be infected with malware and viruses. It is such a relief knowing that I don't need to run constant virus checks on all of our devices.

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

Before Symantec, multiple company devices were being infected with all sorts of malware, and Symantec has been able to stop these attacks against our devices. We now have great features including risk and virus analysis. Our risk of viruses has gone down drastically now that we are able to set parameters and controls such as a rule saying that you can not visit high-risk websites.

"The best endpoint protection "

What do you like best?

• Constant updates protect users from the latest threats.

• Zero-day protection protects from threats that are not yet known or publicized.

• Emails are scanned and protected as well as files.

• Fast scan

• Frequent updates

• Excellent antivirus engine

• Doesn't interfere with games

• Extra features

• Centralized management of devices.

• Easily deployed to new devices either via an image or remote push.

• Virus definitions are kept up to date as new threats arise

What do you dislike?

• Uses up a lot of system resources

• Deep scans take a while

• At times, the software has not been easy to remove. Mostly, it involves 2 removal tools to full remove the software from systems. It can be a stubborn to remove at times.

• The user interface can be kind of "busy", finding it difficult at times for exactly where to go and what is needed.

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

"Useful"

What do you like best?

I'm proud enough to say this product does what it needs to, and does not come with extra baggafe like other anti-cirus software does.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes ends up crashing certain programs stating they are trojan viruses and quarentines them. Also is not compatible with other anti-virus softwares such as Malware. For some reason this product not seems to work well and often causes issues, so Malware would have to be removed before installing of this product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very useful for universities, as it's very compaticable with many programs, and does its job very well.

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

Gets the job done when we need our computers to be scanned daily for viruses and allows us to have the program run in the background. Also does teh job of doing scheduled scans at set times during the day, and is very good at scanning all programs on the drive of the computer.

"Difficult to Configure, Not Effective"

What do you like best?

The price point is nice, apparently, since we also have Symantec Backup Exec (15.)

What do you dislike?

The interface is difficult to navigate, when you want to place an exception for software you have two options. 1. you can put the file on the list, and when (if) it gets flagged by SEP, you can mark it. 2. You can manually put it in. If you choose option 1, it will be blocked but not logged, ergo, you can't put it on the list. If you choose option 2, it still becomes blocked and you have to disable SEP. These are just a few.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They are meeting with me and a Symantec Engineer to go over my qualms, and show me how great this product is. I am not convinced, but we will see.

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

We are not really solving anything. This software is more of a pain than an asset. It might be cheap, but it is NOT effective AT ALL. I mean, it blocks EVERYTHING. So, if that's your goal, it's good.

"A proven product by Symantec"

What do you like best?

It's a total solution from Symantec that includes protection for all the components in a business computing environment. From Desktop to Server to Email and Web Browsing, Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition has it all. We are very pleased.

What do you dislike?

The cost is probably a dislike. Also, major updates are sometimes challenging. Interim updates or anti-virus definition updates are not as bad. Overall, there are not many items that would fall into the dislike category for this Symantec Endpoint Protection product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Symantec has proven to be a leader, not just in the past but also with current and future plans. Highly recommend this product.

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

One product or platform that can protect a whole business computing environment is what this product solves for us. The benefits would include minimal IT assistance that is needed along with ease of updating.

"Symantec Endpoint Solution"

What do you like best?

Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition is a cybersecurity safeguard suite explicitly intended for requirements of the private company. Symantec comprises of anti-malware, interruption counteractive action and firewall highlights for server and PCs. Symantec Endpoint is the best tool to monitoring N/W security status, activities, software, authorization and authentication.

What do you dislike?

I think the online interface is somewhat unwieldy. I feel that from the firewall point of view it appears somewhat hard to influence it to do what you need it to do, and lamentably, their help isn't amazingly useful in such manner.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend this product as it accomplishes all the check boxes to be a good protection package for a small entity and at a reasonable price.

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

I have been using Symantec endpoint protection for malware detection, intrusion detection and risk management.

"Great security tool for a small to medium business"

What do you like best?

It's a great tool and glitch free software. Runs like a charm on windows. It does not take up a ton of space and can be easily pushed to user systems. The virus scans and malicious tool scans do not make your system slow. The background function is good as you would not know when the scan is running. The scheduling function is great as well since you can always schedule the scan to run when you are not using your system.

What do you dislike?

Slightly expensive, could have been better offers direct from the company without re sellers putting in margin. bulk license is good in this case if you expect to be scaling up else you might want to evaluate a bit more. You might be left with a few extra licences. You might want to improve the scheduling function as it's working fine but gives trouble at times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for this product if you feel you need the kind of advanced level of protection. If you are dealing with Data it's an absolute must. They are pretty good hackers out there and such kind of tools coupled with a couple of cyber security tools is a must for your organisation. You need to keep in mind the number of licences you need.

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

The ease of managing the network of user systems & protecting all users from harmful content. The benefits of the tool is that it stays up to date. Any updates are downloaded directly onto user systems. Their protection is quite good & reputable in the anti virus industry. It has the option on running on the cloud so pushing updates to all users. Scaling is a key benefit we have been able to realize as we grow and add more and more users it becomes easy to add new user systems on to the platform.

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

A great tool to protect your company or organization for any kind of threat. You can also prevent the installation from unwanted sources.

"Lives to its name: complete endpoint protection "

What do you like best?

User interface of Symantec is very simple and friendly. All the logs pertaining to threats including spyware, malicious ware can be easily exported in csv format for further analysis. The advanced behavioral protection feature is an interesting addition to the software.

What do you dislike?

As a user, it takes considerable amount of time to open the icon on my desktop; generally requires 4 to 5 mouse clicks.

It is worthwhile to investigate how Symantec uses past and real-time network data to detect threats possible in the future, thereby, ensuring the contextual applicability for the business. Further, how often the software is updated is a noteworthy aspect.

"Comprehensive security software suite for desktop and servers"

What do you like best?

Includes firewall and antimalware prevention.Symantec insight is a cloud based data base of malicious programs and files,which is used to prevent installation of such programs.

What do you dislike?

Constant admin access is required even for basic actions like checking or conducting malware scans or trying to run/install new software or modify/update/uninstall old software. This disadvantage applies to desktop and server controls both. Hence the lower level user cannot conduct basic operations without asking an admin for permission and access every single time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best software for endpoint security and management.Offers discount pricing on request.

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

Server connected device security and automated malware scans of all systems.Better data insights provided to admin,for indepth realization of system usage by empolyees.
