Symantec Advanced Threat Protection Review

Real-time threat analysis is quick, takes action immediately

What is most valuable?

Real-time threat analysis is quick and takes action on threats immediately.

What needs improvement?

There are some ‎features that would add value to this product. One of them would be a graphical presentation of threats that the system has encountered. 

It should be able to collect information if the agent is disabled.

It also needs network-based threat protection for shared folders and files. 

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues yet with stability. The great advantage in using this product is it creates multiple services.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Currently we have 800-plus nodes connected with this solution, without any issues. The solution is scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

I rate tech support eight out of 10.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

As a firm we used three or four different products from the top vendors. The slight differences which made us go with Symantec were technical support‎, ease of use, easy deployment of rules, and a better view from the dashboard.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing is good. It is nice to have a great product at a fair price, rather to have an insecure product.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Mcafee, Next-Generation Security.

What other advice do I have?

I think you should procure this product. It is a long-term investment.
