Symantec Advanced Threat Protection Review

Stable with good line protection; advanced threat protection is somewhat lacking

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution for endpoint protection. I'm an infrastructure team leader and we are a customer of Symantec.

What is most valuable?

Endpoint to network is a good feature, it can protect the line. 

What needs improvement?

In general, improvements can be made but nothing specific. I think SonicWall and McAfee are better solutions.  I think this is a good solution for someone looking for endpoint protection but not so great if you're looking for advanced threat protection.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for about six years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I think this is a stable solution, we haven't had any bugs or glitches. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I've contacted technical support many times, they are quite good and helpful. 

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup is relatively straightforward, deployment on our systems took about two or three months. We deployed with our own team. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a seven out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
