Symantec Data Center Security Review

Endpoint protection that scales well and is easy to deploy

What is our primary use case?

Symantec Data Center Security is part of our overall security solution that includes anti-virus, anti-spam, and anti-malware protection. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the endpoint protection system.

What needs improvement?

This solution clashes with Microsoft defender, which results in performance degradation on the machine.

Technical support needs more local representation in India.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Symantec Data Center Security for between three and four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not seen any bugs or glitches.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This solution scales well. We have approximately five people using this solution. One is an administrator and the rest are end-users.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have had some issues with support because it is not available in our region in India. This means that it is very difficult for us to get direct support from Symantec, which is why we employ a consultant to manage this solution for us.

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

We did use another solution prior to this one.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is pretty straightforward and not very complex.

What about the implementation team?

We have a consultant who manages our solution. If there is an installation or anything needs changes then he takes care of it.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this is a pretty good product.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
