- It is stable
- No maintenance is required after a successful installation phase
- It is more than a classic Anti-virus solution: both SONAR and IPS help to protect the system
- The application and device policies are great features to help administration
After the initial setup, you don’t have to worry about the AV clients. It simply works.
The management of the server is a bit complex. It takes time get used to it. When upgrading the software for clients, you have to link the upgrade package to every sub-folder, and there is no inheritance.
We have used this solution for three years.
I did not encounter any issues with stability.
I did not encounter any issues with scalability.
We needed help for one or two issues and the support team was good.
We used another product and we switched to SEP because of the costs.
The initial setup was straightforward. The ability of the package to uninstall the old AV was a big plus in my case.
I’d say SEP deserves the money.
We did not evaluable other options. Anti-virus is not something you can test in 3-4 days. The pros and cons take time to show up.
Before installation, take your time to plan how you will manage your environment. If you already have another AV, please first check if SEP can auto-uninstall the old AV.
