Symantec Endpoint Encryption Review

Enables us to easily get updates and other encrypted files

What is our primary use case?

We are currently working with companies in the financial sector which is why we are using this on-premises solution, because their compliance policies do not allow for cloud-based servers. Our clients are using the full encryptions. They're using Symantec Endpoint Encryption to secure their data. If someone loses their laptop, for example, they can wipe their disk and save their data from ending up with a third party.

What is most valuable?

I like all the features in Symantec Endpoint because they provide four or five features for end-users. They have three consoles for managing the data. Symantec also provides the licensing with the software. There is no need to enter the licensing or install files manually because it's bundled with the software. This is a good feature. Also, you get updates and other encrypted files easily. I also like the manage keys.

There is no need to add any features, because they are developing their own encryption methods.

What needs improvement?

Currently, all the software has been managed by BitLocker, but Windows does not suit every encryption management software. 

There are many apps that do that kind of thing. All the features are there so I don't think that needs to be on encryption software. I'm working with some end point management software and they are managing the software and connections, what can be installed and what is restricted, etc... But more features need to be included in the encryption software.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Symantec Endpoint Encryption for one year.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Their scalability is good. They are using three consoles and have full-consoling end point users for our solutions.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of one to ten I would rate Symantec Endpoint an eight.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
