Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) Review

GUPs are valuable when throttling new updates through a slower WAN​, though we have had random issues with the apps


What is most valuable?

  • Central management
  • Group update points (GUPs): They are valuable when throttling new updates through a slower WAN.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Reduced burden of responding to alerts.
  • Granular security lets lower level techs triage issues as they come in.

What needs improvement?

  • Reporting without Altiris should be improved. 
  • More cloud-based functionality, but that seems happening going forward. 
  • It should have hypervisor level AV protection for VMs, so you do not need a client on the systems.

For how long have I used the solution?

Five years supporting it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Random issues with the apps. The built in firewall is tricky sometimes to get an app working in it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, I have not. I have always found Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) to be scalable.
