Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) Review

Good standard malware detection via classic defs and newer heuristic controls


What is our primary use case?

Standard use case: firewall, malware, app/device control, reporting of compliance, etc. We use other features too.

How has it helped my organization?

A secure stable product, and good customer service of this product from the vendor. Waiting to see how the cloud version pans out.

What is most valuable?

  • Application/device control. Wish encryption detection was integrated though. 
  • Good standard malware detection via classic defs and newer heuristic controls.

What needs improvement?

  • Device encryption status and coding off of said status. 
  • Better inherent checks against duplicate IDs.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
