Cons
One area of this product that has room for improvement is the disc encryption.They should provide bandwidth regulation, so we can monitor and regulate bandwidth.The remote deployment with Check Point Endpoint Security requires improvement. We have to depend on some of their deployment tools. I would like a system endpoint protection management tool or a remote deployment tool.Areas that have room for improvement are the scope of the product and, while I think the support is good, they can improve support as well.A couple of times, we experienced some sales issues.

I would like to see a hybrid version of this solution that covers both in-house and cloud-based servers.This solution needs better compatibility with services and applications.Sometimes, when we are creating a new policy, some of the clients are not being updated with the latest policy.This latest version has proven unreliable for management and installation.We must have complete dissolution with advance care protection but we are finding out that we need more Symantec technical specialists. We have identified a need to hire at least one more technical specialist familiar with Symantec to improve our solutions capabilities.Any external device which is inserted into a computer should be subject to an auto-scan policy, to automatically scan it before accepting the device... They need to make it more user-friendly, so that when anyone puts in a USB stick it will be scanned, popping up any problems before it is used.About four years back, Symantec's signature was very heavy and their signature patch was around 200MB or 300MB files.There are a few negative points. They should separate the feature for each separate solution for mobile devices. The second one is about the price, it's expensive. Finally, the third would be the complexity of implementation.

We receive a discounted price for this solution because we are a non-profit organization.Compared to other products and brands here in Mexico, the price is okay, somewhere in the middle. Our solution is unique in that it can adapt to a variety of pricing and licensing constraints considering we have the corporate, government, and academic mandates. ThePricing and licensing for our country is very good. It's not that expensive and the endpoint security is very good. It's not as cheap as some others, but they are not as good.We pay on a yearly basis...Zero-day threat or advanced attacks should be part of the endpoint. The product should not require you to buy a separate license.Each annual client license is around 1200 or 1600 INR.Pricing and licensing are important to us when choosing a product.It's not cheap.
