We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The stability of the solution is perfect. I believe it's the most stable solution on the market right now.The simplicity of use is its most valuable feature. You can very clearly see things.The most valuable features of this solution are the IPS and the integration with ISE.For the initial first level of support, we provide it from our side. If there's escalation required, we use Cisco tech for the AMP. And again, they are perfect. I mean, one of the best, compared to any other vendors.I am told that we get over 100 million emails a month. This filters them down and allows only somewhere about three million emails, which is a great help.Its most valuable features are its scalability and advanced threat protection for customers.Real-time threat prevention using sandboxing, file trajectory, and retrospective security.

Cons
The reporting and analytics areas of the solution need to be improved.The initial setup is a bit complex because you need to execute existing antiviruses or security software that you have on your device.In the next release, I would for it to have back up abilities. I would like the ability to go back to a point in time to when my PC was uninfected and to the moment of when the infection happened.In the next version of this solution, I would like to see the addition of local authentication.The solution needs more in-depth analytics.I would like them to add whatever makes filtering more advanced in scanning and blocking for malware in emails.We would like to have an API integration with a SIEM solution, because as far as I know, it currently hasn't yet been released.It does not include encryption and decryption of local file shares.

The agent can be improved on the solution. Right now, we have an Endpoint Protection agent as well as an encryption agent and another for the DLVs and other services. We would prefer a single agent for the entire product.We would like some advanced security protection features.It's a bit difficult to get good support. Their response times are really bad.I can only patch monthly. I don't know what the solution is there, besides being vulnerable for three weeks out of four. But there's got to be an option somehow.I would like them to have integration with a wider range of non-Symantec products.
