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

Pros
It has drastically reduced the attack surface for local administrative rights and the chance of escalation of privilege. We've removed, at this point, close to 98 percent of the local administrative accounts on workstations. If there were an incident, it would stop at that point and we'd be able to know.Monitoring and recording are valuable features, particularly the recording.This is the number one product for privilege account security.

Cons
We have had some major issues with the tool, but we have worked with the R&D teams and we have worked with support. There is room for improvement, especially on response times. But they're working on it and they're doing the best they can.I'd like to see the product include out of the box connectors.For an experienced system implementer it will take approximately one day. However, for somebody who is inexperienced it may take up to five days.

In the next release of this solution, I would like to see more to do with malware, encryption technology, and controlling mobile devices.It is only available to use on computers with higher-end specs.The Centralized Management could be improved.The reporting function needs to be more user friendly in general.The detection and response can always be improved.If you're not charged with administering the product and you don't do it every day it can sometimes be difficult to remember how to do the simple basic things, so some type of help or guidance for your most regular or frequent tasks would be good.Reporting in this solution needs improvement.The overall quality of the product needs to be improved because with the last session we had several issues with new versions. Also, the solution needs better protections.

Pricing and Cost Advice

We pay our licensing fees on a yearly basis, and everything is included in that price.The pricing is a little bit more expensive than other competitors, if you compare it to Kaspersky, for example, or McAfee.The problem is Symantec is more expensive than other vendors.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.
