In terms of most valuable features, I would say the console which provides us an exciter to keep the laptops up-to-date, gives us alerts when devices are not up-to-date, and so on.

We had issues that we were never able to understand why they were happening. For example, clients were not getting their updates and we were never able to figure out why. What we did in such cases was reboot the machine and reinstall the software, and then it worked. But we were never able to figure out exactly why it stopped the updates.They are lacking the visibility that you get in a heuristical, next-generation AI product.They lack the visibility you get in a heuristical, artificial, AI type of product, like a next-gen antivirus.It needs to die. In my opinion, Symantec was a really great security company, 10, 15 years ago. They went out, they bought all the great tools and then they never did anything with them. So they've just fallen behind and there's nothing that's going to work now to bring them back up the date that's going to regain user confidence.In the next release of this solution, I would like to see more to do with malware, encryption technology, and controlling mobile devices.I would like to see improvements in the anti-virus and the device control features.Managements' number one item on the "Wish List" would have to do with the real-time scan of external media inserted into any client.It is only available to use on computers with higher-end specs.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
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.
