"This product is a solid, all-in-one solution for enterprise data management.""The most valuable features are the messaging features and shared folders.""The solution is pretty stable.""The most valuable feature is that it works in the background so that the end-users are not aware of what is happening on the laptop.""The solution is great for large-scale deployments.""In general terms, it is working properly and according to our expectations. The comfort of feeling secure is the most valuable. Some customers had certain fears about changing the product because no one wants to lose any kind of information or to have some problems or inconsistencies while migrating from one product to another.""I like the management aspect of this solution. You don't want to have end-users tweak or set it themselves, so the fact that you could do it from a central point helped us a lot.""Its management is good, and it is also scalable and mostly stable."

Cons
"Integration with central management needs improvement.""I would like to see better compatibility with mobile devices.""The solution should have better synchronization with active directory users and passwords for use in the encryption.""Sometimes the server console is very slow, so the performance could be improved."

"The instability of the company and lack of presence in the Middle East is affecting product use.""Its remote deployment should be improved. Currently, there is no remote deployment for Symantec Endpoint Encryption. You have to install it manually. There are some issues with AD integration and the time taken to reflect a password on the Endpoint Encryption Manager when a new user has changed the password, but they are already working on these issues, and these will be resolved in the next release.""The program's disk encryption is not very friendly with Microsoft OS updates. We have a problem with updates failing unless we use a time-consuming work-around.""Its decryption time needs to be improved. Currently, its decryption time is very long, and it takes double time than encryption. They need to work on that. Its encryption time is fine.""They have too high of a price tag. That's why they're losing the market share.""What I didn't find helpful in the version we used is the fact that all devices had to be on the same network for us to push through the encryption.""Symantec Endpoint Encryption can improve by being more secure.""The initial setup is a bit complex."

Pricing and Cost Advice
