Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The initial setup is very straightforward. The deployment of the server doesn't take so long; about a day or two max.
It has also improved our hunt ability with quick search tools, to zone in on malware or other anomalies. It is able to link items to incidents from other consoles, and works natively with the SIEM.
It has a rating system now so you can rate things up or down, depending on your environment. This means alerting can be customized, yet still pick up anomalies.
Reporting is great, it is easy to do a quick search through 45 days of data for something of interest.
After rack and stack, devices were up and running base configurations within two hours. As with any IPS, tuning is required to stop false positives. This is no different, but the ease of use of the interface allowed my team to start making adjustments within a few hours.
The data matching features are the most valuable due to the easy policy setup and implementation.
The most valuable feature of this solution is endpoint security.
I'm able to track everyone who is trying to send information outside the environment and to know if they are not supposed to be sending it. I'm also able to see the people who are accessing or maybe try to access the information they are not supposed to be accessing based on their level of classification. It gives me overall control of who has got access to what and at what point. And who can do what with specific information.
The features I like most about this solution is the endpoint modules because it gives us the protection we need.
They have a feature on the management side called the document indexer. Let's say you have a unique document with many near identical versions, which have one or several values that change, while the rest of the content stays the same. You can collect 50 of those documents and put them into this feature of the Symantec DLP system. It will compress them and create a profile specifically for that document.
The product is very stable.
The synchronize application detection policies have been very good.
We are able to contain our confidential data in our environment.
We position the solution as an antivirus, but this part of the solution needs improvement. They need to generally enhance the features that they have, rather than adding anything new.
The interface bug needs to be squashed once and for all. This has been the predominant issue with an otherwise stellar product. It reboots itself unscheduled, about once a month, due to a memory buffer flaw in the interface.
The enforce service is difficult to understand, and free courses made available on the internet would be useful.
This product is very powerful but it is very complex, so making it simpler to use would be an improvement.
In a majority of cases, most of the companies are using DLP for endpoint sessions, where you have a user that might be communicating information outside of the company. However, they forget there are actual interfaces that can directly communicate with either the database or other files within the data center that uses end-to-end encryption. In those cases, you might need things like your DLP to be able to monitor and block some of that. The solution needs to catch information communicated through the data center on the server-side.
I do have a problem with the database.
That fine tuning has to be done for the customer as well as the vendor. So if I take Symantec DLP, we have to have some final fine tuning but we may need some time developing this depending on the customer. This is an area where something can be done to improve the product.
Virtualization is not currently supported.
We want a more proactive reporting structure.
They could improve the predefined reports because they don't have much information. We would like detailed reports.
Pricing and Cost Advice
You license by the number of days of logs you need to maintain visibility for. Forty-five days is a good solid number for a company with around a 10k user base.
In terms of pricing, Symantec DLP works with Oracle Database. Oracle Database licensing is much more expensive than other databases. That might be a drawback for customers. The pricing is on a yearly subscription basis.
We are happy with the pricing and licencing.
The pricing is competitive and not pricey. We also receive corporate discounts.
The pricing and licensing are based on per user endpoints.
From what I know the pricing is good, it's not too expensive. If you negotiate you can get a good price.

|Fidelis Elevate Platform, Fidelis Enterprise, Fidelis Cloud||Symantec DLP|
Fidelis Elevate integrates network visibility, data loss prevention, deception, and endpoint detection and response into one unified solution. Now your security team can focus on the most urgent threats and protect sensitive data rather than spending time validating and triaging thousands of alerts.
Keeping sensitive corporate information safe and compliant has never been easy. But today, you’re faced with a totally new set of data protection challenges. Sensitive information is leaving the safety of your corporate network as more employees share files over consumer cloud storage services and access those files on their own mobile devices. The number of targeted cyber attacks continues to grow, as cybercriminals develop effective new methods for defeating traditional security measures and stealing corporate information. And as all of these factors converge, it becomes increasingly difficult to manage corporate information and protect it against loss and theft.
Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP) provides a comprehensive approach to information protection that embraces today’s cloud- and mobile-centered realities. With DLP, you can:
• Discover where data is stored across all of your cloud, mobile, network, endpoint, and storage systems
• Monitor how data is being used, whether your employees are on or off the network
• Protect data from being leaked or stolen—no matter where it’s stored or how it’s used
