There is some rather elaborate detection compared to other providers.Technical support is very responsive. You just have to open a ticket. They respond in a timely manner. Their response is good. I'm satisfied.It has certainly helped out our audit efforts because we each stay compliant in terms of various security standards.

Cons
The integration is limited. The solution needs to offer better integration with multiple vendors.Product could include a user interface and be made simpler for customers to configure.Something that needs to improve, is the end-point protection.Most people are confused about how to use the right integration of the right Fortinet product.At least once a week we have a false alarm. This needs to be adjusted so that we get fewer of these occurrences.The response time from technical support should be improved.The licensing can be very confusing. It needs to be simplified.In the next release, I would like to see machine learning and anti-exploitation included.

The cloud platform needs to have improvement in terms of the user interface and the different capabilities it has available. It needs to match the other leading next-gen EDR products that are available in the market. That's the reason why we are stepping away from Symantec. Their cloud environment is just generally lacking in comparison to others.There are limits with respect to blocking files by hash value or blocking IP addresses, and these limits should be removed.It's a strange situation where the infrastructure of the consumer or customer is behind some kind of firewall and they have always used some kind of customized proxy. In this situation, the ATP has a very tough time to pass the information to the cloud and back. To fix, it requires a more elaborate and complex configuration for that particular case.The administration interface needs a lot of improvement. It should be UI based, and simple. They need to improve it. It's pretty much not that friendly compared to what we were using as Bitdefender before. It's okay but is improving, actually.An improvement could be made on the reporting because then it would be easier to collect information and submit it for compliance.

Overview

Today’s threats are increasingly sophisticated and often bypass traditional malware security by masking their malicious activity. A sandbox augments your security architecture by validating threats in a separate, secure environment.

It's also a key component of our Advanced Threat Protection solution.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection is a single unified solution that uncovers, prioritizes, and remediates advanced attacks. The product fuses intelligence from endpoint, network, and email control points, as well as Symantec’s massive global sensor network, to stop threats that evade individual security products. It leverages your existing Symantec Endpoint Protection and Symantec Email Security.cloud investments, so it does not require the deployment of any new agents. You can deploy a new installation of Symantec Advanced Threat Protection and start to discover suspicious activity in under an hour. Using the proven technology in Symantec Insight reputation based detection, Symantec SONAR behavioral analysis with the new Symantec Cynic sandbox and file analysis platform, Symantec Advanced Threat Protection provides better detection and prioritization than other vendors, allowing security analysts to “zero in” on just those specific security events of importance.
