Pros
Iboss is a solution that prevents advanced persistent threats, and has a zero tolerance for attacks.Our primary use case for this product is DLP,Granular setup, which was able to set different levels of filters using the OUs in the AD.Because of iboss, I did not have to assign web filtering tasks to my techs on a daily basis.Valuable features: Within the filter: Controls (Web categories, applications, and Allow/Block list) and Network (local Subnets). Within the reporter: Logs (Event Log) and Reports.

It's nice to have it in the cloud where we can pull the reporting together for it so we can see what's happening in machines at different locations.The most valuable feature is the endpoint security.

Cons
Sometimes, obviously, there are bugs.Iboss is growing so fast that it is often hard for them to keep up with the challenges.SSL decryption: We had issues with learners using apps instead of using web browsers. This type of encryption is tough for any appliance in a BYOD environment.The area I would like to see improvement in is the ability with in the reporter to navigate directly to the content the user is traversing. It is kind of there, but it's not perfect. Quite frequently, I receive links that lead me to pages with error messages.To scale up, a new iboss Node Blade Chassis must be purchased.

It needs to be easier to set up rules for what sites it should allow or not allow us in certain areas of our computer for programs. It would also be nice really nice to have it give you better information about what it's finding. A lot of the alerts we get are very difficult to understand what it's actually telling you. It's too generic.There's a need for increased firewall functionality and capabilities. I'm not seeing a competitive Symantec cloud product. Specifically, functionalities with security as filtering from the cloud. I am aware that there is a product, a proxy in the cloud but I have compared it with other vendors and I don't find it that powerful. I think the worst thing that we're experiencing is very poor and inadequate technical support. It seems to me that tech support engineers aren't qualified to fulfill their job duties.
