The advice I would give someone implementing this solution is that the management of the solution is very easy. You don't need a lot of people to manage the solution.
The signature update is done securely.
We used to have a lot of phishing attacks and all these kind of things for end-users so we decided that we needed endpoint security. We evaluated some solutions and found that Kaspersky is the most appropriate in terms of endpoint security and the speed of the user machine. The encryption is a major factor from our end.
It helps to improve our security for our mobile and VMware infrastructure. The remote tasks are great.
The blocking feature is the most valuable feature.
The centralized management is a nice features. It gives us the leeway to deal with other things as protection is being carried on in the background. We do not have to keep on watching as long as we have the right updates. It also saves us time.
It performs quite well as a firewall protection provider.
We have gained advanced threat protection without investing more into that area.
The most amazing qualities of Symantec Endpoint Protection is that it provides a total solution to all virus problems.
This solution helps in that I can control quite a few computers from our central location, with ease.
The solution is completely scalable.
The solution is very stable.
The features I find the most valuable are the protection, the encryption, and the DLP.
I like the firewall and the intrusion prevention features, and just the basic anti-malware and anti-virus seems to be pretty effective as well.
The most valuable features of this solution are that it is really easy to use, and it is secure.
The feature I find most useful is the console for reporting.
This solution needs improvement in the reporting section. Reporting in Kaspersky Endpoint is good but it's not that great. The platform needs to centralize reporting control.
There have been some performance issues. They provide good security, but this slows down the performance of machines' servers. The software is not updating as frequently as we need.
There should be some AI involved. We already have machine learning involved in recent releases but machine learning should be more enhanced in the upcoming versions.
The reports aren't so good. To make it a perfect ten they should improve the reports and web interface.
It needs more computer resources. They should have more anti-spam features.
If someone has the older version of the solution, and wants to install a newer version, they must remove all of the previous applications. Otherwise, there will be issues with the solution.
I would like to see better reporting.
It's does not have the architecture or structure to scale up.
It is only available to use on computers with higher-end specs.
In the next release of this solution, I would like to see more to do with malware, encryption technology, and controlling mobile devices.
The Centralized Management could be improved.
The reporting function needs to be more user friendly in general.
The detection and response can always be improved.
If you're not charged with administering the product and you don't do it every day it can sometimes be difficult to remember how to do the simple basic things, so some type of help or guidance for your most regular or frequent tasks would be good.
Reporting in this solution needs improvement.
The overall quality of the product needs to be improved because with the last session we had several issues with new versions. Also, the solution needs better protections.

Pricing 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.
