Imtiaz HussainMalware Hunter and Incident Responder at Computer Network Systems
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"McAfee synchronizes security across the security fabric."
"The most valuable features are the integration with different modules like the DLP."
"It has a very good interface."
"The most valuable feature is the security, which is very effective compared to other products."
"The features that I have found most valuable are its ability to detect and delete known malware and the DLP in particular."
"The good part of this solution is that it protects the systems from malware etc. It also has a good user interface."
"It can be set up easily and then connected with the server to get the latest updates."
"The technical support is good. They are fast to respond and they have weekend support."
"With Symantec, I always know this tool will be reliable and with the latest protection."
"The feature I find most useful is the console for reporting."
"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 features I find the most valuable are the protection, the encryption, and the DLP."
"The most valuable features of this solution are that it is really easy to use, and it is secure."
"The solution is very stable."
"The solution is completely scalable."
"The most amazing qualities of Symantec Endpoint Protection is that it provides a total solution to all virus problems."
"They could try to introduce advanced threat detection."
"The advanced threat protection is not as good as our competitors."
"It's an expensive solution."
"The dashboard should be improved, as a more user-friendly version is required."
"They could improve the monitoring and classification of the data features."
"Sometimes, the updates don't happen successfully. The updates start, but they are not completed. Let's say there is a process that runs on the server-side every night, and it pushes the updates. Sometimes, these updates fail. I'm not sure whether it is a McAfee's problem or an internal problem with our systems. If this is really an issue with McAfee MOVE AntiVirus, McAfee can work on it and improve it in the next release. If it is an internal issue, I need to figure out why it is happening within the organization. We may need to take some technical support from McAfee to see what the problem is and then we need to get it fixed. At this point in time, all I know is that it happens sometimes."
"This solution is okay for users who are just office personnel. Developers or users who heavily use their laptops complain that it really slows down their laptops. Using this solution can be a big challenge from the performance perspective if you need a productive system that locally runs multiple VMs."
"I would like to see more emphasis on cybersecurity in the next release."
"If Symantec wants to improve, they should have a single event for all their products."
"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."
"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."
"The detection and response can always be improved."
"Reporting in this solution needs improvement."
"The reporting function needs to be more user friendly in general."
"The Centralized Management could be improved."
"It is only available to use on computers with higher-end specs."
"The licensing fees are billed on an annual basis."
"The solution is not expensive."
"It could be cheaper, but anybody would like a good product at a lesser price."
"The solution requires a license."
"Pricing is reasonable."
"There is no monthly fee. You just purchase the tool."
"The price of the solution is reasonable."
"The problem is Symantec is more expensive than other vendors."
"The pricing is a little bit more expensive than other competitors, if you compare it to Kaspersky, for example, or McAfee."
"We pay our licensing fees on a yearly basis, and everything is included in that price."
"Its price should be reasonable."
"There are subscription costs, we typically purchase the annual subscription. There can be other expenses too, for example, we use CrowdStrike also as part of our policy."
"The prices fluctuate, but this year I think it was maybe around $12,000."
