"The encryption feature is very good.""Their cloud features such as Cloud Endpoint security, ransomware modules, malware, and other modules are very effective.""We can extend it to all of the critical endpoints and the servers, and we can ensure the confidentiality of the data.""The most valuable features are the messaging features and shared folders.""This product is a solid, all-in-one solution for enterprise data management.""The most valuable feature is that it works in the background so that the end-users are not aware of what is happening on the laptop.""You get updates and other encrypted files easily.""The solution is great for large-scale deployments."

More Symantec Endpoint Encryption Pros »

"It is really constrained as an environment because you cannot change something that would be useful. It is a very good product because it is very similar to what you have on-premises. Yes, it is constrained, but it is expected because it is a platform as a service so it has to be constrained.""Having a single command to encrypt a table would be an improvement."

More Oracle Advanced Security Cons »

"The agent can be improved on the solution. Right now, we have an Endpoint Protection agent as well as an encryption agent and another for the DLVs and other services. We would prefer a single agent for the entire product.""I think that they should improve the on-premises version to include the manageability and simplicity that is available on the cloud.""If for example, a user forgets the endpoint key, they cannot access their data. We need a support team that is a single point of contact for the IT entity to be trained and to have documentation for troubleshooting and managing the solution.""The program's disk encryption is not very friendly with Microsoft OS updates. We have a problem with updates failing unless we use a time-consuming work-around.""The instability of the company and lack of presence in the Middle East is affecting product use.""I do not find the environment to be very user-friendly.""More features need to be included in the encryption software.""The solution does slow down the device a little bit, once it's installed."

Questions from the Community

Top Answer: Encrypting a single column is straightforward, but encrypting at the table level requires more work and takes longer to complete. Having a single command to encrypt a table would be an improvement.
Top Answer: So far, whatever requirement or needs that we have had, are handled by the database itself. We have not needed to design anything aside from it. Overall, it is a good solution and I can recommend it… more »
Top Answer: I like the management aspect of this solution. You don't want to have end-users tweak or set it themselves, so the fact that you could do it from a central point helped us a lot.
Top Answer: What I didn't find helpful in the version we used is the fact that all devices had to be on the same network for us to push through the encryption. With lockdowns and people working from home nowadays… more »
