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.

Cons
I would like to see an improvement in the interface.This solution needs an upgrade in reporting. I have heard from RSA that they are working on this, but as of yet it is not available.The initial setup requires a high level of skill.The solution is modular, for example you can buy the RSA ePack, which you buy as a module is not part of the conduit solution. They could include it and have it as an all-in-one solution.

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 Cost Advice
I do not have any opinion on the pricing or licensing of the product.With RSA, there is flexibility in choosing the service, products, and the range that meets your requirement, as well as they are flexible in terms of pricing.They can easily adjust if you have the requirements which are required. If you have a budget cut or a budget constraint, they can bend.It is highly scalable. It can be bought based on your requirements.

We pay our licensing fees on a yearly basis, and everything is included in that price.The pricing is a little bit more expensive than other competitors, if you compare it to Kaspersky, for example, or McAfee.The problem is Symantec is more expensive than other vendors.We receive a discounted price for this solution because we are a non-profit organization.Compared to other products and brands here in Mexico, the price is okay, somewhere in the middle. Our solution is unique in that it can adapt to a variety of pricing and licensing constraints considering we have the corporate, government, and academic mandates. ThePricing 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.
