It has the ability to rollback a ransomware infection instantly and with minimal disruption to the user & provides robust reporting.The solution offers very rich details surrounding threats or attacks.We have a preference for their receptor. It's good at finding many EFC files. EFC files could have a virus.The most valuable feature of this solution is the user-friendly interface.All of the features are valuable. The way that it integrates into management with fault correction capabilities over is especially valuable. Any of the full gamut of the features that it provides are useful to us.I have found the activity timeline and threat analysis to be particularly useful.In the past, we were not able to identify a few viruses, but now we are able to identify them because of the machine learning feature.It has good visibility features and it's straightforward.

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
Set up is very labor-intensive.The solution needs better reporting on new threats and malware. The reporting is present, but I can't find the information easily.It's fine. It's correcting all the EFC files with a virus. All the achievements, maximum EFC files. Many EFC files will be flagged as a virus. Some virus databases need to be updated. The model is good at finding many EFC files. The trouble is it needs to be updated.This solution would be more attractive to customers if the price were lower.In terms of improvement, I would like to see better alerting to let us know if there is anything wrong with SentinelOne working on the endpoint of the computer.I would like to see something a little more sophisticated than simply being able to mark a false positive as safe or there's usually just one or two options in certain areas and they're a little rudimentary at this stage.The reporting needs improvement and I would like to see a more granular level of administrative privileges.There is not much flexibility in terms of policy fine-tuning. We can turn it off or turn it on, but, there's nothing much else to do. Everything is predefined. It's good in a way, but you don't get much flexibility if you want to do something particular.

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
The per-seat cost is low, but you have to commit to a certain number of licenses for a year.

Read more »

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.
