"The firewall, malware, and anti-virus protection have earned its keep in times past by catching the unexpected.""The administrator's console is very good and easy to manage with it. Deploying patches, definition updates and report is simple.""The installation was very easy.""Its response time is the most valuable. It is very quick.""I have found the solution to be very scalable, we have 700 employees using the solution in our organization.""Its ease of use in deploying it and regular updates are most valuable.""This solution helps in that I can control quite a few computers from our central location, with ease.""The anti-virus and firewall policies are the most valuable features of this solution."

More Symantec End-User Endpoint Security Pros »

"The support is very bad. They're not fast at all. Trend Micro's support is much better.""They need to develop a more flexible product that can be scaled such that it fits well into a small business or a bigger, enterprise-level solution.""This solution clashes with Microsoft defender, which results in performance degradation on the machine.""Could have better reporting capabilities and better support."

"Since the acquisition by Broadcom, we are no longer receiving the proper support.""The solution could be more secure and scalable.""If the agent can be minimized so that it can work with in-memory concepts, that would be ideal. As of now, it is file-based, signature-based.""They provide the updates of the client, and those clients need a reboot after the upgrade, which is something we don't like. We don't like to reboot the server after the upgrade because we have live applications. If we do a reboot, it can impact the business as well.""It would be interesting if Symantec Endpoint protection could also manage Windows Defender. If they were to add a feature, it would be nice if you could see the Symantec client and the Windows Defender client in case you choose to deploy both.""The agent shouldn't use up so many resources at the endpoint when scanning and protecting.""Every time an OS comes out, I have to upgrade the Symantec product. They don't know how to patch it. If they would produce a patch instead of uninstalling or installing over the current version and rebooting I'd be a lot happier with the product.""There is room for improvement in the zero-day threat detection system."

More Symantec Data Center Security Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licensing costs are huge compared to what is normally included in the licensing with other products such as the Microsoft products that we're using. We're paying between $300 and $400 per seat.""When comparing this solution to others in the current market it is expensive.""Symantec is expensive.""One great benefit is we do not need to activate a license for every endpoint. The price is fair.""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.""Its price should be reasonable.""When it comes to pricing, Sophos is preferrable to Symantec.""We pay our licensing fees on a yearly basis, and everything is included in that price."
