Cons
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.There is plenty of room for improvement with this product, and it could start with platform metrics.

The whitelisting feature does not work as expected.The enterprise edition does not report attacks on external devices.I know they were just bought out by Broadcom and there have been some difficulties with Broadcom as far as getting license renewals, etc. Mostly, due to the fact that it's confusing, even for the vendor, people are turned off by it. The vendors are telling us that it can take weeks for them to get a renewal quote, nevermind the actual renewal.This solution is resource-heavy.We had issues that we were never able to understand why they were happening. For example, clients were not getting their updates and we were never able to figure out why. What we did in such cases was reboot the machine and reinstall the software, and then it worked. But we were never able to figure out exactly why it stopped the updates.They are lacking the visibility that you get in a heuristical, next-generation AI product.They lack the visibility you get in a heuristical, artificial, AI type of product, like a next-gen antivirus.It needs to die. In my opinion, Symantec was a really great security company, 10, 15 years ago. They went out, they bought all the great tools and then they never did anything with them. So they've just fallen behind and there's nothing that's going to work now to bring them back up the date that's going to regain user confidence.

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.
