Pros
The valuable features are device control, SONOR, and anti-virus.The firewall, malware, and anti-virus protection have earned its keep in times past by catching the unexpected.This solution helps in that I can control quite a few computers from our central location, with ease.The most amazing qualities of Symantec Endpoint Protection is that it provides a total solution to all virus problems.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.

From a technology point of view, it is very simple to install, it's not heavy on the endpoint in terms of the amount of processing cycles. It is simple to deploy and the interfaces are easy. You don't need to be a scientist to operate it.Scalable and stable.It's a good solution, and they have something called Suite incorporating many, many engines like encryption, GLB, anti-virus.This solution protects us from virus attacks before they affect the organization.The product offers almost all of the features the client expects from such a solution.I would emphasize the ease of use and the quality of operations. Trend Micro is quite stable.The ease of deployment is one of its most valuable features.The scalability is perfect.

Cons
I would like to see improvements in the anti-virus and the device control features.Managements' number one item on the "Wish List" would have to do with the real-time scan of external media inserted into any client.In the next release of this solution, I would like to see more to do with malware, encryption technology, and controlling mobile devices.It is only available to use on computers with higher-end specs.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.

I think the one place where we like where they lacking is in a unified style dashboard.Could channel video more efficiently,We cover many things, but there is something called ATP, advanced threat prevention. I think they need to invest in this technology.The alert, or warning function, needs to be improved.Product performance needs improvement. Customers face the same performance issues on the endpoint of the product. We need improvement on that side.Technical support is very very slow. There is no French support. Only English. The experts are in England, the United States, or Japan, I don't know where. So the support is really lacking.We had a few occasions where we had to turn off our clients' computers to upgrade the drivers.There is room for improvement in next-gen attacks protection.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.

It's well priced at a yearly rate. The price itself depends on whether the solution is full suite, half suite, or some other engine. It's different according to the consumer's requests.I think that this product is expensive.On a yearly basis, it's about $50,000. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.Pricing and licensing are competitive with other solutions on the market.
