We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"For the initial first level of support, we provide it from our side. If there's escalation required, we use Cisco tech for the AMP. And again, they are perfect. I mean, one of the best, compared to any other vendors.""The most valuable features of this solution are the IPS and the integration with ISE.""The simplicity of use is its most valuable feature. You can very clearly see things.""The stability of the solution is perfect. I believe it's the most stable solution on the market right now.""I am really satisfied with the technical support.""It is a very stable program.""The solution's integration capabilities are excellent. It's one of the best features.""It doesn't impact the devices. It is an agent-based solution, and we see no performance knock on cell phones. That was a big thing for us, especially in the mobile world. We don't see battery degradation like you do with other solutions which really drain the battery, as they're constantly doing things. That can shorten the useful life of a device."

"Endpoint protection has improved our operations by protecting our servers from potential cyber threats.""Threat protection has always worked well.""This solution has helped us because it is really useful for blocking all kinds of viruses.""The most valuable feature is the virus and malware detection capability.""The most valuable feature for our organization is the antivirus, as our staff is the target of zero-day malware and viruses.""With Symantec, I always know this tool will be reliable and with the latest protection.""The feature I find most useful is the console for reporting.""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 are web security, email filtering, and content filtering.""The vulnerability scanning reduces false positives by quite a bit.""The most valuable feature is the virtual patching.""In terms of valuable features, I would say its intrusion prevention. Each and every IP connecting to the server gets scanned so we know everyone who is accessing our server and we can block whichever IP's do not belong to us at the firewall.""The initial setup was straightforward and we didn't have any problem with it.""This product offers good protection against many types of malware.""Automated virtual patching is a good feature.""It integrates well with the cloud; for example, AWS, and Google Cloud Provider."

Cons
"The solution needs more in-depth analytics.""In the next version of this solution, I would like to see the addition of local authentication.""The initial setup is a bit complex because you need to execute existing antiviruses or security software that you have on your device.""In the next release, I would for it to have back up abilities. I would like the ability to go back to a point in time to when my PC was uninfected and to the moment of when the infection happened.""The reporting and analytics areas of the solution need to be improved.""I would like more seamless integration.""The technical support is very slow.""I would recommend that the solution offer more availability in terms of the product portfolio and integration with third-party products."

"We must have complete dissolution with advance care protection but we are finding out that we need more Symantec technical specialists. We have identified a need to hire at least one more technical specialist familiar with Symantec to improve our solutions capabilities.""This latest version has proven unreliable for management and installation.""Sometimes, when we are creating a new policy, some of the clients are not being updated with the latest policy.""This solution needs better compatibility with services and applications.""I would like to see a hybrid version of this solution that covers both in-house and cloud-based servers.""If Symantec wants to improve, they should have a single event for all their products.""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.""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."

More Symantec End-User Endpoint Security Cons »

"The support for email protection can be improved.""The client can show as offline sometimes, and that becomes a bit difficult for troubleshooting. We end up basically redeploying the client. This is something that could be improved in the future.""When implementing this solution, sometimes we have challenges with SQL migration.""As for what could be improved, I think it should come with an XDR facility without any extra cost. They're always releasing new features, but we need to pay extra for them.""The situation with the currency in Turkey makes this solution a little bit on the expensive side, and if it were lowered then it would be more competitive.""They need to build in a central console because central integration is not very good right now.""Requires simplification, a fair amount of trouble shooting required.""The problem with this solution is that if you go on large sites you have to have an external database, which would increase the cost."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The costs of 50 licenses of AMP for three years is around $9,360.""The price is very good.""The visibility that we have into the endpoint and the forensics that we're able to collect give us value for the price. This is not an overly expensive solution, considering all the things that are provided. You get great performance and value for the cost.""Whenever you are doing the licensing process, I would highly advise to look at what other Cisco solutions you have in your organization, then evaluate if an Enterprise Agreement is the best way to go. In our case, it was the best way to go. Since we had so many other Cisco products, we were able to tie those in. We were actually able to get several Cisco security solutions for less than if we had bought three or four Cisco security solutions independently or ad hoc.""In our case, it is a straightforward annual payment through our Enterprise Agreement.""Our company was very happy with the price of Cisco AMP. It was about a third of what we were paying for System Center Endpoint Protection.""There are a couple of different consumption models: Pay up front, or if you have an enterprise agreement, you can do a monthly thing. Check your licensing possibilities and see what's best for your organization.""The Enterprise Agreement is like an all-you-can-eat buffet of Cisco products. In that vein, it was very affordable."

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. The""We receive a discounted price for this solution because we are a non-profit organization.""The problem is Symantec is more expensive than other vendors.""The pricing is a little bit more expensive than other competitors, if you compare it to Kaspersky, for example, or McAfee.""We pay our licensing fees on a yearly basis, and everything is included in that price.""Its price should be reasonable.""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.""The prices fluctuate, but this year I think it was maybe around $12,000."
