Cons
The solution does slow down the device a little bit, once it's installed.More features need to be included in the encryption software.I do not find the environment to be very user-friendly.The instability of the company and lack of presence in the Middle East is affecting product use.The program's disk encryption is not very friendly with Microsoft OS updates. We have a problem with updates failing unless we use a time-consuming work-around.If for example, a user forgets the endpoint key, they cannot access their data. We need a support team that is a single point of contact for the IT entity to be trained and to have documentation for troubleshooting and managing the solution.I think that they should improve the on-premises version to include the manageability and simplicity that is available on the cloud.The agent can be improved on the solution. Right now, we have an Endpoint Protection agent as well as an encryption agent and another for the DLVs and other services. We would prefer a single agent for the entire product.

The solution really needs to improve the data pile. With the pile, if we could also do a column-level encryption or something like third-level encryptions that would be great. It would be a slight variation of same product.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost of this solution is a little on the higher side.The pricing is fair but there is variability in our area that needs to be addressed.Depending on how many modules you will use (up to five) the licensing will be more expensive.They have two solutions for encryption including Symantec Endpoint Encryption and PGP Endpoint Encryption. With one PGP license, you can deploy the two solutions. The PGP license gives you two options.The licensing costs yearly are $5000.It can be expensive. However, if you plan to scale or are at a large enterprise company, this product could be what you need.

I'm unsure of the exact pricing of the licensing, but I'd estimate we pay approximately $5-7,000. There are licensing as well as support costs and other ancillary fees.
