Most Helpful Review
Handles the important task of virtual patching, although the agent-based version has performance issues
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The most valuable feature is the virus and malware detection capability.
This solution has helped us because it is really useful for blocking all kinds of viruses.
Threat protection has always worked well.
Endpoint protection has improved our operations by protecting our servers from potential cyber threats.
Endpoint Protection is the next generation. It covers antivirus, spamware, ransomware...
The fact that it has centralized management is the most valuable feature.
The technical support is very good. They have an Indian support team, so there are no delays in receiving support.
Symantec has cloud-based endpoint protection, so whether a user is off the network or on the network, the endpoint will be protected by the cloud.
The most valuable feature is the virtual patching.
The most valuable features are web security, email filtering, and content filtering.
It has improved functions by bringing us complete security on our clients' virtual environment.
It has a perfect SaaS which integrates with AWS, offering flexibility to deploy quickly and easily in the cloud.
Deep Security enables us to bridge the gap between patching windows using the Virtual Patching feature. This allows us to make sure full patching is tested properly in our testing environments before rollout.
It provides a comprehensive feature set and a strong security baseline for us with integrations into other security tools.
There are compliance issues for legacy applications and after applying OS security patches. The product's HIPS (Host Intrusion Prevention System) modules do the job for you automatically, without any downtime.
Very user-friendly interface, easy to understand.
This solution needs better compatibility with services and applications.
Sometimes, when we are creating a new policy, some of the clients are not being updated with the latest policy.
This latest version has proven unreliable for management and installation.
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.
Any external device which is inserted into a computer should be subject to an auto-scan policy, to automatically scan it before accepting the device... They need to make it more user-friendly, so that when anyone puts in a USB stick it will be scanned, popping up any problems before it is used.
About four years back, Symantec's signature was very heavy and their signature patch was around 200MB or 300MB files.
There are a few negative points. They should separate the feature for each separate solution for mobile devices. The second one is about the price, it's expensive. Finally, the third would be the complexity of implementation.
I think the CPU dependence should be enhanced.
When implementing this solution, sometimes we have challenges with SQL migration.
The support for email protection can be improved.
It needs better global visibility of the virtual environment.
I would like them to add EDR features, moving away from traditional signature-based anti-malware.
The default reports provided don't provide much insight.
I would rate tech support in the range of six to eight out of 10. Time to provide solution could be improved.
It needs to improve its integration with a lot of other products. This should be in the road map because we have a lot of SaaS-based appliances which are not connected with each other.
They are still working on the company integration from TippingPoint because this was a recent acquisition from a few years ago. So, a Tipping Point integration with Deep Security, having one single pane of glass dashboard, would provide us a simple use case.
Pricing and Cost Advice
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. The
Pricing 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.
Each annual client license is around 1200 or 1600 INR.
Pricing and licensing are important to us when choosing a product.
It's not cheap.
It is the better product, even if it is a little on the higher side.
Some of our customers complain about the cost of this solution.
The cost is approximately six thousand Qatari Riyal ($1650 USD) per user.
Purchasing this solution through the AWS Marketplace was secure and quick. AWS has good prices for a good product.
The training needs improvement. It is expensive (classroom training), and it is often hard to find answers by yourself using the documentation.
The AWS licensing model is scalable and easy to use, but could do with tiered discounts. I am not sure how well this model will scale when we start to use Auto Scaling with AWS resources.
We are an original partner with AWS, so a couple of customers chose to directly take it from AWS Marketplace. A couple of customers will want us to take care of the billing. So, it's a mixed type of reaction that we receive from the customer.
The price is reasonably good as compared to other products into the market.
Purchasing on the AWS Marketplace is like shopping on Amazon Prime.
