Quotes From Members Comparing Symantec Endpoint Protection vs Trend Micro OfficeScan

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
The centralized console is great for us. It gives us one centralized console to manage all of the endpoints.It's customizable, we're able to tune it to work with our products.The initial setup is straightforward.Managing SEP is very easy, and also troubleshooting part is easily managed.Helps to protect our organization from known attacks.I think the key thing for me, is interoperability, in that you can deploy it to Windows, Mac, and Linux. That's been a really important feature in the last two years. Now there's one management console to cover all three OSs.SEP, the entire suite of components, provides good endpoint protection.The IPS function (with no firewall needed to be installed in the SEP client) is quite good.

Stability is okay.

Cons
It would be nice to be able to manage the endpoints a bit further. A valuable attribute would be the management of software inventory, software deployment, and third-party software deployment. I would like to see the ability to deploy and delete unlicensed software. Many users try to install what they shouldn't, so that would be really useful.I would like to see even more customization, the possibility to do whitelisting. It needs to be a little bit more liberal on whitelisting, even to use the name if needed, instead of hashes.When, Microsoft releases a new OS version twice a year, you never know if the current version of Symantec Endpoint Protection will support it. You can have a lag between when Microsoft releases a new client - and then the current version doesn't work correctly - and it could be some months between updates from Symantec.I would like to see fileless attack protection.The biggest thing I would like to see is malware remediation, if there is some kind of outbreak. We'd like to see better remediation and better detection and response. It's pretty good at capturing things, but it doesn't stop everything, so better machine learning would be helpful.They should work on making the virus definition file lighter.Need to improved orchestration for broken clients fixes.They're just starting to get into this now, but I think they can do better - they're just starting out with I think is called the SEP Cloud Console. It has more limited functionality. It will be good once we can run SEP from the cloud. That would be good.

​It needs a consolidated manager as there are too many parts to currently manage it.​

Pricing and Cost Advice
It is the better product, even if it is a little on the higher side.Licensing is per user. Therefore, it makes it easy to do licensing.What we have paid for this product is good value for the work and the services that they are providing to us.Regarding the licensing, it was important negotiate a long contract to get a more attractive price, including advanced support in case of crisis.I’d say SEP deserves the money.
