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

Pros
I find it is the most reliable solution on the market.It is a stable product.We never expect downtime. There is also great ease of use for my admins.It's a good proxy to control the user's access to the website.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.

Cons
I think the CPU dependence should be enhanced.Sometimes tech support is a bit slow to find a solution.It seems that its not working very well with VMWare.It's not cheap.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.

Recently, we had a malware attack and considered looking at other cloud solutions because of this breach.I am expecting an Apple featured IDLP solution with OfficeScan, where we have only IDLP. Also, the ADR functionality in our Office Scan solution would be a nice addition. Genrally, the ADR solutions are the only failed ends of the solutions we have found with Trend Micro.​It needs a consolidated manager as there are too many parts to currently manage it.​

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.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.
