What do you think of Symantec Endpoint Protection?

Valuable Features It is easy to implement and very stable. The AV device control and HIPS are very impressive. Just implement it and it's done.

I think Symantec should work more precisely on minimizing database size and the live update size. • Use of Solution We have been recommending this product to our clients for about five years already. • Deployment Issues No deployment is very simple. • Stability Issues Stability issues are very rare. It's a very stable product. • Scalability Issues We have not encountered any issues with scalability....

How has it helped my organization?

During the company’s transition, we had a memory scraper infiltrate our network, and with the help of Carbon Black, we isolated the outbreak to a few point of sale machines.. We saw a step-by-step account of how the software was introduced... more»

What needs improvement?

It works the way we want and how we want. For one improvement, an easier integration with an AlienVault USM appliance would be good. The directions for Splunk are spot on, but it is difficult to find anything on integration with AlienVault,

The valuable features are the antivirus, the firewall, the network blocker, and application and device control.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps me with the security policies that I make. I can change policies quickly and easily. Also, it stopped ransomware that other vendors could not catch.

I would like to see improvements in the device control features, which are limited. I can block devices by the policy in the device control such as usb and cd but i can block devices like sound that not supported by Kaspersky I would see... more»
