A necessary security step for uncertain files that come from partners or customers

Pros and Cons

  • "With the heightened security around phishing, identity theft, and malware, this is a good product."
  • "It would be helpful for me if this solution works on our cloud backup data."

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to do periodic antivirus checks on our machines since we deal with a lot of different applications.

How has it helped my organization?

Right now we are really focusing on security. Not only phishing but with files, so it has really heightened our awareness in terms of what kinds of files we accept, and making sure that they're all clean when we pass them to each other.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ability to do ad-hoc checks on our software. Every time we load a new software product, we do a virus check using this product.

I also like the fact that it checks files. If we get a ZIP file or some other file type that is unknown, it helps us with doing the virus scan.

What needs improvement?

It would be helpful for me if this solution works on our cloud backup data.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We give this product to new employees. It's very scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not used the technical support for this product.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup for this solution was straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

Norton definitely has a name out there. It's always been a main product that is robust and strong in this area. With the heightened security around phishing, identity theft, and malware, this is a good product. I would certainly shop around, and make sure that you're getting the best product, but, for us, it's been very solid.

For me, this solution does everything that I need it to do. It scans my email or suspicious files before I download them. We receive a lot of different files because there are a lot of file transfers between our partners and customers. We don't know if they've scanned them, so we have to make sure, and it's very good at that. It does the job.

I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

Uses resources efficiently during scanning

Pros and Cons

  • "It does not take many resources during scanning."

    What is our primary use case?

    It's for protecting laptop computers. So far we have no issues. It's good.

    How has it helped my organization?

    It's easily available off the shelf, whereas for Symantec products you have to go through a vendor. It's not easily available.

    What is most valuable?

    It does not take many resources during scanning.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    More than five years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    The stability is good. We haven't experienced any downtime.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    The scalability is good.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    We have not needed to use technical support. That's how good it is so far.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    We tried a few: Kaspersky, Trend Micro, we used McAfee, we used Norton. We tried them all on our entire fleet of computers. So we were able to see which was most suitable for us. We realized that in terms of ease of use, in terms of resource consumption, Norton is something that is acceptable to us.

    For me, the important criterion when selecting a vendor is reputation.

    How was the initial setup?

    I was involved in the initial setup, and it's not complex at all. It's not complex to manage thereafter, as well. It's very straightforward and easy.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    If they could come down in price that would be good. It's not exactly the lowest.

    What other advice do I have?

    Look at reviews from reputable sources before you decide which endpoint protection solution to procure.

    I rate Norton Security Premium at eight out of 10 for the good reviews, for the reputation, and for the way the resources are being consumed during a scan. And because it's easily available off the shelf.
