Symantec Advanced Threat Protection Room for Improvement

The endpoint protection looks old. Another issue is in the deployment requirement for the ATP single instance. They should work on lowering, for example, the storage requirements which is around one terabyte but only for one ATP instance. The whole product works for more complex infrastructures and is designed to work with more than one instance, so you can imagine the requirements. It's a strange situation where the infrastructure of the consumer or customer is behind some kind of firewall and they have always used some kind of customized proxy. In this situation, the ATP has a very tough time to pass the information to the cloud and back. To fix, it requires a more elaborate and complex configuration for that particular case.

The administration interface needs a lot of improvement. It should be UI-based and simple. They need to improve it. It's not that friendly compared to what we were using at BitDefender before. It's okay but is improving, actually. View full review »

What we want to do is be able to customize some of this on the administrative side. Right now, it is pretty much turnkey. Therefore, it would be nice if we have more customization. We would also like alerting, not to just to the end users, but to the administrators, when something happens. An improvement could be made on the reporting because then it would be easier to collect information and submit it for compliance. View full review »

There are some ā€ˇfeatures that would add value to this product. One of them would be a graphical presentation of threats that the system has encountered. It should be able to collect information if the agent is disabled. It also needs network-based threat protection for shared folders and files. View full review »
