Symantec Advanced Threat Protection Valuable Features

Their integrations are pretty good as are their Sandbox solutions, their proxies, and their LTAs with API or ICAP protocols. Symantec has good experience in the field. They're good at picking up on trends. They have one of the biggest background cloud networking internet solutions due to the fact that they have a lot of customers everywhere in the world and they have a lot of data. The incident management on the solution is very good. You get a lot of detailed information about an incident. You also get a lot of documentation in connection with the CVI or integration. If you have to integrate it with CM solutions, you can correlate data more with other solutions, for example, with firewalls. The result of this integration is that it gives you much more information. There are customers where the engineers have enough time to investigate all of the incidents. However, you can also collect this data in a CM and then in an incident and response management solution. It ends up saving a lot of time View full review »

They manage to solve detection quite nicely. There is some rather elaborate detection compared to other providers. Most of the providers of the security software offer a threat graph, for example, so you can see how the menace propagates throughout the infrastructure. Symantec also provides a small set of information linked to each of the attacked computers. It provides a bunch of information that I find useful. View full review »

Overall, the product supports everything already. Feature-wise, because it has something like email protection, monitoring detection, network intrusion detection, it has advanced threat protection. View full review »

It works all the time. We do test against it by doing penetration testing and other things. It triggers and block these attacks. We think it holds up, but there's always zero-days. View full review »
