Good centralized console, but it needs to be more flexible in terms of deployment

What is our primary use case?

This product makes up part of our security solution that we offer to customers for use in data centers and remote sites. As many people are now working from home, they use this solution so that they can work remotely to their data centers and still keep operations centralized. They need to work flexibly, not only from a geolocation point of view but geographically.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the centralized console, which can handle different products that we have."
  • "They need to develop a more flexible product that can be scaled such that it fits well into a small business or a bigger, enterprise-level solution."

What other advice do I have?

The suitability of Symantec Data Center Security depends on the requirements and it is important to understand them in advance. If you are fine with the traditional way of detecting threats then this is a good solution. If not, then I would suggest using newer technology. I would rate this solution a five out of ten.
