Symantec Data Loss Prevention Other Advice

Shayanthan Karunaharan

My advice is that the DLP solution is the emerging platform in the world at the moment. First, we had to get some idea on how data works at the customers: data in motion, data in rest, data traveling, etc. Typically data travels through emails from the endpoint by USB, email and CD writing it to a CD or copying it to a network share or from a network share. Those are what you need to know before starting the day of implementation. How this data travels inside and outside the environment. I would rate this solution as nine out of ten, because they are a leader, competing with some other vendors, providing updates, releasing new versions, and providing technical improvements on their side. I would say it's fine. View full review »

We have around 1,500 users in HR, admin, the finance department, and IT. For maintenance of the solution we have two people. It's covering all users at the moment so there are no plans to increase usage. I rate the solution at eight out of ten. It is fulfilling our requirements. View full review »

Manager Cyber Forensic at a financial services firm with 51-200 employees
Technical support is very poor. I am frustrated and irritated by the issue, so it is difficult to offer advice or recommend this solution. If someone would ask me if they should implement this solution, I would have to say no, only because of the support issue. It is a very big concern. I would rate this solution a four out of ten.

We're just a customer. We aren't a Symantec partner or reseller. We recently upgraded to version 15. We like the solution. Currently, there are no plans to switch to a different product. I'd recommend the solution to other organizations. I'd rate it eight out of ten overall. View full review »

I would rate it an eight out of ten. Not a ten because there are certain things that need improvement. My advice to someone considering this solution is to look at your needs. Try a few products because there are some features that exist in other solutions like Forcepoint that do not exist in Palo Alto. You should choose a solution based on your needs. I would recommend Symantec depending on the needs of the clients, but for me, Symantec is the best on the market. View full review »
