Symantec Endpoint Detection and Response Room for Improvement

Reporting is a major issue, as it is not user friendly. It's the biggest challenge we are facing. I have raised this issue multiple times. With virus detection, if one OEM vendor is detecting the virus at 1:10 am, within 24 hours all others will detect it. For example, Symantec will detect the virus, then McAfee will detect it then Trend Micro, all within 24 hours, everyone will have it covered. In the next release, I would like to see the option to customize the report as per our needs, and better reporting in general. View full review »

I think the network forensics feature could be improved. It's not part of SEP, but it's part of the package and I think that could be improved because we need the decryptor. Without that you can't actually decrypt the SSL traffic going in the network. If the solution could be completely software-based, it would be a formidable product. Symantec could include that as an additional feature, it's something that other solutions provide. Secondly, instead of just making it endpoint deception, they could make it network deception as well and that would make it a complete endpoint protection solution. View full review »

I don't see much room for improvement. I am not an analyst for this product. I just manage this product for an analyst. I like the dashboard, it has lots of information like threats and we can see activity on the dashboard. It shows new and unknown threats in the environment. This feature is very good for EDR monitoring and management. View full review »
