Symantec Endpoint Encryption Other Solutions Considered

Information System Security Manager at a aerospace/defense firm with 10,001+ employees
This solution was chosen for me. I didn't make the decision. Last year at RSA, Malwarebytes had a booth. I was talking to the vendor and he had some very interesting research. I won't go into too much here, but he had a graph on how many threats McAfee misses, how many Symantec misses, and how good Malwarebytes is, of course. He was trying to sell their software. He said Malwarebytes is a stopgap between the two. We could use it as he suggested. The problem with that is that when you have multiple antivirus engines installed on a machine, they identify each other's threats and cancel out each other's work. It doesn't really work that way. But I have to look at the results. We haven't had a malware incident as a result of the Semantic solution that we have on 95 percent of our machines. We actually have McAfee on two machines because they are for a different customer and it was easier to do that. View full review »

I used to work at Symantec, so the team chose the solution based on that. There wasn't a rigorous evaluation process. Though, I am sure that we also looked at Palo Alto Networks. View full review »

We had three vendors on our shortlist. I choose this vendor because it was a leader at that time, and it still is the leader right now. I am happy with it and not looking to change vendors. View full review »
