What is most valuable?

It helps us put antivirus solutions in place and prevent malware from getting to our machines. It's a pretty clear-cut solution.

What needs improvement?

Semantic is out there doing the work, identifying viruses and malware that come out weekly. That's the real-world landscape and they're pushing that stuff out as quickly as they can. But I can only patch monthly. I don't know what the… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

The government requirement was to be using McAfee, and we're using Semantic and we just pushed back on it. I told them I have a solution, it's deployed, it's working. It's 100 percent. Why is the government specifying a solution for one… more»

What other advice do I have?

If you make the investment in tech, in updated hardware and software, there are other tools - here we are at RSA 2019, those tools are all over the place. There are other tools that are not single-point solutions. You can solve a whole lot… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

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… more»

What is most valuable?

The management console: Being able to quickly control who sees what, ensures we are on the latest version, and up-to-date. We now have visibility on our metrics.

How has it helped my organization?

It ensures that we are kept on the same page of the latest version, as updates are being rolled out. We can automate the solution. It is very simple, and we can handle… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like them to have integration with a wider range of non-Symantec products. It is the industry standard product with the common set of features, but we would like… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It can be expensive. However, if you plan to scale or are at a large enterprise company, this product could be what you need.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I don't know what they had before because I am new to this role.

What other advice do I have?

Give it a serious look. Our security team is more on the immature side rather than the mature side, as we build thing out. This automated solution puts us at the base… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

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… more»

What is most valuable?

The encryption feature is very good. As we're just in the testing phase, we haven't explored many other features in-depth yet.

What needs improvement?

When we started at that time, the engineers configured the solution only for our roaming users. Now, we have to reconfigure to SQL because we have almost 10,000 clients. We have to do this through SQL because we cannot keep a record of each client. The agent can be improved on the solution. Right now, we have an Endpoint Protection agent as well as an encryption agent and another for the DLVs and… more»

What other advice do I have?

We're using the on-premises deployment model. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

The precision that it has to identify all my assets.

How has it helped my organization?

It has reduced the number of incidents related to the loss of information.

What needs improvement?

I would like them to improve their support.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing costs yearly are $5000.

What other advice do I have?

Try to look at many vendors. There are a lot of papers about solutions, especially this one. So, it's really nice. I started my security program four years ago, and we now have a mature security… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

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.
