Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) Previous Solutions

Cameron Mottus
Principal Consultant - Security at Insentra
Based on the roles that I've had, I've been working as a Symantec consultant for 10 years, and so I've just been working with SEP. There are people who, as their consulting function would be an endpoint protection guy, would do McAfee, SEP, Trend, etc., whereas my strategy was different. I basically covered off all Symantec technologies. My intent was to be able to be specialized across the entire range of security technologies. I've only worked with SEP. View full review »

We also use McAfee because of the scalability. It had the issue that it consumed too many resources and for vulnerabilities, sometimes there are some direct varieties you cannot delete. View full review »

We didn't have anything at this scale. We just used Kaspersky as an antivirus, but we are not using it now, we are using Symantec Endpoint Protection which covers everything. Symantec is better, it covers more requirements. Antivirus solutions only cover some basics, but Endpoint Protection is the next generation. It covers antivirus, spamware, ransomware; all this is covered through Endpoint Protection. We selected Symantec because it is at the top of industry reviews. We also know that globally, Symantec spends a lot of money for R&D and we believe it will remain up to the mark. We also use Symantec Email Security which improves our productivity and protects our valuable data. Email Isolation is the only feature which the others don't have. When we use it we find that we are free from phishing mail, etc. View full review »

My understanding is that we were running Kaspersky before this solution was implemented, but I was not here at the time. View full review »

We did have a previous solution. They are all equal in giving the definitions on a timely routine, but the bandwidth extent was an issue for me. This is why we changed to Symantec. View full review »

Nuno Martins
Partner at a consultancy with 1-10 employees
Previously we were using McAfee, and we switched to Symantec for ease of operation and stability. This solution has much better performance than McAfee. My most important criteria when selecting a vendor are price and performance. View full review »
Lynne Caputi
Systems Engineer at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
We are switching because we don't feel that Symantec as a company is keeping up with next-generation trends. They just seem to be resting on their accomplishments too much and don't seem like they are progressive. The most important criteria when selecting a vendor are a highly rated, good product - that factor is at the top of the list. Also, good functionality, good support, good price, and good margins, since we resell. View full review »
