Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) Scalability

Cameron Mottus
Principal Consultant - Security at Insentra
From a scalability perspective, in Australia and New Zealand, where I'm using it, it can easily manage any workload that we've got. One of the challenges is people going the opposite way, that is, people trying to deploy Symantec Endpoint Protection - which is an enterprise level product - into a small business of a hundred users. It can introduce a lot of complexity that doesn't have to be there. There are other solutions like SEP.cloud which can make it easier for small businesses to be able to use very similar technologies to Symantec Endpoint Protection. View full review »

For us, scalability is fine, there is no problem, no restriction, other than we cannot go beyond our licenses. If we are extending it, of course we need to pay for it. But it's not like something is restricting or blocking it. The scalability is okay. We have connected more than 1,200 computers and they are working well. We have one staff member who maintains the solution. He is our network security guy and he is also Symantec-certified. We also have second-level support from Symantec. If anything is needed we get support from them. We pay them yearly for that. Right now, we don't have plans to increase our usage of the solution. View full review »

Scalability, of course, is good. They acquire different companies sometimes and they adapt their different technologies. View full review »

IT Manager at Digitalis Reputation
I think it's very scalable, and I think you can manage the implementation as long as it's sort of implemented on the right sort of baseline platform, etc. It makes it pretty easy to scale up and add lots more users and even more servers to the implementation. We do plan to add more clients onto the system in the future. View full review »

The scalability of the product is good to where it has had the effect of increasing the workload by adding more machines, so I should have a good scaled back-up for this supporting both lines. View full review »
Anthony Ndong
Systems Administrator at a pharma/biotech company with 51-200 employees
From my experience, I find scaling this solution is difficult. You have to work your way around it. It takes some time getting used to the admin dashboard before you can make any changes. We have about sixty users in the company. Two of them are administrators and the remaining are end-users. View full review »

Gulab Singh
Solutions Specialist Security at COMPAREX India Pvt. Ltd.
The scalability is okay. I would rate it as a nine out of ten. Users are a bit afraid of the integration with ATP, as it is increasing scan times when downloading up to two to seven seconds. We have around 2500 employee over all the globe. All the endpoints on laptops or desktops are running Symantec Endpoint Protection. Apart from that, we have multiple customers who have deployed the Symantec Endpoint Protection solution. View full review »

Scalability can become difficult in the user area. I think that it's costly to add the new hard disk. It's hard to add it. We have about forty users on the solution right now. View full review »
