Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) Stability

Cameron Mottus
Principal Consultant - Security at Insentra
The big issues around stability were fixed back around 2010 or so. When the original SEP client was created, there were some challenges with the interoperability of the different components, because they took a number of different agents, put them into one agent, and then they broke things. With SEP 12 and forward, that all runs really well now. View full review »

I have been using Symantec since 2007. I didn't have any issues regarding even the updates and the migration to the new version. I didn't have any problems, but with the other vendors, I found a lot of problems. On Windows, this is very fine and perfect, but for the Linux it needs improvement. Whenever I install it on Linux, I found a lot of problems. Even on the Mac as well. Kaspersky has Android support as well, but in Symantec, they still don't have support for Android. You should have Mac and Android device support too. The Endpoint solution should have support for all types of devices. Symantec has only Windows support (which is the very best), but for the Mac, I found some errors. It should improve Mac and Android support like Windows device support. The protection of Windows level support is very tight and strong. View full review »

It's not very stable I don't think. I'll didn't have any problems when it did not work, or episodes of crashing or anything but yeah, it's not very stable. We don't do daily scans, we do weekly scans but it is used daily and obviously, it's got a real-time scan so it's in constant use. View full review »

This solution is very stable. It is "install and forget". Once you install the solution on the server, it is very quick when it comes to updating the clients. Specifically, it sends packages really quickly to all of the clients to ensure that they have the latest build. It is transparent and quick. This solution is constantly in use. It runs 24/7.

I've had no issues with stability in the ten years that I have been using it. This product is being pushed the maximum, and we are using it every day. It is stable, and once you put in the policies, it does what it is supposed to do. View full review »

Symantec Endpoint Protection is stable product, if you compare it other vendors, like McAfee or Trend Micro. McAfee was acquired by the Intel, who is very not strong in security patterns. Our German team manages the maintenance. View full review »

It has been around a while but I don't think it has successfully made the jump into next-generation features, like a lot of its competitors have. View full review »

I've seen way too many outages and "maintenance" events in the last year on the new platform to consider it stable. View full review »
