It's a nice product. I think Symantec should work more precisely on minimizing database size and the live update size. view full review »

Senior Technical Consultant (SE and Strategic Project Manager) - Email Fraud Protection - LATAM at a tech vendor with 201-500 employees
Reports: It would be nice to have customized reports integrated on the mainconsole with no additional DB server or BI server. Vulnerabilities: A vulnerability scan integrated with SEP would be important for the admin to understand the risk level they are facing and how to protect themselves... Reports: SEP has built-in, on the console, many pre-configured reports however, in a complexed environment, customers may would need customized reports other than already provided by the console. In this case, it´s possible to achieve them using an external data base and server. It would be nice have a possibility to create customized reports without an external server and data base, on the same SEP Admin console. Vulnerabilities: It would be nice have on the SEP Admin console a feature to measure the environment risk level using an OS and application vulnerability scan where the administrator can analyze the risk, mitigate the main risks, prioritized them and, over a Path Manager, correct them if possible. view full review »

The management of the server is a bit complex. It takes time get used to it. When upgrading the software for clients, you have to link the upgrade package to every sub-folder, and there is no inheritance. view full review »

As an Endpoint Security Expert, I have worked on multiple anti-virus solutions of different vendors. They are turning the table in market. There are many ways in which I see Symantec overshadowing the same in near future. The deployment mechanism needs work. There are various vendors who have been coming up with endpoint agents as small as size of a delta definition. There are various options and tweaking which can help save the administrators a lot of effort, such as: * Multi-domain policy options for exceptions and global blocks * Deploying intelligent updates remotely * Deleting AV cache remotely * More versatile dashboard with more custom add-ons to monitor infra. I see Symantec as being late in releasing certified definitions for the same day while other vendors are lightning fast. I would like to see a GUP monitoring tool being supported. view full review »

I would like to see improvements in the anti-virus and the device control features. Anti-Virus: I would like to see Symantec improve the ant-virus to stop and detect Ransomware and email attachments. Symantec is weak with Ransomware. I would like to see the anti-spam for Outlook improve the scanning and blocking of attachments. Device control: I would like to see an improvement in the USB control, because it sometimes creates a conflict with USB printers. view full review »

Interaction with the product admin needs work. If Symantec could add a new feature which would allow the user to be nice every time the new definitions are/are not in place. Also, for machines which have connectivity problems and cannot download the new definitions for several days, I would suggest that they include them int one report and alert the system admin about them. view full review »
