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 main console 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 against it, with KB and vulnerability ID. The endpoint advanced malware detection is complex to configure and local admins keep them disabled or not well configured most of the time. 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 »
