We're just a customer. We don't have a business relationship with the solution. We've been using the latest version of the solution. I'd recommend the solution to other companies. Overall, I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

This solution is ok but they have problems with providing support. It may be related to the sale of the product to another vendor. For now, I would not recommend it. However, perhaps in three or six months, things will improve and I will reconsider. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

The advice I would give to someone who is looking into implementing Symantec Cyber Security Services is that I would recommend the product. I have a strong connection with security work. I have a lot of friends from India, from the UAE, from Canada, from the U.S, and we share information. I recommend this product as nine out of ten based not just on what I have experienced but on what I know from the cyber community. We are conducting a multiple vendor cybersecurity event. We are open to companies who want to introduce their products as well. In Pakistan, Karachi, Slavs, and Lahore, we are working on this. Definitely I'm trying to recommend these security precautions to other users. The hope is to beat the threats of cyberattacks. Many products may do the job, but the important part is to do the job. Overall, I would rate Symantec Cyber Security Services and nine out of ten.

We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd rate the solution five out of ten. We've since moved over to McAfee.

For people who use this solution, it is updated automatically. My advice to anybody who is implementing Cyber Security Services is to consider that alone, this is not a foolproof solution. They also need to install a firewall and some kind of APT (Advanced persistent threat) products. Essentially, it needs to be part of a security bundle. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

All of the components for this solution are good, including email security. The Symantec MAS engine has very limited features. I have been in contact with them many times to ask for enhancements because it is a very limited product. This is a good solution, but in the past six months, I have had a very bad experience with Symantec support. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
