This solution has been installed within a LAN/WAN topology, with slightly more than 300 clients, give or take.

I have used various types of anti-virus software but I have fallen in love Symantec Endpoint Protection as it eliminated all the problems I used to have. At the University of Zimbabwe, it is now the only antivirus that is used by both students and staff after careful consideration by the University IT department. It provides end-to-end protection for computers and laptops.

We use this solution for encrypting data across networks, monitoring and checking traffic, and antivirus. It is an on-premises deployment.

I am working as an endpoint security consultant. I'm not only working on Symantec. I also work with Kaspersky, McAfee, and all other vendors. I found Symantec is the best.

SEP was used mainly to protect desktops/laptops of students, faculty, and staff (about thirty-five hundred in total). Symantec was also used as messaging Gateway for email filtering (moved to Office 365).

We are a partner or distributor of Symantec Endpoint Protection. We use this solution for antivirus and cyber threat protection. Internally, we are using it to ensure that we receive security against all known attack vectors with efficacy, cyber defense at scale, high-performance client, and on-premises management architecture.

It's an antivirus solution. We need something centralized because we have hundreds of desktops and laptops. We have taken this solution to manage antivirus, security, etc., all together.

A couple of our customers have deployed and are using Symantec Endpoint Protection. I joined COMPAREX eight months back, and they have been using Symantec Endpoint Protection for two and a half years.

We are a solution provider for end customers like Telco, banks, etc. We are also a Symantec partner and reseller. Not only do we use it but we also position this solution for customers. We have a telecom company that was using Kaspersky and they still had some vulnerabilities and attacks and we discussed with them and succeeded in presenting this solution. The one we proposed was Symantec Protection Suite, SPS Enterprise Edition, for about more 1,100 endpoints, exactly 1,100 users. We also implemented the mailer for Symantec Messaging Gateway for spam protection. Until now they used the solution and they are very satisfied with it. We started with SEP 12.1 but later they upgraded to SEP 14.

We work with Symantec DLP and Endpoint Protection as our main security solutions. We have deployed Endpoint Protection for a few customers and for our own organization as a test: Endpoint Protection, Email Security, and DLP. We are a partner but we are a user as well. Our company has more than 100 employees and our group, which is made up of different companies, has more than 400 employees, and we are planning to deploy it for our group. Our company is the system integrator, while other companies within the group are service providers or different types of service integrators for areas like fintech.

Standard use case: firewall, malware, app/device control, reporting of compliance, etc. We use other features too.

* Primary endpoint protection for our office. It was replaced with my MSP's contracted solution, but that's being replaced by our own solution.

The primary key is because it doesn't impact much in the performance of the endpoint.

My primary use case for this is protecting the end user against cyber attacks. It is a simple product that is easily implemented on all of our hosts and servers. It is especially helpful on our exchange server.

It's a good proxy to control the user's access to the website.

Primary usage is on endpoints, desktops, clients, and servers, and it's working okay.
