I used this solution to protect my workstation from malware and other threats such as viruses and worms. It is very useful.

Our customers are using this solution to protect their laptops, files, and email attachments. The typical requirements are to encrypt the whole hard disk, shared folders, or a network storage area. It is also used to deploy email encryption for some outgoing emails. We have been deploying all the versions that are available for our customers, and we are updating our knowledge year after year. We are deploying this solution on the cloud and on-premises depending on a customer's requirements. We have a few customers who are using on-premise implementations. A few customers have hybrid environments, and a few have decided to go straight to the cloud.

We use it on laptops and desktops. We use it for email, file and folder, and command-line encryption depending upon the customer's needs. We are a service provider for Symantec products. We also use it in our company. We have around 50 to 60 users.

We are currently working with companies in the financial sector which is why we are using this on-premises solution, because their compliance policies do not allow for cloud-based servers. Our clients are using the full encryptions. They're using Symantec Endpoint Encryption to secure their data. If someone loses their laptop, for example, they can wipe their disk and save their data from ending up with a third party.

This solution is used predominately for data protection. We want to protect our data in case it is lost, or if we are replacing or upgrading hardware.

Our primary use is implementing the solution for our clients. We are an official partner for Symantec and implement it for clients but we are also using that same solution. Most of the clients are on-premises installations although we do have some clients using cloud and hybrid-cloud deployments. So between our clients and their usage, we have experience with representatives who are using all the server deployment types. But the vast majority still stay with the on-premises deployment. This is especially true for banking customers who have stricter requirements for regulatory compliance.

We are using three of the product's modules. We are using encryption for messaging, we are using encryption for shared folders and we are using encryption for our hard drives.

We are using this solution to be compliant with CSP. After the cyberattacks, that impacted the Swift platform of the Bangladesh Bank, the Central Bank, and another bank in Africa. They created a custom security program that contains twenty-seven controls. One of those controls is to encrypt the infrastructure in the Swift platform. For the Swift operation, we acquired this solution for the servers and the Endpoints. We can extend it to all of the critical endpoints and the servers, and we can ensure the confidentiality of the data. This is a pilot project, deployed to be tested. After all of the testing is complete, we can cover the infrastructure.

The primary use case is just endpoint protection. It is the basis of our whole infrastructure for security staff.
