    If a company is in
    need of an anti-virus that would help them in saving their data against all
    kinds of virus attacks then Avast is just a witty option. The utilization of
    cyberspace is inevitable and it is necessary to make it secure and Avast is a
    good option. There can be multiple powerful antivirus tools but the price of it
    is highly suitable and is the cheapest among its competitors.

    Symantec Endpoint Security is a well-rounded product that provides a significant amount of functionality and covers many of our endpoint needs without needing to resort to multiple vendors that might clash in unpredictable ways when ultimately deployed to the endpoints in our estate. The default policies are adequate and tuning these requires some time as with all similar EDR products but the product is flexible enough to allow very granular whitelisting/blacklisting which is great. Low resource requirements are also fantastic and we've not had many complaints from developers who were getting slowed down when compiling complex code with other previous solutions.

    • The virus and spyware protection has worked well for us, catching several things and quarantining the items or cleaning them.
    • The virus definitions very rarely fail to update for the users, so I feel confident that my client machines are kept up to date.
    • I like the report I get daily telling me about threats found and action taken without having to login to the console to look it up myself.

    Cons

    Avast Software

    • Alerts - these are handy for sure, but some alerts, when turned on, can flood your Inbox. I'd like to see a more granular approach that sets limits on how many times an alert will be delivered.
    • Fingerprint access on the mobile app would be awesome.
    • Aside from that, some of the menu paths are not straightforward. Like the install client creation can only be done from the dashboard (to my knowledge) when it should be done from the policy and/or device pages. Make the interface a little more intuitive.

    Broadcom

    • The system should have a better ability to auto repair, if an item is malfunctioning it should auto reinstall.
    • The cloud platform and the server do not talk well to each other and it would be great to get the same data on both platforms, this may be due to version though.
    • It seems the whitelisting on the cloud platform could use some work.

      Symantec Endpoint Protection centralized management console provides easy to follow, clean, and modern HTML5 based interface.

The Symantec Endpoint Protection provides many roles out of the box and presents relevant information based on the user role. Symantec Endpoint Protection can benefit from further scripting/automation interface development.

      We've used it for years and the software is easy to use. The dashboard is easy to read, and you can easily figure out where to go to troubleshoot or deploy software. Symantec is there for emergencies like backup restoration or file retrieval. It's pretty low maintenance. Symantec is there when your IT infrastructure needs it

      Support is completely awful! You can never get anyone to help if you can even find a number to call. The support web portal is a joke and their response time if you're even able to submit a ticket is ridiculously slow.

      Alternatives Considered

      Avast Software

      We once had an experience of using the AVG AntiVirus Business Edition for eight months and we experienced something surprising that it was not effective and active much as the prices were also too low as compared to Avast Business Antivirus. In short, to explain, Avast Business Antivirus is just [an] amazing antivirus and is working well enough with our organization to protect our systems. From our side, Avast is the best antivirus platform to experience by any organization.

      Symantec Endpoint Security offers very similar features to the above products, they all do the same thing in terms of protecting your endpoints against cybersecurity threats. Installation wise the products all install from a central management system and report back to this for central reporting. Ultimately we choose Symantec as the reseller was able to offer additional incentives which made their pricing very competitive.
