Pros

Check Point Harmony Endpoint

  • Identifies ransomware
  • Low resource usage
  • Self remediation
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Symantec Endpoint Security

  • 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

Check Point Harmony Endpoint

  • The prompts for one time logins are rather lengthy and it takes around five minutes to go through all of the authentication required. I believe this could be improved upon.

Symantec Endpoint Security

  • Removing dead clients from the console. This is nearly impossible to do, and makes keeping the console clean a very difficult task.
  • Poorly tested versions are sometimes released that cause serious issues for users. This ranges from browsers malfunctioning to BSOD errors.
  • Malware detection is good but not great. We are not confident in SEP by itself to neutralize malware threats. It's detection rate just isn't high enough for next generation and zero day threats.

Best of Breed. Symantec Endpoint Protection beats all other end point products I have used, tested and seen in presentation at this point in time.

Symantec Endpoint Protection centralized management console provides easy to follow, clean, and modern HTML5 based interface. All functionality required to manage Symantec Endpoint Protection is available and presented through this management 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

I've called a few times and the support is great. They help me walk through the issues that I was having and even remotely connected to my server and show me how the fix the issue. I hope the support doesn't change since they were bought by Broadcom.

Use a third party deployment tool and not the deployment option within the SEP Manager itself.

Alternatives Considered

Check Point Harmony Endpoint

I found that Check Point identified more Ransomware attacks than Kaspersky.

Symantec Endpoint Security

Though Avast seems to use less resources than Symantec Endpoint Protection, we felt that Symantec Endpoint Protection offered better protection against zero day exploits and kept up to date far more than Avast. In addition, we felt that the price was affordable for the product. Our end users love Symantec Endpoint Protection!

Return on Investment

Check Point Harmony Endpoint

  • It has enabled us to maintain privacy which has enhanced our highly rated brand standard. While basically it is a team member specific, behind the scenes program that protects systems from being used by unauthorized individuals, it contributes to the overall integrity of the organization which results in increased market share and return on investment for shareholders.
David Hundley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Symantec Endpoint Security

  • SEP has had a very nice ROI in the form of keeping our network safe and clients' machines clean and free from spyware and viruses.
  • The negative downside is that reinstalling the client isn't always an easy method. A lot of times we just have the user reimage their whole machine, which is usually the last resort.
  • Another positive aspect of SEP is that it allows us to identify any problematic machines which might be allowing any malware, spyware or viruses in through any network ports or connections.
We use Symantec Endpoint Environment in a manufacturing and conventional office setting. This is a very large scale operational of over 10,000 users
