I think Symantec Endpoint Protection provides very good protection from all kind of threats. Due to the lean interface, it is sure easy to use. However, set up and start up is time-consuming. It can cause old computers to slow down during start up. Overall, it does perform at the top level as a business-level endpoint protection solution. I feel very safe while working at the office as I've never encountered any issues with this software before. Any kind of spyware or malware is defeated instantly by the help of this up-to-date database.

Pros

Fortra

  • Email data leaks - DLP software must prevent certain actions to work well. Let's say you try to copy and paste an SS # to an email, or upload sensitive data to your personal email account. Guardian Edge can prevent that, and then alert administrators that it happened
  • Unauthorized file copies - Guardian Edge can also prevent users from copying files from a sensitive restricted area to somewhere else where they might be able to more easily exfiltrate it. A good example would be from a company file share to a less secure server or their own home drive
  • Alerting Administrators of suspicious activities - Any time a user uploads a file to an upload service or personal email, it is logged and reported as an event to be reviewed. If it found nothing in scanning the data, it will still notify you that it happened so you can review it yourself to confirm it wasn't a false negative.

  • The process to set up a user account is a real pain. Symantec requires the user answer a bunch of security questions if they need to reset their password, but no one ever remembers the answers to the questions that they selected.
  • Since we use this for remote users who don't always connect to our VPN, when they change their network password it isn't always reflected in Windows and the Symantec Endpoint Encryption (SEE) passwords frequently get out of sync. When the user eventually does connect to the VPN, they do sync and really throw the user for a loop in which passwords to use.
  • We found a huge problem with SSDs where an encrypted drive operated twice as slow as a mechanical drive. I believe this was addressed in a later release.

      DG is the only DLP platform I've used at my current employer. I used it at my previous employer as well, and we ended up abandoning future deployments of it due to many problems caused by it, especially with web browsers. This was in 2015, rather than the 2018 version I used with my current employer, but I feel it still warrants mentioning. DG works great...when it works. When it doesn't, it's a disaster.

      We needed a tool to manage BitLocker and FileVault and this product does both. Also, we needed a product to manage our self-encrypting drives (OPAL drives) and things work great
