ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus

Patch Manager is well suited for users that work remotely or away from main sites for long periods of time. It provides the patch administrator access to update the machine without requiring users to come to the head office.

Symantec Endpoint Security

Because it can be installed/updated via a group policy/patch management software, I think that Symantec Endpoint Protection is best suited for very large environments that need an added layer of protection from malicious attacks. It's probably not well suited for smaller environments that may be using older machines as it seems to take up a lot of resources to scan and run.

Pros

ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus

  • Easy to Use UI.
  • Easy to understand dashboards.
  • Quick and effective support.
David Nada | 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

ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus

  • More customization.
  • The same set of software should be available on both on-prem and cloud.
  • Better reporting features.
David Nada | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus

Patch Manager Plus does the most basic job of monitoring machines, deploying packages silently, and keeping machines up to date.
David Nada | TrustRadius Reviewer

Symantec Endpoint Security

Symantec Endpoint Protection stacks up to the competition very nicely. It does have all the features of the competition except the licensing model is a lot cheaper than the other products. For our large scale environment, it allowed us to effectively manage a high volume of machines for a decent cost. It also receives timely updates and the company has a solid reputation for customer service and satisfaction.

Return on Investment

ManageEngine Patch Manager Plus

  • Increased insight into applications installed on end user machines.
  • Less time spending creating packages in SCCM.
  • End users do not have to make time to travel to the head office or a corporate network for updates.
David Nada | TrustRadius Reviewer

Symantec Endpoint Security

  • The objective of Symantec Endpoint Protection is to provide protection from viruses and Symantec has done just that.
  • It is definitely a positive ROI. Since implementation, we have had zero infected machines. Symantec is worth every dollar spent.
  • It is very hard to find an Antivirus software that can protect a machine while using very little resources and having very little impact on the end users. Symantec does all of these very good.
