Likelihood to Recommend

McAfee Complete Data Protection

I would recommend this program ideally more for larger organizations, but that is not to say you couldn't use it for personal use. I think it's ideal for an organization because of all the features it has in one program. It provides all the protection you'd need in a corporation, especially for ones dealing with sensitive company/personal/financial information. Administrators are also able to set specific settings for users so the company can tailor security restrictions as needed

Symantec DLP

Works well for our very limited use cases with over 50K endpoints. Has the proper information and UI required for investigating violations and resolving the cases. Our dictionary of terms to look for in content changes often, but isn't really that big. The system handles us changing the list quite often, but I can't speak to how well the system would work with a very large list - you will want to POC that use case before a purchase.

Cons

McAfee Complete Data Protection

  • I wish it would give better reasoning why some sites or downloads are blocked, this can be frustrating to have happen if what you are trying to download is from someone/thing you know is a trusted source
  • Sometimes the program messes up the formatting of some webpages I'm trying to visit
  • Drive encryption can be a bit slow to load at times

Symantec DLP

  • Sometimes flags files that are not part of the scope.
  • It scares users when items are flagged.

Symantec DLP 7.0
Based on 2 answers
Symantec DLP works good for our very simple and low complexity use cases and I would highly recommend it for them. However, I can't speak to highly complex or advanced use cases that might arise in certain industries like finance. I would recommend that if you are seeking an Enterprise DLP solution that you absolutely must explore this product as one of the leaders in the space - not doing so would be negligent in my opinion.

Symantec DLP is the best. Put it in a head to head competition and it will win. However it can be a bit more expensive than other products so don't compare on price, compare on quality of product.
