Likelihood to Recommend

Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365)

If a colleague asked me if I preferred Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace, I'd say Google Workspace. However, it depends on the colleague's future use of the product for which I'd recommend. If it's a smaller business with younger employees, I'd recommend Google. If it's a larger company with a wide age range of employees, I'd recommend Microsoft 365.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

It is valuable software for when it comes to a large or medium organization, since it helps to protect the endpoints, but as the number of servers increases its value increases. However, it is important to keep in mind that when it comes to low end devices, its protection can affect their performance. This is because it is not a software with a very light agent.

Pros

Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365)

  • Managing user mailboxes and policies is very simple in the Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) environment.
  • Accessibility from anywhere is extremely useful since all anyone needs is an internet connection.
  • The account security features are easy to set up and they work very well. We have MFA turned on for everyone, and that gives a great peace of mind that accounts are that much more difficult to hack.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

  • USB Control. Only allow certain usb devices to be connected and allow on certain users to have the ability to us usb keys.
  • Easy of Administration, configuration and installation.
  • Support is excellent. When I've called in for help they go above and beyond to help you resolve you issue or answer your questions on a certain configuration.

Cons

Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365)

  • In Teams, it is currently not possible to change the channel's privacy from private to public. This is definitely a big challenge for us to work around.
  • In Teams, the video settings such as background photo can only be changed while inside a meeting. This does not make much sense since you need to have a suitable video set up before entering a meeting.

  • The interface can be a little wonky at times and can slow to a crawl when trying to do too much.
  • Having to manually (or use another tool such as Symantec Enterprise Manager) to upgrade the endpoints is not the best way to implement clients.
  • Pricing for purchase and upgrade is a little strange and takes more thinking than it should.
  • They were recently purchased by Broadcomm and the new regime has been making some changes that appear to be more for larger customers.

I give it this rating because I am satisfied overall with what Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) can do and the basic functions it offers. It’s far from perfect and a bit costly, but overall, it is hard to live without. We use it on a daily basis and have come to rely on it very much all of the time.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection has done a sufficient job at identifying true positives. However, the UI could be improved and the amount of false positives is a little too frequent for my liking

Microsoft Office 365 has great usability. No need for high expertise to start using its tools. If you want to develop something more complex then I advice previous study, like VBA coding.

There is a small learning curve, but compared to other AV products it is fairly simple and easy to catch onto

Over the past 8 years of using Microsoft 365, I have noticed that they change vendors often. This always leads to a poor experience in the beginning, then levels out after some time for the company to get things worked out. As a customer, it is really frustrating because I don't have time when something isn't working to have them "look into my issue" and get back with me. They have even closed a ticket I specifically told them to keep open. Your applications are only as good as the support.

No, besides to review documentation prior to beginning. That is what helped lead to a smooth implementation

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365)

I haven't used many alternatives for Microsoft 365 [(formerly Office 365)], as Microsoft still seems to be the standard for office applications. I have used Apple's iWork applications (Pages, Numbers, Keynote), which I like quite a bit better for use on the Mac. They are better design-wise, but they don't offer an option for Windows users and don't really compare as far as a complete packaged office solution like Microsoft 365.

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection is one of the best compared to other current vendors & competitors. Symantec Advanced Threat Protection has the most complete features such as content analysis, network detection & response, web filtering, email detection & response, content analysis, web isolation, & more. It had slow development at the beginning but the acceleration for the last few years was incredible.

Return on Investment

Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365)

  • It has had a positive impact on reducing user frustration, where some individuals don't have the tech skills to use more advanced pieces of software - everyone can easily get the job done with the basic apps in Microsoft 365
  • It had a positive impact on increasing employee efficiency so people can quickly finish small tasks like editing word documents much more easily than by uploading documents to Google Docs and editing them from there (i.e. fewer steps need to be taken since you don't have to upload docs to complete simple tasks)
  • It had a negative impact on cost - we want to use just a single app on almost all machines, but had to buy the packaged licenses
Ryan McGarry | TrustRadius Reviewer

Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

  • We haven't ever suffered from a serious security compromise, and I owe that to our Symantec AV.
  • Once installed and set up, it's difficult to pull it out of the environment and try something else, so it has a way of keeping itself stable.
  • Some customers have a hard time paying the price because they don't "see" it do anything, and wonder what they are paying for.
