    Nmap

    If you're a sysadmin, or anyone who's had to deploy network services, you've almost certainly had to use Nmap at some point or other. Need to see what devices are on your LAN? Nmap can tell you that. Want to check which ports your web server has open to the internet? Nmap is your friend.
    Nmap is a powerful command-line tool and has many options that require some reading of documentation to get the best out of (although generally straightforward). If the thought of working at the command-line scares you (presumably not if you're reading this review), then you may want a much simpler tool, or at least check out Zenmap GUI.

    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

    Nmap

    • NMap provides a very fast and a very thorough network "sweep" that allows you to quickly map out exactly what's on your network.
    • NMap is highly configurable. The "canned" choices are very good in most instances, but using various switches and options, you can create a very specific scan and get exactly the results you're looking for.
    • NMap is easy to use. Even a new administrator will be able to use the graphical version (Zenmap) with efficiency right away.

    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

    Nmap

    • exporting, There's a serious lack of ability to export the information in a readable format to present to VPs and such. I always find myself doing a lot of data massaging to get it in a pretty format
    • some scans can trigger sensitive IDS/IPS
    • SYN scans can be particularly aggressive and cause problems on remote systems.
    Mike Nostrom | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

    • 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.

    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

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

    There is a very large support community and a robust selection of add-ons and scripts. Once you get the use down this is one of the most powerful tools and you can find anything you are looking for as far as examples on the web. While not having official support its not lacking by any means.

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

    Alternatives Considered

    Nmap

    Alternatives to Nmap (other IP scanners) are often much more limited in what they can do; They often only allow you to scan a specific subset of ports or a limited number of IP addresses in one command. Nmap is unrestricted in that regard. What makes Nmap stand out above the rest, is the complete network analysis package you get with it. It allows IP scanner, network deep-dives, hardware analysis, vulnerability analysis, encryption detailing, and so much more, in one free application

    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

    Nmap

    • Positive return as it's open-source (free) on all OS's.
    • If a person is not used of the command line there are a ton of front ends that make it point-and-click so the learning curve is good. That cuts down on time and manpower.

    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.
