Norton Small Business

For a small or mid-sized firm with distributed computing requirements like ours, Symantec Norton is well suited. It is an ideal solution as it is easy-to-use and the pricing is the right fit on account of geographical customisation. Small businesses, especially, realise the value of endpoint protection only when they encounter serious issues, therefore their product becomes well suited for those who may dither because of the lack of clarity and poor pricing structure of other options. However, the most important feature still remains its effectiveness, which makes it the most optimal option at the right price

Palo Alto Networks Traps

Traps is a fantastic tool for malware prevention and works great alongside traditional A/V. Integration with other Palo Alto gear is also very nice, as it can tap into other products/tools for enhanced functionality. Traps is great at quarantining malicious code to a single source and stops the spread of malware that uses network shares to spread very well.

Alternatives Considered

Norton Small Business

We did not actively consider any other software. Overall we did do a basic understanding of a pricing & features and found that the offerings from Symantec were better than others even prima facie. At the current time for an organisation such as ours we do not believe that there is any other option worth active consideration

Palo Alto Networks Traps

Traps and its integration with central management tools by Palo Alto and wildfire was a better fit for our environment. Others provided similar levels of protection but in some cases did not live up to expectations as traps did. Palo Alto also worked with us to better Traps, its management tool, and deployment issues. Other vendors were not as forthcoming with support

Return on Investment

Norton Small Business

  • Data Protection is ensured which ensures positive focus from all team members on their work which certain results in improved productivity at the individual level of 2-4% that consequently improves organisational productivity.
  • Our cost of external inputs for data security issues is NIL therefore obviously reducing the bottomline by 1-2% which would be the average cost incurred by organisations of our size in general. Of course an event maybe costlier, but I am sticking to averages since we have had no events.
  • Overall, we feel that the cost of security software is also lower on account of optimised pricing by Symantec. While the expense in this segment is a fraction of total IT costs, and therefore tangible savings are also fractional. However, So, since the value of outcomes (lack of security related negative events) is much higher, intangible benefits are even higher.

  • Traps gives us a lot of good insight on what's being run on our endpoints
  • Traps is a great extra layer of security for our end users and minimizes malware outbreaks, which in turn minimizes downtime
