    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

    Panda Security for Desktops

    Panda is easy to use and doesn't take a ton of system resources, and is easy to implement. It is effective when tested or compared to other products. It doesn't burden the user with excessive notifications. Simple as it should be. Clients have been happy with its performance and haven't had reports of performance issues. This is a must as a system that cripples the machine is of significantly less value

    Panda Security for Desktops

    • Panda Security is not the best at some types of malware scans but that can be an issue with other similar products as well.
    • The configuration and setup functions could be more detailed and expanded for advanced users.
    • Updates can sometimes be infrequent.

    Panda Security for Desktops

    Panda Security for Desktops 10.0
    Based on 2 answers
    I gave it a 10 because I compare it to air conditioning. I need it to work every day, 24/7. I need it to be reliable and not something that requires a ton of interaction from staff to make sure it works every day. In addition, I should be able to run other things at my house when the AC is on. Panda fits that description.

    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
    Prasar Sharma | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Panda Security for Desktops

    Over the years we have tried different software to provide protection but we have not managed to obtain the best results because their features have not been updated or do not fully support against very advanced attacks. One example is Avira, which is limited in that it is practically only useful for Windows, while Panda is usually available for different devices as well as is more prepared for any type of attack that we can cross today.

    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.

    Panda Security for Desktops

    • It has helped me on multiple occasions to eliminate infections from my PC. I have avoided having to reinstall the operating system or format my system and lose some important files.
