    For a stand-alone business this should do the trick, but if using across multiple clients (multi-tenancy not an option). Default settings within the program will cause performance issues if not tweaked, meaning someone with networking experience may be necessary. Not ideal for MSP's unless they only have a few clients, as the manageability must be done within "the walls" of each company.

    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

    Pros

    Norton

    • Norton works quite quickly and is efficient enough to detect threats
    • It is very easy and simple to install and is without any complications and irrelevant inquiries.
    • Norton is available at a very reasonable price in the market and is not heavy on pocket.
    John Danniel | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Panda Security for Desktops

    • Constant scanning of the entire computer.
    • Does not affect the performance of the device.
    • A lot of features to protect the computers in different layers.
    • A control panel where you can manage all the features in a simple way.
    • High level of effectiveness when detecting threats, attacks, malware, etc.
    Winston Mendes | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Norton

    • Poor performance against Spyware and other threats despite claiming to act against them (recognizes very few and eliminates less) It is limited to viruses.
    • Regular blocking of incoming scripts (in front of other antivirus)
    • Little or almost no compatibility with the Windows XP Firewall, but they are involved.
    SERGIO CHAVES | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.

    Depends on pricing and company size. In case of growing will probably switch to Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud or Symantec Endpoint Protection.

    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

    Using a hosted model, we know we are always getting the best core cybersecurity, but for the endpoints, we don't need something as complex as FireEye, and we wanted more than Lookout was able to provide. Lookout was terrific, and it came already installed with many of our phones. But we chose to proactively seek out a cyber solution that mapped to our policies.
    Jackie Bassett | 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

    • It allows our tech staff to manage all our devices from one online account.
    • It has allowed us to get rid of issues with malware in both detection and removal with minimal lag.
    • It protects our customers while making their online purchases and helps them to know that we are a safe company to do business with.

    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.
