Norton

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

Cons

Norton

  • It uses a lot of RAM which can cause issues in other areas of computer use.
  • If you chose to un-install it can be difficult to get rid of all traces of the program.
  • The initial configuring can be challenging for the average user as the manuals are overwhelming. Better tutorials would be helpful.

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.

Would like a manual or online version that is simple to understand and explains in detail what choices we have and why to make these choices.

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.

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 has helped prevent any private company information including banking and accounting information from being obtained by hackers. This helps prevent attacks on our accounts which would cause huge issues for our company.
  • It helps keep our computers from crashing due to viruses which would halt any operations on that computer and cause extra hours for our I.T. Department to fix.

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.
