Symantec Endpoint Security

If you want you could think of the industry standard for protection as Symantec [Endpoint Security], if you get the appropriate suite you end up with a solid defense against the outside world. It is also appropriately priced costing us about 10k per year for the 450 Licenses we have. If you are actively being attacked by the CIA or FBI I would spend more money though no amount of money will really matter at that point but if you are just going up against your standard dark forces of the outside then I would recommend this for your endpoint security. It is a solid foundation to build your security stack off of.

Trend Micro Worry-Free Services Suite

Trend Micro is well suited solution for SMBs, for companies with less than 100 endpoints or devices to protect. Where there is no internal infrastructure to host endpoint protection platforms and there are not internal IT teams or security focused personnel. Not suitable for businesses with more than 200 devices as you can lose effectiveness on the protection intended to be provided.

Pros

Symantec Endpoint Security

  • The virus and spyware protection has worked well for us, catching several things and quarantining the items or cleaning them.
  • The virus definitions very rarely fail to update for the users, so I feel confident that my client machines are kept up to date.
  • I like the report I get daily telling me about threats found and action taken without having to login to the console to look it up myself.

Trend Micro Worry-Free Services Suite

  • Very granular control settings like URL filter/block and separate policies for servers vs workstations.
  • Password restrictions on exiting and uninstalling the software on the end points.
  • You can force updates and scans at any time from admin console.

Cons

Symantec Endpoint Security

  • Removing dead clients from the console. This is nearly impossible to do, and makes keeping the console clean a very difficult task.
  • Poorly tested versions are sometimes released that cause serious issues for users. This ranges from browsers malfunctioning to BSOD errors.
  • Malware detection is good but not great. We are not confident in SEP by itself to neutralize malware threats. It's detection rate just isn't high enough for next generation and zero day threats.

Trend Micro Worry-Free Services Suite

  • Apple Mac client is troublesome.
  • Policies are clunky and difficult to understand.
  • Security Agent dashboard lacks tools needed to remediate problems.
  • Technical support was less than satisfactory.

Best of Breed. Symantec Endpoint Protection beats all other end point products I have used, tested and seen in presentation at this point in time.

Symantec Endpoint Protection centralized management console provides easy to follow, clean, and modern HTML5 based interface. All functionality required to manage Symantec Endpoint Protection is available and presented through this management interface. The Symantec Endpoint Protection provides many roles out of the box and presents relevant information based on the user role. Symantec Endpoint Protection can benefit from further scripting/automation interface development.

Installation and administration tools are fantastic. I found the endpoint policies to be not intuitive and clunky. The endpoint client was difficult to disable when trying to troubleshoot Apple issues and I often had to uninstall and then reinstall which was very time-consuming. Reporting is very useful and I was impressed with the reports I received.

We've used it for years and the software is easy to use. The dashboard is easy to read, and you can easily figure out where to go to troubleshoot or deploy software. Symantec is there for emergencies like backup restoration or file retrieval. It's pretty low maintenance. Symantec is there when your IT infrastructure needs it

I've called a few times and the support is great. They help me walk through the issues that I was having and even remotely connected to my server and show me how the fix the issue. I hope the support doesn't change since they were bought by Broadcom.

The few times I needed to contact support I was fully satisfied. They worked all the way through the issue, no matter how long it took, and made sure I had a permanent solution. I was pleased with the professionalism, courteousness, and knowledge of the product they were supporting.

Use a third party deployment tool and not the deployment option within the SEP Manager itself.

Alternatives Considered

Symantec Endpoint Security

More robust options and protections than Malware Bytes. Better overall detection and alerting to security issues. The overall ROI was better for us and we felt would also give us a stronger line of defense in our overall security strategy. We chose Symantec Endpoint because it gave us a top notch product in a price point we wanted.

Trend Micro Worry-Free Services Suite

Avast was clunky, difficult to roll out, missed loads of malware on machines, and required that we purchase a separate license to install AV on our servers. Trend Micro could not have been any different. You just contact their sales department and get a demo, or even ask for a trial of sorts to test policy creations and client installation. You'll be obsessed with the whole process and the admin dashboard you have access to.

Return on Investment

Symantec Endpoint Security

  • SEP has had a very nice ROI in the form of keeping our network safe and clients' machines clean and free from spyware and viruses.
  • The negative downside is that reinstalling the client isn't always an easy method. A lot of times we just have the user reimage their whole machine, which is usually the last resort.
  • Another positive aspect of SEP is that it allows us to identify any problematic machines which might be allowing any malware, spyware or viruses in through any network ports or connections.
We use Symantec Endpoint Environment in a manufacturing and conventional office setting. This is a very large scale operational of over 10,000 users

Trend Micro Worry-Free Services Suite

  • It's also saved money over our previous Anti-Virus solution (Kaspersky)
  • Ease of Setup/Use
