Symantec Advanced Threat Protection Review: "Symantec Is Not Up to Par"

My IT department used it as the primary threat control for all machines in the organization. It was meant to address a simple means of identifying viruses/malware/etc. and we would be notified of quarantines or current issues in order to inspect on our own.
  • It was easy to install on machines in an active directory environment, and maintain/update whenever we needed without having to physically go to clients.
  • The interface was pretty well locked down for clients, which was good in order to stop accidental meddling.
  • Symantec has good online resources for current threats, including messages or warning signs and what to do/where to find them on a machine in case SATP cannot deal with it on its own.
  • Doing manual scans are incredibly slow, and the UI didn't help. It's difficult to find important settings.
  • It often didn't find threats that I knew existed on a machine, and I had to use other products in order to solve the problem. It seems like it finds only the obvious threats. After a couple years, I stopped trusting it as the one-stop-shop for threat detection, and it eventually became a nuisance when given the option to favor other detection programs.
  • It didn't do well against ransomware, and in all known cases in 2015 through 2016 it failed to detect anything until it was too late.
If you need something simple to quickly deploy, it's fine. But if you have other options, go with more useful threat detection products. I wasn't impressed by what it does.

We use Symantec Threat protection in the whole organization. In healthcare this is especially important as we're liable for the loss of patient records and HIPAA laws.
  • Ensures there is no adverse activity on the network, outside invasions, loss of data, spoofing of accounts.
  • Blocks denial of services attacks
  • Integrating to other tools in your portfolio
This is a great enterprise-level solution. It is a tool well suited for a NOC or SOC department to oversee. You will get a huge or on this investment by simply avoiding hacking and loss of data, in any environment, but especially if you're in healthcare or financial services, where there's more regulation around data.
