Updating the client is not a very easy process. Deploying the client could be easier. They have a deployment tool, but it doesn't really get to all PCs, which means I still have to manually deploy it. Because the product has so much customization, it can also be very difficult to set up and understand.,7,We haven't ever suffered from a serious security compromise, and I owe that to our Symantec AV. Once installed and set up, it's difficult to pull it out of the environment and try something else, so it has a way of keeping itself stable.

We have implemented Symantec's AV as a means to protect against virus and malware security issues. It's deployed at a number of our customer sites and, for the price, really has a great history of doing a good job.
  • It seems to be very good at protecting us from threats. We don't have users who are doing stupid things or anything, but we have never had a severe compromise.
  • The management is pretty easy (we are using the on-prem version), it's full of the ability to see what's going on and customize things.
  • The client runs without much issue, and without users' knowledge or involvement.
  • I don't like that I have to maintain the client and keep it up to date. Updating the client is not a very easy process.
  • Deploying the client could be easier. They have a deployment tool, but it doesn't really get to all PCs, which means I still have to manually deploy it.
  • Because the product has so much customization, it can also be very difficult to set up and understand.
I think it would be best suited for an enterprise level environment where you have dedicated onsite IT staff able to check it, manage it, and update it daily.

  • Fast process.

  • The program can protect from malware of the system and services too.
  • Improve the protection of the system in all areas.
  • The employees are now safer and relaxed about security.
  • The company now has more protection in the data and information.
With Symantec Advanced Threat Protection you can protect machines, the system in the cloud, communications, videos, and important information (secret information) from people that have the intention to of stealing it. One thing that I do not like is the price. It is a wonderful program with a lot of benefits, but it is very expensive when we compared it with other companies in the market.

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.
