Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

Frankly, the other products were too expensive to make the change from Symantec so we continued with the tried and true protection. We don't have the funding to move to a more expensive product and the manpower that it would take to implement a new solution.

  • Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)
The Microsoft product is much better for smaller companies as the setup and maintenance are very much in line with the MS 365 eco-system. With that said the Symantec product is much more mature and with the ability to have local pieces to the infrastructure, you are not totally dependent on MS's cloud-only setup. They both have their merits and in my mind, they come down to Symantec being a better fit for larger companies with a full IT staff.

  • Comodo Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP)
Symantec Advanced Threat Protection is one of the best compared to other current vendors & competitors. Symantec Advanced Threat Protection has the most complete features such as content analysis, network detection & response, web filtering, email detection & response, content analysis, web isolation, & more. It had slow development at the beginning but the acceleration for the last few years was incredible.

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection is a software with a high potential to detect and respond quickly to threats that target email, however Symantec Advanced Threat Protection provides a more complete protection that protects the entire network or devices and endpoints that are managed on a daily basis and has incredible ease of use. While Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection is not a software that is very easy to use, it requires high maintenance and its protection is based on attacks that enter through email; this is why Symantec Advanced Threat Protection was finally chosen.

The alternatives we tested we all good contenders with comparable features to Symantec Advanced Threat Protection. In the end there we a few minor pros that pushed us over the edge; The GUI was more easy to navigate, the set-up appeared to be simpler and the Symantec name gave us more confidence in their threat detection capabilities.

Symantec meets and in almost all cases exceeds the offering of other products in the same or similar categories.
It is however, one of the few companies that offers a wide ranging array of solutions that can protect and organization from top to bottom. It is not a singularly focused solution for edge or end user, but can be a near all-in-one solution.

We also use McAfee Endpoint production due a main application only support McAfee. The McAfee agent is very cpu intensive. The administrative tool has too many product that can be managed from one tool. If you don't use those products they are still visible. Having to install two products to get it working is hard to manage. You have to install an agent then install the McAfee endpoint production product. As with SEP it's just one product to install.

Webroot has an online management portal which is accessible from anywhere and is very nice. Webroot also has a very easy deployment, which is very nice by comparison.

The software is much better than the Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection and the others in the market because it is faster, more efficient, and does not affect the final user. This program executes in the background when we are using other software and programs (at the same time) because it does not need to use a lot of the processor (CPU).

Cisco FireAMP was a terrible competitor to Symantec. Outdated UI, often flagged itself as a threat, and difficult to manage/trust.
Avast was much better than Symantec, however, its deployment was more difficult. But detection was great and we could trust its results much more. Malwarebytes was the best out of all. We could trust the results, and it was easy to use and deploy. There were no issues with this application compared to Symantec.

  • Cynic
Doesn't require me to provide dedicated virtual machines or organization specific images to detonate and detect malware. Cynic uses this suite of analysis technologies across multiple operating systems and multiple application versions. Makes it easier on our resources and planning as this alone helps to save time.
