  • The ROI from deploying this has led to fewer security issues which reduces costs.
  • Keeping track of security issues and how the were remedied is easier.
  • Deskside support can work with end users easily if something is triggered and this allows us to not have to overstaff.

  • Positive: It is a good platform to work with once you have acquired the licenses.
  • Negative: Acquiring the licenses means traversing through red tape.

  • No real negative or positive impact. I find most endpoint products work the same and are roughly the same cost.
  • One ROI is that it still works on older Windows OS. I'm still running the new version of Windows 2003 servers as AV clients.
  • I find the client to take a lot of resources on the client and sometimes can slow the computer down. Especially when the computer doesn't have that much ram/CPU.

  • It allowed me to remove all viruses from the network.
  • It provides peace of mind that we should be able to catch and remove any virus a nefarious user would try to put on the network.

  • It has forced us to deploy secondary software to handle malware threats, as far too many of them slip by SEP unnoticed. We'd prefer not to have such an approach, but with SEP we aren't fully protected without such additional software.
  • The CPU footprint vs other similar products wastes extra CPU cycles on scanning, causing us to need larger ESX hosts for a given number of VM's, due to the overhead from the SEP client.
  • On more than one occasion, a bad update has caused significant business impact, causing us to heavily consider a different product when our next renewal period is up.
