Overall Satisfaction with Symantec Advanced Threat Protection

It;s being used by one country division. Day to day connectivity and devices that we connect to our windows machine.
Also filters spam/phishing mails which could have broader impact. It's in "always on" mode and very rarely it needs manual intervention.
Till now with my personal experience I have seen 10+ occurrences where Symantec has proven worth.
  • Almost no manual intervention.
  • "Always on" mode detects threats from every device connected.
  • Covers multiple interfaces, mail, web browsing, downloads, new memory device.
  • Could be more informative about threats observed.
  • Could warn about probable method which could lead to threats.
  • If during bring-up some tips could be shared.. as 1 line read better.
  • Background work.
  • Alerting about threats based on priority.
  • Encryption of office data give peace about data even if laptop stolen.
  • Peace of mind achieved when there are no manual interactions required about security.
  • Encrypting data ensures protection of official data.
  • Devices are well protected.
It was basically selected due to existing partnerships. And good track record.

It's covering most of the security threats for day to day office work. Can trust and use doubtful devices on office laptops as it's not allowing any permission without scan. Although it's less interactive, it could improve on that and maybe providing security tips during boot up or when connecting any device to laptop.
