Overall Satisfaction with Symantec Data Loss Prevention

We utilize Symantec DLP for several data and IP protection use cases company wide on all managed endpoints. System is configured to inspect data in use and on the move via USB, File copy/move, and/or email. It works well for us but our use cases are very limited. We do content inspection and blocking for a dictionary of keywords and also data identified as sensitive to our company.
  • Protection against Data Leakage via the USB channel on endpoints.
  • Protection against Data Leakage via email channel on endpoints
  • Protection against Data Leakage over the Web channel on endpoints.
  • Flexible and configurable for various types of content inspection.
  • Tighter integration with the rest of the Symantec enterprise security tools.
  • More/better native cloud SaaS controls
  • We have been able to govern the exfiltration of sensitive data from managed endpoints.
  • Greatly increased our Data Protection capabilities to control data flow.
  • High confidence that data on our managed endpoints that have Symantec DLP installed are secure in terms of data leakage and exfiltration.
I haven't compared this product directly with others but I have seen and used the Microsoft Office 365 Compliance app(s); and there seems to be a good parity generally between the products in most capability areas for DLP.
Symantec DLP works good for our very simple and low complexity use cases and I would highly recommend it for them. However, I can't speak to highly complex or advanced use cases that might arise in certain industries like finance. I would recommend that if you are seeking an Enterprise DLP solution that you absolutely must explore this product as one of the leaders in the space - not doing so would be negligent in my opinion.

Works well for our very limited use cases with over 50K endpoints. Has the proper information and UI required for investigating violations and resolving the cases. Our dictionary of terms to look for in content changes often, but isn't really that big. The system handles us changing the list quite often, but I can't speak to how well the system would work with a very large list - you will want to POC that use case before a purchase.
