Overall Satisfaction with Symantec Endpoint Encryption

Symantec Endpoint Protection is being used by the global Ford Motor Company organization. All the computers owned by the company have this software installed as default. It protects our hardware/software from online and local threats (spyware, virus, malware etc.).
  • Different scan options available based on the needs (Active scan: 1-2 minutes / Full scan: 30-120 minutes).
  • Easy capture and removal of malware, spam, virus etc.
  • Live Update on protection database - makes you feel safe all the time.
  • Easy access to logs (Threat protection, Virus & Spyware, Network Mitigation...).
  • Simple interface and easy management of all the tools/features.
  • The administrative console gives rights to admins.
  • Can cause computers with old tech to slow down during start up
  • Less detailed report capability
  • No harm on the critical files due to excellent protection
  • Safe online work due to clean internet connection
  • No negative impacts
Back in the day, Norton was one of the choices in the company; while now Symantec is being used as default in the global organization due to its advantages against the alternatives. Very briefly, Symantec provides more benefits especially when considered as a business-level solution.
I think Symantec Endpoint Protection provides very good protection from all kind of threats. Due to the lean interface, it is sure easy to use. However, set up and start up is time-consuming. It can cause old computers to slow down during start up. Overall, it does perform at the top level as a business-level endpoint protection solution. I feel very safe while working at the office as I've never encountered any issues with this software before. Any kind of spyware or malware is defeated instantly by the help of this up-to-date database.
