Overall Satisfaction with Symantec Endpoint Protection

Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) is being used throughout our entire organization on all of our desktops, Laptops, and Servers. We have been a Symantec shop for almost as long as I have been with the company which is almost 20 years. We rely on SEP to keep all of our endpoints protected from all malicious threats.
  • SEP is extremely powerful in that you can get very granular with policies.
  • Since I have been the SEP Admin I have never been hit with a widespread outbreak.
  • Support has always been able to resolve any issue that I have had.
  • Reporting is not the best.
  • Support is based oversees, which can make it difficult sometimes.
  • Every release has at least one small bug.
  • To date we have never been hit with a widespread Ransomware attack
  • To our knowledge we have never experienced a data leak
  • We have had little to no business interruptions due to a security attack. Down time for us means lower sales.
We have only ever used SEP. There has never been a need for us to shop around. Nothing major is broke, so we have had no need to fix it with another solution.
SEP is ideal for medium to large enterprises. We have almost 9000 endpoints and I am confident that all of these devices are well protected. I am not sure that I would recommend this solution for small businesses. Not to say they could not use it, but licensing can be expensive and a full time admin is recommended.
