Overall Satisfaction with Symantec Endpoint Protection

We currently use Symantec Endpoint Protection on all of our end users' computers as a way to protect their PCs from viruses and other various forms of malware. We currently use it on all PCs between two different locations as a preventative measure to protect our network. We also utilize the quarantine feature to safely contain any possible threats.
  • Virus Protection
  • Quarantine environment for possible threats
  • Automatic updates for latest virus/malware definitions
  • Picked up false positive viruses during scan
  • Has caused driver instability in the past
  • Fairly high resource usage
  • Less time spent nuking PCs and reinstalling after an attack
  • No compromised files
  • Easy management has allowed IT to utilize resources elsewhere
Though Avast seems to use less resources than Symantec Endpoint Protection, we felt that Symantec Endpoint Protection offered better protection against zero day exploits and kept up to date far more than Avast. In addition, we felt that the price was affordable for the product. Our end users love Symantec Endpoint Protection!
Because it can be installed/updated via a group policy/patch management software, I think that Symantec Endpoint Protection is best suited for very large environments that need an added layer of protection from malicious attacks. It's probably not well suited for smaller environments that may be using older machines as it seems to take up a lot of resources to scan and run.
