Overall Satisfaction with Symantec Endpoint Protection

Symantec Endpoint Protection is being used by the whole organization. Every user has it, and every one is protected from intrusion, firewall, and anti-malware features. The good thing is that it all comes in one pack of services. It includes data loss prevention software, prevents unapproved programs from running, and even applies firewall policies that block network traffic if needed. By far, Symantec Endpoint Protection is a very complete security software.
  • Virus definitions are kept up to date as soon as new threats are created.
  • Includes data loss prevention software.
  • The zero day protection is a very fast way to protect is from not yet known threats.
  • ALL of the emails are scanned, as well as files.
  • It has frequent updates and extra features.
  • Whenever you do deep scans, be aware they might take a little while.
  • It does a lot of updates, and some of them may take a while, and may need interaction to complete.
  • Symantec sometimes uses a huge amount of system resources.
  • It provides excellent protection from all threat types.
  • It's easy to use and navigate.
  • Symantec has good mobile device management features.
  • Symantec lacks reporting capabilities.
I used Norton Small Business for only a short time, so I do not have all the information on this software, but I will try. Symantec Endpoint Protection is way better than Norton Small Business. Because it has everything you need in only one software, furthermore, Symantec Endpoint Protection is way more efficient than Norton Small Business in keeping the virus definitions up to date.
One specific scenario where Symantec Endpoint Protection is well used is when you receive a large number of emails. The software scans every one of them, making it secure for you to read them all, and if there is any untrusted email, Symantec Endpoint Protection will warn you, and even prevent you from seeing the email content for your safety.
One specific scenario where Symantec Endpoint Protection is less appropriate is when you talk about phishing. It lacks anti-phishing capabilities and lacks report capabilities.
