Overall Satisfaction with Symantec Endpoint Protection

Symantec Endpoint Protection is used as the front-line antivirus solution and is utilized on all computer systems and servers throughout our entire organization. SEP provides us with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have a top tier antivirus solution in today's rapidly evolving world of computer systems and data security.
  • Antivirus detection.
  • Minimal false positives.
  • Ease of use to manage security alerts.
  • Automatic major version upgrades.
  • More friendly administration console.
  • Better detections for non-traditional viruses/malware.
  • Reduced number of virus infections in organization.
  • Provides proactive alerts for suspicious software and behaviors.
  • Costly, but worth the price.
Symantec Endpoint Protection outperformed all other competitor front-line antivirus products with more accurate signature detections and less false positives. We ultimately chose to pair SEP with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to provide a more comprehensive security solution that could detect and prevent infection from both traditional viruses as well as non-traditional infections and malware.
I have only had to contact support for our Symantec Endpoint Protection product once, and they resolved my issue quickly and capably.

Symantec Endpoint Protection serves as an excellent front-line antivirus solution for larger organizations who need to manage numerous computer systems, servers, and users. For smaller organizations, they offer a "Small Business" version of the software that is more suitable, primarily due to price point. SEP is particularly effective when paired with a second anti-malware solution, such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
