Overall Satisfaction with Symantec Endpoint Security

We use Symantec Endpoint Security or Broadcom, as it is now owned by them, to secure our servers against viruses and malware. It allows us to centrally manage anti-virus policies, group together types of endpoint devices, and provide different policies for each.
  • Management
  • Policies
  • Exclusions
  • The firewall features could do with some improvement and I've found it easier to disable and use the Windows firewall instead.
  • Confidence in an industry standard product.
  • Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP)
Symantec Endpoint Protection really shines against its competitors when it comes to centralized management. It falls a little short when it comes to cloud deployments.

Yes

Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection, Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), Trend Micro Apex One (formerly OfficeScan)
Symantec Endpoint Protection is well suited to legacy, on-premises type environments. It is less well suited to cloud environments, especially Microsoft Azure, where it is better to manage using Microsoft's own Defender solutions.
