Overall Satisfaction with Symantec Endpoint Security

Symantec Endpoint Security is being used across our organization as the main end point protection product for preventing viruses and spyware. It's installed on every end point in the organization Symantec offers a client for, desktops and laptops running windows, servers running Windows and LINUX and a few MACS.
  • Prevents Virus
  • Prevents Spyware
  • Management UI is Outdated and Complex to Use
  • Removing End Points Completely is time consuming and diffcult
  • Support in general is tribble, very difficult to get any complex technical problems resolved
  • Technical Support
  • Management Tools
  • Uninstalling End Points
  • Overall product GUI
Symantec Endpoint Production is hands down my least favorite endpoint projection software on the market today. It's a difficult endpoint to deploy, manage and remove. It's a heavy client so once you get it installed it consumes a large amount of resources on the endpoint. The management GUI is out dated and difficult to use. On top of all that their support is difficult to work with.

Did implementation of Symantec Endpoint Security go as expected?


Would you buy Symantec Endpoint Security again?


Symantec Endpoint Security is well suited for a small organization with a limited number of end points, once you get into the 100's of endpoints the weaknesses in the management tools become clear. It does do a decent job at protecting end points from viruses and spyware, assuming your able to get the endpoints installed correctly.
