Overall Satisfaction with Symantec VIP

Symantec VIP is a necessity in working in this company. From logging in to my company email to logging in to the chat software, we are using it. It serves as an additional security every time we use the company email address. We are mandated to download the Symantec VIP on our personal phones and we can approve that we are logging in to our company email address on the specific device that we are working on. It enhances the security of using the company email and lessens the risk of someone illegally using the email and password that a certain employee has.
  • Increases security in the company.
  • Can be easily set up in any device.
  • Logging in can be easily approved or denied.
  • Can be setup in the phone which is very accessible.
  • Additional email notifications every log in.
  • Disabling the Symantec vip in the device in case it gets lost.
  • Being able to use it offline.
  • Additional security feature
  • Being able to scan the QR code of the device
  • Being able to approve or deny the log in
  • Increase company security.
  • Tracking the employee's device behavior.
  • Easy and straightforward UI for the users.
  • Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (Discontinued)
Azure Multi-Factor Authentication is now discontinued, hence, making the Symantec VIP used in the company. Symantec has a better UI which makes the user see straight forward interface in terms of getting the code or approving the login. It also has a mobile app which we mostly use in the company but I have not tried the Azure mobile app (not sure if they have one).

Yes

Did Symantec VIP live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Symantec VIP go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Symantec VIP again?

Yes

It is very well appropriate for companies, especially larger companies, to improve the security of using the email address or logging in the company websites which are highly confidential. This can track the employee's activities and used devices easier than just simply relying on the email and password authentication or being strict in the devices' MAC address. For me, using Symantec VIP can be a hassle if it is back to the office setup since all of the devices there are well observed and tracked so there is little to no use in using additional security like this one.
