Great easy to use product

What do you like best?
The installer is quick and painless to run, and using the console to manage workstations is super simple. The software does a very good job of running in the background and not using a ton of system resources. We haven't had any problems with it running in a ~50 workstation environment.
What do you dislike?
I can't say there's really anything that I have found to dislike about the product. it does its job pretty well.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Keeping the workstations infection free and running well.

Basic console. Could be more robust/updated. Group Update Provider config should allow for more control/limiting.

Endpoint workstation/server AntiVirus. Application and Device control (USB Lockdown). Reporting on both.

Good solution for your enterprise environment

  • June 12, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
SEP offers a ton of customization from within the administrators console. You can adjust how the software deploys (scan network or target machines specifically --- or export a package and add to SCCM for deployment), installs (silent, forced reboots or not), create specific policies for groups of devices, enable disable firewall (if you use Windows firewall for example).

Server interface is very straight forward.
What do you dislike?
Reporting features could be a lot more easy to use. The search functions are not simple, and the reporting always comes back in a funky display.

Creating file exclusions can be a pain.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Antivirus requirements for our enterprise environment. SEP offers a complete package, with the ability to customize features and policies depending on the scope of work. AKA, we can enforce more on our at risk users, and less on our super users and trusted team members.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Look at the amount of devices up front. Symantec offered different pricing options depending on the seat count that we were hoping to use.

Gets the job done

  • June 07, 2016
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Runs in the background without popups or otherwise interfering with computer use, doesn't seem to use up too much processing functionality.
What do you dislike?
No complaints here. Another program like Malware Bytes Anti Malware may be necessary to remove viruses that do make it on to PCs, but that's standard across the industry, at least in my limited experience.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We haven't had many virus problems! So it seems like it's working.
