Expert Insight

Symantec Endpoint Protection is a powerful Endpoint Protection platform. It’s popular with customers for its powerful protection and the way it detects threats in real time to allow you to know when an Endpoint is at risk. It offers businesses powerful network protection from viruses, intrusion attacks and zero-day exploits of endpoint devices. It’s a good choice for companies with a large number of users, with advanced protection against threats like credential theft and phishing attacks. The Detection module that they offer is a good way for businesses to spot phishing. This involves planting baits for phishing attacks, to give visibility into the kind of attacks that businesses are facing. The threat detection and response is also powerful, with threat detection and remediation powered by machine learning to automate the process and remove false positives for IT departments.

The Management Console is easy to use and offers full device application control with reporting of network threats and response capabilities. The platform offers granular admin controls. However, the advanced nature of this product means that the agent software is not quite as ‘lightweight’ as some competitor platforms, with customers suggesting that at times the performance of devices can be impacted. However, many customers have not had these issues, and it may depend on the device and operating system the system is used with. This platform is a good option with larger organisations. It’s an especially suitable option to consider for organisations with a large remote workforce, as it offers strong protection from dodgy Wifi-networks and VPN protection.
