We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The number one feature I found was that the install was really easy, it was quite helpful.""The most valuable feature of Micro Focus Voltage SecureData Enterprise is the ease of configuration and the group services rest API."

"Its management is good, and it is also scalable and mostly stable.""The solution is pretty stable.""The installation process is pretty straightforward.""In general terms, it is working properly and according to our expectations. The comfort of feeling secure is the most valuable. Some customers had certain fears about changing the product because no one wants to lose any kind of information or to have some problems or inconsistencies while migrating from one product to another.""We have been very satisfied with the solution's security capabilities.""The solution is easy to use.""Disk encryption and file and folder encryption are the most valuable and used features. It is also very well integrated with Symantec Messaging Gateway and Symantec DLP, which is helpful in protecting any kind of information that goes outside. Symantec DLP catches an email and sends it to the encryption server. The encryption server encrypts the email and intimates to the user that confidential information is being sent out. The administrator can then take appropriate action.""I like the management aspect of this solution. You don't want to have end-users tweak or set it themselves, so the fact that you could do it from a central point helped us a lot."

Cons
"For a future release, the interface looks a bit dated and could be improved.""Micro Focus Voltage SecureData Enterprise can improve the types of encryptions. They are limited by the number of types of encryption and types of masking they are allowing. In the solution that we were using, the illustration interface and the number of capabilities in terms of data masking were limited."

"The initial setup is a bit complex.""They have too high of a price tag. That's why they're losing the market share.""Its remote deployment should be improved. Currently, there is no remote deployment for Symantec Endpoint Encryption. You have to install it manually. There are some issues with AD integration and the time taken to reflect a password on the Endpoint Encryption Manager when a new user has changed the password, but they are already working on these issues, and these will be resolved in the next release.""The security could be improved.""Its decryption time needs to be improved. Currently, its decryption time is very long, and it takes double time than encryption. They need to work on that. Its encryption time is fine.""From an administration point of view, maybe it would be ideal to have it centrally managed.""What I didn't find helpful in the version we used is the fact that all devices had to be on the same network for us to push through the encryption.""There are some issues with the single sign-on with the active directory. We had a few problems related to the synchronization between the active directory and the login features of the Symantec products because the users made many password changes during the day. The time for synchronization with the solutions can be improved. I would like to see mobile encryption. There should be a possibility to include all the mobiles of a company in the console. Many customers are asking about encryptions for tablets or cell phones, but we don't have any product that we are comfortable with to recommend to our customers."
