We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The internet security was a plus, and it's pretty good.""Flexible antivirus and antimalware software. It also provides protection against ransomware. It's flexible, easy to handle, scalable, and stable.""Norton Security Premium is good, and it's pretty simple to install.""We like how it can check for issues. That includes files and web browsers.""Protects me from internet vulnerability.""Security Premium's best features are blocking, notifications, and the user interface.""The most valuable feature is the quick installation.""The most valuable feature is the multifunctional protection."

More Norton Security Premium [EOL] Pros →

"One of the most valuable features is the ability to manage antivirus security. There is an admin console that helps you make policies and do deployment of the clients, to make them reachable and to deploy updates.""The most valuable feature of Symantec Endpoint Security is the protection of our systems.""Symantec is very user-friendly, the interface and functions are very simple for everyone to understand. Additionally, it's a very robust system.""The solution is easy to use""We are using it on 1,600 computers. All the systems and servers are protected with the Symantec solution. Our environment has an uptime of 99.9% because we never had any attack or issue related to viruses. There is zero downtime.""The administrator's console is very good and easy to manage with it. Deploying patches, definition updates and report is simple.""I like the endpoint detection and response. That's the best feature. I also like the fact that we don't need to use a file on the computer, whereas some anti-malware solutions work with a file on the endpoint. Symantec is a very good option compared to solutions from other vendors.""Symantec End-User Endpoint Security is easy to use."

More Symantec Endpoint Security Pros →

"Security Premium's cost could be lower.""The only problem with Norton Antivirus is that it consumes a lot of resources like CPU and memory in the background. Whenever it's scanning, my laptop becomes very slow, and the worst part is you cannot do anything about it. As this product is secured by my local IT team, you cannot even kill that process, and that's what I've felt about many other antivirus solutions. I'm using McAfee for personal use, and I have the same problem.""The product could always be more secure.""The solution can improve the security modules.""I don't like the password manager of Norton Security Premium.""Sometimes the program is too complex.""During scanning, sometimes, there is a heavy load on the workstation. This needs to be improved.""Having a dashboard that shows the different functions of Norton Security Premium can convince end users that the software is more than just an antivirus solution. This product offers several features, but end users think that it's just one out of the box solution, because the different functions are not explained in detail."

More Norton Security Premium [EOL] Cons →

"The solution has become quite complicated since Broadcom acquired Symantec, and we no longer sell it or try not to sell it.""The solution could be more secure and scalable.""We are not satisfied with the technical support.""Since the division of the company, we have experienced a lack of support.""More control features can be added, and its performance can also be better. Sometimes, the performance is not good when we access the cloud console. Moving to each tab is slow. The dashboard can be a little bit user-friendly. For some users, it is a bit difficult. If someone is a little bit familiar with it, then it is fine. Otherwise, it is hard to find policies in Symantec.""One suggestion I have for both regular and mobile would be to collect all the information about installed software, such as versions, and give that information to the manager to help with software management. That would be a huge advantage for everyone who administers these tools.""If a machine is infected by ransomware, it's hard to recover the data. We don't have any data on the client, so we're not overly concerned about that. Still, it would be nice to have this feature if there are any future problems.""It would be interesting if Symantec Endpoint protection could also manage Windows Defender. If they were to add a feature, it would be nice if you could see the Symantec client and the Windows Defender client in case you choose to deploy both."
