We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.

"We like how it can check for issues.

More Norton Security Premium [EOL] Pros →

"The features are very nice. We are getting updates continuously from the Symantec side regarding any attacks, such as zero-day attacks. Symantec helps us in mitigating any attacks or threats early.""The solution is easy to use""Offers good antivirus and local firewall.""It's a robust product.""Some of the most valuable features were antivirus, malware, and spyware. They were really good.""The mobile application is valuable. You are able to see the reports of intrusions and the like on mobile devices. That is one of the coolest aspects.""Great security and very user friendly.""It is easy to use. Its interface is user-friendly. So, anybody can use it very well, which is a good thing."

"The solution can improve the security modules.""During scanning, sometimes, there is a heavy load on the workstation. This needs to be improved.""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.""Sometimes the program is too complex.""I don't like the password manager of Norton Security Premium.""The product is an antivirus, it should be updated automatically when needed.""Occasionally when you open a ticket, there's a lack of understanding that prevents the solution from being resolved directly.""The product could always be more secure."

More Norton Security Premium [EOL] Cons →

"The solution could improve by having a better graphical interface.""They provide the updates of the client, and those clients need a reboot after the upgrade, which is something we don't like. We don't like to reboot the server after the upgrade because we have live applications. If we do a reboot, it can impact the business as well.""Symantec's application security module needs some improvement. You need to create a lot of fingerprints for application security. For instance, let's say I have different brands of ATMs in my environment, like Wincor and NCR. I use GRG to deploy an application control to whitelist some applications. I have to get the exact image of the different models of ATMs. When I tested in the past, some machines would not connect to the server without that.""There is room for improvement in the zero-day threat detection system.""There are limitations because everyone these days has hybrid working; however, the endpoint does not work for us unless we are connected to a VPN, which is a major limitation.""We had trouble with the advanced features, such as the firewall builder and all the network protection modules. We were having a lot of issues because it would sometimes block users or the printing, or it would create issues with the network access resources.""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.""Symantec Endpoint Security can improve management because it is difficult to do. It is not a straightforward tool to use. Additionally, the dashboards and reports could be better. It is difficult to understand what exactly is your current status."
