We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"We like how it can check for issues. That includes files and web browsers.""The product is called Norton 360 all-in-one. It is a full product.""Protects me from internet vulnerability.""Norton Security Premium is good, and it's pretty simple to install.""The most valuable feature is the quick installation.""The dashboard is good.""The most valuable feature is the multifunctional protection.""The antivirus aspect of the solution is very good."

More Norton Security Premium Pros →

"Their threat protection is very good. We are managing a good number of users thanks to the solution and we are pretty satisfied with it.""The most valuable feature of Symantec Endpoint Security is the protection of our systems.""Its ease of use in deploying it and regular updates are most valuable.""The solution is easy to use""Easy to use solution.""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.""I like the malware threat control policy and USB blocker. In Symantec Manager, we use multiple available features, so we created firewall policies to prevent any malware attack from the network or device controls.""The initial setup is very simple and straightforward."

Cons
"The product could always be more secure.""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.""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.""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 solution can improve the security modules.""During scanning, sometimes, there is a heavy load on the workstation. This needs to be improved."

More Norton Security Premium Cons →

"The monitoring capabilities could be further developed.""The platform itself can be improved as there's no way to track how infections get into the organization.""If the agent can be minimized so that it can work with in-memory concepts, that would be ideal. As of now, it is file-based, signature-based.""In a few cases, when we enable the IPS/IDS feature, there are performance-related issues on the end devices. If we run quite a few features of Symantec, especially the IPS/IDF, it consumes a lot of processing and memory capacity.""I would like to see improvements in the anti-virus and the device control features.""The solution has become quite complicated since Broadcom acquired Symantec, and we no longer sell it or try not to sell it.""It can be improved in terms of features and integration. It should have more advanced features and more integration. Currently, it is just talking to their own solutions. They could add more artificial intelligence, more XDR, and more integration with other vendors so that we can do sharing of information with other vendors.""The artificial intelligence of Symantec End-User Endpoint Security could be better."
