Symantec Data Loss Prevention Pros

Meleria Mangaring - PeerSpot reviewer
Systems Engineer at Trends and Technologies, Inc
With respect to the amount of intelligence that they have with respect to how they formed the DLP solution, for example, exact data matching. If you compare Forcepoint with Symantec, Symantec is more sophisticated than Forcepoint.

What we like about Symantec Data Loss Prevention is that it's a very good product. We never faced any problems with its performance. It has very good performance. There was this RAM issue, but it was an internal issue which we've sorted out. Apart from the RAM issue, there are no other issues with Symantec Data Loss Prevention.

Symantec Data Loss Prevention Cons

Systems Engineer at Trends and Technologies, Inc
The one downside for Symantec is that, due to its transition from Symantec to Broadcom, there's been a lot of changes. I am based in the Philippines and we don't have a contact person locally for any Symantec.

In the object capture recognition, which we implemented recently, there are a lot of false positives that have been happening.

The database is a problem for us, as it's running on Oracle and not everybody likes that.

There are some features that are not available which are required by every data loss prevention solution.
It is very difficult to log in to create a support ticket because no one is available to support our queries.

Sometimes setting up the solution can get a little tricky because it would depend on your internal infrastructure. For example, you have to connect the Symantec Data Loss Prevention platform and you need to integrate it, so that could make the process somewhat difficult.
