Helps to meet all regulatory requirements, is customizable, and flexible
Pros and Cons
  • "The detection capabilities are comprehensive."
  • "From a management perspective, it takes a lot of time to manage the infrastructure."

What is our primary use case?

Symantec Data Loss Prevention is an enterprise-level solution and we utilize it for its customization, and flexibility across the platform as well as the excellent support and feature levels compared to other similar solutions.

How has it helped my organization?

There is still potential for improvement when it comes to data discovery over a network. How successful the process is depends largely on the network configuration and connectivity to the destination. Utilizing a detection server or network discovery can help facilitate the data discovery process. Recently, I discovered around 15,000 to 20,000 shareholders for Symantec using DLP for data discovery. Agent Discovery is also highly effective, with no performance issues showing up when performing endpoint discovery for the Symantec database.

I have not had much experience working with Macs, but they come with an in-built security feature. This can be challenging to work with, as not all features are supported in comparison to Windows. However, the solution recently became compatible with the Linux operating system, allowing us to deploy agents on this system as well.

Symantec Data Loss Prevention is a globally accepted product that provides an enterprise-level view of an organization. Although some of the features the solution offers are being utilized, there is still more potential to be explored if the organization puts more focus on using them to their fullest potential. Recently, the ICD or ID features, which cover all increase points and every other technology, were introduced. The solution provides features that correlate all events and generate top results. In DLP, the role bit and success management are present, allowing us to escalate incidents. We can also define an escalation process, allowing data owners to view incidents and escalate them as necessary. This functionality is provided by the solution. The primary goal of the DLP is to monitor and control the organization's data usage, as well as to facilitate audibility and accountability. Symantec Data Loss Prevention is well-suited to fulfill these needs.

The solution helps us find sensitive data and apply policies based on user risk. We can use indexing for highly confidential documents that are not to be published or shared with more than two to five people outside of the organization, such as the board of directors. Indexed Document Matching is a useful feature that can help ensure that the document remains secure. We can create remote detection over the product and map the UNC part. The data owner will put the file of a particular document, which will be converted into IDX format. We can then apply the policy remotely so that the data will not come to the DLP admin or any other person and will remain protected.

The solution offers a range of pre-defined data identifiers to meet all regulatory requirements, such as those mandated by the GDPR, PHI, PCI, and USUN. These data identifiers can be used to identify and protect personal data globally.

The solution helped reduce the time our DLP administrator spends on data loss protection. Spending time monitoring the data is essential. We have to stay up to date and investigate any issues that arise in order to improve health monitoring by fine-tuning incidents and reducing false positives because automation is not available. 

What is most valuable?

The solution offers a one-click view from a single console, with detailed incident investigation capabilities that capture activity from end users, the web, and email. Symantec Data Loss Prevention provides comprehensive information conveniently and efficiently while also conforming to good architectural standards.

Compared to Forcepoint DLP, we can see that the email is not available. In Symantec, we are dependent on other products, such as DashMagiq, to release quarantined emails. This is because DashMagiq is able to do this through its API integration with the Office 365 email box. Unlike Forcepoint DLP, we don't have the option to release quarantined emails ourselves.

The detection capabilities are comprehensive. The solution covers all channels and supports cloud scanning. Additionally, the cloud-based solutions provided by CASB offer additional functionalities and now include AdvExt.

Symantec Data Loss Prevention has good detection accuracy. In some instances, the solution can produce a false positive. The solution's Application Monitoring feature allows us to monitor data that should be uploaded through an application; however, it can trigger an incident when the application is opened. The features provided by Broadcom are generally practical, but some of the less-used features may not be as accurate.

What needs improvement?

Before the release of version 16.0, some features were missing. Location-based detection and USB print blocking are still not available. This means we cannot configure the blocking of a USB printer, and we also cannot identify whether a system is on the network or off the network in a large environment. Additionally, the feature that is currently available is not fully operational. The domain-based resolution can sometimes take time to determine whether the system is accessible over the network or not.

From a management perspective, it takes a lot of time to manage the infrastructure. It seems that having cloud options available would reduce the overhead of managing infrastructure. Depending on the organization, we can choose to have the solution on-premises or on the cloud. If we choose the cloud, we can focus more on data loss prevention instead of managing the infrastructure.

Installation was straightforward and technical support was good
Pros and Cons
  • "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."
  • "What could be improved in Symantec Data Loss Prevention is its security. It should be more secure."

What is our primary use case?

We use Symantec Data Loss Prevention mostly for preventing and protecting against email threats. The tool tracks internal to external emails. Whatever attachment there is that's moving from internal to external is also tracked. If someone's sending a file, it would also be forwarded to the team lead or manager. The password for signing into the email should not be shared because when shared, it will be blocked. We have configured these policies in Symantec Data Loss Prevention. The tool also tracks whenever a user transfers data from one machine to another. These are our use cases for it.

What is most valuable?

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.

What needs improvement?

What could be improved in Symantec Data Loss Prevention is its security. It should be more secure.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been dealing with Symantec Data Loss Prevention for almost four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Symantec Data Loss Prevention is a stable tool.

How are customer service and support?

The technical support for Symantec Data Loss Prevention is very good.

How was the initial setup?

The installation for Symantec Data Loss Prevention was straightforward. It took almost fifteen days to completely roll it out.

What other advice do I have?

I have experience with Symantec Data Loss Prevention. I've implemented it. I was the Symantec expert, and I've also implemented Symantec Endpoint Protection, Symantec Mail Security for Exchange, Symantec SharePoint, and Symantec network storage devices, in my previous projects.

Symantec Data Loss Prevention was deployed on-premises only because the customer requirement was to not forward the logs through the cloud directly, so the solution was installed on-premises.

In terms of the number of clients my company has for Symantec Data Loss Prevention, there are currently two thousand clients.

I would surely recommend the tool to others. Whenever my company goes to the customers, the team always recommends either Forcepoint or Symantec Data Loss Prevention.

My rating for Symantec Data Loss Prevention is nine out of ten.

It has broad coverage across multiple channels, including USB, web, and email
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable aspect of Symantec DLP is its broad coverage. Symantec DLP covers USB, Outlook email clients, and web traffic. If we install the endpoint DLP, we can cover multiple channels, including the clipboard and printer."
  • "Symantec DLP doesn't provide complete cloud coverage. We need another DLP solution to monitor our cloud applications."

What is our primary use case?

We use Symantec DLP for endpoint, network, and storage data loss prevention. Symantec DLP is deployed across multiple locations and departments, covering around 10,000 users. 

How has it helped my organization?

With Symantec DLP, we can identify where most of our sensitive data resides. By scanning the database and file server, we can find sensitive data and determine how people use it with the analytical view. For example, we discovered someone copying some sensitive data and project information during their two-week notice period. The SOP for any solution implemented in the infrastructure is placed in SharePoint. They tried to copy that information and send it to their personal email. We identified the potential leak and notified the leaders of the firm.

The endpoint DLP isn't something that provides 100 percent coverage. It is a strategic solution and a process by which we strengthen rules and policies for detecting and identifying sensitive information and how it can leave the company. The DLP solution doesn't provide total coverage, but it can protect about 70 percent of our daily process activity. It also reduces the time DLP admins spend on these tasks by about 20 percent.

Symantec also helps us meet our regulatory requirements. Symantec DLP has preset rules for PCI DSS compliance that we can use to monitor if any users are sending credit card numbers to outside parties. It has similar features for compliance with GDPR and other types of regulations.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspect of Symantec DLP is its broad coverage. Symantec DLP covers USB, Outlook email clients, and web traffic. If we install the endpoint DLP, we can cover multiple channels, including the clipboard and printer. 

What distinguishes Symantec from other solutions is the technology to create policies based on our customer's requirements, like ID items and index documents. We can fingerprint our documents so that any attempt to send the data outside the organization is detected. Symantec DLP has Described Content Matching if you need to send unstructured data. We can carry out the rule with the Described Content Matching technology. 

This enables us to create multiple rules. Symantec offers various technologies, like Index Document Matching, Described Content Matching, and Exact Data Matching. We can also create rules for structured data stored in the Excel database.

In addition to these features, Symantec DLP also provides email traffic monitoring, giving us visibility into on-prem Exchange email servers and cloud-based tools like Office 365. We can extend DLP detection to all email and SMTP traffic. 

I rate Symantec DLP a ten out of ten for ease of use and implementation. It's easier to use than other DLP solutions. 

The detection capabilities are also excellent. I rate Symantec DLP eight and a half out of ten for detection. I give Symantec an eight out of ten for accuracy and seven out of ten for scanning speed. 

What needs improvement?

Symantec DLP doesn't provide complete cloud coverage. We need another DLP solution to monitor our cloud applications. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used Symantec DLP for around five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Symantec DLP is stable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Symantec DLP is scalable.

How are customer service and support?

I rate Symantec's support an eight out of ten. 

How would you rate customer service and support?

Positive

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used Forcepoint and McAfee. Symantec is easier to implement and manage. The coverage is also better. Symantec easily covers email and web traffic. I rate Symantec's detention capabilities an eight out of ten versus seven for Forcepoint and five for McAfee.

How was the initial setup?

Deploying Symantec DLP is a little complex. We had to create an Oracle database when we implemented the solution. That part was difficult, but the rest was straightforward. 

There are three phases of implementation and many tasks in the beginning. First, we had to identify our sensitive data, where they are, and how they are being used. It was a long process initially. After finding all those things, we implemented the DLP solution in the infrastructure. We had been using an endpoint DLP, which didn't cover most email traffic, so we implemented email and web DLP.

We had to do a lot of work in the early stages, but the solution doesn't need much oversight once it's mature in the infrastructure. One or two people can manage it. I and one of my team members administer it. Two other people handle the incident management. Few changes are required after it is fully deployed and mature. You occasionally need to modify some rules and add some exceptions. 

The initial installation took about a week, but it takes nearly a month to configure all the policies. Two admins and one engineer were responsible for the deployment. Maintenance involves the database, networking team, and DLP teams. That's five people altogether.

What was our ROI?

Symantec saves us time and costs. It enables us to easily monitor all the incidents and quickly configure policies. The solution reduced our operating costs by about 20 to 25 percent. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Symantec's pricing is competitive. I would recommend Symantec DLP over cheaper solutions because it provides a broader range of detection across various channels that isn't easy to achieve with other solutions. The solution also makes compliance with multiple regulatory regimes easier. 

What other advice do I have?

I rate Symantec Data Loss Prevention an eight out of ten.

Algorithm prevents users from copying or sending sensitive data, and UX saves me time
Pros and Cons
  • "For detection, it has a great algorithm. It can recognize ID numbers and everything that you put in a policy for the end-users. That is really great for us as an institution where we have sensitive data. It recognizes all the sensitive data when someone tries to transfer it or put in other data."
  • "I would like to see changes to the analytics."

What is our primary use case?

We have some sectors that have sensitive data, and for that reason we use  Symantec Data Loss Prevention. We have some policies on those sectors so that if somebody uses an ID number or some other sensitive number, we record it in our system.

How has it helped my organization?

The benefit is that users can't copy or send sensitive data to another user outside our organization.

It has also helped save so much time. For me, as an administrator of the agents, who installs and puts group policies and rights in place, it saves me 20 or 30 percent of my time.

What is most valuable?

We can see everything about the users, meaning what kinds of data they use on their computers. When you install the Symantec agent on users' PCs, you define a role for the users and set the policy. We have set rights such that users can't copy sensitive data or send it via email or to USB. After, you can search monthly or yearly and see what kind of data they have used or shared and where they shared the data.

We also like the analytics and reports. We can get yearly reports, six-month reports, and monthly reports for analytics that we can export.

And for administrators and system engineers, it's easy to use, install, maintain, and upgrade. It's also easy for end-users.

For detection, it has a great algorithm. It can recognize ID numbers and everything that you put in a policy for the end-users. That is really great for us as an institution where we have sensitive data. It recognizes all the sensitive data when someone tries to transfer it or put in other data. When that happens it sends me a notification that somebody needs to use an ID or sensitive data. Its accuracy of detection is high.

Another positive aspect is that the speed of discovery is very high. We are very satisfied.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see changes to the analytics. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Symantec since 2018, making it about five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It has constantly worked fine for me all these years. I haven't had any problems with it. It's highly stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's also highly scalable.

How are customer service and support?

The support could be more knowledgeable.

However, the firm we bought it from supports me very well. I would rate that firm a 10 out of 10.

How would you rate customer service and support?

Positive

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have only used Symantec File Share Encryption and Data Loss Prevention.

How was the initial setup?

We have it installed on-premises on virtual services.

Deploying it to the end-users was not complex. It was very easy for me. I installed it on about 40 computers, each used by two users, who are all in one location. It took two or three weeks in total.

In terms of maintenance, I maintain the agents and all the servers where Symantec is installed.

What other advice do I have?

I would highly recommend Symantec DLP. This is the best algorithm that I have seen compared to other products.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

A solution with superb capabilities and administrative controls but its reliance on Oracle is limiting
Pros and Cons
  • "The solution is simple to use with good administrative controls and a console that is easy to understand."
  • "The solution relies on and Oracle database which is not financially feasible for many customers."

What is our primary use case?

Our company is a partner and deploys the solution for customers as a management server and email network.

What is most valuable?

The solution is simple to use with good administrative controls and a console that is easy to understand. This is particularly important because end users are security engineers, CSOs and compliance managers with minimal technical knowledge. 

The DLP is very effective on the application side because there is a control on both endpoint and network storage. These components are separate from each other which needs to be planned out carefully but reduces server needs. 

What needs improvement?

The solution should integrate with other databases because it relies on Oracle which is not financially feasible for many customers, particularly in small or poor countries. Oracle is very expensive on the cloud side. 

Operational costs are too high for small offices that rely on Microsoft Office, so they instead opt for free yet powerful databases such as MySQL. 

Data tagging and classification would be useful because multiple agent roles are needed solve issues. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for ten years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The network and storage are very stable. 

I've experienced a few issues with the DLP agent on the windows side when operating systems are mismatched or there is an issue with a group policy. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. 

How are customer service and support?

The effectiveness of technical supports depends on the agent. Support from America is good because they immediately direct you to a person or department knowledgeable in your issue. 

For example, American support asks if deployments are new or old and then opens the appropriate case type which speeds up the process. 

I rate customer support a seven out of ten. 

How would you rate customer service and support?

Neutral

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup and implementation are very straightforward. 

Setup is very clear and much easier than McAfee or Forcepoint. 

I rate setup an eight out of ten. 

What about the implementation team?

We implement the solution for our customers. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution's pricing is based on a license model. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The DLP category is very competitive and we implement tools based on our client's needs such as the solution, Forcepoint, and Microsoft. 

What other advice do I have?

Competitive products don't even compare to the solution with regard to its capabilities. 

The only reason to choose another solution is budget because the solution requires licenses for the product and the database. 

I rate the solution a seven out of ten.

A stable and scalable tool that detects users accessing information from confidential documents
Pros and Cons
  • "It is a scalable solution...The solution's technical support was good."
  • "Symantec Data Loss Prevention's AI technology has certain shortcomings where improvements can be made."

What is our primary use case?

I use Symantec Data Loss Prevention since it is a product that is currently involved in an API-level integration with Google Chrome while ensuring that users get to avail some advanced features in the current version of the solution, making it an overall good tool.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of the solution is its OCR process for image recognition. Symantec Data Loss Prevention can extract all the data from the image. In scenarios where a user may be trying to get some screenshots of certain confidential documents, Symantec Data Loss Prevention will extract whatever data is included in that image, after which it may block the user who was involved in the act.

What needs improvement?

Symantec Data Loss Prevention's AI technology has certain shortcomings where improvements can be made. Some source code developer companies may have multiple source code data available, and our company may upload such multiple source code data, which may go up to 50 GB of data in Symantec Data Loss Prevention, and expect the AI part to look into what should be the confidential part in such a file so that we can create a policy in our company to manage what should be blocked or allowed.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Symantec Data Loss Prevention for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a stable solution. With Symantec Data Loss Prevention, I have never experienced any downtime.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is a scalable solution.

How are customer service and support?

The solution's technical support was good. The technical support team of Symantec used to take up cases or issues on priority.

How was the initial setup?

For Symantec Data Loss Prevention, my company needs to deploy a database from Oracle and add a detection server depending on the organization's needs. A company can proceed with either a two-tier deployment or a three-tier deployment. A database from Symantec needs to be included during the deployment process compulsorily.

The solution can be deployed in a day or two. Preparing the database takes one day, and adding Symantec's detection server takes around 30 to 60 minutes.

The solution is deployed on an on-premises model.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Right now, my company seems to be interested in Censornet's DLP product features.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend the product to those who plan to use it since it offers all the good features, along with a good GUI and user experience.

I rate the overall product an eight out of ten.

Great data matching capabilities, stable with file integration features
Pros and Cons
  • "An excellent solution for data classification."
  • "Different departments should manage administration, reporting, normalization and incident management."

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for exact and index data matching, vector machine learning and endpoint prevention. We can use USB, make the solution notify a block policy and make response rules. It allows us to add the directory indication, make the agent configuration from the DLP, and then enforce them.

We can also complete different types of single-tier, two-tier and three-tier installations. For single-tier installation, it can enforce or recommend detections servers on the same servers. For two-tier, it can enforce on the same server and the detection server. And for three-tier, Oracle enforced, and the detection server is on separate servers.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are file integration and optical character recognition. It is a new technology integrated in DLP. File recognition technology mainly uses DLP, and we can use encryption technology to integrate the endpoint detection servers. The solution also helps to integrate the cloud access service broker in the DLP console, and we can complete information-centric tagging. For example, we can tag the files as private or public and protect them on the DLP console. In addition, we can classify data according to the environments and handle the files per the policy created from the console.

What needs improvement?

Different departments should manage administration, reporting, normalization and incident management. For example, for incident management, escalation can be completed in a specific department, and we can notify a manager and send an email when an incident has been triggered. In addition, confidential files that shouldn't be sent as a CV are managed. A DLP is a confidential solution that cannot be used to send unauthorized organizations' data to others.

The previous versions had a flaw when we installed the agents. We can install the agents manually or by the SCCM and easily manage the database and incident services. We can make several rules if we have a network or endpoint. We can also manage dashboards and administrators, super users and view roles. The larger administrator that manages the activities and daily reports has access to the best access tools. We can utilize user roles for the view access tools and to make policies.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for ten years and are using version 15.8. It is deployed on-premises, and the cloud is used for network payment for email.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is very scalable, and there are no issues with maintenance.

How are customer service and support?

We can easily manage technical support unless we need clarification on a version of data or a task for principal clarification. I rate the technical support a nine out of ten.

How would you rate customer service and support?

Positive

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. First, we had to install the Oracle database, which requires 19C if you use version 15.8. Then, we had to deploy and make the info server. After that, we had to complete the Oracle and listener configurations and connect the database. We then had to install the Windows Server and add the detection servers from the endpoint server.

During the installation, we imported different templates in .VSP format. The solution allows you to make policies and procedures with built-in templates, and there are templates for multiple sectors, such as energy, banking, financial, and telecommunication. It can be downloaded from the portal during the installation of the Oracle added to the enforce server. We can make different policies like data matching, index data matching, vector machine learning, and desktop content matching. For example, we can use proximity matching to detect data for 70% matches, 50% matches, or 20% matches. We can also upload different documents for index data matching. Exact data matching is for structured data, and index data matching is for unstructured data. Vector machine learning is for positive and negative threats, and the threshold is set for that purpose. I rate the deployment a ten out of ten.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There is a perpetual license for three, five and two years. There is also a one-year renewable license for different parts. In addition, there are licenses for different consoles, namely Endpoint Discover, Endpoint Prevent, and Network Prevent. So it is an easy tool per the budget firewall and not difficult at all.

What other advice do I have?

I rate this solution a ten out of ten. Regarding advice, it is the best solution and has the best reputation. It is easy to manage and an excellent solution for data classification. It is the best solution I have ever used. We prefer Symantec to other solutions because their products are not difficult to integrate with a single console that is easy to manage.
