Pros: This software was added to my work computer as part of a company wide rollout. Working in healthcare it's important to protect the data that is taken off of our machines and put onto USB keys. The software might have a more broad use, but this is where I see it day to day. It protects the data unlike before where we could save to unsecure drives without any protection.

Cons: Moving a USB drive between computers can be annoying. It seems to always ask for a password even if you play around with the settings to automatically set a standard password. I've been in many presentations where the presentor plugs in a stick and can't remember their password and then has to log into email and send it to themself. It would be nice if there was a built in password reminder or "Forgot Password" ability. For beginner users or those less advanced, it creates some big obstacles.

Pros: The centralized manager that allows you to customize and config all agents for workstations makes this program out top choice for Anti-Virus software for our MSP customers. Updates and definitions are delivered on timely basis and easily installed.

Cons: Support is the only thing that is frustrating with this product. The support staff are nice, and pleasant but not the most knowledgeable on the issues. Usually takes a while to get issues resolved through support.

Overall: Sense of security, and user reassurance. Peace of mind and reliability for the users help to keep threats away and keep the customer data secure. having a big name like Symantec behind you for security allows you to be confident that your data is secure.

Pros: This is one of the easiest system to implement with just a few click and your are up and running. The instruction manual is easy to follow and it as all the instructing required to successfully install the server and client software. The client side installation is even simpler because the installer has all the configuration from the server in it. Speaking from an administrator point of view this system requires little management once deployed. The management interface is neat and intuitive.

Cons: The creation of the recovery dvd is a bit involved because you have to use Microsoft Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit.

Pros: It is incredibly easy to use, and more importantly it gets the job done. To this point (knock on wood), Symantec has spotted any potential intrusions and viruses within my organization and taken care of them immediately.

Then there is the price point, which is very reasonable for the service being provided, and the long established track record of Symantec and Norton.

Cons: Although the price is very reasonable, I'd still like to see some additional features included with the base software package such as email protection and web filtering. If those two things were included, Symantec Endpoint Protection would be perfect.

Pros: I like that it uses PGP encryption to safely and securely protect our laptops when out in the field from unauthorized use.

Cons: There's really not much to not like, but I would say maybe the ability to reboot with out getting the bootguard when you need to reboot remotely or something, is really hard and I haven't gotten that to work. So always needs someone on site if needed to reboot remotely to enter in password at bootguard.

Overall: Security through encryption on the disk that protects it from being slaved to another computer and the info accessed.

Pros: Protects the data on the company's laptops, no access to the hard drive .

Cons: With the upgrade of Window 8 to windows 10 we were unable for a period to encrypt laptops until a new version was provided by Symantec.

Overall: we ahve been using this software when it was a tool that came with Endpoint Protection Suite , the product is no longer a part of the Endpiont Protection suite, however we contine to use it

Recommendations to other buyers: Ensure that clients with this software use the recovery steps when the application is installed , this will result in left calls to the help desk .

Pros: Perfect antivirus that will keep your PC safe. Love to use this antivirus among others, and using it for more than 4 years. I didn't have any virus problems in my laptop up-to now. Recommended software.

Cons: Sometimes it will take more processing time, and when new windows is released, need to uninstall the old version and need to reinstall the new supported version. No automatic version update.

Overall: Really Happy with the service

Pros: Company has been using endpoint on all of our laptops. We use it in case a laptop gets lost or stolen since it's impossible to access the hard drive without having an encryption key

Cons: I cant think of any reason to not like this software it works as advertised

Overall: We used to use checkpoint as our preferred encryption software and it was not as full featured and secure as end point. So far it's been great

Pros: The product was extremely simple, and didn't take very long to setup. You tell it what parts of your hard-drive that you want it to secure/encrypt. It would take awhile to encrypt all of your files and data, but that's to be expected. There really isn't a lot required from the user. It just works.

Cons: Occasionally I would fail to recall my master password in order to decrypt files when I was logging in or booting my machine. That's more of a user error though.

Overall: Excellent product, and the name says it all.

Pros: I love how Symantec Endpoint Protection takes care of all of our servers and PCs from one central offsite website. I can manage everything from one spot accessible from anywhere.

Cons: We have some Mac endpoints. Symantec Endpoint Protection does not allow for managing these remotely. You can install the software on the Mac, but don't get feedback on the central management website.

Cons: Many annoying popups and very expensive. With windows 10 this product becomes a redundancy. Really only need this if you have issues with bitlocker.

Overall: Overall it provided great piece of mind and information reports about the endpoints. The encryption can also be achieved by using bitlocker but it not as intuitive to manage.

Pros: I liked that it actually worked and my drive was encrypted. The security that comes with an encryped drive is required in my field and this product did encrypt

Cons: The support is terrible. they are patronizing, condescending, and will not support you unless you purchase it. We did not know if it was compatible so they made up buy the software only to find out that it did not work on two out of our three systems. They refused to refund us because they could not find the charge and we needed an IT person to fix the problems it caused

Overall: my drive was encrypted, one of the three drives did work. With the encryption my drive was protected.

Pros: Ease of use. Tech savvy to basic users won't have trouble installing and running.

Recommendations to other buyers: KEEP YOUR KEYS AND PASSWORDS!!!
