Pros: Its continuous updating, to keep the files and disks of the company protected, as well as the email platform, is just great

Cons: Sometimes I notice something of slowness in the equipment of the company, I suppose that the database of virus is being updated or something like that.

Overall: In general terms, it seems to me that it is a fairly complete protection tool

Pros: Norton catches almost every type of virus that passes though its scanners. Deep inspections and advanced threat detection.

Cons: With those features however, It is a resource hog when scanning. I've found it to cripple machines while scanning.

Pros: It was installed very fast and efficiently, and it was very easy to purchase on their website. The information they provided about the software was very detailed and what it is capable of was all right ther.

Cons: Tech support was very difficult to reach, and when we did, they only pointed us to articles and how to posts, but would not actually support us or help us with the installation or use. We had to hire an outside consultant to install the product and make it work. unfortunately it froze our systems constantly so we removed it and our problems disappeared as well.

Overall: We did not benefit from this software. We tried to use it and even hired someone to help us use it and set it up properly, but it did not stop several threats and caused problems with many other software products on the computer.

Pros: This is a very good and useful addon to the SEP...It helps address the non-malware threats which is plaguing many organisations now. The sandboxing and EDR capabilities is great for simple forensic work.

Cons: You would need an in house SOC in place to really understand the report. Nevertheless it is still a very well positioned and priced product for simple root cause analysis to be done.

Pros: Symantec antivirus and protection is a great system. It does a lot and it does well. It's very smooth and easy to start with based on the default policies.

Cons: Like most systems once you deviate from the default configuration that's when the pain starts. The system configuration is a little cumbersome to get it right.

Pros: Installation is smooth and doesn't take a lot of time. Once you install the system is pretty much self-functioning and doesn't require much maintenance at all. It provides complete flexibility to the administrator (easy to build rules and control users and machine) and it's very effective in detecting malware owing to its Insight platform. Great management interface with simple menu. Customer Support is great, they have responded in time (at least for me), and also, automatic reporting at your hand whenever you need. Keeps updates to attack new threats. I consider Symantec ATP the most reliable software for detection and blocking of threats

Cons: Sometimes the software consumes a lot of CPU resources causing workstations to become unresponsive. Annual fees is somehow expensive when you have large number of workstations to be managed or if it is a small company.

Overall: I have been using this software for more than 2 years and found it most useful. Its management is convenient using a central console. I would highly recommend this product to any companies looking for enterprise protection

Pros: It protects both files, hard drives and the mail platform, keeps updated to counteract the new threats and simply works great.

Cons: There is not much that can be said about the negative of this software, sometimes it is perceived that the teams get a little slow, but nothing more. And the price is also a little high for small companies.

Overall: In general terms, it is a powerful protection tool for your company that is kept updated to combat new threats.

Pros: It is an easy program to install and use and is characterized by allowing us to activate and deactivate analysis options. It provides protection against viruses, spyware, malware and other Internet threats and protects various operating systems and devices which helps protect data, wherever they are. With a single subscription Protects multiple PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets, since it contains a license for 5 computers, at a very affordable price

Cons: Its database is not one of the most extensive, it needs additional modules for greater protection of the equipment, because if its database were more extensive Norton would be a very outstanding antivirus. Another problem with Norton is its renewal policies, since a new package is much cheaper, than a subscription renewal

Pros: I like it because it detects and repairs advanced threats detected from its control point, and it allows me to supervise with cross-detection at control points and search based on the environment. You can also configure a new Symantec ATP installation in less than an hour and start looking for attacks in a matter of minutes, all in an environment where threats are advancing, such as ransomware, backdoor Trojans, APT persistent advanced threats , so this tool includes a new service in the cloud with a testing area and elimination of the harmful load to detect and prioritize the most advanced threats of today.

Cons: Depending on the version can slow down the computer and sometimes suffers breakdowns and the autoreparación system does not run, as well as tend to delete downloads or files which causes some discomfort in the users and after the trial period only allows to acquire it by card credit.

Pros: Symantec is a well known established name. It preforms as expected without too many things getting in the way.

Cons: Symantec Advanced Threat Protection can be a bit expensive for some, especially for a average performer. Partly you are paying for the name. Found out the system was blocking some VPN software.

Satisfied with the product.

Pros: There is always new and growing threats of internet attacks and viruses, so it is nice that Symantec provides us with updated and advanced virus protection. It was incredibly easy to install and able to begin working right away. It has brought to my attention many threats that I previously was not aware of on my computer.

Cons: Sometimes you may receive a false alert, but I still would rather have the program working thoroughly and bring it to my attention.

Overall: The worry of threats and viruses to my computer no longer has to cross my mind.

Symantec is an excellent choice for computer security.

Comments: I guess Symantec Advanced Threat Protection works great. I haven't had any issues with malware or virus since we've starting using it at my company. No news is good news when it comes to protection. Once installed it runs on its own and we set it to update automatically. So far all things have been kept in check. No problems. So, that's exactly what I'm looking for in protection.

symantec has automatically deducted my annual premium for protection for 5 years!

Comments: It came to my attention when my computer was infected Nov 2016 that I did not have the symantec service downloaded after paying for it for the past 5 years through automatic renewal and charge to my credit card. When I spoke with the manager she said it was company policy not to refund unless a request was made within 60 days of the renewal. Do not do business with this company. They stole 89.99 for 5 years without the service!
