Pros: I've been a long time user of Symantec Data Loss Prevention and it has disappointed. It's a very solid solution that's easy to deploy and use.

I also like the simple and intuitive UI that makes using this product easy and user friendly.

Another feature i like is data insight. It allows us to full visibility into our data usage and permissions

Cons: The only downside is that it doesn't provide Linux support. I believe this is something that Symantec should try to tackle.

Overall: We use Symantec Data Loss Prevention to prevent data breaches at our various channels. As a result, we have customers that are satisfied knowing their data are safe and secure

Pros: The UI makes navigating incidents, developing policies, administration work, and updates all very easy. The ability to create simple to extremely complex rules is great to have. Utilizing the DLP solution as part of the mail solution was also extremely simple as well.

Cons: I wish there was a Linux client available. This has been the only issue I have ran into but there are work around depending on the reason for the need of DLP on Linux. I wanted to scan Apache logs, so instead I export the logs to a smb share for scanning.

Pros: The real value in Symantec DLP solution is what it can do and how users perceive the product. We use, a robust workflow, and a cloud console for cloud email DLP. Product works very well and is easy to use.

Cons: I believe that Symantec technical support needs improvement, time necessary to resolve the case is too long.

Great for protecting SMB's.

Pros: Very sensitive and does not allow any type of threat to penetrate if setup and implemented properly by an engineer. Best to buy this directly from Symantec and ask for an engineer to install onsite for an extra fee to ensure you are making the most of this.

Cons: If this software is set to update automatically then your computer will restart after the installation has finished, if you are unaware of this then any unsaved work will be lost. This is sometimes an overkill and blocks legitimate sites as malware.

Pros: What I like most about Symantec DLP is the ease of integration with other solutions such as cloud email and proxy.

Cons: Implementation of data loss prevention and rules for endpoints is far too complex than I'd expect. Another thing is the limited support for the Mac platform.
