Pros: Easiest way to achieve authentication through external devices

We can easily access intranet resources by using symantec

It has very nice mobile application which includes your credential id.

We can opt 6 digit code which we can use while loggin on different sites.

-Best UI

-Ease of use

-Best mobile app

-SSO cab be achievable easily

-If we try to access application which is stated at intranet then instead of code we can get push notification as well where we have enrolled symantec vip.

-we can use this for scanning qr codes and securely save your backup password in wallet.

Cons: cost is high compare to other competetiors at market.

Process for enrolment is long and confusing that should be easy and user can setup initial things quickly.

If your device got lost where you have installed this then there is process of deresgistering and then again follow the same process.

Pros: I like how quietly it works, I nearly never have to use the auto-generated code in order to validate my credentials, I like how simple it is and the way this app displays a very useful menu in a little square.

Cons: the app only gives you 30 seconds to copy the security code, when I change my passwords on my OS I also have to update the VIP access and go thru the validation process in order to receive the new code by phone call or SMS, instead of updating it automatically

Pros: Best mobile application and very easy for use for beginners as well as for non technical guys too.

Mobile UI and accessibility is it five star service and we can relay on it fully.

In our organization we can access intranet application using Symantec and which is best thing happened with us. It is very helpful and trustworthy.

Cons: Process for registering credential ID at first time. It is bit confusing and user has to enter ID which is exist in application. Symantec should provide guide for this and it is very much needed.

Overall: Earlier for accessing application which comes under intranet was not accessible - we have introduce with this approach which has 2FA and it was very easy job. We have achieved lot of things and remote access to many application internally.

Those application doesn't have SSP enabled we can enable 2fa for this and we can secure our data seamlessly.

Pros: It's a minimalist piece of software. I've experienced zero bugs with both the desktop version and IOS version with my physicians. Takes 2 minutes to setup and start working.

Cons: I wish it had an 'Always on top" function or a minimized function with the rotating VIP code. Our doctors use this all the time and have to tab back over or park it in a 2nd monitor, which is an extra click every time they send controlled substances using its 2 factor.

Incredible product!

Pros: Symantec VIP is a great virtual private network option for any device you use at home or at work. It downloads in seconds and getting set up is very easy. There are a lot of VPN offerings out there, and this one is top notch for not being considered overly expensive.

Cons: No cons at this time. Symantec has been doing security for a long time and can be trusted. No need to look further.

Pros: Best feature of this software is proximity unlock. You can skip old fashioned password typing method, just go close to Computer and unlock.

Two-factor authentication makes the system more secure.

Good GUI.

Cons: gives some hiccups in newer version of android, sometimes doesn't work in split screen. But these can be managed in newer version(didn't try). Overall good.
