"It's good for large organizations. It's able to handle a lot of users.""The application and device control are valuable features, and the live update is another one. We have a schedule to check every four hours for the live update.""The solution is easy to use""Offers good antivirus and local firewall.""One of the most valuable features is its antivirus database, which is current and updated daily. Another valuable feature is its capacity to be managed by a single server. The solution is managed by a secure server, so all the endpoints are managed from a central point.""Its ease of use in deploying it and regular updates are most valuable.""The solution can scale.""It is good for detecting signature-based viruses, and it is user friendly."

Cons
"The support is very bad. They're not fast at all. Trend Micro's support is much better.""This solution clashes with Microsoft defender, which results in performance degradation on the machine.""They need to develop a more flexible product that can be scaled such that it fits well into a small business or a bigger, enterprise-level solution.""Could have better reporting capabilities and better support."

More Symantec Data Center Security Cons →

"The platform itself can be improved as there's no way to track how infections get into the organization.""We are not satisfied with the technical support.""There is no local support for Symantec products in Hong Kong.""They need to develop a multi-language interface.""It can maybe send notifications when there is an update and everything is successful.""We had trouble with the advanced features, such as the firewall builder and all the network protection modules. We were having a lot of issues because it would sometimes block users or the printing, or it would create issues with the network access resources.""More control features can be added, and its performance can also be better. Sometimes, the performance is not good when we access the cloud console. Moving to each tab is slow. The dashboard can be a little bit user-friendly. For some users, it is a bit difficult. If someone is a little bit familiar with it, then it is fine. Otherwise, it is hard to find policies in Symantec.""Every time an OS comes out, I have to upgrade the Symantec product. They don't know how to patch it. If they would produce a patch instead of uninstalling or installing over the current version and rebooting I'd be a lot happier with the product."
