"Endpoint Encryption "

What do you like best?

This program protects all my equipment, making the handling of all my files and emails more secure, now with the implementation of the GDRP we have benefited with this tool, since users do not have to do anything while protecting the emails and files that we use.

What do you dislike?

At the beginning the administrative part had problems to get the exact configuration, it can be a bit cumbersome at the beginning to understand the simplicity of the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If the program is installed on a recent formatted computer, it is new in the files and programs you have, it takes less time to start it up, it happened with a colleague who had many files and spent a long time in being ready to work again.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In front of the implementation of GDRP, the company created a strategy where we had to protect the personal data and computers of the employees, this was done with this program, which has been a practical and effective solution.

"Great encryptation software"

What do you like best?

It's a great software to protect all your files in your personal computer. You just have to set it up once.

What do you dislike?

It takes a long time to encrypit the laptop and I have to follow a guide to do it, because we could not do it on our own.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recomend to everyone to install the software when you first purchase your personal computer. It will be more fast to set up and to encrypt all your data. Once you have it, you will not have to worry about all your files because they will be secured in your computer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Now the laptop of our workspace is secure and we have not to worry about the security of our work.

"Effective product"

What do you like best?

Endpoint Encryption works well. We have deployed it on all company laptops and it has provided needed protection for our data. It is fairly straight forward to install and use.

What do you dislike?

We have found that we cannot upgrade to a newer version of the OS on our laptops without unencrypting all of the laptops and then installing the newest encryption client. There is no easy upgrade option. This is much too time consuming for us to be able to do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to use the latest version of the agent and that you are using the desired OS as it is hard to upgrade.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Protection of our data. We have had several laptops stolen since implementation and this had protected our data.

"Great management, intuitive experience. "

What do you like best?

From an end user perspective the product is very intuitive and easy to use. Leaving minimal footprint to the ultimate end user experience. And the integration with BitLocker is excellent.

What do you dislike?

The management console on the server can be a little overwhelming at first glance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spend some time getting used to the management console, and understanding it's different components.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mobile endpoint encryption is being tackled by SEE efficiently. Due to the scale of remote and mobile working we conducted efficient endpoint encryption is paramount to protecting our, and our clients data. The benefit is that we can be confident in the knowledge that a lost or stolen device is still secure.

"Crack the Code.. Good luck!"

What do you like best?

Quick and easy way to encrypt local files and applications on my computer to ensure enterprise grade security on files that are sensitive.

What do you dislike?

Noticed a bit of a delay in the processing and opening of files once encrypted, but that is to be expected to some degree. Having a bit more configuration capability would be ideal for USB drives.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just understand that as files and applications become more secure, the timing for accessing these files and applications will be subject to minor delays.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Asset and file encryption certainly provides peace of mind for the company. Not to mention compliance requirements and definitions being maintained quickly and easily with Symantec Encryption.

i use symantec encryption for encrypt applications, files stored on the local hard disk and email encryption to protect sensitive data.

It is great for increasing enterprise security

What do you dislike?

I noticed a slowdown in disk performance, I see it especially in the transfer of files. encrypted files are more secure while reducing performance. in the past I have had problems in the configuration of symantec endpoint encription with vmware. the virtual network adapter should not be vmxnet3. otherwise it generates problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

an important feature is the management through Encryption Management Server to centralize the creation, distribution and management of data security policies and reporting

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have clients who have used it to encrypt external drives. they use it to back up the local PC. They are able to use them independently without intervention by the network administrators. It is very easy to use.

"validissimo sistema per la protezione dei dati"

What do you like best?

L'aggiornamento del database è quasi giornaliero. Riesce a scovare quasi tutto per la massima protezione. Il programma la oltre il classico antivirus. La facilità d'uso di questo programma è davvero notevole!

What do you dislike?

Come programma è un po pesantuccio. Ho notato inoltre che ci sono abbastanza limitazioni nella gestione di periferiche esterne come memorie flash , pen drive , hardisk usb etc... questo aspetto andrebbe un po migliorato!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Di gran lunga superiore agli altri programmi concorrenti per la sicurezza dei dati.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Beh con un ottimo programma per la protezione dati si sta molto più tranquilli! Ci sono tanti altri programmi della Symantec che ho usato e sono sempre rimasto soddisfatto!

What do you like best?

The management of encrypted assets have been easy (knock on wood). The biggest challenge is providing Whole disk discovery tokens to users who forgot there password.

Needs to be more granular when it comes to managing external storage devices such as usb drives.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great product that will provide encryption for multiple scenarios. Definitely worth evaluating.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The encryption on assets have help provide a piece of mind in multiple situations of assets being lost or stolen.

"Symantec Endpoint Encryption 11"

What do you like best?

The user experience and the robust combination of PGP and SEE to make SEE 11 has been outstanding. I hope to see Fileshare encryption and Command Line added into SEE 11 in the future.

What do you dislike?

The limitation of GPO for Removable Media encryption and the multiple installation packages needed to get everything installed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I found the following video on Symantec Connect very helpful.

"Excellent Security Suite"

What do you like best?

The full suite has e-mail, file and whole disk encryption. These are excellent features that are often underused, but can prevent data loss.

What do you dislike?

It is very costly, and there are many free tools that do the same things.

Recommendations to others considering the product

PGP is great, it is a standard with organizations, but the cost can be overwhelming (especially for individuals).
