Have you seen Symantec's one-liner? "Who is protecting your network?" From my experience with their products, certainly not them :-) They have a very good marketing team, few good products. Consider this for their business integrity: we order entire security infrastructure from them. their high end firewall was discontinued even before we completed an year. These high end UTM firewalls will not even support 20 concurrent connections once we enable UTM features. Does not support snmp or syslog. They will not renew our license because we are government entity (they had no problem selling) and US will not allow them to "EXPORT" a product key (not something that can start a nuclear war) that can renew our license. Their host IDS product was discontinued and replaced by another even before we recieved the media. They wouldnt give us the new product because we have not yet activated the other product.Their antivirus product will stay in your system and claim everything is fine untill one morning you scan the same PC with another AV and find out the system was infected.
This story is 2 year old.They may have changed. I can forgive but no way I forget.
