With the recent changes in Symantec’s strategy, you may be concerned or confused with your current provider’s ability to address your security needs.

After Symantec’s partial acquisition by Broadcom, a part of the company’s customers have started to search for other security vendors, due to several reasons including diminished support for smaller businesses and end-of-life products. By leveraging an enterprise licensing model and focusing only on the largest Global 2000 customers, Symantec abandoned a large swath of its customers and is essentially letting commercial accounts churn out of their business.

Symantec’s enterprise security platforms – now a division of Broadcom – include endpoint security, cloud security, web security services, and data loss prevention (DLP). In general, acquisitions are disruptive to a company’s ability to adapt and to innovate; in this particular case, it might result not only in fewer products but in decreased support as well. Broadcom’s recent track record with enterprise software has not been encouraging, thus current Symantec customers are rightly concerned.

Data protection is a key security element

With today’s diverse and remote workforce, intentional and malicious data leaks and data loss are more likely to happen. DLP solutions are a vital part of every organization’s data protection arsenal due to the exponentially increasing amount of data as well as due to the security breaches that are making headlines every other day. Protecting sensitive data including Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and intellectual property (IP) is essential regardless of the size of the company or industry, thus organizations should focus on reducing vendor risks and increasing their data protection coverage.

Why choose Endpoint Protector over Symantec?

If you are looking to move away from Symantec DLP, Endpoint Protector offers a high-quality alternative. Endpoint Protector is an enterprise-grade DLP solution that protects both data in motion and data at rest, offers control of portable storage devices as well as encryption options. Our award-winning software helps to mitigate insider threats, protect sensitive data such as PII or IP, and meet the compliance requirements of different data protection regulations including GDPR, HIPAA, PCI DSS, CCPA, and more.

Here are some of the main reasons why you should consider switching to Endpoint Protector:

Plug and play data security

Endpoint Protector can be quickly and easily deployed, offering a smooth transition from your current DLP.  The server comes as an appliance, thus our solution can be up and running in 30 minutes. Endpoint Protector does not require advanced technical knowledge to run.
