Symantec Endpoint Security, New Anti Virus from Symantec

I’m a loyal customer of Symantec Anti Virus product, it serve me well for the last 7 years.

Now, from my consultant, I’m being told that Symantec, again, releasing a new product for security called Symantec Endpoint Security. Symantec Endpoint Security will be replacing Symantec Anti Virus Corporate Edition 10.

Why security, why not Anti Virus? Because it’s more than Anti Virus, it have:

  • Anti Virus
  • Anti Spyware
  • Firewall
  • and Intrusion Prevention

You can download a trial version of Symantec Endpoint Security in here.

This is a good news, that meant that Symantec is trying to do their best to improve their security product to protect their customer.

But, this is also a bad news for me. Why? Because I need to migrate to existing Symantec Anti Virus CE 10 to the new Symantec Endpoint Security. And that, will be NOT an easy job.

There are three version of Symantec Endpoint Security:

  1. Symantec Endpoint Security pdf
  2. Symantec Endpoint Security Small Business Edition pdf
  3. Symantec Multi-tier Protection pdf

What suprise me that, in Symantec Endpoint Security Small Business Edition they have Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange, but Lotus Domino.

Why, I’m not sure. Symantec Mail Security for Domino only exist in Symantec Multi-tier Protection.

If you using Lotus Domino, and want to use Symantec product, than you need yo buy the most expensive product which is Symantec Multi-tier Protection, and if you use MS Exhange you can buy more cheaper product.

Now, again, I need to learn how to migrate our Anti Virus or Security software and I hope that the new software will perform better than the previous one.

Cross my fingers, and moving forward.
