BUILT-TO-PREVENT

Multi-Layered Homogeneous ProtectionCheck Point combines signature-based protection and behavioral machine-learning engines to protect against known & unknown threats
comp round orang
Disparate ProtectionSymantec requires additional disparate and different products: 1. Endpoint, WSS(for URLF, Phishing) & Full-Disk Encryption. Each has different UI and policy.

WEB, FRAUD & PREEMPTIVE PROTECTION
comp round green
Prevent unsafe web usageCheck Point Harmony protects users from phishing attacks, unsafe URLs and delivers sanitized version of documents (CDR) by removing exploitable content.
comp round orang
Missing Key ProtectionsSymantec SES does not support phishing & CnC protection. URLF & Phishing are in a separated product (WSS) and CDR (content disarm & reconstruction) is basic as it is based on reputation

RANSOMWARE PROTECTION

VALUE FOR MONEY
Comprehensive Endpoint ProtectionSingle Bundle for it all
Harmony Endpoint offers all-in-one complete solution, including: Endpoint protection(EPP), EDR, URLF & phishing protection & FDE + media encryption
Pay More, Get LessMultiple subscriptions
Symantec full protection requires purchasing additional products on-top of the endpoint, for additional cost. That results multiple MGMT consoles and separate policies. That adds to complexity, additional man labor, higher TCO and it is all prone to errors (security wise)
