Head-To-Head: Symantec Vs. McAfee In Endpoint Protection


Email this CRN article

Bottom Line

Symantec continues to have a strong product portfolio and its mobile security platform has great potential, but McAfee comes out on top by the slightest of margins in CRN's analysis. McAfee has spent a lot of time attracting third-party technology partners to integrate with its central policy management console, the ePolicy Orchestrator. McAfee is innovating with hardware-based security technologies, and its endpoint encryption is solid. McAfee's channel program also appears more profitable, partners tell CRN. Symantec will remain a powerhouse for years to come, but the company has not revealed specifics on its strategy overhaul, leaving potential changes to its product road map and channel program unclear.
