For a long time I've been thinking about researching Malwarebytes VS Symantec SEPM for our environment and my first step is asking all of you what you think about these two different products and if anyone has ever ditched Symantec for Malwarebytes?
I use SEPM with about 40 servers and 150 clients and I've had problems over the last couple of years where not only would malwarebytes find the virus but also delete it whicle symantec cant even find it. A few months ago we got hit with a virus and I opened a support ticket with symantec and we spent about 2 weeks trying to get rid of this virus on a few users machines, the virus would actually rename its self and hide which would make it difficult to detect. Symantec support even gave me RapidRelease Defiitions that didnt work, they even gave me some tool that they promised would get rid of it, it didnt.
I just removed a spyware\virus today with the free version of malwarebytes that symantec didnt even detect on the client.
So, with all this said, why are we paying for a full version client with all the overhead of a symantec product that doesnt do a decent job that it should be doing? Why dont I just use the paid version of malwarebytes and go with that?
Have any of you tested the difference between the two, any major differences to consider before switching?
