Reccomendations for Security Software / settings that have minimal impact to Xpedition performance

Question asked by spoolin1 on Jan 7, 2020

Has anyone run into problems with corporate mandated security software that impacts Xpedition's performance & stability?


Currently we are running Symantec Endpoint Protection.  We are experiencing frequent half bandwidth or worse network performance, this leads to poor in-tool performance and frequent crashes.  We have found that the slow down is caused by a specific component of the Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) client called “Network and Host Exploit Mitigation”. That component inserts itself into the client network stack and monitors all network traffic.  Is anyone else using SEP?    Do you know if this component is disabled?    Is there a better alternative to SEP that maintains workstation performance?
