Title: Symantec Corporation Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 vs. McAfee Total Protection for Endpoint Performance Impact on Microsoft Office Usage

Publication date:   12 September 2008
Document number:    208321


Symantec Corporation commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate the impact of two Enterprise class endpoint security offerings on host client performance: Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 compared with McAfee Total Protection for Endpoint. The Tolly Group installed Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 which provides anti-virus, anti-spyware and host intrusion prevention functionality in a single agent against the corresponding products in the McAfee Total Protection for Endpoint Bundle.

The Tolly Group benchmarked file “open” and “save/close” times, as well as memory usage on an unprotected Microsoft Windows Vista SP1 system and compared these with execution times on the protected systems.

Tests were conducted in July 2008.
