The Tolly Group compared the Windows XP client version of Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition 12.0 against security offerings from AVG, BitDefender, Kaspersky Lab, McAfee, Inc., Sophos and Trend Micro, Inc.

The Tolly Group examined system start-up time, the impact on Microsoft Office 2007, on Internet Explorer, on local and network file operations and on the time required to decompress a file archive.
