McAfee Advanced Threat Defense Review

The features I find most valuable are: management, remediation of threats and successful threat detection.


What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for protection of server and desktop workstations.  

What is most valuable?

The features I find most valuable are: the management, the ability for automatic remediation of threats and it can successfully detect a threat, and to act upon it.

What needs improvement?

I think maybe a simpler interface might help. And a better integration with the active directory and to integrate with directory services.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable. I do not have any system items that I need to take care of. 

How is customer service and technical support?

Technical support was helpful for what I needed.  

How was the initial setup?

It was not complex, but there are things to look out for, because it's an intense product. It scans intensely. And there are major obstacles to overcome if it scans while users are using a network, then it is not a good thing. And they should emphasize it more. It would be nice if they could try to have it a little more lightweight. For, it is interfering.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

This wasn't my first choice, but I ended up choosing it. I have previous experience with Symantec Advanced Threat Protection.
