What is our primary use case?
We are system integrators who do the implementation and provide support for a variety of products. One of our main areas of focus is endpoint security, along with data loss prevention, encryption, and web security.
McAfee Complete Data Protection is one of the security solutions that we implement for our customers. It is the best match for GDPR compliance.
What is most valuable?
The most valuable features are data loss prevention and encryption.
The interface is user-friendly and it provides a large number of options.
The support services from McAfee are freely available at any point in time.
Of of the features that I like the best is document tagging, where the user can specify attributes such as confidential.
The encryption group feature will ensure that the system is compatible. If everything is fine then encryption will begin. However, if there is an incompatibility then the encryption will be halted.
What needs improvement?
There is a feature called manual classification that is not intuitive to use and can be improved.
There was an option for SQL setup in the older versions of this product and it has been removed, but we would like to see it made available as an add-on.
For how long have I used the solution?
We have been working with this product for approximately 12 years.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
Scalability-wise, this solution is very good.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
I have experience with a lot of products from different vendors including Symantec and Microsoft. I find the other products are more complicated than McAfee.
How was the initial setup?
The initial setup is straightforward and easy to do. One or two policies have to be created and then it is ready for deployment. It can all be done within an hour.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
The pricing is better than that of some competing products.
