McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection Review

My customers are always impressed by its central management, reporting, and options to do more. But, the policies and rules at deployment take time if you don't know the product.


Valuable Features

The central management solution by far.

There can be like a religious war between the large antivirus systems, but I do think that all of the larger competitors deliver good antivirus solutions.

The thing that separates them is:
- The way they are managed.
- The way they adapt to new threats.
- The products around the product that give you a higher value.

Improvements to My Organization

Every time I have installed this at a customer site they are most impressed by the central management, reporting, and options to do more.

Room for Improvement

Improvements are made all the time as the threats change.
I think the improvements on speed are the most important after actually finding the threats.

Use of Solution

I have used this or the predecessor to this since 2002.

Deployment Issues

The polices and rules take time if you don’t know the product.
This is not unique to McAfee and it's not really an issue.

Stability Issues

Not really with the antivirus part, but the application firewall and encryption can make functions stop working if not tested vastly before deployment.

Scalability Issues

No

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

10/10

Technical Support:

10/10 (maybe not tier 1 but every one after)

Previous Solutions

I have used F-Secure, Symantec, Kaspersky Lab and Trend Micro.

Initial Setup

It's all about planning and testing.
ePO can be complex but the antivirus is not that complex.

Implementation Team

I am a consultant.

Other Solutions Considered

I have used F-Secure, Symantec, Kaspersky Lab and Trend Micro.

Other Advice

I think that in the enterprise space, this is by far the best solution and not because the actual antivirus. It's because of ePO.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We're a partner.
