McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection Review

The most valuable feature that I've found most useful is the availability of seamless AES 256 full-disk encryption.


What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature that I've found most useful is the availability of seamless AES 256 full-disk encryption.

How has it helped my organization?

I don't need to worry about the content of a laptop if it's lost or stolen. It provides better security of laptops when doing foreign travel.

What needs improvement?

I think encryption needs to move to an all hardware-based solution. Software encryption is less efficient than hardware-based. Intel purchased McAfee a few years ago, so this company is set up from the chipset point-of-view.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've used it for six years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Initially, we ran into issues running full-disk encryption and certain versions of disk defragmentation software. However, this has now been resolved.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There have been no issues with the stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have had no issues scaling it for our needs.

How are customer service and technical support?

9/10. I've found technical support to be very good and responsive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We selected this endpoint protection solution due to its multi-platform support, not just Windows (e.g BitLocker). Other reasons were that it has enterprise key storage and recovery, which is very important to us.

How was the initial setup?

It's fairly easy to get going. It's been around for a while now, and there are lots of use cases. You just just need to follow the best practice installation documentation.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it with the help of a McAfee vendor team.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Everything has a cost. During the initial product evaluation, price was considered but it was not a show stopper.

What other advice do I have?

The central management console, ePO, is very useful. It incorporates file/folder encryption as well as encrypted thumb drive registration and policy management.
