McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection Review

The VirusScan needs to improve in order to detect ransomware and other advanced threats


What is most valuable?

I would have said the VirusScan, but with the advent of ransomware, the VirusScan hasn’t been that impressive.

How has it helped my organization?

Initially, the DLP was very valuable for disabling access to USB drives -- but the need to get a code before granting exceptions made the management cumbersome.

What needs improvement?

The VirusScan needs to improve in order to detect ransomware and other advanced threats.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used the solution for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No.

How is customer service and technical support?

Quite unsatisfactory. Sometimes cases will last for weeks without significant progress.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Started with McAfee, actually, but now we have switched to another solution.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was straightforward as only one server was needed.

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

Pricing is fair.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

What other advice do I have?

I would advise to compare it with other players and ensure it can deliver, especially on the detection of ransomware and advanced threats.

Hi! Have a look at McAfee Endpoint Security 10.5.2 with the "mini sandbox" mode (Known as Dynamic Application Control) next time, this is a great way to control ransomware and block it.
