McAfee Endpoint Security Review

Good reporting, and we are happy with technical support and the price


What is our primary use case?

We use this product for our endpoint security.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are:  

- reporting facility using the ePO console for conformity and threat identification  

- using the advanced threat protection (ATP) 

- MNE module for customising and securing Windows Bitlocker.

What needs improvement?

We know that McAfee isn't the best antivirus and it can't protect us 100%, although we are okay with the level of protection that it gives us. I don't think that the problem lies in the antivirus, but rather, it's the user. Users are not happy with the antivirus and they try to solve the issue on their own, and that causes very big problems.

The is an incompatibility problem between Mcafee and Linux subsystem for Windows, another that has to do with Outlook and scripts. McAfee knows that, but the problem can't be solved at this time so we try to minimize the effect.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using McAfee Endpoint Security for ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In terms of stability, we haven't had many problems.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We use that solution for more that 10k station and servers, and we have space to grow...

How are customer service and technical support?

The support that we get from McAfee is excellent.

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

We tried Bitdefender, F-Secure, and many other products before settling on McAfee. When our central agency switched to McAfee, we all adopted it.

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

The price of this product is good.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

One of our subsidiaries has tried to switch products, although I don't know the reason why. Ultimately, the project was aborted.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is looking at McAfee Endpoint Security is simply to use it.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
