McAfee Endpoint Security Review

The threat prevention feature is the most valuable because it provides protection against malware

How has it helped my organization?

The fact that the three components have been provided under one platform helps to simply perform product management.

Also, the virus definition file size is 40% smaller, which reduces the amount of bandwidth required to update all the endpoints.

What is most valuable?

There are three valuable components to Endpoint Security 10.1: First, there's threat prevention, which is for anti-virus and anti-malware detection. Second, there's firewall, which replaces the Windows firewall when activated. Third, there's web control which is used for endpoint web filtering.

The threat prevention feature is the most valuable because it provides protection against malware.

What needs improvement?

I would like the product deployment to be made simpler. The current deployment requires creating tasks to install each component.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The product is quite stable. We haven't had any issues with instability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is great. We've been able to scale it for our needs.

How are customer service and technical support?

Intel Security technical support is very efficient, although the wait times on the customer support line can be quite long.

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

I previously used Kaspersky. However, the management console does not match up to the functionality of the ePolicy orchestrator management console provided by Intel Security.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was very straightforward. The EPO server deployed the McAfee agent and then we were able to deploy Endpoint Security.

What about the implementation team?

Implementation was done through the vendor. My advice is to ensure all the requirements that are provided prior to implementation to avoid any delays.

What was our ROI?

The return on investment has been very encouraging. Ask the vendor to give you as much information as possible on all the suites so you can get a package that suites your environment.

What other advice do I have?

Endpoint Protection 10.1 is a very complete endpoint protection solution that gives complete protection for endpoints. It is easy to deploy and can be a very useful endpoint protection suite for small, medium, and large-scale environments.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
