McAfee Endpoint Security Review

SiteAdvisor and DLP have helped us to control the sites our users visit and the removable devices they use on their company PCs.

What is most valuable?

In today's IT environment, IT Security threats are very dynamic in nature. Every minute, new threat emerges. Every feature of the MEP suite, be it small or big, is very important. They complement each other and if one fails, my IT Security could be compromised and my organization might be at security risk. In short, every feature is equally important to maintain high level of IT Security.

How has it helped my organization?

While SAE & DLP have helped us to control the sites our user visits and the removable media they uses on their PC, at the same time, MSME has helped us to prevent the threat getting in our network via SPAM emails. The MEP suite has significantly helped us to mitigate the risk of getting malicious content in our network from various mediums.

What needs improvement?

They need to improve the anti-virus engine which, although fast and efficient, sometimes uses too much hardware resources. The scanning engine should be designed in a way that it doesn’t slow down the PC while it's running scheduled scans.
