McAfee Endpoint Security Review

Good DLP but offers problematic encryption


What is most valuable?

I have found DLP to be a valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

When it comes to DLP or McAfee Security Encryption, with which I am happy, I like to make use of the solution for Vault, but find that the encryption is problematic. The system needs reforming. Suppose the solution is utilized on a laptop or desktop and the client wishes to make an assignment to another person but forgot his password. The data cannot be archived or backed up. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using McAfee Endpoint Security for the past five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is reliable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Previously, I used the solution for a single site consisting of nearly 300 users. However, as I found it to also be a good tool for DLP endpoint, I now use it for another client with nearly 700 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

Counting from one to ten, this being the highest, I fully support the solution's technical services.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very simple, allowing a person to get the videos or documents on the internet. 

The deployment takes one to two days.

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

I do licensing on an annual basis and this is what I always recommend to my clients over the monthly option. This is because all my clients are long-term and do not wish to pay on a monthly basis, instead preferring licenses of, perhaps, three years with an additional one or two year option. 

What other advice do I have?

I am using the latest version of the solution minus one. 

Some of our clients deploy the solution on-premises and others use clouds, such as AWS or IBM Cloud. I'm actually a service partner with IBM Cloud and the community manager with AWS Cloud.

We currently have two or three clients utilizing the solution and it can be said that it is a good product. 

The solution is really good and competitively priced, so someone wishing to secure his enterprise or make use of it in an inexpensive fashion should do so. 

I would rate it a seven out of ten.
