McAfee MOVE AntiVirus Review

An effective security product that is lightweight and works well for virtual environments


What is our primary use case?

We primarily use this solution to prevent virus attacks from outside of the organization.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the security, which is very effective compared to other products.

The resource utilization is very low, not consuming the same level of resources as Symantec.

What needs improvement?

The dashboard should be improved, as a more user-friendly version is required.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using McAfee MOVE AntiVirus for five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable solution and it is being used 24/7.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We did not face any issues when we built up our infrastructure and increased our workload, so it is scalable. We have approximately 500 servers that it is deployed on.

How are customer service and technical support?

When you first contact technical support, they simply show you articles. It is only after it is escalated that a person joins the call.

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

Prior to McAfee, I had used a similar solution from Symantec. I found that it was much more resource-intensive, although it was more user-friendly.

How was the initial setup?

The complexity of the setup depends on the environment. We have multiple installations and in some cases, it is simple, whereas in others it is complicated. It took us between two and three months to deploy.

What about the implementation team?

We had a third-party to assist with the deployment.

We have two or three people in our company who handle maintenance.

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

The licensing fees are billed on an annual basis.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We trust McAfee and as such, we did not evaluate other options.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is researching this solution is that it is very good for a virtual environment. I have not found any bugs, it is scalable, and overall a very good product. My only complaint is about the user interface.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
