McAfee Network Security Platform Review

Great monitoring feature and timely detection of malware


What is our primary use case?

We use a lot of the functions this solution provides such as the firewall and the ability to check aliases. We can monitor and show the traffic that's moving in and out. When we detect malware, we scan for the virus on the PC and we can decide whether to delete or block the malware. I'm a junior product consultant and we are customers of McAfee. 

What is most valuable?

I like the monitoring feature where you can see all the traffic. 

What needs improvement?

It's a very good solution but we would like to have a simpler version. The management component could be simplified.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for six months. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is quite stable although in the latest version I've noticed that the network traffic can be quite slow. We have 500 users in our company. 

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is very good. 

How was the initial setup?

The deployment was a little difficult, I did it myself. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a nine out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
