McAfee Network Security Platform Review

Comes with a lot of functions and has good support and scalability


What is most valuable?

It has a lot of functions, such as firewall. We are administrators, and we create some rules to protect our network. We also monitor the traffic in and out and have disk encryption on-premises. When we detect malware, we scan for the virus on the PC. We can then delete or block the malware.

What needs improvement?

We would like to have a simpler version. Some settings and functions on the McAfee console are complex and complicated. I want the management console to be simpler.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for about six months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is quite stable, but we have some issues with the latest version. When we install the latest version, the traffic of the network is quite low.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. We have around 500 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is good. It is better than Symantec.

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

We were using Symantec. We switched because Broadcom bought Symantec, and their support was not very good.

What about the implementation team?

I implemented it myself.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. It is a very good solution.

I would rate McAfee Network Security Platform a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
