Strong IDS solution, easy deployment, coverage across multiple platforms with at-a-glance dashboard and many more...
Nice interface, feature-rich, and the technical support is helpful, but spinning disk performance needs to improve
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Its most valuable features are its scalability and advanced threat protection for customers."
"I am told that we get over 100 million emails a month. This filters them down and allows only somewhere about three million emails, which is a great help."
"For the initial first level of support, we provide it from our side. If there's escalation required, we use Cisco tech for the AMP. And again, they are perfect. I mean, one of the best, compared to any other vendors."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the IPS and the integration with ISE."
"The simplicity of use is its most valuable feature. You can very clearly see things."
"The stability of the solution is perfect. I believe it's the most stable solution on the market right now."
"I am really satisfied with the technical support."
"It is a very stable program."
"With this solution, the device control is more reliable and more stable."
"I don't need to have any interaction with this product, which means that it is very, very good, and it is doing its job."
"It is capable of acting as Web control, Device Control, or Data Control."
"The McAfee Threat Protection and McAfee Web Protection are valuable aspects of the solution. They're better than other features that come with the endpoints."
"In the configuration, you can restrict a user from accessing a removable drive."
"The interface is very good. You can create and manage your own dashboard."
"With McAfee Complete Data Protection, you can managed all your security solutions from one single server and one interface. This might be the most powerful advantage of McAfee's solution."
"The server software console is exquisitely designed and organized for handy access and manipulation by the administrator."
"We would like to have an API integration with a SIEM solution, because as far as I know, it currently hasn't yet been released."
"I would like them to add whatever makes filtering more advanced in scanning and blocking for malware in emails."
"The solution needs more in-depth analytics."
"In the next version of this solution, I would like to see the addition of local authentication."
"The initial setup is a bit complex because you need to execute existing antiviruses or security software that you have on your device."
"In the next release, I would for it to have back up abilities. I would like the ability to go back to a point in time to when my PC was uninfected and to the moment of when the infection happened."
"The reporting and analytics areas of the solution need to be improved."
"I would like more seamless integration."
"The solution should be more user-friendly."
"This solution does not do as well at protecting the end-user against unknown viruses."
"It is difficult to manage."
"The solution needs to reduce the number of false positives. There are too many of them."
"I want simplicity. A new user opening the dashboard will be confused. It needs to be more user-friendly."
"The refresh feature needs improvement. You need to refresh it manually yt going to the address bar, clicking on it and pressing enter, or pressing F5. There should be a button you can click on to refresh or have it so every five seconds it's refreshing."
"The product consumes too much RAM and CPU for its processing and this can lead to resource issues on PCs."
"I would like to have an easier and less-hassle upgrade process in future releases of the software, and extra license renewal price discounts too."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"The costs of 50 licenses of AMP for three years is around $9,360."
"The price is very good."
"The visibility that we have into the endpoint and the forensics that we're able to collect give us value for the price. This is not an overly expensive solution, considering all the things that are provided. You get great performance and value for the cost."
"Whenever you are doing the licensing process, I would highly advise to look at what other Cisco solutions you have in your organization, then evaluate if an Enterprise Agreement is the best way to go. In our case, it was the best way to go. Since we had so many other Cisco products, we were able to tie those in. We were actually able to get several Cisco security solutions for less than if we had bought three or four Cisco security solutions independently or ad hoc."
"In our case, it is a straightforward annual payment through our Enterprise Agreement."
"Our company was very happy with the price of Cisco AMP. It was about a third of what we were paying for System Center Endpoint Protection."
"There are a couple of different consumption models: Pay up front, or if you have an enterprise agreement, you can do a monthly thing. Check your licensing possibilities and see what's best for your organization."
"The Enterprise Agreement is like an all-you-can-eat buffet of Cisco products. In that vein, it was very affordable."
"The price of this solution needs to be improved."
"The price is good, it's a low-cost solution."
"This solution is reasonably priced."
"The pricing is better than that of some competing products."
"The pricing of the cloud offering seems confusing."

Sensitive data is constantly at risk of loss, theft, and exposure. Many times, the data simply walks right out the front door on a laptop or USB device. Companies that suffer such a data loss risk serious consequences, including regulatory penalties, public disclosure, brand damage, customer distrust, and financial losses. According to a Ponemon Institute report, 7% of all corporate laptops will be lost or stolen sometime during their useful life. The rapid proliferation of mobile devices with large storage capacities and often internet access is opening up even more channels for data loss or theft, so protecting sensitive, proprietary, and personally identifiable information must be a top priority. McAfee Complete Data Protection Suites address all of these concerns and many more.
