Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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.""The solution's integration capabilities are excellent. It's one of the best features.""It doesn't impact the devices. It is an agent-based solution, and we see no performance knock on cell phones. That was a big thing for us, especially in the mobile world. We don't see battery degradation like you do with other solutions which really drain the battery, as they're constantly doing things. That can shorten the useful life of a device."

"The administrative capabilities and the interface make this product accessible and easy to use.""The product provides us with an excellent, dependable solution to recommend to clients for their security needs.""The whitelisting works well.""The most valuable feature is the ability to control access to USB drives and other external devices.""The ability to block all USBs from the McAfee portal has been great.""The interface showcases threat incidents very well.""You can manage your compliance in line with legislation such as GDPR and POPIA."

Cons
"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 technical support is very slow.""I would recommend that the solution offer more availability in terms of the product portfolio and integration with third-party products."

"The pricing is high for licensing and support and the GUI interface is good but could use updating.""The product uses a lot of resources and because of this it is not always a good solution for every situation.""The solution needs an easier integration in heterogeneous and dynamic environments.""There needs to be support for blocking the sending of files by email because even if you block or remove an external disk, the files are not protected.""The solution needs to be a one-stop protection shop. And yet, the DLP isn't strong. Anyone can break it quite easily.""Technical support doesn't really offer fast response times.""Our client is not very happy with the lack of support, the skills, and the effectiveness of the tool."

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 pricing seems expensive both for the license and the support.""The price is high for this type of product.""If the client purchases the entire suite of McAfee Endpoint, the license is included."
