The most valuable feature of this solution is its reliability.

The solution does what it's meant to do.
It has dependable anti-malware and intrusion prevention features all-in-one package.
The most valuable is the blocking of blacklisted sites, a URL that is, either by intelligence or by McAfee, detected as a malicious site.
It's a solution that permits making a granular configuration and it is easier to deploy the same configuration on a lot of devices using the central console. It is the master of the product.
The most valuable feature of this solution is that it protects against threats that are coming from the web.
The most valuable feature is the ease in the configuration for security roles.
The reporting could be improved by way of the information that's displayed. For example, when you pull a report, it shows an internal employee going to many websites, but you can spin that right down by saying a lot of it is being cached.
I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future.
This solution does not give us full, 360-degree protection.
It would be useful if they had a malware protection engine running inside their own VM.
I would like to see a graphical representation of the entire network.
Support for multiple domains is important to us.
I would like to see DLP integration in the next release of this solution.
Security, overall, can always be improved.
Setup is not that difficult, but it really requires proper technical training.
Lacking filter for spam.
The manufacturerers should have more transparancy about exactly what is getting filtered when you use the product and why.
We used a consultant to help us set it up. Unfortunately, he was not that good. They were out of McAfee people. He was a consultant and knew the product, but he was not a McAfee person. How they managed it and how they worked was not straightforward.
The configuration could be simplified because it is more complex to make the configuration on McAfee. What can be improved is the support of the agent on smartphones, IOS or Android. That still now is not available yet.
The solution should be more proactive in regards to sending you updates.
We need a better customer experience and more flexibility in the product.
