The central manager policy means we have almost all client modules in one solution.The most valuable features of this solution are the antivirus and the DLP.I really like the auditing component because it really looks at exactly what has happened on the network.If you set it up right, it can really manage a very complex environment which require fine tuning where there are a lot of exceptions. That's what it caters to. It can just do those specifics in those exceptional situations, which is good.McAfee is helping us to clean all of the viruses from the machines, protecting our desktops from the latest threats.We implemented data transfer protection, which allows transfer in one direction only. Users can copy from the PC to the USB but not from the USB to the PC. That way, if someone is carrying a virus on a USB, it will not be transferred to the PC.Their support is really good. I would rate it a nine out of ten. I have never any issues with their support. They always reply and follow our queries on time.

Cons
The room for improvement with Digital Guardian is that it will be better with the Linux agent because it is the only DLP solution for Linux workstations. It still needs to upgrade the agents to the latest version for the Linux kernel.I would like to see the workflow, to get all the rules and policies set up, be less complicated.

The detection aspect should be improved so that signatures are updated more quickly.The Virtual Patching feature needs to be improved.They have to do something to make the solution more resilient or recoverable from power failure events, which may include creating their own database.While there are bugs and a few functionality issues, it is just a matter of raising them with the support team. However, support is part of the problem as well. You want everything to be seamless in a perfect world, but the support is spread across different countries. They have Level 1, 2, and 3. Level 1 is most likely in a developing country. They don't provide the best service.McAfee should improve in terms of customer support and assigning a knowledgeable TAM to customers.It's a little bit complex to configure it, but when you start using it, it is much easier. There are many policies that you need to create, and in three or four placesThere are some issues relating to the automation of reports. That's why I wanted the DLP reports. There are some problems in this area. Sometimes it does not work even though all the configuration words are right. There are also some problems with automatic updates.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Digital Guardian has both, subscription and perpetual licenses, but I think when everything (all technologies) will go to the cloud they will only offer subscriptions.If I compare Digital Guardian with Symantec, the license cost is lower, but McAfee can be cheaper than Digital Guardian. It depends on how many licenses you plan to buy and how big the project is. The cost is not so high as Symantec, but not as cheap as McAfee. They can easily sell the solution for price.

This solution is priced in the mid-range.McAfee tries to package different things into different products, then sell them as different products with different licenses. They just split everything up into multiple things. That's just their sales pitch and how they do it.Compared to other Antivirus products, the cost of this solution is a bit high.
