We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The technical support is really terrific."
"In Digital Guardian, they have the cloud correlation servers that give you visibility work like EBR and the correlation server works very well for security analysis."
"It can scale from 100 to 10,000. There's no problem with the scalability."
"The feature we call desktop recording is the most valuable aspect of the solution. Not only can we collect data from the user's usage, but we also capture his screenshots when he is trying to steal the data."
"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."
"I would like to see the workflow, to get all the rules and policies set up, be less complicated."
"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."
"There are a lot of issues with the current version of the Endpoint agent. It's not stable, it's resource-consuming, and there are some performance issues. If they could improve the stability of the agent it would be great."
"Some features on Mac and Linux are not complete currently. For example, some device control features haven't been transferred over to the other systems. If they could have their Windows features also available on Mac and Linux, that would be perfect. Some of our customers have a Mac environment for their RD environment. Having the solution fully capable of handling everything in a Mac environment is crucial."
"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."
"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."
"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."
