The solution is broken down into different components from the portals. Web filtering, which is an added feature has been great for us.When Intel acquired McAfee they worked on the protocol so that all vendors can work on the same platform. It's a very big improvement in McAfee. All McAfee products talk to each other. Other vendor's products can join this platform as well so it makes it more powerful on the enterprise side for McAfee.The initial setup is straightforward, not complex.The new central console is better than the earlier one.It has a very simple like multi-tenancy option and scalability is outstanding.McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection is stable. We don't have any bugs being reported.The most valuable features are the adaptive tech on McAfee.Anyone can use it, the protection is good, and they have all of the features.

Cons
If I were in an environment that required a large-scale deployment then I would choose another solution over ESET.Everything has some kind of room for improvement.I would like them to use AI features to do preventative virus protection.ESET should consider giving it application control.They need to improve licensing for VMs. When ESET is uninstalled from a VM, the seat stays on the license management server. We have to manually delete the seat from that server because it doesn't know how to handle it. I contacted exclusive ESET support here in Croatia and they told me there is no solution for this yet.

On the next release, they should build an easier way to see a repair option within the McAfee icon on your system tray. If there was an issue, you should be able to contact the user or just right-click on "repair". That would be a very good feature to add. That could be a place of improvement, just adding that button, or customizing it.The initial setup is complex. It is a very complex product. You must have experience with it.The solution could use better updates and fewer bugs.Sometimes, while installing the ePO, we were getting so many errors and I don't know why it happened.Support-wise they need to be better.When it runs in the background of the endpoint, the devices get slowed down for some applications.McAfee Endpoint Protection could improve the word control feature.Its pricing needs to be improved.
