The user interface could be more user-friendly.We cannot add new data sources to the most recent version.I would like to see improvements to the user interface.I would like to see fingerprint recognition included in the next release of this solution.The only issue I have with McAfee is the amount of computer resources that it takes... it's definitely impacting some of the other applications that are running on a computer at the same time.There are some banking and transactional cases that are local, South America transactions. I would like to see them add features that can be used locally, to make those transactions more reliable.I have to purchase a new box now. Its existing box is not scalable and I can't use it anymore.
