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.
