"McAfee is helping us to clean all of the viruses from the machines, protecting our desktops from the latest threats.""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.""I really like the auditing component because it really looks at exactly what has happened on the network.""The most valuable features of this solution are the antivirus and the DLP.""The central manager policy means we have almost all client modules in one solution.""From a single dashboard, I can take a look at several things including the endpoint protection, the file integrity section, the data activity monitor, and more.""The central management console is the solution's most valuable aspect.""The graphical interface of the solution is its most valuable aspect."

More Fortinet FortiSOAR Cons »

"McAfee should improve in terms of customer support and assigning a knowledgeable TAM to customers.""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.""They have to do something to make the solution more resilient or recoverable from power failure events, which may include creating their own database.""The Virtual Patching feature needs to be improved.""The detection aspect should be improved so that signatures are updated more quickly.""There is a problem when it comes to agent communication and duplicate records, where the rebooting of a machine leads to the installation of a new agent and you get a lot of duplicate records that ultimately affect your compliance monitoring.""There needs to be support for Mac computers. Currently, McAfee does not work on iOS.""The solution sometimes has some false positives on IP addresses, from the web control aspect of the product. This needs to be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Pricing is fine compared to other solutions."

More Fortinet FortiSOAR Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Compared to other Antivirus products, the cost of this solution is a bit high.""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.""This solution is priced in the mid-range."

Overview

As the digital attack surface expands, security teams must also expand their defense capabilities. Yet, adding additional security monitoring tools is not always the answer. Additional monitoring tools means more alerts for security teams to investigate, more context switching in the investigation process, and slower response times. This creates a number of challenges for security teams including alert fatigue, a lack of qualified security personnel to manage new tools, and slower response times.

Integrated into the Fortinet Security Fabric, FortiSOAR security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) remedies some of the biggest challenges facing cybersecurity teams today. Allowing security operation center (SOC) teams to create a custom automated framework that pulls together all of their organization's tools unifies operations, eliminating alert fatigue and reducing context switching. This allows enterprises to not only adapt, but also optimize their security process.

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) is the most advanced, extensible, and scalable centralized security management software in the industry. Unifying security management through an open platform, McAfee ePO makes risk and compliance management simpler and more successful for organizations of all sizes.
