We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Its greatest strength is the DXL client which can rapidly disseminate attack information to all clients via the McAfee Agent instead of going through the ePO server."
"Provides good exfiltration, and is an all-in-one product."
"The good part is that you don't have to configure it, which is very convenient."
"Some of the valuable features on the email side are anti-phishing, anti-malware, and Safe Links."
"Safe attachments, safe links, policies, and the ability to protect from zero-day threats are the most valuable features."
"At the moment we are satisfied with this product. It's a stable, scalable, and resilient solution for us."
"I would say that 90% of the spam and phishing attack emails get blocked right off the bat."
"The risk level notifications are most valuable. We get to know what kind of intrusion or attack is there, and we can fix a problem on time."
"Does a thorough job of examining email and URLs for malicious content."
"Make the ATD system a part of the whole product and take the whole thing onto the cloud. While it is there already, it is not to the same level as the on-premise version."
"Lacks remote capabilities not dependent on the internet."
"We need a separate license and we don't know how to get the license that is required."
"There needs to be an improvement in integrating the product to work across multiple operating systems, and to have better support for non-Microsoft file types."
"In some situations, it has not been able to pick impersonated emails having no attachments. Technical support definitely has a scope for improvement."
"It would be better if it were more scalable. It depends on the architecture, but we would like to make it more scalable for both data centers."
"The custom alerts have to improve a lot."
"The visibility for the weaknesses in the system and unauthorized access can be improved."
"Configuration requires going to a lot of places rather than just accessing one tab."
"It's a user-base subscription."
"From the pricing point of view, like any other product in the market, there is scope for negotiation."
"Defender is a little bit more expensive as compared to others. We are in the manufacturing environment. So, we don't have a high budget for all of our endpoint devices. Its cost is a major concern for us."
