Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"For the initial first level of support, we provide it from our side. If there's escalation required, we use Cisco tech for the AMP. And again, they are perfect. I mean, one of the best, compared to any other vendors.""The most valuable features of this solution are the IPS and the integration with ISE.""The simplicity of use is its most valuable feature. You can very clearly see things.""The stability of the solution is perfect. I believe it's the most stable solution on the market right now.""I am really satisfied with the technical support.""It is a very stable program.""The solution's integration capabilities are excellent. It's one of the best features.""It doesn't impact the devices. It is an agent-based solution, and we see no performance knock on cell phones. That was a big thing for us, especially in the mobile world. We don't see battery degradation like you do with other solutions which really drain the battery, as they're constantly doing things. That can shorten the useful life of a device."

"Anyone can use it, the protection is good, and they have all of the features.""The most valuable features are the adaptive tech on McAfee.""McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection is stable. We don't have any bugs being reported.""It has a very simple like multi-tenancy option and scalability is outstanding.""The new central console is better than the earlier one.""The initial setup is straightforward, not complex.""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 solution is broken down into different components from the portals. Web filtering, which is an added feature has been great for us."

"The feature I find most valuable is the advance search engine.""Panda Security solution has a feature to block any unknown process and that is what is best about it.""The patch management module is very important.""The most valuable feature is the web filter application control.""It's very easy to deploy, we don't have any problem or issues. It's most full automatic. It basically takes the assumption that everything is supposed to be a suspect; files, processes, URL accesses, and so on.""Their remote management (RMM) is very good.""The protection from malware is the most important feature. It has some endpoint information about the vehicle of the virus, malware, etc. It is also stable and easy to install, and they also provide good technical support.""The product so far has been good at protecting us. We haven't faced a breach."

Cons
"The solution needs more in-depth analytics.""In the next version of this solution, I would like to see the addition of local authentication.""The initial setup is a bit complex because you need to execute existing antiviruses or security software that you have on your device.""In the next release, I would for it to have back up abilities. I would like the ability to go back to a point in time to when my PC was uninfected and to the moment of when the infection happened.""The reporting and analytics areas of the solution need to be improved.""I would like more seamless integration.""The technical support is very slow.""I would recommend that the solution offer more availability in terms of the product portfolio and integration with third-party products."

More Cisco AMP for Endpoints Cons »

"Its pricing needs to be improved.""McAfee Endpoint Protection could improve the word control feature.""When it runs in the background of the endpoint, the devices get slowed down for some applications.""Support-wise they need to be better.""Sometimes, while installing the ePO, we were getting so many errors and I don't know why it happened.""The solution could use better updates and fewer bugs.""The initial setup is complex. It is a very complex product. You must have experience with it.""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."

More McAfee Endpoint Security Cons »

"I would like to see better data protection.""They need to expand their offering of add-ons to enhance capabilities further.""Improvements could be made in terms of how the reporting is structured.""The Linux installation is performed on the command line and they need a package installer for that operating system.""The gap between the two final conclusions is a problem, whether or not a file is known to be malware or is known to be safe.""The only part I really don't use as much is their firewall. It's a bit superfluous. Most people have their own firewall in place, so they don't really need that part portion of the solution.""It needs some improvements in the DNS security feature. Currently, it does not have full DNS security. It only has semi-DNS security, which can be improved. It is an important feature for us, and it would be really good if they can improve the DNS security feature. Our group has some plans to change to Cisco AMP, which has features such as DNS, Umbrella. We are trying to learn about Cisco AMP and compare it with Panda.""Occasionally, we suffer from little bugs that give us the wrong message."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The costs of 50 licenses of AMP for three years is around $9,360.""The price is very good.""The visibility that we have into the endpoint and the forensics that we're able to collect give us value for the price. This is not an overly expensive solution, considering all the things that are provided. You get great performance and value for the cost.""Whenever you are doing the licensing process, I would highly advise to look at what other Cisco solutions you have in your organization, then evaluate if an Enterprise Agreement is the best way to go. In our case, it was the best way to go. Since we had so many other Cisco products, we were able to tie those in. We were actually able to get several Cisco security solutions for less than if we had bought three or four Cisco security solutions independently or ad hoc.""In our case, it is a straightforward annual payment through our Enterprise Agreement.""Our company was very happy with the price of Cisco AMP. It was about a third of what we were paying for System Center Endpoint Protection.""There are a couple of different consumption models: Pay up front, or if you have an enterprise agreement, you can do a monthly thing. Check your licensing possibilities and see what's best for your organization.""The Enterprise Agreement is like an all-you-can-eat buffet of Cisco products. In that vein, it was very affordable."

"Pricing is reasonable and runs at a cost per user per year.""It is not that expensive. There is no additional cost. We got the entire bundle together.""The price of this product is good.""The price of McAfee is pretty similar to Symantec, and there are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""Its price is very high. It is higher than its competitors, and it should be less.""The pricing is great and licensing fees are billed on a yearly basis.""Since the maintenance is done by our own team, the price of the subscription should really be cheaper.""We pay 650 Rand for a license. It is a perpetual license which we normally run for two years."

More McAfee Endpoint Security Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Our licensing fee is 1M Euro per month, so it is about 80 Euro's per user.""Panda is cloud-only and comes at a reasonable cost. It is a set price per seat.""The price of this solution depends on the number of licenses that you are purchasing.""The licensing is subscription-based and priced well compared to other endpoint security solutions.""The licensing costs are not too high. We pay about 20 Euros a year. It's a reasonable amount to pay."
