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

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

Cons
I would like this solution to do what Palo Alto traps does because I would only need to run this one product.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.The initial setup is complex. It is a very complex product. You must have experience with it.The solution could use better updates and fewer bugs.Sometimes, while installing the ePO, we were getting so many errors and I don't know why it happened.Support-wise they need to be better.When it runs in the background of the endpoint, the devices get slowed down for some applications.McAfee Endpoint Protection could improve the word control feature.
