455,962 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Its most valuable features are its scalability and advanced threat protection for customers."
"I am told that we get over 100 million emails a month. This filters them down and allows only somewhere about three million emails, which is a great help."
"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."
"It has improved my organization because it helps with visibility, in terms of security. We can see the actual attack and can contain it. The antivirus can detect that."
"The loss prevention feature would be the most valuable."
"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."
"The feature we found most valuable is the AI functionality for maintaining endpoint security. This is very powerful."
"The most valuable features of the solution include the endpoint navigation protection, the protection related to the EMS service, as well as the control and the cloud integration capabilities."
"It is excellent endpoint protection for mobiles that does everything it says it will."
"We've not had any issues with scalability. If an organization needs to expand, they can do so quite easily."
"Their policy management, their cloud-based dashboard and user interface are very easy to navigate."
"The initial setup is not complex at all. It's very straightforward."
"We would like to have an API integration with a SIEM solution, because as far as I know, it currently hasn't yet been released."
"I would like them to add whatever makes filtering more advanced in scanning and blocking for malware in emails."
"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 endpoint has room for improvement because it's restrictive, it's very sensitive. Sometimes it can delete something that you need and so sometimes you have to disable the antivirus."
"We have a lot of problems with the user experience and it's difficult to implement. MacAfee's better than the ancient anti-virus solutions but it's a little slow to resolve. Many files with malware were destroyed through the network, and MacAfee doesn't detect anything."
"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."
"We need to know more details about how the virus interacted with the computer."
"There needs to be more advanced analytics. It would make it a more powerful antivirus solution within the marketplace."
"It would be nice if it had a feature for automatically generating reports on the client end for device status, security status and backup information."
"Technical support is not the best. It's hard to get a hold of them if we need help. It's something that definitely needs improvement."
"Webroot is very reactionary. It waits until the threat is active within memory to try and detect it. They need better pre-execution detection and prevention."
"We need to have a stronger defense against CryptoLock and other attackers."
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."
"It's fairly priced compared to other products on the market."
"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."
"I can't recall the exact pricing, but I believe there is a monthly fee of $20-30 per user."
"The solution is pretty cheap, actually. At our level, which is at 2,500 endpoints, we're paying 87 cents an agent per month."
"The solution doesn't cost too much. It's about 30 Euros a year for each endpoint. It's pretty affordable for us and for many other companies."
