It's fully scalable. There is no limit. Of course, the license limits per day the number of terabytes. In my opinion, it's very flexible.The most valuable feature is the ability to write rules and triggers for network communication, and then being able to investigate based on that.The most valuable features are its ingestion of logs and raising of alerts based on those logs.Their technical support responds quickly and are knowledgable.The most valuable feature is the correlation. It can report in real-time and monitor the management.It gives the ability to investigate into network traffic in the Net and the organization what we couldn't do before.

Cons
We cannot add new data sources to the most recent version.I would like to see improvements to the user interface.I would like to see fingerprint recognition included in the next release of this solution.The only issue I have with McAfee is the amount of computer resources that it takes... it's definitely impacting some of the other applications that are running on a computer at the same time.There are some banking and transactional cases that are local, South America transactions. I would like to see them add features that can be used locally, to make those transactions more reliable.I have to purchase a new box now. Its existing box is not scalable and I can't use it anymore.Product currently requires Flash.Update to user interface from version 9 is cosmetic in some aspects, and after a few clicks you are back on the old interface.

They should implement algorithms to digest that data and produce additional, more advanced reporting, alerting and support of internal security teams.The system looks like it is a mix of a bunch of different systems, and nothing looked like it was quite together.I'd like to see improvement in its ease of use. It's basically unusable. It's overly complex.The initial setup was complex because it takes a lot of time to complete the implementation.The implementation needs assistance.We have encountered issues with unresolved crashes.

Overview

McAfee Enterprise Security Manager - the foundation of the security information and event management (SIEM) solution family from McAfee delivers the performance, actionable intelligence, and real-time situational awareness at the speed and scale required for security organizations to identify, understand, and respond to stealthy threats, while the embedded compliance framework simplifies compliance.

If you’re relying on log data to detect and prevent cyber threats, you’re in trouble. Attackers increasingly evade detection of log-centric security and network monitoring tools. But logs combined with full packet, endpoint NetFlow data are proven to provide the essential details for early threat detection. Here’s a closer look at our solution.
