Cons
"The detection aspect should be improved so that signatures are updated more quickly.""There is a problem when it comes to agent communication and duplicate records, where the rebooting of a machine leads to the installation of a new agent and you get a lot of duplicate records that ultimately affect your compliance monitoring.""There needs to be support for Mac computers. Currently, McAfee does not work on iOS.""The solution sometimes has some false positives on IP addresses, from the web control aspect of the product. This needs to be improved.""Lacks a single plug-in for multiple uses.""Sometimes agents hang. We have to reinstall the agents.""There should be more insights and completeness into the cyber kill chain, similar to CrowdStrike and SentinelOne. It just seems a little outdated in being 100% signature-based without all of the insights and protections that come with CrowdStrike and SentinelOne. Overall, they've got some catching up to do if they plan to compete in the comprehensive EDR space."

More McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator Cons »

"This product is very powerful but it is very complex, so making it simpler to use would be an improvement.""The enforce service is difficult to understand, and free courses made available on the internet would be useful.""We're not sure if there was an issue or a bug on the system recently because as of right now if someone sends out a compressed encrypted file, the DLP won't scan it.""I would like for the administrator management interface to improve. It's kind of old and slow. Updating it would make this solution better.""There are some features that are not available which are required by every data loss prevention solution.""It is very difficult to log in to create a support ticket because no one is available to support our queries.""Technical support is pathetic.""The solution is not user-friendly."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is attractively priced. It is a fraction of what we're going to pay for CrowdStrike or SentinelOne, but it only has a fraction of the capabilities as well."

"Pricing is reasonable.""The pricing is reasonable.""The price is competitive.""The price of the solution is expensive."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: The security is a key feature and the console is very user friendly.

Top Answer: I have found the most valuable feature to be partial enlisting.
Top Answer: Symantec could improve by being more creative and simplifying the functions. Additionally, the data protection should be bundled with data classification and labeling instead of them being separate.

Overview
McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) is the most advanced, extensible, and scalable centralized security management software in the industry. Unifying security management through an open platform, McAfee ePO makes risk and compliance management simpler and more successful for organizations of all sizes.

Keeping sensitive corporate information safe and compliant has never been easy. But today, you’re faced with a totally new set of data protection challenges. Sensitive information is leaving the safety of your corporate network as more employees share files over consumer cloud storage services and access those files on their own mobile devices. The number of targeted cyber attacks continues to grow, as cybercriminals develop effective new methods for defeating traditional security measures and stealing corporate information. And as all of these factors converge, it becomes increasingly difficult to manage corporate information and protect it against loss and theft. 

Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP) provides a comprehensive approach to information protection that embraces today’s cloud- and mobile-centered realities. With DLP, you can:

• Discover where data is stored across all of your cloud, mobile, network, endpoint, and storage systems

• Monitor how data is being used, whether your employees are on or off the network

• Protect data from being leaked or stolen—no matter where it’s stored or how it’s used
