More Symantec End-User Endpoint Security Pros »

"They could try to introduce advanced threat detection.""The advanced threat protection is not as good as our competitors.""It's an expensive solution.""The dashboard should be improved, as a more user-friendly version is required.""They could improve the monitoring and classification of the data features.""Sometimes, the updates don't happen successfully. The updates start, but they are not completed. Let's say there is a process that runs on the server-side every night, and it pushes the updates. Sometimes, these updates fail. I'm not sure whether it is a McAfee's problem or an internal problem with our systems. If this is really an issue with McAfee MOVE AntiVirus, McAfee can work on it and improve it in the next release. If it is an internal issue, I need to figure out why it is happening within the organization. We may need to take some technical support from McAfee to see what the problem is and then we need to get it fixed. At this point in time, all I know is that it happens sometimes.""This solution is okay for users who are just office personnel. Developers or users who heavily use their laptops complain that it really slows down their laptops. Using this solution can be a big challenge from the performance perspective if you need a productive system that locally runs multiple VMs.""I would like to see more emphasis on cybersecurity in the next release."

More McAfee MOVE AntiVirus Cons »

"If Symantec wants to improve, they should have a single event for all their products.""The overall quality of the product needs to be improved because with the last session we had several issues with new versions. Also, the solution needs better protections.""If you're not charged with administering the product and you don't do it every day it can sometimes be difficult to remember how to do the simple basic things, so some type of help or guidance for your most regular or frequent tasks would be good.""The detection and response can always be improved.""Reporting in this solution needs improvement.""The reporting function needs to be more user friendly in general.""The Centralized Management could be improved.""It is only available to use on computers with higher-end specs."
