Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Great monitoring feature.""The feature I found most valuable is the network threat analyzer in the security platform. It also integrates with GTI, or Global Threat Intelligence. Otherwise, I just use the basic features.""Overall the solution is very good. It offers great protection and gives us a good overview of what is on the network.""The initial setup is straightforward.""There's a good dashboard you can drill down into. It helps you easily locate intrusions and the source of attacks.""It has a lot of functions, such as firewall. We are administrators, and we create some rules to protect our network. We also monitor the traffic in and out and have disk encryption on-premises. When we detect malware, we scan for the virus on the PC. We can then delete or block the malware.""The solution can scale."

"Technical support is very helpful.""The most valuable feature is the SecOps because they have our back and they help us with the reports... It's like having an extension of your team. And then, it grows with you."

Cons
"Integration with Global Thereat Intelligence could be better. Also, I think management solutions are end of life now at McAfee. Network threat analyzer may be used for endpoint quarantines. Integration between these sides, as well as endpoint APO, will help you quarantine the risky endpoints.""The pricing could be improved.""The management console needs to be less complex and easier to navigate.""The management component could be simplified.""We would like to have a simpler version. Some settings and functions on the McAfee console are complex and complicated. I want the management console to be simpler.""Some of the documentation is not as straightforward as it could be.""The solution could improve some aspects of detection."

"They could give a few more insights into security groups and recommendations on how to be more effective. That's getting more into the AWS environment, specifically. I'm not sure if that's Threat Stack's plan or not, but I would like them to help us be efficient about how we're setting up security groups. They could recommend separation of VPCs and the like - really dig into our architecture. I haven't seen a whole lot of that and I think that's something that, right off the bat, could have made us smarter.""The compliance and governance need improvement."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: The pricing of the solution is okay. Licensing is paid on a yearly basis.
Top Answer: The system isn't fool-proof. Sometimes, based on the network or other reasons, McAfee cannot detect the actual attack. This rarely happens. It's only been the case maybe one or two times. The solution… more »
Top Answer: The solution offers one set cost and then the cost by agents. We're thinking of putting it on a few test servers and dev and a few servers in QA and then running whatever changes we have there before… more »
Top Answer: The compliance and governance need improvement. You can have rules that are HIPAA or PCI or CIS compliant, however, we're actually looking for a tool that would do that - something that would act like… more »
