Cons
"The pricing is high for licensing and support and the GUI interface is good but could use updating.""The product uses a lot of resources and because of this it is not always a good solution for every situation.""The solution needs an easier integration in heterogeneous and dynamic environments.""There needs to be support for blocking the sending of files by email because even if you block or remove an external disk, the files are not protected.""The solution needs to be a one-stop protection shop. And yet, the DLP isn't strong. Anyone can break it quite easily.""Technical support doesn't really offer fast response times.""Our client is not very happy with the lack of support, the skills, and the effectiveness of the tool."

"The agent can be improved on the solution. Right now, we have an Endpoint Protection agent as well as an encryption agent and another for the DLVs and other services. We would prefer a single agent for the entire product.""I think that they should improve the on-premises version to include the manageability and simplicity that is available on the cloud.""If for example, a user forgets the endpoint key, they cannot access their data. We need a support team that is a single point of contact for the IT entity to be trained and to have documentation for troubleshooting and managing the solution.""The program's disk encryption is not very friendly with Microsoft OS updates. We have a problem with updates failing unless we use a time-consuming work-around.""The instability of the company and lack of presence in the Middle East is affecting product use.""I do not find the environment to be very user-friendly.""More features need to be included in the encryption software.""The solution does slow down the device a little bit, once it's installed."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing seems expensive both for the license and the support.""The price is high for this type of product.""If the client purchases the entire suite of McAfee Endpoint, the license is included."

"They have two solutions for encryption including Symantec Endpoint Encryption and PGP Endpoint Encryption. With one PGP license, you can deploy the two solutions. The PGP license gives you two options.""Depending on how many modules you will use (up to five) the licensing will be more expensive.""The pricing is fair but there is variability in our area that needs to be addressed.""The cost of this solution is a little on the higher side.""The license is not very expensive."
