Daniel ColombaniLead: Incident Response, Investigation & Vulnerability Management at a government
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It's a solution that permits making a granular configuration and it is easier to deploy the same configuration on a lot of devices using the central console. It is the master of the product."
"The most valuable is the blocking of blacklisted sites, a URL that is, either by intelligence or by McAfee, detected as a malicious site."
"It has dependable anti-malware and intrusion prevention features all-in-one package."
"The solution does what it's meant to do."
"The solution is not too expensive. It's affordable."
"It is very stable."
"The configuration could be simplified because it is more complex to make the configuration on McAfee. What can be improved is the support of the agent on smartphones, IOS or Android. That still now is not available yet."
"We used a consultant to help us set it up. Unfortunately, he was not that good. They were out of McAfee people. He was a consultant and knew the product, but he was not a McAfee person. How they managed it and how they worked was not straightforward."
"The manufacturerers should have more transparancy about exactly what is getting filtered when you use the product and why."
"Lacking filter for spam."
"The solution could always use more security features. If it was more secure, it would be an even stronger product."
"Malware, scanning, capture, and integration should be included with the content filtering."
"$150 Canadian per year."
"Licensing is on a yearly basis and the pricing is very reasonable."
