More Micro Focus Voltage SecureData Enterprise Pros »

"The encryption feature is very good.""Their cloud features such as Cloud Endpoint security, ransomware modules, malware, and other modules are very effective.""We can extend it to all of the critical endpoints and the servers, and we can ensure the confidentiality of the data.""The most valuable features are the messaging features and shared folders.""This product is a solid, all-in-one solution for enterprise data management.""The most valuable feature is that it works in the background so that the end-users are not aware of what is happening on the laptop.""You get updates and other encrypted files easily.""The solution is great for large-scale deployments."

Cons
"For a future release, the interface looks a bit dated and could be improved."

More Micro Focus Voltage SecureData Enterprise Cons »

"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."

More Micro Focus Voltage SecureData Enterprise Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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."
