Can rapidly disseminate attack information to all clients

What is our primary use case?

Primary use case: malware blockage. If you remember WannaCry, this system stopped it dead in its tracks with zero system failures. If you recall WannaCry hit on the weekend. I updated the rules from home on my ePO server and more than 200 machines were on during the weekend. When I checked the logs on Monday morning, at least 50,000 hits were registered in the logs with zero system failures. Its greatest strength is the DXL client which can rapidly disseminate attack information to all clients via the McAfee Agent instead of going through the ePO server.

Pros and Cons

  • "Its greatest strength is the DXL client which can rapidly disseminate attack information to all clients via the McAfee Agent instead of going through the ePO server."
  • "Make the ATD system a part of the whole product and take the whole thing onto the cloud. While it is there already, it is not to the same level as the on-premise version."

What other advice do I have?

Great data exfiltration and very easy to use

What is our primary use case?

This solution is our go-to for your basic antivirus scans. Most of the stuff that we have is standalone. It's all pooled from McAfee, we buy the license for whatever tool the customer wants use to use, and we install it on the product. I'm a manager at the company.

Pros and Cons

  • "Provides good exfiltration, and is an all-in-one product."
  • "Lacks remote capabilities not dependent on the internet."

What other advice do I have?

This is a tool that's well known and a tool that most people know how to use. It's easily installed and procured. I've never had any issues but we're a company that has a limitation on the amount of different tools we can use. There may be something better out there, but I haven't seen that yet. I rate this product an eight out of 10.
