Easy to configure, reliable, secure, and has good support

What is our primary use case?

We are using this solution to secure ATM.

Pros and Cons

  • "This is a basic solution; the policy screen is okay, and it's easy to configure."
  • "I would like to see better reporting and alerting features in the future."

What other advice do I have?

For anyone who is interested in this solution, you need to follow a procedure before it's deployed. It needs to be well tested at first and started with the most predictable environment, and then increase the number of deployments. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Has signatures for different kinds of protocols but the licensing model is confusing

What is our primary use case?

We implement this solution and we also use it. We get product exposure because we are the activation service.

Pros and Cons

  • "We also like the Change Control. We can control how things get executed. It has signatures for different kinds of protocols."
  • "The intrusion detection features should also be improved. It is a very good feature but it should be maximized."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend McAfee. I have used other solutions like Symantec Endpoint and this solution is better. I would rate it a seven out of ten. We have had issues with licensing. It's confusing. You don't get to choose the parts that you want. It is sold as endpoint control but also with other functions. If you want SQL, it's not available. There are elements that aren't available. They should have a single entity. The licensing model confuses the customers.
