What is most valuable?

With this product, the performance of the database wasn't affected at all. In addition, it is easy to use, and you can define rules that protect the database beyond the built-in rules of the product… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The improvement is from the management point of view because, when implementing database security, you don't see any improvement in performance or productivity. The purpose of the product is to give… more»

What needs improvement?

Maybe a better GUI platform; that would make it easier to present information to management, so I would not need to fix the data before I present it.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I didn't use database security before this. I was protecting the data of the company with other products, not directly on the database. But when we ran into data leaks from one of the users, I… more»

What other advice do I have?

When you're searching for a vendor, first of all you want to be secure and comfortable with the partner that you're working with. The partner can see many vendors in the industry, and is working with… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I also evaluated Nyotron. I went with McAfee for the stability, that it's handled by McAfee and they are an experienced company.

What is most valuable?

With this solution, the device control is more reliable and more stable. We even use it for our email policies, but we are mainly using it in our environment for device protection policies. We are controlling almost all types of devices, like USB and CD-ROM devices, imaging devices, and even… more»

What needs improvement?

If you compare this solution with next-generation products like CrowdStrike, you will find that it should be easier to work on and therefore more user-friendly. With this solution, data protection is not straightforward. So McAfee should focus more on ease of management and user-friendliness. I… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others who are looking for a DLP solution, a data protection solution, would be to go for it. Along with the antivirus protection, I would definitely suggest the company to go for the next generation in antivirus or EDR or sensing technology which is currently more available in the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We use Email Gateway, but now we use a couple of McAfee products like the antivirus and DLP.

What is most valuable?

The McAfee Threat Protection and McAfee Web Protection are valuable aspects of the solution. They're better than other features that come with the endpoints.

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to reduce the number of false positives. There are too many of them. In future releases, McAfee Endpoint Protection needs to also include a module for mobile devices. If they do this, they should ensure the feature caters to both Android and iOS.

What other advice do I have?

I've been using the solution since 2005. We're partners with McAfee. I would rate the solution nine out of ten. For them to get 10, I think they also need to make sure they are still compatible with earlier versions of Windows. In this part of the world, in Africa, you find that there are companies that are still using the earlier editions of Windows, like Windows XP. They need to make sure they… more»

What is most valuable?

All features in this solution are valuable, but it depends on its function. It is capable of acting as Web control, Device Control, or Data Control.

What needs improvement?

I don't like this solution because it is difficult to manage endpoints, policies, algorithm engines, and products. We can't control how it works with Outlook or the browser. You can't control the application over the browser to Google Chrome, Google Drive, or OneDrive. It is difficult to manage… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is good, it's a low-cost solution.

What other advice do I have?

We are partners with McAfee. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What do you think of McAfee Complete Data Protection?

What is our primary use case?

I use this solution to protect my notebook.  This is an on-premise deployment that was installed by my company on my notebook.

What is most valuable?

I don't need to have any interaction with this product, which means that it is very, very good, and it is doing its job.

What needs improvement?

The price of this solution needs to be improved. This solution does not do as well at protecting the end-user against unknown viruses.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have never had any issues with this solution.

How was the initial setup?

My understanding is that it was easy to deploy. It was done very quickly, and I have not noticed any issues with the notebook since the installation.

What about the implementation team?

McAfee Complete Data Protection Questions

What is McAfee Complete Data Protection?

Sensitive data is constantly at risk of loss, theft, and exposure. Many times, the data simply walks right out the front door on a laptop or USB device. Companies that suffer such a data loss risk serious consequences, including regulatory penalties, public disclosure, brand damage, customer distrust, and financial losses. According to a Ponemon Institute report, 7% of all corporate laptops will be lost or stolen sometime during their useful life. The rapid proliferation of mobile devices with large storage capacities and often internet access is opening up even more channels for data loss or theft, so protecting sensitive, proprietary, and personally identifiable information must be a top priority. McAfee Complete Data Protection Suites address all of these concerns and many more.
