Gives accessibility to either allow or block many preferences on a machine and does a good job of protecting against any data loss
What is most valuable?Often the customers have requirements where we need to provide them with endpoint DLP (Data Loss Prevention) solutions. McAfee's DLP is a very good product. It gives you accessibility to either allow or block many preferences on a machine and does a good job of protecting against any data loss. This… more»
What needs improvement?The improvement that I think most needs to be addressed is a claim from many customers that I receive all the time. They say that the product consumes too much RAM and CPU. It makes clones in the machine and that eats up resources. It makes the clone as long as it is running on the machine. The… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Because we deploy for clients, we work with a variety of solutions in order to meet their needs. While I am working mostly with McAfee solutions, I'm also very familiar with the broader classification of security solutions. I have worked with various PAM (Privileged Access Management) solutions. I… more»
What other advice do I have?The advice I have for people considering this type of security solution is not to listen to what all the companies advertise. You can see bad reviews, maybe good reviews as well, but you need to use that information from the reviews as a starting point for your own observations and not just believe… more»

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.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I 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.

Nice interface, feature-rich, and the technical support is helpful, but spinning disk performance needs to improve
What is most valuable?The most valuable features are effective folder and disk encryption, and the practical server console-started agent/encryption module deployment to endpoints are highly commendable. The server… more»
How has it helped my organization?The McAfee Policy Orchestrator did a fair job in overall control and management of encryption. A centralized repository of various functions is provided in an excellent user interface and menu system.
What needs improvement?Well expectedly, the upgrade process from Orchestrator v5.32 to 5.91 will be a bit painful for a lengthy and hardly completed client saturation (i.e. ensuing endpoint upgrade, if not done after server… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?This solution is reasonably priced.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Our previous experience with Symantec encryption has left a lot of room for improvements such as deployment/redeployment ease and Active Directory integration. We, therefore, chose McAfee for its… more»
What other advice do I have?So far, we are satisfied with the overall results and the product welcomed by end-users with few complaints.

The device control is more reliable and more stable but the interface is not easy for administrators
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 most valuable feature of this solution is Data Loss Prevention. There is progression. It's quite amazing! In the configuration, you can restrict a user from accessing a removable drive. They can bring in malware from external sources into the network without it coming from the internet. It could come from a memory stick. With the Data Loss Prevention, we can check for this and we can stop them… more»
What needs improvement?When it comes to the integration, the information or instruction that comes with the package is not good. When you are getting started it's not easy to integrate it, there are many things involved. If you are a beginner you can easily become confused, but if you have experience then it can be easy. In the next release, I would like to see some additional product features added to the interface… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?The solution is excellent for protecting users from data being exploited. It's also great for preventing data leakage. The solution is simple. Accessing the DLP is easy.
What needs improvement?The solution needs more advanced features. Customers tend to not like the navigation that is offered. While accessing the DLP is easy, navigating inside of it is difficult. The policies and propagation need to be improved. The solution should integrate more into the Cloud. McAfee is not focusing too… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We've previously used Symantec and Trend Micro. They all have similar features. All of them use privacy encryption technology, and they are all simple in terms of just deploying the agent. They offer encryption of the endpoint. There's no major difference between any of them.
What other advice do I have?I'm a consultant. Our company is a partner as well as a distributor. I would recommend companies who want some solid security products to consider this solution. McAfee is well known in the market, and it has a good reputation specifically surrounding the EPO encryption. I would recommend them. I'd… more»

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?The antivirus is the solution's most valuable feature. The interface is very good. You can create and manage your own dashboard. The reporting is very good.
What needs improvement?The refresh feature needs improvement. You need to refresh it manually yt going to the address bar, clicking on it and pressing enter, or pressing F5. There should be a button you can click on to refresh or have it so every five seconds… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We previously used ArcSite. It was the choice of the company to switch solutions.
What other advice do I have?We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd recommend the solution. It's modern, simple, scalable and reliable. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We did evaluate Trend Micro before choosing McAfee.

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.
