What is most valuable?

The following are the main features of the McAfee Suite: * Threat/risk protection at the core level: All of the components , including the antivirus and exploit functionalities, all communicate with each other on a real-time basis. * Machine learning: The McAfee Suite consists of sophisticated… more »

How has it helped my organization?

Controlling and Monitoring Change Change control processes are often reactive and require manual responses, an ineffective approach to combating today’s threats and handling the growing number of devices in the IT infrastructure. The Security Connected approach from McAfee ensures that every… more »

What needs improvement?

Business Support some times lazy but once they on board they will get the job done.

What other advice do I have?

There are many other endpoint security solutions that are available today, but McAfee Suite has several distinct advantages when you make a procurement decision. For example: * All of the information, data, malware signature profiles, intelligence gathering, alerts, warnings and so on can be… more »

What is most valuable?

The manageability of the product itself is its most valuable aspect. You have the underlying EPO, and on top of it, you can deploy the various components as you require. This is unlike other solutions like Symantec where you have to deploy everything or nothing. With this solution, you can choose to… more »

What needs improvement?

There are two main areas that require improvement. One is the size of the packages. Although I'll admit manageability is good, if I want to deploy, let's say just the antivirus or just the firewall, each of those package sizes are quite large. They are sometimes as big as 200MB or 250MB. When I have… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We've always used McAfee. There never has been another solution that the organization has tried out. I personally have worked with a few other solutions. I'm not talking about next-generation products, like a CrowdStrike or a Carpenter due to the fact that they are a different league altogether… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would advise, if somebody's looking at buying a brand new solution fresh or have a solution coming up for renewal, to look at the next generation antivirus products. The next-generation products are far more sophisticated. They might be a little higher in price, but in terms of manageability… more »

What is most valuable?

The ability to check a wide range of vulnerabilities and devices is a very valuable feature in this product. This is not really a user interface or manually driven product. VirusScan gives an alert to the user that a scan should be… more »

What needs improvement?

We are using it so the company is providing better security coverage end-to-end. I am not sure how to improve on that because it already achieves that goal and updates constantly. One thing I think it should do is alert administration if… more »

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

As always, the cost of the licenses has to be paid and it will be per user per year. But the cost is minimal because we have taken a sort of deal with McAfee for a site license.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

As far as I know, before this company used McAfee VirusScan as a solution for these past six to seven years, there was not another endpoint security protection product in place.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend McAfee VirusScan to everyone in an enterprise environment. Part of the reason is that nowadays everyone is working from home. Their systems and devices have to be secure when they are connecting externally to the internal… more »

What is most valuable?

In terms of features, its internet exchange is also perfect. I mostly like the powerful management tools. It's got a lot of detail, so it's powerful.

What needs improvement?

They don't have any gateway solution. In the past, they did. I think they need a gateway solution to control internet traffic. In the next solution, it will improve the total security, on the network security side if they add this. In Turkey, according to regulations, the main platform must stay on on-prem, not on the cloud. Most of the customers are still using the mail gateway solution but… more »

What other advice do I have?

Everything has been simplified. On the endpoint side, there is also a lot of improvement. When Intel acquired McAfee they worked on the protocol so that all vendors can work on the same platform. It's a very big improvement in McAfee. All McAfee products talk to each other. Other vendor's products can join this platform as well so it makes it more powerful on the enterprise side for McAfee. With a… more »

What is most valuable?

The feature I like the most in McAfee Endpoint Protection is when I get reports of unmanaged devices. These are kind of issues that alert me to address a problem. I need to find out how we can eliminate these devices which are connected to… more »

How has it helped my organization?

We have approximately 800 people using McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection. These are mainly end-users.

What needs improvement?

In my experience, the main part of McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection that needs to be improved or simplified to make the platform better is the scanning features. Sometimes when it runs in the background of the endpoint, the devices get… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection is the only endpoint solution we've used.

What other advice do I have?

We recommend McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection. We watch threat reports for McAfee and search Gartner's Reports to see whether they are doing well or not. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate the platform an eight. We were expecting… more »

What is most valuable?

I find the endpoint management feature the most valuable. I like the exploit blocking, the anti-exploit.

What needs improvement?

The solution is getting better. The new central console is better than the earlier one. Earlier it was too complex to find out which option was there. So, if there was a search menu for certain things and if I wanted to enable or disable something, I couldn't. Now there's a search menu that I can type into and I can navigate through the menu to where I want to go. There are still too many options… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would like to recommend the solution. It's better, and pricing wise, it's worth it. It's really worth it as compared to other advanced malware security solutions in the market. They are costly, like anything. And the technical support good, even though the solution is new. The solution is not yet mature. Pricing is fairly affordable for all enterprises, big or small. I would rate this solution… more »

What is most valuable?

Firstly, the Real-Time Protect and the dynamic application containment, are two great features out there. The endpoint features are also good. The new version is quite good as compared to the older version and interface. It's a replica of the VAC. It's good.

What needs improvement?

The solution could use better updates and fewer bugs.

What other advice do I have?

For performance, they have introduced a new feature. McAfee decides what they want to scan and it reduces the performance of the system. So generally what happens is when McAfee scans a file, it stores the files in the cache. Next time, if there are any changes in the file, then only it will scan the file. Otherwise, it will not scan it. That's how they have increased in the performance inside. I… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the adaptive tech on McAfee.

How has it helped my organization?

I need to be able to allow the amount of data used on an authorized user account., i.e. the amount of web data someone uses before a limit. I use other tools for that now.

What needs improvement?

In our experience, McAfee Endpoint Protection could improve the word control feature. It is absent from the application. I couldn't do that. Everything has been fine with the product. It could use better visuals. The tutorial is very limited. They need better training materials and visuals in… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection. It's an all in one endpoint. You can scale it. You can buy McAfee web control. You can buy other products. You can increase as many products as you like as you go on. Most organizations don't have it and it makes controlling easier. On a scale… more »
