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 learning algorithms in order to precisely identify and confirm the presence of any malware, primarily based on their signature profiles. * The containment of applications: With this feature, your IT security staff can mitigate the damaging impacts of malicious files (such as those found in phishing emails) and other types of malware by blocking them from entering further into your network infrastructure, and from there, isolating them. * Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR): EDR is now fully integrated into the McAfee Suite and is completely automated. Any risks and threats can be curtailed by just a few clicks of the mouse. * Centralized management: The McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator is a specific tool that allows for your IT Security staff to a get a much greater visibility and insight into your network infrastructure with easy-to-use and understandable at-a-glance dashboards. * Proactive learning analysis: With machine learning algorithms, the McAfee Suite can quickly create models of your organization’s cyber-threat landscape and what potential malware attack vectors could like in the future. * Sophisticated levels of anti-malware protection: The engine that drives the McAfee Suite is updated on a 24-7 basis via the McAfee Global Threat Intelligence feeds. * Advanced threat forensic capabilities: With this functionality, your IT security staff can quickly determine where the malware resides in your network infrastructure, how they evolved and penetrated your lines of defense, and how long they have stayed in your systems. * Malware behavior monitoring: This tool of the McAfee Suite can actually record the “behavior” of the malware in question while also studying its Attack Techniques and Procedures (TPPs). It comes with a comprehensive alert system and can even provide a sophisticated review (or “playback”) for the network administrator. * Migration assistant: This functionality allows for your IT security staff to quickly migrate network security policies from legacy platforms into the McAfee Suite.

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. View full review »
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 our network and not managed by McAfee. View full review »

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. View full review »

IT Manager at a retailer with 10,001+ employees
The solution is broken down into different components from the portals. Web filtering, which is an added feature has been great for us. Other than that, we also make use of other products under McAfee, so it was DLP, HIPS, as well. Rogue Detection is more for detecting and managing systems on our network. That worked very well for us. From an interface point of view, it's really simple and straightforward. View full review »

The loss prevention feature would be the most valuable. This is a good feature but don't use it because of the complexity. View full review »
