What is most valuable?

VirusScan Enterprise provides protection against real-time malware attacks. We use it for logging the network traffic, when required. It blocks the things which are not to be allowed. It has an adaptive mode where it learns for itself.

How has it helped my organization?

By having access protection in the policies on the machine, it helps in real-time behavior scenarios, where the policy captures stuff, quite a lot.

What needs improvement?

There are always multiple bugs in the product. For example, the console page was hanging multiple times. Afterwards, they released multiple upgrades for the same, multiple patches from McAfee. Also, there's no software support from McAfee. It... more»

What do you think of McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (McAfee ESM)?

Valuable Features It's SIEM.

What do you think of McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (McAfee ESM)?

Valuable Features The easy interface is the most valuable feature. • Improvements to My Organization Through correlation rules, it finds malware that compromised the computer that anti-virus and other security solutions do not find. • Room for Improvement I had a couple of problems collecting Windows events. The local plugin should be easier to use, because when ESM is collecting through the manager, many performance issues occur. • Use of Solution I have been using McAfee for over three years. • Stability Issues We did have stability issues, but they were resolved by McAfee support. • Scalability Issues We have not had scalability issues. • Customer Service and Technical Support I would give technical support a rating of 8/10. • Previous Solutions I...

What is most valuable?

Ability to create own views. Statistical (normalised) views help to highlight inconsistencies, which may need further investigation

How has it helped my organization?

It is a good central viewpoint for issues. These can then be investigated in more detail on the subnet server(s)/endpoints.

What needs improvement?

* Product currently requires Flash. * Update to user interface from version 9 is cosmetic in some aspects, and after a few clicks you are back on the old interface. * Some filters are still very low level "magic numbers", which do not make... more»
