What is most valuable?

The Dashboard Views are the most valuable feature since it visualizes network and security-related use cases we develop. This visualization clearly articulates the current and past state of network traffic and correlation rule hits. I also... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The best way to describe the improvement is within the following areas: * Network Operations. Without visibility of network related issues, we have discovered many routing issues and network noise that could have otherwise been left to... more»

What needs improvement?

The API the product provides still needs to develop some maturity. There is not a lot of documentation available on it. My recommendation for improvement is that the API is developed in such a way to make it more useable for different... more»

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

Valuable Features The most valuable feature for us is that it comes with many correlations, reports, and dashboards already available. It's also very easy to use. • Improvements to My Organization It's easy to create reports for compliance and for detecting different kinds of attacks and breaches through correlations. This makes the client devices to be more secure. • Room for Improvement The disk space needed for events is not clear. In all clients, we had at least more than 100GB free that we could not use. • Use of Solution I've used it for two-and-a-half years. • Deployment Issues The disk space sizing is very hard and when the version was updated to 9.4 the space needed to store events was cut by half, making it harder to explain to clients who now needed...

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. Obviously, normalization of data is the biggest factor. • Improvements to My Organization We perform security event monitoring for over 700 individual servers, firewalls, and applications. It's not possible to monitor over 500 million events per day with SIEM. • Room for Improvement McAfee is working on a newer ELS product for a faster search which will change everything about how a SIEM can perform. • Use of Solution I have been using this product for the past eight years. • Stability Issues Just like any other software/hardware platform, once in awhile we have issues with software bugs, but McAfee's support is good in helping to fix these issues in a timely manner. • Scalability Issues Biggest benefit of McAfee SIEM is its easy...

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

Valuable Features Dashboards, which can be customized to display alerts and queries, and rules, which trigger alerts, are the most valuable features for us. • Improvements to My Organization We now have a better view of our security posture from an external and internal point of view. We are able to do forensic investigations and stop attacks before they occur. • Room for Improvement The reporting could use some improvement. Also, while the dashboard can be customized to an extent, I'd like to have the ability to do even more customization. • Use of Solution We've used it for two years. • Deployment Issues We've had no deployment issues. • Stability Issues There have been no issues with the stability. • Scalability Issues Scaling it has been fine. We've...
