What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the ability to configure and deploy everything from a single, web-based interface.

What needs improvement?

This solution ships with SQL Express, and we have issues related to database corruption in the event of power loss. Especially on this side of the world, we have a lot of power outages and most companies do not have backup power solutions. In most cases, when the power goes out, the database tends to corrupt a lot. For example, clients will be having trouble logging on because the login… more»

What other advice do I have?

This is a solution I recommend very much. For anybody who is implementing this solution, I suggest that they read through the product manuals and documentation. I have noticed that it is an advantage to read through the manuals because people who do not, tend to miss things, and then blame the product for not working. I would say that McAfee is a good product, and over the years I have found it to… more»

What is most valuable?

Once you understand how to use it, it becomes easy to use.

How has it helped my organization?

If you're talking about endpoint, you have virus detection, behavioral-based detection in advanced threat detection, and even have host-based firewall, etc. Each of these would be a separate product that would integrate into the endpoint solution. From a cost perspective that would scale pretty… more»

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

You get what you pay for. McAfee tries to package different things into different products, then sell them as different products with different licenses. They just split everything up into multiple things. That's just their sales pitch and how they do it.

What other advice do I have?

It does provide a lot of functionality. ePO Cloud takes away a lot of the management administration overhead. Though, I haven't tried this feature.

What is most valuable?

It is protecting us from USB-based hazards like viruses. Previously it was only for blocking USBs. They have added more features, like network protection. Originally, we were only using it as a security platform to block USBs and as an antivirus product. But in the last six or seven months, we've been trying to enhance things and use more of the features in it. In that time we implemented data… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has secured our environment. We have over 200 machines.

What other advice do I have?

Do a PoC with competitors' endpoint protection products. But compared to what McAfee has, I don't think other products have as many options, as many features. If you want to protect data, DLP is a good option. In terms of scalability, they're introducing more and new more features in ENS, Endpoint Security. If a ransomware attack happens, you can roll the encryption to its previous position. This… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of this solution are the antivirus and the DLP. The interface, dashboard, and reporting are all very good.

How has it helped my organization?

This is a centralized solution, and we have very good control over the endpoints when using this product.

What needs improvement?

The Virtual Patching feature needs to be improved. We would also like to have something in the cloud.

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

This solution is priced in the mid-range.

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

We were using Symantec prior to this solution, but we switched because of the cost.

What other advice do I have?

This is a solution that I recommend and would suggest for others to use. The biggest thing that I have learned from using this solution is that it is very easy to use. I… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Trend Micro before choosing this solution, but we selected this one because of pricing and features.

What is most valuable?

The DLP feature is great to have for our users.

What needs improvement?

There are some issues relating to the automation of reports. That's why I wanted the DLP reports. There are some problems in this area. Sometimes it does not work even though all the configuration words are right. There are also some problems with automatic updates. There have been some problems with monitoring the logs. It's not very user-friendly.

What other advice do I have?

I have not had too many problems with this solution. It works fine. I really like the DLP feature. There are no database issues. I would rate it a nine out of ten because it gives IT clarity, it doesn't have database issues, and it hasn't crashed or given us problems in the two years we've been using it. It's a great tool.

What is most valuable?

We use McAfee Threat Prevention and McAfee Adaptive Threat Prevention for protection against viruses. There is also exploit-prevention support. The McAfee Web Control module is one of the best… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It is difficult to imagine the workstations without Antivirus protection. In this cyberworld, McAfee is the best software to protect our machines. Before we had antivirus protection installed, we saw… more»

What needs improvement?

McAfee should improve in terms of customer support and assigning a knowledgeable TAM to customers. Threat detection capabilities should be increased for both viruses and other threats.

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

Compared to other Antivirus products, the cost of this solution is a bit high.

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

We did not use another solution prior to this, and we are happy with our choice.

What other advice do I have?

In my opinion, this is the best product. Please go for it!
