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?

It allows us to detect rogue devices, then to subsequently force policies on them to protect our system from them.

How has it helped my organization?

The only feature worth mentioning is the rogue devices detection. This helped the company manage new laptops joining the network.

What needs improvement?

I am not familiar with the newer versions, but the biggest issues we had with our version were false positives and performance degradation.

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

The replacement for McAfee was due to pricing. It is common in the antivirus space to have price wars, though.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I came into the company and started using McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator. The previous solution was F-Secure.

What other advice do I have?

I am not familiar with the latest versions, but I am sure they have been improved. From a management point of view, ePO is one of the best solutions out there.

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.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you 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!
