Protects us from USB-based hazards and enables read-only access to hard drives

What is our primary use case?

With this solution we use ENS with DLP. DLP works in controlling data protection when transferring data from PC to USB, USB to PC. We also use it for read-only access for hard disks. In DLP we have many options which we can work with. Currently, we are using it for the clipboard, where we cannot capture screenshots from the PC screen, as well as for USB locking/data transfer, and the hard disk protection.

Pros and Cons

  • "We implemented data transfer protection, which allows transfer in one direction only. Users can copy from the PC to the USB but not from the USB to the PC. That way, if someone is carrying a virus on a USB, it will not be transferred to the PC."
  • "It's a little bit complex to configure it, but when you start using it, it is much easier. There are many policies that you need to create, and in three or four places"

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 is what they are implementing, according to their articles. For maintenance of ePO, one guy is enough. If the server is ready, if the database and the platforms are ready, one guy can oversee the…

Enables us to monitor logs and report incidents

What is our primary use case?

I use McAfee as a solution to monitor our network log systems. I monitor logs and use it to be able to report incidents and get better internal vision.

Pros and Cons

  • "Their support is really good. I would rate it a nine out of ten. I have never any issues with their support. They always reply and follow our queries on time."
  • "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."

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.

The biggest issue was false positives and performance degradation.​ My policies were easily accessible and managed during setup.​

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.

Provides centralized virus signature and patch updates.

What other advice do I have?

I would suggest the following: * Set up a test environment. Test all products you are going to deploy on all platforms you have before actual deployment. * The testing environment should be retained since new patches may impact some legacy systems. * Plan your implementation and application deployment. Write down all parameters you put into the system configuration. Link this with Windows AD for user authentication. * Prepare your SMTP server for an email setup alert. * If you are going to use it to manage McAfee VirusScan, make sure you set it with up-to-date virus signatures from McAfee, at…

With it, I was able to make an MSS (Managed Security Service) solution.

What other advice do I have?

If you use any McAfee endpoint solutions in the enterprise you need to use the ePO, as there are no other options.

Although it has the ability to auto create service tickets, it needs to expand to allow more products this ability.

What other advice do I have?

There is no other product out there with the control and overall security components that can do what ePO can.

Thinking Outside of the Cloud: A Holistic and Strategic Approach to Enterprise Security
Cloud computing is one of the next significant stages in the Internet’s evolution, providing the means through which everything – from computing power to computing infrastructure, applications, business processes to personal collaboration – can be delivered to us as a service wherever and whenever we need. Whether it’s Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) or Platform as a Service (PaaS), cloud computing has been with us long before the media had a catchy name for it. The landscape of a typical business no longer reflects ones that were operating several years ago. The advancements in communication, collaboration, information and/or currency exchange/processing and the speed in which they are done have truly created new opportunities to the modern enterprise…
