Overall, we've been satisfied with its performance. 

The solution has been quite stable.

The initial setup was a positive experience. 

What needs improvement?

We have ten members in our technical team that can handle deployment and maintenance.

I'd rate the solution at a nine out of ten. We've been very pleased with how it has worked for us so far. 

I'm not sure if I would recommend the solution to other users. It's not for me to say.

Good in terms of stability and it secures us against major issues or threats

Pros and Cons

  • "There have never been any issues in terms of security, so it's assumed that McAfee is doing its job well."

    What is our primary use case?

    The primary use case of this solution is for the general protection of the device.

    What is most valuable?

    My usage is fairly secure in terms of how I use it and where I access it from.

    I haven't been faced with any issues.

    I haven't been exposed to any major threats.

    There have never been any issues in terms of security, so it's assumed that McAfee is doing its job well.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using McAfee since I purchased my first laptop. It's been a few years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    It's stable. I have been using it for many years and haven't faced any issues with stability.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    I have not contacted technical support. My dealer is in contact with them for me.

    What about the implementation team?

    My equipment dealer completed the installation.

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

    There is a license. There is a subscription fee that you have to pay for.

    It could be cheaper, but anybody would like a good product at a lesser price.

    Over the years it has become expensive but that is the norm. I have had it for so many years now, I don't really think of changing it.

    What other advice do I have?

    Of course, I would recommend this solution to others. Many people already do and several of my friends or family already have it. My family, and friends circle, have been using it for a long time.

    My requirements are not any different. I will continue to use this solution.

    I would rate McAfee MOVE AntiVirus an eight out of ten.

    Secure, stable, scalable, and easy to install

    What is our primary use case?

    It is useful in detecting any issues on the internet, and security issues.

    What is most valuable?

    I like that it keeps my systems secure. It's a good product.

    What needs improvement?

    It uses a lot of your bandwidth and your memory. It makes your system slow.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using this solution for approximately nine years. We are using the latest version.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    It's a stable solution.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    It's a scalable solution. In my previous organization, they used it with 50,000 to 100,000 users.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    I have never required the support. I don't think that there is support…

    How are customer service and technical support?

    I have never required the support. I don't think that there is support for personal use. If you go the endpoint protection in the enterprise, they definitely require support. This is something that the IT team does.

    I am sure that McAfee has a good support team.

    How was the initial setup?

    The installation was straightforward.

    It should be deployed in half an hour, depending on how long it takes to download in your network.

    What about the implementation team?

    I completed the installation myself.

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

    There is no monthly fee. You just purchase the tool.

    What other advice do I have?

    I would recommend this product to other users. 

    I plan to continue using this solution for my personal use.

    I would rate McAfee a nine out of ten.

    No performance issues but haven't really noticed a difference in security

    What is our primary use case?

    We started using MOVE Antivirus because our security staff required it. And I personally haven't seen the difference because I haven't had any issues so far that McAfee addresses. MOVE Antivirus is to reduce and avoid risks.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I've been using MOVE AntiVirus for around a month. 

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    In the time that I've been using it, it hasn't crashed. It's rock-solid. So, I haven't noticed any performance issues, like using too much CPU or memory.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    It has been expanded to our entire organization. So, it's more than 100 people.

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

    It has been expanded to our entire organization. So, it's more than 100 people.

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

    I didn't use any antivirus because my operating system was secure already. I haven't faced any issues so far, so I didn't use it before.

    How was the initial setup?

    Setting up MOVE Antivirus is straightforward. It only takes a couple of minutes. We have a couple of technical specialists who handle all of this.

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

    I'm not sure about the pricing because it's something that our security staff installed. It should be licensed like any commercial solution purchased by a company.

    What other advice do I have?

    I rate MOVE Antivirus seven out of 10. I haven't had any issues, so I can recommend this.

    Makes data accessible, but needs better security

    What is our primary use case?

    We are using the latest version. I use it on my laptop and for my mobile phone for the protection of personal information.

    What is most valuable?

    When my phone was stolen the solution enabled me to access my data so that I could take a screenshot of the person using my phone and have it sent to my email. This is a great feature.

    What needs improvement?

    The security feature should be more secure. 

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I've been using McAfee MOVE AntiVirus for three years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    While I considered the solution to be stable, the theft of information from my phone demonstrates that this is an area which could stand improvement.

    Excellent for endpoint security, providing great protection

    Pros and Cons

    • "The solution works well for endpoint security."
    • "Lacks cloud security integrated with the antivirus."

    What is our primary use case?

    Our primary use case is to protect all the computers in the company; the websites, files and emails our employees use. I'm responsible for IT and we are customers of McAfee. 

    What is most valuable?

    In general, the solution provides good protection, it works well for endpoint security. 

    What needs improvement?

    We're currently looking to switch to a solution that offers cloud security because we want that integrated with the antivirus. We're looking for something that's more sophisticated and integrated.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I've been using this solution for over six years. 

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    We haven't had any issues with stability. 

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    We have 10 employees in the company and no problems with scaling. 

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is easy, you just download the software program and install. It can be done very quickly. 

    What other advice do I have?

    This is a great tool but now that people are working from home we're looking for something better because what we have now just protects the endpoint and we'd like to have better email and cloud security. 

    The solution no longer meets our needs but it's a very good product and I rate it a nine out of 10.
