McAfee MOVE AntiVirus Valuable Features

CISO at a financial services firm with 5,001-10,000 employees

The features that I have found most valuable are its ability to detect and delete known malware and the DLP in particular - that's to protect data loss to USB devices.

The solution is stable. In comparison, when I used Trend Micro, I recall having multiple issues. 

Trend Micro was tedious to install and the implementation of its policy organization-wide was a challenge. Often file codes wouldn't work or the performance was off. With McAfee, I'm not seeing these same issues, although, to be fair, I've only worked with it for a month. The performance seems to be better, and it's less challenging to work with.

Overall, the policies are good. They are easy to implement.

Sophos only provides signature-based scanning, a basic antivirus. It is not enough for an advanced attack or advanced threat. It's weak. McAfee can integrate with the existing fabric. I really like this aspect. It enables all of the security parts to talk to each other. McAfee synchronizes security across the security fabric. They cross communicate. This is one aspect that is a huge gap with other security products. McAfee minimizes the threats.

I like that it's all automated. It's automatically configured and updated from a central server. The patches get updated automatically, and it provides good security against malware and ransomware. It also encrypts our drives, and there's a lot of security.

Another good feature is that you can always get it to reset by calling a remote admin for help. For example, if you've forgotten your password, you can unlock it from your system boot up, and you can get assistance from the admin.

McAfee not only provides the antivirus, but they provide an EDR kind of solution which makes it possible for there to be zero attacks. That scenario certainly helps customers - everything can be combined in a single pane of glass from the endpoint and the server infrastructure security perspective. I like that the solution consumes less of what it stores on endpoints. When it's performing a full-system scan, it consumes less CPU and memory resources, so a user can continue working and not be aware the scanning is occurring. It also supports the real-time memory scan, protecting the user from the real-time product and from any kind of EXE file or monitoring activity. I think the endpoint protection is a very nice feature of this product. McAfee has a more simplified approach to providing security for endpoints.

The most valuable feature is the security, which is very effective compared to other products.

The resource utilization is very low, not consuming the same level of resources as Symantec.

The most valuable features are the integration with different modules like the DLP.

It's a complete endpoint and you can extend the endpoint using additional modules. This is at times useful for customers with a lot of different data that they don't want to lose, so they integrate it with a DLP module to check the USB drivers and USB mass storage as an example.

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.
