What is most valuable?

The whitelisting works well.

What needs improvement?

The technology would provide a DLL hook injection into memory to monitor processes as they were inserted into memory. Assuming they pass the other tests from the AV side, and they're allowed to be inserted into the memory, then the DLL… more»

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

I don't have any insight into the cost. We were looking mostly at the technological aspects of the solution. There might have been some extra charges for the aggregation and SOC integration type of items.

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

We had used other McAfee solutions before. McAfee was the status quo. Then, the expansion was into Solidcore and app control. It was really about expanding within the McAfee portfolio.

What other advice do I have?

We were a service provider and reseller. We had the solution in a lab environment for about three weeks, so we weren't a longterm user of it. We had a client that had familiarity with other aspects of McAfee protection solutions, and they… more»

What is most valuable?

One of the most valuable things for us about this product is that we needed some solution that can be used in desktop virtualization. We are not using the antivirus program in common ways. We use… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It provides us with an excellent solution to recommend to clients for security.

What needs improvement?

One thing that would help us is if the McAfee agent that we install on virtual machines became lighter. It is a bit heavy for installation on virtual machines and it uses too much in the way of… more»

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

I have previous and current experience in usage of some other security applications like McAfee, like Kaspersky, like BitDefender, and like SOPHOS. So I have experience with a lot of these kinds of… more»

What other advice do I have?

Advice that I would give to others looking into implementing this solution is the same as when our customers ask us for any kind of security solution. We almost always recommended that they go with… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did consider other options from the other vendors I've worked with before. I had kind of a friendly connection with the BitDefender company, for example. But when it comes down to making a choice… more»

What is most valuable?

The interface is really the most valuable feature. The administration part is also nice because it is pretty user-friendly as it is. The interface and administration are important because the data protection capabilities are already there… more»

What needs improvement?

Both the pricing and the support for this product could be improved. I think the support comes at a very high cost. In our case, there are some regions where we do not pay McAfee for support because they do not provide the support quickly… more»

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

The pricing seems expensive both for the license and the support.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anyone considering this type of data protection solution is that you need to choose a product based on your needs. There are so many products nowadays that do similar things and there are always newer tools and technologies… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ability to control access to USB drives and other external devices.

What needs improvement?

The interface is very complicated to use and it is easy to forget how it works. There needs to be support for blocking the sending of files by email because even if you block or remove an external disk, the files are not protected. As long… more»

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

The price is high for this type of product.

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

Symantec has a similar solution available.
