Very good support, easy to set up, and mostly stable

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use the solution to scan the Windows or Linux Server to find out if there's a weakness of the operating the system and to validate the system. It's for monitoring and scanning mostly.

Pros and Cons

  • "The support is very good. They are very quick to respond when we have issues."
  • "The UI needs to be improved."

What other advice do I have?

We're only a small startup. We don't have a business relationship with McAfee. We use many off-the-shelf solutions as a start-up, and that includes McAfee. What we like about McAfee is that it works on MySQL, which is an open-source solution we use. It can help us scan for vulnerabilities. Overall, I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
