We're a McAfee customer. We don't have a specific relationship with the organization. We are using the latest version of the solution. The solution is quite good and stable right now, but there are a lot of other products coming to the market. I'm currently investigating what other features customers need or are using to see if we can develop these out on this solution or not. Many organizations will find the solution has may features that would suit their needs and reduce the number of issues they face. However, it does depend on the individual company and what their unique requirements are. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

My advice would be to read the documentation and carry out implementation. It is not complicated, just a matter of deciding which vendor to use. Because we have a corporate contract, the price is reasonable. We're happy with everything - the dashboard, user interface - it's all good. I would rate this product a nine out of 10.

This is a solution that I recommend and would suggest for others to use. The biggest thing that I have learned from using this solution is that it is very easy to use. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

This is a solution I recommend very much. For anybody who is implementing this solution, I suggest that they read through the product manuals and documentation. I have noticed that it is an advantage to read through the manuals because people who do not, tend to miss things, and then blame the product for not working. I would say that McAfee is a good product, and over the years I have found it to be very stable and very effective when it comes to managing other products. We have all that we wanted to do with McAfee. In the time that I have been using this solution, I've noticed that when I perform a setup on different platforms or different networks, I've gotten to learn new things because each and every network is different. When it comes to troubleshooting network issues, I have learned a lot, especially things related to cybersecurity. This is a very good product, but they have a database issue. Having a McAfee-only solution, rather than having to bring in a Microsoft product, or one from another vendor would make this solution perfect. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

It does provide a lot of functionality. ePO Cloud takes away a lot of the management administration overhead. Though, I haven't tried this feature.

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 product. But you still need someone who is strong in SQL and someone who can install operating systems. I have not compared this product to any other product. If I had then I could rate it properly. But, overall, it's good, it's not a bad product. I would rate it at nine out of ten. The product has everything I need.

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.
