Make the ATD appliance a part of the whole product offering and take the whole thing onto the cloud. While it is there already, it is not to the same level as the on-premise version. McAfee sells the ATD APPLIANCE AS A SEPARATE PRODUCT above the rest of the threat defence mechanism stated above. Im not sure of exact cloud readiness status of the ATD device ( making the device available on the cloud as part of the licensed products ). Request to check with McAfee account manager in your country/region

I would like to see future versions of the solution incorporate artificial intelligence technology.

This solution needs to be made "cloud ready". As the industry is pushing everybody towards the cloud, there are these fat clients, like McAfee, that are not lightweight and cannot handle the cloud infrastructure yet.

I would like to have a simplified deployment. So, it would not need to reconfigure a bunch of other things to get the product integrated. The Cisco networking products could be improved upon.

I think maybe a simpler interface might help. And a better integration with the active directory and to integrate with directory services.
