Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with McAfee MOVE AntiVirus.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The solution could be cheaper. they should work to lower their pricing. It's too expensive right now.
I found that the interface is a little bit confusing. It's over-stuffed. If a new IT person comes in, it is difficult to understand how the McAfee console works. It needs to be more user-friendly and not as complicated. It would be nice if the solution could add in some ransomware features.
It uses a lot of your bandwidth and your memory. It makes your system slow.
I would like to see monthly reports of the usage. While scanning, if you could get history as well provide an easy report that can identify monthly what you have browsed.
This solution requires you to deploy multiple agents for multiple jobs which is unfortunate. There is the antivirus, there is a DLP client, there is a media client. I'd like to see all of these combined into a single agent that does everything without consuming significant resources. That would be a great innovation from the endpoint security point of view. Rather than having different tools, the DLP DR should be integrated and simplified into one single security solution.
I would like to see integration with SharePoint.
The process of enabling drive encryption can be improved. It takes a long time to enable drive encryption. For some reason, we have to keep monitoring it. It takes a few hours to update the policies, which finally encrypts the drive. It's a very slow process, and we have to sit there and watch what goes on. Sometimes I also see that there isn't any reporting back to the central team that someone's system isn't up to date.
The software is dependent on the operating system of the computer. In some cases, the virus does not get cleaned completely. Regular updates on the status of the virus that may not have been cleaned entirely would help. I would like to see more emphasis on cybersecurity in the next release.
This solution is okay for users who are just office personnel. Developers or users who heavily use their laptops complain that it really slows down their laptops. Using this solution can be a big challenge from the performance perspective if you need a productive system that locally runs multiple VMs.
Sometimes, the updates don't happen successfully. The updates start, but they are not completed. Let's say there is a process that runs on the server-side every night, and it pushes the updates. Sometimes, these updates fail. I'm not sure whether it is a McAfee's problem or an internal problem with our systems. If this is really an issue with McAfee MOVE AntiVirus, McAfee can work on it and improve it in the next release. If it is an internal issue, I need to figure out why it is happening within the organization. We may need to take some technical support from McAfee to see what the problem is and then we need to get it fixed. At this point in time, all I know is that it happens sometimes.
We are currently doing a project where we need assistance on the File Integrity Monitoring feature for McAfee as well as the ability to do classification of data. That feature is there for data protection. We need help to implement it properly. They could improve the monitoring and classification of the data features. Additionally, I want to experience the EDR of McAfee. Basically, EDR is the most potent threat now, that's the major concern for a lot of people. This is what is called the file-less attacks. Processes that run in memory, traditional antivirus software are not able to detect that. So the EDR feature has been made to provide the defense mechanism for the endpoint. Those processes can be stopped from running in memory once they are seen as malicious. That's what I understand EDR does. So I want to experience the EDR feature for McAfee to see how that compares with what we are currently using.
The dashboard should be improved, as a more user-friendly version is required.
I'm happy with the solution but the pricing could be improved, it's very expensive.
The advanced threat protection is not as good as the competitors. They are not as fast as the other competitors in detecting new threats. They can be anywhere from half a day to a day behind the other solutions before detecting the threat. The admin interface is very old. In the next release, they could refresh the GUI. It would be appreciated.
They could try to introduce advanced threat detection. This could be a huge improvement because some customers don't want to buy the entire McAfee product. It should product from unknown threats as well. I would like to ability to mitigate advanced threats. It should be a bit stronger.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
