Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with McAfee MVISION Cloud.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
McAfee needs to add more products that could be managed from the cloud. At the moment, not all of their endpoint products can be managed from this console. I'd like McAfee endpoint products to be managed from the cloud console. It's my understanding that they do plan to do this. It's just a matter of time. There are still a lot of customers who are demanding on-premise solutions. That's the situation on the ground here. People do not easily switch to cloud products. They're sticking to on-premise solutions so that they can fully control their IT.
The solution is the leader in the market right now. It's hard to consider where it falls short, as it is so far ahead of everything else. One thing that can be improved is their ability to integrate with other web proxies to discover unsanctioned IP apps. That can be room for improvement. I'd love to see an on-prem version of the product. Instead of McAfee providing the service, it should be also software available for customers in the market to install on their data centers.
The solution is hard to configure, our team does not have specific training requirements for McAfee making it difficult. Another issue is with decreasing performance with desktop and laptop due to the solution. In a future release, I would like them to add email protection as part of their offerings.
It needs to be more user-friendly, as it is a little bit complicated to use. They should implement straightforward automation capabilities that include the integration of AI and ML. It should be able to handle solutions quickly whenever a rule has to be created. It should, for example, suggest to the admin that if there is any indication of data corruption then a notification will be sent. In addition, initial steps will be taken to ensure that the data is safe.
The biggest challenge we have with McAfee is their cross-cloud support. They tend to lag by a few months, in terms of providing support for new cloud platforms, or new cloud features. We're primarily focused on SaaS, so the other opportunities for them to improve their integration is with AWS and PaaS. I would like to see better integration with on-premise tools.
I would like to see more power being given to the admin. In the sense that in case an employee is facing an issue and they want to configure a service, like attaching an email in Gmail, for example, they should be given the option to make the service request and get that configured on the go.
