"Trusted Protection Partner for Large Organization."

What do you like best?

Lot of continuous improvements I observed since last 10 years in its functionality, but the beauty of McAfee Endpoint Protection in its ePolicy Orchestrator (EPO) customize Reporting.

Its DLP is very strong, user access controlling is very easy.

Its Disk level encryption provides unbound data security.

What do you dislike?

When we created folder at our own behalf (not sync from Active Directory), most of the time objects either Client PCs or Servers were automatically moved into another folder. In result of this Client policies applied on Servers and vise versa.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would strongly recommend to IT Professionals to use this superb product, I am using its ENS, DLP/Device Control, Web Control, and MOVE.

We are using McAfee MOVE also on our 9 VMware Hosts and it will provide complete protection to our 200+ virtual servers. Its reporting can explain details of each and every threat detected.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Its Data Leakage Prevention (DLP) is superb, in our organization most of the time Internees/Students spended time with us and they access our data. So we protected our data by blocking USB storage devices.

We realize that it is essential part of any organization keeping in view the latest threads.

Whenever any new threat reported over internet, McAfee plays vital role to prevent endpoint by providing step by step guideline contains extension blocking, process blocking, new policies configuration etc.

"antivirus mcafee maximum protection for your equipment."

What do you like best?

an excellent antivirus with access protection, protection against buffer overflows prevents the supported applications from executing arbitrary code on your computer, email scanner, unwanted programs, real-time analyzer, exploration, among others, everything you need to navigate and download files safely detecting any malicious file and deleting it to keep our computers clean of these.

What do you dislike?

It has to be installed correctly, because otherwise it can fail to have our equipment safe because it contains installation complements. some to be able to deactivate them or to uninstall them, you must enter a password, which can sometimes be misleading, hindering the process to be carried out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

it must be taken into account that this antivirus has real time analysis, and there is software which detects them as viruses and immediately eliminates them, when making an installation taking into account that said software does not have a virus, the analyzer must be deactivated in real time to avoid damaging the file, it is installed and then the analyzer is activated again so as not to leave the equipment unprotected.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is used in all the computers of our company in both mobile computers and computers, so it has a greater protection since none of these will be infected with malicious viruses, which puts at risk the integrity of stored information and navigation in Internet.

"McAfee Endpoint Protection encryption can be risky"

What do you like best?

We use McAfee Endpoint Protection for endpoint encryption. For this, it generally works well. There are a lot of quirks, particularly with older systems, but over time and with the help of support we have worked through them. Mostly bios issues or issues with smart card piv readers.

What do you dislike?

Like most things, it works great until it does not any more. Typically where the encryption ends up breaking the operating system is after an update or patch is applied. In these cases, you can no longer boot to the operating systems. McAfee does supply tools in these cases, and usually they work, but there is always those outliers that cause the most headaches. In some cases, to repair means to completely decrypt the system and re-encrypt. On an older system, particularly if it has large, non-ssd drives, this can take literally days. Also, we have had cases where the decrypt fails, and McAfee support's only suggestion is to rebuild the system after days wasted trying to decrypt. Frustrating!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Evaluate all products in this class. Backup or take an image of the systems in your environment. Be proactive, and plan for the worst.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a lot of mobile workers, so encryption is a must, there is just no way around it. And, like I said, when it works, it works.

McAfee Endpoint Security is not 100% effective and so there are a few malware and viruses that will find their way into my PC. Also, the scanning process is slow. The user interface is also lacking

"A great product for the protection of servers "

What do you like best?

The product suite works extremely well at shielding our servers from malware and viruses. We have never experienced downtime on account of a framework interruption that McAfee permitted to get to our system.

What do you dislike?

I would not utilize any kind of McAfee item on any PC that I have on the grounds that I don't think it functions admirably except if it's packaged with another security programming. When utilizing McAfee as my PC's single wellspring of insurance from viruses and malware, the product did not shield my PC from being infected.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mcafee have taken over a real working place in our working environment as a leading endpoint protection tool.

"End Point Security is good but complex w some issues / Enterprise support is terrible"

What do you like best?

ENS works pretty well with the exception of the Firewall and Web control modules. EPO is complex to get right but powerful.

What do you dislike?

Resource heavy and can cause issues on older hardware, firewall does not pick up existing domain settings and is complex / time consuming to configure. Will block remote access / remote support to end points in default config. Web control is of minimal use / functionality and causes more issues than it's worth. Biggest problem with McAfee is the lack of support even with an enterprise agreement. Calls don't get answered or returned and level one support (if you reach them) is terrible. Even though I like the product the lack of support is why we will not renew.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look at other options, support is pure crap...

"La experiencia con el producto completo de Endpoint de McAfee es muy buena."

What do you like best?

Este producto es modular, ya que cada necesidad de seguridad que se quiera atender puede ser atendida por cada uno de los complementos de Endpoint que pueden ser instalados y configurados.

What do you dislike?

McAfee Endpoint en versiones de la 10.5 en adelante, ha trabajado bastante en el uso de los recursos, sin embargo, cuando se trata de amenazas avanzadas que es lo que se vive día a día, debe ir siempre acompañado de ATP, ya que sin este módulo el equipo está predispuesto a un ataque de Ransomware. El módulo es de licenciamiento individual. No use la solución sino cuenta con licencia para ATP.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Las necesidades de seguridad en el contexto actual son cada vez mas complejas, por lo que cumplir con un análisis básico de antivirus no es suficiente, debe adquirir con este, herramientas de detección avanzadas como ATP en el caso de McAfee Endpoint Security.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Luego de la implementación del módulo de ATP al Endpoint básico de McAfee, se encuentra una mejor detección de las amenazas, por medio del machine learning que este contiene.

"Web protection that eliminates malware"

What do you like best?

What I liked the most is the user interface, which is very easy and simple to use, unlike other antivirus programs since it has a set of very useful functions.

Compatibility is another of its strengths, it can be run from Windows, IOS and Android without any problem of operation. In addition, the customer service is the best I've been able to enjoy, has a telephone support and a chat support 24 hours a day in many languages ​​that make any doubt is answered in a short time.

What do you dislike?

The worst thing in my view is the false positives, the detection is not as effective as it should be expected from a tool so well executed. Another aspect to improve is the consumption of resources that can make the computer slow down.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very good option for the protection of computer equipment giving security to mobile devices as large business servers. All this at a fairly acceptable price for the amount of security features you have.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my case it has helped me in my daily work by eliminating the malware giving me protection on the web in real time and having all my important data perfectly protected. The compatibility is very high with the main technologies and the assistance support is excellent.

"Network security with this powerful work tool"

What do you like best?

Main characteristic to emphasize is the simplicity in the use. It is not necessary to have a great experience because it allows the user to scan documents, files and navigation of my work team using a very intuitive user panel. Great robustness in the analysis of information, prevents and eliminates trojans and viruses that negatively affect work.

What do you dislike?

As an improvement from my point of view I would dare to say that it should include an improvement in scalability with other technologies and operating systems. I want to say that integration is not entirely perfect with other systems, wasting time looking for solutions to work properly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great highly recommended product for small and medium companies that want to operate with total security on the internet and that information is one of their biggest concerns, all at a fairly acceptable price.

"Simple deployment and full-featured administration"

What do you like best?

Deployment and administration is fast and easy. Policies are pushes automatically with granular control of products and individual product policies. It doesn't use much endpoint (workstation) resources.

What do you dislike?

The Administration Console (e-Policy Orchestrator, ePO) is somewhat difficult to install and requires windows server operative system and a powerfull hardware to function correctly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The administration console is both a good and bad thing, once it's installed and configured, which might be a little difficult, it works great and helps easily deploy this and other products.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For big deployments, 20+ computers the ePO is an excellent tool for fast and easy deployment. Administration is not complex and can be handled with a on-premise or cloud ePO. A single administration tool can later deploy other software and policies for this additional software.

Mcafee is Fantastic for businesses small and large. It offers immediate solutions to computer viruses and issues after scanning the computer it is installed on. It is very comforting to know Mcafee will take care of it right then and there, and you do not have to do anything else.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much to dislike with this software. Mcafee is a veteran in the field of computer security and a household name. One thing that I will say is it can be a little overwhelming to navigate through all the features, and may not be as user friendly as other software around. That being said you get what you pay for and Mcafee is one of the best.

"A very comprehensive security suite with a lot of overhead and headed in the right direction"

What do you like best?

McAfee Endpoint Protection security suite gives the most comprehensive insight into your endpoint environment and has a ton of power and flexibility to institute comprehensive security policies across your entire organization or just a very small subset of it.

Their support (Should you pay for platinum or above) is responsive and educated in whatever products you need support on.

What do you dislike?

The ramp up time for support on new product sets leaves much to be desired. Keeping their products up to date requires a lot of time and effort in a large organization. It also requires a ton of finesse if you have multiple products deployed since they can have disruptive interactions with each other. They have been getting better with this, but the product sets aren't quite there yet and it requires significant time and effort to move to the new platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you dedicate the time, effort, and staff to be successful in an implementation. Make sure to involve all business units during implementation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed insight into the security posture of our organization and the ability to automate many mundane tasks. The McAfee Endpoint Security suite accomplishes this and more. It allows you to do a whole lot more and allows you to be as creative as your mind allows to accomplish many different tasks to increase security within your organization.

"The Endpoint Protection"

What do you like best?

One of the features I like about this product is how I am able to define firewall rules for specific programs. Also, the web control add-on to the browser inject the system well. We can easily customize the system according to what our work is and apply adaptive rule sets and IP spoof protection are amazing features.

What do you dislike?

It should have been a light program and the RAM usage high. Sometimes it becomes overprotective and creates problem in entering a known website.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problem trying to solve is how to secure and to administer Mac computers.. The benefits of this product are easily seen since we already use ePO for all the other computers in the organization.

"Effective drive encryption protection against loss and unaurhorized users"

What do you like best?

I like best regarding the ability to decrypt a hard drive through a boot CD without having to remove the hard drive and daisy chain to another computer in case of a crash. Also the Self Service Portal that allow administrative functions to generate a code to bypass the McAfee Drive Encryption preboot encryption screen, reset credential PIV card, and display a complete list of computers that are running McAfee Drive Encryption that I am able to administer.

What do you dislike?

The process to enroll new computers for drive encryption with the servers is automatic yet it can take at least 2 or more hours if there are a lot of new computers waiting for the same enrollment request. Also authorized full decryption of a hard drive of about 300GB can take up to about 3 days.

Recommendations to others considering the product

McAfee EndPoint Protection is a great product that works well with a large corporation with seamless integration with your operating system deployment, allows end-users the ability to easily recover files from corrupted operating system through an authorized file, and the ability to administrator protected computers on the network.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

McAfee Endpoint Protection provides a peace of mind for protection against loss of PII in case of a loss due to the privacy act and to safeguard against the breach of personally identifiable information.

"Very good protection for business machines"

What do you like best?

- It keeps on scanning the machine for any virus and provides real-time scanning of virus and other security risks from internet to your laptop/desktop machines.

- Automatic updates keep it up to date to fight with latest threats

- Provides internet firewall protection to machine

What do you dislike?

Although it provides protection from viruses I feel it is still lacking in providing protection from latest and more severe threats which keep on appearing on market. I would like it to provide total end to end protection in this single product and no need to buy many other products to get safety.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The security protection provided by Mccafe end point protection is good at basic levels. It would save the machine from all day to day threats and provides good firewall. For advanced protection it may not be able to block all the risks created by malwares and viruses.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Using it to protect and secure business data from generic security threats on internet.

- Protecting machines from slowing down due to malwares and virus running in background and eating up processing power.

"Easy deployment with advanced features"

What do you like best?

Deployment and administration is so fast and easy. Policies are pushes automatically with granular control of products and individual product policies. It doesn't use much endpoint (workstation) resources.

What do you dislike?

The product consumes more RaM. This becomes a hindrance to computer users with low configurations. Also McAfee Endpoint Protection does not completely detect virus but is sufficient for home networks. The system sometimes hangs when McAfee Endpoint Protection is scanning the whole system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It provides a good security for data encryption. Blocking unwanted sites that spread malware is a very useful feature. The basic security requirements for an enterprise can be easily met using this software. It also supports all type of endpoints security.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Encrpytion and data allowing authorized persons to access. The business issue attempting to explain is the manner by which to secure and oversee macintosh PCs in an enterprise environment. Most of the people think that macintosh PCs are secure all alone and there is no need any sort of hostile to infection programming introduced or malware location capacities.

"Full time administrator of ePO and related productions"

What do you like best?

One of the best features I like about the McAfee Endpoint Protection product is how I am able to define firewall rules for specific programs. The ability to white list what certain applications are able to do gives me peace of mind that nothing suspicious is going on behind the scenes. This requirment becomes more and more important as hackers continue to become more advanced in their attack scenerios.

What do you dislike?

Similarly, it seems to be one of the most frustrating features as well. Often times when I whitelist an application for specific ports and services, I will have to reconfirm network access every time it opens. There does not seem to be any support for whitelisting by product family or signature. So every time program updates, I have to re-whitelist.

Also the overall GUI interface seems to be lacking. I think some aesthetic changes might be in order to make it look nice. But that is just a personal preference.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Using this product for baseline security for mac is a very good idea. I think when you get granular with custom settings this product lacks. So long as meeting basic security requirements are your goal. This product will fit in just fine.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problem trying to solve is how to secure and administer mac computers in an enterprise environment. THe benefits of this product are very easily seen since we already use ePO for all the other machines in the organization.

People think that mac computers are secure on their own and there is no need to have any type of anti virus software installed or malware detection capabilities. But that is just incorrect and mac operating systems are becoming more and more of a target at the product continues to grow in market share and gaining more attention.

"Easy administration with core options within a single system console"

What do you like best?

Easy of access for the end user, system can be handled from single user console.

Remote accessing and security for end points like laptops in which data is encrypted, which serves as data privacy and security.

We can configure user specific dashboards, timely support from Mcafee team in configuring rules.

MEP comes with backup tools which serves as an save point

What do you dislike?

Takes more CPU utilization and lot of memory.

When the system is under scan it will hang screen and other processes and very difficult to work with.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Legacy systems or low configuration systems cannot support mcafee process fully,

Mcafee supports all type of endpoints security which also includes macs.

We will get support from Mcafee team for advanced configurations.

Right now I am using Mcafee total security from last 1 year, no issues till date.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

System with high configuration is better to opt for Mcafee endpoint,

Good time to time updates we receive from Mcafee.

Data loss can be prevented but make sure your system configuration supports.
