It is suited well for ad-hoc and scheduled application vulnerability scans. You must review the results to manually filter out false-positives. You must always keep in mind that this is only a vulnerability scan. It can only find a certain class of vulnerabilities, and it can only do that so well. You should definitely not rely on this tool alone for identifying problems. That being said, I have used it along with every other major commercial vulnerability scanner and find it to the best overall ROI compared to more expensive commercial scanners that don't necessarily give you a better user experience or better vulnerability results. I rarely need support from the vendor, but when I do, they have been responsive and able to solve the issue quickly.

McAfee Endpoint Security

It provides great web security and will protect your devices against viruses and malware when paired with other security software and hardware. For instance, we have multiple layers of security set up so if McAfee misses something then one of our other barriers will catch the infection or intrusion before it reaches the network. I would not suggest using this product as a standalone agent because I do not think it will be as effective when working by itself. The dashboard also makes it convenient to manage devices, policies, and settings from wherever you are so it's an ideal solution for any IT department to use. I would just suggest using something else as a backup so your network isn't left vulnerable.

Pros

Acunetix

  • Fast.
  • Easy-to-use.
  • Great customer support.
  • Reporting features.
  • Supports importing state files from other popular application testing tools.
  • Has other features built-in beyond just scanning for vulnerabilities.

McAfee Endpoint Security

  • The detection level is better than Windows defender.
  • The e-policy orchestration management console that comes with it enables us to oversee the devices remotely, run scans on the endpoints, and update their virus definitions forcibly.
  • It sends regular updates and therefore each endpoints stays safe individually.
  • Furthermore, it has a very easy to understand interface.

Cons

Acunetix

  • Does not support multiple endpoints well (e.g. apps and services that do not reside at the same URL).
  • Has authentication problems with modern enterprise apps which involve a lot of redirects to unrelated endpoints, federated IDs, SSO, etc. This is related to the first point.
  • The vulnerability detection capability is not as robust as Burp Suite Pro + extensions, Metasploit + auxiliary modules, Nmap + scripts, etc.

McAfee Endpoint Security

  • My biggest flak with McAfee Endpoint Security is that it is quite resource-intensive. It does tend to make the system a little slow. You get security at the expense of your machine's speed.
  • Even though the drive encryption makes the system more secure, it takes a lot of time to first enter the very long password, and then for it to decrypt the whole machine. This sometimes clashes with Windows update and causes a lot of complications which leads to boot loops.

The support is pretty good, and I haven't had any issues with getting the highest quality technical support when there are issues. Tech support representatives that I have dealt with know the product quite well and have solved many issues that I have had with the product in the past. The only issue I have with support is that it can be quite expensive.

Alternatives Considered

Every year, we re-evaluate the tools we are using and licensing. We balance the ever-changing vendor licensing-models, costs, tool features/usability, etc. For the last few years, this has been the best overall commercial tool for our specific use case. However, this is only one of many tools that we use and need.

McAfee Endpoint Security

If you have Cisco tools and equipment globally in place and just for the clients additionally McAfee you should have a deeper look. We wanted to install end-2-end security over all networks and hardware. This was a big point for Cisco. For a managed client team, Cisco is a step which they do not want in the first round.

Return on Investment

Acunetix

  • Saved money compared to other commercial scanners, especially over the long run.
  • Scan speed seems to be pretty good compared to some of the bulkier commercial products out there. However, that largely has to do with proper configuration.
  • A downside is that is requires a bit of extra work just to get it set up to scan APIs, web services, etc.

McAfee Endpoint Security

  • The first thing is protection. According to my career I have to always deal with the internet. If I was not a user of this software many times I would have lost all of my documents due to a virus attack. Many times we plug USB devices to a PC and after scanning the USB I saw many threats using this software. So if I am not a user of this software I would have lost my documents many time. Thank you McAfee Endpoint security!
  • Another thing is this software is always concerned about our privacy. It means this is not only a virus blocker it’s anti-hacker software. They place extra effort to our privacy. They auto detect email and block the emails which email trying to steal our data.
  • Another thing is the save our passwords. So we don’t have to waste our time to type passwords we can simply enter an account through facial recognition or fingerprint. So no one can access my account without my permission. It’s helped make my work easy and I don’t have to memorize my password.
