    Its middle of the road and should suit most applications well
    John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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

    ControlNow (Discontinued)

    • An instant scan of file level downloads so that introduction of a variant file is limited before the scan engine clears it.
    • Dashboard use of the agents available allows for near real-time review and action without directed access to the station.

    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

    ControlNow (Discontinued)

    • Dashboard refresh when you have over 100 end agents can be lagging at times
    • The agent install process has potential to hang without alert or warning unless your paying attention through the complete install
    • The silent install process can be problematic when dealing with large-scale networks with varied OS models

    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.

    McAfee Endpoint Security 7.7
    Based on 10 answers
    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.

    ControlNow more nimble and less impactful on the local PC
    John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.

    • At current we are on build up and the ROI isnt a factor
    John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.
