Data Protector

I believe it is very well suited for the Unix/Linux brands but once you get into the Windows side of things there are much better options out there. The other problem is that the data is in a format that only works with HP Data Protector and cannot be migrated to another system should things go that direction in the future. Once you are locked into HP Data Protector you are truly locked in

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

Data Protector

  • Easy to install and set up cell manager, deploy clients and configure backup devices. Integration options for databases and virtual environments makes backup and restore of these systems easier through the GUI.
  • Scheduling options allow the user to set specific times for backups of a host or group them together with the advance scheduling option and set priorities of which systems get access to backup devices.
  • Licensing options are tiered and can scale from a very small environment to a larger one when needed.

  • 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

Data Protector

  • Tech support - every person I spoke with had a different idea on how to fix a problem. Many times they caused the problem resulting in double or triple work.

  • 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.

It was just not a good fit for our organization. We have an EMC SAN, Data Domain backup storage, and VMWare. Without any other HP software or hardware in our environment I do not see the need to continue using a product that is not well integrated with our other brands

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.

We liked that HP Data Protector could go back to a specific recovery date where IBM TSM could not, in certain cases.

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

Data Protector

  • Same solution for 17+ years provides stable environment and builds in house expertise saving business on training.
  • Licensing structure provides cost savings to business.
  • Ease of use for operators provides quick response when restores are needed by the business.

  • 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.
