Lookout

Lookout is excellent for mobile device security. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a simple solution to guarantee peace of mind when keeping mobile devices secure. It's also excellent for finding a device that's been lost remotely, including an excellent feature for enabling audio on a device when it was put in silent mode locally. The web UI is easy to use and allows for powerful functionality through a simple interface. Lastly, it is an excellent secondary backup solution. I'd recommend having other potential backup solutions as well in case this premium feature ever expires and you aren't sure whether you have a most recent contact backup within Lookout.

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

Lookout

  • It emits alerts before any vulnerability found, thus avoiding damages.
  • It has a very simple interface so it is easy to use.
  • It allows the protection against vulnerabilities as well as the backup of information and search before the loss of the mobile or theft.
  • It runs in the background so it does not interrupt any activity.
  • Its access is very flexible since only the internet is required to access through the application or web.

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

Lookout

  • They're the global, mobile cyber experts we trust. They're ahead of the curve already. All I could suggest is, keep going in that direction.
  • Perhaps, send out an occasional , brief update on global trends that business executives should be aware of, even when Lookout is already on it.
  • Keep it brief, with a case study where a proactive action was taken and an event was avoided. Those would be shared enterprise-wide.
  • More PR about your proactive actions would be educational for us all. NO FUD, will ever work, but seeing that there are actions we can take, even to the newest of threats will be very effective.

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

Lookout

Lower cost, and gets the basic to tracking devices. The backup feature and ease of use is good.

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

Lookout

  • Lookout has minimized lost devices, by essentially enabling all users to find their device no matter where it may be lost. Almost all devices are recoverable with Lookout installed and an ability to get to the current location of the device. This prevents excessive replacement device costs.
  • If a device cannot be physically recovered all personal data on the device can be wiped remotely. This reduces data breach risk for a lost/stolen device.

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.
