Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection

It's well suited to most environments, however, it has some compatibility issues if you need to deploy it to older operating systems that are out of support (which is understandable of course). If you work in an environment where you have older OS's in the business, the client may not be able to be installed remotely, or at all (depending on the OS). However, if the product supports the OS's you run, it's a very good product to invest in for peace of mind. I was also able to run it on the servers with no impact on their performance

Pros

Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection

  • The initial setup with Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection is speedy and straightforward since you do not have to dedicate a server for the management side of it - it is cloud-based!
  • Reporting of malicious items is a breeze from the management web portal. I can quickly review items from my cell phone as I walk through the office, from home or wherever I am and need to check on these items. Other systems require you to VPN to your office, open software, log in, and start reviewing. But being cloud-based makes this so much simpler!

  • Customizability - Granular management of policies and security controls, able to tune and mold solutions to individual organizations.
  • Reliability - When configured properly, McAfee solutions rarely have issues. In the case they do, support is phenomenal.

Cons

Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection

  • Premise based management tool no longer the focus of development in favor of new cloud based protection.
  • Can't migrate to cloud based protection easily and requires different licensing.
  • They released a definition package last year that caused all systems that received it to block all network access, inbound and outbound. The repair process was manual and took 15 minutes per machine to fix. The only way to learn about it was from their website and it was not easy to determine that Malwarebytes was the cause.
  • Management tool does not auto-update client programs. You need to either perform a push update or update your GPO program deployment for the new package.
  • Email alerts about clients only come in after the workstation has sent an update to the management server. The management server is not accessible over the internet, so reports from remote users can take days after the incident.
  • The anti-exploit module does not like any JAVA programs. Barracuda JAVA VPN and Supermicro SuperDoctor get blocked. There is no exception list, so you have to disable protection.
  • You can not make exclusions for programs you need protection to be disabled for.
  • Some programs can be disabled by end users.
  • No notification process to inform you of new updates for end user applications or the management system.

McAfee Total Protection

  • Updates while always current and valuable occur very often and need to be administered constantly if your systems administrators do not schedule them on a regular basis.
  • Depending on your system it can be a resource burden when running in the background.
  • Interface can be difficult to navigate at times for non-experienced users.

Alternatives Considered

Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection

It provides excellent cover in terms of ransomware, and when running various testing tools to see the effectiveness, it scored much more highly than our existing product. It also has excellent recovery options, with the roll back feature. I selected it because of the experience I'd had in the past with the free tool, which is always the first choice we go to when we've had an infection on a machine that our AV has been unable to remove
