McAfee Enterprise Security Manager

McAfee is a good solution if you're in a medium/large company and if you're looking for a solution that can be customized and expanded. I also recommend if you have the most common log sources on your environment, since McAfee supports the major log sources (but lack a lot of small vendors).In my opinion, I wouldn't recommend McAfee for small companies, since it's not that easy to manage and maintain.

It is well suited for environments that are looking for a solution that is top notch for vulnerability scanning, and is the most accurate at doing so. It would also fit environments that have a lot of endpoints to scan or like to have scanning done on an automatic basis.It is less appropriate in environments that want to use a platform right away, without getting training in how to use it, or reading documentation on the product.

Cons

McAfee Enterprise Security Manager

  • If there is a requirement to integrate into other vendor products i.e. (log sharing) then this was very cumbersome.
  • Integration of vulnerability scanning that is available in other vendor products would be a good addition.
  • When integrating all of Intel's products a third party consultancy is usually required, where other vendor products can be configured without this additional cost.

Qualys Cloud Platform

  • Price tag
  • Have the license based on live IPs, not on entire subnets, so then you pay for the exactly amount of servers you have.

McAfee Enterprise Security Manager overall is a great tool. It is effective in today's setting, wherein lots of potential threats are lurking. Its operations within the network are seamless. Users won't even notice that a SIEM is working in the background. But in today's trend, most of the businesses is heading towards the migration to cloud, which McAfee should improve its integration with.

We feel Qualys provides required perimeter security for our infrastructure which is hosted on multiple clouds. Together with a comprehensive scanning and continuous monitoring, Qualys is cloud agnostic which gives us flexibility to use it across multiple clouds. We also like the daily reporting and its integration with other productivity tools.

Alternatives Considered

McAfee Enterprise Security Manager

We selected McAfee Enterprise Security Manager because the pricing is competitive in the industry. It is very reliable. The vendor offers good support in real time. Offers the results that we have been looking for. The ability to get the logs may be of last 2 years in a matter of seconds. The ability to retain logs for a very long time.

Qualys Cloud Platform

Qualysguard gave us the tools we needed that were benificial to our job without us having to do too much manual interaction such as with Nmap, Metasploit , etc. It was a very efficient platform that I would go to again.
