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.

Pros

McAfee Enterprise Security Manager

Zscaler Internet Access

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.
Philip Clarke | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zscaler Internet Access

  • Securing third party access is a bit complex to implement. These are our third party partners who require access to our data center on a temporary basis.
  • It is a bit of a learning curve to transform from the VPN and appliance architecture to this model.

Zscaler is a mandatory solution required by almost every large organization with a workforce working remotely or using cloud-based apps. Its deployment is relatively easy and it keeps on working in the background without actively bothering the user. Apart from a few weird messages which a user is unable to comprehend, Zscaler is able to provide fast and safe access to the internet and other external applications.

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.

While overall support was always nice and polite, most of the time it was hard to reach them and it took awhile for them to respond back in urgent cases. It was probably an isolated case but, still, it's hard to manage a tool without proper support from the vendor when in need.

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.

I have previously used Websense and Bluecoat, both with mixed results. Zscaler is the superior product if for no other reason that is far easier to deploy and manage

Return on Investment

McAfee Enterprise Security Manager

  • McAfee Antivirus is not a leader in the field and I don't recommend this product.
  • HIPS and Encryption are easy to manage.
  • Great tool for enterprise deployments.

Zscaler Internet Access

  • Zscaler is helping to track productivity.
  • Zscaler is helping us monitor bandwidth usage to sites that are less involved with the business.
  • Zscaler took 2-4 members of our team a substantial amount of time to get all of the details hammered out.
