McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

What I like the most is the fact that McAfee tries many different approaches to hit its target, securing the customers. Its feature-rich reporting, dashboarding, and deployment tools are very useful. The engine is just smarter and the processor performance is very much improved. Summary Centralized control of agents to prevent local users from overriding settings is very beneficial.

Skybox Security

I can't think where Skybox is not appropriate - maybe in smaller companies depending on fund availability. The developers are constantly improving and getting the system to where it needs to be for management of next-generation firewalls and audit support.

Pros

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

  • Static malware scans for known bad processes and files works well and can be schedules on endpoints easily
  • Preventing users from accessing USB drives and other peripherals is easily configured. We can also allow users to access to USB drives with user codes for the times they need it for business reasons.
  • ePO provides access into our MSME software so that we're not managing many different products from different locations.
  • In recent years the console has gotten much easier to navigate even though there is a ton of information to be accessed.

Cons

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

  • Due to Microsoft Windows Updates, support and KB articles are a must.
  • Deployment tasks might need a lot of configurations before.
  • ePO upgrade requires a lot of preparation steps.

Skybox Security

  • A cloud piece/offering would be a good place for improvement.

Overall, McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator server is a great product that we have been using for years. Support for McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator can sometimes be confusing. We first have to determine whether the issue is actually the server, or if it is an issue with the product being managed.

Alternatives Considered

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

We selected McAfee EPO partly because we were already using McAfee VSE, but mostly because there are very few other AV management packages out there that offer the same level of enterprise management tools. That's where it really shines - deployment and management of AV in a large organization of Windows servers and workstations.

Return on Investment

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

  • Allows us to control threats which can mean less wide-spread virus issues
  • Allowed the service desk to make sure a computer is safe and up to date before adding it back to the domain. This saves the onsite team time because we can check on this remotely.
  • Using this product allows us to better manage all of the machines on and off the network.

  • Positive ROI is in change management
