McAfee Total Protection

The McAfee suite of internet security products has been my go-to source for internet security for over 7 years. Featuring a snappy interface, frequent updates, and an amazing customer service and support system, McAfee delivers a high quality enterprise level security product at a significant cost saving value to the user. It has been frequently recommended to my staff and my clients to provide their cyber security needs.

VIPRE

Robust protection with a small footprint. Catches all malware and viruses, while respecting the exclusions put in place by our organization. Pricing was very aggressive compared to other products. Great management application, where you can manage the installations and even update third-party apps on those machines from that portal. Great product for a great price.

VIPRE

  • Vipre Antivirus constantly scans your computer in the background without a need for user intervention.
  • In one program Vipre can successfully protect all your computing devices from both malicious virus attacks as where vicious spyware intrusions.
  • You won't feel any slowness or sluggishness with Vipre installed & running in the background while you continue to use your computing devices.

Cons

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.

  • When using older versions of Outlook I have seen the plugin cause sluggish behavior and hangs, in 2007 and 2010 versions specifically.
  • For some business applications, there are .dll's and libraries and application .exe's that can be misidentified as virus or trojans. While it is fairly easy to whitelist these once discovered, new implementors should be aware that they will need to carefully look through their initial virus scan reports to find and whitelist these items.

VIPRE is very easy to use and administer. You have a lot of functionality from the server on what you can do with the clients. It has proved useful when I can't access a client any other way. I can reboot the computer from the server and then usually get back into that machine.

VIPRE support is usually pretty quick. Sometimes you have to get a lot of information to send back so they can see the issue. This has not been too bad and I understand why it's needed. VIPRE also has a free rescue tool that is very useful and easy to use. There have been others but VIPRE seems to keep theirs updated. It's my go-to even outside of work.

VIPRE

We have encountered many different anti-virus programs over the years. VIPRE combines an anti-virus program with anti-spyware to provide comprehensive protection against viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, and spyware. And it still tops other competitors by being affordable, with very low overhead.

Return on Investment

McAfee Total Protection

  • McAfee briefings have alerted us to threats BEFORE they happen allowing us to shore up networks and security.
  • Frequent updates keep our system protected and provide valuable usage and system data that lets us determine the overall efficiency of our network and systems in one suite of products.
  • McAfee's constant 24/7 protection has saved money by assuring our systems are protected and therefore have saved us time by avoiding costly reconstiution of compromised systems.

VIPRE

  • Vipre pushed and update for device control last year. It caused our workstations to reboot every 20 min. They resolved it within a day - which to me was too long. But in the end, we got everything sorted out. This certainly caused pause for the next renewal cycle. We did end up sticking with them.
  • Vipre helps keep us from having to touch every single computer we add to the domain. Remote deployment is one of my favorite features. Deploy on-demand is also good to have available - which it does.
  • Patch management again - it is a key reason we stuck with Vipre. Endpoint protection is the way to go.
