We were using McAfee Advanced Threat Defense as primary source of security in our organization. It was very easy to implement and it has best detection rate as compared to other antivirus softwares. It also has a sandbox facility, which we use to test unknown applications before deploying them to the production environment. We also use a VPN to keep our web experience safe.
  • Virus and threat prevention
  • Sandbox option
  • VPN
  • It does run flawlessly in background
  • It can detect email threats too
  • Cost-wise a bit high
  • Cannot access through remote
It is suited for people who are looking to secure their PCs from malware attacks. There is also email threat prevention where it will detect unwanted mails which come through our inbox. The sandbox feature comes in handy when you want to test new applications that will prevent it spreading to multiple systems in an environment if it is malicious. It has good customer support for all our technical queries. Since pricing is quite high, small-scale organizations can't afford it.

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense is an excellent antivirus software against all kinds of malicious attacks. It is installed in most major departments and is very helpful in protecting our confidential data from any unwanted attack. Now we are no longer afraid of cyberattacks, as it is an effective tool against Malware and all such dangerous offenses.
  • Its basic strength is its detecting power, which detects viruses within a fraction of seconds.
  • It repairs threats efficiently in less time.
  • Works quite smoothly in the background.
  • There should be more updates.
  • It is heavy on our system's storage or we need a high-storage system to run this tool.
  • Its pricing is disappointing.
If someone is looking for software that would be able to work well against all advanced forms of cyberattack, then McAfee Advanced Threat Defense is the best option to go for. We haven't faced any scenario in which any viruses would be able to get access to our files. Only its pricing needs to be a little lower and there should be more updates.

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense Is being used by the whole organization, it protects our computers against hackers and against virus attacks, we have it installed in all our desktops and laptops and whenever an employee logs into each computer, it detects the activity and scan any malicious acts then it saves the process
  • Threat detection
  • Threat protection
  • Threat repair
  • It is costly
  • The software is slow
It is most suited in larger organizations where policies don't have firewall restrictions and the domains are not yet protected and it is less appropriate in organizations that have already implemented firewalls and necessary threat detection mechanisms. Some organizations have a larger honeypot and they implement specific algorithms to protect their systems

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense is used throughout our organization and on every laptop as a defense against online threats and intrusions. For the most part, it runs quietly in the background and many folks do not even know it is on their system and running. It updates automatically and starts when the computer is started so no one forgets to turn it on.
  • Automatic updates.
  • Runs in the background.
  • Can be heavy.
  • Not easy to override.
McAfee Advanced Threat Defense is good for large organizations where there are many users and profiles that all need the same permissions and settings. It provides a fairly seamless experience and is effective at stopping threats with little input from end-users. That being said, if there are many profiles or individuals that all need specific settings, McAfee Advanced Threat Defense does work, just cumbersome.
Personally, I have only called our internal IT team about needing changes to permissions, not McAfee itself, but our IT team can make the changes though it seems to take them longer than I would think it needs to take. As someone who administers a different program, with different permissions, I would feel they should be able to make the exceptions faster and easier.
