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.
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.
