The McAfee Endpoint Security platform addresses future needs that are critical to the work I do in the organization I work for because it helps me: Mitigate the dangers of data loss through the use of DLP. In addition, its improved remediation skills help us to bypass ransomware. With enhanced dynamic application containment and remediation technologies, we have the ability to intelligently protect our own endpoints. McAfee does just about everything any organization would need to defend their share of corporate IT.

Our University uses McAfee Endpoint Security to secure all devices across all its campuses. Each computer connected to the university’s private domain receives a mandatory McAfee client installation. This client is responsible for preventing any cases of malicious activities performed or attempted on the machine. It sends reports to the McAfee e-Policy Orchestration Management System. This console enables us (the security analysts) to remotely manage our endpoints/assets where the Endpoint Security Client is present and is connected to the internet. Each department in our university, irrespective of their separate policies, has this client installed. The endpoint security client acts like the local antivirus on each machine and prevents malware using its virus database. This makes it easy to detect and prevent at the client level and maintain safety. Although it is a little heavy on some systems and has cases of false positives and false negatives (which is critical in this case), this does a better job than the default Windows defender. With the management console on top, we can force update, run scans, etc on all our endpoints in parallel without manually visiting the respective department. This saves a ton of time and effort.

McAfee Endpoint Security is currently being managed/administered by our cyber-security team and endpoint security team. Using McAfee Endpoint Security, we use it for its VirusScan, HIPS, and Disk Encryption features. It helps us identify threats that occur on the workstations or servers. It provides excellent visibility across the enterprise when it comes to threats, both internal and external.

Data security has become a very serious issue in the modern workforce. One has to be ready for all kinds of digital hacking attempts by your competitors and others who want to sell your information for money. For that, we have installed McAfee Endpoint Security antivirus in all of the machines of all the departments.

McAfee Endpoint Security was used in a combination for a central managed of our clients. McAfee did enable and check Bitdefender and Virus for the client was made by McAfee. An EPO server was in place for upgrading the clients with pattern and software. The solution is in place at our managed service clients for customers and was in place for our own clients, till we moved to Cisco AMP.

This is a very important app that is always updating. Because of my profession, my team of research professionals and myself spend much time connected with the internet. Nowadays we are doing a research project about arthritis, so we always deal with the internet. Because of that reason when we are surfing internet this software automatically blocks unnecessary links, sites, advertisements and many other things. We don’t have to worry about our safety because this software always deals with our privacy and safety.

I would recommend it as it has so far worked very well, a good antivirus protection system, it does not affect your operating system or slow it down, it is a very reliable program, easy to manage and customize that allows you to have your device protected at all times. It is almost being used by my whole organization.

The McAfee Endpoint Protection is a standard protection for enterprise Networks, small-scale networks, and a single user or multiple user systems. It has reliable features such as security updates, the ability for scanning systems, McAfee Agent Status Monitoring. It can be controlled by a McAfee agent which shows latest details of the software. Such as the time when the antivirus has been updated, the version of antivirus, last security update check.

We currently only use McAfee Endpoint Protection Suite in the IT department and have it deployed on each of our servers. We've been using this software to protect our servers for over 10 years and have seen the product grow positively over the years. We basically use the software suite as one layer of protection from viruses, malware, and unwanted intrusions.
