Pros and Cons
- The fact that my laptop's full hard drive is encrypted and a very long is password is required after switching on the laptop to enter is quite reassuring in terms of security.
- Never has my laptop been affected by a virus or malware. It quite often gets updates of the latest virus definitions that are wreaking havoc in the world.
- My biggest flak with McAfee Endpoint Security is that it is quite resource-intensive. It does tend to make the system a little slow. You get security at the expense of your machine's speed.
- Even though the drive encryption makes the system more secure, it takes a lot of time to first enter the very long password, and then for it to decrypt the whole machine. This sometimes clashes with Windows update and causes a lot of complications which leads to boot loops.
