A key element is to have a completely integrated suite of products all working in unison, and though this can be achieved by having a multi-vendor environment it is never as clean as a single vendor solution. Also we would look at the outsourcing of certain IT security functions, in the case of SIEM solutions it can make more sense to have this activity outsourced where the third party has a larger scope and more realtime experience of event s that are happening to other clients and can then apply the incident response to all of their customers.ESM is great, McAfee AV, not so muchMcAfee Enterprise Security Manager was used to deploy full disk encryption to sensitive end points, manage the HIPS, and end point security across the enterprise of 5000 + endpoints.,It is a great central management tool with great reports and dashboards.

McAfee Enterprise Security Manager is used not only for its log collection capabilities but also for its advanced threat intelligence. We are using the product as part of moving into Intel's complete suite of products, where appliance integration will bring a commonality to our incident capabilities and help with faster response times and visibility.
  • Advanced Threat intelligence gives us the ability to prioritise alerts quickly and efficiently.
  • SIEM log collection allows us to integrate our other Intel products to a centralised point.
  • Physical appliances is one of the areas we have moved away from, so the ability for ESM to be available as a VDI was key.
  • If there is a requirement to integrate into other vendor products i.e. (log sharing) then this was very cumbersome.
  • Integration of vulnerability scanning that is available in other vendor products would be a good addition.
  • When integrating all of Intel's products a third party consultancy is usually required, where other vendor products can be configured without this additional cost.

McAfee Enterprise Security Manager is well placed when the environment has other Intel products. We operate McAfee Move and the two products work extremely well together. The anti-virus product can be very cumbersome if used with another SIEM solution when log collecting.

We have other areas where intel solutions are not in use and in these circumstances we used another well-known SIEM solution that had an easier implementation phase than Intel's and where remote access was challenging.

McAfee Enterprise Security Manager was used to deploy full disk encryption to sensitive end points, manage the HIPS, and end point security across the enterprise of 5000 + endpoints.
  • It is a great central management tool with great reports and dashboards.
  • It can easily show devices out of compliance.
  • ESM is easy to manage and maintain.
  • Some tools it manages lack features.
  • ESM can have some issues with upgrading.
  • MFA support is needed.
It is great for deploying and managing enterprise endpoint protection; McAfee Antivirus is still not a leader.
