McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator is a data loss protection option, from McAfee / Intel Security.https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/S8/xI/0E0W2KFJ23X8.jpegThe Orchestral Security DashboardWe wanted a way of having a single console to cover most of our security management and McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator has an easy to use and informative dashboard approach that lets you build a single pane of glass view is so desired. Multi-consoles didn't allow the efficiencies of the department to be made and became an overhead and a bottleneck when trying to discover areas of concern.,A unified dashboard view provides security intelligence across different endpoints. Allowed us to access our third party IT infrastructure from a single security management console. Where workflows were cumbersome and messy this allowed them to be more streamlined.,Setup was more time consuming than expected. Consolidated with McAfee products better than other vendor products. Support for lesser-known vendors was not available.,7,Licensing is always negotiable Brings together all McAfee products and ROI Time needs to be spent to make sure the product is defined and set up to perform maximum efficiency otherwise any ROI gains can be lost.,,AlienVault USMMCAfee EPO- solution to your organisation end point protectionMcAfee is used throughout our organization as an endpoint in defending organization machines from various threats. McAfee helps us in detecting the malware or threats and deletes them automatically with its updated signatures. The installation is also super simple and keeps our machines alive from various virus/Trojans which are building daily across the world.,We can deploy easily to wide range of machines across the organization using ePolicy Orchestrator. Easily manageable and better UI which helps users understand what is the machine, what kind of OS it has, what are the detections it found in that machine, and what are the things that are blocked. McAfee helps us in detecting threats across the machines with rogue sensors which will be used in detection of unmanaged systems in the organization.,It has a slow mechanism when adding custom threat feeds. For example, if McAfee didn't have a signature or detection about a new virus and we try to add it to our console it is like a really big process in adding that to our available signatures. Whenever a scan is performed, the system CPU utilization goes up 100 percent. Installation fails due to difference in timestamp when we try to shuffle between packages.,7,When a new virus comes into existence it fails in updating its signatures. It really takes long time to get updated if we want to add on our own, because if we rely on McAfee it may detect and delete and if it doesn't, then systems are at huge risk which impacts business reputation. McAfee need to optimize its CPU utilization as it makes users suffer in performing other jobs and this indirectly affects business if it is a high priority machine. McAfee is very easy in deploying which doesn't use much resource time in deploying across hundreds of machines globally.,Norton Internet Security,MalwarebytesAs the meme says "All your Protection are belong to us"We use McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator to manage all our McAfee Antivirus and DLP endpoint sensors across our whole organization. McAfee has been used here to provide on-access scanning for malware, static scanning after business hours and is also being used to prevent users from accessing USB Devices and removable media. McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator has also been used to manage our Exchange MSME software policies and other configuration settings. We also use McAfee's SiteAdvisor to provide an extra layer of protection for the end users web browser. McAfee ePO provides one pane of glass to manage our corporations malware protection.,Static malware scans for known bad processes and files works well and can be schedules on endpoints easily Preventing users from accessing USB drives and other peripherals is easily configured. We can also allow users to access to USB drives with user codes for the times they need it for business reasons. ePO provides access into our MSME software so that we're not managing many different products from different locations. In recent years the console has gotten much easier to navigate even though there is a ton of information to be accessed.,Within DLP the email alerting you cannot stipulate specific vendor id's or types of devices to alert on. It will just alert on everything no if it gets hit by any policy. Because the scans are for static/known processes and files you will not be protected by unknown/0-day malware. There have been many times that a DAT update will find and alert very old .js files and it never caught before and are many times flagged as Artemis generic. The FP rate could be improved upon. Price, it's fairly expensive.,7,As with most things the price of products goes up and more-so if your business is growing. We've been able to provide auditors with tangible evidence that our network is protected because of the reporting McAfee ePO provides. Auditors like McAfee because it's been around almost forever and is a mature product. Being a mature product, though, it's very much set in the way it does things and as such there's not a whole lot of innovation.,,Mimecast Secure Email GatewayMcAfee ePO - Security Management In One BoxWe are using it across the whole organization. McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator is providing us with anti-virus, host intrusion protection, and a way to manage all of our PCs through one console.,Systems Manager. We are able to view all the systems in our environment in one dashboard. This gives us the chance to see when PCs last communicated with our McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) server and if they are up to date on their virus definitions. Ease of pushing out anti-virus to our endpoints. Agentless Virtual Machine anti-virus. No need to have anti-virus on the VM it goes on the ESXi host which scans the datastores.,Clunky interface. Lots of information but not presented neatly. More configuration needed to stop some of the bigger exploits.,9,Gained back time by having ePO deploy all the necessary products to the endpoints Better managed environment by seeing which endpoints were not receiving updates and being able to get them up to date. Had a little bit of a learning curve to get everything working properly. Ability to report on anything that is going on in the environment.,Vipre,VMware Horizon View, AirWatch

We wanted a way of having a single console to cover most of our security management and McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator has an easy to use and informative dashboard approach that lets you build a single pane of glass view is so desired. Multi-consoles didn't allow the efficiencies of the department to be made and became an overhead and a bottleneck when trying to discover areas of concern.
  • A unified dashboard view provides security intelligence across different endpoints.
  • Allowed us to access our third party IT infrastructure from a single security management console.
  • Where workflows were cumbersome and messy this allowed them to be more streamlined.
  • Setup was more time consuming than expected.
  • Consolidated with McAfee products better than other vendor products.
  • Support for lesser-known vendors was not available.
As quite a few of McAfee's products are owned within the organisation it made sense to review ePolicy Orchestrator. Once the decision was made to go with this product it brought together various data streams from otherwise standalone products and gave us a single view of where possible problems existed or where possible problems could exist.

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator Review: "MCAfee EPO- solution to your organisation end point protection"

McAfee is used throughout our organization as an endpoint in defending organization machines from various threats. McAfee helps us in detecting the malware or threats and deletes them automatically with its updated signatures. The installation is also super simple and keeps our machines alive from various virus/Trojans which are building daily across the world.
  • We can deploy easily to wide range of machines across the organization using ePolicy Orchestrator.
  • Easily manageable and better UI which helps users understand what is the machine, what kind of OS it has, what are the detections it found in that machine, and what are the things that are blocked.
  • McAfee helps us in detecting threats across the machines with rogue sensors which will be used in detection of unmanaged systems in the organization.
  • It has a slow mechanism when adding custom threat feeds. For example, if McAfee didn't have a signature or detection about a new virus and we try to add it to our console it is like a really big process in adding that to our available signatures.
  • Whenever a scan is performed, the system CPU utilization goes up 100 percent.
  • Installation fails due to difference in timestamp when we try to shuffle between packages.
MCAfee is really great end protection to any sort of organization but there is only one scenario I really feel it is inappropriate. Whenever a scan is performed, the system CPU utilization goes up 100 percent. This is one of the priority cases where McAfee needs to optimize system performance and also add customized threat feeds. If these two things are fixed, then I would definitely give a 10 to McAfee.

  • Price, it's fairly expensive.
If you're looking for a well established product that many other products integrate with, McAfee ePO is a good choice. It provides one pane of glass to your protection infrastructure; DLP, antivirus, email protection, etc. The product, however, will NOT handle unknown/0-day threats which can be an issue in many organizations where they may be hit with ransomware targeted directly at them.

We are using it across the whole organization. McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator is providing us with anti-virus, host intrusion protection, and a way to manage all of our PCs through one console.
  • Systems Manager. We are able to view all the systems in our environment in one dashboard. This gives us the chance to see when PCs last communicated with our McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) server and if they are up to date on their virus definitions.
  • Ease of pushing out anti-virus to our endpoints.
  • Agentless Virtual Machine anti-virus. No need to have anti-virus on the VM it goes on the ESXi host which scans the datastores.
  • Clunky interface.
  • Lots of information but not presented neatly.
  • More configuration needed to stop some of the bigger exploits.

It's great for managing a large company with a lot of endpoints. It's a great way to feel confident that your environment is secure. It gives a great perspective of what is happening in your environment and helps to pinpoint any suspicious activity that is going on.

It's not very appropriate for smaller organizations. Unless there is a dedicated person working through it all day it could become overwhelming for a small team.
